  • In sad news, Vonda N. McIntyre, the author of the Star Wars Legends novel The Crystal Star, has passed away.

She will be missed, but her books shall live on.

Toy Review: Jabba’s Sail Barge

March 12, 2019 at 11:33 am | Posted in Star Wars, Toys & Collectibles | Leave a comment

Well the barge has arrived, and this thing is awesome. It’s also huge. Here’s a look at what you might be missing out on.

The barge started with Hasbro’s HasLab, a crowdfunded projected that got 8,810 backers. Only 5,000 were needed for the project to get the greenlight but participants had to lay down a whopping $500 dollars to get their own Vintage Collection Jabba’s Sail Barge aka The Khetanna. There was also a long wait time, but it was worth it. Continue Reading Toy Review: Jabba’s Sail Barge…

Book News

  • StarWars.com has an excerpt from Claudia Gray’s upcoming novel Master and Apprentice.
  • IGN announced a new book The Art of Star Wars Rebels. Interestingly enough, it’s a Dark Horse/Lucasfilm project which will include commentary from Dave Filoni, Simon Kinberg and Carrie Beck and will be written by Dan Wallace, which sounds like a solid plan for success. It’ll be out this October and pre-orders are already available.

Comic News

  • Fans have been wondering if there’s any chance of them going back to Legends to tell more stories. Well, Marvel is taking the plunge, though they’re going old school and doing a Marvel Star Wars #108 one-shot that continues the old Marvel Star Wars comics line, be it only with one issue. Hopefully this trend will continue and one day we’ll get some new Legends novels with the old characters we fell in love with and got invested in. Plus more Celebration guests have been announced.
