Our good friend Jayson Krebsbach from Yakface.com was featured on a new podcast entitled Toy Run recently. A man who in our opinion typically speaks softly but carries a big stick; it was especially neat to hear so much candor with regards to his personal background in Star Wars collecting as well as gaining a deeper understanding of Yakface.com. The rich legacy and history of his site has left an indelible mark on the collecting community and its impact has been felt by so many within it that collect Star Wars collectibles. We highly suggest you check it out!

Although we often share different opinions from one another, I wanted to take a moment and honor the massive body of work by colleague Adam Pawlus. He has added more to the Star Wars collecting community than perhaps you realize. Not only is this the 20 year anniversary of The Power Of The Force "2" line, this month also celebrates 20 years of Adam's contributions to Star Wars fans... while he was a youngster. Without him, many people on the fan sites you currently read wouldn't be here, me included. Thank you Adam for the tremendous and selfless additions you have made to the hobby. Read about his rich history (as well as getting death threats) by clicking through.
Happy 15th birthday/anniversary to our friends at colleagues at Sandtroopers.com! Click through for more!
Despite some server issues which hopefully have completely passed, our friends at Yakface.com are back and better than ever. Be sure to check out their revamped site. Looking good guys!
