Hasbro HyperReal Darth Vader Figure

This fall, Hasbro is launching HyperReal Darth Vader, an action-figure that is the stuff of dreams for anyone who has ever played with and loved Star Wars toys. Living up to its line’s namesake, it looks astonishingly real — and that was the goal. The idea was sparked from the ever-growing popularity of toy photography on Instagram, and figuring out a way to remove one irksome visible element that breaks the fantasy of realism: action-figure joints.

“It made it a direct correlation with it being a toy versus being something real,” says Sam Smith, design manager of Star Wars. “We strived to remove that piece, to start to blur the lines between reality.”

Here is the full product description:

Featuring super realistic detailing and articulation, along with an exterior skin and interior skeletal structure for seamless posing, Star Wars The Black Series Hyperreal figures let fans recreate galactic scenes with a faithfulness to the Star Wars entertainment that includes the Star Wars comics, movies, and animated series. The minute, entertainment-inspired Star Wars details and 8-inch-scale make these figures an impressive addition to any Star Wars figure collection. Includes: figure, 8 accessories, and figure stand.

Pre-order HERE for $79.99.

Game of Thrones Co-Creators David Benioff & D.B. Weiss Making Next Star Wars Film

Today Disney CEO Bob Iger confirmed that the Star Wars movie after The Rise of Skywalker will be penned by Game of Thrones creators, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.

One week ago The Walt Disney Company put out their film slate through 2027, including three mystery Star Wars films dated for December 16, 2022, December 20, 2024 and December 18, 2026.

Regarding the break between the next Star Wars film and the planned 2022 movie, Iger said: “We’re hard at work already, but we felt three years was the proper amount of time to not only take a breather and reset, but to gear up for the next film’s release.”

It was revealed last year that the pair would write and produce a new series of Star Wars films, separate from both the episodic Skywalker saga and the previously announced trilogy that is in development from Star Wars: The Last Jedi‘s Rian Johnson.

“David and Dan are some of the best storytellers working today,” Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm, previously said. “Their command of complex characters, depth of story and richness of mythology will break new ground and boldly push Star Wars in ways I find incredibly exciting.”

“In the summer of 1977 we traveled to a galaxy far, far away, and we’ve been dreaming of it ever since,” Benioff and Weiss said. “We are honored by the opportunity, a little terrified by the responsibility, and so excited to get started as soon as the final season of Game of Thrones is complete.”

No word has been revealed about when Rian Johnson’s trilogy will arrive, but Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will be released on December 20 of this year.

I Am C-3PO: The Inside Story By Anthony Daniels

Discover the incredible untold story of one of Star Wars‘ most iconic characters, C-3PO, told by the man who knows him best.

“Did you hear that? They’ve shut down the main reactor! We’ll be destroyed for sure. This is madness.”

These words were the very first to be spoken in any Star Wars movie, and they were spoken by a droid: C-3PO.

With his gleaming golden body and good-intentioned (yet worrisome) personality, C-3PO was there at the very beginning. Of course, C-3PO wasn’t actually a robot, or some amazing early animatronic creation – he was actually a man named Anthony Daniels.

Now, for the very first time, Anthony Daniels will tell C-3PO’s story in its entirety, from seeing the first concept images to the early stages of the final film in the Skywalker saga, Star Wars: Episode IX, and in the process, will also tell his own. This includes his encounters with movie legends such as Sir Alec Guinness, what it was like working closely with George Lucas, and the friendships he formed with Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, and others. But being encased in a solid shell for countless hours also involved hardships, pain, and in some cases real physical danger.

In I am C-3PO: The Inside Story, Daniels candidly relays his humorous, unvarnished, and extraordinary story as the man inside the machine, providing fresh new insights for even the most die-hard of Star Wars fans.

The 256 page book will be released on November 5, 2019 and you can pre-order it HERE.
