Thrawn’s SDCC Exclusive Easter Eggs

Kenner Cameo Updates: Star Wars Rebels

It's no secret that the Filoni and the crew behind Star Wars Rebels are huge vintage action figure fans.  We have reported in the past on Kenner's Yoda being an influence in the designs of his Rebels counterpart.  But with Season 3 coming to close this weekend, we thought it was time to add each of the Kenner nods that have appeared in the last three years of the series to The Kenner Cameo Chronology. And since the show reintroduced the Imperial Troop Transport to the Star Wars universe, we have also added each of its appearances, which we have previously outlined in our "37 Years of Imperial Troop Transport History and Restoration" article. Now before we begin, there is one more reference that we [...]

Kenner Cameo Updates: Mini-Rigs & The Falcon

Welcome to another update to our Kenner Cameo Chronology.  At the Kenner Cameo Chronology, it is our goal to provide a guide for every time a Kenner (and sometimes Hasbro) concept or design has been showcased, outside of the action figure line, in Star Wars comics, publishing, animation, video games and so on.  Today we bring you three more entries that have all occurred within the last year.  – 2016 - MLC-3 This Kenner vehicle was featured in the comic story found within the Star Wars Rebels Magazine published by Egmont UK Ltd.  In issue 17, Kanan and Ezra attack a couple of AT-ATs while piloting the mini-rigs. Credit and thanks to Adam Giles AKA The Scavenger UK for the heads-up and images. The author [...]

Director Thrawn – The Grand Admiral Variant

With the latest wave of Rogue One 3 3/4" figures hitting online etailers, there is now a new variant in the wild for those so inclined to pursue.  It appears the good Grand Admiral has the same ambition as Director Krennic as he can be found with two different ranks. Our TOY RUN co-host over at Jedibusiness.com received the correctly ranked Grand Admiral where we received a version mimicking the doomed director of the Death Star project. We are assuming the correct version as seen on Star Wars Rebels is the second version, produced after our own which bears the date stamp of Friday, October 28th, 2016. We do find it interesting that the card art bears the incorrect rank as well as seen below.   Here you [...]

16 Parallels Supreme Leader Snoke shares with…

Now before we begin, let the record show that we are completely fine with the possibility that Star Wars Rebel’s Ezra Bridger does not pan out to be the Supreme Leader of the First Order.  The point of this exercise is to point out the numerous similarities we have found these two characters have in common.  Now since their similarities have continued to increase since last month's debut of Season 3 of Rebels, we felt it was due time to make our full case.  And since the fate of Ezra nor the identity of Snoke has yet to be made known, this is entirely an exercise based on observable speculation.  The information covered in this theory stem from The Force Awakens film and novelization, Seasons 1-3 [...]
