This past weekend at Star Wars Celebration, Frank D’iorio’s Diorama Workshop built a massive Cloud City diorama at the Hasbro booth! Constructed over the course of 4 days, the diorama was created through a combination of the Diorama Workshop's team of 12 builders and the help of approximately 1500 fans who customized pieces at Star Wars Celebration. The diorama is 640 square feet and consists of over 400 setpieces, including approximately 800 figures and toys by Hasbro and Kenner. The entire process was captured in a time-lapse video.

Despite not having an exclusive at Celebration, Hasbro had a big presence at Celebration They showed off several new upcoming figures and vehicles. Check out this website and read through the Q&A. I specifically chose this one in regards to what I like to collect.
Q: The Black Series line, as it is, is it continuing on to 2016 and beyond?
A: Yeah we have no plans to stop Black Series. It’s doing really well for us. We revealed the new Fall 2015 line look. It’s moving forward. We’ve had a lot of fans ask about Vintage and Droid Factory, both things we definitely want to get back to in the future but Black Series in terms of our pinnacle figure expression, that’s what it is and that’s how it’s continuing.
Get your first look at the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens teaser #2! Lucasfilm and visionary director J.J. Abrams join forces to take you back again to a galaxy far, far away as "Star Wars" returns to the big screen with "Star Wars: The Force Awakens."

I just picked these figures up from Target today. I had to use the DPCI code to get them to bring them out to me. They said that they were going to set them til next week and I was like I want to buy them now. So hopefully that employee doe...snt get in trouble. I use to work at Target back in the day and the management team are strict and lame. lol The DPCI Code is 087-06-1172 They rang up at $24.99 each. There are six in a case but three of each of these sets. There is no Chewbacca set.

Yes, that's right! We got out old domain name back. Back on the winter of 2001 DSP.com was born. Since then we let the domain expire and went with the current DSP.net domain which was created after we started up the sequel DSP2.net site. Recently we dropped the "2" and have gone back to the DSP name. Its great to have the .com back as most of my original images in the Toy Gallery had the .com logos. Thanks to Mute for keeping a close eye on our original domain and scooping it back up.

I know it has been awhile since I posted a SW Babe image so here we go. Check out this random image I found off Facebook. Yes, Those are the droids I am looking for. I know fellow collectors would love to see their women in those outfits.... or maybe not! lol
RC-01/138—simplified as RC-1138 and also known as Delta-38 or by his nickname of Boss—was a clone of Mandalorian bounty hunter Jango Fett. Born in 32 BBY on the watery world of Kamino, Boss was trained by the Mandalorian Cuy'val Dar training sergeant Walon Vau to become a clone commando in the Grand Army of the Republic. Placed in command of three other commandos, Boss lead the elite special forces unit Delta Squad as their sergeant. When the Clone Wars broke out between the Galactic Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems, Boss took his place in the Grand Army's Special Operations Brigade under Jedi General Arligan Zey, and served alongside his clone brothers in Delta Squad on a number of battlefields, ranging from the deserts of Geonosis, the halls of the RAS Prosecutor, and the streets of Coruscant, to snowy Mygeeto and the the plains of Haurgab. Following the transformation of the Republic into the Galactic Empire, Boss and the other members of Delta Squad—minus squadmate RC-1207, who the squad was forced to abandon on Kashyyyk in the final days of the Clone Wars—served in the new Imperial Army, as members of the Imperial Commando Special Unit, a specialized unit within the 501st Legion tasked with hunting down clone deserters, fugitive Jedi Knights and Jedi sympathizers. -Wikipedia.com
Although this figure was released under the animated Clone Wars line, the figure can still pass as one of the movie like figures as well. It would be nice to see the rest of the Delta Squad redone in this figure form. I never picked up the latest Battle Pack of them as a set. I do have the original seven pack. This is a must have figure even for you non clone collectors. Check out my photo gallery here at DSP of Commando Boss. Be sure to stop by the Forum and leave your thoughts on this figure. Did you find yours in the wild?
To portray Chewbacca for “The Clone Wars,” Mr. Mayhew was not required to don the outfit at all. (“I was doing it in my own clothing,” he said.) However, he did record dialogue for the character, having learned over the years to emulate the blend of bear growls and other animal noises used to create Chewie’s voice. Lucasfilm hasn’t said yet if Chewbacca will return for future episodes of “The Clone Wars,” but Mr. Mayhew said he was happy to have been so closely associated with the character for nearly 35 years. -Source
I personally missed out on finding the original release of this figure in the wild. However, I was thrilled to finally added the animated Chewbacca figure to my collection when Hasbro decided to re-released this figure in the new packagung. I hear that there was a variation though with the bottom portion of this hair skirt having slits to be able to bend his legs. The original not having them. So maybe I will hunt down the original still and add that figure as well to my ever growing action figure collection. Click here to view the gallery I put together for DSP. Be sure to stop by our Forum and join in on the discussion.
G8-R3 was an astromech droid in the service of the Royal Naboo Security Forces in 32 BBY. He had the head of an R5-unit on the body of an R2-unit. He was destroyed by a blaster bolt fired by the Trade Federation ships blockading Naboo while attempting to repair Queen Amidala's royal starship. -Wikipedia.com

Luke Skywalker's lightsaber was the lightsaber used by Luke Skywalker. It was made in 3 ABY after he lost his father's lightsaber to Vader himself, along with getting his hand cut off.
The design of the weapon was based off schematics Luke found in Obi-Wan Kenobi's hut on Tatooine. While the final product remained largely faithful to these designs, Luke simplified the weapon considerably, as this was his first attempt at constructing a lightsaber. For instance; he decided to use only one crystal for his lightsaber, as opposed to the ideal of three to allow for a fully adjustable blade. Luke was able to gather most of the parts he required to build his weapon from various vendors in the city of Mos Eisley, including a high-energy reflector cup, power cells and a focusing lens. However, Luke was unable to obtain the one vital component that would bring the whole project together: the lightsaber crystal itself. -Wikipedia.com
