Leave it to Plaseebo to create what might be my favorite custom Star Wars figure I've ever seen. The IG droid on The Mandolorian was the breakout star of the show, adding human elements to the bounty hunting droid that had been reserved almost exclusively for C-3PO and R2D2. But Plaseebo has stripped him back down into a machine made for little other than killing by mounting his head on a tank. It looks like a plausible weapon and not something at all you would let babysit your tiny Yoda.
As with most of his creations, there is only one of these light up works of art. You have until tomorrow, Tuesday, September 29 to enter the lottery for tour chance to purchase it. Here's what you have to do to be considered:

In case you haven't noticed, neither Jyn Erso nor any of her esteemed rebels from Rogue One made an appearance in the original Star Wars waaaaaay back in 1977. That's because they were all roasted. Oh dang, I forget to yell "spoiler alert." Though I'm sure if George Lucas was still involved in the storied franchise he would have found a way to digitally insert their ghosts into the original films, causing my head to literally explode as if it had been fired upon by the Death Star.
Forces of Dorkness has created the ultimate collectible for the Star Wars fan in your life with this bag of ashes from the characters. Who exactly your mixture will contain is a complete mystery and thats half the fun! Pick one of these up right now from http://forcesofdorkness.storenvy.com.

Alright, I'm gonna go ahead and pass the digital collection plate around and ask you all to give generously so I can buy this. I say a lot of times that I need things, but I reaaaaaaaallllly NEED this. I would literally throw my sofa out to make room for this. I am committing to you a lifetime of eating meals and watching tv while sitting on the floor just to make room in my house for this Storm Trooper. And no, I didn't ask my wife how she felt about that cause I'm pretty sure she wants me to live out my dreams.
You can preorder this thing of beauty right now from Sideshow Collectibles for the price of $7,999.99, which is why I'm trying to get that collection going. Fund my happiness, people! You can get one for me by visiting http://www.sideshowtoy.com.

The toy game is strong in this one. And before you think it's because he's rich, he actually bought most of it when it first came out, making him a true plastic visionary. Rick Springfield, I salute you. Oh, and the video is courtesy of Rolling Stone. Not that they sent it to me or anything, I just kinda yanked it off of Youtube. Just giving credit where it is due.
There is no way I'm attempting to retype the name of this toy cause everything about me is in pain at the grammatical free for all that is taking place there. Thankfully, that has zero bearing on how amazing this toy is. Fools Paradise makes some drool-worthy pieces that I would kill to own and this may be my all time favorite one. They've turned Boba Fett's Slave One into a coin op ride, turned him into a her, and the result is one of the best interpretation of the Star Wars universe that I've ever seen.
The preorder for this beauty is going on right now over at this link until February 6th. They're making them to order so don't expect to get one if you miss out this go round. Each one will set you back $269, but think of all the happiness it will bring you.

When they make that stand alone Boba Fett movie it should start right after he falls into the Sarlac and his wife should show up and rescue him. That's right, his wife that you didn't even know he had that's super competitive and never going to let him live down the fact that she saved him from certain digestion. Then the rest of the movie should be reality show style as they catch various space criminals like that Dog the Bounty Hunter. They could also have some dumb kids that they're trying to work into the family business, and I think they should have those little side interviews like they do on Parks and Recreation cause those make me happy. My brain is literally minting gold bars with this one.
These Super Shogun Boba Fett figures are by far my favorite to have come from the Super7 and Funko partnership. They're frickin huge, which I love, and they're Star Wars related, which again is ok by me. Make a statement in your home with this Protoype Edition right now for $200 by visiting this link.

Ok, let me make it perfectly clear that the name of this toy is a bit nuts. I put that sucker in quotation marks so you didn't think I had a stroke while typing this. The name reminds me of when my brother went to Korea and he came back with this shirt that had a picture of a monkey in a space helmet and it said underneath "The Matrix Lord of The Rings Return of the King". They had just taken recently released movie titles, mashed em together, and called it a day. I was really pissed he didn't buy me one.
I'm more than willing to overlook what may be a rather confusing name and instead focus on the majesty that is this toy. Let's break it down into its component elements to fully appreciate what it has going for it:
1.) It's Star Wars presented in a unique way
2.) Half-nekkid lady Storm Trooper
It practically sells itself on those two points alone! So since I have convinced you that you need one, I shall now tell you how to make all of your dreams come true. You're gonna want to go to this link type in your payment info, and one of these will magically appear at your doorstep later this year. You only have until September 8th to preorder one and they cost $289 with shipping included (magic ain't free, son).

Scientists predict that there will never be a time from now until the end of the human race that there will not be new Star Wars stuff to buy. And it will probably continue beyond that as a superior race of beings from somewhere in space discovers our once vibrant planet, covered in sand and ruins and near mint packaged action figures. They will fall in love with them so much that they will start bootlegging them on their home world, to be sold in whatever passes for a Chinatown there. It's exactly what the "Circle of Life" song in The Lion King was talking about.
Funko is continuing it's quest to make every character from every thing you can think of into a Pop! Vinyl figure with the latest series from Star Wars. They will be available in July and I'm gonna need the Darth Vader one, but I'm holding out on anymore until they make one of the guy who ran catering on set. It'll happen.
