Today not only saw the debut of Disney+ in North America and a few selected other countries, today also saw the release of the highly anticipated first ever Star Wars live action series: The Mandalorian. I wrote a very spoilery review which you can read by clicking on the banner below. But maybe a few of you don’t want to read a spoiler review and for you I have a few general thoughts: go watch the show! It’s the best thing in a long time, it’s like A New Hope, Rogue One and Solo, it’s your Boba Fett daydream come true, even if the character is not Boba Fett. This series is extremely well made, has a very, very, very interesting premise, and that final scene will be talked about for days and maybe even weeks. This show was made for longtime fans. Everyone can certainly enjoy it, but longtime fans will certainly love every second. So what are you waiting for? If you haven’t watched the episode yet, do it now. And if you have seen it and want to discuss it, then please read my review!

Welcome To The World Of 4K Star Wars!

That’s right! After all the rumors of 4k versions of the entire saga coming for quite some time now, Disney+ shows up and says “SURPRISE!” The entire Star Wars saga (minus Solo and The Last Jedi which are licensed out currently) are available in 4k and also apparently with Dolby Atmos. I know where I’ll be for the next 24 hours, how about you? Now, we can only hold out hope that when they come to Blu-Ray we get our fabled theatrical releases as well. You can sign up for a free trial and see the first two episodes of The Mandalorian if you are still on the fence. 

You can sign up for a free trial of Disney+ right here!

P.S. Despite being scheduled for a 9 am EST release, The Mandalorian is live and we’ll have reviews coming!

New Black Series Figures Have Leaked?

Four new drawings by Black Series artist Gregory Titus have appeared on Facebook earlier tonight. They show Crait Luke, Zeb, Jar Jar and a clone that might by Commander Bly. Now all of four of these figures were heavily rumored before, Zeb was virtually confirmed by Hasbro, and Crait Luke is all but guaranteed, two more prequel characters would make sense with The Clone Wars returning for a final season and Hasbro revealed quite a few prequel characters only recently. But Titus also created some art for Hammerhead who hasn’t seen a release yet, so apply the usual grains of salt. But my feeling is that we will get all four of these figures in 2020. Thanks to Matthew Cohen for the alert!

Vintage Kenner RDRs Redux: The Emperor - ROTJ - 1984

Here’s the review! It’s a crying shame where The Vintage Collection is at today. The Special Action Figure Set (Cave Of Evil) isn’t the worst thing Hasbro’s done, but it’s like the manifestation of salt in the wound. See the sixteen-image reenactment of Luke’s Jedi training on Dagobah using the vintage Kenner Dagobah playset in our Photo Gallery! Find out more in our Research Droids Reviews today!

Does The Black Series Need Instruction Leaflets?

People who collect Black Series figures probably encountered the following issue at least once… now how do I put together that accessory or where and how do I store it on the figure? Latest example is Cara Dune, it seems quite a few collectors were puzzled about where to put Cara’s knife. There is a small hole in her left boot into which you can sheathe it.
Maybe this is something that never bothers you, because you figure these things out right away. But maybe you are someone who sometimes misses these details. Is it obvious that Kylo Ren’s hood down piece can be removed so that you can put the hood up option on his head? Will all collectors find out on their own that you can remove C-3PO’s back of the head for Babu Frik to hack him? So the question is: do some figures need leaflets? Click through for a short discussion!

Now where to put the knife…
