Princess Leia # 1 Now Available

Marvel_Leia_no1

Marvel’s Princess Leia #1 is now available via your local comic shop or online distributor.

When Princess Leia Organa was captured by the Empire as a Rebel spy, she never betrayed her convictions, even in the face of the complete destruction of her home world, Alderaan. When her rescue came, she grabbed a blaster and joined the fight, escaping back to the Rebel Alliance and helping strike the biggest blow against the Empire, the destruction of the Death Star. But in the aftermath of that victory, the question remains; what is a princess without a world?

You can also purchase a digital version from Marvel’s Comic Shop.

SWAN Episode 444: Keep Feeling Fabrikation

Star Wars Action News Enhanced Podcast Feed

Marjorie and Arnie review three of Funko’s Star Wars Fabrikation figures — Yoda, Chewbacca, and Boba Fett! Plus a review of the new Star Wars novel Heir to the Jedi and a look at the first Hot Toys Star Wars figure–Sideshow’s Bespin Luke Skywalker!

At Toy Fair International last week Funko was one of the few companies with lots of new Star Wars toys and collectibles on display.  A rising Force in Star Wars collections, Funko has cornered the market on “cute” Star Wars figures.  Last year they expanded that line to include Star Wars Fabrikations.  They’re part action figure, part plushie, and all adorable.  On this week’s Star Wars Action News Marjorie and Arnie look at three figures in this line:  Boba Fett, Chewbacca, and Yoda!
For more high end Star Wars collectors, the first Star Wars figure from Hot Toys is shipping soon–the Shadow Stormtrooper!  To prepare, listen to a review of that other Hot Toys Star Wars figure–the Bespin Luke Skywalker.  Done as part of Sideshow’s 1/6 scale figure line, this version of Luke was a partnership with Hot Toys and shows what fans can expect from the new company.
With a review of the new Star Wars novel Heir to the Jedia review of the Disney Store exclusive Empire Strikes Back figure set, Star Wars Celebration Anaheim announcements, and more, it’s all in this week’s Star Wars Action News show!

One of the best things about customizing is recognizing the many different techniques and approaches to creating custom figures.  Case in point, recently we’ve seen two very different approaches to creating a Trandoshan – head to the forums for a closer look.

Also, our current Yakfinities Customizing Challenge continues through the end of March – and the theme is Bounty Hunters – so if you’re a customizer, what are you waiting for?  Create a custom and join in the fun… over 40 customs have already been created this round, and we hope to see many more!  And remember, we give away prizes at the end.
