That’s the smug look of someone with contacts high up in the Star Wars merchandising universe.

That having been said, if you want a Star Wars thing and it sells out, you now know who to blame. UPDATE: Daisy Ridley too.

Force Friday is here, and to mark the occasion Entertainment Earth has hooked us up with Star Wars Black Series 6-inch Han Solo/Tauntaun and Luke/Wampa sets to give away to a lucky reader!

Head on over to our contest page for all the details on how to enter…

hells club top

Somewhere, there’s a club where “fictional characters meet. Outside of time, Outside of all logic”. Welcome to Hell’s Club.

The brainchild of You Tube’s Antonio Maria Da Silva, Hell’s Club is a master class in editing and it poses the eternal question: Why does every club in the movies look the same?

Only in Hell’s Club can Tom Cruise meet his younger self, John Wick impress Neo, and John Travolta scope out one very nice looking padawan.

You’re going to love it. Trust me.

Watch it after the break.

Remember when we talked about that Fallout fan who made a New Vegas version of Monopoly? Well, if you liked the idea of buying up NCR property and stockpiling some bottle caps, then you’re in luck: it looks like Bethesda actually has plans to release an official version. Details are scarce, but according to the tweet after the break, the board game might come out this November (just in time for Fallout 4!).

I honestly have no idea how I’m going to survive Force Friday, not to mention all of the other product releases that we’re sure to see between now and December 18th when Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens. There are so many things and I want them so badly!

This time, it’s Tamashii Nations and their new SH Figuarts Captain Phasma, Kylo Ren and First Order Stormtrooper. Kylo has his signature crosssaber and the Stormtrooper comes with a blaster rifle. From what I can tell, Phasma’s got her primary weapon as well.

Kylo Ren and the First Order Stormtrooper are estimated to arrive in December, but there’s no word on Phasma yet.

wara-rice-hay-monsters

With pumpkin spiced latte in hand, I’m trading in my leaf-peeping schedule to see these incredible straw dinosaurs (I just need a plane ticket to Japan). The giant dino above is actually made of straw for the annual Japanese Wara Art Festival – “wara” means rice straw which can be found in abundance after the harvest. The dried wara is used to create tons of amazing sculptures that are displayed  in Uwasekigata Park, located in Niigata City’s Nishikan Ward from September through early November.

The dinosaurs were created by art student Amy Goda. There is also a giant praying mantis, a king cobra, a not-so-rubber duck, and a massive pinchy crab.

Check them all out after the break.

Hot Toys and Sideshow Collectibles have unveiled 1/6th scale Star Wars: The Force Awakens figures and they’re gorgeous. The releases include a 1/6th scale Kylo Ren, a Stormtrooper set that includes a 1/6th scale First Order Stormtrooper and First Order Heavy Gunner Stormtrooper, and the Hot Toys Exclusive 1/6th Scale Stormtrooper Squad Leader.

Each figure is made to Hot Toys high standards and comes with a specially designed hexagonal figure stand with the First Order’s emblem.

Kylo Ren is dressed in his tailored outfit with a weathered helmet and his signature lightsaber with LED’s. Seeing that thing lit up has got to be a thing of beauty.

The new First Order Stormtroopers set includes a standard soldier and a heavy gunner. The First Order Stormtrooper is equipped with a blaster rifle and blaster pistol while the Heavy Gunner sports an articulated megablaster, a blaster pistol, and artillery vest.

The Hot Toys exclusive Squad Leader features new armor with a white pauldron indicating advanced rank and a blaster.

Basically, I want alllllllll of it.
