Collectors that missed the initial release of the Disney Store Exclusive Elite Series box set of die cast figures (first available at D23) have another chance to score one via Woot!. They have it marked down 41% ($409.99) from the original $700 MSRP. This set is a limited edition of 500 pieces and commands a high price on the secondary market.

I’ve personally already picked up many items from this collector (and kid!) friendly store and will continue to make them one of my weekly stops.
This place has a fantastic variety of loose and carded toys across a variety of brands such as Star Wars, GI JOE, Transformers, LEGO and more. The prices are very fair too.
Be sure to check them out if you’re in the area, and “like” their Facebook Page!

Today, Disney and Lucasfilm announced that Star Wars: Episode VIII, originally scheduled for release in summer 2017, will now debut on December 15, 2017.
The move follows the extraordinary success of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which was the first Star Wars movie to premiere outside the traditional summer blockbuster window and smashed numerous records, including biggest domestic and global debuts of all time as well as the biggest domestic second and third weekends, en route to becoming the highest grossing domestic release of all time with over $861.3 million and the third biggest global release ever with $1,886.7 billion.
Written and directed by Rian Johnson, Star Wars: Episode VIII is currently in preproduction and will begin principal photography in London next month. Kathleen Kennedy and Ram Bergman will produce and J.J. Abrams, Jason McGatlin, and Tom Karnowski will executive produce. Stay tuned for exciting updates in the coming weeks.

SlashGear.com has posted an article that features an image we shared via social media last night and have posted another giving “Matt” the Black Series treatment.
