st Rumors of new Entertainment Earth exclusive Black Series 6" 4-pack coming soon!

September 25, 2016, 09:28:22 PM by dj121
Recent reports coming in show what appears to be a new 2016 Entertainment Earth exclusive 4-pack. The exact line up has not been revealed, but these rumors are pointing to a "Rainbow" pack of Phase 2 Clones including a 212th, 442nd, 501st and a Shocktrooper.

This could be a great troop builder set for those of you who have been waiting for multiple clones. There is a release date, an item number and a price all listed in the photo, however when searching the site, nothing came up. This has not been officially confirmed, so as of now, this stays in the "rumor" category. We will update this post if more information becomes available.

st Hasbro offers Rogue One "Value" vehicles Updated!

September 17, 2016, 07:46:47 AM by dj121
Thanks to a report from our friends over at, we learned that Hasbro will be releasing smaller "Value" vehicles. The first appears to be a scaled down version of the TIE Striker. The ship is smaller overall, lacks figure compatibility and the dreaded Nerf feature has been removed. The price point should be lower, but with little to no additional play value, will this new line be a success? Having the same vehicles available at two prices at the same time just seems like an unusual approach. And a great way to confuse the average consumer!

UPDATE! X-Wing also revealed in this line.

A team of Star Wars superfans today revealed the new toy line for the highly anticipated "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" movie via a series of fan-made animated shorts launching on the Star Wars YouTube channel. As part of a competition in collaboration with creative network Tongal, a team was assembled to write, direct and produce original, fan-made stop-motion shorts starring key toys from the new line to kick off a global UGC contest that asks fans to share their own "Rogue Stories."

"These fan-created shorts are a tribute to the incredible content that the Star Wars community posts online every day," said Jimmy Pitaro, Chairman, Disney Consumer Products and Interactive Media. "The Go Rogue campaign was designed with Star Wars fans in mind - we want them to be front and center in the run up to 'Rogue One' by imagining and creating their own Rogue Stories."

When Star Wars news breaks, many fans worldwide react by sharing their own videos online. According to new research, fans posted over 838,000 pieces of Star Wars-related content on YouTube in the past year alone, which is more than 2,296 per day and nearly 96 per hour. Star Wars fan-generated content is also incredibly popular, accruing more than 16.3 billion views in the last year - equivalent to everyone in the world viewing at least two fan-created videos.

Winning entries from around the globe will be chosen by a panel including "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story" director Gareth Edwards. Beginning September 30, teen and adult fans can enter the Go Rogue contest on In addition to the global contest on, in the U.S. and parts of Canada, kids 8-12 can participate on Winners will be invited to Lucasfilm in San Francisco to attend a screening of "Rogue One," and see their short story on the big screen.
