StarWars.com has made a post stating that Marvel Entertainment has announced that Star Wars comics are coming to Marvel’s prestigious Epic Collection format. The first will be Star Wars Legends Epic Collection: The Empire Vol. 1 TPB.
"Star Wars Legends Epic Collection: The Empire Vol. 1 TPB will offer a new way for fans to collect and read iconic Star Wars stories across the past 35 years of published titles. These oversized, self-contained color collections will bring the adventures of the Rebellion, the Galactic Empire and more to the masses with exciting new Epic Collections."
Today we revisit the 2000 Power of the Jedi Mon Calamari (Officer) figure. The sculpt of this figure looks great, except for the hips. They just look a little to small when compared to his waist. This figure has 6 points of articulation which are Head, Shoulders, Waist, and Hips. The Mon Calamari (Officer) includes a Removable Helmet and Blaster.
Another Monday, and another Star Wars Rebels short has been released today on the Star Wars YouTube Channel. This weeks short is titled "Entanglement" and features Zeb. Next Monday (9/1/14) will be the 4th and final short per the Press Release from Lucasfilm. After that, I guess we will have to wait till October 3rd, when we get to see the first full Episode on TV.
Added to our HD Photo Gallery today is the 2014 Black Series #29 Wedge Antilles figure. This newer version of Wedge looks great and includes the typical articulation that we expect from the Black Series. He includes a Removable Helmet, Blaster, and Rifle. Enjoy the new HD Photos!
In 2001 Hasbro released the Power of the Jedi Queen Amidala (Royal Decoy) figure. This was towards the end of this Toy Lines life cycle and Hasbro decided to make some changes to the basic figure's packaging. First off they stopped including Jedi Force Files and second, Hasbro decided to stop using generic cards with UPC stickers and tailored the cards to the specific figure.
Amidala has a nice sculpt, but the articulation is limited basically to her Shoulders and Elbows. She does have waist articulation also, but it is pretty useless, since she stands up on her plastic skirt due to it being longer then her legs. There are no accessories include with this figure.
The Power of the Jedi Tessek figure was released back in 2000 and retailed for $4.99. A nice sculpt with 7 points of articulation, which are Head, Shoulders, Left Elbow, Waist, and Hips. Tessek includes a Blaster Pistol.
The Black Series #26 Darth Vader figure is by far the best looking 3.75" Vader to date. The sculpt just looks amazing and he is super articulated. In my opinion there is one flaw with this figure though and its that the head pops off fairly easy when you move it around as we mentioned earlier in the week. The 2 samples I have also suffer from sloppy paint applications on his Chest and Belt Boxes, as they were applied slightly off. Vader is packed with a Lightsaber and Lightsaber Hilt.
Other then that, this is definitely a figure most collectors would want to purchase for their collection. Enjoy the new HD Pics!
Disney Interactive and Lucasfilm today launched Star Wars: Commander, a free-to-play combat strategy game exclusively for iOS first. In the game, fans will join either the Rebel Alliance or the Galactic Empire to recruit and lead an unstoppable force across the Star Wars galaxy in epic battles to claim ultimate victory for their side.
Star Wars: Commander features the full array of vehicles, weapons and technology from the Star Wars universe. Players who rally to the Rebellion will call upon iconic heroes such as Han Solo, Chewbacca and Princess Leia to support missions for justice and freedom, while leaders of the Imperial forces will command AT-ATs, TIE fighters and Stormtroopers to gain control of the galaxy.
Players can join the battle for control of the galaxy on iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch by downloading the game from the Apple App Store.
Revisited today is the 2000 Power of the Jedi Chewbacca (Dejarik Champion) figure. A great sculpt for the time, but Chewbacca would have really benefited from some elbow joints. Chewy includes a Dejarik Table which was nice to see instead of his trademark Bowcaster.
Variations: • Jedi Force File# 5708300000. • Jedi Force File# 5708300100. • Card back# 571100.0000. • Card back# 571100.0100.
Lots of emails coming in asking about a reported issue with The Black Series #26 Darth Vader figure, so I just opened him up to investigate.
The question is does his head pop off very easy, when you move it around?
In my opinion the answer is yes. When Vader is wearing his cape and you move his head around, it detaches very easy from his body. The issue? The neck post is a bit short and does not really snap into the head very well, due to the cape being crammed into the same hole. Even after lining up the Cape's neck hole and attaching Vader's head, it still pops off pretty easy. Now this is just my opinion and I am not forcing it onto anyone, but you'll see what we are talking about when you pick this figure up.
Other then the head popping off, the figure is amazing.

Disney's Exclusive talking Boba Fett is now in stock at DisneyStore.com. Price is $29.95 plus shipping. Called my local stores to check and see if they had any in stock as well, but they have not received any shipments as of yet.
The 2014 Black Series #27 Jabba's Skiff Guard figure has been added to our HD Photo Gallery today. Another great figure from Wave 5. The head sculpt looks better then I expected in hand and you can really see the details in our HD Photos. He includes a Force Pike and Blaster. If and when this figure hits retail stores, it may be hard to track one down, due to the fact that he is 1 per case in this assortment.
Its Monday and StarWars.com has posted a new video short titled "Art Attack" which features Sabine. This is 2 of 4 shorts that will debut each Monday up until September 1st, per Lucasfilm's Press release.
Added to our HD Photo Gallery today is the all new 2014 Black Series #28 Ree-Yees figure. Hasbro did a great job on the sculpt and gave him plenty of articulation. The sample I have photographed has a little bit of a sloppy paint application, but this seems to be "the norm" from Hasbro right now. Ree-Yees is packed with 2 Blasters. One downside to this figure, is that he is only 1 per case in the Wave 5 assortment.
Be sure to check out all the new HD photos as our photos are extremely clear, large, and shows every little detail. Enjoy!
