A Long Time Ago, In A Galaxy Far, Far, Away…
Star Wars! The science fiction entertainment juggernaut that is ‘Star Wars’ is as popular as ever, so it should come as no major surprise to see some awesome new exclusive figures that are coming our way soon!
First up is an all new 6″ scale figure of General Veers figure that is coming exclusively to Walgreens stores this summer! Veers will include removable AT-AT Commander Armor so you can change his look based on your preference. General Veers is expected to hit Walgreens stores later this month, so keep your eyes peeled!
And the big reveal for ‘Star Wars’ fans that are heading to San Diego Comic-Con, Hasbro has announced their new SDCC 2018 exclusive 3.75″ scale ‘Star Wars’ Doctor Aphra Comic 3-Pack! This set includes Doctor Aphra (who won last year’s fan poll and will also be available as a solo stand-alone figure at retail later) along with the ‘evil’ droids BT-1 and 0-0-0 (aka Triple Zero). This set will come in vintage style packaging and will set you back a whopping $49.99 (which seems a bit steep for three 3.75″ figures, especially when one is a half-sized droid). Check out the full product announcement from Hasbro below!

Gentle Giant Descends On SDCC
As per usual, the team at Gentle Giant is prepared to face San Diego Comic-Con head-on with a number of awesome new convention exclusives! This week we have our first look at at least three of them and they’re coming from some of the biggest franchises the science fiction genre has to offer!

Next is a massive new ‘must have’ item for ‘Star Wars’ fans in the form of 12″ tall Jumbo Kenner Boba Fett figure from ‘Star Wars: Return Of The Jedi’! The Jumbo Kenner Star Wars line from Gentle Giant are super-sized versions of the original 3.75″ figures from the 70’s and 80’s packaging in special resealable clamshell packaging so that you’re able to display them in or out of the box.

Mezco Possesses Your Collection
The power of Mezco compels you to check out the latest figure in their stylized horror line dubbed the Mezco Designer Series, Regan from ‘The Exorcist’!

Regan is anticipated to hit the market this winter with an MSRP of $30.
