We have a sneak peek for you on the next wave of The Vintage Collection. Check out Cara Dune (VC164), The Mandalorian (VC166) and the Remnant Stormtrooper (VC165). This is one solid wave, and one of Hasbro’s finest in a VERY long time. Cara Dune is excellent. She looks a little bit too much like Mandy Moore, but you probably won’t care. She comes with the dagger, but it’s permanently attached to her boot unfortunately. The Mandalorian is another excellent release. The paint operations look off in a few spots, but again, you need to have a discriminating eye to see the issues. The Remnant Stormtrooper is what it is, and that’s an excellent new version of the Rogue One Imperial Stormtrooper. Hasbro went cheap on the deco on the figure’s posterior. They should have pulled out all the stops and made the figure as filthy as possible. All figures come with 30 points of articulation. Anyway, reviews are coming very shortly, so check out the complete galleries and dioramic shots RIGHT NOW!

Nipping at the heels of our positive article on the Sequel Trilogy, I’d thought I’d share an astounding custom figure of Emperor Palpatine by my respected good friend Josh Makison. I want one of these. Look at this stunning work!

The Deafening Silence Of The Sequel Trilogy

As someone who, in my strong opinion, was justifiably critical of the Sequel Trilogy, I had zero hopes or expectations for The Rise Of Skywalker. ZERO! However, the last thing I ever expected was to like the film. A LOT. Let’s face some basic facts. The Sequel Trilogy went the wrong way for Star Wars. (more….)

Where, Oh Where Has TVC Gone? Oh Where, Oh Where Can It Be?

It’s fantastic some Walmart stores are getting the latest TVC figures. But it’s been over a month now, and TARGET hasn’t received a blessed restock of TVC figures in about eight of the ten TARGET stores in my area. What DOES arrive in stores and sit are the latest The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ figures. The same figures haven’t been touched by 6″ collectors. Why? Online? What’s the excuse? Hasbro: Stores, well, the ones that decided to still carry TVC mind you, are SCREAMING for more figures. Why is it so difficult to fill the pegs? For the record, in the Star Wars aisle at this particular TARGET in Princeton NJ there are seven TVC Snokes rotting. (The image below shows the end cap.)

The Black Series Zorii Bliss Figure Has A Removable Visor!

Hasbro Pulse revealed on Facebook that the upcoming Black Series Zorii Bliss action figure comes with a special feature: you can actually remove the visor to reveal Zorii’s eyes behind the mask! Now the question is if Hasbro sculpted more of the face or just the eyes and part of the nose. I suppose someone will certainly destroy the helmet of their Zorii Bliss figure to find out. Click on the photo below for the full resolution version! The photo real eyes look really nice. Thanks to Cybereye for the alert!

Cover For The 'The Rise Of Skywalker' 4K Blu-Ray Revealed

Blu-Ray.com has an entry for the upcoming The Rise of Skywalker 4k Blu-Ray that also reveals the cover. It’s a re-use of the exclusive Dolby Cinema poster, so it’s nothing new. A lone X-Wing is facing off a fleet of Final Order Star Destroyers. The release date of the Blu-Ray is still unknown. Will you add The Rise of Skywalker Blu-Ray to your Star Wars movie collection? Or will you wait until the movie is on Disney+? What do you think of the cover?

Are you tired of seeing the same boring figures get repackaged in TVC? We feel the same as well. With all the “repackaging” happening in The Vintage Collection, I thought about one item that Hasbro should ‘probably consider’ re-releasing. Because it’s the 40th Anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back, would it be the perfect time to get this beautiful vehicle out again, perhaps with improved paint operations. Heck, they could charge more for it and add electronic lights and sounds, and that would make it a worthwhile repurchase for me! Hasbro’s made sure to get out solid cases of Boba Fett recently, so they have plenty of the pilots out there to steer this ship! They’d only need to get out a new Lando Calrissian, Lobot and new Cloud City Wing Guards to make its re-release perfect!

This Is A TVC Imperial Stormtrooper CODE RED!

It’s baffling how The Vintage Collection Imperial Troop Transport is on its way to some collectors’ homes as we speak, and yet nearly everyone is STILL waiting on The Vintage Collection Rogue One Imperial Stormtrooper figures to populate it. Arrival dates get pushed to the next month once we reach the end of the current month. And not too many people know what’s going on with it. Hasbro, we warned you the moment this figure was announced to produce it like you had no other figure to produce. But as usual, you don’t listen. If those pre-orders are limited or canceled, get ready for a backlash you’ve never seen to date. Oh, and before you say “Remnant Stormtroopers” are on the way, then you don’t understand why longtime collectors want the clean white Imperial Stormtroopers first and foremost.

Read The Colin Trevorrow Episode IX Script!

The script for Colin Trevorrow’s Episode IX has finally appeared online! It was leaked a while ago, but until now fans had no access to the script itself and had to rely on other people summarizing it. But earlier today a Twitter user posted a link to a file hoster that will allow you to download the full script! I downloaded the script and checked it, it seems legit. It’s the version from December 16, 2016, shortly before Carrie Fisher passed away. I cannot post a link here, but I will point you to the Tweet that will give you the download link. Just click here to go to the Tweet! You’d better hurry if you want to read it before Lucasfilm has the link removed!

I found this to be a bit humorous. Maybe you will too, or maybe you won’t. While periodically looking on Amazon for a Luke Skywalker (Crait) figure (since they sent me a destroyed one that arrived months ago), I was shocked to see what the aftermarket price is on this canceled figure. Currently, it’s over $60.00. That’s obviously not the humorous part. What is humorous, however, is the “alternate” lower-priced figure Amazon recommended instead in the top left corner. Click the image below and see it for yourself. I mean, I know it’s a “silver anniversary” figure and everything, but come on Amazon! I am not necessarily looking for a lower-priced figure, I am looking for this figure at MSRP! How irritating is it to deal with Hasbro’s inability to get the appropriate stock to their retail partners, without it going to ROSS, Ollie’s, or TJ Maxx first?
