Granite City Comic Con Brings Star Wars To North East Of Scotland
Reported by BrianC (Follow on Twitter) on 30 Apr 2016 22:18



Granite City Comic Con held its second annual show today in the UK's oil capital of Aberdeen.

With Star Wars guests Paul Blake (Greedo), Garrick Hagon (Biggs) and Shane Rimmer (Rebel Technician) from A New Hope on hand to give the show a Star Wars feel.  Artists Gary Erskine (X-Wing Rogue Squadron), John Wagner (Boba Fett), and Tanya Roberts (Clone Wars) added to a Star Wars vibe by showcasing and retailing their art.

A Star Wars specific panel was held with Rimmer, Blake, and Hagon recalling fun tales from the Star Wars set as well as fielding questions from the passionate floor.  Hagon brought a great reaction from the crowd by fanning the flames of an on-line rumour that Diego Luna in Rogue One could be playing Biggs.  Hagon admired Luna's moustache and sang the prasies of the new actor to the Star Wars universe, an actor he worked with a few years back.



A large number of Star Wars cosplayers filled the floors, with Stormtroopers, Kylo Ren's, Vader's and Rey's throughout the crowd.

Our good friend Darth Elvis and the Imperials brought the curtain down on an incredible day with a double set of the Kings' greatest Star Wars hits at the events after party.  The King can next be seen at the o2 the night before Celebration, at the special fan gig #Cantina - tickets remain on sale.

An incredible show, brilliantly organised and with a wonderful vibe continues tomorrow Sunday 1st May.  A limited number of tickets remain available.  I for one can't wait for next years show.

Official Site: Think Big, Play Small: The History Of Star Wars Micro Machines, Part 3
Reported by Mark (Follow on Twitter) on 30 Apr 2016 16:10

Tim Veekhoven returns to the classic Micro Machine sets of the 90's over at StarWars.com.

Initially, three playsets were announced, one from each movie (back in the ’90s, there were just three movies, remember). After the success of the first sets, more would follow. The playsets were packed in beautifully-decorated boxes that featured a small window box where you could see what figures and ship/vehicle were included. After a few years (in 1997), the package was changed into a “striped design.” The front of each box had beautiful original art and a small photo of the actual toy. The back of the box showed a large photo of the toy, the included mini-accessories, all of the playset’s features, and more Micro Machines sets that were sold at the time. Each playset also included a sheet of tiny stickers you had to attach to the set.

Official Site: What's In A Droid: Getting To The Heart Of The Galaxy's Greatest Companions
Reported by Mark (Follow on Twitter) on 29 Apr 2016 21:09

Catrina Dennis looks into the droids lot in life over at StarWars.com.

“We don’t serve their kind here.”
Whether they’re being denied entry to a sleazy cantina or serving as punching bags for irritable Imperial officers, one terrible fact has rung far too true throughout the growing history of Star Wars stories: It ain’t easy being a droid. Commonly treated as though they’re worth even less than the tools they were built to be, the often complex and highly advanced droids that feature in many of our favorite stories have been, time and time again, tossed to the sidelines in some form or another. While emotions and other elements like friendship, heartbreak, and even bloodlust are seen as natural or expected of sentient life forms, droids are often denied that sort of agency by the people that surround them. While this is often seen as commonplace within the context of the story, the denial of that complexity has proven to be a serious underestimation, particularly when it involves armed droids built (or modified) for murder.

Jedi News Roleplay Review: Star Wars: Age of Rebellion - Strongholds Of Resistance
Reported by Jonathan (Follow on Twitter) on 29 Apr 2016 18:00
Show Full Story

Strongholds of Resistance provides thorough descriptions of several Rebel bases, Alliance Worlds, and the NPCs that your group of Rebels may encounter in these locations. It offers players three new species to craft characters from and a panoply of vehicles and gear to help characters carry out dangerous Rebel assignments. For Game Masters, it includes new modular encounters which can serve as single-session adventures or be easily integrated into your Age of Rebellion campaign.

I like locations to game in and this book gives me those locations in spades, along with some new equipment, races, ships and encounters. If you're looking for a handbook to give your places new things to do, new places to see, and experience some of the key locations in the Rebellion such as Echo Base... well, you'll be launching strikes against the Empire from these fortified places before you know it, and after your operations you'll be looking forward to getting back 'home' to a meal and some R&R, and maybe a quick dip in a bacta tank.

Official Site: How Book & Comic Adaptations Expanded & Changed The Star Wars Films Pt 2
Reported by Mark (Follow on Twitter) on 29 Apr 2016 17:21

Join Sander de Lange as he investigates the differences between the novel and comic adaptations versus the movies themselves over at StarWars.com.

Last time, we explored the various adaptations and other works that expanded on the original trilogy movies in an era when there were few ways to relive a story by ways of home media. Now for the prequels we arrive in a time where re-watching a movie has never been easier. But did that make novelizations obsolete, or were there reasons to still read them? Turns out that there are many reasons to keep devouring the pages of these adaptations!
