Is my cable guide correct? Is this on like 6 times today?

Pretty much.  For some strange reason, Disney is showing the new episodes five times on Monday @ 12:30 a.m. ET/PT, 3:00 a.m. ET/PT, 7:30 a.m. ET/PT, 5:30 p.m. ET/PT, and 9:00 p.m. ET/PT


Look for new episodes every Monday with five airings throughout the day at 12:30 a.m. ET/PT, 3:00 a.m. ET/PT, 7:30 a.m. ET/PT, 5:30 p.m. ET/PT, and 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on Disney XD, the Disney XD App, and VOD.’s Rebels Recon behind-the-scenes series will be posted after the 9:00 p.m. ET/PT broadcast, and episode guides will be published on Tuesdays at 9:00 a.m. ET / 6:00 a.m. PT.

Mighty Muggs are making a return in 2018.  I guess Hasbro got tired of seeing all that cash heading to Funko from the POP! collectors. ;)

Hasbro sent me a free gift bag today from NYCC and it had one of the new face-changing Mighty Muggs in it.  Click on the thumbnail below for a look at Luke.  Or, you can click here to check out the press pics of the first five they announced - Princess Leia, Luke Skywalker, Kylo Ren, Rey, and Darth Vader.

I also posted a video of Luke's face-changing feature in action on JediDefender's Twitter, so be sure to give that a look too if you are interested in these.

I found one these on ebay on buy it now for $19.95 plus free shipping.

I finally got around to grabbing one off eBay for $19.95 + free shipping as well.  I think that makes me all caught up on Disney carded Droid Factory figures again...  until R3-H17 hits the parks after Halloween is over. :P

The Sequel Trilogy / Re: Star Wars: The Last Jedi (SPOILERS)

In case you are one of the 5 people who haven't sen it yet......

Yeah, from the beginning, Hasbro has been saying 12-15 figures in 2018, then potentially more in 2019 depending on how it goes.  I believe they said something like 30-36 but not all the way to 50-75 like the heyday of the line.

Right now we're sitting at seven repacks (Rey, Kylo, FO Stormtrooper, Hoth Rebel, Jyn, Cassian, Deathtrooper) and three NEW (Aphra, Tank Driver, Snoke) with a couple more NEW figures to be revealed (most/all of which are from new media).

I can understand the disappointment with all the repacks, but that's kind of where we are these days.  The Walmart 3.75" line stuff kicked off with repacks too to get the numbers to work for the new figures.

Interesting they would put another Lando fig out so soon after the last one too.

Especially considering there may be a 'young Lando' figure coming with the Han standalone stuff next spring too...

I didn't want to be too much of a SWAN fanboy and post that video, too (full disclosure:  I'm friends with both Arnie & Marjorie, and we even had lunch in NYC yesterday).

No crime in that. Arnie and Marjorie do nice work and actually try to make the hobby better for everyone!

does that make the inference that Zuckuss is included with the other two, but the figure isn't ready to be shown?

People were asking about Zuckuss, but Hasbro didn’t say anything about him.

As the saying goes, 'always leave them wanting more!' ;)

Just an FYI that there were three separate "round table" sessions with Hasbro and fan sites scheduled this morning (off-site from the main NYCC event).  I know SWAN posted their roundtable Q&A session on Facebook (this is a different video from the one Nick linked in the first post, which was the new toy reveal portion).  Should be interesting to see if any additional news comes out of the other two sessions.

Also, full disclosure in this era of Hasbro 'unfriending' certain fan sites - JediDefender was invited to attend these round-table sessions, but I couldn't get the travel to work (unfortunately the site often has to take a backseat to the wife, four kids and real job :().  We still have a relationship with Hasbro and will continue to send them things like the JediDefender wish-lists to try and help influence the future of the 2018 Vintage Collection (past the first few waves of repacks that are coming) and are hoping to make it to Toy Fair in 2018.

I appreciate the do over on the pilot, but so far the TLJ line seems to be in large measure the TFA figures, again.

Don't worry, once the Vintage Collection hits in 2018 we'll be seeing lots of... um, TFA and Rogue One figures again.  :-\  :P

There have been some really nice figures so far (Luke, Leia, ObiWan) but yeah the rehashing is getting a bit boring.  Say what you want about George, but at least he knew how to give his characters lots of different looks as the OT progressed.  TLJ's "Finn with new shirt" and "Maz with new backpack" and "Kylo with scar" are not really jumping out.

Sounds like 4-LOM has some nifty new articulation in his arms to get elbow articulation but still have the piston thingies  on them...  you can see the slots on his arm in the pic.
