    In random news, I picked up the Marvel Comics' Return of the Jedi 4-issue mini-series circa 1983 in A- condition (packed in bags, no creases, but small tears in the pages from being turned, as '80's newsprint does) from Trade Me last week.

    $15! What a bargain!

    Nice nostalgic read, especially the advertisments for the old Atari 2600 Return of the Jedi game, amusing.

    I see you're selling a bit of stuff on there, Chans!

    Here are a few things I've seen recently in my wanderings:

    Borders - a new Star Wars UK magazine and they also had stack of books on their bargain table (in the basement) about George Lucas. Didn't look very interesting, though ... just basically descriptions of the various movies he's directed etc. They also had the re-released THX dvd on display in the DVD section.

    The Calendar Club has appeared again in malls ... I visted the one at Manukau Westfield and they had two Star Wars items - the 2005 calendar from the ink group, and also a desktop Star Wars daily trivia one.

    That SW Daily calendar has 12 photos from EP3 - including one of Keisha as the Naboo Queen. The pictures are nothing new though.

    I think they were $20-ish. Can't remember exactly, but around that price range.

    oh, and Solo77 ... I bought a Peter Griffin action figure from "Heroes For Sale" on K Rd. the other day.
