Judge Dredd has fought Predators and Aliens, but he has not had the challenge of taking both at the same time. Is Judge Dredd up for the challenge? Dark Horse Comics, IDW, and 2000AD have joined together to bring Predator vs. Judge Dredd vs. Aliens in a four-issue miniseries that will launch on July 27th.

San Diego Comic Con 2016 Gentle Giant Star Wars Jumbo Kenner Farmboy Luke Skywalker

Gentle Giant has unveiled their first exclusive for San Diego Comic Con 2016 and it is a big one! The first up to be revealed is part of our favorite line from Gentle Giant with the Star Wars Jumbo Kenner Farmboy Luke Skywalker. The Luke Skywalker was actually released before early in the beginning of the Jumbo Kenner figure line, but this time Gentle Giant is offering an extremely limited run of the Return of the Jedi Luke Skywalker (Farmboy) in the original cardbacks and figure colors. The figures are only limited to 250 each and were offered to Premier Guild Members in small quantities. The runs will sure be tough per day at San Diego Comic Con. 

Because YOU demanded it; the long sold out “Farm Boy Luke” is available again. Now with paint and packaging matching the original 1983 Return of the Jedi action figure. This low run edition was made for the die-hard collectors or those that missed the first release.

Most importantly; it’s for you, the fans and collectors that told us “I had this when I was a kid!”

 Gentle Giant will be unveiling more of their SDCC exclusives each day this week. Stay tuned!

Funko Pop! Gamestop Exclusive Star Wars Rey with Rebel Pilot Helmet

Star Wars and Funko Pop! fans should be very pleased with the newest addition to hit Gamestop stores this past week. We were able to get the last Gamestop Exclusive Funko Pop! Star Wars Rey with Rebel Pilot Helmet and glad we did. 

This features Rey in the terrific scene in The Force Awakens as she is eating her meal in her home, which happens to be an AT-AT. In the scene she is wearing a Rebel Pilot helmet and captures her holding a doll. 

The packaging is great with the Star Wars Pop! box along with the newest Star Wars figures to be hitting stores. The one thing I am surprised about though is that they just named this figure Rey and not add any other additional naming with maybe Rey (Rebel Pilot Helmet).

We did have to take the Rey out of the box and get a better look at the sculpt. What a great figure indeed! I have been a huge fan of Funko Pop! and continue to love how much it has grown with new licensing continuing to roll in, but I can say the sculpts are getting even better. The details in the helmet to Rey's hair and outfit. 

We highly recommend picking up the newest exclusive with the Gamestop Rey with Rebel Pilot Helmet.
