    Feedback is appreciated :) I will keep events listed in each newsletter until they?ve passed their end date, so that people who might?ve missed the previous newsletters won?t feel left out :) Many of the items here in this issue are brought to you by [link=http://www.rebelscum.com]RebelScum.com[/link] ? many thanks to our partner site for all of the GREAT goodies :D

    The newsletter will be bi-tri-weekly (unless there?s nothing new to report!)

    Dates: October 27, 2005 ? April 30th 2006

    Developed by the Museum in collaboration with Lucasfilm Ltd., Star Wars: Where Science Meets Imagination puts a 21st century spin on the saga's futuristic devices by exploring similar technologies in development today. For anyone who's ever wondered, the exhibition addresses the question: Will we have anything like droids or landspeeders someday? Using Star Wars as a springboard--as a shared image of what the future might look like--the exhibition encourages visitors to participate in the imaginative engineering processes that yield technological advancements. As they design, test, and build prototypes, visitors immerse themselves not only in the Star Wars universe, but also in the current scientific knowledge that underpins technologies--and could lead

    I didn't even know we had a newsletter here. Coolness!

    I hope I can afford to go to the SW Where Science meets Imagination tour when it goes to Ohio, that's as close as I can get from Michigan. There is a book out concerning this whole exhibit which I might go ahead and pick up this weekend.

    I am drooling over the new Titanium line for January.

    Good issue as usual, PLJ! I enjoyed the interview with JED1 since I met him and his wife at a Memorabilia show in Birmingham, and again when he, AmberStarbright, and I had a day out in London.

    The only thing I can think of to add is that folks who are Christmas shopping for collectors might want to check out our Online Resource thread stickied at the top for reliable sites for online ordering.

    Again a good one, PLJ! I just love the interviews with out fellow collectors. And I was surprised to see the prequel TPBs were bundled in a slipcase. I realized I have a lot of SW comics and TPBs, yet not one of the prequel issues! Now's a great chance for me to catch up on those :D!

    Another outstanding newsletter!
    I'm kicking myself for not getting Sideshow Luke in time! I hope the waiting list will help me out.

    I don't know if it has been mentioned earlier but I saw that Gentle Giant has pictures up of their Series 6 Bust Ups (avail. in May '06).
    Looks like they are going to do a Cantina inspired grouping with Obi Wan, Han, Greedo, Ponda Baba, Bith and Snaggletooth.

    Great updates as usual Erika, I think this is the best newsletter yet, for some reason :p

    Not sure about being referred to as a Diva though, I mean I only dress up as Leia in my mind! [face_laugh]
