Ep VII Rumor. More Flashbacks And Some Guy With Terrible Skin Making An Appearance?

Over the weekend Latino Review shared another Episode VII rumor and this time ( I wont apologize for 'spoilers' as this is just pure speculation) they are suggesting that Palpatine will make a return...


Good, good...I can get another paycheck.

Could it be a clone? Maybe, but their suggestion is more akin to flashbacks which rumors have already strongly hinted at with a young Leia, Darth and Inquisitors abound...

What's your thoughts? Want Palpatine back for Ep VII? Where is that Black Series Six inch Palpatine and why is it taking so long to see?

How The Star Wars Black Series Cantina Showdown Should Have Been.


Glen Morris from the UK shares his Han & Greedo with custom chairs and parts with us, and this IMHO is exactly how the Cantina showdown should have came! Charge $10 more the chairs and tables, (it was and is $39.99) heck even $20 more and I'm sure at least several thousand would have sold in-a-heartbeat. Instead we got a really crappy cardboard cut out set that even die hard Black Series peeps like me will only buy on clearance.

A really wasted opportunity by Hasbro and Toys R Us, but great to see that real fans know how it should be done...

What's your thoughts on this? Cardboard crap-tastic by Hasbro or one you'd have paid $50+ for, if the real chairs and table were included? 

Star Wars Rebels: “Entanglement” Short Feat Zeb And A Lot Of Stormtroopers

Another day, another Rebels Short.
In “Entanglement,” a special Star Wars Rebels short, Zeb fails to meet with Kanan at a specified rendezvous point…and instead finds himself joyfully battling many, many stormtroopers.



Makes more sense now why we have this two pack!
