Anakin Skywalker (Padawan) - The Black Series

A short while ago it was announced that Disney would bring the 4K version of The Empire Strikes Back, which is available on Disney+ and Blu-Ray, to cinemas in the UK and elsewhere. However, now Variety reports that apparently talks with exhibitors broke down and the 4K version will not be shown in theaters after all. Instead a standard 2K version will be screened. No reason was given why the talks broke down or why exactly the 4K version will not be shown.
The next question is if all that many people would actually be eager to watch an old movie they have seen countless times before in a theater with other moviegoers. Cinemas across the world are waiting for the first new big release in months: Christopher Nolan’s Tenet, scheduled for an August 12th release date. Unless the movie gets delayed for a third time. Anyway, for Star Wars Fans it means that you can only watch the 4K version of The Empire Strikes back in the comfort of your home.
But do you think about going to the movies again at all? Or ist that not an option for you at the moment?

We have it all for you to see in our 52-image gallery; comparison pictures and all! Check it out! (more….)

Each bust will be made in the U.S.A. and hand detailed by the FX artists in their New York studio. Product pages and galleries will be live in one week and both editions will be available to order on July 13th starting at 12pm EST.

If you rewind your mind 16 years, the first wave of The Original Trilogy Collection “vintage-styled” action figures began showing up and brick and mortar right around this time. It blows my mind that sixteen years later, we STILL don’t have any of the first four figures from the line launch updated in The Vintage Collection yet. Hopefully, with Hasbro’s new directive of completing the “Kenner 96,” these four figures including Luke Skywalker Princess Leia Organa, Han Solo, and Ben (Obi-Wan) Kenobi should be the focus of Hasbro’s concentration. Could you imagine if they revealed all four of these on a Fan First Friday? The 3.75″ super-articulated collecting community might go a full year without complaining. Hasbro, these are LONG overdue. Please get them updated!

There appears to be some production issue on the 40th Anniversary The Empire Strikes Back Artoo-Detoo (R2-D2) (Dagobah) action figure in the ASSORTMENT CASE. While the figure has no issues, we’ve learned that the packaging for units in the case assortments getting filled now all sustained some sort of damage. And they’re all like that and shipping as we speak. And we also understand that Hasbro doesn’t have replacements for them either. So, if you’re expecting a mint-on-card specimen, it may take some time to secure one, or until solid case packs are released in substantial numbers to serve as replacements. We DO NOT KNOW if the solid case pack units are affected by this damage as well. (But that seems to be the easiest remedy if Hasbro chooses this route to fix things.) We’re learning more about this in real-time, so stay tuned for any updates or clarifications to this story. We do know wholesalers are receiving credits for the damaged packaging. You can look all over the web, and this figure is out of stock almost everywhere.

UPDATE: Now Entertainment Earth is sending out emails about this situation!
