Comic Review: Annual - Poe Dameron (2017) - Issue 1

There are apparently a lot of Poe Dameron fans out there and LucasFilm and Marvel felt there was enough there to warrant his own comic series. The series may have a lot of readers, but it isn’t one of my favorites and this one-off Annual didn’t make it much better. That being said, this issue did add a bit of depth to the character we see on screen in The Force Awakens. Check out what I thought about this Annual issue and be sure to check out the other comic Research Droids Reviews. While you’re there, be sure to share your thoughts in the comments. If there is a series you think I should review, be sure to drop me a line and let me know!

Talk About A Sweet Deal!

It may not be what you expected, but hey it could be a great gift for that Star Wars fan in your life. Heck, my Mother was so excited about it that she e-mailed me it! Plus, 75% off of some Darth Vader chocolate is always a good thing and that awesome Darth Maul&M dispenser is pretty sweet (get it?). Am I right?

Seems as though Colin Trevorrow followed in Rian Johnson’s footsteps and asked for a small favor of the current Star Wars director. Just as Rian Johnson asked J.J. Abrams to have R2-D2 go with Rey to Ach-To and leave BB-8 behind, Colin Trevorrow asked Johnson for a similar favor. Click through to find out more.

The Modern Garage Sale

Like many of you, I remember scouring garage sales for Star Wars figures that parents were selling for .25 cents or 5 for a buck. It seems like with all the technology at your finger tips, the days of finding that gem cheap is over (or at least more difficult). Well, I had this app on my phone for quite awhile and I mostly used it to sell some old clothes and things, but recently I find out it can be a treasure trove for Star Wars collectors. Click through to find out more.

Charles Soule Discusses His New Darth Vader Series

Recently, I shared my review on the new Marvel Darth Vader comic which is written by Charles Soule. I thought it was a fantastic start to a new series that explores an area of Darth Vader we have yet to see and are eager to see; his first steps as the mechanical, maniacal apprentice of Emperor Palpatine. In a recent interview with Marvel.com, Charles shared his thoughts on the Emperor, Darth Vader, and where this comic series is going.

Target Exclusive Darth Vader In TIE Fighter Pop!

JTA reader Ken reports that Targets in AZ are starting to receive these exclusive Pops!. Each Target received only 4 so these may be scarce for awhile. They’ll probably be making their way around the rest of the US this weekend, so be on the lookout because you’ll never know what you’ll find. I stumbled across a Rey with speeder Pop! at Walmart the other day. Ken was also kind enough to provide the DCPI 323-01-0569. Good luck!

Baze And Chirrut Making An Appearance?

The Baze and Chirrut TBS 6″ figures may arguably be some of the most difficult to find. The fact that they were single packed in a case with 4 carry overs did NOT make it easy for people to find them. Heck, I STILL haven’t seen them in a store and I only have them because I got lucky on Amazon early on. Good news may be on the horizon for those still searching for these retired Guardians of the Whills. JTA reader Anthony reports that his Entertainment Earth April pre-orders are due to ship out Monday. Hopefully that means more solid cases are making the rounds. Might be time to get your orders in from EE!

A Jedi Walked Into A Target...

….and saw himself on sale for less than 5 bucks! I’m not good at telling jokes, so thankfully this isn’t one. How would you like to pay under $5 for some great The Black Series 6″ figures? Well, JTA reader JediRebel77 shares with us quite a find at a local Target store. Even though we all love to find a deal, Target REALLY needs to make some changes to the way they handle inventory for Star Wars figures. Click through to see what kind of deals we’re seeing.
