It wouldn't be a day of the week without another Star Wars leak of some kind. In the lead up to Force Friday, the Sept. 4 launch day for all Star Wars: The Force Awakens merchandise, more and more action figures and collectibles are finding their way into the wild. That's one of the disadvantages to releasing said merchandise to the retailers early so they can properly prepare their action plans for the big day in a few weeks.
While the silence from Hasbro with regards to what to expect from Force Friday had been deafening, these past few days have proved very fruitful for Star Wars collectors salivating for a glimpse at what was coming down the pipe. Several eBay listings popped up today (captured by YakFace) offering potential buyers the very first opportunities to buy new Star Wars: The Force Awakens figures before they actually hit retail shelves on Sept. 4. More importantly, they also gave us our first look at the planned 3.75" figures coming from Hasbro in just a few weeks.
This September is home to arguably the most anticipated shopping day of the year for many longtime Star Wars fans. Hasbro, Disney and Lucasfilm have appointed that day as "Force Friday," which will be the very first day merchandise from Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be available for purchase. If you've visited a Toys 'R Us in the past month, you may have spotted the countdown clock, ticking down to 12:01AM on Sept. 4, 2015, which will be when hundreds of stores nationwide open their doors for thousands of fans eager to get their hands on Force Awakens merchandise.
To this point, much of the upcoming slate of releases for the Force Awakens have been shrouded in secrecy. There have been hints and teases as to what to expect, but until very recently, no one outside of the major merchandisers and manufacturers really knew what was in store. That all changed about a week ago when the very first leaks started springing from the good ship Star Wars. While we've only seen a few Hasbro products in blurry pictures to this point, today Amazon (which is always good for a few leaks) accidentally pushed the pre-order pages for all of Funko's planned Force Awakens Pop figures.
Living in the Northeast can sometimes make you feel like you're stuck on the planet Hoth for months at a time. It's probably appropriate then that during this particularly frigid winter Sideshow Collectibles released new Star Wars sixth-scale figures for Luke Skywalker and Han Solo based on their appearances in the early moments of Empire Strikes Back.
Bundled up and ready to hunker down for the deep freeze, Han and Luke aren't just the latest characters to join Sideshow's continually expanding Star Wars line, they just might be the best the company's produced yet.
Fans of the Star Wars: The Clone Wars series have been looking for some closure, and now they're finally going to get it. The popular animated series will return for a sixth and final season, titled "The Lost Missions," after an agreement between Netflix and Lucasfilm/Disney. All 13 episodes of season six will be available on Netflix on March 7, as well as the the previous five seasons and the feature film.
It's been a good year for fans of the original Star Wars trilogy and Dark Horse comics. There's the new Star Wars series by Brian Wood and Carlos D'Anda that takes place between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back, (the first issue of which CA's own Dylan Todd reviewed here), and now J.W. Rinzler (The Making of The Empire Strikes Back)and Mike Mayhew (perennial Best Art Ever This Week favorite)are teaming to adapt
In a move that's caused seismic shifts in the entertainment business (and on Twitter, naturally) the Walt Disney Company has announced an agreement to acquire George Lucas' Lucasfilm Ltd. in a stock and cash transaction worth approximately $4.05 billion. "It's now time for me to pass Star Wars on to a new generation of filmmakers," sai
Remember that scene in "A Charlie Brown Christmas" where Chuck gets down on himself for never receiving any cards in the mail come holiday time? Well, he really should have considered working for George Lucas

I'm suffering through a terrible sinus infection and trying to find things to keep me entertained and I find this link on a celebrity gossip site of all places. I'm assuming this made the rounds last week at the Star Wars Celebration in LA, but I was late in checking out news from there because...
