Entertainment Weekly’s Star Wars issue is finally here and we’ve been given a look at eight new images as well as an article with bits of information from JJ and most of the cast of The Rise of Skywalker. Not much new information is revealed and it’s a safe read for those avoiding spoilery info, but it does finally shut down the question of which Death Star they’re on for good (despite the first Death Star wreckage being utilized by the people of Alderaan to build an artificial home of sorts some refused to accept it was the DSII). We also got a look at the three new covers for EW which span the three trilogies. Be sure to check out the images and the article!

There are 2 playsets that would be incredible additions to The Vintage Collection. One needs to be the Razorcrest, that much is clear, but the second might not be so obvious. I’ve taken some screenshots (not photos from my phone this time, yay!), and drew up a couple ideas for how these playsets could be brought to fruition. Click here to take a look!

Today is the 41st anniversary of The Star Wars Holiday Special, one of the most challenging Star Wars things to get through in one watch, yet still has some charm, like the Boba Fett animated short. Happy Life Day to all!

All that glitters is not gold, and these Star Wars collectibles are NOT worth their weight in gold. Tune in tomorrow as we give you a gold mine of information. You’ll be as good as gold as we look at them together. You’ll feel like the goose that laid the golden egg once you’re through reading. But it may not feel like you’re listening to the golden oldies. In fact, you may want to watch the Golden Girls instead. Then again, you may believe silence is golden if that was your only option. Either way, tune in tomorrow! This isn’t your parents’ Golden Age of collecting, that’s for dang sure.

Wow. Hasbro DESTROYED the aesthetics of the classic Kenner card back with the Amazon exclusive “Armory Pack” Sith Trooper. They also broke format in the numbering system by giving this figure the designation of VC162A. Thank goodness the figure is awesome! See everything in our Research Droids Reviews today!

Now that we’re a significant amount of weeks out from Triple Force Friday, we’re curious to know what you’re finding at retail now. For me, I am only finding exclusives (and with relative ease). But as far as general marketplace items, like the first couple of waves of The Vintage Collection and The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ lines, I am finding almost nothing. There has been sell-through, but I don’t think any of my local stores have restocked. Let us know what you’re finding in your neck of the woods!

Review: Purge Stormtrooper - TBS6 [P3] - GameStop Exclusive

It feels like circa 2007-2008 again with The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ Purge Stormtrooper, a new character from the Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order video game. It’s a GameStop exclusive that’s a bit hard to acquire at the moment (but will be easy to find in the near future). See this cool character in our Research Droids Reviews today!

The second Mandalorian episode was released earlier today! And it’s another winner. I cannot tell you anything really about this episode because a certain spoilery something is very much involved with the plot. The basic plot is simple, the Mandalorian found his target in Chapter 1 and wants to get back to his ship now. On his way back he is attacked by rival bounty hunters who want to kill his bounty, the Mandalorian expertly disposes of them, only to find that when he returns to his ship pesky Offworld Jawas have dismantled it… now he needs the parts back. But the Jawas want something in return… and the fun begins. This episode will be talked about for days and days and possibly even longer. I can tell you that!

Also, let me just tell you that whoever can subscribe to Disney+ and is remotely interested in Star Wars should subscribe now. $6.99, even if the only thing you’ll ever watch is The Mandalorian, is still just $0.88 per episode, and I bet you will rewatch the episodes a lot. It’s a bargain.

This show is a winner. It’s what the vast majority of Star Wars fans have hoped for, it’s what they want and what they need. It will make you happy. You will smile. You will be surprised. The show also expands the Star Wars mythos in a very fundamental way. So don’t wait, don’t hesitate, watch the episode now!  Just one caveat, the second episode is just 31 minutes long. We need more. Now! But we will have to wait until next Friday!

Anyone else who has already seen the episode – or if you enjoy spoilers – can click on the banner below or click through to read my spoiler review of the second episode!

SPOILER WARNING: YOU WILL BE THOROUGHLY SPOILED IF YOU READ THE REVIEW!

The Purge Stormtrooper from the Star Wars: Fallen Jedi Order video game (and other sources) was the most difficult 6″ figure for me to acquire this year, but I finally have one. It’s such a great figure, that I thought I’d get a sneak peek gallery up before tomorrow’s review. Now that we have an Airborne Trooper head sculpt, I hope that Hasbro works on an Airborne Trooper 6″ figure from Episode III. I’m surprised we don’t have that character or the Galactic Marine yet. A mix of mostly old and a little bit new, the Purge Stormtrooper borrows from the past while keeping things fresh for the new era of Star Wars. Check out the gallery now.!

Are YouTube Trailer Views Predicting Box Office Success?

The Hollywood Reporter has released an interesting article about the correlation between YouTube trailer views and box office success on opening weekend. Independent tracking website “Box Office Reports” analyzed data for 421 movies released in the US since 2017 and the Hollywood Reporter looks at the findings in the article.
And according to the findings YouTube trailer views are a good, but not perfect gauge for box office success on opening weekend. The correlation between the trailer views and opening weekend box office is 0.86, which means there is a significant positive correlation between YouTube trailer views and box office (with 0 meaning there is no correlation at all and 1 meaning it’s a perfect positive correlation, 0.86 is a very high correlation). Now the interesting question is: what does that mean for Rise of Skywalker? Trailer views for the movie are rather low. Click through for more!
