Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi Vanity Fair Covers Revealed

The official Vanity Fair magazine website has updated with the reveal of four new magazine covers that feature Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi. The covers feature several of the new outfits for the returning cast including a first full look at Rose, played by Kelly Marie Tran.  Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi will premiere in theaters on December, 15, 2017.   

Personally I think that Vanity did a great tribute to Carrie Fisher and I hope she has a great final role in the upcoming film.

Marvel Announces Mace Windu Comic Mini-Series

The official Star Wars website has updated with the reveal that Marvel will be releasing a new Star Wars comic miniseries this August.  The five issue miniseries titled “, Star Wars: Jedi of the Republic — Mace Windu,” will star the Jedi hero, Mace Windu. The series will take place after the start of the Clone Wars.  The story will be written by Matt Owens and illustrated by Denys Cowan.

Marvel provided a short synopsis for the miniseries.

For over a thousand generations, the Jedi have been the peacekeepers of the galaxy…but now, at the dawn of the Clone Wars, they find themselves in a new role: generals in the Army of the Republic. As Mace Windu, one of the Jedi’s greatest warriors, leads a small unit of Jedi into battle shortly after the war begins, the Jedi must make peace with their new role, or be lost to the violence around them!

Review: Star Wars Rogue One 3.75 Inch Galen Erso

Hello Hero Club, this is Darkon633 and I am back with another toy review.  Today we will be looking at Galen Erso in the basic 3.75 Inch line for Rogue One. I personally thought it was quite surprising to see Galen Erso as a part of the basic 3.75 Inch toyline. While he isn’t an obscure character that would warrant a more surprising release in my opinion it is more towards the fact they Hasbro managed to release him before the line ended.  That being said the figure is a decent representation of the character from the film.  Galen Erso didn’t have many scenes in the overall film, however it is really nice to see a figure of him due to how important he is to the Star Wars lore.  Personally I am quite pleased with the final result especially since he includes a very nice release of a mouse droid that works well in scale for the 3.75 inch figures (whether it is a reissue of the older release, I digress). In conclusion I highly recommend getting this figure since he may be one of the most important characters in the entirety of the franchise. I got this from Entertainment Earth.

Doctor Aphra Wins Star Wars 3.75 Inch Vintage Collection Fan Vote

As the Star Wars Day festivities continue, fans of the 3.75 Inch Vintage Collection will be in for a treat in 2018 as the winner of the fan vote was none other than Doctor Aphra.  

For those who are aren’t familiar with the character, Doctor Chelli Lona Aphra is a new character that was introduced in the modern Marvel’s Star Wars comics.  She made her debut in Marvel’s Darth Vader comic series in 2016 and quickly became a fan favorite character in the new expanded universe.

Seeing as I just recently finished the main Vader story about a month or so ago I am quite excited to see a release of Doctor Aphra in the Vintage Collection.  Hopefully she will also be released in the 6 Inch Black Series as well.

Review: Star Wars 40th Anniversary 6 Inch Black Series R5-D4

Hello Hero Club this is Darkon633 and I am back with another toy review.  Today we will be looking at the Gamestop exclusive Star Wars 40th Anniversary 6 Inch Black Series R5-D4. It is stunning how many of the exclusive Star Wars figures (outside of the Target releases) are pretty much a luck of the draw.  At first I thought that this release wouldn’t be as hard as it was since it stayed in stock on Gamestop’s website for preorder for a decent amount of time. It is a shame how this was handled since the 6 Inch Black Series 40th Anniversary R5-D4 is quite an amazing figure. Being an astromech droid there isn’t a whole look of bells of whistles, however what makes the figure shine is really in it’s paint scheme. Overall I personally think that this figure is a much better release than R2-D2, which helps since it is about $2 more with no accessories.  In conclusion if you are fan of Astromech Droids than I highly recommend tracking one down if possible. I got this figure from my local Gamestop.

Review: Star Wars Droid Factory 2017 C1-10P “Chopper” Review

Hello Hero Club, this is Darkon633 and I am back with another toy review. Today we will be looking at the Droid Factory C1-10P “Chopper” figure that is exclusive to Disney Land Parks. C1-10P Chopper is a fantastic release in the Droid Factory line, which is a highly appreciated update to the character in 3.75 inch form.  The Hasbro figure was an okay figure, however this release proves how some extra effort can go a long way.  The articulation is impressive for a small astromech droid and I was quite impressed with the final product.  If you are fan of astromech droids or Chopper than I highly recommend hunting one down.

Review: Star Wars 6 Inch Black Series 40th Anniversary Legacy Pack

Hello Heroclub, this is Darkon633 and I am back with another toy review. Today we will be looking at the Star Wars 6 Inch 40th Anniversary Pack with Darth Vader. Finally having the Star Wars The Black Series 40th Anniversary Legacy Pack in hand I can personally say that it is a fantastic display piece for the 6 Inch Black Series figures. The included Darth Vader is also a great update to the character and I personally like it much better than the Empire/ Return of the Jedi version. While the actual display itself could have been made better it still looks really nice. If you are fan of the Star Wars 6 Inch Black Series figures and also the vintage style packaging than I highly recommend it.  I got this at my local target for $39.99.
