Greetings to all of you scruffy-looking nerf herders out there! I must apologize for not having a WEEK IN REVIEW last week. I was really bored and decided to have my wisdom teeth removed to break up the monotony of work, Star Wars, and Cheetos. Big mistake.  Well, lesson learned. Now that I am able to chew again without wincing, it’s time to hit the keyboard and see what comes out. Welcome to YODASNEWS.COM – home of the best floating sabbac game this side of Nal Hutta! Here is your week in review…

  • One can’t swing a dead mynock without hitting a rumor, spoiler or leak regarding the upcoming RISE OF SKYWALKER. Of course, these bits of information are nothing but rumors, and will remain rumors until the movie is viewed. Whether to read or not to totally up to the individual, but the constant question is are any of these leaks legit?

  • Triple Force Friday is now less than two weeks away. Much like the ROS leaks, there are plenty of ideas and, more recently, visual proof of what is now expected to hit the shelves in the toy department of your favorite store. Focusing on THE RISE OF SKYWALKER, THE MANDALORIAN, and STAR WARS JEDI: FALLEN ORDER by Electronic Arts, Triple Force Friday has the potential to fan the fires of even the most cynical collector. Hasbro really has a chance to shine here. I hope they take full advantage of the opportunity.

  • I remember when Star Wars hit it big in the 1970’s, I was obsessed with the action figures and the ships. However, the toy that I really wanted and never got? The white SSP van with the image of the heroes on the side. The Super Sonic Power racers were toy vehicles that had a ripcord that was inserted and then pulled out quickly. This made the wheels move. The car, van or motorcycle would then race across the kitchen floor and crash into your sister’s Holly Hobbie tea party. I give you all of this background information because it was the first thing I thought of when I saw this…

Look at that sweet ride! Only $9,800.00 and you can drive that thing right down the main drag of Mos Eisley. Granted, vans like that have lost a little of their appeal as the years rolled on. Nowadays, they might be viewed as a bit more creepy than they were back then. Fair enough. All I know is that I can’t fit that graphic of a X-Wing on the side of my car and the floor of my Nissan is covered with fast food wrappers and not the Millennium Falcon.

Well, that’s all I have for you this week. If you have anything you would like to share with me or if you just want to tell me that you just purchased that van, drop me a line at Traviscrafts@gmail.com. Until next week- be sure to take care of your teeth and don’t blow your motivator.
