StarWars.com Removes Fan/Collecting Sites Section

Back in 2014, StarWars.com relaunched with a brand new site which had a dedicated section for Fan News and Blog Sites, Fan Collecting Sites and Fan Podcasts. Jake Stevens from From 4-LOM to Zuckuss noticed that those sections now have all been removed from their Community page and replaced with a statement as follows:

Notice: Lucasfilm Ltd. strives to foster an inclusive, diverse and safe environment for our fans and we ask the same of our fan community.

No word yet if these sections will be returning. Until then, you can click on through to check out a screen shot of the section as it once looked.

Rumor Report: Star Wars “Story In A Box” Update

Right before NYCC, we posted a report about an upcoming $10 assortment of Hasbro figures referred to as Star Wars: Story in a Box. The first four figures include Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, Chewbacca and R2-D2. After some further investigating, I’ve found there are four more of these sets (probably wave 2) that includes Princess Leia, Han Solo, Stormtrooper and Yoda. Watch for additional details on this product line soon.

As with all of our advanced rumor reports, details of these products are subject to change and/or cancellation altogether.
