If you’re a Star Wars Rebels fan, you’ve likely been chomping at the bit for season 2. I’m glad we had Star Wars Rebels: The Siege Of Lothal back in June, but I’ve been dying to see the crew of the Ghost back in action again.

Thankfully, Lucasfilm and Disney have announced new episodes starting Wednesday, October 14th (9:30 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney XD and it sounds like things are going to get even more complicated and dangerous. New Inquisitors, the return of Captain Rex and other fan favorites (yay Hondo!), and our first real look into the back stories of our Rebels.

There’s also a new clip that fans of The Clone Wars are really going to love. For myself, I’m always amused by Kanan’s stubborn streak, which is definitely on display here.

Not to mention, Disney XD shared a new poster for season 2 and I love it.

If you’re not caught up on season one or you just want to watch it as a refresher, Star Wars Rebels: Complete Season One will be out on Blu-Ray and DVD this coming Tuesday, September 1st so you’ll have time before the premiere.

I can’t wait.

Watch the clip and check out the official synopsis and new poster after the break.

The Star Wars Movie Realization figure line gets two new additions with the official unveiling of the Akazonae Royal Guard and Teppou Ashigaru Sandtrooper. Both figures have the gorgeous details that’s become synonymous with this line and both figures come with interchangeable hands and dedicated weapons sets. The sandtrooper has a gorgeous set of steampunk style blasters and the Royal Guard comes with with interchangeable chest pieces so you can display them in their robes or armor.

Posed with the previously released Vader figure, they definitely look like an intimidating group!

I don’t know if Hasbro decided to release an official guide to get out ahead of the leaks, or if they wanted to make sure people knew what was coming so they’d be ready to BUY ALL THE THINGS, but they’ve given us a pretty extensive look at some of the early merchandise.

If you’re majorly against spoilers, I’d suggest you not click. However, the toys don’t seem to reveal much we don’t already know.

Check out the gallery after the break.

Continuing their corporate tie-in with the upcoming release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, ANA, Japan’s largest airline, announced their Boeing 777-300ER will play the role of BB-8. Back in April we revealed that their Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner would cosplay as R2-D2, so this is another great addition to the jet-droid promotion.

The Star Wars theme carries through to the inside as well. Each plane will offer all six films as part of its in-flight entertainment on international routes as well as themed headrest covers, paper napkins, and cups. Both planes are scheduled to being their international (intergalactic) routes from Japan to North America March of next year, while domestic flights will be ready this November.

For some of us, our car isn’t just a mode of transport. It’s our baby, our Millennium Falcon. If you fall into the latter category, your car likely has a name and you have rules for people who ride in her. You also want to protect her from the elements and the occasional spilled drink.
