I can hear the job from around the web right now. Hats of to the guys at JTA for confirming that. If you haven't seen their live blog head there now!

Our friends at JTA are doing a live blog of the SDCC Hasbro Panel!

Click here to see them showcase all the great news as it happens. You know Paul and Chuck and the gang will sniff out what we like best.

Jedidefender shows a great SDCC Hallmark Display...
-- Posted by Tamer on Friday, July 25 2014
Well we are counting down the time till we get to hear about the Hasbro Star Wars Presentation and I am passing the time taking a look at some of the new Star Wars Hallmark Ornaments. I can see at least one of those I will be after. See the full size image here.

Mark Hamill talks about the new Star Wars...
-- Posted by Tamer on Friday, July 25 2014
Daggone it was great to see him back in the swing of the Star Wars Movies again after so many years. He even talked about growing the "contractual beard". Good stuff folks. Here is the link to the main article.

Banthaskull shows a larger Target Planogram!
-- Posted by Tamer on Friday, July 25 2014
Our friends at Banthaskull.com get an "exclusive look at the Target reset planogram for the action figure pegs of the Star Wars section." I must say it was nice to see some expansion even if its just a little. Maybe we get to have a new hope now!

Even more REBELS Footage...
-- Posted by Tamer on Friday, July 25 2014
"In this San Diego Comic-Con 2014 exclusive Star Wars Rebels clip, Kanan squares off against the Empire's powerful Inquisitor, who seeks to destroy the Jedi and Ezra." At this pace with just the trailers it looks like we will have seen the first two or three episodes. And we have to wait until October!

Here is another new REBELS clip...
-- Posted by Tamer on Friday, July 25 2014
"In this San Diego Comic-Con 2014 exclusive Star Wars Rebels clip, Ezra is on the run from the Empire until a friend appears to rescue him...with a rather surprising getaway vehicle. Scheduled to premiere in October 2014 as a one-hour special telecast on Disney Channel, Star Wars Rebels will be followed by a series on Disney XD channels around the world." Click here to go the official YouTube Channel.

REBELS is seeing a ton of new video updating!
-- Posted by Tamer on Friday, July 25 2014
Can REBELS get here fast enough. This is a post from the Facebook Site, but I am seeing a lot of activity on YouTube as well.

UPDATE: You can see some great McQuarrie and Kenner nods in this video. From the McQuarrie C3PO to good ole Hammerhead there are some awesome classic nods in this one. I think they probably just hooked a bunch of OT folks with that video update.

What a great time to get into Star Wars Costuming and 1:1 Scale!
-- Posted by Tamer on Friday, July 25 2014
I have been going through Rebelscum's great eFX Gallery and am absolutely loving that new Stormtrooper Armor they are showing. I would also be remiss if I didn't feature their Anovos Gallery as between that Darth Vader and Sand Trooper I don't see how any avid Star Wars Costumer is gonna be able to resist. That Vader even has a cool magnet feature to ensure the top of the bucket doesn't come off!

Kualan is previewing the next chapter of Tales From the Clone Wars...
-- Posted by Tamer on Friday, July 25 2014
It looks like its Mace Windu to the rescue for our beleaguered heroes after Dooku and Grievous got up to no good at all in the last issue. Click here to get a small taste of what is to come. And if you haven't read the latest chapter make sure you scroll up! This would just be a great way to pass the time this morning till we get to hear about the SW Hasbro Presentation and any new SDCC News in general!

Primitive Todd is back with a story...
-- Posted by Tamer on Friday, July 25 2014
"Hi all. My New Republic Commando idea is now slowly turning into a short story. The next part being using the commandos to extract a downed reconnaissance Y-Wing pilot near an Imp. outpost. The Y-Wing shown is an older one that I decided to modify/partially melt to simulate turbolaser damage. You will see more of that Y-Wing soon." It looks like he has the start of some great fan fiction here.

I-am-Boba-Fett is back with a new custom update already!
-- Posted by Tamer on Friday, July 25 2014
He has really been on fire these past few weeks! "Here are some pics of a custom TWILEK FEMALE BODYGUARD figure that I made. Her head tails,ears, and headdress are all sculpted with greenstuff. I also made her staff from three pieces of plastic tubing joined together and sanded to blend to look like one solid piece. I then sculpted the ends of her staff with greenstuff. I gave her jumpboots like Cad Bane. This figure is based on a Star Wars miniatures gamepiece with added touches by me to enhance her into a more interesting custom figure." I would say she fits right at home in our SW Verse just fine.
