Happy Birthday to Darth Tyranus himself, Christopher Lee, whose character was introduced to Star Wars fans in Attack of the Clones along with his unique, curved-hilt lightsaber. - 1922 Christopher Lee Born
Set during the latter years of the Clone Wars, this intergalactic adventure will allow you to explore the open worlds of Tatooine and Coruscant, battle droids in Geonosis, and partake in an epic boss battle in Naboo.
Along the way, you’ll use the Force and master your Lightsaber skills as you fight alongside Ahsoka Tano, Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Yoda to save the Republic and defeat the Separatists. You can also choose to take on the adventure as cunning Sith villain Darth Maul!
Each Jedi character is given specialized Force combat abilities and Force finishing moves, as well as unique Lightsaber forms with powerful combo attacks. As Jedi Master Yoda, for example, players will leap into action with his agile and acrobatic prowess. Jedi Padawan Ahsoka Tano uses her lightning-fast dual Lightsabers to carve up Battledroids, while Darth Maul uses his double-bladed Lightsaber and power in the dark side of the Force in a death-defying duel against the Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi.
The Twilight of the Republic Play Set will come with the Video Game Starter Pack when Disney Infinity 3.0 releases this fall.
The 2015 Black Series #08 Stormtrooper has been added to our HD Photo Gallery today. This figure is not a direct repack of the 2013 Black Series #13 Stormtrooper as he has a different Helmet, more paint details, and etc. Does these new details improve this figure? Somewhat in my opinion, but I really wish Hasbro would just attempt to make a all new ultimate 3.75" Stormtrooper from scratch and give up on reusing older body parts from past Stormtroopers.
Some issues on this newest incarnated Stormtrooper from Hasbro is that his hands don't hold the weapons very well and his trigger fingers don't match up to the gun triggers and actually get in the way of holding his weapons. Also on the sample I have, his Blaster will not fit in his gun holster at all. I could probably use a razor blade and cut the holster opening up a bit more so the Blaster would fit, but I don't want to risk damaging it.
As we previously mentioned when we posted the wave 7 card front previews, The Stormtrooper Insert and card back has #08 stickers placed over the printed #15, so more then likely we can expect a corrected insert and card in the future.
On this day in 1977, audiences were introduced to a farmhand named Luke Skywalker. Exactly six years later they saw him fully evolved into the Jedi Knight we know today. - Star Wars (1977) and Return of the Jedi (1983) both open on this day.
Here we have the 2015 Black Series #07 Darth Vader (Dagobah Test) figure. Hasbro used old and new parts to achieve this figure, which is not a bad thing as he looks great and has lots of articulation. Vader has a Removable Face Plate, Head, and Cape. He also includes his trusty lightsaber. Enjoy the new HD Photos!
Asajj Ventress was a Sith apprentice who trained under Count Dooku, bringing double the trouble to his signature curved hilt lightsaber for her own spin on the weapon. - 2008 Force FX Lightsaber - Asajj Ventress.
One of the highlights of The Phantom Menace was the Boonta Eve Classic Podracing sequence, which was a close finish between AnakinSkywalker and his rival Sebulba.. - 2008 / 2009 Titanium Series - Anakin's Podracer / Sebulba's Podracer.
If the 2015 Black Series #14 Imperial Navy Commander looks familiar there is a reason for that. He seems to be a direct repack of the Vintage Collection VC94 Imperial Navy Commander that was released back in 2012. Even though this figure looks to be a repack, I went ahead and took all new HD Photos and added them to our Photo Gallery. Enjoy!
The 2015 Disney Droid Factory Holographic R2-D2 figure can be found at Disney Parks as we speak with a retail price of $12.95. R2 is already assembled and attached to a card, so there is no need to line up at the Build a Droid stations at the Parks to put him together. R2 can be disassembled into 5 pieces which are Head, Body, 3rd Leg, Left and Right Legs. The overall figure looks pretty good with its translucent blue colored plastic. Enjoy the new HD Pics!
