StarWars.com has announced that the last scene for Episode VIII has been filmed and the anticipated sequel has officially wrapped production (aside from some pick ups and reshoots I would imagine). Now the long wait until December 2017.
Continuing the long tradition of holiday-themed mini busts, Gentle Giant has revealed and is now taking preorder for the Holiday BB-8 mini bust. Open to PG Member only, this seasonal version of BB-8 features a permanently mounted string of multi-color decorative lights.
PG Member have until August 10 to reserve your bust, and as with others in the past, they tend to sell through quickly.
Last year’s SDCC was a bit of a letdown as product for The Force Awakens was kept heavily under wraps until Force Friday (and the preceding leaks). This year, it looks like the mystery box won’t be under lock and key as much as Hasbro is set to reveal new products from Rogue One starting tomorrow.
