April 17th, 2015 by Marc Comments


Ok so Star Wars Celebration rolls on and the news keeps coming.

Thanks to the guys at GeekTyrant  we have some very cool looks at Kylo Ren and his saber hilt, plus the Falcon, new X-wings and costumes, all of which are lovely.

Oh and we gleamed a few things too. The Empire is no long called The Empire but is now The First Order and the Rebellion is now the Resistance. Not much, but very cool.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
