It was another outstanding Rebelscum Halloween Costume Contest! Our 12th annual contest, to be exact. As usual, we saw some really terrific entries this year, and narrowing the field down to a select few winners was no easy task. Below you'll find the rules for the contest, along with a complete gallery of entries - and of course our big winners for the year.

Congrats to the winners and a big thanks to everyone who entered!

Back before the world wide web and social media ruled our shopping habits there was a long-established practice of driving around all the nearby toy stores to hunt down the latest releases. Obviously times have changed and online retail is far more important than it was twenty-five years ago - but has it killed the toy run? What was your shopping experience over the Triple Force Friday product launch weekend?
I managed to find everything I wanted in stores!
I found some but had to resort to big box websites to complete my haul.
I didn't bother stepping outside and ordered everything online.
I haven't bought any of the TFF product yet. Roll on clearance sales.
I'm waiting for the TV series/movie release before I commit.
I've so over it, no more Star Wars collecting for me.
