After hours of aggravation, I was able to get the damn Nerf mechanism on Hasbro’s new AT-ACT finally working.
I don’t even know exactly what I did to fix it, but I guess jiggling it around as much as I did after removing the head screws aligned something that was out of whack. Anyways, more details after the jump!

Looks like Hasbro is tapping into the app market for their Star Wars products for 2016. The image above is captured from the Hera’s A-wing packaging and it looks to be present on all products set for release this fall. No word yet on the features of the app but surely we’ll learn about that at SDCC.
UPDATE: The app is built by Bad Robot Interactive and will allow people to film their toys and add movie special effects. Thanks to @TheSuperJedi for the info.

Fantasy Flight Games has announced their latest expansion in their popular X-wing Miniatures Game. This release includes the ARC-170, Special Forces TIE Fighter, Protectorate Starfighter and Shadow Caster.
Between these four expansions, you will find zero turrets. Instead, you will find two auxiliary firing arcs, one mobile firing arc, and a starfighter with zero shields… whose pilots practice flying straight at their foes. And there is plenty more to this wave than just its ships. You will also meet Poe’s mother, discover new First Order tech, welcome a handful of Mandalorians to the Scum faction, and gain the ability to fly Sabine Wren as a Scum bounty hunter.
Look for Wave IX and its expansions to arrive at retailers late in the third quarter of 2016.
