SYNOPSIS
The Force Was With Him

"There was a stirring," Luke whispered. "A profound disturbance in the Force. I've felt it before, weakly. I felt it most strongly when Ben Kenobi was killed."

Princess Leia inhaled in terror, her eyes widening. "No, not him again, not here."

"Something blacker than night stirs the Force, Leia," Luke said. "This Governor Essada must have contacted him, sent him here. He'd be especially interested in locating you and me."

"Who would?" the old crone Halla half-shouted in frustration.

Leia's hands trembled. She fought to still them. "Lord Darth vader," she whispered in horror.

Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia find themselves desperately racing Imperial stormtroopers for a sacred gem that can increase the power of the Force...

Moving into our nineteenth year of shooting Star Wars collectibles, we pause for a moment to consider legacy. Our photography is obviously recognizable because of the blue background, but looking further back, especially after we published The Man Who Shot Luke Skywalker galleries last December, we've put our minds to offering more classic Kenner backgrounds to our galleries. Follow this link to have a look and then let us know if you'd like to continue to explore this train of thought.
Focus on the Rebelscum legacy and keep it blue.
I love the nod to Kenner's history. I'd love to see Rebelscum embrace a more colourful vision.
