    Maybe we should just all post short blogs on the OS wondering where it is, and Pablo will see that we haven't forgotten it. Maybe one of us would at least get some word on it?

    Or would that just be annoying? :p

    Nah that wont be to annoying if you ask me. It would be annoying if we all decided to start emailing Pablo about it. But perhaps one of us could try to email him in the name of all us? Cause I really fear it will be forgotten.

    Bane Malar will be released as a figure. Let's hope they will add the WTS story on his card!

    Ok this is it...I have had it with the lack of updates regarding WTS. It has been 2 months now that we are waiting for the last update. I am going to draft an email to Pablo and ask for some explanations. Who wants in?

    Good luck Xan and I hope you get a speedy reply. Quite frankly, I thought the last round would be out by now. I mean, 4 entries haven't been lying about for over a year and they've shown recently that they can throw together 1 entry pretty fast.

    However, I think this is another case that shows how slow Hyperspace is nowadays. I mean, we're 6 months from the new tv-series and what do fan club members get? Excerpt from material published more than 15 years ago!

    Hey guys -

    I wrote the WTS entries for Yoxgit and the M-HYD hydroponics droid. I too am way curious about what happened with the Bane Malar entry as I put a lot into it...

    I preemptively sent an e-mail to Pablo some weeks ago through Starwars.com, but it was automatically bounced back to me...I also posted "An open letter to Pablo Hidalgo" (nothing ablative, I hope) in my blog on Starwars.com. I hope one of you has more luck.

    Welcome here Caledre :D, and congrats on winning those entries. Me myself won Niai Fieso and can still remember your Yoxgit entry as being quite good.

    Thanks, man!

    I fear Bane Malar has been lost in the avalanche of Force Unleashed and Clone Wars cartoon hype. Haven't heard anything from Pablo since last December...

    It is a sad thing but it sureseems that way. And it isnt just Bane we are waiting for, there are 4 or 5 from the AOTC round too that we dont know the winners off.

    I left a message in his last blog, maybe he reads it...

    I had a dream last night that the remaining winners of WTS were posted. No joke!

    Now we'll have to see if dreams really do come true...:_|

    Congrats, Hedec- the Dusty Duck is ranked #71 in the "100 Greatest Things About Star Wars...Ever!" article in the newest SW Insider! It's the only WTS entry on the list at that (and your user name is mentioned too :D ).

    Is that 100 greatest things about Star Wars, or just the databank? Dunno that I'd count that Sith Fighter as one of the 100 greatest things about Star Wars...

    Nope! :)

    It summarizes the story of the Duck and has the footnote of "Congradulations to Hyperspace member, Hedac Ga! Your fan-created entry- a perk that was only available to Hyperspace members- is the only one of it's kind to make it into the Top 100."

    Well, who's going to update this on the Wook's WTS page as a reprint entry--that's what I want to know :p

    Now if I can just find myself a copy...[face_thinking] [face_praying]

    Actually, now that I've looked at it, it does seem to be a printed version of one of the databank specials: http://www.starwars.com/databank/updates/news20071221.html

    Then it's strange that they don't mention Maso Tirag's shadow trooper entry.

    Anyhoo, congrats once again Hedec [face_peace]

    QFT

    It's gone three months now since WTS ended and judging by how often the Visual Guides get updated, I think it might take another three to four month.

    It's just to accept it. We won't see the last round of WTS anytime soon.
