It would appear that UK catalogue retailer Argos has provided the first opportunity to get this Christmas collection of minifigs, space ships, vehicles and other themed collectables. So get the jump on Father Christmas this year and head to Argos.co.uk where, for 29.99, you can set yourself up with 24 mini builds in December - including a snowboarding festive BB-8. Because we all need one of those.

Announcing at the Star Wars Collecting Update that they are focusing on new products for The Last Jedi and the Untitled Han Solo feature films which are under embargo, the Star Wars section of Kotobukiya's 2017 San Diego Comic-Con booth served as a reminder of what is currently available and what is coming soon. We love their ARTFX and ARTFX+ statue lines, so we were cool to see what was on display. Eagle-eyed collectors keeping track will note that this event marks the first North American public display of the Emperor Palpatine ARTFX+ paint master. Click the thumbnails above to check out all they were showing.

Collectors made their way to EFX Collectibles' 2017 San Diego Comic-Con booth throughout the event in order to get their hands on the company's stunning 40th Anniversary commemorative Darth Vader helmet, and found the public debut of the long-awaited Boba Fett helmet as well as a special showcase featuring the melted Vader helmet and Kylo Ren's Lightsaber hilt from The Force Awakens. EFX has announced their interest in offering fans an opportunity to add 1:1 scale replicas of the Episode VII props in the wake of Propshop's bankruptcy. If you were unable to attend this summer's biggest pop culture gathering, you'll be happy to know you can order it directly from EFX's site right now!

While LEGO isn't accepting any more Ideas proposals for any of IPs that they have already licensed, we wanted to highlight this Cloud City play set, built at MicroFighter-scale because it is so inventive. Unlike many Ideas pitches this hasn't been mocked up with a CAD package but is actual (ABS) bricks and mortar. And while it is compact and bijou - the set includes all the iconic Cloud City locations - it uses space well and circles around the gantry where Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader had their famous father and son face off. If you'd like to see that scene produced check out I Am Your Father which needs less than 400 votes to make it to the final LEGO review panel.

We have had multiple reports of the Forces Of Destiny dolls being found at retail. Rebelscum reader Todd attempted to buy the the Leia and R2-D2 pack at his local Toys "R" Us but was denied at the register. They apparently have a street date of October 1st. This may just be an error on the stores part as these are supposed to be available now as per Hasbro. Let us know what you find at your store and if you have any difficulty purchasing them.

Sideshow Collectibles had many Star Wars items on display in their 2017 San Diego Comic-Con booth, but of them all, we were most impressed with the Sixth Scale Mythos Obi-Wan Kenobi figure they added to the display after the Collecting Update panel.
