We already knew what this year’s Star Wars Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments would be, but the official Dream Book is online now. (Star Wars is on page 77.) The standard ornaments are The Rise of Lord Vader, Scout Trooper, the Sandcrawler, LEGO Boba Fett and the Cantina Band. There’s also a motion-detecting Santa Yoda peekbuster, and a Wampa figure that will only be available at San Diego Comic Con.

Her Universe boutique at Darth’s Mall
Dresses at the Darth’s Mall
My Hero Jewelry Collection
Here’s your first look at the Her Universe boutique at Darth’s Mall (complete with dressing room,) plus the My Hero display and new dresses waiting for buyers at Disney World’s Hollywood Studios for Star Wars Weekends. The new collection we saw last week is debuting there, and most will be available online as well.
The first Weekend of the year begins Friday with guests Ahmed Best, Peter Mayhew, and Vanessa Marshall.
Her Universe’s new ‘My Hero” collection all feature R2-D2 and will debut at Weekends and on the Her Universe site on May 19th. A key chain from the collection – limited to 300 – will be the Weekends exclusive.
There’s a whole bunch of new tees, tanks and dresses as well, including a great Han Solo dress, two new hooded tanks and (finally!) an plus-size logo tee. Check them out under the cut.
The day’s merchandise offerings. It’s the true meaning of the season! Santa Maul would be proud.
First look at SDCC-exclusive Jabba figure. The Black Series Hutt comes with his hookah and Salacious Crumb.
Her Universe has added new tops, a 77 Logo tee and a Vintage Poster Racerback tank (both $28,) plus there’s a mystery tee ($10.)
Many of the older items are on sale – most of the t-shirts will only run you only $15, and the Mara and Jaina shirts are both only $16.80.
This is a last chance sale for some of the shirts – and I have to wonder if that means our last chance for the EU ones – and the sale will last through May 5.
Okay, this is cute. I’m not made of stone.
has details on May the 4th at the Disney Store, which is apparently why Disney brought bloggers out this week
… They did get a nifty tour
I’m not really seeing anything exciting in the new products, but that’s a) not my beat and b) there’s still a day left to the event. So hopefully there’s something more exciting waiting in the wings. (Or not, as the case may be. Oh well.)
We saw Sabine’s official reveal this morning, and although we’re still waiting for Hera’s, Hasbro confirmed with Newsarama’s Lucas Siegel that action figures of both Rebels ladies are coming, and will be unveiled at SDCC.
There’s been some blowback to the concerns over the lack of women showed in the first wave of Hasbro Rebels toys. But together with the ‘for boys’ nature of Disney XD and the apparent ‘ladies last’ spacing of the character reveals, it’s really felt like the female characters – and thus female fans – are there as an afterthought. (Is it really still not a given that women and girls like action?)
Yes, we know ‘this is how it is.’ Yes, we know that ‘it’s all here to sell toys.’ Yes, we know that’s ‘what advertisers want.’ And that’s exactly why we’re fighting so hard over this. This is our first major rollout since Disney took the wheel, and this is an uphill battle.
Ashley and David Eckstein introduce the latest item from Her Universe: An “I Love You/I Know” necklace set:
The necklaces are available now, individually ($30) or bundled ($50) with a Han/Leia tee.
Two of Jeffrey Brown’s illustrations from Darth Vader and Son and Vader’s Little Princess come to life – or at least 3-D – in these new maquettes from Gentle Giant.
