EchoBaseNews.com has been “Keeping Star Wars Cool Since 2008.” Originally known as Echo Base Forums, the site was started by David Delgado primarily as a place to discuss Star Wars collecting. In the years since, it is quickly growing into one of the ultimate destinations for complete Star Wars news, including the latest collecting news and movie news, thorough product reviews, live event coverage, exclusive interviews, and much much more!

To meet the demands of an increasing number of followers, a highly qualified and passionate staff has been brought on board. As Echo Base News enters its fifth year on the Internet, we continue to develop new ways to produce and deliver the most exciting Star Wars content on the web!
