Dark Fatha American Emperial Stout


One of my local collector friends ran into this Star Wars themed beer last night at a local liquor store: Dark Fatha American Emperial Stout from Bent Brewery from right here in Minnesota. I guess I know where I’m going tonight.

Disney Star Wars Event: Children’s Costumes


Next up in our Disney Star Wars Event focus are children’s costumes. The line starts off with Darth Vader and the Stormtrooper for $59.95 each which be available in various size runs (S, M, L, XL). The fit and finish of these costumes are above and beyond what Rubies has done in the past.  Look for more characters to be available in the future. Click on through for the gallery.


Disney Star Wars Event: Diecast Vehicles


Next up in our Disney Star Wars Event focus are the die cast vehicles. Similar to Hasbro Titanium Series line, these vehicles consist of all metal construction, moving parts and have a price range of $9.95 for the smaller vehicles to $19.95 for the larger or “Deluxe” offerings. Note: yes the X-Wings engine are installed incorrectly – these are plastic/resin prototypes – the final version will be correct. Click on through for the gallery.


Disney Star Wars Event: Character Mugs


Next up in our Disney Star Wars Event focus are the porcelain character mugs. Each design varies in size and scale to reflect the character portrayed i.e. R2-D2 mug is short and squat, Chewbacca mug tall and thin. The outside design is also reverse embossed or “raised” to give even more detail to the piece. Each mug retails for $14.95. Click on through for the gallery.


Disney Star Wars Event: Plush Figures


Next up in our Disney Star Wars Event focus are the new plush items featuring R2 (with swivel dome), Jawa, Bantha and Tauntaun (no open belly – yet). The fit and finish of the actual product we saw in store was great and thus will make a great gift to any plush fan or collector. Pricing for R2 and Jawa is $9.95 each, the Bantha, Tauntaun and Chewbacca (not shown) are $19.95 each. Click on through for the gallery.


Disney Star Wars Event: Original Trilogy Figure Sets


Next up in our Disney Star Wars Event focus is the Original Trilogy Figure Sets. Each un-articulated figure set features 6 characters (scaled slightly smaller than Hasbro’s 3-3/4″ line) and retails for $12.95 per set. Click on through for the gallery. Available May 4th.


Disney Star Wars Event: 12″ Scale Figures


If you followed along via Facebook and Twitter on Tuesday, you’ll be up to speed on these but if not, here is a gallery of the 12″ scale line of figures coming to the Disney Store starting in May for $29.95 each. Things kick off with the Stormtrooper and then a new figure is released approximately every week there after. First for figures are  Han, X-Wing Pilot Luke, Stormtrooper, and Darth Vader. Later in the fall we get Boba Fett and a 15″ Chewbacca. Click on through for the gallery.


Rebels Customs Event Winding Down


The fan community was recently exposed to Hasbro’s upcoming Rebels line, which has been met with mixed results as so many of us prefer good articulation and more detailed sculpts with the Star Wars lines rather than what Hasbro revealed.

Soon after, we teamed up with to host a customizing event where fans can make their own Rebels themed customs and have a chance to win some cool prizes.  While the number of entries has been somewhat modest thus far, the quality has been fantastic.

To check out the latest entries,  click here – and remember, entries will be accepted until the end of April.
