If you have been holding off on the Toys R Us Exclusive Black Series Battle on Endor Pack due to its $99.99 price tag your in luck as its now on sale for $69.99 at ToysRus.com. You can either have it shipped (Free shipping on orders $49 or more) or select a store pick up. You can also just go to your local store and have them price match it as well.

I am not sure how long this sale will last, so don't wait to long.

This is the 3rd time my local Walgreens has gotten these in the past month, but the first time I have seen the actual display.

Another note, the plastic hang tab seems to be separating from some of the boxes when hung on the pegs.

Today I have added the 2014 Black Series #02 Luke Skywalker figure to our HD Photo Gallery. If this figure looks a bit familiar thats because most of this figure uses recycled parts from the 2012 Vintage Collection's VC95 Luke Skywalker (Hoth Outfit) figure. Luke is packed with a Lightsaber, Saber Hilt, and Blaster. Enjoy the new pics!

In Rebels Recon #7, StarWars.com talks with the creators of the Star Wars Rebels episode "Empire Day," examines the animation process, and shows a special preview of “Gathering Forces.”

Was pretty impressed with the Disney Die Cast Vehicles when I seen them last Saturday, so I decided to go back to my local store today and pick up what they had in stock which was:

• Falcon (Deluxe)
• X-Wing
• Snowspeeder
• B-Wing
• Landspeeder
• AT-AT (Deluxe)
• Slave I
• Darth Vader TIE Fighter.

I added some better photos to our Facebook page if you want to check them out.

Was surfing DisneyStore.com and noticed that they have the Star Wars Ultimate Die Cast Vehicle Set, which retails for $99.95 in stock. They also have all the single vehicles in stock as well. Click on through to check them out.

Stopped by my local Disney Store here in Texas yesterday and found some of the Die Cast Vehicles.

They were:
• Snowspeeder
• B-Wing Landspeeder
• AT-AT (Deluxe) 
• Slave I
• Darth Vader TIE Fighter.

Price was $9.95 for standard vehicles and the deluxe was $19.95. I took some photos with my iPhone, which can be seen on our Facebook Page.

More press photos from Hasbro. Here we have The Black Series 6" Deluxe (Wave 2) which are:

• Luke Skywalker and Wampa
• Han Solo and Taun Taun

Be sure to check them out on our Facebook Page.

Hasbro has released some press photos of The Black Series 6" #09 Han Solo (Stormtrooper Disguise) and  #10 Bossk figures. You can check out the photos on our Facebook Page.

Stopped by my local Toys R us here in Texas today and found the Rebels Deluxe 12" figures. First time I have seen them at my local stores. Price was $14.99 each.

Just finished photographing the 2014 Black Series #04 Darth Malgus figure and I have added him to our HD Photo Gallery. This figure is basically the same as the 2012 Vintage Collection VC96 Darth Malgus figure, but with a poor paint application. Enjoy all the new HD Photos!

When I originally found the 12" Ezra, Stormtrooper, and Kallus figures last month at Toys R Us, the repacked Vader, Clone Trooper, and Luke in the case were still packed in the older Saga Legends Vader Packaging. But when I found them again today, they were in the new Rebels Saga Legends Packaging. I know some people don't like these, but thought I would post the info for those that do.

Added to our HD Photo Gallery is the 2014 Black Series #06 Yoda figure. This is a direct repack of the Black Series #22 Yoda figure that was previously released earlier this year. Enjoy the new Pics!

In Rebels Recon #6, StarWars.com talks with the creators of the Star Wars Rebels episode "Out of Darkness," looks at the character-design process, and shows a special preview of “Empire Day.”

"Out of Darkness" finds Sabine growing frustrated with Hera and Kanan’s secrecy. The Mandalorian demands to accompany Kanan on a rendezvous with a mysterious contact, but the two find that their meeting place is infested with deadly fyrnocks. They escape, and Sabine learns to have faith in Hera’s leadership.

