The promotional activities for Lucasfilm's Solo: A Star Wars Story is now in full-effect, and that means quite a few new posters. I've enjoyed the western vibe of the U.S. posters, but now there's one out of the UK that is hands-down my absolute favorite. It's vibrant and I did it - plus Lando's bright yellow outfit really pops (see it below). Speaking of Calrissian, if you're like me, you've probably always enjoyed the idea of wearing a short cape like he does. Now, thanks to ThinkGeek (an affiliate of this site), you can have your own Lando Cape, and this slice of intergalactic fashion will only set you back around $70. Now, perhaps you want something a little less flashy - something more subdued that flips the switch between smuggler and scoundrel. In that case, you can pick up a Han Solo jacket very similar to the one worn by Alden Ehrenreich in the new film. Check 'em out...

It's the most-condensed promotion for a Star Wars film that we've ever seen, and personally - I dig it. Due to the close proximity to the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, promotion for Solo: A Star Wars Story had been held back a bit but now it's kicking into hyperdrive! A new TV spot just arrived and it showcases the crew of scoundrels about to pull of a job as we look into the early adventures of Han Solo and his new friend, Chewbacca. What's unique about this spot is that it might be the first example of a Star Wars spot using music from a popular artist alongside the typical score and trailer music elements. AWOLNATION's 2015 track "Run" is featured heavily in this one. Check it out...

This Solo: A Star Wars Story toy feature presented in collaboration between The Rock Father™ and Entertainment Earth...

As modern Star Wars fans, we're pretty spoiled in that since 2015 we've been getting new films every year. We've seen Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015), Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016), Star Wars: The Last Jedi (2017) and this year we've got Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018). And, as J.J. Abrams preps to shoot the Untitled Episode IX (2019), there's a new series of films from David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, a new Trilogy from Rian Johnson and a live-action television series from Jon Favreau all starting to take shape on the horizon. With each new film comes a new range of toys and collectibles, and in recent years we've seen that skew largely toward grownups - the "big kids" who were once little kids when the Original Trilogy (1977-1983) was released, or even stranger to me - the kids who grew up on the Prequel Trilogy (1999-2005). Along the way, I think that sometimes what gets lost is the fact that while many Star Wars toys are being purchased by collectors, there's always new generations who are just experiencing the Saga for the very first time. With that in mind, Hasbro is peppering the release of their new toys from Solo: A Star Wars Story with some new offerings from their Galactic Heroes line geared toward the youngest fans - ages 3-7. And like all the new product launches, there's not only characters from the latest film, but also those from the the past... or "a long time ago... in a galaxy far, far away." My friends at Entertainment Earth sent over one of those new toys - the Star Wars Galactic Heroes 2-in-1 Millennium Falcon, and we're going hands-on in The Toy Testing Facility at Rock Father™ HQ!

Renault is an auto brand that most younger Americans won't be familiar with. I am, and when I was a little kid I was even known to rock a little Renault Racing Suit (photographic evidence below). They've been out of the U.S. market for nearly three decades, but they're still huge elsewhere, and like their strategic partner, Nissan - they've been known to make some trips to a galaxy far, far away. The Renault KADJAR (a "cousin" of sorts to the Nissan Rogue) is currently appearing in a new television spot that's airing in Europe in support of Lucasfilm's Solo: A Star Wars Story. Part of Renault's "Alternative Road" promotion, the Star Wars-themed commercial features Chewbacca helping to protect a mother and son from what appears to be Enfys Nest and her gang of Cloud Riders. Take a look...

With the full trailer for Lucasfilm's Solo: A Star Wars Story now online, it's only fitting that the toys are close behind. I had a chance to check out quite a few of Hasbro's new offerings at the North American International Toy Fair back in February, and on Friday the 13th of April, 2018 - they will be available for purchase! As of now, my friends at Entertainment Earth (an affiliate of the site) have launched pre-orders on a few items from Solo, with the promise that more will become available later this week (stay tuned as I'll be reviewing one of them). Check out the Entertainment Earth Solo: A Star Wars Story toy page, and see below for a sneak-preview of what's on the way.

On May 25, 2018 - 41 years to the day that 1977's Star Wars first hit theaters, audiences will go back to a time shortly before that... a time when Han Solo and Lando Calrissian were just gaining their legendary status. Solo: A Star Wars Story will showcase the smugglers and scoundrels in an one of their early adventures in a galaxy far, far away. Having made its debut on ABC during American Idol, here's the second trailer for Solo - the first to give some real looks at the story. Check it out!
