Rancho Obi-Wan Becomes Non-Profit Inspired By The Force Of Imagination

By Mike — Sunday, December 18, 2011

RANCHO OBI-WAN (ROW), home of the largest privately held Star Wars™ collection in the world, is now a California nonprofit corporation whose purpose is to serve the public through the collection, conservation, exhibition, and interpretation of Star Wars memorabilia.


Fans can now play an active part at Rancho Obi-Wan by getting memberships, taking tours, planning events, and making donations. “The best part of Star Wars for me has been getting to meet and become friends with thousands of enthusiastic fans all over the world,” says collection owner, Steve Sansweet, who is President and Chief Executive Officer of Rancho Obi-Wan, Inc. “The saga has become a multigenerational touchstone of popular culture worldwide, and one role of the museum and its outreach program is to show how that happened.”

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,698

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, December 16, 2011

From 1999, or "thousands of years ago," this Darth Maul had saber-swinging action before it was cool.  Or retro.  Or whatever.  Is it worth picking up, now that it's super-cheap?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,697

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, December 15, 2011

I love Jawa figures.  For a while, Hasbro put out a new one almost every year-- this has since stopped, but it was a nice run to see new takes on the little guys with a companion droid.  This was the last one so far-- how was he?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,696

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, December 14, 2011

Behold, the very first and very angry Barriss Offee!  Portrayed on TV as a younger hero-in-training, the first Hasbro action figure is a stylized, seemingly fully adult woman.  Is this 2003 release worth a look?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,695

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, December 13, 2011

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 1,694

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, December 12, 2011

Arguably the pinnacle of Hasbro's animated action figure design, the Mandalorian Warrior is yet another take on this group with some pretty swell accessories and stellar articulation. It doesn't get much better than this!  Read on!

By Mike — Monday, December 12, 2011

Dark Horse has plenty of Star Wars reading in March, including the final battle between Admiral Palleon's Imperial forces and his adversaries in the final installment of Crimson Empire III - Empire Lost.

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, December 9, 2011
