Hasbro's latest HasLab the Razor Crest ship from The Mandalorian continues to fly high as it has successfully funded the first tier of 8,000 backers. After funding on the second day, backers were offered an Escape Pod as a Tier 1 stretch goal. This feature, while never featured in Season 1 of the show, fits into the top of the ship. Shortly after the fully funding this morning on the fifth day, the second tier goal was announced in the form of a brand new addition to the 3 3/4" line. The Child (Nevarro) will come carded with the HasLab with an "end-of-season-1-pram". No word yet if this will be exclusive to the Razor Crest but with the location naming and pram version, there is [...]
Yesterday's launch of the second Vintage Collection-based HasLab, the Razor Crest, found great success in its launch. The signature ship of The Mandalorian, at the end of the first day, was crowd-funded at 68%. While the price of the vehicle is $150 cheaper than Jabba's Sail Barge, it should be noted that at the end of the first day, it only was backed at 11%. As can be seen below, the Sail Barge took almost the entire crowd-funding period to fully fund. The Razor Crest in contrast is on pace to fund in the next few days making the chance of unlocking the next two tiers very possible during the campaign. While the website appears to still be having some troubles when trying to back [...]

In just under 26 hours, Hasbro's latest HasLab funded completely. The Marvel Legends collectors showed up in strides when it came to backing the $350 Sentinel which stands at 26" tall. The figure was limited to just five per person. Its body a towering, technological marvel, the Sentinel scans the world for its quarry, a searching light emanating from its chest, its glowing eyes a warning… and a threat. Programmed with only one objective, to destroy all mutant life on Earth, the Sentinel will not hesitate, will not falter, and will never ever stop hunting. Rising from the pages of Marvel comics, appearing in everything from cartoons to movies to video games, the Sentinel is as a monumental part of Marvel lore, an iconic [...]
