Leaked: Triple Force Friday Star Wars Black Series Revealed! | Green Card Back

October 4th marks Disney’s “Triple Force Friday”, the day on which merchandise for Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker, Jedi: Fallen Order and The Mandalorian officially meets the world.

From ‘First Edition’ white boxes to retailer exclusive colour schemes, click through for the figure reveals that we’ve seen so far…

Positive Fandom #3: The Vintage Collection

Positive Fandom #3: The Vintage Collection | Green Card Back

Earlier this year Star Wars all but disappeared from my display shelves.

The POTF2 Millennium Falcon, a Black Series OT Stormtrooper helmet, a boxed Sphero BB-8 and the 1997 Special Edition VHS box set (the silver widescreen edition) were the only hold-outs on shelves resplendent with Transformers and comic books.

To give that enthusiasm a voice, it’s time for a list article. Click on through for GCB’s 5 reasons to be cheerful for the Star Wars Vintage Collection in 2019!
