Legends Wave 2 Trickling In…

Reports have been showing the second wave of Legends figures popping up at some Toys”R”us stores.

I’m happy to report that St. Louis can be added to the list of sightings now, as I was able to score a couple of the new Stormtrooper (two in total, across two stores).

Personal Note:  This guy will  be hard to army build at one per case, but hopefully Hasbro realizes that this is one 5POA figure that definitely is in demand, and will do something good about it. 

UPDATE: New Inquisitor Lightsaber Image in EW

Today’s issue of Entertainment Weekly has listed Star Wars Rebels as part of their 2014 Preview feature and the accompanying photo shows a new image of The Inquisitor with a couple stormtroopers. Interestingly, it reveals that his unique lightsaber staff appears to have a couple modes where it can be used as more of a sword with the full [rotating] ring folding in half to serve as a traditional hand guard.

UPDATE: Article is now online.

SidiousvMaulSavage

Newsarama has posted an exclusive report that the story arc involving Darth Maul in The Clone Wars series will be concluded via a four-part limited edition comic book series titled: Darth Maul: Son of Dathomir this May.

It is a huge disappointment that these episodes won’t be completed in their intended animated form, but at least the story will finally get some closure.
