JTA moderator Sjefke is thrilled to find a $5 Rathtar set at his local Walmart on clearance, but this speaks volume. It speaks volumes how poorly case assortments are treated. How this item was repackaged for Force Link 2.0 is beyond comprehension. A simple visit to any retail establishment would have proven that it was the last set to repackage. Here we are in June 2018, and both Force Link 1.0 and Force Link 2.0 sets are piling up. They might as well start giving these away like Oprah gave away cars on that landmark episode of her show.

Disney Star Wars Movie Statistics

The MPAA report for 2017 was released yesterday. And like each year the report lists some informative statistics about the age of moviegoers, their ethnicity and overall gender share. Disney Star Wars is, among other things, about inclusivity, gender equality and Kathleen Kennedy’s own goal is to bring more girls and women on board the franchise. The MPAA reports since 2015 (when The Force Awakens was released) shed some light on how Lucasfilm’s strategy to win new fan groups has worked. Click through to learn more!

Were Rey's Parents Supposed To Be Special After All?

When The Last Jedi was released one of the questions left unanswered by The Force Awakens was who exactly Rey’s parents were. And Rian Johnson’s movie gave an answer: they were filthy junk traders who sold Rey off for drinking money and they’re buried in a pauper’s grave on Jakku.

Ever since then fans have speculated if that was what JJ Abrams really had in mind when he set up the mystery, or if he had any solution to the mystery at all. Now, actor Simon Pegg was interviewed for a podcast and he shed some light on what JJ Abrams’ plan was. Click through to find out more.

The Vintage Collection Wave 17 Sneak Peek!

The Vintage Collection is BACK baby, and we have a sneak peek of wave 17 for you. That’s right. We said wave 17. Hasbro left this poor collection in the dust with wave 16 in September 2012. After five and a half brutally grueling and long years, collectors can once again have something to call their own. Review pages and some images are rough, but check out Rebel Soldier (Hoth), Supreme Leader Snoke, Rey (Jakku), Kylo Ren and the First Order Stormtrooper. Jyn Erso is coming soon.
