StarWars.com has just posted a huge update for Star Wars Celebration Anaheim announcing the return of Ian McDiarmid, an expansion in the autograph guest lists and the return of Frank Diorio’s Diorama Workshop
We just received confirmation via HunterPR that Ahsoka and Darth Vader figures revealed yesterday will be sold together (Mission Series style) and not on individual cards.
We are still a few months away from their planned fall release so plans may change before then.

Tune in after the show tonight to The Wolfpack Podcast as we break down all that was revealed on the finale.
The ToyMan Collector Show returns to St. Louis on Sunday, March 8.
With over 180 dealer tables, you never know what vintage or new Star Wars, GI Joe, Transformers or He-Man items you might find, and often at great prices! For more details, check out their official site, and we have plenty of images in our forums from their recent shows to give collectors an idea of what kind of toys to expect to find.
One of the best things about customizing is recognizing the many different techniques and approaches to creating custom figures. Case in point, recently we’ve seen two very different approaches to creating a Trandoshan – head to the forums for a closer look.
Also, our current Yakfinities Customizing Challenge continues through the end of March – and the theme is Bounty Hunters – so if you’re a customizer, what are you waiting for? Create a custom and join in the fun… over 40 customs have already been created this round, and we hope to see many more! And remember, we give away prizes at the end.
Flyguy and Yakface are back once again to grind through the week’s Star Wars collecting news. On this show, we continue to report good things on the retail front as more and more Star Wars Rebels figures are making their way to collectors. The Star War Rebels trading card series hit retail this week and we’ve partnered with Topps to give away a full box. Did you win? You’ll have to listen to find out. We also dig into news this week from Revoltech, Gentle Giant, Funko and more. Finally, Star Wars Rebel wraps its first season on Monday. Who Will Fall? Who is Fulcrum? All this and more on Episode 53 of The Realm Recap!
Also, if you prefer an audio-only version, a downloadable MP3 is available as well.
Packaged samples of the upcoming 6″ Emperor Palpatine have started to hit eBay. It should only be a matter of time before preorders start getting filled and for them to hit retail in the US.
While not Star Wars, Star Trek is as engrained in most of us. We are sad to pass on that Leonard Nimoy, who played Spock in the franchise, has passed away at the age of 83.
A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP

Good Morning America has posted an exclusive look at the final episode of season 1 of Star Wars Rebels. Who will fall???
UPDATE: YouTube version embedded.
Tonight I swung by Wal-Mart, and questioned why I even waste my time there anymore. But to my surprise, I walked by the pallets and saw a fresh case of Wave 1 Rebels figures. Perhaps this is an isolated chance of dumb luck, but I’m sure we’ll be seeing other similar reports soon – so it may be worth your while to add Wal-Mart back to your occasional toy runs… because this toy run dry spell can’t last forever.
Funko has announced that the POP! Slave Leia will be reissued in special packaging to celebrate The Force Awakens. Watch for additional releases from their vault until the highly anticipated sequel is released.
Yahoo has posted a preview of the upcoming Star Wars Art: A Poster Collection which features 20 removable, frameable prints. 16 of the prints have been curated from existing Star Wars Art series books and 4 are all-new commissioned pieces. Visit Yahoo.com for an exclusive first look then preorder your copy from Amazon.
Big Bad Toy Store is now taking preorders for wave 9 of the 6″ Black Series. This assortment includes 2x Commander Cody, 1x IG-88 and 1x Princess Leia in Boushh Disguise.
Expected arrival: May 2015
The next installment in the Darth Vader series from Marvel is now available via your local comic book store. You can also purchase and download the digital version through Marvel’s Digital Comic Shop.
Tonight we take a look at one of the coolest customizing projects ever posted in our forums – The Box Project – by forum member Peakob1. This Clone Wars themed project entails customs of 12 of the best bounty hunters in the galaxy. Check it out after the jump!
Personal Note: It’s a shame that Hasbro let the Clone Wars line die with such a whimper, starting in 2012 they had pretty much abandoned the line and their last efforts included completely unnecessary resculpts of characters like Obi Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker. This project just goes to show how much potential that line had.
