What Do You Want For Force Friday And Beyond?

We’re in somewhat of a lull at the moment. Most figures Hasbro have already finished are still under a Disney embargo and nothing official is known. We do know that on Triple Force Friday we will definitly get figures for The Rise of Skywalker, The Mandalorian and the Fallen Order video game. So let’s talk about what you expect, what you hope for and what you want! Both for TVC and TBS! And let’s speculate also if there will be any (Force Link) 3.75 in 5 POA figures at all, because so far there are exactly zero rumors about the latter. So click through for a discussion!

Even if she had only 10 seconds of screentime, I want that figure for TBS! (click for much larger version)

What Do You Want For The Mandalorian Toyline?

The Mandalorian will debut its first episode in November on Disney+. Hasbro most certainly has a number of figures for the show in development or production even. Time to talk about what you want from Hasbro for the Mandalorian – both TVC and Black Series! Do you think we will get a dedicated wave or two for The Mandalorian? Or just a couple of figures here and there? My hope is that the Mandalorian won’t just be a huge hit for Disney+, but that Hasbro will give as at least as many figures for the Mandalorian as we get for any of the sequel movies. Figures we do need is the Mandalorian himself, with removable helmet, provided the character will ever remove the helmet on the show, plus Gina Carano’s and Carl Weather’s character, Werner Herzog’s Imperial, Giancarlo Eposito’s character, that droid co-pilot we saw on the Razorcrest, the female Twi’Lek that was glanced, the Incinirator Trooper, a Gonk droid (for 6 inch at least) and at least one or the other background alien would be nice.
With Episode IX on the horizon I think that the last quarter of 2019 will be focused on that, but maybe in the first half of 2020 we will get some great Mandalorian toys? Or will we just get the occasional figure here and there, similar to Rebels which has not received a single TVC figure yet and only most of the main crew in the Black Series? That would be somewhat of a disappointment, in my opinion. I think Hasbro should do more for the first live action Star Wars series. So what do you think?

All of the videos shown during the Mandalorian Panel at Star Wars Celebration have finally made it to YouTube in somewhat good quality. This is your chance to watch the two behind the scenes reels shown during the panel, the exclusive Mandalorian trailer and also the exclusive 5 minute preview of the pilot episode directed by Dave Filoni! Effects work  for some of the footage has not been finished yet apparently, but this will give you a good idea of what to expect. In my opinion The Mandalorian is absolutely on the right track, the look and feel of this show should make almost all fans very happy.

A First Look At The Mandalorian!

The Mandalorian panel just closed a few minutes ago. Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni talked about the show and revealed a few details. Also on the panel were the three main characters Pedro Pascal, Gina Carano and Carl Weathers. And while not very much was revealed, almost nothing about the actual story, we did learn a few things! A sizzle reel was also shown, however, the YouTube stream faded to back when the footage was shown. But several Bothan spies were able to smuggle out the footage and we will show you some screenshots of the revealed footage! So click through for a look at The Mandalorian!

R5-D4 Is In The Mandalorian?

Jon Favreau loves to tease… and this time he posted a photo of an R5 unit from The Mandalorian on his Instagram!
I wonder if this could be R5-D4? Only with a functioning motivator this time? I compared the photo with my Bandai model kit of R5 and even with how R5 appeared in the movie and the color scheme seems to be identical, however this R5 unit appears to show some more wear and tear than the R5 we meet in A New Hope. But it’s many years later, so who knows what he went through. Maybe some droid experts out there can shed some more light on it. Anyway, it’s photos like these that build up anticipation for the show!

Nick Nolte Joins The Mandalorian!

The Hollywood Reporter has an exclusive report about Nick Nolte joining The Mandalorian. Nothing is known about his role on the show. Pedro Pascal is the lead character, Gina Carano (you saw her in the first Deadpool movie) was announced a short while ago and  Carl Weathers was apparently hired as well. Nothing is known yet about plot or who exactly the actors will be portraying. I suppose we will have to wait a few more months before we get more details. The Mandalorian is projected for a late 2019 release on the Disney+ streaming channel.

Pedro Pascal Will Play The Mandalorian

Is has been rumored for quite a while, but apparently things are getting more official now. According to Variety the lead role in the upcoming Disney+ streaming show The Mandalorian has been offered to Pedro Pascal, who you may know from such things as Game of Thrones, Kingsmen 2 or Narcos. Negotiations are underway, but if nothing unforeseen happens you can expect Pedro Pascal to be The Mandalorian sometime in 2019. Shooting is underway for The Mandalorian, however only scenes without the lead actor were filmed, according to Entertainment Weekly. Carl Weathers was cast as a supporting character a few days ago. Other than that the cast is still mostly a mystery. More details will certainly follow in time.

I Have A Good Feeling About This

Jon Favreau updated his Instagram account with some new photos a few hours ago and  look who came to visit for his birthday! It’s good to see that George is still around, at least visiting. Who knows, maybe he even gave Jon the one or the other piece of advice about Star Wars. No matter what he did, it’s nice to see the two of them together. Another photo shows the two with Dave Filoni who will, as you all know, direct the first episode of The Mandalorian. The show can’t come soon enough!

Check Out The Mandalorian's Rifle!

Over the weekend Jon Favreau posted a picture of the rifle the Mandalorian will use in the show on Instagram. And it seems it’s a clear reference to the rifle Boba Fett used in The Holiday Special cartoon segment. And who knows, maybe it even is Boba Fett’s rifle, unless this design is more generic. The action figure that comes with that gun can’t be revealed soon enough!

Meet "The Mandalorian"!

The official Star Wars site published a very first look at the main character of the upcoming show “The Mandalorian” by Jon Favreau, which will have its premiere sometime in 2019. Dave Filoni will direct the first episode, while other episodes will be directed by Bryce Dallas Howard (you know her from Jurassic World), Deborah Chow (Jessica Jones), Rick Famuyiwa (Dope) and Taika Waititi (Thor 3). The show will be written by Jon Favreau.
What do you think about the look of the character? In my opinion it’s classic Mandalorian armor but different enough from Boba Fett’s version. Pedro Pascal is rumored to be the main character of the show. And one thing is clear: we need an action figure of “The Mandalorian” in all possible scales and lines!
