We can't count how many times the entire collecting community has lost their minds over one bad photograph of a good collectible (not in any way a reference to the Princess Leia figure briefly displayed last week in London), but it isn't often that the opposite happens. When we saw the lead picture on this auction it caught our interests, but after clicking through we were thinking it may actually be a TRA. Follow the link above and let us know what you think.

Michael Golden created some of the nicest sequential art in the original Marvel Star Wars comic book series. His style during this period of his career is a clear inspiration for many artists that followed him including Arthur Adams and Todd Mcfarlane. While we'd rather have an original piece of his Star Wars art on our wall, the Michael golden sketch cover currently up for grabs may do. Follow the link above to have a closer look!

Comic book legend Ron Frenz had a great run on Marvel's original Star Wars series. Over the years, many of his layout sketches from his work on the book have surfaced, which often shed light on the artist's method. Right now there are two pages available that led to two iconic covers from his run. Follow the link above to check them out!

The new 75159 UCS Death Star has been announced and it's 99.5% re-release of a set, at an additional $100, that was only retired less than 12 months ago. How do you feel about this addition to the LEGO Star Wars line?
Ecstatic: it's LEGO Star Wars after all!
Great: I didn't get a chance to buy 10188.
Fair to middling: I like to build and it has some nice new additions.
meh: the UCS range is meant to be special.
Harrumph: 10188 is cheaper on eBay.
Fuming: abject failure in market research and imagination.
