Hot on the heels of the new Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker figures from Star Wars: Attack of the Clones coming to the Black Series line, another batch of figures inspired by the Battle of Geonosis will be coming in the spring of 2020 too. Count Dooku and a couple of Jedi Masters will be coming to shelves, as well as a different kind of Battle Droid.
On top of that, the Star Wars Vintage Collection (which is the only way that the classic style of 3.75 inch figures are being kept alive) will be adding some figures that will make fans of The Clone Wars animated series very happy too.
Check out the new 2020 Star Wars Black Series figures and Vintage Collection additions below. Read More »
Hasbro has been releasing a great line of quality lightsaber replicas in their Star Wars Force FX Elite line-up of elegant weapons from a more civilized age. While several versions of lightsabers for main characters like Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Kylo Ren have been released over the years, some characters are just now having their weapons released for fans to collect. But a recent announcement from Hasbro at The Saló del Manga de Barcelona (an anime and manga convention in Spain) has revealed new lightsaber replicas for the Jedi alien Kit Fisto and the Dathomirian Sith assassin Asajj Ventress.

Last summer, Star Wars fans had their world rocked when a surprise announcement signaled the return of the animated series The Clone Wars. Now we’re much close to the show’s comeback, this time by way of Disney+, and a new trailer has revealed the return of a certain Jedi.
Star Wars: The Clone Wars season seven is bringing back Ahsoka Tano (Ashley Eckstein), who left behind her master Anakin Skywalker and the rest of the Jedi Council to venture out on her own. The full trailer shows where she finds some new friends, but it also dives even further into the titular war, showing familiar Jedi in battle, the Clone Troopers by their side, and a villain that fans will be excited to see all over again. Watch the Star Wars The Clone Wars season 7 trailer below. Read More »
The weather is finally getting warmer, and that means more time outside. But you can always set aside part of your day for a little bit of Netflix. Thankfully, there’s not a mass exodus of TV shows and movies leaving Netflix, but we’ve picked out some of the ones you might want to watch before they disappear from the library, including a bunch of James Bond titles, an animated series that will disappear from streaming for months, arguably Michael Mann‘s best movie, and more.

Star Wars Resistance is coming this fall to Disney XD. However, we still don’t know a whole lot about the series. So far we’ve only gotten a brief synopsis of the story and a small amount of artwork from the anime-inspired series. If you’re hoping to get answers from series creator Dave Filoni, he’s not ready to spill the beans yet…and he might not always be the best person to get that information from anyway.
Dave Filoni has revealed that he won’t be quite as involved with Star Wars Resistance as he was on the previous animated series Star Wars Rebels. Of course, that makes perfect sense since now that we know The Clone Wars will be making a comeback with new episodes, and that will keep him from being the Star Wars Resistance showrunner. Find out what Filoni had to say below. Read More »
On Thursday afternoon, Lucasfilm presented its 10th Anniversary Celebration of Star Wars: The Clone Wars at San Diego Comic-Con International. The big news revealed at the end of the panel is that Disney is bringing The Clone Wars back from the dead for a 12-episode season on Disney’s upcoming streaming service. You can read more about that and watch the trailer here.
The rest of the presentation was a look back at the beloved animated series with a panel that included creator Dave Filoni, producer Athena Portillo, actors Ashley Eckstein and Matt Lanter and composer Kevin Kliner. The panel featured stories from the show’s origins and was filled with concept sketches from Dave Filoni, most of which have never been seen before, some showing moments and ideas that never made it into the series. Keep reading to check them out.

In certain circles, I’m sure – among those who don’t know an elf from an Ewok – cosplay is considered weird.
Even for me, a self-identified geek, the world of cosplay always seemed to be the ultimate boss level reserved for uber-nerds only. After all, I don’t possess the crafting skills necessary to construct a convincing and functional costume, and I certainly don’t have the confidence required to strut about in public in a leotard or green body paint or fake armor or alien headpieces.
But thanks to cheerful internet message boards with step-by-step instructionals and my budding patronage of Jo-Ann’s Fabric and Craft store, I realized that I’m craftier than I originally thought. As for the confidence? It turns out I had that backwards all along.

The successful television spin-off has a high wire act to maintain. It has to differentiate itself from its source material while maintaining enough of what fans love so they’ll come along with it in the first place. But for every Better Call Saul there are a dozen Joeys – spin-offs that fail right from the start. With the former returning for its third season, let’s take a look at ten spin-offs that were just as good (if not better) than their parent series.
