The Power Of The Force "Too" Expensive!

Ouch! Have you checked the prices on various POTF”2″ stuff recently? Because Research Droids Reviews are winding down to a close, I felt obligated to add some key items that currently are missing from the database. As I don’t have a lot of the items anymore, it necessitates rebuying them…. on the eBay aftermarket no less. Believing that POTF2 stuff has always existed in a “dime a dozen” fashion since its inception, I was shocked to see the prices sellers are trying to get on this classic gold. See it for yourself! Oh man, folks, I don’t know if I am getting to that Millennium Falcon!

RUMOR: Obi-Wan Series In Development?

Star Wars News Net reports that an Obi-Wan Kenobi series will come to Disney+. According to SWNN, Obi-Wan would be a limited series with up to six episodes. However, there is no official confirmation yet, so treat this as a rumor for now.
But if there will be an Obi-Wan series, it would show that Disney and Lucasfilm do listen to fans, since many in the fandom asked for more live action Obi-Wan for quite some time now. It may well be that Disney feels that a movie might be a risk, after Solo flopped at the box office, not knowing perhaps if general audiences would like to see an Obi-Wan movie as well. By making Obi-Wan a Disney+ series the production will not only have a somewhat smaller budget, but Disney can also be certain that Star Wars fans will now have one more reason to subscribe to the service. Obi-Wan would be the third exclusive Disney+ Star Wars series on top of the all new season of The Clone Wars. What are your thoughts? Would you be happy about a limited Obi-Wan series? A series does give more time to develop characters and plot than a movie. Which is certainly one of the advantages of a tv show, whereas a movie would probably have been pretty much focused on action only. Leave your thoughts in the comments!

Hasbro CEO Brian Goldner was a bit more muted when asked about Toys ‘R’ Us’s possible comeback.

“We haven’t met with Toys ‘R’ Us yet — we remain open-minded, but no conversations yet,” Goldner told Yahoo Finance at the company’s annual toy fair presentation. Hasbro and its rival Mattel were hit hard by the disappearance of Toys ‘R’ Us in 2018. (more….)
