There were a couple new ships present, though–and one of them heralded the arrival of Princess Leia Organa! But is the LEGO Star Wars Resistance Troop Transporter worth its 20% Off sale price online?

Well here’s some news that I feel like I should be really surprised about, but instead am only sort of surprised by: despite the fact that there are still a multitude of Star Wars Figuarts that Bandai Japan showed off last year and hasn’t released yet, the next release in the line won’t be any of those. Coming in November 2016: SH Figuarts Episode II AOTC Obi-Wan Kenobi!Continue Reading →
Rather than actually putting any new Star Wars toys up for order to celebrate May the 4th 216, Hot Toys posted teaser photos of a couple upcoming figures instead.

Though the Hasbro Star Wars Black Series has been running for close to four years, one area the line is still devoid is Astromech droids, as only two have been released.
