Jimmy Kimmel Previews 6″ Black Series Princess Leia (Sort of)

Last night, Jimmy Kimmel had a special “Force Awakens” themed show featuring the stars of the film and director J.J. Abrams. Check out the custom 6″ Black Series version of Abrams as Han Solo and Jimmy as Princess Leia which incidentally provides a pretty clear look the upcoming 6″ figure – the body and soft goods anyway.

Thanks to HunterPR’s Justin Aclin for the heads-up.

Photonovel Spotlight: CloneCrazy

new beginnings

Yakface Forum member CloneCrazy has posted a new chapter in his “Will Of The Force” series.  Head on over to the forums and take in this very well made addition to his series, and leave him a bit of feedback for this awesome piece of work (unless you’ve gone through the effort of making a photonovel, it’s hard to appreciate just how much time/effort goes into these).

“Desert Den” Playsets Arriving


If you pre-ordered a “Desert Den” playset from Twelfth Parsec, start keeping an eye on your email for a shipping notice as these have begun to arrive on the doorsteps of collectors.

Personal Note:  Independent groups who are actually fans themselves are starting to take advantage of Hasbro’s negligence on the playset front, and hopefully we will see bigger and better things like this in the future.

On any note, head to the forums for a closer look.
