PSWCS.org plans to continue working with Lucasfilm to release approved Star Wars™ medallions and merchandise and looks forward to being able to accept other forms of donations. Our new non-profit status also opens doors to working with a larger range of charities and organizations.

There are exciting things ahead for PSWCS.org which will be announced over the coming months.

When Hot Toys announced that they would be producing Star Wars figures they said they’d be doing them in both the 1:6 and 1:4 scale.  After the pre-orders of several 1:6 figures we now have our first look at the 1:4 scale, Boba Fett from Return of the Jedi.

The figure will be articulated and comes with extra hands, damaged and undamaged rifle and several accessories to round out his iconic costume.  An exclusive in select markets will be his The Empire Strikes Back blaster pistol and holster.  Boba Fett will also come with a display stand that looks like the Skiff where he battled Luke Skywalker and Han Solo.

No price is given but previous Hot Toys announcements have been shortly followed by pre-orders.  We’ll post more info once it’s available.  Until then, check out the photos we’ve mirrored above or head over to the Hot Toys Facebook page.

Hastings Exclusive Pulp Fiction Minimates

Hastings has a new Pulp Fiction Minimates exclusive set available in their stores and online at the GoHastings.com website.  The set is $19.99 and is available for order now.

Everybody be cool!

As winter sets in, we near the end of the 20th anniversary of Pulp Fiction, one of director Quentin Tarantino’s earliest and most acclaimed films. Pulp Fiction remains a work of art, with endlessly quotable dialogue, intertwining plot lines (and timelines) and inspired performances by a stellar cast, and Diamond Select Toys has been been honored to translate, chapter by chapter, the world of Pulp Fiction into the language of Minimates mini-figures. Now, a brand-new Pulp Fiction Minimates box set has been released exclusively at Hastings stores and on GoHastings.com!

The new box set, entitled “Diner Showdown,” includes main characters Jules and Vince (played in the film by Samuel L. Jackson and John Travolta) in “casual” T-shirts and shorts, rather than their trademark suits. The pair face off with robbers Pumpkin and Honey Bunny (portrayed by Tim Roth and Amanda Plummer), who decide to rob the diner they’re all in at exactly the wrong moment.

Each figure stands 2 inches tall with 14 points of articulation, and fully interchangeable parts. Accessories include the mysterious briefcase Jules and Vince are bringing to their boss, two coffee mugs, two pistols, two snub-nosed revolvers, a shouting head for Honey Bunny, four clear display stands and a spare set of empty hands for Jules.

This set joins the Pulp Fiction Minimates 2-pack, with Jules and Vince in their suits, and the Vince and Mia’s Night Out Box Set, with Vince, Mia Wallace, Lance and Jodie. Upcoming box sets include the Bonnie Situation, with Bloody Vince, Bloody Jules, Jimmie and Winston Wolf, and a set featuring Butch, Marsellus Wallace, Zed and the Gimp. Sets based on Tarantino’s Kill Bill are also available.

Minimates have a long history with the movies, including sets based on such famous films as Back to the Future, Ghostbusters, The Terminator, Aliens, Marvel’s The Avengers, Sin City, Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, The Lord of The Rings, Rocky, Platoon, A Fistful of Dollars, Desperately Seeking Susan, Game of Death and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.

To go along with yesterday’s Landspeeder, today we have a Luke Skywalker minifigure.  He has two printed faces, smiling and more serious, I guess for those times you come home and find your home burned down by Stormtroopers.
