An out of the blue tweet hit my feed this evening from New York Times reporter, Brooks Barnes stating that the Dark Lord of the Sith himself, Darth Vader, will appear in a special ABC primetime re-broadcast of Star Wars Rebels episode on Oct. 26. When pressed further about the return of James Earl Jones as the iconic voice, the reply from a Disney spokesperson was “By order of the Empire, I decline to comment“.

While it has yet to be officially announced (I guess this is it), the new Star Wars Rebels DVD features a trailer for The Clone Wars: The Lost Missions Blu-ray and DVD release coming Fall 2014.
Can’t wait to watch Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion tonight or you don’t get the Disney Channel(s)? Fear not as Walmart is selling it (DVD only, there is no Blu-ray release) in stores now for $12.96. The DVD includes the 4 mini character vignettes as well as a paper craft version of our hero’s ship The Ghost.
According to this image courtesy of Hot Toys, it appears that the upcoming Black Series Yoda (#06) doesn’t feature articulation in the knees. Hot Toys lists the figures as having 22 points of articulation (and you thought we were crazy for breaking down the joints like that) while a figure like the 6″ Clone Trooper has 29 POA.
Click the image above for a closer look at that the pose in the bottom left corner. Disappointing this is.
