Collection of Star Wars Stuff

I peruse many Star Wars related sites on the Internet through the course of a day. Sometimes I find a few that I believe others may overlook. This is a collection of such articles/features recently published. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.
  • The Top 31 Bad Ass Star Wars Moments - A collection of scenes from all 6 movies that stand out as to why Star Wars is so amazing ... and bad ass [Galactic Binder]
  • Star Wars Q&A with Adam Pawlus - This is a weekly installment that features reader questions and answers from Adam, employed by Entertainment Earth. He shares his opinions on a vast amount of subjects and sometimes provides hints or inklings as to the future of Star Wars products. This is the most current installment, published on August 25th. The feature is updated every Monday. Send Adam your own questions and perhaps we can have him bump the number of questions he answers back to 10! [Galactic Hunter]
  • Galactic Blogger - Adam May has been adding some commentary on all things Star Wars in this format since June 2006. He occasionally has some first look images of previously unannounced Hasbro items and is quite the rumor mongerer. His posts are insightful and funny at the same time. He posts seemingly at randowm. [Galactic Hunter]
  • Reviews - Many Star Wars sites around the 'net do reviews of toys, props, games, etc. but I have found Jeff Gouse's to be the best. He focuses mostly on Hasbro items but has done some Master Replicas and Gentle Giant items, among others. He is fair and unbiased and is equally capable of praising or chastising the item and maker. Here is the most recent review, Hasbro's v-19 Torrent Starfighter. [Yodas News]
  • High Resolution Imagery - Many of the online collecting sites seem to find proof of future lines and waves early but the best maybe Jedi Insider. I have posted images from their site on here multiple times. They seem to always have a first glimpse at a new product. I definitely recommend this site as a daily visit for collectors. [Jedi Insider]
  • Collector to Collectors - For a first hand look through a collectors blog, check out this site. Eric Franks, a member of the PSWCS, does a fantastic job announcing upcoming items and collecting recent collecting news from around the 'net. He also does reviews and has his own personal checklists. [Imperial Holocron]
So there is a glimpse into a few of the daily sites that I check for my Star Wars fix. There are many more (Rebel Scum, Jedi Defender, Jedi Temple Archives, Sir Steves Guide) but I find those features above to be quite compelling. Check them out whenever you get a chance!

Great collection of links, very valuable, to Star Wars fans.

Can I add one to your list? I just created a page called Star Wars Christmas Ornaments and Decorations that is packed with information about collecting Star Wars Christmas items and includes pieces valued at up to $3,000! Some are very nice pieces but $3,000 is unbelievable...
