Good news for those of you who like standing in lines! Diamond has announced its exclusives for next month’s San Diego Comic-Con International, with variant covers for comics like Adventure Time and My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, as well as toys like plastic bank limited to 1500 pieces with the somewhat dubious description of being “a fan-favorite repair droid from Naboo.”
Okay, sure, that last one’s just an R2-D2 bank that somebody took a gold Sharpie to, but there’s some neat stuff to be found there as well if you’re into limited variants and exclusive action figures.

Parks and Recreation, a show about politics in a small U.S. town, often finds clever ways to parody various topical issues taking place in Washington D.C. Tomorrow’s episode is no different, as this time they’re taking a shot at much debated filibuster reform, and they’ve enlisted the help of Patton Oswalt to do so. Oswalt, playing the role of one of Pawnee’s many
insane passionate citizens, goes on a completely improvised nerd rant in which he recites what he believes should be the plot of the upcoming Star Wars Episode VII, including an aging Luke, Han and Leia crossing over into the Marvel film universe as they team up with the Avengers, Spider-Man, the X-Men and more to take on Thanos. Not all of the Avengers make it into Oswalt’s cut, as he’s replaced “second tier” characters Hawkeye and Black Widow with noted Marvel A-lister Moon Knight. Naturally.
You can see the full video above, and while this is obviously meant to be a joke, let us all pray to our respective deity’s that no executive at Disney ever hears this proposal.
