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.
Welcome back to All For the Wookiee, where we take a look at the recent Star Wars universe offerings from Marvel and pick the most Star Wars-ish moments to share with you, dear reader. We’re back in black with the second issue of Kieron Gillen and Salvador Larroca‘s new ongoing series about everybody's favorite Sith Lord, Darth Vader.
'Star Wars' illustrator and designer Ralph McQuarrie is responsible for some of the most iconic imagery in the pop culture and the history of movies. McQuarrie designed the look of many of the Star Wars characters including Darth Vader, C-3PO, R2-D2 and the Stormtroopers, as well as locations like the Death Star and Tattooine. In fact, it was McQuarrie's artwork that eventually sold 20th Century Fox on the idea of letting George Lucas actually make a 'Star Wars' movie.
If you're looking for a diverse line of toys that not only spans a variety of licenses and genres, but also puts your brain to the test, Lego's Toy Fair 2015 offerings might be of interest to you.

Although cosplay has been present for decades within the comics, anime, and sci-fi/fantasy fandoms, social media has played an integral role in the thriving communities of costuming that exist, such as Cosplay.com and the Superhero Costuming Forum. Over the years, the cosplay community has evolved into a creative outlet for many fans to establish and showcase some impressive feats of homemade disguise, craftsmanship, and sartorial superheroics at conventions.
In honor of the caped crusaders of the convention scene, ComicsAlliance has created Best Cosplay Ever (This Week), an ongoing collection of some of the most impeccable, creative, and clever costumes that we’ve discovered and assembled into a super-showcase of pure fan-devoted talent.
Welcome back to All For the Wookiee, where we take a look at the recent Star Wars universe offerings from Marvel and pick the most Star Wars-ish moments to share with you, dear reader. Today we're ready to take on the Dark Lord of the Sith himself in the first issue of Kieron Gillen and Salvador Larocca's new ongoing series, Darth Vader.
Over the years, we here at ComicsAlliance have brought you definitive rankings of the various comics-related valentines parents can buy for their kids at their local pharmacies and big-box stores. We sure have had a lot of fun cracking jokes about mass murderer General Zod wishing kids an enjoyable day and Spider-Man's flying motorcycle.
When Editor-in-Chief Andrew Wheeler threw a twenty in my face and told me, "You've got the valentines beat this year, Wilson," I thought that's what I'd be doing. Cranking out a few yuks about some cheap novelties. Little did I know that I would be taking a trip...down the rabbit hole.
Marvels' Star Wars line has gotten off to a strong start, with the first two powerhouse installments of Jason Aaron and John Cassaday's Star Wars offering up some of the most exciting issues of space wizard comics we've read in a long time. If that wasn't enough, the premiere issue of Kieron Gillen and Salvador Larroca's Darth Vader drops today, promising even more thrills, spills, chills and black-armored grills in that galaxy far, far away.
As great as other Star Wars comics have been, these issues have felt the Star-Warsiest in a long time, prompting us to launch this new feature, All For the Wookiee, where we take a look at the recent Star Wars universe offerings from Marvel and pick the most Star Wars-ish moments to share with you, dear reader. Spoilers follow. You have been warned.
Everyone's favorite feisty princess headlines a new comic from Marvel out next week. In Princess Leia #1, readers will follow Leia's story immediately following the events of Star Wars IV: A New Hope. As part of Marvel's all-new Star Wars publishing program, this book is a new entry point for readers that seems to require little to no knowledge of anything beyond the movies. Writer Mark Waid and artist Terry Dodson promised we'd see a lot of political intrigue and action, plus Leia's "take-charge attitude and her justified unwillingness to be mansplained to," when we spoke with them in July.
For many collectors, Star Wars is the license that got them into collecting action figures. Since there's hardly been a time when Star Wars figures weren't being made, the fanbase has a real affinity for lesser-known characters getting their moments in the clamshell spotlight. The less screen time a character has, the more fans want a figure to commemorate his obscurity.
Though there's been no shortage of clone troopers over the years, the various divisions of the Grand Army of the Republic have hardly been part of the on-screen action. Sure, we've seen countless grunts on the frontlines in both the films, games and television series, but it's rare to spend any significant amount of time with specific divisions like the airborne or scout troopers, or even the ordnance specialists. That's why it makes complete sense Sideshow Collectibles' latest figure would be based on a trooper that was seen just twice during the six seasons of Star Wars: The Clone Wars.
