st Mos Eisley News Brief: Incoming Rogue One Product List!

April 27, 2016, 08:45:40 AM by Darth Spice
An interesting product list has turned up on a German based fan website Starwarscollector.de for Star Wars: Rogue One.  It is certainly worth looking at until Comic-con but "it must be noted that it is all the name is code-name and therefore also no pictures are of course available".

Tamashii Nations: Tamashii Nations has done it again with the next addition to the Japanese feudal-style Meisho Movie Realization line.

The special backpack is designed with meticulous detail and finished with a rusty look.

SnapTite Model Kits: The First Order Special Forces TIE Fighter, Millennium Falcon, Resistance X-Wing Fighter and Poe's X-Wing Fighter SnapTite Build & Play kits feature the all-new DuraMod Snap Design that allows you to easily build without tools, paint or glue; and each kit contains less than 20 pieces and they all feature moveable parts, light up functions or battle action sounds.

Kotobukiya: Darth Vader A New Hope Version stands nearly 12 inches tall in the classic ARTFX 1/7th scale. This high quality PVC statue is easy to assemble and fully painted so you can have your Dark Lord of the Sith in your display in no time!

F/X Lightsabers: Wield the power of your favorite Star Wars characters with these amazingly detailed adult collectible Lightsaber replicas. Power-up the lightsaber to activate the glowing light effects.  Move it to hear the sensor-controlled sound effects (power up, idle hum, clash and power down) that were digitally recorded from the films. The FX Lightsaber features a durable metal hilt and includes specially designed display base. This case assortment includes EPIV Luke Skywalker (blue), Darth Vader (red), and EPVI Luke Skywalker (Green).

st Mayor seeks 1 Billion for Lucas Museum

April 19, 2016, 12:45:07 PM by Darth Spice
It's hard to believe a but the highly controversial Lucas Museum has hit a snag. "Mayor Rahm Emanuel now says building George Lucas's museum on the lakefront will require five tax hikes, and more than $1 billion in borrowing from the state."  Being a resident of Illinois, I think it's a little bit insane to hit tax payers with the bill for the project, especially when it doesn't have much to do with the galaxy from far, far away!
