While sitting here waiting for my flight to leave LA I thought this would be a perfect time to detox and wrap up the main portion of our coverage! First off a big thanks to Paul for working the homefront and getting the galleries up and posted! While I had my boots on the ground he was pushing pictures through as fast as possible! (more...)
Also, please take a moment to visit and thank our sponsor Brian's Toys! Without their help we would not have been able to cover as much as we did. Their sponsorship of our coverage was a huge help!

We held off until the very end of SWCA to bring you this unique first look gallery of many of the card backs (the reverse sides of course) of The Black Series figures (both scales) as well as a "not behind glass" closer inspection of the newly revealed 6" Ahsoka Tano. As far as TBS packaging is concerned, you'll notice that bios (and images from the 3.75" scale) are being removed in favor of multilingual basic text and warnings (what a shame) even in the collector line. Anyway, check out the new images. We don't think you will find them anywhere else on the web, but hey, stranger things have happened. Click through for more!

Click through for information on several Celebration Anaheim art prints by Joe Corroney and Brian Miller. They asked that we help spread the word since there is no coordinated promotion through Lucasfilm this year.
The preorder period ends April 10th but the artwork will also still be available from our booth (#1111), “The Star Wars Art of Joe Corroney and Brian Miller” at the event. If you are going to the event feel free to stop by and say hello, we'd both enjoy meeting you.

We're now mere hours away from what we have been waiting for since Toy Fair in February. Will all of the rumors turn out to be true and be revealed? Are we all going to mess our pants? Will it be the turnaround of the century for Hasbro? That's what we were promised at least at Toys Fair and we're praying all holds true. The hobby needs a swift kick in the rear. Let this be it. JTA will be posting moment by moment news reveals as they become available. Make sure you're both HERE on our front page as well as on Jedi Temple Archives' Facebook page for the latest up to the second updates. Remember! The fun starts tomorrow (July 25th) 12 PM noon (PDT) which also means 3 PM for (EDT) readers. Please make sure you're hanging with us.
