st Dewback Patrol: Chicago Comic-Con Recap Gallery!

Yesterday at 07:55:00 AM by Darth Spice
After wrapping up my 15th Chicago Comic-Con in 16 years, as a Star Wars fan I must say the show was more than a little flat.  The ticket prices are outrageous these days, as one could find themselves down over $80 before walking through the door to buy anything.  This effects the vendors who are raising their prices to counter the increases on the booth prices.  Overall I have to say I was shocked to find not one Star Wars autograph guest and there was very little in the programming from a galaxy far, far away.  We can only hope next year will bring an awakening to Chicago Comic-Con, until then enjoy our final recap gallery from Lance Neilson at 2nd Shift Photography!

Kotobukiya: The Kotobukiya Japanese import Star Wars ArtFX+ Statues bring you all of the quality and detailing that you expect from an ArtFX release in a great smaller scale that's perfect for collecting! The new collection has exploded with such greats as Boba Fett, Darth Vader, Imperial Stormtroopers, and Republic Clone Troopers (the latter two in easy to collect 2 Packs)! And now you can also get the most famous droid duo of all time, C-3PO & R2-D2!

Levitron Display Systems: The Levitron Revolution features EZ Float technology to make levitating your favorite collectibles a snap! The magnetic hover disc can float objects up to 13 ounces in mid-air, while white accent LEDs spotlight your models, jewelry, memorabilia, and other display pieces!  The Antigravity Platform includes a 3 inch Earth Globe and features blue LEDs to showcase floating objects and create a beautiful visual effect.

Zak Designs: The Dark Lord of the Sith and the feared Imperial Stormtrooper are happy to keep your money safe and your drink warm (or cool) with these expertly molded ceramic likenesses. Each set comes with a molded bank and matching molded mug in either Darth Vader or Stormtrooper.

Star Wars Cookie Jars: Calling all foodies from the frozen tundra of Hoth to the forest swamps of Dagobah, you now have elegant kitchen storage from a much more civilized age - the Star Wars figural cookie jars with sound! Made of plastic, these cookie jars will make sounds from the movies when closed or opened.  One is the molded helmet of Dark Lord of the Sith, Darth Vader; and the other is the droid you've been looking for, R2-D2!  These fun and functional cookie jars are a must have for any Star Wars fan or collector at $34.99 each!

st Mos Eisley News Brief: Exclusive look at Rebels Season 2

August 21, 2015, 06:54:20 PM by Darth Spice
Fans attending New York Comic Con on Thursday, October 8th will receive an exclusive sneak peek of what's to come in the second season of Star Wars Rebels with a panel featuring special guests plus a preview screening of two new episodes from the series. As the second season of Star Wars Rebels opens, the crew of the Ghost is now considered a very real threat to the Empire and has caught the attention of Darth Vader himself. Undeterred, the rebels seek out old friends and add powerful allies to their cause, forming the beginnings of a more formidable alliance against the Empire. To stop them, Vader will dispatch new agents to hunt down their growing coalition, determined to snuff them out before they can ignite a galaxy to rebellion.

The Star Wars Rebels panel will take place on the Empire Stage from 1:30-2:30 p.m. and will be followed by an exclusive screening of two new episodes later on the same stage, from 5:30-6:30 p.m. These all-new episodes will feature the series debut of Captain Rex, Captain Gregor and Commander Wolffe - three clones from the previous Star Wars animated series, Star Wars: The Clone Wars. They join another fan favorite from The Clone Wars - Ahsoka Tano - who made her Star Wars Rebels debut in the final episode of season 1.
