OK, let’s get this party started! The reviews are coming soon, but you can check out crisp images of The Black Series Archives wave 1 figures right now in our RDRs. Most importantly, we have comparison pictures for each figure so you can decide which version of the figure looks better. Here is a quick rundown: Luke Skywalker is better, but not perfect. For one reason or another, the photorealistic paint job looks amateur at best, almost as if it’s a trial run. He doesn’t come with a beautiful application like recent figures. Boba Fett is much-improved. They finally updated his chest armor to the correct color. Amen, Hasbro! Bossk is almost identical to his first issue. But it’s nice to see him again. In all honesty, IG-88 is a significant step backward. He’s still feather-light, has too many holes in his head (that don’t need to be carried forward in the action figure), and got a pretty bad paint job this time around. What’s up with all of that gold? The reviews are coming soon, but check out everything else right now.

Jon Favreau Also Wishes You A Merry Christmas!

… and Jon Favreau even has a small present for you!


The world’s most favorite Rolls Royce jet engine part

He posted this photo on his Instagram earlier today, wishing everyone a merry Christmas! Thanks, Jon!

Oh, and in other news, it was rumored before, but now it seems to be all but confirmed that The Mandalorian will feature some very well known bounty hunters! Thanks to JTA regular Darth Rizzen for the alert!

New Forces Of Destiny Episode Featuring Qi'Ra

The latest Forces of Destiny episode was released on Friday already – but maybe has flown somewhat under the radar due to some other Star Wars movie being released on that day. Anyway, check out “Triplecross”, it’s a fun episode featuring Qi’Ra, Hondo and IG-88. The ending is somewhat anticlimactic perhaps, but Hondo is fun as usual! Leave your thoughts in the comments!

Forces of Destiny: Episode 8 "Bounty of Trouble"

The eighth episode of Forces of Destiny was released late last night. The latest installment found Princess Leia and Sabine trying to escape IG-88. Although it was great to see IG-88 show up since he’s an underutilized character, this was probably my least favorite episode so far. Check it out and judge for yourself!
