By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, January 20, 2016

America's newspaper The USA Today posted this preview of the new 2016 Princess Leia Figure as based on Star Wars Rebels which, as should come as no surprise, is based on early concept art from the original movie.  It is due this Fall, and I can't wait to buy one!  Meanwhile, series stars Sabine and Hera remain elusive.

Also, there is no Lando Calrissian toy based on his appearances (voiced by Billy Dee Williams) on Star Wars Rebels.

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, January 15, 2016

Want to see a new trailer for the back half of season two of Star Wars Rebels?  Yes, you do - but due to the very nature of advertising, it will show you things in these episodes which for some reason are now considered spoilers.  I'd say just watch it, it's awesome.

SDCC 2015: Hasbro Booth Adds Season 2 Rex and Inquisitor

By Mike — Sunday, July 12, 2015

Hasbro adds Season 2 Rex and the second Inquisitor to their booth. These figures are slated for release in Spring 2016 along with Mission Series Ahsoka Tano and Darth Vader. Rex features a nice removable helmet that perfectly on his bald and bearded noggin. Here's hoping a Season 2 Wolf is not far behind, although this figure will be probably require swappable heads.

Galactic Hunter Video Theater Presents: Star Wars Rebels - The Siege of Lothal

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, June 23, 2015

We're back! But just for this one - the season starts in the Fall. Star Wars Rebels kicked off season 2 on Saturday with the one-hour "The Siege of Lothal." Ahsoka's back, and we see Darth Vader being an incredible pilot. We meet Phoenix Squadron, we see the return of another familiar face from the original trilogy, and we also see the return of another government official who isn't quite ruthless enough for the new boss. Tarkin's specter looms large over Lothal, but we don't see him this week - that's OK, because Darth Vader keeps it real for the always Star Wars-y show on Disney XD. Darth Vader isn't afraid to sacrifice the pawns to get to the important pieces.

Six Second Toy Talk: Star Wars Rebels Imperial Troop Transport Vehicle

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, March 4, 2015

It's shipping! I got the Imperial Troop Transport from Star Wars Rebels when I ordered it at Entertainment Earth (available here now in a case with 2 per box). It's neat! It has articulated front cannons, 2 firing rockets, storage for 9 figures, and places to keep bunches of weapons. It does not have funny hats, wheels, a record player, or a large trunk for storage. Watch Six Second Toy Talk after the break to see it in action. It won't take long.

USA Today Reveals Star Wars Rebels Darth Vader and [Redacted]

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, March 3, 2015

Be warned, if you haven't seen last night's episode of Star Wars Rebels then this story on USA Today may ruin it for you.  Darth Vader is well known, so I can post this headline: Darth Vader's back in 'Star Wars Rebels'.  You knew that.  And now we know Hasbro is doing a figure for it, which is fantastic news - but there's another figure coming with him, and that's what you may not yet want to know.

Galactic Hunter Video Theater Presents: Star Wars Rebels - Fire Across the Galaxy

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, March 2, 2015

Tonight's season finale of Star Wars Rebels doesn't answer many of the hanging questions, but we do get a big peek behind the curtain in "Fire Across the Galaxy." We see a potential death, an unmasking, and wrap up Kanan's imprisonment with what is probably the best space battle we've seen on the TV editions of the franchise so far. In short, good times all around - and the amount of giddy fan stuff at the end is going to make you scream out for joy. (As long as Hasbro follows the cues of the episode, of course.)

 

Read on for more! I just finished watching this moments ago, so it's not too in-depth. And spoilers follow.

Galactic Hunter Video Theater Presents: Star Wars Rebels - Rebel Resolve

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, February 23, 2015

Tonight's episode of Star Wars Rebels continues the second real multi-episode arc of the season. "Rebel Resolve" builds a little tension without spending too much time on the specifics of Kanan's imprisonment and also makes us think that Ezra likes him more than Hera does..

 

Surprisingly, nobody has been rescued and there's an honest-to-goodness cliffhanger to make things interesting next time. Read on for more!
