The Guatemalan Star Wars Fan Club writes in with a special request for the fan community:

Hi Guys! Today The Guatemalan Star Wars Fan Club "Yavin IV" is calling out to all Star Wars fans to help us make Tikal National Park (Yavin IV and home to the Rebels secret base in A New Hope) the 8th World Wonder according to the Virtual Tourist website. You can cast you vote once a day in the following link: http://www.virtualtourist.com/8thwonder. Tikal is the first option in the 7th row from the bottom up. Thanks for your help and may the Force be with you!

Do your part and keep voting for Tikal National Park to help get this amazing Star Wars filming location into the top spot. You may remember this story from our own Shane Turgeon who visited these ruins in 2011 with a small group of fans and the legendary model maker Lorne Peterson.

Next September marks the twentieth anniversary of Hasbro's Kenner The Power Of The Force action figure collection. The line introduced a new generation of children to the wonderful world of Star Wars toys and ushered in the modern collectibles we all enjoy today. Our ever-inquisitive Probe Droid is actively searching all corners of the galaxy to find out if there is interest in products that commemorate this very significant 1995 release.
I'd be into a Hasbro The Lost Line style assortment
I'd love to see Gentle Giant make a Jumbo Kenner 1995 Luke Skywalker
I'm behind both of these ideas!
I got started in 1995, but I have no interest in such a concept.
It isn't for me.
