This George Lucas, I mean Jorg Sacul, action figure is one of the few I keep on the card, this was a Celebration II exclusive figure, have a read at the spiel on the back, cheesy but cool all the same.

Finally parted with the cash to get the Jabba the Hutt figure, complete with Salacious Crumb and Oola the dancing girl. I took the opportunity to go back and re-shoot some of my older figures now that I have Jabba and enlisted my girlfriend Shannen to take the actual photographs while I did the composition.

It's been out for a few days now hence no blog posts as I've been busy watching away, if you're still on the fence about picking this up don't be as the films look incredible on blu-ray.

This is the oldest copy of the original trilogy in my collection and it's also the last time the original unaltered films were released on VHS and while I make no secret that I prefer to watch the special editions they are still nice have on my shelf.

Ysanne Isard, during the time of the Emperor she was Director of Imperial Intelligence, but after the fall of Palpatine she managed to take charge of the remaining Imperial Forces.
Isard stands out from other Imperial Officers thanks to her all red uniform and her odd eye colours as seen above. Isard was the main antagonist in the Rogue Squadron X-wing novels and comic books written by Michael Stackpole.

Finally back and able to post again, keep an eye here for several new posts in the coming days but for now enjoy my latest video attempt, similar to last years time-lapse this shows the setup of my action figures in my new apartment however rather than simply speeding up the video footage as last year, a new photograph was taken every time an action figure was added to the display then I strung them all together in this video with five photographs each second.
