It almost feels like forever ago when I posted the FINAL TRAILER for “Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker” and while it was only in October, we’ve surely had a bevy of content related to the film to share with you all. Since then there have been Featurettes, TV Spots and Promotional Posters that you can examine at your leisure by clicking HERE (I’ve directed you to my PiercingMetal.com site for all of that since I posted more about the film on that page). Now its time for the moment that you have all been waiting for since “Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker” opens today in theaters everywhere. As you know this was a journey that began some forty plus years ago in 1977 with “Star Wars: A New Hope” (before it even had a Roman numeral and chapter name). Today that film opens in theaters everywhere and I’d say to check your listings but you will likely be able to find a showing at every turn especially if you live in a big metropolis like we do. Below you’ll find the Official Theatrical Poster, premise and casting. Let’s review.
It was just a couple of months ago in August where we shared the “Special Look” clip that was revealed at the D23 Convention for the upcoming “Star Wars: Rise Of Skywalker” which as you know will end “The Skywalker Saga” that began way back in 1977. To review that clip if you are compelled just click HERE to be on point. I’ve posted that and assorted other related content over on PiercingMetal already. Now its time to showcase the Final Trailer, so sit down and be comfortable and prepare to go to a galaxy far, faw away….again. Let’s take a look.
Fashion Doll collectors of the world are going to go crazy at these latest offerings from Mattel with their “Star Wars x Barbie” high end fashion dolls. You might remember our recent post about their “X-Men x Barbie” fashion dolls (seen HERE in case you missed it) and these are another perfect compliment to one’s collection of such things. Let’s take a look shall we?
The Press Notes:
Barbie is teaming up with Star Wars on a new collaboration paying homage to Star Wars: A New Hope, by putting a high-fashion twist on iconic characters
It’s no lie when I say that I grew up collecting the early “Star Wars” toys (which were Kenner at the time in case you didn’t know this stuff) and now with Hasbro holding the license for quite some time, the amount of high quality toys and collectibles are bountiful. For the adult collectors they have “The Black Series” of highly poseable action figures and now there is something for the younger members of your family circle to enjoy as well. Check out the details that we just received about the “Star Wars Micro Force” WOW Series. Images and press copy came care of the media keepers of the gate for the company.
STAR WARS MICRO FORCE WOW! Series 1: (HASBRO/Ages 4 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: $7.99/Available: Fall 2018). Peel the wrapper off of the STAR WARS MICRO FORCE WOW!

I’m a little late to the table about these Hasbro Toys “Star Wars: Forces Of Destiny” Adventure Figures since they were apparently discussed at the 2017 NY Comic Con. In my defense, I really don’t manage to hit any of the panels based on all the running around the overall convention that I am doing and the taking of about a thousand photos. If you doubt me just hit the PiercingMetal Instagram because its dizzying ;p – With that said, I am getting you all into gear as 2018 manifest and share a bunch of the images I downloaded from the folks at Amazon. These “Star Wars: Forces Of Destiny” Adventure Figures are going to bring your little ones playtime into far reaching galaxies for sure. Dig in.
I believe this is the first series of these figures and love how they are referred to as “Adventure Figures” as opposed to the “Action Figures” title that I am so very used to. Since I have shared both the packaged and out of the package images below, I don’t think I need to line out every figure. I’m fairly certain that readers of the website will recognize them immediately.
