    Okay...that's when you know you're a fan I guess, when you plan to go buy something before you even know what it is.............

    It looks like it's a bunch of behind the scenes info and stuff like that. I haven't opened it yet, but it looks really cool. :)

    I've had my "Behind The Magic" CDRom for about a year now...it's pretty awesome...worth the 4.99 in my book.

    I think it's awesome. And, you got it, Tim. And a pirated copy could always be obtained if a certain someone we know wants one for free, Rhonda. ;)

    Oh well I went and looked, even in the 4.99 section and it wasn't there :( The sales assistant said there was something SW there for 4.99, but I probably just missed it...maybe I can get it from Barnes and Noble. Is it a game or just an multimedia type thing?

    And it has the lost scenes from ANH. You know, the Luke/Biggs scene that we all know so well from the old SW storybook, as well as the Toshi Station scene with his garage friends. That, and an extended cantina scene, make it well worth the money.

    Huzzah, Biggs is da man. Dead man, but still the man.

    You know, guys...earlier we were discussing Mark Hamill. I was just reading this morning about celebrity car crashes and I learned something new. Apparently in December 1976 shortly after the filming of ANH, Mark had a wreck and went through the windshield of his Corvette (ironic, huh) and suffered facial injuries. In ESB, he had scars on his face and the scene where the Wampa attacks Luke was supposed to explain his face injuries. The injuries were apparently so bad that he had to have most of his face reconstructed. I guess that explains the bad choices in film scripts...a severe blow to the head.

    lol, yeah I heard about that a couple months ago. he does look a lot different from ANH to ESB, but I always thought it was ageing. I think Marks problem is he is one of those 'acting is an art' types. He feels the performance is the important thing not the story, if the performance is good then the story will be good. Thats just my guess though.

    Good morning gang! I picked up the new issue of SW Insider (#62) this morning, and it's the best one I've seen in a long, long time. Lots of cool stuff in this one. The blue Twi'lek jedi Aayla Secura is on the cover. It's definitely a "must-buy"!

    Y'all are just now hearing about the Mark Hamill crash thing? I thought that was ancient news. Didn't they pretty much have to put the man's face back on? The damage is not as apparent in ESB as it is in ROTJ. I wonder if he had to endure several stages of surgery, or if they just had a better makeup artist for ESB?

    Hmmm, I wonder if we can e-mail Mark and find out?!?!?! That would be really cool!!

    Man, Mace Windu is one bad mother. Reading that article about lightsaber fighting, he is one of the few that has mastered form VII. Man, I wonder how he gets taken out, cause that form is almost unstoppable!!!!

    Quick question. In the latest issue of Insider does it have the final chapter in the short story Emmisary to the Void? They put it in three of the Star Wars Gamer mags but sense they canceled Gamer they moved and truly messed me up.
