Walgreens has a sale on The Black Series 6" figures this week. Prices are $14.99 each through 8/27/16. Not sure if this is Nationwide or not, but most my local stores around South Texas have been receiving the Ahsoka wave for a few months now, so might be worth checking your local store.
Reader Rudy, sends in some photos of the Kmart Exclusive TBS 6" Kylo Ren and the Toys R Us Exclusive 12" Phasma figures being stocked at his local Walmart in Mexico. Kind of crazy to see so many of these exclusives in one place.
This review will be strictly about the Star Wars Rebels: Season 2 (Blu-ray) Disc Set and not a review of the storylines of the 22 Episodes. I have viewed a few Episodes from each of the 3 discs and the bonus content in a controlled home theater room, on a 150” Screen via a Sony 1080P Projector. My audio Source will be a Pioneer Elite Receiver configured with a 9.2 speaker setup. This is the same setup I used when reviewing The Force Awakens Blu-ray.

A bunch of pre-orders have surfaced on Amazon for new Black Series 6" figures from Original Trilogy, Rebels, and Rogue One. Some figures are listed with their correct names, while others are listed by code names. Prices range from $19.99 to $21.99. Items are sold by and shipped by Amazon. Thanks to those that alerted us about this.
Their customer service is closed, so I can't call and try and fish for any information at the moment but its right there in black and white on the product page "Coming Soon".
Please remember I am not guaranteeing these will be back in stock because I have no confirmation yet, but if your in need of one you may want to check out their site and see if they go back up for sale soon.
Update: HasbroToysShop Customer service is open till 8pm, so I just called right before they closed (at 7:58pm lol). Per a agent Angela, she stated she can not confirm or deny they will be back in stock, but recommended to watch the site. So take that info for what you will.
Andi Gutierrez sits down with Lucasfilm employees Matt Fillbrandt, Justin Bolger and Amanda Jean Camarillo and Scott Bromley to talk about the latest Star Wars Battlefront news coming out of Gamescom2016, and share their own reactions to the new Rogue One trailer.
EA: For the first time, we are taking Star Wars™ Battlefront™ to space in the latest expansion pack based on one of the most iconic weapons ever created – the Death Star. The new mode for the expansion pack shown at Gamescom is named Battle Station. This unique mode has players battling across 3 phases - each with a different objective.
In Phase 1 you’ll be flying X-wings and A-wings against TIE fighters and TIE interceptors in space! The main objective in this phase is for Rebels to destroy enough TIE fighters until their Y-wing support can come in to weaken the Star Destroyer’s defenses. Once vulnerable, Rebel starfighters can attack the weak spots in an effort to bring the Star Destroyer down. In an effort to help defend this key asset for the Empire, players along with AI ships will be set up to help defend the Star Destroyer.

We have been getting lots of reports from our readers stating they have been receiving their 2016 SDCC Exclusives from HasbroToyShop.com in the past few days.
Per the reports, most orders are arriving damaged or crushed because items were shipped in flimsy over-sized boxes with minimal packing to protect the items inside. This pretty much puts you at the mercy of Fedex and how rough they are with your shipping box.
Also some of our readers have reported receiving shipping boxes that have arrived uncrushed from Fedex, but the items inside were sent in damaged product boxes from HasbroToyShop.
Not all reports are bad though, as some orders do survive the journey undamaged. The photos posted are of a order that arrived in good condition.
The Official International Trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has made it to YouTube. This International trailer has some different footage then the one StarWars.com released back on August 11th. Its definitely worth checking out. Thanks to those that passed us this information.
