COMING SOON: POP! STAR WARS - THE CHILD FROM THE MANDALORIAN

Funko Pops! Reveal The Child The Mandalorian.  Love it or ha...Lets be honest there is no one who hates it.  It's brought balance to Star Wars fans (well not in the UK anyway but that's another story, bah!)  Anyway, it was only a matter of time before Funko used their Force to bring us their unique interpretation of the popular characters from the Disney+ show.  In particular, Baby Yoda, oops!  I mean The Child.

Here's what they sent me along with those juicy pics.

Embrace the cuteness of the newest Star Wars character by pre-ordering Funko's "the Child" Pop! in both standard size AND a near-lifesize 10-inch version! He may look like a Baby Yoda, but this lovable creature is referred to as "the Child."

Inspired by the Disney+ live action series The Mandalorian, this adorable little alien is a perfect addition to your Pop! collection. Always at the forefront of pop culture, Funko is excited to announce the item will be available for shipment in early …

20 Easter Eggs In The Xfinity E.T. The Extra Terrestrial Ad

20 E.T. References You May Have Missed In The Xfinity Advert The TV advert of the year is easily the four minute E.T. The Extra Terrestrial "sequel" from Xfinity.  In it we see E.T. returning to Earth to visit his now grown up friend, Elliott played by Henry Thomas.  It really is a wonderful nostalgic trip down memory lane.

Fans of the 1982 classic from Steven Spielberg probably picked up a number of Easter eggs in the commercial but some are so fast and subtle that they are easy to miss.  Thanks to Scotty Robson who sent a number of observations, we just had to share with you.  Let us know if we've missed any.

Photo of the day - Warwick Davis and his Ewok costume from Star Wars: Return of the Jedi

The official Star Wars YouTube channel are little teasers as they've gone and released a Rise of Skywalker featurette and there's one piece in that video that has taken the Internet by storm.  It's this picture (below) where we see Warwick Davis gearing up as an Ewok.  Now, this has caused speculation that the furry little Empire beaters are back in the last of the sequels and Davis will reprise his role as Wicket.  Anyway, our picture of the day is a young Warwick Davis in his original suit ready for a scene in Return of the Jedi.

You can also watch the featurette below.

MUST WATCH: E.T. Returns Thanks To Xfinity

E.T. Has A Holiday Reunion.Xfinity, a cable television, Internet, telephone, and wireless services provider has released what could possibly be one of the best commercials I've seen in years.  In the new ad we see E.T. returning to Earth to visit his old pal, Elliott after a 37 year gap only to find that Elliott, once the young lad has grown up and now has a family and a rather nice house.  E.T. soon fits in and has some fun with the whole family including a few flying bikes and a reveal of E.T. now having his own family.  Incidentally, Henry Thomas does actually reprise his role as Elliott in the commercial.  It's effectively E.T. 2 in four minutes.

It really is well put together and even has the iconic John Williams score.  Of course it wouldn't be complete without the Spielberg trademark shooting star. Look out for it.

Variety tell us:
“Our goal is to show how Xfinity and Sky technology connects family, friends and loved ones, which is so important during the holidays,” …
