Black Series Titanium, Part 1

So I've finished with the pictures for the first group of Black Series Titanium vehicles that I bought. I picked up the 4-Pack as well as the First Order Special Forces TIE Fighter, First Order Star Destroyer, Kylo Ren's Command Shuttle, Resistance X-wing and Rey's Speeder (Jakku). Clicking on the name in this post will take you to the page for each item, or you could just go to the bottom of the Titanium Series 3" vehicle page and they are all right there.

Thoughts in general? It's nice to get new Titanium Series vehicles, but I feel that the quality just isn't quite up to the previous standard. Starting with the new stand, it just feels a bit more flimsy and lower quality than I'd like. The metal just feels a little lighter, and any plastic is definitely less dense. That being said, the new vehicles on the whole look nice to me and don't really stand out as out of place in my collection.
Titanium Series Caught Up
Posted on September 14, 2015, 12:59 pm by CloneEmperor
So I've caught up on the Titanium Series. What that means is that I've added all the pictures for any items that I had before this new Black Series relaunch of the Titanium Series and Micro Machines, concluding with the 2012 3-Pack aborted relaunch. I have the last three of those on the way, which leaves me with only about 5 items I still need to get, though I may never find them. With this done, I can now focus on getting pictures up of the new stuff.
Titanium is Back!

Wow, it looks like after a few years the Titanium series has been resurrected. Six years ago Hasbro discontinued the Titanium series, and after a botched attempt to bring them back three years later, I thought they would never see the light of day again. Instead, here we are at the start of the merchandising push Star Wars: The Force Awakens and not only has the Titanium series been brought back, but so has the Micro Machines line. With this in mind I figured I would try and bring my catalog of the Titanium series up to date. Hopefully this will be done in the next couple days.
I'm still here! (I think?...)

I guess this is my semi-irregular post indicating that I am still alive and that I do intend to continue updating this website. There's been a lot happen in the last few months in regards to Star Wars. What with Disney buying Lucasfilm and the new movies coming, there are a lot of changes.

The biggest change as it applies to me is the sacrifice of the Expanded Universe on the alter of Episode VII: The Force Awakens. This will necessitate a change on my books/comics timeline page, though I'm not entirely certain how I'm going to change it, especially since I was already considering changes thanks to the Clone Wars episodes and books messing up that bit of the timeline. No matter, frustrating though it is, I'm not one the few very angry people out there, and there will be change soon.

In the meantime, I have uploaded the covers from the Star Wars Insider from the last two years and brought me up to date on that. Those can be found at the bottom of the Star Wars Insider page, found here.
Japanese Action Fleet
Posted on February 20, 2014, 12:03 am by CloneEmperor
I'm back with something special! In the Miscellaneous Action Fleet section here, I have added a group of five Gacha items from Japan. What is Gacha you may ask? Gacha is a word that represents capsule toys released by Tomy, and in this case it was two series of five toys consisting of previously released figures and small vehicles from the Action Fleet line.

Why then, if they were all previously released, would I bother to collect them? Because they were released on the cutest little blister packs! Seriously. I am an opener, I open everything and yet I refuse to open these because the packaging is so cute. Sadly, all I have is the first series because the second series has proven rather difficult to track down, but one day they shall all be mine, yes indeed.

Series 1 consisted of five packages; a Battle Droid on its STAP, Darth Maul and his Sith Speeder, one Destroyer Droid, Jar Jar Binks with Qui-Gon Jinn, and Obi-Wan Kenobi with TC-14. They are glorious, and they can be viewed right here.
And More Stories!

I have added a few more novel synopses this morning. Found in the Old Republic section are "The Old Republic: Deceived", "The Old Republic: Annihilation" and the first part of "Darth Bane: Rule of Two". And since I started with Bane, I figured I'd finish him off, so the second part of "Darth Bane: Rule of Two" and "Darth Bane: Dynasty Of Evil" can be found early in the Rise of the Empire Era. In addition, I discovered that some more of my synopses were badly lacking in detail, so I updated "Shadows and Light", "Unseen, Unheard", "Bane of the Sith", "Darth Bane: Path Of Destruction" and "Jedi vs. Sith" in the Old Republic Era. Enjoy!
More Stories!
Posted on September 20, 2013, 1:02 pm by CloneEmperor
So ... lots of stories added to the Timeline. First off, I added all the rest of the Knights Of the Old Republic stories found in issues 19-50, as well as re-writing where necessary the previous issues as well. I also added the short story "The Last Battle of Colonel Jace Malcom". Moving on to the Rise Of the Empire era, I added the comic stories "Boba Fett Is Dead", "Agent of the Empire: Iron Eclipse", "Agent of the Empire: Hard Targets", "Dark Times: Out Of the Wilderness" and the short story "The Tenebrous Way". In addition, I also added "Crimson Empire III: Empire Lost" to the New Republic section and the Dark Forces trilogy of books to their various sections.

I've also written a large number of more reviews and am looking to upload them sometime soon, once I have determined where they all fit.
I'm trying, I really am

I am finding myself getting caught in the rut that I've been in for years. I get so caught up on creating my content for updates that I never actually get around to updating, leaving me with folders full of files gathering dust, so to speak.

Tonight I've added a couple of stories to the Old Republic section that I'm surprised I hadn't added already, but you know what they say, better late than never! My new additions are both from the Tales of the Jedi series, "Dark Lords Of the Sith" and "Redemption", both found most recently in the Tales Of the Jedi Omnibus, Volume 2.While looking over the other stories in those omnibuses, I realized that I didn't have actual synopses for most of the other Tales Of the Jedi stories, so I went ahead and rewrote those for all the stories in Omnibus Volume 1 and "The Sith War" in Omnibus Volume 2. In addition, I recently finished off the Fate Of the Jedi series and wrote synopses for "Fate Of the Jedi: Ascension" and "Fate Of the Jedi: Apocalypse" which unfortunately turned out to be rather long. In my defense, there were a lot of things that happened in those stories, and I wanted to include most of it.

My next project is to go through the rest of the Old Republic section and finish off the stories I have there, so I can move into another Era soon. I also have some non-book related updates coming in the next few days (if I remember).
Old Republic-aganza

So tonight's major update includes a number of stories from the Old Republic Era.

After finally having time to get through all of the "Lost Tribe Of the Sith" ebooks recently, I have uploaded synopses of those stories. I have also uploaded synopses for the "Knights of the Old Republic: War" story, the "Lost Tribe Of the Sith: Spiral" story, the "Knight Errant: Escape" story and "Fate Of the Jedi: Conviction"
Dawn Of the Jedi
Posted on July 23, 2013, 12:00 am by CloneEmperor
Just a quick addition tonight, I figured it would be relatively easy to add synopses for all the current stories in the new "Before the Republic" Era.

So head on over to that category on the Literature page to read all about all of the Dawn of the Jedi comics, including the short story "Eruption" and the novel "Into the Void".
