Wow. My mind often wanders about entirely random things. That’s a given. One minute I might be googling if giraffe meat is edible for humans, and then the next moment I might Googling why herbs de Provence is the perfect spice for chicken. I could not stop my brain if I tried from going off on these tangents. I believe all of this stems from my innate curiosity about life in general. Most recently, while doing some work around the house, the fact how significantly prices have changed since The Vintage Collection’s first run in 2010, versus what’s happening with it today, rushed my mind. Then I thought of this….

What $49.99 got you in 2010

What $49.99 gets you in 2018

The amount of “old” product piling up on Hasbro Toy Shop’s eBay store is astounding. And the brand new stuff is already on their page (albeit at full price). And all of the “hot products” are nowhere to be found. How many of these sitting items do you think we will packed in future case assortments too? Sigh.

Keri Russell Reportedly Joins Episode IX Cast

According to a report from Variety, Keri Russell  (The Americans, Felicity, Waitress) is in early talks to join Star Wars: Episode IX.  After meeting with several actresses for the role, which requires “action-heavy fight scenes”, Episode IX director JJ Abrams and Lucasfilm  agreed that Russell was the right choice. Abrams and Russell previously worked together on Felicity and Mission Impossible III. Abrams plans to cast two more actors before production on Episode IX begins at the end of the month. Keri Russell is certainly a very talented actress and a welcome addition to Star Wars. Head over to Variety for the full report!

It’s the first all-new vehicle of the new TVC era! Check out our advanced sneak peek of the brand-spanking-new Imperial Combat Assault Tank from The Vintage Collection. Hasbro hit this vehicle out of the park. The amount of distinctive tooling Hasbro gave this vehicle is nothing short of impressive. The final paint operations are excellent, although we feel they could have been bettered in a few areas. The only negative is that we don’t have Turbo Tank pilots to outfit the vehicle yet. The Imperial Combat Assault Tank has real rubber tread that functions. The interior cockpit is astounding. And the extras here are so beautiful; you’re going to be overwhelmed. We’re especially taken with the Kyber crystal containers and cases. There is a ton of Aurebesh to translate on this vehicle, so have fun figuring it out! Yes, the price is steep, but this is a robust and weighty vehicle LOADED with detail. Our full photo gallery is complete, and the write up is coming in just a couple of days. In the meantime, please enjoy the gallery and other things like Collector Notes! Click HERE to check it out.

Photo Of Star Wars: Resistance Characters Leaks!

A very blurry and very low quality photo of the Star Wars: Resistance characters has leaked. Actually, the version you can see below has already been enhanced. The photo was shown during a presentation and someone was able to take a picture. Anyway, even though it’s blurry you can still see the cast of the show. It seems Phasma will be the main villain? And perhaps the Stormtrooper in all red could be Captain Cardinal from the Phasma novel? What do you think? Leave your thoughts in the comments!

It has been officially confirmed by Hasbro that we will see three (3) waves of The Vintage Collection in 2018 and this has excited some collectors. But for me, I think it would take something drastic like an announcement that Emperor Palpatine and Sim Aloo are also coming some time in 2019. How about you? Would you need to see more classic Kenner redos to get you more in the mood?

Hello, What Have We Here?

The Saskatchewan Entertainment Expo made the most curious announcement on their Facebook page. Billy Dee Williams was supposed to be a guest this year. But his appearance has been canceled due to a “film schedule conflict”. Hmmmm. What can that possibly mean?

Check out the Facebook page with the announcement.

And then discuss whether or not you’re excited for Lando in Episode IX! Will he kamikaze the Falcon with Nien Nunb and Chewbacca as his co-pilots and 3PO and R2 in the back into Starkiller Base 2.0 or will he do what any sensible person would do, and put Kylo Ren across his knee for being a very naughty boy and killing Han for the entire duration of the movie?

Yahoo Finance Asks If Star Wars Is Imploding

Until now most media outlets put a more or less positive spin on the recent developments in the Star Wars Universe and at Lucasfilm. It was mostly the alternative media, and here especially several YouTube channels, that heavily criticized Lucasfilm for Solo’s failure at the box office and for making a – according to them – divisive movie with The Last Jedi. But now Yahoo Finance posted an article that asks the ultimate question: whether or not the Star Wars Universe is imploding. Click through for more details!
