Hey folks, it's your friendly neighborhood Social Media Director here. Part of my role at TheForce.net is to make sure that you can stay connected to our news and content from a variety of sites, and Fan Days III this weekend will be no exception. Our team is converging on the Plano Center with phones, cameras, and laptops to bring all the news and all the excitement to fans back home.

Of course you can expect TheForce.Net & Rebelscum.com to be updated, but you should also be aware of another great social media tool we'll be using to bring you instant coverage: Twitter. Our team has set up a variety of feeds, and you can see a list of them below.

TheForce.Net - @theforcenet

Rebelscum - @rebelscumnews

The ForceCast - @forcecast

Dustin Roberts, TFN Content Manager - @r2d2central

Jason Swank, ForceCast Host - @jasonswank

Jimmy Mac, ForceCast Host - @JimmyMacRadio

Jovial Jay Shepard - @JovialJay

Eric Geller, TFN Social Media Director - @erier2003

We'll be posting text, photos, and maybe even brief videos (you never know!), so keep it tuned to Twitter for the latest out of Plano.

Another great resource is a live feed we've set up that will pull in any mention of Fan Days III on Twitter and in blog posts. The live feed, which can be found here, pulls in tweets, photos, and blog posts in real-time. As long as a tweet has the words "Fan Days III" or the Twitter-specific tag "#fandays3", you'll see it on the page almost immediately after it is sent to Twitter. This is a great way to get a sense of the atmosphere at the show from the words and images of your fellow fans. So click back here throughout the show to see what's happening!

Remember, stay with TheForce.net & Rebelscum.com throughout the weekend, and you'll get the most comprehensive coverage of Fan Days III thanks to our team on the ground.


UPDATE: A few "pre-show" preview pics have been added by our team to the Twitter feeds listed above. Follow the action all weekend long beginning right now!

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.
