As you know, the characters from The Force Awakens, Rogue One, The LastJedi, and Solo, were shrouded in secrecy with the use of code names. For Episode IX and The Mandalorian, that practice continues. I found out a few of these a while ago and waited for a little more corroboration but now that the Toy Fair dust has settled a bit, I feel now would be a good time.
For Episode IX, code names revolve around famous cities, like London, Oslo, Bruges, Limerick, and Boston. As for The Mandalorian, I’ve only seen one name referenced thus far and that is “Huckleberry”.
How these names are assigned to the characters has yet to be deciphered, but I would think it’s safe to assume that TheMandalorian may be “Huckleberry”. More as we learn more…
Confirming our initial report from back in December, StarWars.com has posted the official announcement of “Triple Force Friday” (October 4) which commemorates the launch of Episode IX, The Mandalorian and EA’s Jedi: Fallen Order title. Stay tuned for more as we get closer.
We are ONE MONTH from the release of the HasLab Sail Barge and we felt this was the perfect time to reveal our partnership with DorksideToys in announcing The Ultimate Giveaway: The HasLab Jabba’s Sail Barge*.
That’s right! One lucky fan will have the opportunity to win their very own Sail Barge. But wait there’s more! If you are attending Star Wars Celebration Chicago, you will get the chance at a second Barge to be given away via DorksideToys at their SWCC booth.
Full details will be announced as we get closer to the barge’s release date next month and Celebration Chicago in April.

If the newest official animation from Lucasfilm isn’t “doing it” for you, check out this amazing submission via Daz Tibbles for this year’s Star Wars Fan Awards. I’d love to see a series or feature length films in this style — it’s truly impressive.
