(Stabbed through the heart . . . and you’re to blame. Kanan, you give love . . . Ah, nevermind.)

Join Johnathan, Berent, Nathan, and Mark as they discuss the episode. Was Yoda well-used here? What do the visions tell us about Ezra’s mindset? How does this tie into what we know from A New Dawn? Are episodes like this able to shock anyone but children anymore, when so much is obviously imaginary?  All this and more in this episode of Rebels Roundtable

Roundup: TFA Toys, Sideshow Collectibles Lineup, Topps Cards, and More!

The new year is finally upon us! Star Wars Celebration Anaheim, season two of Star Wars Rebels, and the highly anticipated sequel, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, are on the horizon. Before those events come to pass, there have been several updates and news reports from the Star Wars toy collecting community. To bring you up to speed with the latest information, this roundup highlights the most relevant and popular items to keep your eyes on.

No Toys Based on The Force Awakens at Toy Fair 2015

Hasbro announced on January 5 that no toys based on Star War: The Force Awakens will be shown at Toy Fair 2015 in New York City, a trade-only event for toy and youth entertainment professionals scheduled for February 14-17.

“Obviously, we know that there’s a huge amount of anticipation for Star Wars toys this year, and we wanted to be forthcoming about this as we know it might make a difference for some of you in regards to travel plans.”

The Force Awakens Hasbro Product List

z Rebelscum posted a Hasbro product list for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which includes 3.75 figures, The Black Series, toy lightsabers, masks, and other items.

Hasbro Digital Release Box Sets

hasbro_digital_release_box_setsIt appears Hasbro plans to release products in conjunction with the digital releases of the Star Wars films sometime around May the Fourth, though the release date could also be sooner than that, according to Jedi News.

The figures appear to be from the Saga Legends line. Also, I find the lack of female action figures disturbing. Both trilogies have prominent female characters, and once again, they’ve been neglected. The Saga Legends action figure of Princess Leia as Boushh would have fit in quite nicely.

Rebels Review: Path of the Jedi

Rebels Review: Did “Path of the Jedi” Just Change a Historical Moment from the Original Trilogy?

Mitchell SteinIt feels good to be back and reviewing these episodes once again. After a fairly short winter hiatus, Rebels is back in a interesting new format. What I witnessed in this week’s episode was something that leaves me with mixed emotions. I found it entertaining certainly, but there are flaws that are just leaving me uncertain of what new direction the show is heading in.  Beware of spoilers ahead.

Like I said, Path of the Jedi is a confusing episode, not just in the story perspective, leaving you just as clueless as Ezra in the hallucination scene, but so much happened in this is episode, and ultimately at the end, not much of an actual outcome exists out of this episode, (or so we may think). So we get Ezra and Kanan going to a secret, ancient, Jedi base, yet another Inquisitor encounter (which actually doesn’t truly happen), and some confusing encounters that really just lead up to the one moment that the entire episode had me devote twenty-two minutes to getting the point across.
