  1. Thanks so much for the links to Team Ahsoka… and everything else. I look forward to your round-ups every month. :-)

    I couldn’t spot it in the round-up and it may have gone live after you worked on this but Derek Laufman’s got some new Clone Wars prints in his online store (including two Clone Wars packs).

      Ooh yes, thanks for that! I think I’ll add that to the August roundup, since July is super long at this point, haha! Also, Team Ahsoka is one of the first sites I go to grab links, so keep up the awesome work!
