Silver Clones Out?
Word from my local area would seem to indicate this. These have been spotted at a Pittsburgh area Toys R Us hanging on the pegs for $4.99. This is most likely a mistake by the store who just put them out like any other figure, so don't panic or scratch your noggin' going "huh!?", but it does let us know that these are indeed in the pipeline.

The Official Site has finally released pictures to the public of the new DVD boxset packaging for the Original Trilogy due out on September 21st. The embossed cover art comes in Silver for the Widescreen enthusiasts, and gold for the doofuses that still prefer the ol' pan-and-scan version, with artwork of Vader on one side, and the Rebel heroes on the other. Looks good!

Sunday, March 21, 2004 | Scott PearsonWizard World L.A. - Clone Pilot SOLD OUT
Wizard World made it's West Coast debut this weekend, and as is often the case, handling of the convention exclusives, most notably the GG Clone Pilot bust, was far less than adequate. This hot collectible was completely sold out just 10 minutes after opening on Saturday morning. This was primarily due to Wizard's decision to allocate the bust at 2 per person throughout Friday's Preview Night, where the majority who scooped this item up were opportunistic investors, rather than Star Wars collectors unfortunately. So another major blow to Gentle Giant bust collectors. Looks like the usual trip to eBay for you, to fork your moolah over at about 400% of retail cost.
As for the rest of the convention, Star Wars was very poorly represented. A couple dealer booths here and there with some figures, but that was about it. But if you were a fan of comic books, Kevin Smith, or the upcoming Punisher and Hellboy movies, I'm sure it was paradise! Hopefully with Ep. 3 hitting next year, Star Wars will play a much bigger part. We'll see you then!
Sunday, March 21, 2004 | Matt ColmanMore "New" Footage On Star Wars Original Trilogy DVD's?
The Digital Bits website has some interesting news on the Star Wars trilogy coming to DVD later this year. "We can say with some confidence now that when Lucasfilm and Fox release the Star Wars Trilogy on DVD in September, the films ARE going to include new footage. We've confirmed "unofficially" with three separate sources, each in positions to know, that at least SOME new footage is being added to the films, and that more special effects enhancements, tweaks and fixes are being done."

Monday, March 15, 2004 | Matt ColmanCantina 3 Packs
Canceled, released in limited quantities, Saga Recards, everything under the sun has been said about the 2nd Wave of Cantina Sets (Kitik Keed'Kak, Wuher and Dr. Evazan) once scheduled for Wal-Mart. Galactic Hunter's Swami last week said that there were 2 new sets of 3 packs in the works for the line.
This week Yakface has what looks to be a mock up of a possible 3 pack consiting of the very same Kitik, Wuher and Evazan. This will probably be an exclusive somewhere this summer/fall. Lets hope there is indeed a second 3 pack coming too! Rumored Cantina Figures include: Hem Dazon, Banniss Keeg, Bom Vimdin, Feltipern Trevagg and Elis Herlot. Stay tuned for more details as the arise!
Sunday, March 14, 2004 | Scott PearsonUltra Kamino Figures Arriving Now
For those of us (And there's a lot of us!) that missed out on the Deluxe/Ultra Kamino figures from some time ago, the repacks of them on the new Ultra cards are starting to ship. BomBadBoy, from my local Pittsburgh group, mentioned finding them at a local Target (Monroeville, PA) store today. Happy hunting for these. I know I still want a set since I hear the action feature actually works on these. How keen!
Thursday, March 11, 2004 | Jesse McCrackenStarWarsShop.com - From Bad To Worse...
Well, the highly anticipated launch of StarWarsShop.com was a complete and total bust. Things looked bad enough throughout most of their opening day, when their site was abruptly taken down after only a few hours, never to reappear. But to make matters far worse, they've just CANCELED everyone's orders placed during that time, due to some technical difficulties they were having. It really makes you wonder why the hell e-tailers can NEVER get it right when it comes to taking orders for Star Wars exclusives online... They never learn. Read on for the full, ugly scoop straight from the horse's mouth, or in this case, SWS.com's new main page...
