Star Wars Reveals at Disney+ Investor Day 2020

Bob Chapek’s introduction gave us a hint of what we were in for later on in the four hour video aimed at investors, and it was a wonderful hint, 10 new Star Wars series/films. After the first selection of shows from FX and Star, Kathy Kennedy stepped up to discuss Lucasfilm’s offerings for Disney+. AndContinue reading “Star Wars Reveals at Disney+ Investor Day 2020”

#CollectionCorner – Lego Millennium Falcon (2019 Version)

When it was initially rumoured that we were getting a third Falcon in five years I did wonder if Lego were just putting some placeholder sets out for ‘Triple Force Friday’. That first wave of ‘The Rise of Skywalker’ sets were pretty much a bunch of updated/upgraded sets (other than the Pasaana Speeder Chase). WhenContinue reading “#CollectionCorner – Lego Millennium Falcon (2019 Version)”

Solo: A Star Wars Story by Mur Lafferty Audiobook Review

Firstly, yes, it has taken me this long to get around to reading/listening to this book. I just never really got around to it, I got it on Kindle a while back but I sometimes struggle with E-Books, I prefer the actual thing than holding a device when I’m reading. But hey, we all haveContinue reading “Solo: A Star Wars Story by Mur Lafferty Audiobook Review”

Triple Force Fail

This years “big” roll out of new Star Wars merchandise hasn’t exactly gone with a bang has it? There are people all over the world (well, all over Facebook and Twitter) that are complaining about the lack of selection wherever they have gone to buy the new toys. I for one have visited the localContinue reading “Triple Force Fail”

The Tragedy of Darth Maul

Warning – Some Spoilers for ‘The Clone Wars’ and ‘Rebels’ ahead. I have harped on about that Teaser Trailer for ‘The Phantom Menace’ a lot this year (or it feels like it anyway), especially the shot of Darth Maul igniting the double blades lightsaber that ruined ‘The Mask of Zorro’ for me (well, distracted meContinue reading “The Tragedy of Darth Maul”

#MakeSolo2Happen

A year ago ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ was released to good reviews, excellent fan reactions but not much more. Despite breaking even at the box office, it really didn’t live up to its franchise standards, and unfortunately it changed the direction Lucasfilm was taking with their future films. The reasons for its low boxContinue reading “#MakeSolo2Happen”

Life Debt Tidbits – Issue 12

With Star Wars Celebration in full swing we have got some major news about The Mandalorian and Star Wars content on Disney+ and it didn’t come from SWCC.

Star Wars Celebration 2019 – The Beginning

Today’s the day, fans across the world have been waiting… not quite patiently… for this weekend, which is honestly the biggest weekend of the year for Star Wars news. For those in attendance, today is a nice ease into the weekend. No panels, just cruising the Con Floor looking at stalls, getting tattoos, picking upContinue reading “Star Wars Celebration 2019 – The Beginning”

#Collection Corner – Cloud Rider Swoop Bikes Lego Review

The Saint has done it again. My wife was doing an online Tesco shop and asked if I wanted anything. Me being me, I know what Star Wars Lego our local branch has in stock so I casually threw out Yoda’s Hut. Later on, she turned up at my work and asked me to pickContinue reading “#Collection Corner – Cloud Rider Swoop Bikes Lego Review”

#Collection Corner – Lego AT-Hauler Review

My wife is a saint. I saw that the AT-Hauler Lego set from ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ had a decent price drop on Amazon and mentioned it in passing. The next day she asked me about it and ordered it. I started building it the day after that. It has spent the past threeContinue reading “#Collection Corner – Lego AT-Hauler Review”

#Toy Tuesday – Imperial TIE Fighter (2018)

Thanks to the first wave of Solo: A Star Wars Story sets from Lego I can finally say after two-and-a-half years that I have an Imperial TIE Fighter set. Up until now I had a few TIE Variants. Vader’s TIE Advanced, the TIE Striker, Kylo Ren’s TIE Silencer and the First Order Special Forces TIEContinue reading “#Toy Tuesday – Imperial TIE Fighter (2018)”

#Solo Sunday – The Finale – The Original Soundtrack

I have listened to the Solo: A Star Wars Story soundtrack by John Powell a few times and it is high on my list of favourite Star Wars Soundtracks. John Williams has set a very high bar for any other composers who work within the Star Wars franchise with his scores for the saga films,Continue reading “#Solo Sunday – The Finale – The Original Soundtrack”

#Toy Tuesday – Han’s Speeder

I have been after set since it was released in April, so much so that I was willing to pay the full price of £25.99, which, if you have read previous #toytuesday posts, you will know that I try to buy sets reduced. But £26 for 345 pieces is nothing to scoff at based onContinue reading “#Toy Tuesday – Han’s Speeder”

#Solo Sunday – Last Shot: A Solo Audiobook Review

As a recent convert to audiobooks when my Wife told me she had a spare credit on her Audible account I leapt at the chance to get ‘Last Shot’ by Daniel Jose Older, read by Marc Thompson, Daniel Jose Older and January LaVoy. I really want to say I loved this book. I really wantContinue reading “#Solo Sunday – Last Shot: A Solo Audiobook Review”

Fett, Phasma and Nest: Cool Costumes! Is that it?

Solo Spoilers in this post. When we first see Boba Fett in The Empire Strikes Back he’s cool. He looks cool, he sounds cool and the guy is being told by Darth Vader, the baddest of bad-asses in the Galaxy to not disintegrate people. He makes us wonder who this character is. He tracks downContinue reading “Fett, Phasma and Nest: Cool Costumes! Is that it?”

My Star Wars Life Part 16: Solo (Jan – May 2018)

Honestly, not a great deal has happened this year. I started the year as I have done the past few years, binge-reading new Star Wars Books. I blazed my way through Cobalt Squadron, Canto Bight, Shadows of The Empire (I had the urge to dip into the Legends timeline) and From A Certain Point ofContinue reading “My Star Wars Life Part 16: Solo (Jan – May 2018)”

#Toy Tuesday: Lego Imperial Patrol Battle Pack

My first Solo: A Star Wars Story Lego set. OK it’s the Imperial Battle Pack releases for the film but I’m still pretty excited for it. It’s a Battle Pack so its not a big build and its main focus is the mini-figs. As usual there are four in the set. An Imperial Officer, anContinue reading “#Toy Tuesday: Lego Imperial Patrol Battle Pack”

Solo: A SPOILER FREE Review

If you have listened to my reaction podcast (It’s right here if you haven’t) then you know I loved the film, if you could discern that in between the gushing praise and wow’s. Solo: A Star Wars Story is a love letter to the fans. It’s full of references to stuff from the Prequel andContinue reading “Solo: A SPOILER FREE Review”

Solo: One Week To Go

Spoiler Free Zone!!! With only one week to go until Solo: A Star Wars Story comes out my anticipation levels are very, very high. The only problem is, unlike the previous three cinematic instalments to the franchise, there is a longer gap between the premiere and general release. Meaning, the reviews are starting to comeContinue reading “Solo: One Week To Go”
