Galactic Royalty Collection

February 24, 2017

Elhoffer Design finally has for pre-order its Galactic Royalty collection, mostly pieces inspired by Padmé’s amazing wardrobe (and one piece based off of Leia’s Bespin gown from TESB).  Pick from the Galactic Eclipse Oversize Sweater ($68), Galactic Picnic Cardi ($55 + $25 if you want roses sewn onto the sweater), and the Galactic Twilight Dolman ($60).  First 50 orders will be delivered in time for SWCO; otherwise they will ship later in April.  These are pre-order prices and will go up after a few more weeks.

For the record, I ordered all three and I may get the Leia one too.

Regal Gown A-Line Dress

February 17, 2017

Independent fan fashion is showing more love for the prequels.  LadyJediScientist found this dress on Redbubble:

Yours for $65.00 but Redbubble has frequent discount promotions.  You can also get leggings with the same design from the same shop.

Hint, hint licensees and retailers:  fans will fill in the missing gaps.

Prequel Goodies News

January 19, 2017

I wish I’d jumped on this quickly but due to distractions such as work, I missed out on these exclusive prints by Eric Tan and sold by Bottleneck Gallery.  They went on sale Thursday at noon EST/9 a.m. PST for $50 apiece or $140 for the set and were gone in 10 minutes.  Sad face.  But it goes to show you, the prequels ARE popular and I hope licensees take note.

Bandai is going to release a Yoda figure this year.  You can switch out OT and PT heads and give him a cane or a lightsaber, depending upon your mood.

The Padmé Amidala (AOTC) figure from SH Figuarts is due out in June; pre-orders begin tomorrow.  (This one is MINE.)

Gentle Giant is taking pre-orders for a Jango Fett mini bust due out later this year.

More Funko Prequel Pops

January 9, 2017

In another episode of “Good News, Bad News,” Funko will produce four new Pops from the prequels but they are all store and/or convention exclusives.

First, this three-pack of Palpatine, Tarfful, and Utapau clone trooper exclusive to Walmart:

This should be out by the end of this month.

The fourth Funko Pop is a 442nd Siege Battalion Clone Trooper .  I don’t know when it’s coming out but collector Twitter account @MayTheFunkoBWY says it’s an exclusive for FYE and Emerald City Comic Con.

Hey, how about some prequel Pops that I can easily buy online or in any store?

 

New Stuff From UNIQLO

December 9, 2016

UNIQLO has made some cool and unique Star Wars t-shirts over the past couple of years.  It’s launching a whole lot more stuff to coincide with “Rogue One,” as evidenced by an event in London.  All  of the following photos are from Jedi News, which got to attend the party.  As you might imagine, most of the tees, jackets, patches, and pins are either from RO or the OT.  But a few new prequel tees managed to get included.

Movie Score Video & More About HU’s “Naboo Collection”

November 30, 2016

Pedro passed along this video from about a year ago about Sony’s “Star Wars: The Ultimate Vinyl Collection” of scores from Eps I-VI. It was an unboxing and Q&A session with movie score professionals:

The current episode (18) of the Galactic Fashion podcast features a long interview with Ashley Eckstein about Her Universe.  In it, she mentions the so-called Naboo collection we might see late next spring/summer.  It’s part of a vintage-themed planets line (she mentions Tatooine and Endor as other lines planned) and she discusses a Naboo dress design that features all kinds of stuff associated with it, including Anakin and Padmé.  I gotta have it!

Some Anakin News

November 22, 2016

First off, Star Wars The Prequel Trilogy Facebook page posted an image of SH Figuarts AOTC Anakin figure coming May 2017.

Clone Wars alum Matt Lanter has a hit with NBC’s “Timeless” and is currently featured in People magazine as part of its Sexiest Man Alive issue.  Here’s the kicker…he named his dog after his former padawan Ahsoka:

No word if she gets called Snips when she barks too much.

Finally, the Christmas comedy “Jingle All The Way” was released 20 years ago today.  I remember going to see that, “Space Jam,” and “Star Trek:  First Contact” (also released 20 years ago this week) just to see the Star Wars Special Edition trailers attached to them.   Little did any of us know that just a short time later, Arnold Schwarzenegger’s son in the movie, Jake Lloyd, would be part of the saga himself.
