Star Wars Rebels

How awesome was last week’s season finale of Star Wars Rebels? Ever since I read Timothy Zahn’s Heir to the Empire, I’ve wanted to see Grand Admiral Thrawn lead a space battle on screen and “Zero Hour” did not disappoint.

My friend Anne recently passed along a box of Star Wars Lego sets that her daughter didn’t want anymore. (I’m still working on getting them put back together, though the transport from the Stormtrooper battlepack of a couple of years ago turned up in one of my photos this week.)

I was surprised to find several Hasbro Star Wars action figures in the box along with the Lego sets, though. Most were from the first series of the Star Wars Rebels line from 2014. And they helped me fill in some holes in my own collection.

I don’t remember seeing the Wullffwarro and Wookiee Warrior two-pack at retail when the line was shipping. I’ve watched the figures on eBay on several occasions since then, but for one reason or other never pulled the trigger. But I’ve got them now… hopefully I can work them into my Star Wars Rebels action figure display somehow.

This Star Wars Rebels Imperial Pilot also helped fill a hole in my collection. By the time I’d decided that he was different enough from the 1996 version to want, he’d disappeared from retail shelves.

You can never have too many Stormtroopers. Until the Rogue One version came out last year, these Star Wars Rebels troopers were my favorite modern version.

These astromechs are not part of the Star Wars Rebels line… I’m pretty sure that they’re from Disney’s Droid Factory Build-A-Droid series. I’m also pretty sure that the two R4 units on the right are the only ones in my collection.

These are awesome, Anne – thank you!
