Unlike movie-based lines of the Prequel Era, The Force Awakens line seems to be offering up a fair amount of figures reissued from previous lines. Yakface.com confirms (via BB-8 News Facebook page )what we discussed on the last Galaxy of Toys Podcast; that a Slave 1 with Boba Fett will be coming in TFA packaging. Another set of reissues that appear to be coming are two Epic Battles Toys 'R' Us exclusives. The 6-pack sets appear to be themed by trilogies and offer figures that save for Qui-Gon appear to all be 5 POA reissues from the last few lines. This reveal also comes from a Facebook page. When and if these will be released stateside is still unknown. How many more reissued sets or figures [...]
"We're bringing to life the nostalgia that many young parents feel about Star Wars and Kraft, and creating new and exciting ways to experience them together as a family," says Scott Glenn, brand manager for Kraft Macaroni & Cheese. With Star Wars now once again approaching fever pitch as anticipation grows toward the debut of The Force Awakens, it’s become clear that it’s not just the new Star Wars that’s on everyone’s mind. A new appreciation for Star Wars nostalgia and vintage collectibles have become the focus of not just fans but corporate America as well. Companies like Sony have skewed their Star Wars advertising to an older demographic with the inclusion of Star Wars nostalgia. Kraft Macaroni as well has gone as far as [...]
We teared up at, "It's all true...all of it." ESPN's Monday Night Football played host to the debut of the first official full trailer for The Force Awakens. Leading up to the halftime showing many theaters put tickets for the December 18th premiere up for the pre-sale (which not surprisingly broke the internet for the evening). Now back to watching the trailer another 19 hundred and seventy-seven times!

Now that New York Comic Con's Hasbro, panel has come to pass, we have updated our "Gold 5's Report" on upcoming figures. Not only have we included the Seventh Sister Inquisitor from Season 2 of Rebels (which begins this Wednesday) but the newly listed Class II Vehicle Slave 1 with Exclusive Figure found at BigBadToyStore.com. The vehicle is listed as being from Episode V and so it is likely to include the 5POA Boba Fett most recently released in the Armor Up line. Until next time, May the Figures be with you!
Last Saturday we began our countdown of the 75 days left until the premiere of The Force Awakens. We are celebrating this highly anticipated next episode of the Star Wars Saga by opening a different action figure, vehicle and/or accessory every day until December 18th. With each figure opened we offer a brief review and rating to accompany the pictures we post. All reviews are posted first to our social media pages (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram) but will be rounded up here on the site each week as well. Now obviously with more days remaining than unopened figures available from the new figure line, we'll be supplementing from time to time with figures from past lines who have been screaming at us to be released from their plastic [...]
