SDCC, a time of extreme silliness really as we cram an entire year of toys, movies and comics into... a weekend. It's been a bit mental for me outside of the toy world with some overseas travel/holidays and moving apartment in the last three weeks so keeping up is even harder but some great new photos from great sites and friends at Jedi Defender & Rebelscum to name just two are really worth sharing.
Loads more if non Star Wars is your thing at a very broad high quality gallery from ToyArk.com
Dive in and enjoy!

Another upcoming scene from Star Wars Rebels, an extended look at the fight with The Inquisitor, Many his teeth are like a Gerbil! I know they are supposed to protrude as per species but will take a while to get used to. Thoughts on the battle and that blade? (And the teeth!)
+Star Wars YouTube just launched what has to be the BEST Rebels trailer so far for #SDCC
Amongst great looking battles, characters and visuals we see R2-D2 & C-3PO. Take a look to get a sneak peek at what's to come in the first season of Star Wars Rebels, including clips of the Inquisitor, Ezra's Jedi training, and the great looking vehicles and one female Jedi you'll know.
Scheduled to première in October 2014 as a one-hour special telecast on Disney Channel, Star Wars Rebels will be followed by a series on Disney XD channels around the world.
p.s. Did you spot Ralph McQuarrie Threepio?
