Hyperspace has certainly gone through its phases over the years but being an Official Star Wars Fan Club Member is now more beneficial as well as more affordable for fans.
Starting this year Lucasfilm has dropped the combo 1-2 punch of Hyperspace being bundled with the Star Wars Insider. Hyperspace is now available for only $14.95 a year!
Hyperspace has some exciting new content coming and have added a few new features including a digital download area full of cool icons, wallpapers, audio and so much more. Here's a list of what you can expect when you sign up for Hyperspace.
* Early Access and Perks at Official Star Wars Events: This year, the biggest Star Wars parties are Celebration IV on May 24-28, 2007 in Los Angeles, and Celebration Europe on July 13-15 in London. Hyperspace members get early admission to both events -- for Celebration IV, there's an entire day that's available only to Hyperspace members. Sign up today to make sure you don't miss out on this early access. Furthermore, at both Celebrations there will be events and programming exclusive to Fan Club members, such as the Fan Club Lounge where you'll be able to casually chat in person with Star Wars celebrities. Also, Star Wars Fan Club Breakfasts are coming back, available only to Fan Club members -- meet with fellow fans, Star Wars VIP guests and get exclusive keepsakes and goodie bags.
* First Looks and Sneak Peeks at new Star Wars Projects: From time to time, get a glimpse at some of the bold, exciting new frontiers that Star Wars will be exploring in the years ahead.
* Six Issues of Online Supplements for Star Wars Insider: Go beyond the pages of the official magazine with these bonus articles. Often packed with downloadables, these issues give you bonus content not available anywhere else. Also, the archives are filled with classic issues of Lucasfilm Fan Club magazine and other Star Wars Insider articles.
* Bantha Tracks Online: The online celebration of fan creativity and enthusiasm, each issue of Bantha Tracks is packed with photos and stories from fans around the world. And, coming later in the year, more printer-friendly versions of the newsletter so you can share with offline family and friends and keep them in your scrapbook for prosperity.
* Collector Benefits: Get VIP treatment at StarWarsShop with discounts on select merchandise, early purchase rights on hot items and exclusive product opportunities for members only. Get back your subscription price and more with exclusive Shop discounts.

* Test Drive New starwars.com Features: Over the next 12 months, starwars.com will be venturing into new grounds with new features, and Hyperspace members will get an opportunity to try some of them out for the first time.
* Access to An Exclusive Membership Kit: For U.S. fans, the membership kit comes as a free bonus for the base subscription price. This is a physical kit of goodies mailed out during your subscription that includes an exclusive poster, unique extras and a letter from George Lucas. For Canadian and international fans, the membership kit is available with a subscription at a slightly higher price for shipping and handling.
* Instant Access to an Online Membership Kit: While waiting for your physical kit to arrive, dive into a digital kit filled with virtual goodies.

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.
