Star Wars Obi-Wan Kenobi Spirit Black Series Figure 1

Obi-Wan Gets An Interesting New Black Series Figure

Obi-Wan Kenobi is my favorite Star Wars character. The picture of light-side civility, he is the ultimate Jedi in my eyes.

The Ten Best John Williams Songs To Listen To On Star Wars Day

John Williams is the best film composer of all-time. His greatest achievement would be the soundtracks to the 7 films that makes up the Star Wars Saga (Rogue One is not a Saga film). Since today is Star Wars Day (May the Forth be With You!) and if you are like me and have to […]

Kenner Vintage Was All The Rage At Star Wars Celebration
