Prequel Goodies You Can Buy Now Or Soon

March 21, 2017

ROTS Tsum-Tsums from Disney are scheduled to drop April 4.  There are only four in this set instead of the usual seven:  Vaderkin, Grievous, an AOTC era clone trooper (?!), and Obi-Wan.  No word yet on whether there will be t-shirts.  Check out a photo of the set here.

LadyJediScientist found a bunch more independently-produced prequel items:

House Organa necklace

Padmé eyeshadow set

Lip gloss

Funko announced its first wave of SWCO Pop exclusives.  There is one prequel Pop and that is a hologram Qui-Gon:

Han Solo not included. Apparently more exclusives will be announced. Funko says some will be “shared exclusives,” meaning you will be able to buy them elsewhere but they’re not saying yet which ones. If you’re going to SWCO, you must enter a lottery to get a crack at buying any of the exclusives.

Update: Funko will also be producing a 442nd Clone Trooper for SWCO. If you’re not going to the con, the clone trooper will also be available from FYE and Holographic Qui-Gon will be available at Target.

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:

aldrx2350front-c435560720960-bgf8f8f8

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.

Upcoming Stuff From Her Universe

January 26, 2017

The HerUniverse.com site relaunched two days ago (and if you sign up for their new mailing list, you get a 25% off coupon) and to commemorate the occasion, Ashley Eckstein did a live chat on Facebook.  The video is available on the Her Universe Facebook page (with plans to eventually put it up on YouTube).  It’s an hour long and lots of topics are discussed but to narrow it down–thanks to a summary from The Kessel Runway–here’s what is relevant to prequel fans:

*There’s a Naboo-themed cardigan and skirt coming out this summer.  Woo hoo!

*More Ahsoka stuff is on the way.  A sweatshirt for adults (plus and regular) and a long-sleeved tee for kids are available now.  A new tee will debut for Celebration.  They’d really like to do an entire Ahsoka collection.

This wasn’t mentioned in the video but the Naboo hoodie is due out in March; Midtown Comics’ web site had a placeholder for it.

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.
