Coming hot off of the weekend's Comic Con Paris reveals, Hasbro gave preview of two additional figures coming in 2019. At the MCM London Comic Con panel, Hasbro showed off the upcoming Battle Droid figure for The Black Series and a Vintage Collection R2-D2. Hasbro's Star Wars Design Director Steve Evans has stated that 2019 would focus on the prequels and this reveal is inline with those comments. The R2-D2 coming to The Vintage Collection is the same Build-a-Droid (BAD) figure included in the upcoming SOLO: A Star Wars Story figure droid 2-pack as seen here: This particular Artoo, includes 5POA (a removable dome, removable legs, and jointed feet) which is an odd choice for a collector line like The Black Series which includes a [...]

This week Starwars.com released an article detailing the second wave of the upcoming Black Series 6" Archive collection. This series which focuses on releasing popular characters from The Black Series line with some photo-real printing upgrades. The Archive line has been two years in the making, due in large part to the fans who talk directly to the Hasbro executives on the convention circuit. “We’ve actually been discussing this in one form or another for literally the past two years,” Schneider says. “And it was just based on this idea: Fans would say, ‘It’s great that you’re releasing 4-LOM. I want 4-LOM. But for 4-LOM to make sense, I also need Boba Fett and Bossk and IG-88.” Hasbro has provided us with press photos of wave 2, [...]

Disney's Droid Factory Sandcrawler crew to date! Thanks to TOY RUN: The Star Wars Action Figure Cast listener Sammy L., we have received and added the Disney Parks exclusive Droid Factory Sandcrawler Playset to our Build-a-Droid Guide! The set is rather fantastic, as it, like its predecessor the Starspeeder 1000, has lots of sounds and light-up features. One of the stand out features includes a working electronic droid elevator. The set is very large and more than doubles the Kenner version which was re-purposed in the Hasbro line in 2004. The Jawa figure (left) included with the set features ball-jointed shoulders and swivel wrists but no other articulation. The mold is different but very similar to Hasbro's Jawa figure (right) from The Black [...]
