Whether you realize it or not, this is a very special moment in Star Wars history. Take a moment and enjoy it. Tomorrow everything changes. For the first time in sixteen years we will see things we haven't even imagined as the teaser for the first film in the third trilogy in the Star Wars saga is given to us to dissect for the next few months. That statement is what makes the subject of this edition of eT so relevant. When this mock up was created, no one (really) knew who this dude was or what part he'd play in the overall story. Follow this link to check out the extremely cool Darth Maul CinemAction Packaging mock up and ask yourself, who are we going to be introduced to this weekend that is entirely new to the overall story...

Rebelscum reader Jonny from Northern California sent us the image linked above of an unfortunate (yet still interesting) error on a Rebels Saga Legends SL01 Stormtrooper. Click the image above to have a closer look.
Posted by D_Martin on November 26, 2014 at 02:40 PM CST |
After looking closely at the figure we reported as a card back variation the other day it became clear that it is most likely an error more than anything else. The factory applied sticker is identical to the one on all the North American Tri-Logo Rebels Saga Legends SL12 Snowtrooper figures currently at retail. Chances are good that that the sticker meant for the SL12 figure accidentally applied to the SL01 figure. If you have an opinion on this either way, let us know.

Poll
Next September marks the twentieth anniversary of Hasbro's Kenner The Power Of The Force action figure collection. The line introduced a new generation of children to the wonderful world of Star Wars toys and ushered in the modern collectibles we all enjoy today. Our ever-inquisitive Probe Droid is actively searching all corners of the galaxy to find out if there is interest in products that commemorate this very significant 1995 release.
I'd be into a Hasbro The Lost Line style assortment
I'd love to see Gentle Giant make a Jumbo Kenner 1995 Luke Skywalker
I'm behind both of these ideas!
I got started in 1995, but I have no interest in such a concept.
It isn't for me.
