Blue Leader Paging R2-R9

In our interview yesterday with the Hasbro Star Wars Brand Team we asked which Astromech they suggested collectors use with recently announced General Merrick's X-Wing Fighter when it is released later this Fall. This question stems from the fact that this figure has never been released in the 3 3/4" scale nor any line in actuality, not even LEGO. So Patrick was kind enough to do some research and check with some Hasbro designers and supplied us with an answer: R2-R9   R2-R9 was first released in 1999 and was an exclusive figure packed in with the Episode I Naboo Royal Starship Blockade Cruiser/Playset. The droid was simply called an R2 Unit on the packaging and as you can see it features a red body [...]

Shoretrooper: Variant or Error?

A fellow Washingtonian and listener of TOY RUN, J.R., sends in a report and image of what appears to be a 3 3/4" Scarif Stormtrooper (or Shoretrooper) variant. Of note in the image provided, is the missing white and black stripe on the trooper's left shoulder. Both of the troopers pictured were purchased at the same store on the same day, according to J.R.. At first, we assumed this could be a running change from Wave 3 to Wave 4 but this was not the case as both versions that we, and JediBusiness.com, have obtained from both waves featured the black and white stripes. Fred Meyer, the store in which these originated from, have begun receiving Wave 3 of the Rogue One and therefore the [...]

New 12″ Hero Series Vehicle Multipack

This past month, Collectors in the UK have been treated to an unannounced 12" Hero Series vehicle multipack. The set consists of what appears to be a repack of the 12" Darth Vader that has been a part of the modern 12" line since 2013 and a repaint of last year's Biker Scout and Speeder Bike set. This set has been found so far only at Asada and no word if this will be an exclusive or not. A huge thanks to Paddy B. for the images and we have now added this multipack to our 12" Action Figure Hero Series Checklist, the only complete modern 12" checklist on the web (mostly because this is a kid-focused line and not directed toward nor of interest [...]
