The onslaught of announcements from NYCC 2017 has begun and Hasbro has stepped up early with the reveal of four new Black Series figures; DJ (TLJ), Lando Calrissian (Jabba’s palace disguise), 4-LOM, and Dengar!
Release dates for the second wave of the Disney Store exclusive The Last Jedi Elite Series 6” die cast figures have been revealed. Unlike the first wave, the next seven figures will be released individually over the course of six weeks starting on October 27th.
On September 1st the new wave of Star Wars toys arrive in stores, I say arrive but as we've seen from toy hunters that Walmart and other shops have already put the stock out. My only hope is that Toys r Us don't try tell us that they haven't had their shipment as what happened on last years unofficial Rogue Friday (they were still putting up the displays at 9am Friday morning), they didn't get their limited stock until late afternoon.
This volume we find out about Pez and the figure is Hammerhead.

But first we mention them a lot on TSW toybox so here's a short history of the Facebook group Echo Base.
Funko are getting ready to addict you to a brand new range of adorable Star Wars toys with the new Funko Mystery Minis...
We saw a slow release of new 6” Black Series figures throughout the Celebration weekend that included deluxe, exclusive, and wide release figures from all different eras of Star Wars.

But first we continue the Meccano story.

While most people find Star Wars through film or TV, I found Star Wars through collecting.
We all have our own Star Wars stories, and I wanted to share mine to help bring some insight into what drives me as a collector today and why I am here discussing Star Wars collecting.
This time we talk about the one and only Golden Rod.
But as he is a Droid, we'll talk about the unsuccessful series that followed the main line.
STAR WARS : DROIDS
Everyone loves star wars.
Everyone loves star wars toys.
But do you know the story behind the most successful toy franchise in movie history?
This volume we talk about a certain scruffy looking nerf herder. But lets start with something not in last volumes A to Z...
Before we talk about the little fella, let's have an A to Z (nearly) of collecting speak...
