Stopped by my local Toys R Us here in Texas and found the Star Wars Rebels - Reveal the Rebels: Jedi Reveal sets on the shelf. There is 6 sets per case with a retail price of $19.99 each. Happy Hunting!
The 2014 Star Wars Rebels: The Inquisitor's TIE Advance Prototype Vehicle has been added to our HD Photo Gallery this evening. Not really a fan of the reduced sized vehicles, but this one looks better then I expected. Enjoy the new Pics!
Today I have updated our HD Photo Gallery with the 2014 Rebels AT-DP (All Terrain Defense Pod) Vehicle. This includes boxed, loose, directions, and sticker sheet photos. Be sure to check out all the new pics!
A while back, Lucasfilm announced that the Star Wars Rebels: Spark Of Rebellion DVD would be released at retail on 10/14/14, but according to Walmart they are releasing it on 10/03/14, which is the same day it will air on TV via the Disney XD channel.
I have personally seen the signage in stores and also Walmart.com states the release date of the DVD is on 10/3/14 as well. More then likely Walmart cut a deal with Lucasfilm to release this earlier then other retailers, or someone in Walmart's Marketing Department made a big mistake.
Was at the Mall today, so I stopped by the Disney Store and they had the Star Wars ''A New Hope'' and ''Return of the Jedi'' Figurine Playsets. The figures in these sets were about 3.5" to 4" tall but lacked any articulation. They looked ok, but nothing to get to excited about, but what do you expect for $12.95 each? These would make great cake toppers for any Star Wars Fan though. (kidding).
The Power of the Jedi IG-88 (Bounty Hunter) figure was released back in 2000 and packed on a Collection 2 card. Hasbro did a great job on the sculpt and he looks better then some of the other figures we have seen the past few years . There was one issue with this figure though. For some reason Hasbro originally produced this figure with a closed right hand, but then corrected this issue and released him with a open right hand. IG-88 has 7 points of articulation which are Upper Head, Lower Head, Shoulders, Chest, and Hips. IG-88 includes a Pulse Cannon and Removable Bandolier.
Variations: • Card back# 571100.0100. • Card back# 571100.0300. • Closed right hand. • Open right hand.
A new video series called "From Concept to Collectible" has been posted over at the Star Wars YouTube Channel. These videos will give us a behind the scenes look on how the designers at Hasbro develop toys from the early stages to completion. The first video covers The Black Series 6" Speeder Bike with Biker Scout. Interesting stuff, be sure to check it out.
Added to our HD Photo Gallery today is The Black Series 6-Inch #02 Darth Vader figure. The sculpt and articulation of this figure is just amazing. Vader includes a removable 2 Piece Helmet, Lightsaber Hilt and Blade.
If I had to nitpick some issues with this figure it would be that his helmet does not really snap into place or fit flush on his head, leaving a small gap between the Helmet's faceplate and lower base. Also not really a fan that his cape is sewn to his Chest Armor.
Be sure to check out the new HD Pictures and form your own opinion.
The "Rebels Saga Legends" (yes thats what Hasbro is calling it) Toy Line lists has been added to our site. Some of the toys from this Line have already started to hit retail, but the "Official" release date on most of this merchandise is suppose to be in October.
Today I have added the 2014 Black Series 6-Inch #03 Luke Skywalker to our HD Photo Gallery. This figure's sculpt looks fairly good with lots of articulation. Luke includes a Lightsaber Hilt, Blade, and 2 Interchangeable Jacket Panels.
