Around here, Wal-Mart is filled with Jedi, Wookiees, Nemoidians, and Palpatines. Target is the same, but replace the Jedi with Bail and Mon. I've seen the Destroyer Droid once, and Mas Amedda about three times.

Wal-Mart actually had an assload of Clones a week ago, mostly #6, but I managed to find a few #41s. Now, they've cut their SW section in half and moved it right in between Barbie and Olsen Twin dolls. Yeah, that makes me feel cool. ::) Most of their toy space was given to giant inflatable pools too...

Target looks like they haven't restocked in ages. No Deluxe in sight, and each figure is in the exact place it was the last time I was there. I hope they restock soon, but its been 2 weeks, so who knows.

I haven't been to TRU in a few months. I don't like that store. You have to dig in those stupid crates to find anything, and it's hard to get down in there because they come up to your chest. Plus, it smells bad in there.

Wow, that's amazing! I think the yellow parts are a bit too bright, but it looks like its because of the flash. But still, WOW!

I've read these stories several times, but haven't replied since now! I really enjoy the randomness of these, and I hope to see them continue in the future... the not-so-far-away future...  ;)

I'm glad you like them, Lance. I was afraid the people who use Photoshop would kindly rip me apart for the backgrounds. If you look closely, you can notice my hackjobs, especially on the last shot. And each space shot should look like that as I only have MS Paint on my computer, so I'm glad you're a fan of them. :)

And only now, after he informed me, do I realize that Vator was being sarcastic.  :-[

These are extremely cool! You make me want to start collecting miniatures...

Thanks for the comments! I'm glad you're all enjoying it.

Vator - I can't give much away right now, but we'll see the inauguration of Mon Mothma. She has been elected as the head of the new Senate. She doesn't have any more power than regular senators, she's more like the Head Speaker. More on this later though.

Quazar - I never really thought about the head, to tell you the truth. I just kind of put it there to catch the thugs by surprise. But now that I think about it, I suppose that I could have left it out altogether.

I was going to give the thugs names, but decided not to at the last minute, since they both play very tiny roles. But I agree that names would make them seem more defined. There are tons of characters in the movies that have names that aren't revealed. But not to worry, almost every other character in the future parts has a name. :)

CHEWIE/Quazar - I'll work on the backgrounds more for the next parts. My ideal vision for this small base was really what I had here, a small landing pad and a small building. I'm improving with background effects (I think I did the space shots well for MS Paint :p), so we'll certainly seeing more planetary environments as backgrounds in future chapters.

But I'm glad you guys liked it!

BTW, CHEWIE, I really have a new respect for you and your photonovels (and everyone else who has ever made one as well). I was getting really stressed towards the end with certain shots not coming out right and currently having to replace camera batteries. You must have a ton of patience to have 10 novels under your belt. :P

Ha, I had trouble with that picture too. I'll let Vator tell you what it is though, as I don't know if it spoils the story or not...

Happy Birthday! What a great present, getting to fix the server. :P

And here we are, Part One - Assault on Briff. Enjoy!


A lone Imperial Shuttle flies toward the planet Briff, where the Imperial Remnant has just established a small base.

As the Shuttle lands, the small number of Stormtroopers and Officers walk up to greet the Passenger, General Frung, a veteran of the Clone Wars. Two thugs, who helped the Remnant find a remote location for the base, approach the Shuttle as well. One carries a briefcase of money, prepared to buy heavy assault weapons from Frung.

THUG 1 (left, whispering): Donít say anything about his face. General Frung is sensitive about his looks. Everyone says thereís a bantha under that hood.

FRUNG (In Huttese): Do you have the money?
THUG 1† (In Huttese): Itís right here. But you know our deal, General. No weapons, no money. Where are the weapons?
FRUNG (In Huttese): Relax, theyíre in the shuttle. You two follow meÖ alone.

