Darn it! I want to be through with toy collecting by the time I'm over 100 years old.
Those motorized shopping scooters can't keep up with the power-walkers who turn around and scalp stuff on eBay.
Plus, if by then they finally make the Tonnika Sisters action figures, I may wet my Depens.
I'm very disappointed by Legacy being brought to an end and posted on Dark Horse's message boards my request to keep it alive. I first learned of this from Jan Duursema herself.
Rest assured, she'll very likely still be contracted with Dark Horse to draw Star Wars. However, her next project might have nothing to do with Cade Skywalker.
I'd like that storyline to continue myself, as much as I'd also like to see her draw for Star Wars: Invasion.
Honestly, I'd much prefer Duursema drawing something SW that doesn't involve Legacy. I dig her artwork. Legacy itself, not so much.

I'm not really a fan of Legacy....I was a big fan of all those Clone Wars(not the cartoon) era comics, so I'd like to see Dark Horse do something like that....Reviving SW Tales would be awesome too, but not holding my breath.
When I get around to it (or a Round Tuit :D ), I'll put the upcoming books through about October. The fiction is so-so, and some BAD ones (i.e. a SEQUEL to the worst SW EU novel, The Force Upchucked:whip: ), but there are some great source ones (a Making of ESB and another I fail to recall now, maybe the SW:By the Year one).
It's now Round Tuit time, apparently.

I got to Clone Wars Gambit: Siege, which was a sequel to CWG: Stealth. Aside from the "flux capacitor" line and far too much healing by non-healer Jedi, it was a good read. Still making me wonder if the fate of Ahsoka will ever be shown in cartoon or book form.
Also picked up the CW: Encyclopedia, which looks nice, as was relatively inexpensive.
I picked up Secret Missions #2 and the CW Illustrated Character Guide last weekend. Used the Borders coupons. :thumbsup:
The character guide is cool. A lot of great pix of minor characters you might've forgotten or just glimpsed in the series.
I just learned that Ackmena Maude Zvornak is still alive and active during the Fate of the Jedi series.
This seems like a problem to me. Why? She should be dead.
I'm not at all saying it's tasteless to include her because the actress who protrayed her passed away recently. I'm basing this on evidence from the films and Holiday Special.
The Star Wars Holiday Special takes place shortly after ANH, in the 3-year gap between ANH and ROTJ. Ackmena in the Holiday Special is visibly older than Mon Mothma appears to be in ROTJ, at least a year (maybe as many as three years) later.
Mon Mothma died of old age shortly before the Yuuzhan Vong invasion.
So how is Ackmena in good enough shape to take an active role in anything many years later? It simply doesn't make sense, since they're both known to be human.
