st Mos Eisley News Brief: Site Update

February 16, 2015, 11:11:34 AM by Darth Spice
Thanks to the many who reached out and said they missed "our presence" at Toy Fair this year.  We appreciate the continued support of our colleagues and all of you Troopers throughout the galaxy.  We do plan to return to full speed in 2015, and I do apologize for the continued stall of forward ops at here at Sandtroopers.com.  It's been a very tumultuous couple years and life has thrown some very unexpected curveballs as of late, thankfully none I do not believe I can't knock out of the park! That being said we're currently looking for a few new recruits who would like to assist me in what appears to be a very daunting task of bringing this hobby off of life support.  If you're up for the mission, contact me via the forums or our Facebook page.