The Thugs follow Frung into the Shuttle's interior, where Frung reveals a crate.
THUG 2 (In Huttese): Wonderful, our squadron will enjoy these upgraded blasters!
FRUNG: I'm afraid that they won't even have time to view them.
THUG 1 & 2: Wha...?

General Frung opens the crate, and the ugly head of General Frung falls out.

In the blink of an eye, "General Frung" throws off his cloak, revealing Princess Leia Organa, leading member of the New Republic! She quickly draws out her lightsaber and cuts off the arm of the first thug. The second thug, however, is able to run away.

THUG 2: It's a sham! The jig is up! The New Republic sent a Jedi! Kill it!

The Remnant Troops surround the Shuttle, waiting for the Jedi to appear.

Once again, Princess Leia uses her Jedi speed to outsmart the troops! She beheads the nearest Stormtrooper.

The rest of the troops open fire. But the Force is strong with Leia, and she deflects their fire back at them.

Having dealt with all of the Remnant soldiers, Leia sets her sights on the thug.

THUG 2: Blast you, Jedi! I'll have to kill you myself!

The thug picks up a large staff and lunges at Leia...

The thug gains the upper hand, pushing Leia back...

The thug steps back, about to finish Leia off. But with one use of a Force Push...

Leia completely turns the tide of the battle, pushing the thug to the edge of a nearby cliff. The thug drops his staff hundreds of thousands of feet to the bottom.

THUG 2: No, please, Master Jedi! Please, leave me be! Iím just an honest bounty hunter! We thought there was a bounty on you!
LEIA: No, you were working for the Remnant. It looks like you were beginning to build a base for Remnant troops. Under the laws of the New Republic, thatís a felony. But there is a way you can avoid punishment.
THUG 2: Please, please, Iíll do anything!

LEIA: Youíll come back to Coruscant with me. Luke Skywalker will ask you some questions. Answer correctly, and you could be rewarded.
THUG 2: No! No questioning! Youíll reward me by sending me to prison!

The thug steps back and falls off of the cliff. Leia shakes her head as she watches him disappear from eyesight. Leia walks back into the Shuttle, where her pilot, Han Solo, awaits her return.

HAN: What happened out there? Are you okay? Whereís the second thug?
LEIA: I'm fine. And he killed himself.

Leia presses a button on the control panel, and Luke Skywalker, along with Admiral Dorovan Elick and Senator Tridia Forgs, appear on the viewscreen.
LUKE: Leia, Han, itís good to hear from you both. Was your mission on Briff a success?
LEIA: Well, a Remnant base was being established, with two bounty hunters overseeing the operations. One of them decided that death was better than questioning, but the other one is in the shuttle with me. You may want to prepare him a robotic arm.

LUKE: Well Iím sure we can still get some information out of him. Iíll send a squad of troops to the base and mop up any Imperials that may show up later. For now, we need you here on Coruscant. The inauguration of Mon Mothma is in a few hours. Han, how fast can you get back here?
HAN: Weíll get back safe and sound, Luke. We wonít miss Monís moment under the sun.
LUKE: *chuckling* Well, be safe. May the Force be with you.
LEIA: May the Force be with you too.

The Shuttle takes off, and heads back to Coruscant...

I tried to add it to my cart just for kicks, and I got the same message DSJ did.

I'm getting an In Stock message. I'd order some, but my feelings are the same as Dressel's.

I just hope retail doesn't go overload on Wave 1 with the 4 Anakins per case. I have a bad feeling that they will clog pegs and prevent newer sets from coming in... :-\

I really don't see how they could pull off a "Luke growing up" story. I can see it now...

"This week on Star Wars, Biggs and Luke get in trouble at school for a prank they didn't do! Now Uncle Owen is on the warpath! Can Luke save himself before he is forbidden from going to Toshi Station ever again? Find out next week, after a BRAND SPANKIN SEXY NEW episode of the OC, right here on Fox!"
