Playing “The Mandalorian” on Thanksgiving

Today is a day to give thanks and we are thankful for The Mandalorian and those who bring the show to life! As anyone who is active on social media or who likes to hang out at the watercooler on their breaks can tell you The Mandalorian is a huge hit not just with Star Wars fans but with viewing audiences overall. Reports have come out this week that the Disney+ show unseated (after 21 weeks) Stranger Things Season 3 as the most viewed streaming series. For those who have been watching the series, know that beyond Baby Yoda, there are numerous characters who collectors would love to see in plastic someday. While we wait for the first 3 3/4" figures from the show to drop [...]

Bestbuy’s 6″ Heavy Infantry Mandalorian

In an amazingly well-timed release by Hasbro, Bestbuy announced their next Mandalorian exclusive just a day after the character's screen debut. The latest 6" figure to join the slow buy steadily increasing line of figures based on the hit Disney+ series, is the Jon Favreau-voiced character in which Hasbro refers to as "Heavy Infantry Mandalorian." This character, based on Chapter 3's credits, is referred to Paz Vizla which is very close to one of Favreau's other famous characters from The Clone Wars series. In that series, he played a different aggressive blue-armored Mandalorian by the name of Pre Vizsla. The coincidence seems too uncanny not to be related. But regardless of the origin of the character, we are excited to be getting this version in [...]

Hasnotalent’s 3 3/4″ Blurrg = Happiness

This morning custom action figure designer @hasnotalent released a micro-run of his new 3 3/4" vintage-styled Blurrg creature. The beast which was limited to just 10 pieces sold out near instantly when it went up as a claim sale at 8 AM PST. This amazing digital sculpt not only includes a harness but an opening for an action figure to ride to replicate the technique Kenner used in the 70s and 80s. As the headline of this article states, this creature makes us very happy. Not only because we had the speed of a Jedi in claiming one this morning but we are huge fans of all things related to The Mandalorian and when it comes to the 3 3/4" line, the show has only [...]

Lucca Comics and Games Press Release and Images

This past weekend was another busy one for Hasbro's Star Wars Brand Team as they held two different panels while wrapping up their EU Convention tour. The first batch of reveals was done at Lucca Comics and Games Convention that was held in Italy. At the convention when it came to new products, Hasbro followed the same pattern of reveals as they did the week before and announced two Black Series figures and one Vintage Collection figure. But at this show they included four additional reveals for the Vintage Collection in the form of another wave of online exclusive reissues. Now we are still working through information collected at the convention, but it appears that the Clone Trooper while being a reissue will be a [...]
