As a duly appointed member of the Imperial Press Corps, I am proud to report on the arrival of these beautiful cloisonné "press" pins. Each pin is approximately 2" in diameter and comes in a plastic storage case. Along with the pin is a card, notarized by Eris Harro and Pollux Hax with information of the benefits that the pin provides.

The flip side of the card (not shown) provides information on the real-world premiere of Star Wars Rebels, plus some information for the real-world members of the press.

"The one-hour movie Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion will debut on Disney Channels around the world on October 3rd (9:00pm ET/PT) and will usher in the animated series which premieres October 13th (9:00pm ET/PT) on Disney XD."

Back before the world wide web and social media ruled our shopping habits there was a long-established practice of driving around all the nearby toy stores to hunt down the latest releases. Obviously times have changed and online retail is far more important than it was twenty-five years ago - but has it killed the toy run? What was your shopping experience over the Triple Force Friday product launch weekend?
I managed to find everything I wanted in stores!
I found some but had to resort to big box websites to complete my haul.
I didn't bother stepping outside and ordered everything online.
I haven't bought any of the TFF product yet. Roll on clearance sales.
I'm waiting for the TV series/movie release before I commit.
I've so over it, no more Star Wars collecting for me.
