Obi-Wan Kenobi (Wandering Jedi) Press Release

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mXdBNPDIA2o Yesterday, the action figure of the wandering Jedi and star of the Obi-Wan Kenobi Disney+ series went up for preorder across the web. While the product description does state this figure will be out a good year following the release of the live-action series, our sources have produced information to the contrary. We have received multiple reports stating this figure will be out this Fall. Also in the clip above, Ewan McGregor is presented with a packaged sample which includes the soon-to-be-removed plastic packaging window but Hasbro has stated they will remove all plastic by the end of 2022. So while Star Wars Hasbro figures continue to lag behind their media releases (unlike their Marvel counterparts), fans and collectors will be receiving this product [...]

Bring Home the Bounty – Bonus Bounty #7

Yesterday, Hasbro provided exclusive Star Wars action figure reveals to two different websites: CNET and IGN. CNET was given the latest Black Series figure to showcase which is loosely based on the comic book version of Black Krrsantan. This figure is a repaint of a Chewbacca with a new bandolier. This figure was met by frustration by collectors online hoping to get a screen-accurate version of the character. Hasbro's stance behind Fan Channel (aka e-tailer) exclusive figures such as this are that they are bonus figures in the line and would not normally exist.  Hope by fans that a more accurate figure will be created but with Hasbro's currently MO it will be an exclusive deluxe figure with a lengthy ship date. IGN showcased three [...]
