Hasbro Reveals New Star Wars, Transformers Before NYCC

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, October 8, 2014

While my budget for travel basically covers trips to toy stores and the occasional bike ride to Wal-Mart, I'm seeing a ton of great coverage from  New York City at the Hasbro party before New York Comic Con.  New 6-inch and 3 3/4-inch Star Wars figures were shown, as are some nifty new Transformers toys.  Seeing as you can get all-new Leia Boushh figures in regular and extra-large sizes, clearly it's a great time to be alive.

Galactic Hunter Video Theater Presents: Star Wars Rebels - Spark of Rebellion

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, October 6, 2014

Star Wars Rebels kicks off with Spark of Rebellion. (You can already buy it on DVD.) The show's look is gorgeous, but narratively speaking it feels just like the pilot for Marvel's Agents of SHIELD and numerous other team-oriented genre shows where an existing group picks up a new member they don't quite trust. Heck, even Beast Wars does a lot of this. You know the beats, there's not a lot of surprise to be had, but this has one special thing going for it: it's Star Wars. The story is about par for what you might expect for a show aimed at kids on a Disney action show channel. The voice acting will not make you cringe - well, maybe the minor Imperials will. Minor spoilers apply - nothing of great consequence happens as it's mostly exposition - so even if you missed it, read on!
