StarWars.com’s Collectibles panel liveblog. Dan Brooks strikes again with this recap of what’s coming from eFX, Gentle Giant Studios, Kotobukiya, and Sideshow. Kotobukiya has a Luke and Leia ARTFX+ set coming up, plus their next Bishoujo will be a female stormtrooper. Gentle Giant has an Amidala mini-bust and a Leia as Bouschh jumbo retro figure in the pipeline.
The Hasbro panel at SDCC seems to have been, well, a Hasbro panel. Dan Brooks liveblogged it for StarWars.com, and above you see the female figures: The Black Series Medal Ceremony Leia will be in the 3.75-inch line, and for Rebels, Hera and Sabine each come in two-packs with troopers.
Pictures from the Her Universe Geek Couture Fashion Show. Popsugar has clear looks t most of the fashions from last night’s show at SDCC.
Hallmark’s 2015 Star Wars ornaments. Rebelscum has a gallery of pictures from Hallmark’s booth and our first look at next year’s Christmas ornaments. They include Yoda and Luke, Admiral Ackbar, a Y-wing, and a pair from Rebels.
The Rebels panel at SDCC just wrapped up, and while there wasn’t really anything I’d consider huge news, they did debut a brand new trailer with quite a bit of new footage – and a few surprises.
Several clips were shown – here’s one:
Another is up on Entertainment Weekly.
There’s also another pre-panel video interview with Filoni, Prinze and Marshall on IGN.
And finally, tweets from the panel below the cut! Although there was a moment when someone questioned Tiya Sircar’s ‘geek cred’ (really, dudes?) it seems to have gone rather well.
Rebels cast speaks at Comic-Con. It’s not panel time yet (6pm PDT/9pm EDT) but Vanessa Marshall, Tiya Sircar, Steve Blum, and Taylor Gray answered a few fan questions live a little bit ago – and you can catch up at the link!
Last night’s SDCC preview and Hitfix/Rebels party seems to have been big hits – at right, our first look at the Sabine and Hera figures from none other than Dave Filoni himself. Yakface and Jedi Temple Archives have Hasbro booth pics for you toy die-hards.
Hitfix themselves and The Daily Dot have writeups of the party and TFN collected preview night and party tweets. And for those who want to look beyond Star Wars, /Film has nice roundup of some other things on the floor.
On StarWars.com this morning, Mary Franklin shares some pictures from the Lucasfilm Pavilion at San Diego Comic-Con. (Though not the one above – that’s from her Twitter.) The con officially begins tonight, with the Rebels panel on Thursday and three book panels on Friday.
Episode VII news is not expected, unless it comes via the grapevine (or Mary’s video wall, but that’s a long shot.) And while the rumor mill is saying we might get an announcement of a Princess Leia comic from Marvel, I’m not sure where that would happen: At the A New Dawn panel, which seems focused on Del Rey? None of Marvel’s own panels seem to fit the bill.
Rumor: Marvel making a Princess Leia comic? Bleeding Cool seems to think so, and that it will be revealed at San Diego Comic Con. (But: Third title? What are the other two?)
A new trailer for Rebels showed up in the middle of the night, because why not, I guess. This one contains some new footage in addition to what we’ve seen in the first few clips and trailers, plus a date of ‘October.’
They’re also having a preview screening at SDCC.
