The lastest Disney Droid Factory Build-a-Droid, BB-BOO20, has now been added to our visual guide. The figure is a simple repaint of their BB-8 buck which entered the line in June of 2017. This figure joins the previous 4 Halloween-themed droids by being released in August. With only one park currently open in the US, obtaining this figure has become more difficult with many folks resorting to the inflated prices on eBay. No word yet if this will become available on ShowDisney.com or app. At the time of print, only The Rise of Skywalker set and the Sandcrawler playset are currently on the app. We'd highly recommend the Sandcrawler especially for fans of The Mandalorian. But speaking of available sets, if you have a Disney [...]
We just couldn't let our last month's 25th Anniversary of The Power of the Force 2 celebration end without adding one more piece to the collection to commemorate the anniversary. Our friends over at Cardboard Galaxy have created a great piece that pays tribute to the beginning of the modern line. The POTF2 Commemorative Display Stand for Hasbro Kenner Star Wars 3.75 Figures is a well-constructed diorama and display stand that can be set-up in one of two ways. This "cardboard" display can be arranged on your shelf both with or without the classic "25 Years" header. The background of the display features the designs and space battle scene that was originally featured on the Froot Loops box that included the mailaway offer for [...]

Today we received word from Hasbro that Gamestop's latest Gaming Greats figures went up for preorder. The two new exclusive Black Series figures include Jedi Knight Revan and Darth Nihilus. While Jedi Knight Revan has been knowing for some time now, Darth Nihilus was a surprise. The Gaming Greats continues to be a source for 6" collectors to obtain popular Expanded Universe AKA Legends characters. Darth Nihilus, like Darth Revan, has been released previously in the 3 3/4" scale but Jedi Knight Revan is exclusive now to the 6" line. This new Revan is also a repaint of Darth Revan which was released in The Black Series in 2016. You can preorder both figures at Gamestop.com and the links are below in Hasbro's press [...]

What was originally intended to be European Convention exclusive, Cad Bane and TODO 360 can now be pre-ordered exclusively in European Countries. A Bane figure has been highly speculated about since the debut of the new packaging for the 6" line as what we now know is the brim of his hat could be seen on an adjoining figure. While this figure is set to be made available in the states in October, it is also rumored that it will appear in the general Black Series and without mostly likely TODO 360. We've received official images and press release info from Hasbro which is as follows: STAR WARS: THE BLACK SERIES 6-INCH CAD BANE AND TODO 360 Figure 2-Pack (HASBRO/Ages 4 years & up/Available: Fall 2020) The STAR WARS: [...]
Now that Hasbro has shown a growing affinity for releasing playsets in The Vintage Collection line, our minds can not help but wonder what could lay in store for the future. So far since the return of the collector-focused Kenner package-inspired line we have received the following sets: Jabba's Sail Barge (The Khetanna) Vehicle (HasLab Exclusive)* Jabba the Hutt Yak Face Jabba's Palace Adventure Set (Wal*Mart Exclusive) Han Solo (Carbonite) Ree Yees Carbon Freeze Chamber (Fan Channel Exclusive) Stormtrooper Tantive IV Rebel Fleet Trooper *yes is it labeled a vehicle but ain't nobody flying this around the room!
