It'd be fun to get Moloch's "dogs" too.

Coming in a 2-pack with Moloch's henchman Rebolt - click for bigger pic

Hopefully Disney or EE will make a droid pack too with all the random droids from Kessel.

One of the Kessel astromech droids is in the Solo Droid Factory 4-pack, but I'd love to see some of  the others too.  Disney's got some wind-up fighting droids already, rumors they will join the 3.75" droid factoy line eventually too. 

I figured after the Kessel job was done and they got paid that Chewie would go his own way to find his tribe/family.

Yeah, I'm guessing you'll get that fleshed out in comics or the books or even the sequel - Solo 2: The Search for Lumpy!

I'm dieing to hear your thoughts on Han, Jeff.

I'm seeing the movie again tomorrow, maybe I'll type something up after that.  Overall, I really liked it.  It's hard for me to rank it against Rogue One since they were two very different types of movies and your love of one over the other probably depends on how much you rank all out space/ground battles.

I suck at reposting Instagram stuff, but Hasbro put up a new 6" pic with L3-37 and Val.

Oh, and Rio Durant has been rumored/found in brickseek now too ICYMI.

Official Hasbro reveal via Hasbro Pulse Instagram

You can pre-order it now at site sponsor Entertainment Earth for $59.99 plus shipping...

Or, you can bookmark this link and grab it for less later on this summer. :P

My only complaint was the Black Sun leader reveal at the end.  Kind of total crap, unless it factors in a later Kenobi movie or something.  Totally unnecessary.

It worked for me.  In TCW, he was trying to unite the various underworld factions to fight the Republic and Separatists, makes sense that he'd try to start one himself after it fell apart.

I loved that Han shot first in this movie.

Ditto. :)

Have there been any announcements or rumors on a Dryden Vos figure? Or do I need to pick up the POP?

3.75" 5POA - Force Link 2.0 Solo Figure – “Hades Joker” – Dryden Vos (rumored for Wave 4 or 5)

I don't think there has been a 6" rumor/brickseek find yet...

it seems like nearly every article spirals into some love/hate Star Wars dick measuring contest

Pretty much.  I get emails all the time asking for the ability to comment on front page articles here at JediDefender and I have ZERO interest in allowing the 'love/hate dick measuring' like Jayson called it. It's too easy for anyone with a Disqus account to come along and **** all over everything on a whim.

I know it's old school and it costs us a lot of advertising clicks (and potential revenue), but we will probably maintain our separate old-school forum here until this site dies.

Which is weird since Qi'ra is in the same wave as 4-LOM.

Remember, online shops and HTS have access to single figure cases for most 6" figures.  They probably got in some Qi'ra cases but not 4-LOM yet...

Did I miss the discussion on these?

No, you were there:P

I saw a box of SWB 6" figures on a pallet at Target marked as "Hercules" - is that this Chewie?

Yes, Chewbacca = Hercules in the Solo code names.

Fake spoiler warning:

For example, why would Darth Maul be in this movie?

^ Not fake.

Local paper (Star Tribune) had this spoiler in the Solo movie review and a few co-workers mentioned it to me despite my effort to stay spoiler free.  So much for that surprise. ::) :(

The Vintage Collection / Re: 2018 Vintage Collection Wave 2

I wonder what happen to that tank?

Good question.  EE's preorder page for this changed.  It was originally listed as available in August.  But now the listing says Not For Sale At This Time.

Due to an error, a few things (6" Enfys Nest & Swoop Bike, TVC Imperial Tank) were released for pre-sale before they were supposed to be.  The online shops had to stop taking pre-orders at the request of Hasbro but both items are still coming in the Fall.  They should go back up for pre-order again soon.

Exclusive: @Jon_Favreau confirms that his live action #StarWars series takes place 7 years after Battle of Endor, between #ReturnOfTheJedi and #TheForceAwakens. Will feature all new characters, using cutting edge tech a la THE JUNGLE BOOK. Story coming to @nerdist...

Great, looking forward to more "NO ONE LIKES THE SEQUEL ERA" garbage from the 'true fans'!   ::)

Solo / Solo 3.75" The Last Jedi 5-Pack Box Set

All those folks out there dying to get a Holographic Maz figure can finally rest!

Thanks to another TRU Hong Kong store report tweet, we've got a look at this long rumored pack.  Again, no word on how (or if) this will get a US release.

From out of the blue comes a crazy new Black Series 6" figure - Stormtrooper with Blast Effects - found at TRU in Hong Kong.

No word yet on how this will be made available in the USA. (Nor any word on if this is a one-off or maybe the start of a new sub-line?)

First there were rumors that Ewan McGregor would be on the red carpet for tonight's Solo premiere...

Then this Kenobi Pre-production blurb from FanthaTracks... 

Official Announcement coming soon or fake news?
