ThinkGeek has their first wave of Solo product out, and there’s no question about what the highlight is: The Lando cape. The pattern in the lining is inspired by Lando’s scarf.
You can now buy a Body Vibe replica of General Leia’s ring from The Force Awakens (which she also wears in The Last Jedi). The “signet ring” (per The Last Jedi: The Visual Dictionary) features two blue stones paired in a gold band. It’s avaliable on Amazon for $29.99.
Maybe we’ll see some replicas of the jewelry from The Last Jedi in 2019? Until then, keep your eyes on Etsy…
Vanity Fair has the scoop on The Last Jedi shoes from Christian Louboutin. There are four designs revealed: The Rose, the Amilyn Holdo, the Captain Phasma, and the Rey. A fifth pair, the Spaceship, will be unveiled at the film’s Los Angeles premiere on December 9
Columbia Sportswear is launching a limited edition Star Wars Echo Base collection. The three standard Han, Luke and Leia coats retail for $400 each and will available in limited quantities (only 1,980 of each) at certain brand retail locations in the U.S. and online on December 8.
A brown ‘archive’ edition of the Han coat will be an “extremely limited run,” signed by Harrison Ford himself. 100% of the proceeds from the sales will go to Conservation International. One of these will cost you even more – $1980.
Head under the cut for more pics!
Also making the rounds today was Daisy Ridley, who showed up Good Morning America and Live with Kelly and Ryan. She’ll be on The Tonight Show tonight, while John Boyega will be on all three shows tomorrow. Meanwhile, Mark Hamill was on The Ellen Degeneres Show today, where he talked about Carrie Fisher.
Her Universe’s new collections have launched at Torrid and Hot Topic, with many items inspired by The Last Jedi. They’re both beginning with some very different selections, but we have reason to believe (hope!) that all items will eventually span both stores. (I am really loving the Kylo Ren dress and the Leia cape sweatshirt.)
New footage spotted! A brief look at Kelly Marie Tran’s Rose Tico in action is a highlight of a spot for EDF Energy (okay…), while General Organa and Poe have a great exchange in a new commercial. (Another recent spot features new Finn footage!)
There’s also a great profile of Tran at Buzzfeed which is definitely worth a read. She talks about her background, Harry Potter, and Carrie Fisher in the gym. She teases that Rose has “has an interesting relationship with war.” She’s also one of The Hollywood Reporter’s Next Gen Talent picks.
It’s Daisy Ridley’s turn on publicity roundabout, and she’s chatting with Adam Driver for V Magazine. They discuss becoming “besties” on The Last Jedi set, The Force Awakens publicity weirdness and Murder on the Orient Express. The accompanying photos are VERY ’80s. (No Adam, but there’s British GQ for that.)
→ Meanwhile, Ridley is also over sorta-kinda-not-really talking about Rey’s parentage in Japan. /Film has the translation.
→ Some creature revelations from Neal Scanlan: Details on porgs, caretakers, droids and those crystal foxes.
→ Build-A-Bear has porgs. I repeat: Build-A-Bear has porgs! And some other stuff. But mostly porgs.
Force Friday officially begins in only a few hours, and today was a sheer flurry of announcements about the toys and other products that are coming out as we head towards the release of The Last Jedi.
