28 Apr 2017 - May 4th Sale at TRU

Here is an ad that is displayed in the toy section at TRU today, announcing a sale on ALL Star Wars stuff starting May 4th.
Black Series 6 inch AT-ACT driver is listed at toysrus.ca for $34.99....actually titled as AT-AT Driver online. This is a target exclusive in the USA.
As per title - EB is apparently getting these 3.75" statues of the main ANH characters. I didn't get the price, but it comes in a cubic box, already on the base, good I suppose for those of you who don't open. The box is one size smaller than a Funko pop box.

25 Apr 2017 - Little Star Wars Tidbit

What does The Forest Rangers have to do with Star Wars? The Forest Rangers was a Canadian Television series that ran from 1963 to 1965.  It was produced by CBC & ITC Entertainment.   It's claim to fame is that it was Canada's first television show produced in colour. 
Fans of the 80s will remember actor Keone Young as the original voice of Storm Shadow in G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero. Star Wars fans now know him as the voice of Commander Jun Sato in Star Wars Rebels. Additionally Keone has been in too many movies and TV series to list here, but some of his roles include Mr. Wu in Men in Black 3, Henry Lin’s Uncle on the FX series Sons of Anarchy, Mr. Wu on the HBO series Deadwood, Jeong Jeong in Avatar: The Last Airbender, Dr. Hido Takahashi on HBO’s True Blood, and even played Hoshi Sato’s father on Star Trek: Enterprise. Young will be available for autographs and photos all day.

Also appearing: WWE Legend Hacksaw Jim Duggan

When I was a kid it was the 3 3/4 Kenner figures and vehicles. Now that I have my own kids, my three teenage sons are into Star Wars, but don't seem to have much interest in action figures like most of us older folks did back in the 70's and 80's. My eldest son is 18 and is big into collecting Lego but also bought the 6 inch Ahsoka. My 15 year old likes Star Wars but doesn't collect anything Star Wars related apart from the Battlefront game. My 13 year old is all about lightsabers and Star Wars tsum tsums. Is it just in my family or are kids just not that interested in action figures anymore? Figures seem to move pretty slow at the stores around here too, so it has me wondering if it's mainly adults keeping the action figure lines going.
