Is this news? I feel likes it’s news, but I haven’t exactly been keeping my ear to the ground on the subject. It appears that Walmart has ended the clearance of the Black Series 3.75” line. Click through and I will promise you one of two things. We’ll either provide more details on the subject, or I’ll share tasteful boudoir photos of myself. Hit the jump and roll the dice.

Inferno Squad author Christie Golden chatted about a range of topics about her new book, particularly what it was like to attempt to portray the Empire as sympathetic. What does this mean in the context of Star Wars in the Disney era?
In the second installment of our runaway hit “Two Jerks” series (this is totally a thing) we at the firm of Nomad and Other Guy toss around our storylines for the third Star Wars Anthology Film. Our previous discussion fell just shy of generating the 1,001 Disqus comments necessary for me to win 10 AT-ACT’s from Other Guy. As it was such a close call, he’s shrewdly lowering the ante this time to a single 6” Black Series figure, of his choice, found on clearance.

There is a lot of Vintage Collection information revealed here, but connecting the dots, I feel like we’re in familiar Vintage Collection territory. I feels like “wait ‘til next year” again.
