Sneak Peek At Black Series Padmé Amidala

October 30, 2018

Comic Con Paris dropped a preview of the 6-inch Black Series Padmé Amidala figure, in her AOTC tighty-whites wear, due to be released in 2019.

The interesting thing is this quote from Hasbro’s Steve Evans:

“Padmé is one of many figures that we will look to represent in 6-inch scale from the prequel trilogy, which over the years has seen a renewed swell of support and fandom”

Prequel Pix At Star Wars Authentics

September 7, 2018

Star Wars Authentics is a subsidiary of Topps and it has the current license to sell Star Wars autographs and produce official photos.  Not only have prequel alum like Hayden Christensen, Ian McDiarmid, Ray Park, Temuera Morrison, and TCW’s James Arnold Taylor have autographs available, you can now get still photos from all of the prequel flicks and The Clone Wars.

(As an aside, back in July I was shopping at the SW Authentics booth at Comic Con and chatted with one of the reps.  They’re working on getting more prequel alumni autographs and may land some new names soon.)
