Lords of the SithThe book Lords of the Sith is the BEST Star Wars book I have ever read. (Okay it is the first Star Wars book I have ever read, but it makes me wonder why haven’t I read more before.)

I can thank the folks over at TheMarySue.com for pointing it and a bunch of other cool stuff out to me. So, hey, Thanks!

Normally, I hate books that bounce between characters every other chapter, but in this one I didn’t mind it so much. Except for that one time when I had to actually back up and re-read some things because I got lost.

This has a compelling story, that I believe it is set between the Clone Wars and the new Rebels series (which I recently watched and got so hooked on — I didn’t want to get wrapped up in it). Even though from the beginning we know the rebels (or in this case the Ryloth freedom fighters as there is no rebellion as of yet) are going to fail. Their goal in the book is to hunt down and kill Darth Vader and the Emperor (yeah, we all know who actually does do that and it isn’t a bunch of Twi’leks. But boy was I really starting to root for them and hope they could actually pull it off.

Like I said you wind up having to keep several stories straight, Vader & the Emperor, Cham and his Twi’lek rebels, Moff Mors (the Imperial in charge of Ryloth and the first LGBQT character in the Star Wars cannon) and Belkor (The Imperial traitor). So you can see why I got lost for a bit.

Call me crazy (hahaha very funny), but I love this Wampa Rug. It is an officially licensed Star Wars product made by ThinkGeek.com (gotta love those geeks).

I already have the TaunTaun sleeping bag (and I have to make a lightsaber noise every time I open it too). It keeps me toasty warm on those cold Hoth winter nights.

Apparently the slave girl is not included with the Wampa Rug, sorry fan boys.

Mini Mag Display StandsNormally my post of things I want turn out to be cool expensive gadgets I’ll never get, but this week it is actually something I will be placing an order for soon. These magnetic action figure display stands are pretty cool. The stands fit standard action figure peg holes (as long as the figure’s foot comes with a hole) and have a magnet on the bottom. The displays are either flat sheets or multi-tiered pieces of powder coated metal to keep your figures where you put them. I should be getting mine in the next couple of weeks then if I like it I’ll have to buy more as I have way too many toys to display.

I’ll also have to figure out what I am doing with all my action figures with no hole in the foot like those darn Diamond Select Star Trek figures of mine. Do I drill a peg hole (taking the chance of ruining the figure and or devaluing it) or use Velcro (which could also ruin the figure)? Well guess I’ll worry about that when the time comes.

Star Wars Clone Wars Outdoors

Went to see the animated movie Star Wars: The Clone Wars at a drive in theater last night. The film was okay, better than I expected. The concession stand was selling generic LED light swords (light sabers). They were kid of cool. No wonder they sold quite a few. Watching the kids playing with them […]

Steampunk Star Wars Figures

I have always been a fan of the folks who can make custom action figures especially when they are such high quality as those over at Sillof’s Workshop. But these are no ordinary custom figures. What do I mean by ordinary? I guess to clarify; I would say in this case ordinary means creating figures […]
