Just finished recoding and restoring our Power Of The Force - Orange Basic Figure HD Photo Gallery. There are 26 basic figures in total in this Toy Line which were released between 1995 and 1996.
This was the Toy Line that first gave me the collecting bug when I was just in college. It also inspired me to learn photography and web development as well.Add a comment

Collider a Website that reports Entertainment News, has posted that they have a source that has stated that Lucasfilm has decided to put all future "A Star Wars Story" spinoff movies on hold and concentrate on just Star Wars: Episode IX and the next Trilogy of movies. They stated that production on Obi-Wan which has already started has been shut down as well.
If this information is true, I would imaged that this was decided due to the poor ticket sales of Solo: A Star Wars Story.
Nothing has been Officially Announced by Lucasflim as of yet, so just consider this a rumor until then.Add a comment
After putting in some hours and playing Lenovo's Star Wars: Jedi Challenges, it’s time for a review. The review will cover the hardware and game play. We previously did an unboxing article back on June 11th when we first received this product, which showed the packaging and contents.
So what is Lenovo Jedi Challenges?
Jedi Challenges uses AR (augmented reality), which overlays the interactive Star Wars experience into your surroundings. You will see both the game and your physical and virtual environments all at once through the Lenovo Mirage AR headset. You can play Jedi Challenges in any daylight or darkened room. There is plenty of brightness on my iPhone X to play Jedi Challenges during the day in a well lit room, but I prefer a darkened room because the game’s graphics and details really pops in a dark room versus the daylight. If playing in a darkened room, make sure you’re aware of your surroundings and don’t trip or fall over anything.
Things to do before starting to play
Everything you need to play Jedi Challenges is inside the box besides your Cell Phone. I am using my iPhone X for this review. Below are some of the things you will need to do, before starting to play.
• Read through the Quick start guide.
• Charge the Lightsaber Controller with the supplied wall-charger and power cable.
• Install AA batteries into Tracking Beacon
• Download the APP for your IOS or Android Devices.
• Clean your Cell Phone Screen
• Insert your Cell Phone into the Lenovo Mirage AR headset removable phone tray
• Start the App on your Cell Phone and go through the onscreen setup screens.
• Not necessary, but would recommend using a Bluetooth Cell Phone Audio Headset while playing.
• Find a 10 x 10 foot play area clear of objects to play in.
If you need further help setting up this product, Lenovo has created a very helpful “How to Set Up Star Wars Jedi Challenges” video.
Starting the game
Upon starting the game you have a female guide called the “Archivist” who is very helpful and will teach you how to use your Lightsaber Controller and the basics of the different games modes. Game Modes to choose from are:
• Lightsaber Battle (single play or local multiplayer battles)
• Strategic Combat
HasbroToyShop has updated their Exclusives Page today which now lists all 3 Exclusive (2 were previously listed about a week or so ago) Hasbro Star Wars Products that will be available at the 2018 San Deigo Comic Con. As we first reported back on June 14th, these products will be available to purchase from HasbroToyShop on August 13th. We still have a while to go before they are available to purchase but as we suggested previously you may want to create a Wish List on their site and add these products to it for easy checkout later.Add a comment

You may recall back on April 19th we made a post of the Propel's Star Wars Drones being at Costco for $59.99. Today I was surfing Amazon and noticed that they have the Propel Star Wars X-Wing Drone for only $40 at the moment. The Original MSRP price on these were $199.99. This is sold and shipped by Amazon.
I have a couple of these and they are super fun to play with, especially if you have a friend to do battle with.Add a comment
While Hasbro has yet to release some Official Press Photos of the Imperial AT-DT Walker With Mimban Stormtrooper from the Solo Toy Line, a seller on eBay from California has already received this product and has posted some photos of it which can be seen above.Add a comment
I have been getting tons of emails asking when will the 2018 San Diego Comic Con Exclusives go on sale at HasbroToyShop.com, well while looking around their Website tonight, I just noticed that the answer is clearly posted on their Exclusives Banner, it states "Products will be available for purchase on 8/13". I didn't really pay attention to the banner previously, so not sure if its new or if I just overlooked the date.
Now remember this is the current date that "HasbroToyShop" posted on their site (I am just the messenger lol) and as always subject to change.
Anyways only a couple Exclusives have been listed so far (as we reported), but don't worry the others will be listed before the sale date.
Remember you heard it here first!Add a comment

Just recoded and restored our Expanded Universe Basic Figure HD Photo Gallery. Was living in California back when these were released and remember they were a bit tuff to find at retailers, at least in my area.Add a comment
Lenovo reached out requesting for a review of their “Star Wars: Jedi Challenge”, and, as a Gamer and a Star Wars Fan, I couldn't pass it up. I just received the product, so I’m doing an unboxing post today and a product and gameplay review afterwards.
First off, the packaging is very impressive. They definitely didn’t go cheap on the box itself. It’s very well constructed, with a very strong, thick cardboard and a superb branding that integrates Star Wars pop culture and augmented reality technology.
So whats in the box?
• Lenovo Mirage AR headset
• Lightsaber controller
• Tracking beacon
• Phone tray
• Lightning to Micro-USB cable
• USB-C to Micro-USB cable
• Micro-USB to Micro-USB cable
• AA battery x2
• 5V/1A wall-charger and power cable
• Quick start guide
Recoded and restored the 1996 Shadows of The Empire basic figure HD Photo Gallery this evening. Seeing these again really brings back the memories of tracking these down at retail stores back in the day.Add a comment
