First Order Transmissions Raffle for Puerto Rico and Mexico City

The team at First Order Transmissions is having a raffle to raise funds in an effort to assist those affected by the devastation in Puerto Rico and Mexico City. On October 27, all of those that have donated as little as $10 will be eligible to win one of dozens of prizes offered up from our personal collections as well as donated by followers of our show. As more money is raised, more high-value prizes will be added to the pool. For details, you can check out this post on Facebook and watch our special announcement show on YouTube.

Please help us support this effort by spreading the word and donating. All monies contributed will go directly to the charities promoted.

A Supreme Look at Snoke via SWCT

The Star Wars Card Trader app has a great look at Supreme Leader Snoke via one of its award cards. As you can see, his gold robe is far more subdued than what were getting in the 3.75″ and 6″ scale from Hasbro, which looks even more ridiculous by comparison. Click the image above for a closer look.

Thanks to Corey from First Order Transmissions for the heads-up.

Cardback Shrinkage for The Last Jedi Basic Figures

Our friend and First Order Transmissions co-host Corey has gotten his mechanical hand on the first 11 basic figures from The Last Jedi. Interestingly, Hasbro has elected to scale down the cardbacks once again similar to what they did for the “Lava Vader” and Star Wars Rebels line looks.

Stay tuned for additional images and reviews for all of the first 11 figures coming soon.
