Dave Prowse, the man behind the Darth Vader mask, dies aged 85

Actor Dave Prowse, the man behind the Darth Vader mask, dies aged 85

Actor Dave Prowse died following a short illness, his agent Thomas Bowington told the BBC, adding that his death is "a truly and deeply heart-wrenching loss for us and millions of fans all over the world." Prowse was best known for his role as Darth Vader in the original Star Wars trilogy, a character that was voiced by James Earl Jones.

However, his fans are also fondly remembering him as the Green Cross Code Man, a character that taught road safety to children across the UK.


Sigh. Because it's 2020 of course.  This year isn't done spreading its misery around enough.

RIP Mr Prowse.

Hasbro Celebrate the Saga Figure Multipacks

A head's up for 3.75" collectors. With all the other Vintage 3.75" items being released it could be easy to overlook the Celebrate the Saga Multipacks that are now on shelves and online. There are 8 different packs.

If you get a chance, check them out in person before you write them off, the paint apps are the same level of quality as any current photoreal vintage figure, so even if you don't like the packaging, the figures themselves look great. See them in person if you can because all photos I've seen online don't do the actual figures themselves justice.

The all Star Wars store is called the Galactic Gift Shop.  It is the first of its kind in Canada.  As you enter the store a 6' Stormtrooper Stands on Guard protecting the galaxy's most prized possessions .  Yes they have 6" figures and 3.75" but they have a lot of other stuff that is all Disney - all product has to be Disney because that is how their license is structured.  What kind of stuff ? : Purses, wallets, water bottles, back packs, Star Wars hats, PJ's, T-shirts, costumes, Star War toys and a lot and a lot and a lot of Baby Yoda Stuff.  Baby Yoda smacks you in the face when you enter the store and kicks you in butt when you are leaving. They are considering opening one in Scarborough - but for now it is just the one store.  They are going to see how things go until Christmas .  My guess is they will cl
