The Disney Store has these new Star Wars Elite Series Premium figures, which are basically 10" scale figures with 30 points of articulation, fabric costumes and interchangeable hands with accessories.

Better than the Hero Series from Mattel, but not as finely detailed as Hot Toys.  Still, if you can't afford Hot Toys, its a very nice substitute.  

They have Rey and Kylo Ren available now, with Princess Leia and Darth Vader coming out the end of the month.  More to follow, I'm sure...

I only bought Rey for now...

the likeness is actually better in person, but I could not really capture it in a picture.

the hair is rooted and styled...


she also comes with the Skywalker light saber...


I really love her.  They did a fine job.

I just got back from the second time seeing Rouge One. I did not go to an Imax showing this time. It was odd, but it seemed darker. as in not as bright. And it made certain CGI characters look a whole lot more realistic, if you know to whom I refer.

But it still was a kick ass ride, especially in the last half. Time to watch New Hope.

Ronpur, I went old-school and watched it in 2-D, I also noticed it being dark, but was fine with that.

I have been watching season 2 of Rebels. They had an episode that took the to Geonosis. The Geonosians were all dead and there was evidence of a massive construction taking place in orbit. Obviously, the Death Star as build there and the race exterminated to hide that fact.

"Rouge One"?

Are you referring to this?

Today I got the Princess Leia Star Wars Elite Series Premium figure from the Disney Store and I love her just as much...if not maybe a little more than...the Rey one.

She comes with an Imperial blaster...


...and her own long barreled blaster...


...and I thought the likeness is pretty darn good, too (although the picture may not show it as much as in person)

I got the Star Wars Elite Series Premium Darth Vader today from the Disney Store.

He's awesome!


The cape is a heavier material than the inner cloak, and the suit underneath it all is a leather-like material and not just molded plastic.

He comes with another set of hands and both an engaged light saber and just a hilt you can hang on his belt.

Here he is with both.

These have all been really great so far.  I'm glad I got them.
