This Solo movie Lando action figure just changed my life

This Solo movie Lando action figure just changed my life

Today the new best Lando Calrissian action figure was revealed - the best action figure representation of this character I've ever seen. This is the first action figure I've seen of this particular Lando - this Lando played by Donald Glover. As such, it was bound to be a real trick getting all of one's ducks in order for a top-notch action figure. This was a real test for the sculptor, to be sure.

LEGO Solo movie Millennium Falcon set is a shocker

LEGO Solo movie Millennium Falcon set is a shocker

Today a key LEGO set was revealed from the film SOLO: A Star Wars Story.

This version of the Millennium Falcon is far lighter than its predecessors - in our universe, that is. This Millennium Falcon is lighter and brighter because it exists earlier in the Star Wars timeline than any we've seen before - it's clean!

A selection of superhero movies previously set for different dates will now be set in their own individual weekends. This includes Deadpool 2, The New Mutants, and Gambit too.

In The Last Jedi, subtext reigns supreme

In The Last Jedi, subtext reigns supreme

The Last Jedi has been out for a little more than a week at this point, and boy have Star Wars fans been divided. Some love it, some hate it, some are confused by it.

That The Last Jedi would make such extensive use of subtext is a bit of a curveball, and it can leave some people thinking that plot holes and rash decisions exist where they really don’t.

The Last Jedi’s adorable Porgs are more than just a cynical merch play

The Last Jedi’s adorable Porgs are more than just a cynical merch play

While there's a fair amount of debate going on about Star Wars: The Last Jedi as a whole, one of the most divisive components of the movie are the presence of Porgs. Like Ewoks before them, Porgs represent the cute side of Star Wars, a side that's proven to be controversial among some of the series' most die-hard fans. While it's tempting to think that Porgs were added to the movie just because Disney saw a new merchandising opportunity, it turns out that their development is a little more complex.
