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.

We were alerted to a Fortune article by a post from our friends at Jedi Temple Archives about Hasbro’s Q2 financial results taking a beating.  But a deeper look may show that there is very little that indicates anything bad long term, so you Hasbro haters should pump the brakes a bit…

Our friends at Jedi Temple Archives have teamed up with Victoria’s Cantina (YouTube channel / Twitter) to provide a Hasbro Q&A from SDCC.  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.  But there is reason for our core audience to be excited.

We’ve just received word from Litzky PR that the availability date for the SDCC exclusives on Hasbro Toy Shop has been changed to September.  No specific date was given and the listings on HTS no longer show a specific order date.  Since these exclusives will also be sold at HASCON in early September, it’s a safe bet the availability date will be after that.  Click through for text of the actual announcement…
