Celebration V: Orlando / 2010 Celebration V Confirmed by Hasbro
« on: July 23, 2009, 11:07 AM »
Celebration V has been confirmed for 2010!

Hasbro launched a new Clone Wars Diorama contest and one of the parts of the grand prize is that the winner will ..."have their scene displayed at the 2010 Star Wars Celebration!"


I wonder if LFL is going to be ticked that Hasbro leaked it before they could give it the big announcement treatment at Friday's panel?   :P

Kudos to all of you who 2-years ago predicted that this day would come...

McQuarrie Box Sets

Pass.   ::)

The Legacy Collection '08-'10 / San Diego Comic-Con 2009
« on: July 7, 2009, 01:02 PM »
Well, the time for the panel has been announced...

Friday, July 24th - 10-11 AM (Pacific):
Hasbro Star Wars
(Room 7AB)
Featuring Derryl DePriest (Hasbro Global Marketing), Brian Parrish (Hasbro Design), Mark Boudreaux (Hasbro Design), Brian Merten (Hasbro Design), Chad Donvito (Hasbro US Marketing) and Vickie Stratford (Hasbro Design). Come to the Hasbro Star Wars Panel to hear what the Hasbro Design and Marketing teams have in store for the remainder of 2009. Catch a special sneak peek into some 2010 secrets, too! Also includes Q&A time.


Just a little over 2 more weeks until the show.  What are you all hoping to see? 

I'm expecting a bunch of new vehicles since they've been teasing so many lately and I'm really hoping we get to see all the way to the end of the year - Wave 9 (RotJ), Wave 10 (ANH), Wave 11 (RotS), and Wave 12 (ESB).  Wave 13 (EU) would be nice, but I can wait for Toy Fair on that one if needed.  ;)

Kubricks / Medicom Toy Exhibition '09 (Parco Show)
« on: June 19, 2009, 02:20 PM »
There are days when I really, really wish my japanese was better.  First reports out of the Parco show... 

- it sounds like a new DELUXE SERIES program will be launched.  From what I can translate, it sounds like the first two deluxe series were being shown at Parco.  It sounds like (and this hasn't been confirmed or fully explained yet) there may be some sort of "build a" something feature incorporated, which is what makes is a "deluxe" series...

- I have also heard (but not been able to confirm or corroborate) that a Kubrick AT-ST was shown - no idea if it's a "for sale" item or just set dressing for the exhibit.  Working to lock that down...


Again, it's all rumor for now, but it sounds cool so far...  hopefully I'll have more soon.  8)

Kubricks / Medicom Toy Exhibition '09 Carded "Toy Fair" Vader
« on: June 19, 2009, 01:00 PM »
So, the big Parco show preview shindig was last night (or rather tonight, which has already happened in Japan) and the uber-exclusive Parco carded figure for 2009 is...

An homage to the 2002 Toy Fair Darth Vader!



Complete with saber sticking out of the top of the bubble...  definitely not what I was expecting.

Look for them to hit eBay soon!

Announcements / Notice: Forum Changes
« on: May 22, 2009, 12:00 PM »
Due to lack of activity, the following changes have been made to the forums.

- The Trivia Board has been removed - all discussion was moved to the Star Wars Universe Board.

- The International Corner Board has been removed - all Canadian topics were moved to the new Canada, eh! Section (enjoy your new home, Canadians ;)).  Threads for all other countries have been moved to the Mission Logs (Store Reports) Board.


That's all for now, but I'm sure there will be a bit more fine-tuning and spring cleaning in the near future...

Announcements / JediDefender.com - Now Under New Ownership!
« on: May 17, 2009, 06:25 PM »
I am excited to announce a few big changes you’ll see coming soon to JediDefender.com. 

First, JediDefender.com has been sold and transferred to new co-owners - Paul Mundheim and myself, Jeff Smentek.  Both of us are extremely pleased to have the opportunity to play larger roles in the development of JediDefender.com and its online community.  We’d like to thank the former owner, Chris Berry, for all of his hard work and dedication to the site over the past 6+ years. 

Second, JediDefender.com is pleased to announce the addition of Han’s Hideout as an affiliate site.  The loyal Hideout readers will be happy to know that the site will still be maintained going forward.  You’ll still find the news, features, and Hasbro Q&A sessions you’ve come to expect, as well as new columns, rants, and more.

In addition to the changes listed above, over the next few weeks you’ll also see a number of other changes coming your way:
  • changes in the JediDefender Staff
  • the return of regular news and front page updates
  • the return of give-aways
  • new figure customizing contests
  • and a few other things we’ll be revealing at a future date (after all, we can’t let all the cats out of the bag at once!)

If you have a suggestion on something you think we can do to make JediDefender.com a better place to visit, please drop by the Suggestion Thread or send us an email and let us know! 

Stay tuned for more and thanks for reading!

Thread title says it all.  Consider this the "suggestion box" for JediDefender. 

If you have something you'd like to see added (or subtracted) from the site, please let us know and we will investigate any and all options on the topic.  There is no guarantee any action will be taken on your suggestion, but it never hurts to put ideas out there for us to investigate.

Don't want to broadcast your idea in public for fear of backlash?  Then just send me your idea via email and we'll keep it private! 

Thanks for reading!

Watto's Junk Yard / It's SyFy-lous!
« on: March 17, 2009, 12:21 PM »
SCI FI Channel is evolving into Syfy

Seriously?  Syfy?   All so they can own and trademark their network name?

What a terrible name/idea...  ::)

and yes, I only started the topic to make the syfylous joke.   :-[

From UK etailer Forbiden Planet:



"The X-wing fighter has become the symbol of the Rebellion. Swift, reliable and highly responsive in battle, this rugged craft is capable of absorbing plenty of damage in combat. X-wings have flown in all the major battles against the Empire and are the preferred fighters of Rebel pilots. In the bustling Alliance hangars, X-wings are prepared for another battle with Imperial fighters, as pilots and technicians check engines, instruments and weapons. One Alliance pilot, Wedge Antilles, flew an X-wing in the Battle of Yavin as Red Two and as Red Leader in the Battle of Endor."
