A couple of interesting reports popped up this week on Star Wars: Rebels, the new TV show currently expected for a 2014 premiere and, most likely, a Celebration Europe tease. BleedingCool.com has a report in which they describe the show as being teen-heavy, which isn't entirely unexpected given that Luke was pretty young, and it's not like Biggs was all that much older. Supposedly the same is true with Episode VII, also reported by the site with a casting note confirmed by Lucasfilm.
It's not Star Wars, but shares the same Kenner DNA. Super7 is rolling out their new ReAction Alien action figure assortment that's based on the cancelled line from 1979 in eloquent style for SDCC. There are four exclusives altogether and two are FREE!
Gentle Giant always tends to offer something nifty and desirable for the summer convention exclusives, like their 3D Yoda and Jumbo Blue Snaggletooth from 2012. For 2013's Comic-Con International, the creative artists from Burbank have announced FIVE Comic-Con exclusives (thus far), with two Star Wars offerings that are bound to be on top of your exclusives wishlist.
There are some pretty awesome Star Wars titles in September, and the one that's highly anticipated begins with a "The", as J.R. Rinzler's adaptation of George Lucas' original screenplay takes shape in pulp form. Check out the additional variant covers to collect as well as the rest of September's exciting offerings!

It's Monday, so read some Q&A! Are we suffering from brand fatigue? I don't think so, personally. Should we expect Hasbro to do a Pre-Order Program for a Death Star Playset? I wouldn't hold my breath. And there's more! Also, more adventures in spying on how the Hot Wheels half lives at the end.
That's the rumor! Comingsoon.com, Slashfilm, Theme Park Insider, and IGN (among others) all have reports of this tantalizing, thrilling, and completely expected development. UPDATE - a reader and former Disney employee added his two cents.
For those of you who are interested in reading, something called William Shakespeare's Star Wars: Verily, A New Hope is actually a thing coming out July 2. Amazon has it up for pre-order, and EW.com has an excerpt up you can read right now! Ian Doescher penned the play which comes complete with illustrations that are appropriately of an older era.
After a few aborted game plans and years of speculation that wasn't really speculation, EA's DICE division has something special for you: an E3 teaser trailer for Star Wars Battlefront III! You can see it after the jump, although there's not a heck of a lot to really digest here just yet other than a lot of familiar, snowy sounds.
Your long, national nightmare is over - it's Q&A! What does the future of Vintage 3-Packs look like? I'm guessing not great. And what's the best way to clean aging figures as they get oily or greasey? We have a couple of options for you. And don't forget, as slow as things have been, new vintage exclusive vehicles (well old ones in new boxes, at least) are on the way! All this and fast toy cars in Q&A!

A few of you have commented on our recent coverage of not-necessarily-licensed collectibles, and to this I say: Check out the Star Wars Han Solo in Carbonite Light Switch on Etsy. If this doesn't make you smile, you're dead inside and dead to me.
