Mos Eisley News Brief: This Vos is Boss!
I'll have to Corona YOU!There is no doubt one of the only highlights of Season 3 in the Clone Wars has been the appearance of Jedi Master Quinlan Vos.

For more check out the latest sneak preview that was revealed days ago via his Facebook page.

"Chicago, Fox Valley correspondent checking in. Any local Troopers up for a showing of the original Star Wars Episode IV on the big screen? Or so it's being advertised, I don't know how accurate that is. Well, if your in Chicago, the western suburbs to be exact, it's playing at the Arcada Theater in St. Charles, IL on Wednesday at 3PM and 7PM. Admission is $5, - I hoping some 501st show up, it would be awesome to see some costumed fans there. I'm taking my boys age 9, 7 and 3 - since they've never seen it on a screen bigger than our TV."

Sandtrooper Uncle George Reports:
"Hello Troops, I was out yesterday and hit a few Targets in the St. Paul, MN area. The Vintage multi-packs are down to $24.99. That's not so bad for 9 rehashed figures. Also, the Target Hoth sets are down to $27.99. I wanted to snatch an AT-ST but they were gone. The only one available was the Defence of Hoth set. Got the TIE Bomber from Walmart, thank God I didn't rip open the box. No figure and not even a decent paint job for $38.88. So back to the store it went! I finally got the Xanadu, very pleased with it. Happy Hunting and United We Find!"

Sandwatch Guides: UQS Obi-Wan Kenobi
As the line begins to come to a close!We update our Sandwatch Guides with one of the latest and quite possibly last Ultimate Quarter Scale figures from Diamond Select Toys. The second Obi-Wan Kenobi includes a lightsaber with removable blade, a set of binoculars and extra hands to help make it one of the greatest 1/4 scale figures ever. However the line seems to have very little fan support and we are hearing Han Solo from A New Hope might be the very last you see in stores. The Grand Moff Tarkin, Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker (ANH) have been canceled, but we are awaiting clarification from Diamond Select on that. For now, check out the new Obi-Wan Kenobi and see if you are adding this one to your collection. Thanks again to Boba Binks for making Sandwatch Updates his specialty!

Mos Eisley News Brief: 13 Star Wars Legends, One Helmet
Get in on this one!After raising $50,150 for Make-A-Wish through the sale of more than 50 artistically-customized Stormtrooper helmets at Star Wars Celebration V in Orlando last August, the 501st Legion has one more exciting offering up its armored sleeve. As with the previous helmets designed for the 501st TK Project, the "EFX Signature Helmet" will be auctioned for charity, with funds going to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, one of the Legion's favorite partners. This particular helmet took much longer to produce due to the logistics of tracking down and obtaining autographs from 13 Star Wars legends including George Lucas, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Frank Oz, Billy Dee Williams, James Earl Jones, John Williams and even the late Irvin Kershner (who died last month). Fans and potential bidders can visit this link to see photos of this one-of-a-kind collectible helmet as well as all 13 autographs emblazoned upon it. Dates and times of the auction to be posted as soon as they are available. Special thanks to eFX Collectibles for donating the helmet and coordinating the autographs.

Sandtrooper Old Jedi Reports:
"I stopped in at my local Barnes & Nobles after getting a tip from a friend and this is what I found: Complete Star Wars Cookbook $26.99, Large wall clock $14.95, CV Playing deck of cards in the tin $9.95, 8X11 tin poster replicas from the original Trilogy $9.95, and lots of bookmarks and lego pens. I won't even start to list the books, novels and comics. In case any of you were looking for a good excuse to sidetrack from a toy run! United We Find."

Dewback Preview: We would be Honored…
With December upon us, our Dewback Patrol menu is seeing the last of the 2010 mission reports, and what a year it has been. Since last February we have embarked a journey that has taken us all over this great nation of ours. The ten-year anniversary tour is going to make one last stop, and we have put together a prize package that is nearing dangerously close to one thousand dollars! With the help from our sponsors and affiliates, we have prepared what is possibly our best gathering of “birthday gifts” for the last stop.
