Lego Journeys: Set 75206 Jedi and Clone Troopers Battle Pack

I got this set for one reason Bariss Offee. She is one of my favorite prequel characters so I couldn't resist is set. I picked it up at my local Leo store for $12.99. That's an incredible price point considering you get FOUR minifigs.

I'm obsessed with these figs! The Clone troopers are also great. I like the two faces on the troopers and the helmet details. Love this set!

Review: Solo The Official Guide by Pablo Hidalgo

The official guides are a treasure trove of information for the new canon films. I find that it takes multiple viewings of the films to catch little Easter eggs on screens and Solo is no different. 

The book is broken up into some of the main story elements of the film: life for Han on Corellia, the meeting of Han and the heist crew and Chewie, The great Heist  and the finale.

I really loved the crisp pictures and the text. It's also great seeing close ups of vehicles and aliens. Also learning all the secrets of Dryden Vos's office.  This book is a visual feast.  It shines a light on the textured world of Solo.

Review: Star Wars Lando Double or Nothing by Barnes, Villanelli, & Mossa

One issue down and I'm already claiming this series as one of my favorite Star Wars comics of the year. Barnes and Villanelli have captured the essence of young Lando and L3-37.
This comic takes place before the fateful meeting between Han and Lando as shown in the Solo movie. Lando is admiring his recent additions to the Falcon and L3 is spending a lot of time holding her mechanical hand to her head at Lando's nonsense. As the pair arrive on the planet Batuv to get some luxury items when the meet Kristiss who seeks to get Lando to take on a mission to Kulgroon. Lando is resistant but fate has other plans, fate and a debt hanging over Lando's head. 
I looooved this book! The art has a stunning realistic feel to it. There is a thread of light that shines through every panel of the book. Such a gorgeous package of art and story. This is going to be a great ride. Don't miss out!
