Celebration Anaheim: Q & A with Hasbro

During Star Wars Celebration Anaheim next week From4-LOMtoZuckuss.com will be conducting an interview with members of the Hasbro Star Wars Brand Team. We have lots of burning questions of our own but we are also interested in what questions you may have for Hasbro. I you have a question you'd like us to ask Hasbro for you please send it to 4LOMKUSS@gmail.com or through our official Facebook or Twitter pages. Now do know that Hasbro does indeed appear to still be in a The Force Awakens blackout as they sent the following to us: "Also please note that the team will not be able to answer any questions pertaining to unrevealed Fall 2015 products." We look forward to discussing your need-to-know questions with Hasbro and even more so celebrating [...]

Vizago’s Vanishing Gun

It appears that Hasbro is pulling a few new tricks out of their bag. In the newest wave of Mission Series packs from the Rebels Saga Legends line Hasbro has created a holster which can fit a sidearm much bigger than the acutal holster. Here you can see Cikatro Vizago's blaster next to his holster. The blaster is clearly longer but once you place the pistol in the holster you can see that it fits completely into the holster. Hasbro's new design allows the weapon to go inside the figures leg thus keeping the accurate dimensions of the character's accessories as seen in the computer animated series. This is a simple yet very effective feature for this 5POA figure.  This takes us back to discovering that Kenner's Han [...]

2014 the Year of 58

As 2014 comes to a close Hasbro will be shutting the books on their 19th year of producing Star Wars action figures.  It goes without saying that 2014, although better than 2013, was not a banner year for the toy producer’s Star Wars line. Distribution problems still existed, product offerings were very light, advertisement was minimal and public “collector” opinion about their 5 points of articulation didn’t improve. But despite these criticisms, Hasbro continued a long tradition of giving children, fans and collectors some great Star Wars toys to play with and collect! Now to hear which figure and vehicle we specially liked (and disliked) the best from 2014, you’ll need to make sure to listen to Episode 37 of Galaxy of Toys Podcast. While [...]

Hasbro’s Star Wars Timeline

Yesterday MTV.com published a timeline of Hasbro's Star Wars action figures. The timeline is geared more for educating new viewer on where in the Star Wars Saga the new animated series Star Wars Rebels takes place.  The image is very cool but is not a true timeline of the actual figures as it only uses figures from past couple of years (specifically The Black Series, Movie Heroes and Saga Legends lines). As stated by our good friend Criz Bee of Jedibusiness.com, one glaring oversight with the timeline is the lack of any reference to the 6 Season run of The Clone Wars. No word yet if this will actually see print form as a holiday or convention giveaway but if such information surfaces we will [...]

Speculative Star Wars Rebels & Ep VII Figures

Last week's reveal of Toys 'R' Us' upcoming Star Wars Rebels Mission Series exclusive The Ghost, featuring a holographic Obi-Wan Kenobi, prompted us to revisit Dan Curto's leaked Rebels photo from earlier this year.  Now with the knowledge gained from Hasbro's San Diego Comic-Con presentation, we are fairly certain we can speculate about the numbering of and wave assortment of the upcoming Rebels figures. We know from online pre-sales that the first case available will include 12 different figures.  The first six being from the new animated series with the rest pulling from the previously released Saga Legends figures. We have 'X'd' out the figures that have been officially announced from Hasbro and color-coded them to match the photo's wave color-code.  Basic Figures - Wave [...]
