Star Wars Rebels Mission Series Hera Syndulla 3.75 Figure

Star Wars Rebels supervising director and executive producer Dave Filoni made a wild appearance on social media to generate excitement in the fan community. Recently, he posted a picture of the Hera Syndulla figure everyone desperately wants to add to their collections. Though no solid date is available, the Hera Syndulla and Sabine Wren figures will debut in 2015.

Some want to see both Hera and Sabine as single-carded figures as well as in more merchandise. For example, pre-orders are available for Gentle Giant’s Star Wars Rebels Stormtrooper, but some fans (including myself) have expressed more interest in having a maquette of Sabine and Hera. Here’s hoping that change comes soon! Continue reading

Join the Rebellion with Her Universe’s New Star Wars Rebels Designs

If you’re a fangirl desperately looking for a Star Wars Rebels shirt to express your love and support for the new animated series, then you’re in luck! Ashley Eckstein unveiled two new Star Wars Rebels tees for fangirls of all ages at Her Universe. She wore one of the shirts on the day of the Rebels premiere back on October 3, 2014, which caught the attention of the fangirl community. Ashley even gave us the heads up on September 21, when she informed fellow fangirls that the new shirts would be coming soon, with more coming at Star Wars Celebration.

From left to right:

Join Rebellion Tee (Adult / Youth): “We are big fans of Star Wars Rebels and we ready to Join The Rebellion! Join Ezra, Kanan, Hera, Sabine, Zeb and Chopper as they fight the Empire for justice and peace. This is a missy cut shirt and runs true to size.”

Graffit Rebel Long Sleeve Tee (Adult / Youth): “A Rebel marks the spot! Sabine’s tag symbol has quickly become our new favorite icon and we are obsessed with her graffiti art. Show that you are a Rebel with this super comfy long sleeve top. Runs true to size if you like it fitted. If you want it a bit loose, we recommend going up one size.”

More shirts will come soon, especially at Star Wars Celebration. Stay tuned!

Dragon Con 2014: A New Trope Panel Recap

This year saw me, Teresa, Riley, and Aaron all together at Dragon Con! While the convention is over, we are still releasing coverage of it including audio, photos, event coverage, and panel recaps like this one. Dragon Con has so much wonderful content from Marvel panels to parties, from Doctor Who to My Little Pony, and of course the Star Wars track, which had panels, parties, a costume contest, a trivia contest, and more. This Saturday panel was moderated by Teresa Delgado and Aaron Goins, who also have some audio of the panel on their podcast Star Wars Bookworms. The guests were Christie Golden and Timothy Zahn, both well know authors. The discussion revolved around tropes, with the authors talking about overdone story-lines in fiction, as well as classic themes that aid in the effort of telling a story well.
