By Mike — Friday, July 19, 2013

Angry Birds is a bonafide hit, and we're going to make another hit with Angry Birds 2: Telepods. That's the primary message Hasbro wanted to convey in today's SDCC panel. The Rovio app and mash up has been the highest rated Angry Birds game ever and reached the top of the charts in 115 countries. That's a pretty big accomplishment, and one that should enamor the franchise to a lot of younger fans, which has been their overall strategy.

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, July 18, 2013

While not a proper Star Wars item, there's a really cool, really weird item being sold at the DKE Toys booth.   Bunnywith an Affinity for Slave Women is a bagged $12 figure available in MUSCLE flesh color or plain white, bagged with a header card.  It looks like a certain fat crime lord, and is actually pretty amusing.

SDCC13: EE Exclusive Black Series Greedo

By Mike — Thursday, July 18, 2013

We took some shots (no pun intended) of the upcoming Entertainment Earth exclusive Black Series 6 inch Greedo. The nicely sculpted, super articulated Rodian bounty hunter has turned out quite well and is another great addition to a new 6 inch series that is winning over many. UPDATE: BS Greedo is an exclusive reveal for Entertainment Earth and not exclusive to them only. Greedo will be a general release. Our apologies for the confusion.
