Ten Years of Star Was Guide

News
  TEN YEARS AGO TODAY...

It all started with an after-Christmas shopping trip to the mall to search for sale and clearance items. The first edition of our Star Wars Super Collector's Wish Book had just been released, Episode III was highly anticipated, and the community was in need of a non toy-focused collecting news source. (That's us.)

It has been a wild ten years! Star Wars is back in theaters in 3D, with more movies promised by Disney. The book has seven editions out now; the collecting database is a graphical collection tracker used by more than a thousand people around the world... The website has made a difference in the community.

Thank you to all of the wonderful people who stop by and read our pages faithfully. (In October we crossed the 5 million hit mark!) We are looking forward to another ten (or more!) years ahead! And if you just happened to stumble across our site on a Star Wars web surfing adventure, please bookmark us and check back in often. We'll be here providing news and information just for you.

Empire Strikes Back 3D Widevision Checklist 2010

News
  2010 ESB Widevision Checklist Now Online!

Your search ends here. In May of 2010 Topps released a brand new 3Di widevision set of cards to celebrate the 30th anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back - or ESB as it's known by us old school fans.

Many may recall in the 1990's there was a 3Di set of card released for Star Wars A New Hope (ANH) with promo cards for Empire Strikes back and Return of the Jedi (ROTJ) which were never produced. After almost ten years of waiting, the wishes and letters have paid off. The Widevision (WV) ESB 3Di card set includes 48 base cards, plus artist sketch cards, and as a disappointment to completionist collectors, a special card available exclusively to distributors of the set.

Star Wars Collecting Forums Are Open!

News

Presenting: The Star Wars Collectors Collaborative Forums

The collaborative forums are to build a community of cooperation not always attainable to collectors who wander into sites dominated by power hitting uber collectors who are tired of answering the same questions every year, even if asked by new users.

The design of The Collaborative is also to allow any user to break news and information to the collecting community without the necessity of formally proposing articles and waiting for posting approval. The internet has freed news to be posted 24 hours a day and the forum has granted that same power to you.

New Format - New challenges

NewsDecember 26th of 2002 we installed a Geeklog CME script and wrote the very first Collection Diary entry. Six and a half years later we moved over to a new platform: glFusion. That's six and a half years of customizations walked away from in a day. The formatting for the site is going to change every couple of hours for several weeks as we rewrite formatting code. Please enjoy the articles as always (we didn't lose any) and exercise patience as we find our way through the construction.

You may also notice that FORUMS and a MEDIA GALLERY are in the works. All good things come to those who wait, and we've been waiting a very long time.

StarWarsGuide Gets An Upgrade And A Face Lift!

News
December 26, 2002

12/26/2002 at 4:00pm was our first article post. That was a very long time ago ... especially in terms of technology. Episode II had just released... action figures were in the first "Saga" style packaging... and the script we used here was on version 1.2

We've upgraded the script to a new stable version (released October 2008 - it's at least modern). We're starting our design over with a modified template. Our old one lacked some of the newest features. At the time of this writing we're at 95% operational and were just too excited to keep the new site completely under wraps.

As we bring new features online and tweak the look, we sincerely hope you enjoy the transformation.

Seeking Photo Editors

News
  They're both the same photo...

... but the one on the right is ready to print.

The sixth edition of the Star Wars Super Collector's Wish Book is now in pre-production. All the photography is being shot / reshot using a new digital camera. (So far I've upgraded cameras four times in five editions!) With a little over 60 days to edit 8,000 photographs, I'm looking for some dedicated volunteers to show off their skills and make their mark forever on the Star Wars collecting community.
