Yesterday Hasbro shared the next Gaming Greats figure coming to GameStop, Republic Commando Boss! This figure comes from the Republic Commando game which debuted in 2005. Now as each soldier wore nearly the same armor, it is a good bet that this buck will be reused for additional releases of Delta Squad and perhaps characters from the first season of The Bad Batch. These figures have been released a few times before in the 3 3/4" scale first during The Saga Collection and then later during the Shadows of the Dark Side series which ran congruently to The Clone Wars line. This figure went up for the pre-order this morning and Hasbro has sent over the official press release and images which is as follows: [...]
These new figures joining the Black Series and The Vintage Collection lines are inspired by the popular 1980’s animated series STAR WARS: DROIDS (The Adventures of R2-D2 and C-3PO).

Today Hasbro announced an amazing line of Star Wars figures featuring the card art of the 1985 line of Star Wars: Droids (The Adventures of R2-D2 and C-3PO)! The press release blurb uses the the term "popular" in regards to the series from '85, but we are more certain these figures will 100% be popular to new and old fans alike. Each is exclusive to Target which throughout the [...]

Today Hasbro has shared with us their latest take on their immensely popular roleplay lightsaber line! In the last 4 decades, lightsabers have not only been a staple of Kenner and Hasbro but has continued to evolved with the times. From blow-up inflatable sabers to prop replicas, fans of all ages have enjoyed pretending to be their favorite Jedi, Sith or even more recently Mandalorian leader. Granted their previous efforts in the past two years failed to hit with audiences (Scream Sabers and Lightsaber Squad) but Lightsaber Forge appears to be a return to what has worked in the past with Blade Builders. We have received official images and information which you can find below: STAR WARS LIGHTSABER FORGE BLADESMITH LIGHTSABER Assortment (HASBRO/Age 4 years [...]
