I have an exclusive sneak peek of wave 17 (wave 28) of The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ line! Han Solo (Bespin) is about what we all expected. He looks great, but there is nothing extraordinary about him. Samples will vary from one another, so be sure to find one with good eyes. Our sample looks good, but we think he could look a tad better. He is loaded with articulation and favors Harrison Ford very much. The Rebel Trooper is awesome, but some things about him bug us. Firstly, I don’t like the name. This character is a Rebel Fleet Trooper. Also, this sculpt is unequivocally Lieutenant Pello Scrambas, so you can’t army build this guy. (Hasbro – please make alternate head sculpts for this body!) Collectors will be thrilled to know that Hasbro added “butterfly” joints to the shoulders which make it possible for him to cross his arms and reach his arms behind his back. Also, I plead ignorance. I don’t know if he comes with the “Death Star plans” or some type of “communicator.” I am especially partial to Tobias Beckett. It looks just like Woody Harrelson, and the detail is fantastic. His costume is perfection and it’s one of the greatest figures based on Solo: A Star Wars Story Hasbro has produced to date. Check out these three new figures in our Research Droids Reviews RIGHT NOW! Full reviews are coming soon!!

We have a special sneak peek first look for you of the Star Wars [Solo] Two-Packs wave 2 sets. The Chewbacca (Mimban)/Han Solo (Mimban) set is more delightful than expected. Both Chewy and Han are filthy just like when they met each other for the first time in the prison pit. The detailing and sculpting have exceeded expectations, all the while covered in mud. The chains are removable, and Chewy comes with an impressive three-piece cannon. The Rebolt/Corellian Hound set is equally intriguing. Hasbro has crafted a beautiful cage for the Corellian Hound with functioning parts and delicate detailing. The Corellian Hound itself comes with excellent articulation including a hinge-jointed jaw. Rebolt is a bit puzzling, but a nice figure nonetheless. He looks part Lobot and Cloud Car Pilot with the regal look and feel of someone on Coruscant.

Yahoo! News has posted an article where they quote Ron Howard as saying he feels bad that Solo: A Star Wars Story is losing money and underperforming at the box office.
“I’m proud of #SoloAStarWarsStory and the cast & crew worked hard to give fans a fun new addition,” he tweeted in response to a fan theorizing that backlash to “The Last Jedi” is partially to blame. “As a director I feel badly when people who I believe (& exit polls show) will very likely enjoy a movie… don’t see it on a big screen w/great sound.” READ MORE HERE.

Variety reports that box office forecasts for Solo are grim. The movie is projected to make as little as $29 million in North America this weekend. This would be a 66% drop from the opening weekend. And if that trend continues Solo may end up making less than $200 million domestic. The situation abroad is very similar with Solo even struggling in some markets to keep ahead of Deadpool 2. Disney and Lucasfilm now have the first veritable Star Wars box office bomb on their hands.
UPDATE: Box Office Mojo just posted the weekend estimates. Solo will make $29.2 million, only $6 million more than Deadpool 2.
