Lucasfilm has announced today that Ron Howard will assume the directorial duties on the Untitled Han Solo Film.
StarWars.com: Lucasfilm is pleased to announce that Academy Award-winning filmmaker Ron Howard has been named director of the untitled Han Solo film.
“At Lucasfilm, we believe the highest goal of each film is to delight, carrying forward the spirit of the saga that George Lucas began forty years ago,” said Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm. “With that in mind, we’re thrilled to announce that Ron Howard will step in to direct the untitled Han Solo film. We have a wonderful script, an incredible cast and crew, and the absolute commitment to make a great movie. Filming will resume the 10th of July.”
Howard has made some of the biggest hits and most critically-acclaimed movies of the modern era. Among his many films are Lucasfilm’s Willow, Apollo 13, A Beautiful Mind (winner of four Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Director), The Da Vinci Code, Frost/Nixon, and Rush. He also narrated and produced the beloved comedy series Arrested Development, starred in George Lucas’ American Graffiti, and remains a TV icon for his roles in The Andy Griffith Show and Happy Days.Add a comment
If you preordered The Black Series 40th Anniversary Wave 1 figures (Luke, Leia, Obi-wan, R2, and Han) you more then likely will get a cancellation notice from the retailer you placed your order with. Our sponsors (along with others) have received notices from Hasbro stating that this wave is now out of production and Hasbro will not be filling orders.
So what does this mean for the full cases of R2 and Han Solo that Hasbro said they were going to ship to Retailers? Well at this moment they have yet to cancelled these cases and retailers are still taking preorders on them as we speak. Guess we will have to wait and see what happens.Add a comment
"The untitled Han Solo film will move forward with a directorial change.
“Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are talented filmmakers who have assembled an incredible cast and crew, but it’s become clear that we had different creative visions on this film, and we’ve decided to part ways. A new director will be announced soon,” said Kathleen Kennedy, president of Lucasfilm.
“Unfortunately, our vision and process weren’t aligned with our partners on this project. We normally aren’t fans of the phrase ‘creative differences’ but for once this cliché is true. We are really proud of the amazing and world-class work of our cast and crew,” stated Phil Lord and Christopher Miller.
The untitled Han Solo film remains scheduled for a May 2018 release."Add a comment

Readers from the East to the West Coast has been reporting finding The Black Series 6" 40th Anniversary Wave 2 figures at their local Walmart Stores this week. I personally found them as well at 3 of my local Houston Stores this morning.
Its great news that these are starting to hit, but the bad news is most Walmart stores are only receiving 1 case per store currently, so they are gone in a flash. Happy Hunting!!Add a comment

For those into card variants, the entire Black Series 40th Anniversary 6" Wave 2 figures (All 6) have card variants. The Age text on these have been changed in the same matter as the GameStop Exclusive 40th Anniversary 6" R5-D4 Card Variant, which we first reported about last month. I personally don't have all 6 of the variants in hand yet (waiting on my preorders) but some of our readers have notified us that they have found all 6 and most can be found on eBay at scalpers prices as well.
Variants on All 6 Cards
• 1st version Card. Upper and lower case Age text
• 2nd version Card. Only upper case Age text.
Happy Hunting!!Add a comment
If your in need of The Black Series 6" Wave 11 Royal Guard, Qui-Gon Tusken Raider, & Lando, Amazon is now taking orders (as of this post) on them with a ship date of June 7th. Hurry because this will probably sell out quickly.Add a comment
Stopped by my local Houston GameStop today and mixed in with the dozen or so Black Series 40th Anniversary 6" Leia Figures was some of the new figures from Wave 2. Per the manager they received 8 new figures yesterday (assuming a case). So if your in need be sure to check your local stores.Add a comment
Just added to our HD Photo Gallery today is the The Black Series - 6" - 39: Lando Calrissian figure. Hasbro did a amazing job on the sculpt in my opinion and gave him plenty of articulation as expected. Lando includes a Removable Cape, Blaster Rifle, and a Communicator.
Be sure to check out all the new HD Photos in our Gallery.Add a comment
Hasbro has changed the way The Black Series - 6" - 34: Darth Revan figure is packaged in his box.
• 1st version. Revans sits lower in box and cape is displayed.
• 2nd version. Revans sits higher in box and cape is not displayed.
You can check out the changes on Darth Revan's Figure Page.Add a comment
For those into variations, Hasbro has updated the paint application on The Black Series 6" 24: K-2SO figure by giving him red pupils
• 1st version: All white eyes
• 2nd version: White eyes with red pupils.
The updated figure is now shipping in The Black Series Wave 11 Assortment (Royal Guard, Lando, and Etc). You can check out a side-by-side photo above or view larger photos on the Figure's Page.Add a comment
While at the Disney Store Yesterday noticed a variant on their Exclusive Han Solo and Luke Skywalker Elite Series 2-Pack. The variant has to do with the paint job on Luke Skywalker head.
• Blue eyes and blond hair
• Brown eyes and brown hair
According to the bio for Mark Hamill, he has blue eyes and had blond hair, so I am assuming the brown eye and brown hair version was the first produced and then Disney corrected it to the blue eyes and blonde hair.Add a comment
We would like to say thanks to Hasbro and Litzky PR for sending us a gift to Celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Star Wars.Add a comment
Hot off the truck at Brian's Toys is The Black Series 6" Wave 11.
This wave includes:
• Tusken Raider
• Qui-Gon Jinn
• Royal Guard
They just received a limited number of these cases today, so don't wait to long to order.Add a comment
Stopped by my local Disney Store this morning at 10am to pick up some of their Exclusive 40th Anniversary Products. All they had in stock were the 40th Anniversary Han Solo and Luke Skywalker Elite Series 2-Pack, T-Shirts, Lithographs, and the Limited Edition Christmas Ornament set.
Per the manager this is all they received to sell in store and the rest is / was available online (as we reported earlier).
I get asked a lot if the Elite Series Han Solo and Luke Skywalker sets are limited or not, so I reached out to a few different Store Mangers and I got different answers, so its unclear. My local store did receive 40 of the Han and Luke 2-Packs though and they were selling like hotcakes.Add a comment
So today is the 40th Anniversary of Star Wars, so since I was out running errands here in Houston I did a toy run to Target, Walmart, Toys R Us, and GameStop, hoping to find some of the New 40th Anniversary Products stocked on the shelves and pegs, but there was nothing to be found except for a massive amount of 40th Anniversary TBS 6" Princess Leia Organa figures at GameStop and Target, due to them getting full cases of Leia as we reported a few weeks ago.
My local Walmart and Toys R Us stores had nothing except for a few Black Series Titanium Series 3.75" figures.
I sure hope that we see large amounts of the second wave of The 40th Anniversary TBS 6" figures hit retailers soon and they don't continue to get flooded with solid case packs of Leia and possibly Luke and Obi-Wan.Add a comment
