xx Toys "R" Us Reset Underway

September 15, 2014, 12:32:49 PM by curto

Stopped in at a local Toys "R" Us store today, and there's a huge reset for Star Wars Rebels taking place. Lots of merchandise being added (but no action figures yet), combining Hasbro, LEGO, Jakks Pacific, and other companies with the orange & white graphics. In addition, it also looks like the Marvel toys are being combined in a similar display. Take a peek at the plans for one of the end caps that were just laying around. Not sure if there's any NEW info here, but it's interesting nonetheless!

st Mos Eisley News Brief: The Streak Snapped!

August 24, 2014, 07:07:21 PM by Darth Spice
We find it sad that our 13-year run at Chicago Comic-Con ended this weekend as we decided it would be better served not attending. It is hard to believe outlets such as ours and even super fan groups such as the 501st and Rebel Legion would be asked to pay $800 to have a fan table!  The biggest loser in all of this are the fans who were delighted by the 1000's of costumers that attended this event and made it great over the years. We hope that Wizard World can get their act together and perhaps put together an event worth attending again someday. Until then we can remember when Hasbro, Gentle Giant and even major comic book companies used to attend. However until their ridiculous treatment of Star Wars fans takes a new direction, we will be comfortable with the decision to boycott Wizard World Comic Conventions.

st Mos Eisley News Brief: Rebels Premiere Telecast October 3rd!

August 20, 2014, 10:40:45 AM by Darth Spice
"Continuing the epic tradition of the legendary Star Wars saga, an exciting animated one-hour movie "Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion" will be available first to verified users on and the WATCH Disney XD app beginning  MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 29. WATCH Disney XD allows consumers to watch on tablet, phones, computer and set top boxes.

The global television debut of "Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion" is set for FRIDAY, OCTOBER 3 (9:00  p.m.,  ET/PT  in  the  U.S.) on  Disney  Channels  around  the  world, ushering  in  the series  "Star  Wars  Rebels"  beginning  MONDAY, OCTOBER 13 (9:00 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney XD.  The series will air in 34 languages across 163 countries in over 400 million households. The television movie garnered rave reviews at last month's San Diego Comic-Con fan event for its story (set between the events of Star Wars Episodes III and IV) and its look -- akin to the classic Star Wars trilogy.  The series designs are influenced by the work of original Star Wars concept artist Ralph McQuarrie.

The story unfolds during a dark time when the evil Galactic Empire is tightening its grip of power on the galaxy. Imperial forces have occupied a remote planet and are ruining the lives of its people. The motley but clever crew of the starship Ghost -- cowboy Jedi Kanan, ace pilot Hera, street-smart teenager Ezra, the "muscle" Zeb, warrior firebrand Sabine, and cantankerous old astromech droid Chopper -- is among a select few who are brave enough to stand against the Empire. Together, they will face threatening new villains, encounter colorful adversaries, embark on thrilling adventures and become heroes with the power to ignite a rebellion. 

"Star Wars Rebels" is created by Dave Filoni (Star Wars: The Clone Wars), Simon Kinberg (X-Men: Days of Future Past, Sherlock Holmes), and Carrie Beck. The Lucasfilm Animation production is also executive-produced by Filoni and Kinberg as well as Greg Weisman (Gargoyles). The talented voice cast includes Freddie Prinze Jr. as Kanan, Vanessa Marshall as Hera, Steve Blum as Zeb, Tiya Sircar as Sabine, Taylor Gray as Ezra, David Oyelowo as Agent Kallus and Jason Isaacs as the Inquisitor."

The multi-platform schedule in the U.S. is:

MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 29 "Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion" one-hour movie will be available to verified users on and the WATCH Disney XD app for smartphones and tablets. It will also be available on Disney Channel SVOD.

Friday, OCTOBER 3  Premiere telecast of the one-hour movie "Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion" (9:00 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney Channel.

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 4  "Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion" will be available on Disney XD VOD and for purchase through Apple iTunes, Amazon Instant Video and Google Play.

MONDAY, OCTOBER 6 "Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion" (8:00 p.m., ET/PT) premieres on Disney XD.

MONDAY, OCTOBER 13 "Star Wars Rebels" (9:00 p.m., ET/PT) series premieres on Disney XD.

TUESDAY, OCTOBER 14  "Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion" will be available to own on DVD in retailers nationwide. The DVD includes the movie, a free Ghost 3D model ship, four "Star Wars Rebels" shorts, plus a never-before-seen piece that takes you deeper into the world of "Star Wars Rebels" and the upcoming season.
