Deluxe Cad Bane Loose Images

Among the new items hitting Toys”R”us are the Clone Wars deluxe figures, which includes some great additions to the line… one of those being the new Cad Bane.

“Her Universe” Panel with Ashley Eckstein At SDCC

One of the fastest growing demographics in the Science Fiction field today is the female audience. Realizing this incredibly important and increasing segment, Ashley Eckstein, the voice of Ahsoka Tano on the television series, Star Wars™ : The Clone Wars, has teamed up with The Araca Group, the co-producers & merchandising company behind the Broadway sensation, Wicked, to launch Her Universe™ – a line of merchandise designed exclusively for female fans. Beginning with a license for Star Wars, Her Universe focuses on authentic and high-quality licensed Sci Fi/Fantasy fashion apparel and merchandise.

Eckstein’s new endeavor, however, is not just about selling merchandise. She hopes to start a movement within the Sci Fi community to equally acknowledge the female fan base. Her first step will be coordinating and hosting a special panel at San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday, July 24th from 6:30pm to 7:30pm in Room 24ABC, entitled “Her Universe: Shining the Spotlight on Female Fans – the Past, Present and Future of Science Fiction Through Female Eyes.”
