USA Today has posted an exclusive announcement that Poe Dameron is receiving his own comic series from Marvel this April. The title will flesh out more of Poe’s backstory, missions and pilots of the Resistance.
A new image of the upcoming Walgreens Exclusive 6″ Black Series Darth Vader (Emperor’s Wrath) figure has surfaced on Instagram showing Vader’s removable/damaged right hand. Click the image above for a closer look.
The next Disney Store Exclusive Elite Series figure, Anakin Skywalker (Episode II), is now available in stores. If you missed it (as most of you did, if interested), it will be available for order tomorrow on DisneyStore.com.
Born from the remnants of the Empire, the First Order emerged as a power to be reckoned with in the years following the battle of Endor. The First Order constructed massive fleets of next generation Star Destroyers and TIE Fighters, and bolstered surviving Stormtrooper legions with fresh recruits and powerful new weapons. Take command with the First Order Legion 7 figure Troop Builder Pack!
Disney Store will also introduce Star Wars Legion Helmets, a series of eight vinyl collectible helmets inspired by the Star Wars Legion Helmet project launched in early 2014.
I received an interesting/unexpected email this morning from Walgreens regarding a Prototype Boba Fett which I had on preorder, but first a little background. This preorder was placed on 7/23 using a credit card which I had to have replaced due to a security breach at a national retail chain. I (and many collectors) was/were originally told that there was no way to update credit card information that was used to place the order(s). Fast forward 5 months and read the email I was sent…
Reviews of Hasbro’s 6-Inch Speeder Bike with Biker Scout and Walgreens exclusive Boba Fett in Prototype Armor, plus store reports and a look at new collectibles online.
Halloween is this week and the costumes and decorations have started to go on sale! On this week’s Star Wars Action News hosts Marjorie and Arnie discuss the hard-to-find collectibles that combine Trick-or-Treating with the Galaxy Far, Far Away!
Also on this week’s show–reviews of two new 6-inch figures! First they look at the Hasbro Black Series Biker Scout with Speeder Bike, the first vehicle in the new, larger scale. Does it live up to the preview shown at SDCC?
And then the first Walgreens exclusive Hasbro Star Wars figure–Boba Fett in Prototype Armor. How does this compare to the original outfit, and is it worth the (bounty) hunt?
With Johnathan joining for an On The Pegs segment and a look at the latest offerings from Gentle Giant and Sideshow, it’s all on this new episode of Star Wars Action News!
For collectors in Mexico, it looks like the Walgreens Exclusive 6″ Black Series Prototype Boba Fett will be getting released as a Walmart Exclusive as seen in their holiday promotions.
Thanks to Mr Steel MEX for the tip.
Check out my local TRU today to see if they refreshed their stock of merchandise* and I was surprised find shelf tags the Star Wars Rebels Jedi Reveal Mission Series set.
*Another interesting observation, this particular store killed the entire new set up for the Star Wars line and went back to having 2 standard aisle for product. Weird.
UPDATE: ToysRUs.ca has this set up for preorder now with a 10/17 release date.
There is another. We have received word that Hasbro will be unveiling an official Jedi-Con 2014 exclusive figure on July 28. And according to this image from JediBusiness, it looks like it may feature (6″?) C-3PO*. What do you think? Leave a comment here or in our forums.
Note: For clarity sake, IF this does include C-3PO, it is probably a simple variant on packaging or an included accessory. It is not meant to imply that 3PO is exclusive to Jedi-Con as we know that it will be available in future Black Series assortments.
Funko has just announced via twitter their exclusive Wampa (with severed arm) and Luke Skywalker (Hoth) set for SDCC
