The most-anticipated comic convention of the year is finally here: San Diego Comic-Con 2017 begins tomorrow! But before SDCC 2017 coverage can begin, I want to stop and take a look at the latest bi-monthly Star Wars treat from Funko–the Funko Smuggler’s Bounty Droids box! The Funko Jedi box is now available for order, and if its contents are anywhere near as enticing as those in this box, no one is going to want to miss it…Continue Reading →
While I visited the Gentle Giant booth every day of Star Wars Celebration Orlando last month, I didn’t get to get any of their exclusives because of the crazy, convoluted style of lottery you had to win just for a chance to buy them. But while I didn’t physically get anything new from Gentle Giant Ltd. at the show, I did get to see some new products on display for the first time. And several of those new items are now available, including the Gentle Giant Ceremonial Leia Mini Bust that’s now up for order!Continue Reading →
We’ve known since last year that Funko was officially planning on finally releasing Star Wars Mystery Minis, but details regarding the first series have been pretty hard to come by. The 2017 Funko Catalog given out at the New York Toy Fair in February gave us our first look at the wave (probably unintentionally early) via drawings, but that was the last we heard of the hotly-awaited new series. But hey, what better day for Funko to finally put the Mystery Minis A New Hope figures set up for order than the day that the Fourth is with us all, right?Continue Reading →
The votes are in, and although there’s none of the crazy drama surrounding this year’s Hasbro Star Wars Fan Poll that we got last year with Jaina Solo and Starkiller (thank God), a non-movie character has triumphed once again!
The results are official: the Star Wars Vintage Figure Fan Poll winner is none other than Doctor Aphra!Continue Reading →

I apologize profusely for the lack of updates during Star Wars Celebration Orlando–it turns out to be a lot more difficult providing coverage of this convention while experiencing it than I expected! I’ll be posting all my photos and impressions throughout the coming week, but for now, let’s talk about two of the biggest reveals from the show: the SDCC 2017 Exclusive Star Wars Black Series Thrawn figure and Luke’s Landspeeder set!Continue Reading →
Although Hasbro had been dropping nuggets of information all week long (including the reveals of Gree, Thrawn, Rey’s Speeder and Luke’s Landspeeder), they saved two of the biggest and most delectable treats to debut at the Star Wars Celebration Orlando … Continue Reading →
When Hasbro debuted the first of its Star Wars Celebration Orlando reveals yesterday–Rey’s Force Awakens Speeder–some fans called foul that we were getting Rey’s Speeder and not Luke’s in the 40th Anniversary year. Well, now everybody can be happy, because … Continue Reading →
I’m currently between connecting flights en route to Star Wars Celebration Orlando, and while I wasn’t sure I was gonna live through the turbulent-heavy flight I just got off, I’m glad I did–because after unboarding, I got to see the … Continue Reading →
We’re into the single digits–as of writing, we’re just 9 days away from the beginning of Star Wars Celebration Orlando 2017! And with just over a week until the event begins, we’ve finally got news of what’s expected to be the last major exclusive announced for the event: the LEGO Star Wars Detention Block Rescue set! This is definitely a sweet little brick-built scene, but if you want one, it won’t be obtained just by strolling up to the LEGO booth casually…Continue Reading →
