It begins!  The Star Wars Greedo Premium Hikari Sofubi Vinyl Figure is up for grabs at Entertainment Earth right now, is limited to 2,000 pieces, and is $79.99.  I have a few non-Star Wars Hikari figures myself and quite like them.

Galactic Hunter Video Theater Presents: Star Wars Rebels - Idiot's Array

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, January 19, 2015

This is great! Tonight's episode of Star Wars Rebels is "Idiot's Array," which lets you know right from the start that this is an episode for the hardcore loyalists from the 1980s. Originally appearing in the novels and some other Expanded Universe materials, the episode title lets you know that a familiar face will make an appearance, voiced by one of two special guest voice actors. And it was really fun, too!

If you liked the more episodic one-shot stories of old and love easter eggs aimed specifically at fans like you, this is a real gem of an installment. I daresay it's my favorite of the season and those who hate spoilers, well, too bad. Read on for more!

Target Leaving Canada, Eh

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, January 15, 2015

Just in 2013, Target made waves by announcing they were moving in to Canada and supplanting Zellers. And now? Not. News reports confirm the big red dot is leaving the Great White North effective pretty much nowish. Basically, the roll-out was supposedly too fast with prices that were higher than anticipated. Will this mean US Target exclusives will go back to English-only packaging? We shall see!

Build a Millennium Falcon Prop - in the United Kingdom

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, January 9, 2015

Over in another place where they speak English, a number of companies have put out little weekly magazine-with-figure or magazine-with-parts to build something really big.  DeAgostini is doing a 1:1 replica of an 808mm (32-inch) prop of the Millennium Falcon from The Empire Strikes Back in this format, with 100 "issues" of parts and pieces at £8.99-£10.99 per - so it gets pretty expensive.  Click here to read more.  No word on a US distribution plan yet.

 

If we hear more about distribution in other territories, we'll post that too.
