Star Wars Episode IV “A New Hope”

Well, what can I say. I saw Star Wars when it first came out in the theaters in 1977. I actually was one of the few people who was aware of this film coming out. I used to read Starlog and magazines like that as all good little nerds do. I also used to go down to NYC with my mom every once in a while and we found several B&W promo photos for sale on the street, no doubt bootleg. Continue reading Star Wars Episode IV “A New Hope”

This along with a hefty magazine section I think could provide a cool service for the scene. Continue reading TheMetalScene.com
