Before we shake our heads we'd like to preface said head shaking by stating that the subject for auction is gorgeous and we'd all love to own it. The empire Strikes Back Cloud City scene package for the classic Kenner Millennium Falcon is one of the nicest in the entire line (even if Dengar is hanging out with all the good guys). That said, what the heck is up with the starting bid and where the firetruck is the Make An Offer option? Follow the link above to have a look and let us know if you would agree to the TRA status we've bestowed on this auction.

While most of us focus our Star Wars collections on the toys released, for some collectors (myself included) another fun focus is collecting magazines promoting the feature films and thankfully there will be many to come as Episode VII gets closer to release. For instance, the next issue of GQ has Adam Driver on the cover in a very Corellian-inspired wardrobe. Click the thumbnail for a closer look. This issue is currently out in Los Angeles and New York. It will be released everywhere else on August 26.

Twenty years ago today the Star Wars Generation saw the fourth (and possibly most) significant light in a very dark tunnel when, following Timothy Zahn's Star Wars: Heir To The Empire novels, Stephen J. Sansweet's Star Wars: From Concept, To Screen, To Collectible book, and Jon Bradley Snyder's Report From The Star Wars Generation magazine, The Archive first hit the internet. The team at Rebelscum.com would like to congratulate all involved in 1994 for paving the road we all travel on today. Follow this link for Gus Lopez' statement on this important milestone and as a community, let us celebrate all that has come from the passion of all those like-minded individuals responsible!
