Back in 2013 Hasbro released the very first 6-inch The Black Series figures to mixed reviews - they were great, but a lot of fans opted out and that lead to cheap clearance prices on Amazon within a few months.

Hasbro is reissuing X-Wing Pilot Luke Skywalker for Star Wars Celebration this weekend, and there's a big process about how to line up to get yours.
A page of exclusive merchandise from this year's Star Wars Celebration is up for the peeking. It's packed with t-shirts, but also some plush items, hats, pins, and barware. It's worth a peek, if nothing else to see what a hybrid of BB-8 and an orange might look like. Click here for more.

Why pay for a hotel when you can go to Celebration VII free while you're at work?
StarWars.com updated with a feature explaining that you can watch a number of panels live from your computer. Or if you're one of the very young and hip, your "phone." Obviously you're denied the exclusives, the costumes, the lines, and new adventures in what qualifies as food, but you can see some of the fun at home. (Memo to Comic-Con in San Diego: copy this.)
