Photos of the new multi-langauge Rebels Saga Legends: SL01 Stormtrooper figure packaging has been added to our HD Photo Gallery. This figure has been released on 3 different cards so far here in the United States.
• Small Peg Hook card • Large peg hook card • Multi-language card
The figure's page now contains photos of all of the variations which are 3 card fronts, 3 card backs, and 2 inserts.
Just got a response back from Hunter PR (Hasbro) about the rumors / statements regarding the Rebels Saga Legends figure case assortments being cancelled or discontinued.
Question: There are some E-tailers that have stated that Hasbro has cancelled their orders for Rebels Saga Legends 3.75" case assortments and has been told they are now discontinued. Can you confirm that the Rebels Saga Legends figures and vehicles have been canceled or discontinued?
Answer: "We just spoke with the Star Wars team and received confirmation that no assortments have been canceled."
We would like to thank Hunter PR for getting back to us.
StarWars.com has posted a excluisve 5 page sneak peak at the upcoming Kanan: The Last Padawan #1 comic. Also revealed are 4 variant covers. This comic will hit stores on April 1st.
"How did a Padawan named Caleb Dume survive Order 66 — and become the rebel hero called Kanan Jarrus? Marvel’s upcoming ongoing series, Kanan: The Last Padawan by writer Greg Weisman and artist Pepe Larraz, will explore the origins of Star Wars Rebels’ resident Jedi cowboy."
The 2015 Rebels Saga Legends SL26 Commander Bly figure has been added to our HD Photo Gallery today. The figure sculpt looks decent but my sample suffers from a sloppy paint application. He has the typical 5 points of articulation with the addition of movable Macro-binoculars on his helmet. He includes 2 pistols which can be holstered on his hips.
I have been under the weather since last week, so I had to postpone taking photos. While recuperating I downloaded the Topps Star Wars Card Trader App to kill the time and have to say I found it pretty fun and addictive.
How it works is when you first install the App you will receive some free digital cards to start out with and receive some free credits. You then will received 25,000 free credits per day and 50,000 every 7th day you login to the App.
You need to buy card packs with these credits to complete the card collections. When you run out of credits you can either buy more or get free credits by visiting the advertisers in the App. Also you can trade with other members as well.
I usually just visit the advertisers to get free credits, but there is a catch. If you want to access the Darth Vader and Yoda Master Packs, which contain the gold cards you must buy credits to make these packs available in the Cantina for 24 hours. This will cost you a minimum of .99 cents.
Every day TOPPS releases special insert cards. These special cards are usually available in the base packs and special packs. These inserts are usually limited and eventually run out.
If you are into this and looking for card trades my username is "SWCOLLECTOR".
My Red, Blue, and White collections are complete and I have tons of duplicates to trade away. Also I have some duplicates of Golds, Yellows, and some Inserts. I am a fair trader and usually trade 1 to 1 for the same type of card unless its a special insert. Don't get angry if you offer your white base card for my limited insert and I decline.
If your trying to hunt down the Star Wars Digital Release Commemorative Collection Sets they are in stock at Target.com for $19.99 each. You can also use the "find in store" button to check stock at your local stores.

"John Williams is currently hard at work composing the score for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which will be recorded in Los Angeles. For the recording of the score, Williams will work with members of the superb freelance orchestra with which he’s recorded numerous film scores over the years. The music will be recorded over several months while working in tandem with the film’s editorial and special effects teams on the West Coast".
Just added the 2015 Rebels Saga Legends SL25 Luke Skywalker (Endor) figure to our HD Photo Gallery. The sculpt looks great and unlike the Princess Leia (Endor) figure, Luke's Head and Helmet looks to be 2 pieces (helmet not removable) and has much more detail then Leia. Not sure why Hasbro did not do the same 2 piece head and helmet design for Leia as it looks so much better. Luke includes his trusty Lightsaber.
Partaking in dodgy dealings with our Rebel heroes comes the scoundrel Vizago & his Ralph McQuarrie-inspired Droid Bodyguard, IG-RM! They're part of one of Hasbro's latest Mission Series 2-Packs & you should DEFINITELY consider a purchase! Tune into the SithLord229 HD Video Review to find out why!
"We’re thrilled to share that Star Wars Battlefront will be taking part in Star Wars Celebration next month in Anaheim, CA from April 16-19. We could not think of a better or more appropriate place to debut the game officially for the first time than the premier event that celebrates the Star Wars universe and the legions of fans who have fallen in love with it."
The 2015 Rebels Saga Legends SL27 Han Solo (Endor) figure has been added to our HD Photo Gallery today. The sculpt of this figure really brings back memories of the vintage figure that I had back in the 80s. Overall he looks good and my only complaint is a slight sloppy paint application. Just like most of these budget figures he has 5 points of articulation. As for accessories Han includes a Blaster.
