Sounds like a Black Series 6" subscription service might be coming to the new Hasbro Pulse site.  If true, it'll be interesting to see how many folks are interested in a "one of everything" type model.  I imagine a lot of folks will pass because they only want OT or want to pick and choose paint apps or whatever.

Star Wars Resistance / Star Wars Galaxy of Adventure Basic Figures
« on: November 28, 2018, 01:03 PM »
I don't know that we need a whole forum for these so I'll just stick them in here since this is sort of the Spring 2019 5POA line forum.

Now that Disney/LFL has officially announced the Galaxy of Adventure animated shorts and the Hasbro line supporting it ("available on December 1, exclusively at Walmart and then nationwide in January 2019"), I can start up a thread for the figures without incurring the wrath of Hasbro PR team. ;)


Yakface has been out in front of this for a while so hop on over there for pics of the first wave.  Basically 5POA line repacks with a mini-comic in totally tubular packaging.

TV-9D9 / Star Wars Galaxy of Adventures

Star Wars Galaxy of Adventures to Debut on New “Star Wars Kids” Website and YouTube Channel

Brand new series of family friendly OT animation shorts to help new generation of kids learn the OT characters.


I'm not sure why today's kids can't just watch the OT movies and instead need flashy new cartoons to meet Han, Luke, and Leia, but whatever I guess. :P

CASSIAN ANDOR LIVE-ACTION SERIES ANNOUNCED

DIEGO LUNA RETURNS AS THE ROGUE ONE HERO IN A SPY THRILLER FOR DISNEY'S DIRECT-TO-CONSUMER STREAMING SERVICE.

Disney Chairman and CEO Bob Iger announced today that Lucasfilm is in development on a second Star Wars live-action series for Disney+, the Company’s new direct-to-consumer streaming service. The series, which will go into production next year, follows the adventures of rebel spy Cassian Andor during the formative years of the Rebellion and prior to the events of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Diego Luna will reprise the role of Andor. “Going back to the Star Wars universe is very special for me,” said Luna. “I have so many memories of the great work we did together and the relationships I made throughout the journey. We have a fantastic adventure ahead of us, and this new exciting format will give us the chance to explore this character more deeply.”

The rousing spy thriller will explore tales filled with espionage and daring missions to restore hope to a galaxy in the grip of a ruthless Empire. A release date for the series has not yet been announced. Stay tuned to StarWars.com for the latest updates.

Did we never start a thread for this OUS convention exclusive 2-Pack?  I can't seem to find one...

Yakface has news that the set should be going up for pre-order on November 6th.

Sounds like TVC Gam Guard won't be the only figure re-issued next year.  A number of old TVC figures will be re-offered via fan channel/specialty stores (EE, BBTS, etc).
