Re: Anyone reading the new canon novels?

Yeah, really happy to find Sloane in the book, really liked the character in aftermath and where she ends up, so looking forward to how she gets on here.

Re: Anyone reading the new canon novels?

Finished Ashoka yesterday, great read and feels like part of the rebels/clone wars cartoons but obviously in paper form :) Given the gap between the end of the book and the start or rebels there is space for more... Fingers crossed. Started in on New Dawn today, 40 pages in and enjoying the set up, ...

Re: Marvel Comics

To be fair I think that run of titles from 98 through to mid 00's was probably DH's best run of comics and given their history prior to that, that's saying something. Certainly better than anything that came after, which was a real mixed back of crap. I recall there was a crossover event that ran fr...

Re: favourite modern figure

Using a stock image rather than my own, but this guys was my favourite Kenner figure and probably my favourite modern figure (the vintage collection Quinlan Vos comes a close second)

Re: Marvel Comics

Just gave in to a moment of weakness and bought two of the 'legacy' volumes (Rise of the Sith & Clone Wars), slippery slope as i will now be tempted to get the Old Republic and Legacy ones as those three together were the best Dark Horse runs. Of course i have all of them already but i am a suck...

Re: Marvel Comics

To be clear, when I say I saw it, it was on a forbidden planet email... Not quite seen but I assume it is out tomorrow as those mailers always come out before comic book Wednesday releases.

Re: List of Star Tours Items needed for focus.

Should also add there was a chase figure hidden within the serise six packs, so if you got all five figures you could build a sixth. Never opened the packed so haven't ever seen one, but the photos are hilarious. Goofy and TC14 carrying a massive silver dildo...

Re: List of Star Tours Items needed for focus.

Yeah, all mine. I was hooked on them the second I saw them so bought them as and when they came out, so not too expensive back in the day. Although the exclusives were harder to track down so cost a bit more, and I liked that they were guenuine exclusives. I haven't looked at what is about now, but ...

Re: List of Star Tours Items needed for focus.

There was a wave of muppets as Star Wars characters, but it was shite so I didn't bother with it.
Given new films and new characters I hope Disney restart this, they were a great line, full of fun and collectabilty...
Anyway, last picture is a classic, now Star Wars but Mickey as Indy... Love it.

Finally and for reasons I can't fathom, one year Disney skipped Star Wars and opted for pirates instead.

Re: List of Star Tours Items needed for focus.

Now we move to the exclusives, and there are a few. There were a couple limited to celebration (2 years running) can't remember the others but they were release with a limited number run matching the year the film they were based on was released. So for the new hope figure there were 1977 released e...
