The Black Series 3 3/4" #21 Luke Skywalker and #22 Yoda

I'm always looking to plug gaps in my collection of 3 3/4" figures. Two figures I've always been without are a Dagobah Luke and Yoda. Fortunately, the latest wave of The Black Series features exactly these with #21 Luke Skywalker and #22 Yoda.

These two figures make a great pair - a special thanks goes to stylie_steve over at the SWNZ Message Boards for hooking me up with them!

Ambush at Corellia Paperback and The Illustrated Star Wars Universe

A couple of weeks ago the Wellington Downtown Community Ministry held their annual bookfair. It's always a great chance to pick up some cheap reads, and hopefully add a couple of items to my collection. This year I lucked out, coming across a copy of Edgar Macbride Allen's Ambush at Corellia and Kevin J. Anderson's Illustrated Star Wars Universe.

The latter is a particularly nice find. Anderson's book is written around a stunning collection of Ralph Macquarrie's concept artwork for the original Star Wars Trilogy. I missed this one when it was first released, and I'd been hoping to come across a copy for some time now!
