Galaxy Of Adventures Rewrites Star Wars History

Today I would like to talk about the latest Galaxy Of Adventures short that features Leia. So far, the shorts used audio snippets from the original trilogy movies and more or less faithfully recreated the scenes from the movie using animation. For the latest Leia episode Lucasfilm did something different though, and I feel we should discuss it and what it means for both official canon and the overall franchise going forward. Click through for more details!

Solo Toy Line Featured In The Simpsons Last Night

Last night, Hasbro’s Solo: A Star Wars Story line was featured on the Simpsons very briefly. While competing in a “toy store shopping spree” contest, Bart and Mulhouse crash and lose while trying to avoid the Solo toys (and Ralph wins). You have to wonder there if there is some intentional subliminal statement somewhere in this very brief scene about the state of Star Wars and collecting. I wouldn’t put it past Matt Groening. He’s a brilliant man. Special thanks to JTA reader Aldo for the alert and image.

New Wave Of Galaxy Of Adventures Figures Revealed!

The official Star Wars website revealed a brand new wave of Galaxy of Adventures figures!
The wave includes Rey, Kylo Ren, Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ep III), Darth Maul, General Grievous and Boba Fett. Each figure comes with a comic book. Also, each figure is a repack. It should be noted that the tube art and comic for Rey are for Jakku Rey in The Force Awakens, but for some strange reason Hasbro decided to put a The Last Jedi Rey in the tube.

J.J. Abrams Sure Loves His Secrets

Keeping Star Wars movie titles secret has a long tradition. But the master of keeping things close to his vest is maybe J.J. Abrams, who doesn’t want to spoil anything before the release of a movie. He sometimes resorts to outright lying even when asked about potential spoilers. He did deny until the last minute that Khan would make an appearance in Star Trek Into Darkness, for example. Though he regretted that misdirection later and said it was wrong. Anyway, Star Wars fans ask themselves when we’ll get the Episode IX title reveal. And if there already is a title one thing is sure: not even some of the more important – or at least visible – members at Lucasfilm know about it, as this tweet by Pablo Hidalgo proves:

Pablo Hidalgo Episode IX title tweet

Expect no early title leaks for Episode IX, not in the source code of the Star Wars website or from some actor or member of Lucasfilm accidentally spilling the beans. We’ll know the title in time. Until then… patience!

The Vintage Collection Smokescreen

If you would have asked me whether the return of The Vintage Collection would be the most exciting event of our lifetimes as collectors after Hasbro’s “Is Paul Harrison still conscious” Star Wars Celebration Orlando presentation announcing it was coming back, I would have told you that it was. And almost two full years of getting one repack announcement after another, I could honestly say to you that although I was disappointed, I still kept the faith. (more….)
