StarCraft: Scavengers # 1 Review

The StarCraft: Scavengers # 1 is now available to download and read via Kindle. There are apps for PC and Mobile.

The physical copy of StarCraft: Scavengers # 1 is now available as well with the Kerrigan Queen of Blades variant cover by TIMOTHY GREENE II (for $5.25).

The StarCraft: Scavengers paperback (collecting all 4-issues) can also be pre-ordered. It will ship on February 19, 2019.

The art and coloring of StarCraft: Scavengers # 1 looks very solid, and appealing. Background coloring resembles watercolor frescos. I am not sure how much the story will tell us in only 4-issues. This first installment barely scratched the surface and left more questions than answers.

Being from Kel-Moria, all they know about the events in Dominion space, these past years, is basically hearsay and vague. Chau Sara and Kerrigan the Queen of Blades are mentioned too briefly. Characters are not thoroughly fleshed out, either. Out of at least 12 crew members, we only know the name of 5.

The Kel-Morian scavengers, crew of the Magpie ship, infiltrate Dominion space to scavenge a derelict protoss ship found on a decaying orbit around a uninhabited planet.

The idea is that if the protoss ship is about to crash through the atmosphere, there would be no evidence left behind of their scavenging.

It doesn’t matter that it is a dangerous and illegal operation, the crew was told by Captain Theban that the risk was worth the reward, and offered double profits.

StarCraft: Scavengers (Kindle) Pre-Orders

The Dark Horse Comics’ StarCraft: Scavengers (Kindle) pre-orders have suddenly changed release date to July 25, 2018 for only $3.99.

Personally, I don’t know if it is a mistake, but when in doubt, if it is there… go ahead and pre-order ASAP. The original StarCraft: Scavengers Kindle page is still there with a February 19, 2019 release date for $9.99.

STARCRAFT: SCAVENGERS
Writer Jody Houser (Mother Panic, Faith) and artist Gabriel Guzmán (Mass Effect, Star Wars) join forces for StarCraft, a new series further exploring the expansive universe of Blizzard’s hit video game.

Seen from the point of view of a young, inexperienced engineer, a group of terran space scavengers hope to pull off the job of their lifetimes, ignoring a recent United Earth Directorate treaty to pillage a derelict protoss ship. The scavengers’ dangerous plan is compounded by the fact that the protoss ship is in a decaying orbit above a backwater planet. If their time doesn’t run out and Dominion police forces don’t bust them, will protoss or zerg factions in the outer rim find and execute them?

Sideshow Collectibles StarCraft II Tychus Sixth Scale Figure

The Sideshow Collectibles StarCraft II Tychus Sixth Scale Figure is now available for pre-order, so make absolute all preparations to reserve a limited copy. It is the most complex piece of work ever done for a Blizzard Licensed Product with a whooping 525 individually engineered components.

The Sideshow Collectibles StarCraft II Tychus Sixth Scale Figure is slated to ship around Q4 2015.

Product Summary

”Hell… it’s about time!”

From Blizzard Entertainment’s best-selling strategy game, StarCraft II, Sideshow Collectibles is proud to introduce the Tychus Sixth Scale Figure.

While not even Jim Raynor can be certain of the truth behind his past, or just where his loyalties lie, one thing is for sure: Tychus Findlay always goes big. Always. Assembled from over 525 individually engineered components, Findlay gears up in Sideshow’s Sixth Scale Terran Space Marine armor with an incredible range of articulation, multiple light-up features, and a colorful array of unique decals that suit him just fine – including snarky quips, tally marks and a pin-up of Kyla Velassi. Known for his big ego and even bigger guns, there’s no job in the whole universe too dangerous for this outlaw when he’s got a couple of flash grenades and a light-up C-14 Impaler Gauss rifle with bayonet attachment and removable clip. A born survivor, Tychus bears his ‘New Folsom Prison blues’ with true grit thanks to two interchangeable portraits: one with a scathing scowl, and one simply enjoying one of the best cigars in the Koprulu sector.
