Hot Toys Unveils New 1/6 Scale Rey Figure At Star Wars Celebration

On the eve of this year's Star Wars Celebration, Hot Toys unveiled a new 1/6 scale Rey action figure, which will likely double as an outfit seen at the conclusion of Star Wars: The Force Awakens and the beginning of Star Wars: Episode VIII. This detailed sculpt comes with eight different hand options, Luke Skywalker's lightsaber, Han Solo's blaster, a hexagonal base, and Rey's signature staff.

No release date or pricing details were given, but the figure will be on hand at Hot Toys' booth at Star Wars Celebration. We now just need all toy manufacturers to produce Luke toys from Force Awakens. His absence in the collectible market at this point is baffling.

Niantic Now Taking Requests To Add New Pokéstops And Gyms For Pokémon go

Niantic has created a submission form on its website that allows for the reporting of issues, as well the requesting of new Pokéstops and Gyms.

You can find the form here. Requesting a new Pokéstop/Gym requires a few details like the address and the latitude and longitude of the location you would like to start spitting out Pokéballs and hosting battles. The form also allows folks to submit a request for stops and Gyms to be removed. When we asked Niantic about that process last week, the developer's founder John Hanks said, "Well, from time to time we get a request from a business or an institution to not be a portal or a PokéStop. We gotten a few of those during the beta. We honor that if that request is made."

Valve To Demand Gambling Sites Using Steam Login Cease Operations

Valve is about to get tough on gambling sites built on tradeable Steam items. The company has been facing scrutiny after popular YouTubers were found to violate disclosure rules in promoting a gambling site they quietly owned.

In the coming days, Valve will be sending notices to gambling sites that trade in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CSGO) skins and other items. While the company doesn’t specify how it will pursue these sites should a cease and desist not do the job, Valve implies that it will use other means to isolate itself from the gambling operations.
