Xandra Harbet

Xandra Harbet is an assistant editor at Adventure Publishing Group. She does weekly toy reviews for The Toy Insider and contributes to trade magazines The Toy Book and The Licensing book. When Xandra isn't writing or attending conventions, she's dancing around her room in Supergirl cosplay, jammin' out to Britney Spears. She once had to stash her lightsaber behind a bush at the Rogue One premiere because the theater had a lame 'no Kyber crystal weapons' policy. Her friends insist that she's the poster child for Gryffindor because she's staunch in her beliefs and recklessly tries to change the world. You can follow Xandra's wild adventures on Twitter @stakingmyheart.
