    Yeah, that's what annoys me. Same with the UK Fan Club. Why not just allow us to subscribe to the US Fanclub, which includes the Insider if they can't be bothered to do original material for the UK?

    I much prefer Insider as it comes printed on nicer quality paper and always seems to have more in it than the UK mag. I sometimes get Insider when I can - Borders is normally a good place to pick it up.

    You can subscribe to Insider. Not sure about the US Fanclub. I don't really have any preference for either Insider or the SW mag.

    Bring back SW Galaxy magazine, or SW gamer!

    Possibly the greatest SW mags ever produced!

    Good news folks! The greatest SW fanzine ever :p - Delta Source - will be available from tomorrow. For those of you coming to the Memorabilia meet-up next weekend, I shall hold onto them until then.

    Hi

    Thanks for that TP! I will try (again!) to book the train and event tickets tommorrow.

    I got my copy of the UK mag, complete with Lego Tie fighter. It appears as though Rogue Squadron missed some, every copy in WH Smiths had one on the cover!

    Hi

    I would love to take part....however I am spending far too much time online and not enougth time studying.

    I know that it is a poor excuse, but I need to get this exam done. Then I will have more time on my hands for DS articles and internet stuff.

    Anyway, we are DS readers. To paraphrase Yoda; "Trivial Pursuit does not make one great".

    In other news:

    I not only have the latest UK mag, but also the latest copy of the excellent Wired magazine. I have also got all the tickets I need for next weekend.

    Come on Paul, I am sure a little bit more time on-line won't hurt! It won't take up much time anyway as I am happy to be captain and therefore posting our replies etc.

    Anyone else?

    We're having our third meet on Saturday, which means then we can apply for official status???? :)

    There will be myself, Charis and Voren meeting at Memorabilia in Birmingham, along with some Delta Source & Moons of Yavin ppl. We'll get photos to prove we were there :p

    Anyone else who would like to join us, is welcome to do so.

    Yeah, I'll have the pics online as soon as I get through the door and rush the page together. I'm lazy, that's why all the photo pages look alike ;)

    Mark, I finally remembered to book my tickets for the NEC.

    The pics of the stormtroopers are cool. What is it about stormtroopers though that make them look so cool? I've been trying to figure this out.
