Doesn't sound good. Careful if you're opening this around the family, Vice isn't always "kid friendly" and I have no clue what other links might come up at the end of your article.  :speechless-smiley-004:

14 Jul 2017 - Premium Elite Figures

So The Nerdist is reporting new Premium Elite Figures.

Pound for pound so far I've found these to be the best deal out there - even at full price.  You get a 10-11" figure, super-posable and most with incredible likeness for $42 CDN.   It's a sweet spot right above a 6" figure (costing $30) and an Art FX figure (costing WAY more).  At least it was those prices for a single one beforehand.  Looks like the new ones are a two-pack?

I wish Disney would release more of these. A Jedi Luke would be tops on my list followed by Boba (of Course) and Han Bespin.

The Canadian ToyCon is a monthly convention that focuses on action figures, comics, collectibles, toys, figurines, dolls, artwork and more from the 70ís, 80ís, 90ís and today. Vendors, exhibitors and artists offer a wide variety of merchandise, including items in mint condition and hard-to-find collectibles. Each convention has its own theme, cosplayers and special guests.

There's a very cool kickstarter project that's just started.  It is located here:

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1863512350/the-archaeology-of-star-wars-journey-to-tatooine

This one should be worth backing because of who's behind it.  It chronicles the original journey to Tunisia to find the Tatooine filming locations.  Today, with Star Wars tourism a thing, an internet search can now yield everything down to GPS coordinates for film locations, but back in 1995 not even Lucasfilm knew exactly where to look for them, let alone find them.  An individual came along and put his archaeological skills to the test to see if anything remained from decades past.  He found them all. Shortly after that Lucasfilm contacted him and eventually hired him.

For anyone that's followed the DK Incredible Cross Sections books and Visual Dictionaries, you'll notice that especially the very first ones were incredibly det
Most of us are probably aware of it, but I don't want anyone to miss out just in case. The Hasbro 12" Electronic Duel Darth Vader is based on the Rebels version of Vader which is itself a direct copy of the Ralph McQuarrie concept painting Vader (see here for more info http://www.starwars.com/news/an-annotated-guide-to-the-star-wars-portfolio-by-ralph-mcquarrie ).

Anyways, walmart.ca has them on clearance for $20

...so technically that is a 12" McQuarrie concept Electronic Vader figure for $20!  Can't beat that deal if you're a McQuarrie fan!
