Saber-Stand News Flash!

Posted by Chuck | March 28, 2007 at 06:31 PM EDT |

     One of the big problems with the Force FX Lightsaber stands that are included with your expensive sabers is that they display your saber horizontally, with no support on the plastic blade. Over time, that blade will sag and hold it's shape, causing the blade to be permanently warped. The solution: either tack a nail in the wall to hold it up, or visit Saber-Stand.com and check out their vertical stand solution! Storing the saber vertically not only saves your blade from warping, but it also looks better and saves space! Visit Saber-Stand today for more details!

Star Wars Action News – Episode 80

Posted by Chuck | March 05, 2007 at 07:04 AM EDT |

     We bring you almost more Star Wars than you can handle in this week's Star Wars Action News. First, there has been a lot of talk heating up the message boards this week about two new pieces of Gentle Giant news.  First, a final version of the Clone Wars Obi-Wan statue has reportedly been found, and it does not look like the prototype.  Gentle Giant has not confirmed or denied this information but Marjorie and Arnie discuss the news.  Also, Gentle Giant has begun a raffle for its Premiere Guild members to buy the Black and White Boba Fett maquette.  We discuss that as well..

Posted by Chuck | March 02, 2007 at 03:11 PM EDT |

     The Titanium version of Luke's X-Wing fighter, complete with Dagobah Swamp muck, is today's Visual Guide Update. Incom built the X-wing starfighter to stand up to a lot of punishment, but this one has gone well above and beyond. Luke piloted it through the blistering crossfire of the Death Star trench, fought his way through the Imperial blockade at Hoth, and then navigated an abandoned hyperspace lane to the lost world of Dagobah...