You can view the video on the Star Wars YouTube Channel.

Picked up the Clone Wars The Lost Missions Blu-ray from Best Buy this morning for $32.99. The Packaging is just your bare bones Blu-ray case. Inside the case is 2 Blu-Ray Disc and 2 paper inserts which is advertisements for Disney's Movie Rewards and Movie Club.

Bonus Features: 16-Minute Clone Wars Documentary and 4 never-before-broadcast Story Reels.

Was hoping for a bit more, but I am just happy that I can now complete my Clone Wars blu-ray collection. Took a pic of the blu-ray cover so you can see all the details.

Watch the full Episode of Star Wars Rebels: Episode 6 "Empire Day" right now on WatchDisneyXD.com or on the Mobile Watch Disney XD App.

Here is the Plot summery "After the crew of the Ghost wreaks havoc on the Imperials’ Empire Day celebration – an annual event commemorating the founding of the Empire – they discover an old friend of Ezra’s parents who has escaped with secrets vital to the Empire. Pursued by Agent Kallus and the Inquisitor, the rebels attempt to smuggle the refugee off-world – but not before learning he has information regarding the fate of Ezra’s parents".

This episode of Star Wars Rebels will also air on TV via the Disney XD Channel on Monday, 11/17/14 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT. Be sure to check your local listings.

Hasbro has addressed the Head & Neck issues of The Black Series 3.75" #26 & #03 Darth Vader figure. They have extended the neck post that holds Vader's head onto his body.

With the longer neck post, his head does not pop off when you slightly bump or move it anymore. It actually takes a bit of force to get the head to separate now.

Remember you heard it here first!

I went ahead and added The Black Series #03 Darth Vader figure to our HD Photo Gallery today. This figure is just a repack of The Black Series #26 Darth Vader that was released on the Black / Orange Card a few months ago. They look exactly the same, and I dont see any visual changes between the 2. Enjoy the new Photos!

Just a reminder that The Clone Wars (Season 6) The Lost Missions will be released on Blu-Ray and DVD tomorrow 11/11/14.

Our friends From 4-LOM to Zuckuss.com has posted a picture and some info on the Ezra Logo Variants that is showing up in the Toys R Us Exclusive Rebels Reveal the Rebels: Jedi Reveal sets. I was able to track these variants down as well and will add the pictures soon.

Was glad that Hasbro decided to change the design of the Black Series 3.75" packaging to the newer TIE Fighter Pilot cards, but now that I have these in hand, they are pretty disappointing due to quality control.

Here are some of the issues:

• Taped bubbles.
• Bubbles attached hanging off the card and crooked.
• Gray ink splatters all over the card fronts.

Previously Hasbro took care of some of these issues that plagued the Black Series before, but now its like Hasbro just took 2 steps backwards and we are seeing the same problems again.

Hasbro has made a paint change on Yoda's Saber Hilt. Earlier versions (Date Stamp 42181) has a all silver hilt and later versions (Date Stamp 42721) has a silver and black hilt. I have seen a few of each, so they are out there.

Just a note that Yoda's Saber Hilt was all silver when he was previously packed in the 2014 Saga Legends MS10 Mission Series: Senate Duel set, so it looks like it was a recent change.

Found new Rebels and Black Series at my local Toys R Us here in Texas and the cherry on top was it was all BOGO 40% off.

On the pegs and shelves were:
• 2 Cases of Rebels Saga Legends Vehicles (repack wave).
• 2 Cases of new 3.75" Black Series.
• 2 Cases of Rebels Saga Legends Mission Series.
• 1 Case of 3.75" Rebels Saga Legends.

Found most of the new toys except for Rebels Saga Legends 3.75" Ezra, Jango, and Stormtrooper. Guess someone bought them before I got there. Going to check my other local store tomorrow, since its their stock day and hopefully find the 3 figures I missed out on. Be sure to check your stores!
