Q&A: Star Wars Clearance Crush, Expanded Universe Returns, and Delays Aplenty

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, January 31, 2016

This week in Q&A - Let's talk the Episode 8 Delay - is it a problem? Not for me! And the doom of Toys R Us and the impending toy clearance crunch - I may not share your opinions. But I do think the old Expanded Universe still very much has a home in the redacted galaxy we inhabit today... it just might not be identical.

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, January 3, 2016

Welcome to 2016! We're back with Q&A and thanks to the secrecy of the film and the toys, we're really not a lot better off today than we were a month ago. We are, however, saying all spoilers are fair game for The Force Awakens from here on out. The Black Series at Walmart - can we expect more Cantina aliens? (Or any?) Deleted toys - what's the deal with those? And expensive figures - should you get excited, or just go with what's cheap?
