DarthMac’s Customs & Collection

This week I had the great pleasure of viewing Chris Moorehead’s home action figure display. He has just in the past few years begun creating a displayed collection despite collecting as a child and beginning anew with the modern line around 2005. He, like many collectors born in the 70’s and early 80’s, only collects Original Trilogy figures and I had the privilege of being only the second person to view his newly organized collection.  Chris has a great and purposeful display of both vintage and modern Star Wars figures.  What makes his collection really stand out is the amazing custom display pieces he has created.  Those who are active on forums at sites like Rebelscum.com, where he is better known has High Admiral “DarthMac”, [...]

Star Wars Marvel Comics Return!

Although today's San Diego Comic-Con announcement was expected it was still fantastic to finally hear!  Starting in January, Marvel Comics will once again publish new Star Wars comic books starting with Star Wars #1.  The on-going series takes place right after A New Hope, much like Dark Horse's current and final series of the same name does. Starting one month later will be their on-going series entitled Star Wars: Darth Vader taking place in the same time frame and showing the rise of The Dark Lord of Sith to his fierce-some self in Empire. And finally Star Wars: Princess Leia a 5-issue mini-series begins in March.  What struck us immediately is the ascetic of Leia's uniform as it, much like all Star Wars media projects [...]
