The 2013 San Diego Comic Con has brought the Rebelscum team back to San Diego to give you the complete rundown on all the major Star Wars licensees. Just like last year, you can find all the non-Star Wars coverage on Cool Toy Review.




Star Wars Collectibles Update Panel

Our own D. Martin Myatt sat in on the live Star Wars: Collectibles Update panel that took place at San Diego Comic-Con allowing us to bring you the updates just as fast as we could type! Follow this link to check it all out!



Star Wars Collectibles Panel Gallery

Following our live report from the Star Wars: Collectibles panel Friday afternoon, we have the following gallery that features shots from the presentation itself. See if you can spot anything cool that you haven't seen elsewhere!




ACME ARCHIVES

New Acme Archives Star Wars Art Debuted

San Diego Comic-Con usually means a bunch of new Lucasfilm branded art from Acme Archives. This year certainly didn't disappoint!





All of this art is now available to purchase direct from the Acme Archive site right here in either a giclee on canvas, a giclee on paper or both.



GENTLE GIANT

The Gentle Giant Ltd Booth

Following the official opening of San Diego Comic-Con 2013, the team's first gallery showcases the Gentle Giant booth. Click through for the full gallery and a brief run down on all the Star Wars collectibles shown on Preview Night!




Gentle Giant Reveals New Boba Fett Animated Maquette

Via their Instagram, Gentle Giant has revealed that a new Holiday Special Boba Fett piece will be their next Animated Maquette! No further details were given, so we'll have to wait and see when this will be available for pre-order. It's important to note that this is a much different pose than the 2007 Star Wars Celebration IV exclusive Boba Fett (Animated Debut) Maquette.




Star Wars Licensee Of The Year

Each year, the staff at Rebelscum.com gets together for a meeting of the minds to discuss which licensee we feel has contributed the most to the Star Wars collecting community over the past twelve months. It's always a tough call with so many wonderful licensee's out there producing top quality Star Wars collectibles, but there can be only one company that we give our award to.

For 2012/2013, we are proud to present the Rebelscum.com Star Wars Licensee of the Year Award to Gentle Giant Ltd. for a fantastic run of Mini Busts, Statues, Animated Marquette's and 12" Jumbo Kenner Action Figures. From all of us here at Rebelscum.com, congratulations Gentle Giant Ltd.! This marks the first win for the company. We look forward to another exciting year of fun and unique collectibles. If the just revealed life-size Jumbo Kenner Action Figure statues are any indication as to what's planned for the future, we're more than excited.




The Gentle Giant Ltd's Animated Boba Fett

As mentioned earlier on, Gentle Giant Ltd has added a very exciting surprise to their 2013 San Diego Comic-Con display. Follow this link to have a closer look at the Holiday Special inspired Boba Fett Animated Maquette!




HASBRO

Your First Look At Hasbro's Star Wars Display

Even before 2013 San Diego Comic-Con officially opened, our team had a chance to walk through the main exhibit hall, and while most booths were just getting started, the brand teams at Hasbro had done a bang-up job and were even able to leave early. Click the thumbnails above to see all the action figure related stuff on display.




Your First Look At Hasbro's Angry Birds Star Wars Display

1/3 of Hasbro's 2013 San Diego Comic-Con Star Wars display was dedicated to the seemingly popular Star Wars Angry Birds mash up, and now with the announcement of the Prequel game, there are twice as many little hearts to be broken by this controversial toy line. Follow the link above to see what will be coming to a store near you soon!




Hasbro's Post Panel Reveals!

Every year almost immediately after their panel at the San Diego Comic-Con Hasbro adds a pile of new figures to their display and this year is no exception. Follow this link to check out the second waves of their 6-inch Black Series, Mission Series, and Saga Legends action figure collections!




Hasbro's Further Post Panel Reveals!

Hasbro refreshed their 2013 San Diego Comic-Con displays one final time revealing the 6-inch Black Series Revenge Of The Sith Obi-Wan Kenobi action figure. This figure was displayed without all its accessories, and at the current time it is uncertain whether a robe, be it soft goods or PVC, will fit into the wave's budget. Also included in this gallery is the Black Series 3 3/4-inch figures which we missed in our previous gallery. Follow the above link to have a closer look.




KOTOBUKIYA

The Kotobukiya Booth

As our 2013 San Diego Comic-Con coverage continues we head over to Kotobukiya to take a look at their Star Wars display. Highlights include the Sandtroopers, General Grievous and the New York Comic-Con exclusive R2-Q5 ARTFX+ pieces as well the place cards announcing the Luke Skywalker & Princess Leia and Han Solo & Chewbacca A New Hope ARTFX+ two packs!




SIDESHOW COLLECTIBLES

The Sideshow Collectibles Booth

Next up in our 2013 San Diego Comic-Con coverage is a gallery certain to make your head spin. Follow this link for images of all the Star Wars stuff on display in the Sideshow Collectibles booth.




The Sideshow Collectibles Booth Part 2

We went back to Sideshow Collectibles to photograph the four Premium Format Figures they had on display. Click the thumbnails below to have a closer look at the Chewbacca, Darth Malgus, Snowtrooper and Commander Cody statues.

Poll
Now that you've seen the prototypes of Hot Toys' upcoming Movie Masterpiece Series MMS261 Han Solo and MMS262 Chewbacca 1/6 scale figures, our ever inquisitive Probe Droid is tasked to find out whether you are going to collect the line.
Hot Toys had me at "Hello There"
1/6 scale collecting has just lept forward. I'm in!
I hope the actual products are better than the prototypes, and if they are I'm interested in collecting this line.
This will be my first venture into the realm of 1/6 scale collecting...
I'm a 1/6 scale collector, but I'm not interested.
I'm not a 1/6 scale collector, so no, I won't get into this line (yet).
