Below is an article from Mark Dermul's website about the most recent trip to Tatooine that he and seventeen others took and a new effort to save the Lars Homestead from being completely destroyed by the harsh elements of the desert in Tunisia.
The Pioneers were able to see with their own eyes that the Lars Homestead - lovingly dubbed the Igloo - has suffered tremendously from the climate in Tunisia.
Soon this iconic movie location will perish and thus be lost to Star Wars fans forever. We cannot allow that to happen.
Hence several Pioneers joined forces to start a Facebook group called 'Save the Lars Homestead' with only one goal : the full restoration of the Lars Homestead!
The plan is to go back, fully armed with the needed tools and plaster, with a small group of Pioneers for a full week sometime in 2011 or 2012 - depending on how fast we can get the funds together to make this happen.
That's where you come in! We need your support! There are several ways you can support this cause. Every bit helps, so don't hesitate and help us save the Lars Homestead.
Buy the book and help to save the Lars Homestead! When purchasing a copy of the Tatooine Reunion book, we'll automatically add a $5 Jawa donation to the Lars Homestead Fund in your name.
Rebelscum Breast Cancer Awareness Charity Patch Posted By Philip on November 25, 2014: Thanks to everybody that ordered patches. I sent a check for $1,600.00 to the National Breast Cancer Foundation on Monday. While it's not as much as I hoped for, it's still very much appreciated. They will remain for sale in the store for anybody that still wishes to purchase them. Details after the jump.
