Review: Hasbro Black Series Ahsoka Tano (Star Wars Rebels)

After months of searching for her in local toy stores and keeping an eye out for good deals on Amazon, I’m finally the proud owner of a Hasbro Black Series Ahsoka Tano action figure thanks to a good friend and follower of Team Ahsoka. It seems that no matter how beloved a character is, fans will inevitably struggle to get their hands on it… especially if they live on this side of the Atlantic. Supply issues aside, the action figure ... [Continue Reading]

James Raiz’s Ahsoka Sketch Featured on ‘The Star Wars Show’

If you tuned in to watch Ashley Eckstein on The Star Wars Show on June 28, you may have noticed that her interview with Andi Gutierrez was immediately followed by a segment about James Raiz’s saga-spanning hand-drawn artwork, a project he began in November 2016 and took upwards of 400 hours to complete. The final piece did not include any of the animation-only characters from The Clone Wars or Star Wars Rebels due to its focus on the ... [Continue Reading]

Dave Filoni Sheds Light on Ahsoka and Kanan’s History

In what has recently become a weekly info drop, Star Wars Rebels executive producer Dave Filoni revealed that Ahsoka Tano and Kanan Jarrus had met each other long before the events of the season one finale, ‘Fire Across the Galaxy’. This revelation couldn’t have been more timely as it was something I had given some serious thought to just a few days earlier. Ahsoka and the-then Caleb Dume are quite similar in age (there’s ...

When Ahsoka Met Bendu…

If you follow Star Wars Rebels’ executive producer Dave Filoni on social media, you’ll know that he has a penchant for dropping bombshells when you least expect them… such as mere hours after Ahsoka Tano’s debut in Star Wars: Forces of Destiny. Not content to let fans ride the euphoric wave of Clone Wars nostalgia, Filoni decided that this was as good a time as any to send a shockwave through the fanbase and casually ... [Continue Reading]

Ahsoka Tano (Fulcrum) Added to ‘Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes’

There’s no word yet on whether Ahsoka Tano will be a playable character in the upcoming Star Wars: Battlefront II and she hasn’t made the leap into the popular MOBA game Star Wars: Force Arena, but fans of the immensely popular (and highly addictive) Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes will be pleased to hear that Rebels-era Ahsoka Tano has finally been added to the game’s roster. Although Clone Wars Ahsoka has been a playable ... [Continue Reading]

In Tune With Tano: A Playlist For Ahsoka Tano

Every so often, my Twitter followers will ask me which songs I feel are a perfect fit for Ahsoka, or I’d stumble upon Star Wars-themed playlists elsewhere on the internet, such as Jen Strawn’s Sabine-themed soundtrack or the character playlists on Spotify, which come complete with groovy lightsaber progress bars. Normally I’m terrible at compiling playlists for fictional characters; I struggle to find tracks that I feel relate ... [Continue Reading]
