Hyperdine Labs, known for making lighsabers, created a one off Death Star Trench Run cornhole game.
Toronto’s Star Wars gaming Store Champs season kicks off with the X-Wing SC at 401 Games on June 4th, 2017. Some of the local players were gracious enough to offer their expertise in commentating the top cut matches – here’s the semifinal.
I had no idea these movies existed. They are so glorious and full cheese! We need t-shirts of these disasters. Continue reading Weirdest Star Wars Ripoffs
I stumbled upon some inspiring Star Wars dioramas made with toys. Being more of a “painted miniatures guy,” I have never been into collecting toys as an adult. However, I was struck at how beautiful Stephen’s dioramas were. It really goes to show that talent, when applied, will surpass any medium. Continue reading Stephen Hayford’s Dioramas
I hope you are enjoying your Monday.
If not, this will cheer you up. Continue reading Hamsters & Sand
Tristan’s rebel swarm had what it took to make it to the finals, but Joe brought a surprise – Horton Salm! Not quite a match you’d expect in any other final but that’s the beauty of the PTL Open format! One of these players walks away the first PTL Open 2017 Champion!
We continue the playoff action with two talented players flying unorthodox lists in this semifinal match of the 2017 PTL Open.
At the end of April, Toronto hosted the PTL Open, a 2-day fan-run X-Wing convention that featured a special format main event and many casual side events. For the main event, players were required to build 3 separate lists and at the start of each match, secretly choose which of the 3 lists they would play that round. You can find all of the Swiss round matches at our youtube channel ‘vttvlive’, but we’ve begun to upload the playoff matches! This format has encouraged some very offbeat lists and while the skill level of players at this event is high, the matches you’ll see are those you wouldn’t normally expect from a ‘regular’ x-wing competition.
On Tested there are a lot of great Star Wars geek videos, like how to build a lightsaber or a replica of Han Solo’s blaster.
I was completely blown away by Adam Savage’s Chewbacca costume and working C-P30 backpack. It’s simply amazing. If you haven’t seen it yet, take a look.
So recently there was an X-Wing convention in Toronto called the PTL Open. It was attended by 80+ players and it featured a 2-day main event tournament as well as many side events, including the Furball free-for-all alternate dogfight format. It was such a fun time, we recorded the match and this may be the first such recorded game on the internet! The main event will be going up soon as well but we thought we would start with something fun!
