What we expect from Rebels Saga Legends Last week's Jedi Temple Archives reveal helped to answer some early questions about what type of figures we'll be getting in the next year. And the answer to that is clearly Original Trilogy centered as in JTA's reveal it was shown that we are getting 3 more Return of the Jedi figures, 1 Revenge of the Sith figure and 0 Star Wars Rebels figures past number SL14 AT-DP Driver. Yes of the 25 figures announced so far, only 8 are based on Star Wars Rebels, the line featured on the very [...]

Kenner Cameos Present: The F-LER & The YT-XC

Welcome to our newest feature where we will be spotlighting original Kenner (and Hasbro) designs and concepts that have appeared in other forms of media outside of the action figure line.

Star Wars in the Hands of Fans

On episode #10 of Rebels Recon "Inside Idiot's Array" we were provided a brief glimpse behind the editing process of Star Wars Rebels. In the featurette we see that editor Joe Elwood gets a little help from the first 12. Proudly displayed below his monitors you can see not only the first dozen Kenner action figures released but they are displayed on the Acton Display Stand. Also lurking in the shadows is an ITT (Imperial Troop Transporter) and a few extra vintage Jawas flanking an unsuspecting 12" R2. How great is it that all facets of Star Wars is now in the hands of the fans. From JJ Abrams, Jonathan Storey (The Disney Store's Vice President of Sales) and Rebels creators like Dave Filoni and Joe Elwood. [...]

Episode 7 Cameo in Star Wars #1

Did Marvel's Star Wars #1 just give us an appearance of an Episode 7 alien? Yesterday Marvel Comics returned to the galaxy far, far away for the first time in close to 30 years. Their return to publishing Star Wars comics was promoted at comic book shops across the country with "Welcome Home" parties that included free swag. The premiere issue of the ongoing series is set to break comic book records by selling 1 million copies. This was helped by the creation of about 100 different cover variants that were made available at numerous exclusive locations (our sympathies to completest collectors).  In our extremely biased opinion the best by far was the incredible cover by John Tyler Christopher which payed tribute to Kenner's vintage action figure line! Now in the story, which [...]

Lando’s Back, Bet Leia’s next!

Last month we speculated about who would be next to guest star on Star Wars Rebels and yesterday it was confirmed. Lando Calrissian will be the next character to crossover from the films to the Disney XD animated series. Original actor Billy Dee Williams, to no surprise, will once again be voicing the character as he has done in just about every official appearance of the smuggler. As Williams states in this promo, his persona is Lando. With Calrissian's debut in Rebels it becoming all the more evident that the show is really working hard to introduce a new, a Clone Wars generation, to the characters of the Original Trilogy. As Lucasfilm moves ever so closer to their next film, making its debut 338 days from now, [...]
