Star Wars Black Series - Expanded Universe - Thrawn and Hera Syndulla

I still remember back in 1992 when I stumbled across the newly released book - Heir to the Empire - by Timothy Zahn. It was the first full-blown Star Wars story since Return of the Jedi. I remember the new villain - Grand Admiral Thrawn. He was bad ass through and through. Glad to see him finally represented in 6 inch form.

I've also enjoyed the Rebels cartoons, at least the few I've seen. I really like the crew of the Ghost and Hera Syndulla is a great and powerful addition to the Star Wars universe. Anyone else notice the Ghost in Rogue One? Did you hear the intercom calling for General Syndulla? Fun Easter eggs.

Force Friday finds!

You Like That!?! McFarlane NFL Washington Redskins - Kirk Cousins Variant

Though I grew up in Chicago and am a fan of all things Chicago sports, I have rooted for the DC teams since I've been here for 12 years. Though the team has been inconsistent, I think Kirk Cousins has done a fantastic job for the Redskins. Here is the chase variant figure of Kirk. I didn't realize the base included his famous post game rant quote.

McFarlane NFL - The Pittsburgh Killer B's

Not sure what the Pittsburgh Steelers were thinking when they came up with these uniforms. Are they actually a retro version of a Steelers uniform of the past. Anyway, McFarlane has released chase versions of Ben, Bell and Brown - the Killer B's.

Ben Roethlisberger, L'avean Bell and Antonio Brown. The three offensive superstars are as dangerous as their nickname.
