Great news for Star Wars fans!
The Bad Batch
While we may not get the Mandalorian this year, that doesn’t mean you should cancel your Disney Plus account because Disney will be giving us something to watch in May. On May 4th, get ready for the next Star Wars series adventure called Star Wars: The Bad Batch which will exclusive be streamed on Disney Plus. The first episode is on May 4th, but the second episode will be on May 7th; new episodes will be aired on every Friday. Even though you might have finished the The Clone Wars series, there s more adventures with the Clones.
Star Wars site synopsis:
Subsequent episodes will premiere on Fridays. The series follows the elite and experimental troopers of Clone Force 99 (first introduced in Star Wars: The Clone Wars) as they find their way in a rapidly changing galaxy in the immediate aftermath of the Clone War. Members of Bad Batch, as they prefer to be called — a unique squad of clones who vary genetically from their brothers in the Clone Army — each possess a singular exceptional skill, which makes them extraordinarily effective soldiers and a formidable crew.
Star Wars: The Bad Batch is executive produced by Dave Filoni (The Mandalorian, Star Wars: The Clone Wars), Athena Portillo (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels), Brad Rau (Star Wars Rebels, Star Wars Resistance) and Jennifer Corbett (Star Wars Resistance, NCIS) with Carrie Beck (The Mandalorian, Star Wars Rebels) as co-executive producer and Josh Rimes as producer (Star Wars Resistance). Rau is also serving as supervising director with Corbett as head writer.
Star Wars: Republic Commando
If you are like me who missed out on this 2005 game, you’ll be happy to play this on your Nintendo Switch and PS4/5. Thanks to the game company Aspyr, video game company well-known for porting other Star Wars games like Star Wars Jedi Knight I and II, the video game Star Wars: Republic Commando will be heading to modern consoles on April 6th with the price of $14.99 (depending where your home country). This game was first launched for Xbox and PC for 2005 until 2018 where players can play this game on Xbox One for backwards compatibility. This is will be the first time this game will jump to Playstation and Nintendo.
The game follows an elite squadron of genetically modified clone troopers who embark on specialized missions during the conflict – and asks players to control the squad alongside traditional first-person shooting.
Welcome back for another haul post on my collection of Funko Pops. If you been following me, anytime I collect Pops within a month, I do a special haul post about my recent collection and explain how and where I got them. In this post, I am going to share with you with my figures I collected in the month of September.
60. Fused Zamasu from Dragon Ball Super (Hot Topic Exclusive)
I got this version of Zamasu from shopping Hot Topic online. Honestly, I got him because I need something to add in my cart for free shipping. I bought this along with a windbreaker jacket of Venom from Marvel. Zamasu is from the anime Dragon Ball Super. This version of Zamasu is when he and Goku Black (a version of Goku where a different Zamasu took over Goku) fused together. Together with the combined powers of a Kai and a mortal Saiyan, they become a dangerous enemy of the dark future of Trunks. However, after dealing with some brutal beatings from Vegito (a fused Potara form of Goku and Vegeta), Zamasu immortal body was unstable and it couldn’t match with Goku Black’s mortal body. The fused body of an immortal and mortal body has made Zamasu a hideous villain.
61-63. Joey Wheeler/Red-Eyes Black Dragon/Jack on angel statue
On a different day, I went shopping at Hot Topic in person and I did some shopping. In my visit, I bought Joey Wheeler and Red-Eyes Black Dragon from the Yu-Gi-Oh! series. If I was going to buy Joey, I had to get his iconic dragon. In the Japanese version Joey’s real name was Jonouchi Katsuya. At the same store, I also got this really big figure of this movie moment Funko figure of a scene from The Nightmare Before Christmas. This movie moment features a sad Jack Skellington with his ripped Santa suit on a statue. This is from a scene where Jack’s plan to take over Christmas fails and he was almost killed by the humans wanting to celebrate Christmas. Jack laments on his failures on this statue that holds him in sadness. This figure is really big and pricy. It cost almost the same price of 2-3 figures.
64. Cara Dune from The Mandalorion
I guess you can’t win some. I order this figure from Walmart online along with another giant figure from the same series. It’s currently delayed, but I placed an order for a giant metallic version of the Mandalorian with the Child. While I wait for this, I got this character, Cara Dune. First introduced in the 4th episode of the series, Mando meets a mercenary named Cara who was once a Rebel Shock Trooper. Together, these two make a great team and they know how to kick butt when fighting the stormtroopers. The actress who plays her is Gina Carano and according to fans, she plays the character quite well and she is also a mixed martial artist. She’s a really awesome character in the show.
I have a total of 64 figures.
Great news for Star Wars fans! I hope you are all caught up in the show The Mandalorian because we are about a month away for the series return. The Mandalorian season 2 begins in October 30th of this year. Disney released a trailer unveiling new clips and scenes in which the bounty hunter Mandalorian must travel in order to find the Child’s people and learn about the Jedi. Are you ready for October?
October may change the mood of 2020 if you having a rough year. Announced this morning, the tough bounty hunter series The Mandalorian is planned for a return for another fun filled season. Announced today, DisneyPlus exclusive series The Mandalorian will release season 2 on October 30th. If you like the Child (internet calls him Baby Yoda), mark your calendars and prepare to stay home on Halloween.
Following the success of the first season of Disney Plus’ original series, The Mandalorian will be back for another season in the fall of October. If this doesn’t excite you, I hope this news will because it looks despite this COVID-19 pandemic, nothing can stop this bounty hunter. According to Variety, a season 3 of The Mandalorian is in the works in pre-production. It has been confirmed by sources that show’s creator, John Favreau, has been “writing season 3 for a while” and Doug Chiang, Lucasfilm vice president and executive creative director, has been creating concepts for a while as well.
Season 1 of The Mandalorian can be watched on Disney Plus and a season 2 will officially be released in October 2020. Season 3 is in works.
Howdy fam! This is Matthew and I am here to share with my recent purchases of my Funko Pop collection. Even though March has been a rough month due to the COVID-19 epidemic, I was fortunate to snag some Pop goodies.
43. Mandalorian (The Mandalorian)
I bought this figure at the Best Buy website. Since we were in March, Best Buy gave me an email which had a coupon code for a birthday gift. The Mandalorian is one of my favorite shows in Disney+. The story takes place before The Force Awakens and the story focuses on a bounty hunter called the Mandalorian. There is more figures to collect from the series including the upcoming Child (also called Baby Yoda) figure.
44. King Bradley (Fullmetal Alchemist series)
With another birthday coupon code, I went online shopping at Hot Topic. I love Fullmetal Alchemist and I would recommend anyone to watch this anime, but I prefer Brotherhood. I might go back and rewatch the series again, but I also need to make time to watch the 2003 classic version. Anyway, Hot Topic was selling an exclusive figure of the character King Bradley. King Bradley (or also called Führer) is the commander-in-chief of the military in which main characters Edward and Alphonse Elric serve. In the manga and Brotherhood anime, he is actually one of the antagonist and he goes by Wrath (the 2003 version calls him Pride). I haven’t gotten the other figures and I heard it is possible to get an Edward Elric figure and have the English voice actor Vic Mignogna to sign it if you can go to a con where he is participating. I believe there is another Bradly figure where you can remove the eyepatch and see his homunculus but you would have to buy the Chase version.
Along with this figure, I did get to buy a Broly figure from the movie Dragon Ball Super: Broly movie. I need to get Cheelai with this figure.
I have 44 figures!
