Convention updates

AICN reports from WonderCon. Not much news, but confirmation that Celebration 4 is still in consideration for 2007.

Of more interest may be RebelScum’s coverage of Toy Fair – they have galleries of many of the new toys coming out, including Gentle Giant’s super cool Star Wars Animated line, which are original trilogy figures done in the style of the Clone Wars cartoon. The chioces are a little odd – Vader, Leia, Boba Fett, and… an Ithorian?

It also appears there’s a Mara Jade mini-bust coming out, the first Mara figure over an inch tall since the POTF2 figure back in ’98.

    Wow. I don’t know why, but that Gentle Giant Animated line looks fantastic to me!

    Can’t afford it. Can’t afford it….

    And a Mara mini-bust! That one I’d be willing to splurge on.

    I too really like the Animated line….FYI the Ithorian isnot Momaw Nadon from the Cantina in EP4, but Roron Corobb from Clone Wars Vol2.

    I love the style of the Clone Wars- so I may have to look into picking up this series of figures. I’m hoping like crazy they do a C4 in 2007– I am absolutely there if they do!

    As for the Mara mini-bust– while I’m excited to see anything Mara Jade, for crying out loud- doesn’t the girl wear ANYTHING else? Yes, I’m still annoyed because sleeveless = lack of places to hide a holdout blaster. :)

    OOM-30: Well, that explains what he’s doing there. I thought it was rather odd. No Luke, no Han, but a random Ithorian?

    eliz: She has the pink saber, too. :D
