Well the time has come to say farewell...

I want to thank all who have made it a pleasure to do the site, staff, visitors and fellow webmasters. It has been great fun over the last 6 years... but all good things must come to an end.

Thankfully this good thing doesn't have too! Head over to the all new and far better TPU right now!

Area Report - Revenge of the Sith Cereal Find
Reported By - Obi-Wan Saturday, March 26th 2005 - 06:55:50 AM
I have found my second Revenge of the Sith foodstuffs yesterday in Asda in Farnborough.

Coco Pops have an on packet competition to win a Christopher Lee signed Count Dooku Hasbro electronic lightsaber, and runner up prizes of the new Obi-Wan and Anakin/Vader Hasbro elctronic lightsabers, and Ricicles have an in packet glow in the dark lightsaber maze (six to find in total: Obi-Wan, Anakin, Darth Vader, Mace, Yoda and Luke Skywalker).

Having found the Chuba Chubb lollipops, liquid candy lightsabers and now the cereals, I think people should keep a close eye on their supermarket shelves.

New Argos ROTS Stock Arriving
Reported By - Pete [Editor] Tuesday, March 22nd 2005 - 10:31:35 PM
The friendly (Star Wars fan) manager of my local Argos stopped me when I was instore yesterday and told me that new ROTS stock has arrived.

As yet it is limited, but new stuff is arriving all the time, he told me. So far they have just Yoda and Darth Vader action figures, and the AT-RT vehicle.

He brought out the AT-RT vehicle to show me. It's an impressive little vehicle, but the figure is a disappointing mould and looks odd being green and not white as his other clone brothers.

These new items are not yet available for sale, unless you want to pay £9999.99, a price used for new stock not yet for sale...

Star Wars: Obsession #4 (of 5)

Still convinced that Dark Jedi Asajj Ventress is alive, Obi-Wan Kenobi leads Anakin Skywalker and Senator Bail Organa to the grisly graveyard world of Boz Pity. They're hopelessly out-numbered, but Obi-Wan's obsession has made him blind to the danger.

Fortunately, help is on the way. Rig for action as Mace Windu leads a battalion of Jedi and an army of clone troopers to the rescue! All of your favorite Jedi guest star, as well as villains Count Dooku and General Grievous. Plus, the return of ARC Trooper Alpha!

Star Wars: Republic #74

This is it kids. This story arc leads directly into Revenge of the Sith. Hold on to your hats.

The Outer Rim Sieges have begun, and Jedi Master Oppo Rancisis leads the Republic forces in a desperate drive against a new and major Separatist threat on the planet Saleucami. Aayla Secura and her army must punch through the Separatist fleet to bring re-enforcements and much needed supplies. On the surface of the planet-and beneath it-battles rage, and betrayal simmers! The Dark Jedi Sora Bulq has allies ... and one may be among the Jedi themselves!


More Starfighter Colours...
Reported By - Jon Daniels [Assistant Editor] Tuesday, March 22nd 2005 - 08:24:50 AM
So far we've seen Anakin's Yellow Jedi Starfighter and also some pictures (from Lego) as Obi's Red Starfighter...

Epsiode 23 of Clone Wars reveals that Mace pilots, you've guessed it, a purple Starfighter while Saesee Tiin pilots a green Starfighter!!!

Great, more to collect...?
