We found them. Repeat, we found them! Entertainment Earth recently put up for pre-order ALL FOUR of the Republic Commando mini-busts from Gentle Giant's most recent "mini-bust world tour", allowing many US collectors to breathe a big sigh of relief. On this week's Star Wars Action News we talk about the release of these busts, and talk a bit about the higher prices for these items.
But those weren't the only "exclusive" items released online this past week. StarWarsShop.com opened their own ComicCon Store, which is ironic as they are not having a store in San Diego, but you can pre-order such items as the previously hard-to-find Stormtrooper Commander figure from The Force Unleashed, and over at HasbroToyShop.com you could order the smiling X-Wing Luke figure. We discuss these and many other online sales and bargains on this week's show.
Also this week, we give the final run down on San Diego Comic Con with the big news about the big news to be revealed during the Star Wars Sepectatu--, oh, I'm sorry, Lucasfilm Extravaganza on Friday night.
But if you're over in Europe one of the largest conventions has already happened: The London Film and ComicCon. We have a report from that "footloose" convention from our own UK-based reporter, Steve, The Ginger Prince, who also has a hard to get autograph as a prize!
With a vintage report from Kevin, a preview of the new fan audio drama Star Wars: In the Shadows, and a discussion of the new deluxe figures from Hasbro, it's all on this week's Star Wars Action News!
And don't forget if you're at San Diego ComicCon to come see our live show Thursday at 4 p.m. at the Kotobukiya booth in the exhibit hall. We will have special guests Steve Sansweet, Gus Lopez, Duncan Jenkins, and more!
