I have a passion for collecting vintage Star Wars merchandise from the late 70's. Action figures, comics, trading cards etc - anything related to the first Star Wars movie. But why only until 1980? It's not that I don't love The Empire Strikes Back and beyond (I really do), but there is something about that first wave of Star Wars mania that really grips me, back when it was all fresh and exciting...

The Solo Adventures



This doesn't really have anything to do with collecting, but it's just too awesome to not post about. Created by students of the Dave School (www.daveschool.com) this short animation focusing on one of Han and Chewie's pre-Star Wars adventures won the fan film award at the recent Star Wars V celebration.

I absolutely love it. I've often wondered what a series dealing with the classic characters done in the spirit and style of 'The Clone Wars' would look like and this seems pretty close to the mark. And whoever voiced Han pretty much nails Harrison Ford's cynical tones. Great stuff. Check it out here

Star Wars to moja ulubiona seria filmów i komiksów. Ostatnio do mojej domowej kolekcji wpadają też różne gadżety związane z tym uniwersum. Jednym z moich niedawnych zakupów była skarbonka 3d z podobizną Lorda Vadera, którą to znalazłem na https://4gift.pl/gadzety/gadzety-filmowe/gadzety-ze-star-wars. Oprócz gadżetów zbieram też różne wydania komiksów i filmów osadzonych w świecie Star Wars.
