Is anyone collecting the weekly published Star Wars Fact Files? Thanks to a good friend in Ireland images/icons/smile.gif (apparently they are exclusive to the UK) I have the cool binder/folder and all of the fact files published so far. They are really interesting and cool. Thanks Fungi! images/icons/smile.gif

No, I'm collecting them, but I agree that they look really nice. I'm surprised someone hasn't jumped on doing these for the US market. I would think that it would be a pretty good demand for a product like this here in the States.

The Star Wars Fact Files are avaliable here in Australia also and I have been following them with interest. So far I have up to issue 11(Yoda on the front page) which was just released.
It started here in South Australia as a trial, so the releases have slowed from weekly to monthly while the rest of Australia catches up.
All up its a nice set(the binder and dividers set it off well) which blends canon and EU details from all sorts of sources. I particularly liked the Garindan character profile that was in the lastest issue....who would have thought they could get 4 pages(2 front and back) out of a character like that. Very nice images/icons/smile.gif

They're available to the U.S. as well... I thought about getting them as a customs resource, and general guide, but I've been told they're nothing that hasn't been published before.

I still may get them just to see what's up with them. Depends what shipping to here is.

Definitly not a lot of info in there that has not been in other sources...but it's just nice to have it all in one spot IMO. I am looking forward to when they are able to incorporate info from AotC and E3. images/icons/smile.gif

Wondering....

Where can I get the Fact Files? I've been reading about them, and I want to get them. I haven't seen them anywhere. Are they in stores in magazine sections? Can you get them through the fan club? How do you get them?

Thanks for any response!

If you go to my page (http://www.twinsuntimes.com/toyforce/factfiles.htm) and click on the banner at the top, it will take you to the official site in the UK and you can order the fact files from them. You'll just have to pay postage on the "freebies" if you're in the US.

Does anyone know the total cost for the subscription in US dollars? I couldn't find that on their site.

The Fact Files just started publication in the Netherlands 3 weeks ago. Looks like a nice package. They're planning to incorporate Ep. II info around issue 20 or so. Can't wait.

For those in the US that are collecting the Fact Files, what are the most recent issues you have received? In the UK? Australia? About two weeks ago I got issues 13 and 14 (mine always arrive in pairs, but I heard some people get them in 4s, or 10s?), and havent received any more lately, and was just wondering what was available and if I should expect my new issues.

The last issue I got was no.2 w/the folder,I sent the form away and havent recieved anything yet so either they are going to send 4 at a time or its all the freebies that are comming with it that is slowing it down images/icons/frown.gif arggghhh

Here in South Australia, I am expecting issue 13 to hit the shelves in the next week or so.

I'm in the UK and the last one I got was issue 16 with Rune Haako on the cover. I'm kinda mystified with Jeremy's story on the front page about 13 only just coming in, unless mine's been printed with the wrong number.
