Limited Edition Anniversary Issue with 3D Comic Strip!
Be the first to get your hands on this special limited edition of Star Wars Insider #136, featuring an ultra-rare Star Wars 3D comic strip — unseen in North America. This exclusive 3D strip prequel to Episode I: The Phantom Menace features Anakin Skywalker, showing off his Podracing skills on Tatooine, while Darth Maul destroys battle droids while being trained up by evil Darth Sidious. The spectacular action on Tatooine and Coruscant comes to life with awesome 3D glasses, free with every copy of the magazine.
The Force is strong with Chris Hardwick.
Check out his epic journey from Lucasfilm’s Industrial Light & Magic all the way to the Santa Monica Pier to deliver the Course of the Force lightsaber, encountering the likes of R2-D2, Boba Fett, and The Walking Dead’s Robert Kirkman along the way.
Hi hi! Katie Linendoll here from Spike TV’s “All Access Weekly.” I am super pumped to be running in Course of the Force! As many of you know Course of the Force is an Olympic-style lightsaber torch run from Santa Monica to San Diego in preparation for Comic-Con. Naturally, I asked my mom to design a one-of-a-kind light-up R2 costume for me. Why? Because I’m obsessed with R2!! From R2 ice cube trays, an R2 robot that patrols my home and my R2 Xbox, he is the one and only man for me. Anyhow, mom delivered a custom R2 costume with an English twist (including fascinator) -formally dubbing it “R2-D2 Across the Pond” – nerd amazingness!! She also hand-painted R2 shoes! What do you think??
Sold exclusively at next week’s WonderCon in Anaheim, California, Kotobukiya will be offering an exclusive Shock Trooper 2-pack pre-painted snap-fit kit through Action Figure Xpress (booth #457)!
The 1/10 scale statue stands over 7 inches tall and is limited to just 1,000 pieces. From Kotobukiya:
Outfitted in standard Clone Trooper armor, these elite security forces were immediately recognizable by their bold red markings, the same that differentiate these ARTFX+ statues from the clones that came before them! Perfect miniature versions of the onscreen characters, these dynamic Clone Trooper repaints have fully detailed armor and weapons. Both included Shock Troopers come with multiple arm and leg parts giving you a variety of poses to choose from, and they’re ready for battle with both DC-15S blaster carbines and DC-15A blaster rifles! Finally, like the other ARTFX+ Star Wars figures the elite units have magnets in their feet for display on included bases.
If you’ll be attending WonderCon at the Anaheim Convention Center March 16-18, stop by Action Figure Xpress (booth #457) to add this stunning pair to your collection! There are also a limited number of pre-orders available at Action Figure Xpress.
