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 [...]

SDCC 2019 – The Hasbro Booth

As we prepare for Hasbro's Star Wars panel, which begins today at 2 PM PST, we can't help but pour over the images from Hasbro's booth this year in anticipation. Hasbro once again impresses with the sheer amount of product and displays including a very impressive Sarlacc and Jabba's Palace diorama. Now our friends over at Rebelscum have inquired about that many of the "new" figures in the Jabba's Palace dio, which include  6" versions of the Rancor, 8D8, EV-99, Gonk droid, and even a tortured 2-1B droid, and as of now it appears they are all customs for the display. But as fans recall the Trash Compactor Luke was also considered a custom in a previous Hasbro display until a year later he was [...]

Star Wars Celebration Anaheim 2020

UPDATE:  All 4-Day pass sold out in about an hour! Star Wars fever is high! Even though Star Wars Celebration Anaheim is 432 days away, tickets for the Star Wars mega-con went on sale this morning. Most were in queue for longer than usual which reinforces the ideas that despite what some about Disney's take over of the franchise, Star Wars is as popular as ever with fans! So popular that according to the LA Times, 65,000 fans attended Celebration this past April in Chicago. After 41 minutes in a virtual queue (with a student assigned each period to watch my computer as it is the last day of school) we were able to make our purchase. In shock to no one, the $900 Jedi Master [...]
