On Clone Wars Conversations, that is:

Smuggler’s Bounty Jedi Box Trailer

August 4, 2017

Late last week Funko released a trailer billing its upcoming Jedi box set of Pop figures.  They haven’t revealed yet what’s in the set but the trailer is pretty prequel-licious:

Because I’m Too Tired…

July 21, 2017

The irony of being at a con is that you have less time to report on what’s happening at the con than the people who are 2500 miles away at home or at work.

I didn’t go to the Star Wars publishing panel, but Naboo News nicely summarized some upcoming prequel releases from Star Wars.com’s announcements.  Keep an eye out for the upcoming Mace Windu comics series from Marvel (Mace Windu:  Jedi of the Republic), “Tales of Hope & Courage” from the Forces of Destiny line, some kids-related stuff in the “Journey to The Last Jedi” line, and “Star Wars:  Creatures and Aliens” from Abrams.

By the way, if you’re keeping up with the Star Wars Little Golden Books, the new wave (stuff like “I Am A Pilot” and “I Am A Princess”) features prequel stuff galore.

Hasbro also unveiled some new products in the pipeline, including the Padmé doll from the Forces of Destiny line and a 6″ Black Series Captain Rex:

No word on when it’ll be available but previous Hot Toys offerings were around $250. I’ll be taking a look at it in person tomorrow!

New Tees At Target

July 17, 2017

A reader tipped off a new tee from Target featuring PT and OT characters in a “Star Wars” alphabet, only $12.99.

Then while browsing I spotted this one, also for $12.99, featuring everyone’s favorite villains.

Her Universe Debuts Naboo-Inspired Wear

Her Universe dropped pictures of a ton of new items available next week at SDCC and online, including a cardigan with Padmé’s royal signet and a skirt with a Naboo print. Someone found the cardigan already available at a Box Lunch store.

Eric Tan Prequel Art Available Again

June 30, 2017

Bottleneck Gallery sold out of these fast a while ago but now Dark Ink (Acme Studios) has more prints of Eric Tan’s prequel trilogy posters available.  Each poster is $50 or get all three for $140.  To order go here.

Thanks to a sharp-eyed reader for catching these!

Clone Wars-Themed Dresses

June 29, 2017

Scavenger’s Outpost sells independent Star Wars fangirl wear, including t-shirts and some nifty dresses.  Most of them are Clone Wars-themed:

“Rebel Leader”

“Oh Captain, My Captain”

“Wolfpack”

“Not Just Another Number”

The dresses cost $80 and sizes vary from dress to dress.

Uh, Where’s Padmé?

June 25, 2017

The Wookiee Gunner posted images and info on the upcoming Forces of Destiny line meant to tie in with the animated series.  Looks like wave 1 consists of Disney chicks only, with two different Leias coming out sometime after that.  Allegedly Ahsoka is due out “later this year.”

One character conspicuously absent is Padmé, even though she is supposed to be featured in the Forces of Destiny series.  Of course, it’s not the first time they’ve had amnesia on the prequel trilogy’s main heroine…
