Thanks once more to my pal Shannon, we've got a R2-Series Astromech Droid Grey and Green (not R7-A7) - plus a bunch more as part of the second wave of figures. With this one there's a fine line between "proper configuration" and "I need one of each part," so you're seeing the "I need one of each part" configuration. How does Ahsoka's droid translate to realism via theme park? Read on!
Guess what - next week your sneak preview figure goes up for sale in San Diego! It's today's Figure of the Day. Read about Stormtrooper (First Order) right now, or don't. It comes in a neat slipcase with a booklet hidden in the back. I've got many pictures for you if you read on!
My pal who I will call Juan Nonymous sent along sample shots of the Jabba's Rancor Pit gift set Jabba the Hutt in comparison with the 2010 model from Walmart. This new-for-2015 version is a 100% new mold with new deco, meaning it is... say it with me...
"Just different enough to make you mad." Well, not Jabba, Jabba's new and interesting. The rest of the set is as interesting as your collection isn't - it's great stuff if you don't got it yet. This set will be sold at the Entertainment Earth Booth at Comic-Con next week, on Toys R Us.com, and probably retail stores too. Want to see more images? Check after the jump.
It's wordy, and only available on the Comic-Con International show floor. The Star Wars Darth Vader Hologram Limited Edition 20-Inch Action Figure has electronic lights in the box and is basically the same size as the projection on General Veers' AT-AT's dashboard. It will be $59.99 and limited to the show floor - no online sales are being made so if you want one, you're going to need to start driving to San Diego or bribing your friends who are going to the show. It will be sold at booth #2343 via Entertainment Earth.
Ad: New at Entertainment Earth - Star Wars Hikar! Limited to 500 pieces, check out the Infrared Darth Vader - an Entertainment Earth exclusive. Also new and not an exclusive, K-3PO - which kicks off the C-3PO mold.
EW, girl, EW. Over at Entertainment Weekly, you can read the descriptively titled article Check out an exclusive look at the first toys from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. It gives you a look at the $25 Black Series debut Stormtrooper as well as Mattel's Hot Wheels car and a LEGO buildable figure.
Let's finish up this look at the first round of 2015 exclusives (more are coming in round 2) with the R2-Series Astromech Droid Blue and Yellow edition - this one is really close to the unreleased 2012 R8-B7! And he has a swell hat, assuming of course that's the hat you opted for when you built him at a Disney park this year. We switch gears tomorrow, so read on!
So now we're up to 25 of these in the 2015 series - but I'm still working through the first 11! Today it's the R8-Series Astromech Droid White and Blue version, and there's an orange one coming shortly. Amazing. Get one if you dare, and read on!
Today: R5-Series Astromech Droid Red and Black! It's like R5-K6, which is really expensive on eBay from the Scramble on Yavin set, but this is.... less expensive. If you're at a Disney Park, at least. Read on!
Today in Figure of the Day: R2-Series Astromech Droid Silver and Blue MK II! It's a lot like the last R2-D2, but not - other than the dome, each piece has slightly different tooling and a lot of deco tweaks. It's for completists only, but at this point that's a lot of us. Read on!
