I picked up a new Star Wars Rebels book today from Toys”R”Us titled Star Wars Rebels: Head-to-Head which matches up characters and vehicles from the new series. It contains a lot of new characters and vehicle details as well as plot points for the series. I posted a sampling of them on our Facebook page, but to remain sensitive to spoilers, I cropped out the plot info from the images.
The softcover book is available now for pre-order on Amazon with a release date of Aug. 26, but you might be able to find yours in-store early as well.

Star Wars Rebels continues the epic tradition of the legendary Star Wars saga with all-new exciting, action-packed adventures. It is a dark time in the galaxy, as the evil Galactic Empire tightens its grip of power from world to world. As the series begins, Imperial forces have occupied a remote planet, ruling with an iron fist and ruining the lives of its people. The clever and motley crew of the starship Ghost is amongst a select few who are brave enough to stand against the Empire. Together, this ragtag group will face threatening new villains, encounter colorful adversaries, embark on thrilling adventures and become heroes with the power to ignite a rebellion.
Scheduled to premiere this October as a one-hour special telecast on Disney Channel, it will be followed by a series on Disney XD channels around the world.

Dan from over at StarWarsCollector.com has posted that he found several new Black Series Deluxe, exclusives, Star Wars Command and Rebels Role Play/Armory items at his local Toys”R”Us. Check out the images here.
Some Target stores are beginning to put out new Rebels product in advance of official store resets. Today I came across some new Lego sets and some of the new Star Wars Command line. If you have a Target store in your area it may be worth your while to swing by and see what you come across, but remember your success rate will likely vary as today I was turned down by a store to get me a new Black Series Deluxe Jabba, even though the store had them in the back (which I think many of us have had similar experiences in the past with that).
