We've been experiencing major problems with our host so nothing has changed in a month. I did manage to put up scans of the Six-Shooter Guide and Decal sheet in the Inserts section of the site.

I also wanted to let everyone know that this site will go down at the end of the month and I hope to get it back up 2 weeks after.

I just wanted to let you know I have 6 videos captured and transferred to CD. They are in the quicktime format and viewable at 320x240. They run anywhere from 500 to 600 meg, which means unless I run them through the compression process again, making them smaller and lower resolution, it will take 13 cds per set. Once I get all 13 episodes transferred I will let you know if you're in the Starcom list. If you're not in the list then look for an announcement here, and on the Supplies page located in the Depot.
Help, I would like to borrow 3 original episodes from someone so I can transfer from an original tape rather than a copy. We could work a trade or you could lend them to me and I'll send them back. Here are the three originals I would like to borrow, Fire and Ice, The Long Fall and the Caverns of Mars. I have second gen copies to use in case I get no help.
..:// TUE. 12.19.2000
I just added 2 brand spankin' newly discovered playsets made by Mattel. They're Mobile Action Pods called, Missile Station and Big Cannon Fortress.

Coming soon, starting next monday Martin Joynes, an ex-Coleco UK division employee, will be kindly supplying us with a page a day from the Starcom Bible. He rescued it from the waste bin when Coleco UK closed down. We will then put up every weeks worth on the site listed under the History section as the Starcom Bible. Updates for the week will be performed every weekend. So sign up for the club email list if you would like to see the pages before then. Also notice I have changed the background to be much lighter and easier to read with text over it. Also I have added Ward Schultz to both the contact list and the bottom of every page. He has been a great help in keeping this website as well as club list going. He knows a lot about customizing and pretty much anything else Starcom related.
..:// TUE. 7.11.2000
Look under the Depot section of the site and view some new customs from Gary Anderson and Mikkel Small.

Finally updated the Supply Depot section with its very first Starcom item for sale. You can now get all 13 episodes from the first season of Starcom the animated series. Keep in mind I don't make any money making the copies unless you want to count 30 cents. There are only 5 left of the 8 copies I made. Also a partial listing has been done for the newest Shadow Force vehicle called the Attack Trike, plus a few misc. updates. The next update will include some wonderful customs from Ward Schultz. They are very cool and I look forward to showing them off on the Custom section of the site.
..:// MON. 5.22.2000
Just uploaded a New vehicle to the Shadow Force vehicle section. The mysterious Shadow Mini-Tank. This was only released in Europe by Mattel in 1990 about a year or two after Coleco Toys went bankrupt and Mattel acquired the rights to Starcom. Could be a fourth or fifth series release.
..:// THU. 5.18.2000
We updated the Fan section under the Depot with 5 Desktop Images you can use on your computer. More are planned and on the way. Also the Links page has been updated with 2 new Starcom Links. Lastly the Art Contest has been extended 2 more weeks, so get those entries in to help possibly win you a complete set of Starcom Videos.

Its not a major update but we thought it was one worthy of mentioning. 9 pages including the cover of the Starcom coloring book by Golden Books were scanned, cleaned up and uploaded to the Depot section of the site on the Collectibles page. Feel free to download all of the images. If you're really feeling creative, you can color some of them and submit them to us for the Fan Art section also in the Depot section of the site. Lastly, if your just a visitor to the site and haven't joined the list, located on the Home Page, yet then you need to. We will be using this artwork for a contest coming soon.
..:// FRI. 4.28.2000
We just added a couple more FAQ's and some detailed instructions on how to repair a Starcom motor/engine. You can find all of them in the FAQ section under the Depot. Over the weekend we'll have some more updates, in particular some scans from a coloring book of some of the characters from the Cartoon series. I'll let everyone know when they hit the web. Thanks, enjoy the tips under the FAQ section.

Stop by and let Ward know what you think of his work so far.
..:// THU. 1.20.2000
I just wanted to point out that we are always updating this site so if it looks like very little has happened on the main level pages you will need to dig a little deeper. For instance we have updated the club, inserts and collectibles sections in the Depot. We have also been constantly updating the figures and vehicles sections.
..:// SUN. 1.9.2000
Well not a ton of things have changed since the last update but I managed to put up bio cards and package images for about 10 more figures and vehicles. I have some more coming later this week. Also I found out that Admiral Brickley wasn't the figure that came with the Starbase Command set. It was Maj. Tony Barona. All area's of Brickley's appearance have been changed to reflect the real figure. If anyone ever notices an error like that, please let us know. The next update should be the cartoon section. Thanks and enjoy.
..:// SUN. 12.19.1999
After a long weekend of work you should now be able to view every section under both Our Forces and The Enemy sections. Most of the vehicles are up but we still need better images of some vehicles and most packages if you can supply them. I would like to mention that we have the list on Onelist for Starcom collectors to join. Please join, it only takes a minute. Also wanted to say that the Starcom Online Archives site and us have joined in a partnership, so please stop by Mikkel's site where you'll find more information about Starcom. His website is listed on the Links page and other various locations around this site. Next update will probably be small error tweaks and hopefully more images throughout the site. The major update will be the Cartoon section being created by Patrick Stewart. See you then!

The Vehicle sections for the Shadow Force are all done. I should get the Starcom vehicles complete within the next couple days.

Let me know if you would like this to be a discussion list or a What's New type of list.

Take a look around and feel free to contact us if you have any information or ideas you want to contribute. Take care and thanks for stopping by.
