A few well timed tweets from us this afternoon resulted in Twitter follower @1JosephBOrtiz scoring wave 2 of the 40th Anniversary Collection of 6″ figures from his local TRU in Arizona.
Frank D’iorio is giving you sneak peek of the massive project planned for this year’s Star Wars Celebration tonight via Twitter.
Just a quick update for you to tune into TWITTER – THIS Wednesday night – MARCH 22 at 9 PM Eastern time. Find me @dioramaworkshop. I will be talking about EVERYTHING that you guys will experience at our booth next month, including showing you a PEEK at the COMPLETED Tile prototypes that you can choose to build. Make sure to tune in and I will answer as many questions as I can if I understand how that technology works LOL. See you Wednesday !!!!
Instagram follower akastarwars has just notified us that the 6″ Black Series wave containing Baze Malbus and Chirrut Îmwe has been found at Target in Denver, CO. The hunt begins….
Funko has just released (via Twitter) their concept art for their upcoming Bodhi Rook POP! from Rogue One. Soon you’ll be able to add “the pilot” to your collection!
Yesterday, Dave Filoni took to social media to praise Funko’s selection of Star Wars Rebels POP! figures. In the group shot, you can see the March Smuggler’s Bounty Exclusive Maul as well as another figure rumored to be pack alongside him – can you spot it?
Looks like the first product leaks for Rogue One are starting to hit the street as Instagram follower @jedi_skywalkerr posts an in-hand pic of Wave 1 which includes Jyn Erso (Jedha), Cassian Andor, Imperial Death Trooper, K-2SO, Kylo Ren (Unmasked) and Rey with BB-8 (lightsaber variant).
Update: the user has removed the image.
