We all saw the final trailer for The Rise of Skywalker last night. It was extremely light on story, to the point that it didn’t give away anything at all, but instead was filled with beautiful, sometimes breathtaking imagery and epic scenes. But the trailer also confirms basically everything that was reported in leaks weeks ago. Which begs the question if the rest of the leaks, the leaks about story and plot are also true. So let’s have a final discussion about The Rise of Skywalker spoilers!

Absolutely stay away from this article if you don’t want to read potential spoilers! If you want to discuss spoilers, then please click through! There’s much to discuss!

Vintage Collection VC150 Yavin Leia Found At Target

There was some initial confusion about the numbering for the new Vintage Collection Princess Leia Organa (Yavin) figure. While Hasbro had announced at NYCC that Leia would replace the cancelled Darth Revan figure and be VC150, the first batches of the figure showed her with a VC164 numbering. Now Anthony S. has come across a VC150 Leia at his local Target, so Hasbro did know what they were talking about after all. Will you get both the VC164 and VC150 version? Thanks to Anthony for the alert and photo!

Yikes! Either the packaging is warping these figures’ legs, or the tooling is beginning to breakdown at the factory. Regardless, Hasbro needs to employ some better quality control on some of The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ figures. JTA reader Darth Cannabis.sends us an image that should send shivers down your spine. Hopefully, this won’t become a chronic issue. And I hope hot water helps get these figures back in a shapely form.

Wow! I just noticed that The Vintage Collection Lando Calrissian (Skiff Guard) figure is out of stock. And it’s already going for a premium on eBay. Also, around me, the stores that received this figure are out of stock. Have you secured your copy of the figure yet? It will be interesting to see if Walmart orders more.

Watch Highlights From The Mandalorian Press Conference

27 minutes of footage from The Mandalorian was shown to the press on Saturday and first reactions are very positive. After the screening a press conference was held, highlights of which you can watch on YouTube.

On the panel are Jon Favreau, Dave Filoni, Pedro Pascal, Gina Carano and Carl Weathers. They talk about what their approach to the show was, in addition to that Dave Filoni talks about the differences between working on animation and live action. It is revealed that Favreau and Filoni worked on the plots together, brainstorming ideas, with Favreau then writing the script.

You also learn that while directors on TV usually don’t have all that much creative freedom, they approached each episode of the Mandalorian more like a movie, where a director has a lot more input. Overall, you get the feeling that the Mandalorian is in very good and capable hands. Jon Favreau speaks specifically about how they want to reward fans that have been with the franchise for a long time, since they were kids, and to bring everyone together, you can expect some Easter Eggs, references to both legends and canon, one of these things that will get referenced is actually Lifeday, as Favreau seems to have a weak spot for the Holiday Special. But watch for yourself! The video is about 21 minutes long, just click on the image below to start the video.
