The Last Jedi / Star Wars Toys Sales Fall With 'The Last Jedi'
« on: January 19, 2018, 02:39 AM »
I came across this article regarding a slump in the sales of the toys for the TLJ movie, stemming from a variety of possible causes from changes in the what kids are interested in to movie fatigue.  I know I’m not seeing the figures and ships move so quickly this time around, despite them being decent products... And I definitely wasn’t as motivated to get a ton of new toys for the new movie.  What this trend holds for the future of our hobby is anyone’s guess, but it is an interesting little read.

Not sure where to put this post, so moderators please feel free to move to the correct forum if not here.

TV-9D9 / Cool Indie Star Wars Film: Rebel Scum

Not sure if anyone has already posted about this or seen it, but I came across this 9-minute independent Star Wars film tonight and was actually rather impressed: 

It uses real locations, accurate props, and stop-motion animation giving it that realistic feel the OT films had.  Plus Gustav Holst's classical scores from "The Planets" work surprisingly well with Star Wars, giving us a taste of what might have been, musically, had Spielberg not connected Lucas with John Williams...

Enjoy :)

Newbies / First Time Poster, Long Time Fan

Just wanted to say hello!  I've followed updates and information on the Jedi Defender website for several years now, but have only just decided to join the forums.  I have been a member and regular poster of the Small Scale Headquarters (GPXD) military collectibles website since 2003 and "know" Jesse James from that site.

While my major collecting focus has been on realistic small scale military items, I also dabble in Star Wars.  In fact, I've collected SW items since the early 1980s, but the majority of my collection dates from the last 10-12 years.  While I may be new to this board, I am rather informed about recent SW trends, items, product lines - not to mention the films, technology, and EU history and the like ;)

In my offline life, I come from a scholarly background where I have a Master's degree in History, and several (small) published works.  I've traveled the world and lived in both England and Italy.  Currently, I work as a consultant and grant writer for a political consulting firm in my town, writing state and federal grants for a myriad of cities, counties, school districts, nonprofits, and private corporations in central California.

So, its good to be on this board and I look forward to some interesting discussions ;D
