San Diego Comic-Con International is over and all that remains are the credit card balances. Over the convention Star Wars was in full effect, with Friday still being considered Star Wars Day with several panels from Hasbro, Del Rey, Dark Horse, Gentle Giant, Sideshow Collectibles, and more, and Star Wars Action News is here to recap the biggest reveals over this past weekend.
It's the day after Comic-Con and as in previous years, Hasbro will offer a limited quantity of their show exclusives online including the Star Wars Carbonite Chamber. These generally sell out within the hour and their site is already experiencing some lag, so this is going to be a bandwidth raffle ticket. Click here and keep checking for availability. Good luck!
