East Coast Road Trip Haul (2019)

Awesome finds at fun little book shops in the West Virginia and the other Virginia. I believe in buying used books, keeping them in good shape and giving them more than one life.

From top to bottom:

  • The New Rebellion (1996)
  • X-Wing: Iron Fist (1998)
  • Tales from the Mos Eisley Cantina (1995)
  • A Guide to the Star Wars Universe (1984)
  • Splinter of the Mind’s Eye (1978 but couldn’t find the date of this reprint)
  • Shield of Lies (1996)
  • Smuggler’s Run: A Han Solo and Chewbacca Adventure (2015)
  • The Weapon of a Jedi: A Luke Skywalker Adventure (2015)
  • Dark Forces: Soldier for the Empire (1998 reprint)
  • Dark Forces: Rebel Agent (1998)
  • Guide to the Star Wars Worlds Trilogy (2004)

Shout-outs to Books and Other Found Things in Leesburg, Virginia and Fuzzy Dog Books and Music in Charles Town, West Virginia. Might I add that Fuzzy Dog had possibly the best organized Star Wars section I’ve ever seen, with every arc/series grouped together. It wasn’t in chronological order, but at least some order helps when you’re hunting down bits and pieces of larger series!

It’s been a great week for books and figures. . .

The Empire grows stronger with the addition of a cold-climate range trooper, elite Death Star trooper, cunning Grand Moff Tarkin, and the ever-useful IT-O interrogator droid. I lucked out big at Target on two successive trips – and here I thought I’d have to hunt a while for Tarkin.

And thanks to a used book shop not far from home (Last Exit books in Kent, Ohio) I managed to pick up quite a few legends novels (as well as a new copy of Streets of Shadows from Barnes and Noble and Last Shot, which was on sale at Target) These will all make fine additions to my collection and backlog of Legends series I still need to read through, though Last Shot will probably come next seeing as Solo arrives next month.

Solo Toys!

The Walmart near me had Solo toys a day before the soft release date! Emphasis on had. They were pretty wiped out already. But I did manage to find some toys I found pretty interesting…

The Dark Lord is Here: Black Series Revan Review

“Who I am is not important. My message is.” He is the ultimate story of hero-turned-villain, and he was able to redeem himself after his fall from valiant Jedi to Sith conqueror. Revan is finally immortalized in six-inch Black Series format – so how does the new figure measure up to this legend? Continue reading “The Dark Lord is Here: Black Series Revan Review”
