Hot Toys was out in full force at San Diego Comic-Con revealing several new pieces including the eerily lifelike 1:6 Scale Luke Skywalker from The Force Awakens. Head on over to SideshowToy.com for a huge gallery of Star Wars items and more.
Also revealed during the panel, wave 3 of the Black Series Titanium Series Helmet. They include Sabine with Darth Vader (Star Wars Rebels and Boushh with Boba Fett. Click the image for a closer look.

StarWars.com has announced that the last scene for Episode VIII has been filmed and the anticipated sequel has officially wrapped production (aside from some pick ups and reshoots I would imagine). Now the long wait until December 2017.
Hasbro has updated their booth with a few more Black Series figures like Darth Revan and Sabine, but what drew our attention was the much-improved look of the 6″ Princess Leia Organa tweeted out by Hasbro themselves. A far cry from what was shown at Celebration Europe last week.
Continuing the long tradition of holiday-themed mini busts, Gentle Giant has revealed and is now taking preorder for the Holiday BB-8 mini bust. Open to PG Member only, this seasonal version of BB-8 features a permanently mounted string of multi-color decorative lights.
PG Member have until August 10 to reserve your bust, and as with others in the past, they tend to sell through quickly.
Last year’s SDCC was a bit of a letdown as product for The Force Awakens was kept heavily under wraps until Force Friday (and the preceding leaks). This year, it looks like the mystery box won’t be under lock and key as much as Hasbro is set to reveal new products from Rogue One starting tomorrow.
