https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mXdBNPDIA2o Yesterday, the action figure of the wandering Jedi and star of the Obi-Wan Kenobi Disney+ series went up for preorder across the web. While the product description does state this figure will be out a good year following the release of the live-action series, our sources have produced information to the contrary. We have received multiple reports stating this figure will be out this Fall. Also in the clip above, Ewan McGregor is presented with a packaged sample which includes the soon-to-be-removed plastic packaging window but Hasbro has stated they will remove all plastic by the end of 2022. So while Star Wars Hasbro figures continue to lag behind their media releases (unlike their Marvel counterparts), fans and collectors will be receiving this product [...]
Hasbro kicked off the celebration of this year's May the 4th Day with their very own Livestream on the Hasbro Pulse YouTube channel! During the Fan First Wednesday event, the Brand Team did announce they would be returning to conventions this month with Star Wars Celebration. The reveals in regards to what was shown for The Vintage Collection consisted 100% of reissued/repainted figures. The same went for the reissue box set of the Retro Collection that will be at first a Disney Park exclusive. The Black Series faired a bit better with multiple all-new sculpts with Endor Leia, Figrin/Nalan, and New Republic Security Droid. The 187th Trooper is the only straight repaint presented during the 45-minute show. In addition to all of the reveals [...]

This morning Hasbro Pulse featured a number of reveals on their Fan First Wednesday Livestream on the Hasbro Pulse YouTube channel. Members of the Star Wars Brand Team Jing and Eric hosted the show and in addition to the number of figure reveals provided in the press images and release below they also gave a few pipeline updates and a hint at an upcoming Cantina Band set. Pipeline reveals for The Vintage Collection included the following from The Mandalorian: The Black Series pipeline reveals were also from The Mandalorian and the Grogu figure already has fans speculating on all that will be included with the figure to justify the new $25 price point of The Black Series basic line. In much the same vein [...]

A few weeks ago we had the distinct pleasure of lending our thoughts to Geek. Dad. Life's latest debate on who the best toy maker of the 90's was. Host Jay Glatfelter took on Toy Anxiety's Ryan Doell with moderation from co-host John and Yes Have Some's Craig Goldberg in a no-holds-barred debate between Playmates and Toy Biz. Many opinions were offered from various ToyTubers and we were honored to be asked to toss our thoughts into the ring (spoiler - we went all in for Hasbro). You can join in on the fun by watching in the link below!

We are delighted to share with fans and collectors an exclusive reveal of the next Gaming Greats Black Series figure! The 13th Battalion Trooper from Jedi: Fallen Order will be joining the 6" line next Spring. This figure will be available for pre-order this St. Patrick's Day, March 17th, at 1 PM EST. Eric Franer, Hasbro's Star Wars Brand Team Product Designer, had this to say about the figure: The 13th Battalion Clone Trooper has a really striking pattern across their chest, and they have a similar color palette to the 212th battalion — but we wanted to make sure the color felt unique. It was so much fun to see the flashbacks to Cal Kestis as a young padawan and interacting with Jaro Tapal’s [...]
