Midnight Madness by Cardboard Galaxy

Two amazing things occurred this week! Firstly, Bobb from Cardboard Galaxy completely flattered us by sending us his most recent diorama creation which features the epic May night in 1999 aka Midnight Madness! The second thing was actually how many memories this diorama unlocked for me from that night! Now for those who did not experience the very first Midnight Madness, it was the official Lucasfilm release date (May 3rd) for all Episode I merchandise in which Toys 'R' Us opened at midnight with the moniker Midnight Madness. We wrote in-depth about this night and reached out to fellow collectors 5 years ago for the 20th anniversary and you can read all about it here. Cardboard Galaxy did such a nice job recreating the look [...]

10th Anniversary Retrospective

What a journey it has been! On this day 10 years ago, I published my first article and database here on From4-LOMtoZuckuss.com and I never could have predicted what would unfold over the next decade. This is a rare moment for me where I take a moment to reflect on the events and experiences of the past due to the fact that Star Wars is omnipresent these days. It seems there is rarely time to consider accomplishments as there is always something on the horizon to prepare for, report on, experience, photograph, inventory and so on. But for right now, in the midst of preparing for the release of Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny, updating my Disney’s Droid Factory Build-a-Droid Guide and [...]

Exclusive Reveal: Black Series 13th Battalion Trooper

We are delighted to share with fans and collectors an exclusive reveal of the next Gaming Greats Black Series figure! The 13th Battalion Trooper from Jedi: Fallen Order will be joining the 6" line next Spring. This figure will be available for pre-order this St. Patrick's Day, March 17th, at 1 PM EST. Eric Franer, Hasbro's Star Wars Brand Team Product Designer, had this to say about the figure: The 13th Battalion Clone Trooper has a really striking pattern across their chest, and they have a similar color palette to the 212th battalion — but we wanted to make sure the color felt unique. It was so much fun to see the flashbacks to Cal Kestis as a young padawan and interacting with Jaro Tapal’s [...]

Finn, my 10-year-old, delivered it to my office had no idea what was inside but upon discovering it was Darth Revan's Force FX Elite lightsaber he began jumping around and begging we open it immediately.
