You might have missed this on our Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Periscope social media channels last night, but I was putting the finishing touches on the toyguide update for the Walgreens Exclusive 6″ Darth Vader (Emperor’s Wrath) and snapped the above photograph. This is not a Photoshop trick or filter, this is the actual figure “lighting up”. Find out how it was achieved by watching the video on our YouTube channel.
@yak_face Just got a text for Kmart saying that my Kylo Ren TBS exclusive just shipped.

We’re receiving several reports (like the one above) that shipping notifications are been sent out for the Kmart Exclusive 6″ Black Series Kylo Ren (Starkiller Base) figure.
Be sure to keep an eye on their website as well as it has gone up again (intermittently) today for preorder.

Twitter follower Darren Hayes shares this image he snapped at his local theatre of the first one sheet/poster for The Force Awakens – not surprising since the trailer will be attached to The Avengers: Age of Ultron this weekend.
