Nerdist revealed a surprisingly early burst of looks at new Rebels and movie products which, no doubt, will be part of the Rogue One branded offering during the final months of 2016. Highlights include:
Hera's A-Wing (oooh)
Electronic 12-inch Kanan Jarrus
Electronic 12-inch Darth Vader
12-inch ROTJ Speeder Bike with Biker Scout
3 3/4-inch Jakku Rey in Scavenger Outfit
America's newspaper The USA Today posted this preview of the new 2016 Princess Leia Figure as based on Star Wars Rebels which, as should come as no surprise, is based on early concept art from the original movie. It is due this Fall, and I can't wait to buy one! Meanwhile, series stars Sabine and Hera remain elusive.
Also, there is no Lando Calrissian toy based on his appearances (voiced by Billy Dee Williams) on Star Wars Rebels.
Want to see a new trailer for the back half of season two of Star Wars Rebels? Yes, you do - but due to the very nature of advertising, it will show you things in these episodes which for some reason are now considered spoilers. I'd say just watch it, it's awesome.
In a headline that tells you everything you need to know, StarWars.com posted this: The Fight Against the Empire Will Continue in Star Wars Rebels Season Three.
The DisneyXD show will start year #3 in 2016. No word on what this means for the toys, but the show has certainly been fun to watch this season.
Hasbro adds Season 2 Rex and the second Inquisitor to their booth. These figures are slated for release in Spring 2016 along with Mission Series Ahsoka Tano and Darth Vader. Rex features a nice removable helmet that perfectly on his bald and bearded noggin. Here's hoping a Season 2 Wolf is not far behind, although this figure will be probably require swappable heads.
If there's one thing you can bet on for Hasbro Star Wars in 2016, it's that you're gonna need a heck of a lot more room. We have uploaded photos featuring Hasbro's The Black Series 2016 reveals yesterday that include a couple of new Star Wars Rebels additions to the 6 inch assortment and a vehicle that can also serve as a coffee table or T.V. stand it's so freakin huge.
If you're so inclined, Amazon has Blu-Ray and DVD releases for Star Wars Rebels Season 1 up for grabs. DVD is currently $39.99, Blu-Ray is $45.99.
We're back! But just for this one - the season starts in the Fall. Star Wars Rebels kicked off season 2 on Saturday with the one-hour "The Siege of Lothal." Ahsoka's back, and we see Darth Vader being an incredible pilot. We meet Phoenix Squadron, we see the return of another familiar face from the original trilogy, and we also see the return of another government official who isn't quite ruthless enough for the new boss. Tarkin's specter looms large over Lothal, but we don't see him this week - that's OK, because Darth Vader keeps it real for the always Star Wars-y show on Disney XD. Darth Vader isn't afraid to sacrifice the pawns to get to the important pieces.

If you're itching to see more of Darth Vader and a bunch of returning faces from The Clone Wars, you won't have much longer to wait. June 20, 2015 - the day Ezra and pals return to Disney XD with a new one-hour "movie!" Click here to read more on StarWars.com.
We've had a bunch of nameless Wookiee Warrior action figures, but this is the first cartoon one! He's skinny, hairy, and tall - and comes in a two-pack with another character. Should you add to the growing Wookiee horde? Read on!
It's shipping! I got the Imperial Troop Transport from Star Wars Rebels when I ordered it at Entertainment Earth (available here now in a case with 2 per box). It's neat! It has articulated front cannons, 2 firing rockets, storage for 9 figures, and places to keep bunches of weapons. It does not have funny hats, wheels, a record player, or a large trunk for storage. Watch Six Second Toy Talk after the break to see it in action. It won't take long.
Be warned, if you haven't seen last night's episode of Star Wars Rebels then this story on USA Today may ruin it for you. Darth Vader is well known, so I can post this headline: Darth Vader's back in 'Star Wars Rebels'. You knew that. And now we know Hasbro is doing a figure for it, which is fantastic news - but there's another figure coming with him, and that's what you may not yet want to know.
Tonight's season finale of Star Wars Rebels doesn't answer many of the hanging questions, but we do get a big peek behind the curtain in "Fire Across the Galaxy." We see a potential death, an unmasking, and wrap up Kanan's imprisonment with what is probably the best space battle we've seen on the TV editions of the franchise so far. In short, good times all around - and the amount of giddy fan stuff at the end is going to make you scream out for joy. (As long as Hasbro follows the cues of the episode, of course.)
Read on for more! I just finished watching this moments ago, so it's not too in-depth. And spoilers follow.
Tonight's episode of Star Wars Rebels continues the second real multi-episode arc of the season. "Rebel Resolve" builds a little tension without spending too much time on the specifics of Kanan's imprisonment and also makes us think that Ezra likes him more than Hera does..
Surprisingly, nobody has been rescued and there's an honest-to-goodness cliffhanger to make things interesting next time. Read on for more!
A special guest is here! Tonight's episode of Star Wars Rebels is "Call to Action" gives us real stakes, real consequences, another guest star, and the feeling that something is going to happen beyond returning to the status quo for once. In other words, it's a good one!
The core crew is here as are many recurring members of the Empire, all sharing the screen at the same time. It's feeling more and more like Star Wars. Read on for more!
