Who is the luckiest groom in the world? The answer is easy after seeing this photo from the wedding of Leslie Seiler and Paul Kingston. This Toronto couple's wedding party was photographed being pursued by a trio of the newly released The Vintage Collection Endor AT-ATs! Congrats to the newlyweds and lets hope these Jedi have Force Speed! Click the pic to see their appearance on Good Morning America Live.
Artist Rob Burden is in the last few hours of his Kickstarter campaign to create some "Epic Paintings of Star Wars Action Figures"! Now this project has already been funded in an excess of $7K ; Burden is now working on funding a third painting by reaching a goal of $34,000. Whether you support this or not it will be exciting to see the end results. Click the pic above to check out his Kickstarter video and other oil painting he has done on Star Wars action figures.
So who do we thank - Kenner for taking a chance or Twentieth Century Fox for being so convincing! Thanks to Andrew's Toyz for sharing the significance of this day.
The site Polish Star Wars Collector has posted some great pics of some of the earliest bootleg figures to be released after the infamous Turkish Uzay bootlegs. Pictured above is the first wave to be released (in 1980) and therefore some of the rarest out there. They even have them for sale if you are willing to drop a cool 15 grand. A little steep for our blood but 4LOMKUSS.COM is a strong believer in the "if its worth it to you policy" so if these are a must-have or missing from your collection then click the pic above to check'em out. As for us, we are headed to the craft store because these would be a blast to customize!
Super fans of the force Kyle Newman and Paul Bateman have just released a fantastic poster for Newman's hilarious star tribute to Return of the Jedi. Encircled by vintage ROTJ figures this poster is a great tribute in and of itself as it is modeled after the classic 1-year anniversary poster for A New Hope. If you haven't seen this short documentary yet then click the pic above to head over to Entertainment Weekly to check it out.

Lego customizer Eric "Baron Sat" Druon has created his own version of the Death Star. Baron Sat's version is based on the vintage cardboard Death Star playset released in 1978. This vintage cardboard Death Star playset was not released in the United States and as such is missing from many a collection. It was released in the United Kingdom by Palitoys, in France by Meccano, in Australia by Toltoys and in Canada by Kenner Canada. There are variations among the four versions but overall they are generally the same playset. Click the pics above to see more pics from this great tribute to an elusive playset.
This week many online retail stores have put up for pre-sell the first waves of The Black Series and the Saga Legends series. Exciting as it is to soon have new figures to hunt; we here at 4LOMKUSS.COM are asking the question - where would we be right now if Lucasfilm had not sold the Star Wars franchise to the Walt Disney Company.
