st Unverified special report: Could this be the REAL reason for no TFA Luke?

Today at 09:09:10 PM by dj121
This "Special Report" comes from information given by an industry insider. In this article is the supposed real reason why we have yet to receive a TFA Luke figure across any Hasbro line. The article comes to us from http://themidichloriancount.com

Take it with a grain of salt, but bases on what the article says, I would not be the least bit surprised, as it refers to an employee trying to call out the Hasbro Star Wars brand manager on character selection. True or not, it makes for an interesting read. To check it out and form your own opinion, click below for the jump!

st Update from B.B.T.S.: Hot Toys Pre-Order Jedi Master Yoda!

Today at 10:51:23 AM by Darth Spice

Kotobukiya: Coming to you directly from Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, this two-pack brings together Yoda, the former head of the Jedi Order, and R2-D2, the trusty blue and white astromech droid.  The figures feature their look from their time on Dagobah, and the pack includes multiple interchangeable parts and a special bonus translucent spirit version of Yoda.

Thinkgeek: Go where no sushi has gone before with the Star Trek U.S.S. Enterprise Sushi Set; charge up your USB devices with the Death Star or R2-D2 USB Wall Chargers; prevent burns with the Darth Vader or Stormtrooper Silicone Oven Mitts; and role-play your heart out with the Minecraft Foam Deluxe Diamond Pickaxe or Attack on Titan Sword.

Hot Toys: The highly-accurate collectible figure is specially crafted based on the image of Boba Fett in Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi. It features finely sculpted Boba Fett helmet and armor, his signature jetpack, detailed weapon, accessories, and figure stand. The deluxe version of this figure will exclusively include an additional Sarlacc diorama figure base and two real-like jetpack thrust fire accessories!

Pre-Order: "Do or do not. There is no try." Jedi Master Yoda was the wisest and most powerful of all Jedi. For over 800 years, Yoda instructed young Jedi and instilled in them a profound sense of discipline, strength, and unity. During the dark times when Galactic Empire ruled the galaxy, Luke Skywalker went to Dagobah in search of Yoda for training to become a Jedi which led to the path that will restore balance to the galaxy!

st Walmart clearance means DEEP discounts for TFA!

May 20, 2016, 09:29:07 PM by dj121
Start checking your Walmart stores, fellow troopers. It seems the clearance season has begun and it means deep discounts on some Star Wars products. At this store in southern Maine, the $24.97 class II vehicles have been marked down to an incredibly low $5.00. The Micro Machines have also been marked down to very low prices. Several reports are coming in of other stores discounting the new wave of Black Series figures. Keep checking and let us know what you find in your stores! Maybe this will send a valuable message to the powers that be at Hasbro. Stop wasting resources on products that will not sell, and focus on the heart and sole of the Star Wars brand. 3.75" Action figures!
