What We Learned About Project Luminous and the High Republic

So there was an “event” of sorts with a bunch of the authors involved in Project Luminous tonight and with very little fanfare. StarWars.com has shared some of the details regarding the High Republic and the new books. There is also a little video that pretty much sums up what it’s all about so take a look. But very quickly and to the point, the Jedi of this period are “like the knights of the round table” and the threat is coming from the borders of the republic with the main threat known as the Nihil (pronounced Nile) who are like space Vikings. What do the Jedi fear most? Losing the light! To see the video, some concept art, and a few new book covers be sure to click through!

Welcome to the High Republic!

As we wait for the first official news of Project Luminous tonight (supposedly), we got our first look at where we will be heading. Charles Soule, writer of many of the best modern Star Wars comics, will deliver his first full Star Wars novel The High Republic: Light of the Jedi. There are also some other as-of-yet untitled Project Luminous titles listed on the Random House site, but this cover has gotten me pretty excited. Hopefully, this announcement will give us some amazing new content to look forward to. As a fan of the comics and novels, I’m personally excited to read a Charles Soule novel about a completely new era in Star Wars history, but I am also anxious to see where this goes in film/tv. Are you looking forward to moving outside of the Skywalker Saga? Let us know!

Hey Hasbro! Your art department has some work to do on the upcoming The ViIntage Collection Luke Skywalker (Jedi Knight) figure. (Thank you for releasing this long-awaited figure by the way.) While we received this card art on the first edition Luke Skywalker (Endor Capture) figure from 2010, it’s nice to see everything corrected and in place for this ultimate release. However, there is ONE major error we’re hoping you can fix to help authenticate the original vintage Kenner release from 1983. To our readers, by comparing the thumbnail images below, can you see what differs between the two of them? If not, click through for the answer!

I just came across the cover for this children’s book by author Jeffrey Brown! It was released in August 2019 and you can get it on Amazon (it has a 5 star rating!). Something about the cover makes me laugh… so I wanted to share it with you.

I wonder what the intended message is…. at least everyone seems to be happy! But is it fair that Poe seems to carry most of the weight?

Brian Goldner Talks About Star Wars In Earnings Call

Last Friday Hasbro presented their Q4 and full year 2019 numbers. Previously, I showed you several detailed charts. But since almost nothing can be deduced about the performance of Star Wars it makes little sense to dwell on the numbers all that much. So I will only briefly touch upon the numbers in the article and include two charts! More interesting are the statements by Hasbro, and here mainly by Brian Goldner, made in the earnings conference call with analysts. So what does Hasbro has to say about Star Wars? Click through to find out!

While NY Toy Fair was gut-wrenching and devastating to most, the announcement of the Lars homestead EG-6 Power Droid was such incredible news for me. I was so excited it was confirmed (it’s been hinted by my sources for over a year and a half now), that I didn’t care that Hasbro phoned it in for the rest of The Vintage Collection reveals. We’ve posted nearly half a dozen front-page articles whining and moaning how Hasbro has NEVER updated the vintage Kenner Power Droid figure in the modern line. It only took them years, but I could not be happier that the modern definitive modern update to the vintage Kenner Power Droid is finally here. (Be prepared for more whining and moaning for the few others yet to be made too in the near future.) (more….)

You’d think that after 25 years of owning the license rights to the Star Wars toy line that Hasbro would know characters like the Imperial Stormtroopers and Boba Fett need to be produced at extremely higher numbers than say, oh Lando Calrissian and Han Solo (Hoth). Hasbro/Walmart – the Retro Collection Boba Fett sold out in moments and everyone is mad and frustrated that we’re going through this once again. Please get Boba Fett solid case assortments made, and get this highly-requested and wanted action figure in stock again ASAP! This isn’t an issue with limiting quantities. Everyone should be able to order as many as he or she wants.
