Two months to Legacy comic

Dark Horse is soliciting Legacy #0 in the new Previews. There’s nothing in the mag that we haven’t already seen, but this is a good time to get your local comic shop to put you on the hold list.

For those unfamiliar with the industry, Previews is the catalog for Diamond, the largest comic book distributor in North America. What’s solicited in Previews (usually) ships two months later. That means that comic shops are ordering for May 2006 now.

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.
