Just over a week ago, the world experienced Force Friday, a mad gathering of nerds…
I’m thinking not to expect Han, Luke or Leia till after the movie opens.
Here he is – the first Force Awakens action figure, and one who caused acts of violence on Comic-Con’s preview night.
Look, I know the movie probably would not even have been made if the budget were big, but giving it to Blumhouse and having them cut corners on so many aspects just really, really seems like the wrong move in hindsight.
The Hasbro item we dubbed the best exclusive of Comic-Con 2015 is a monster of a thing – a giant doorstop that looks like the book of spells it’s made to resemble.
Assuming this is genuine – and it seems to be – we now know a few more things.
If you pick Angela, you finally get to see what happens when McFarlane Toys and Hasbro make the same character.
What will Julia do? Her mom told her yesterday to go ahead and enjoy it. But she is sad that she can’t see the toy inside and might have to lessen its value to do so.
This is a wrap on our Comic-Con 2015 coverage, folks. And I happen to think that on a shoestring budget, with a team of one editor in San Diego, one in New York, and one correspondent in Hall H for one day, we stayed competitive with the big guys, who’ll be doling out their coverage in drips and drabs for the next month or so while we’re busy moving on.
