Mando Mania – Week 3 Press Release

With the debut of Episode 3 of the Season 3 of The Mandalorian just half a day away, Mando Mania reveals their third week of reveals. Hasbro brought out the big guns this week with two highly requested figure reveals. While both were announced via the Pipeline program months ago, this Tusken duo is sure to impress. The Black Series is treated to Tusken Chieftain while The Vintage Collection receives the Tusken Warrior.

Hasbro has provided us with official Press Photos and Information below: STAR WARS: THE BLACK SERIES TUSKEN [...]

TBS NED-B & Purge Trooper Carbonized 2-Pack Press Release

This morning Hasbro announced their next Black Series Amazon exclusive: NED-B & Purge Trooper Carbonized 2-Pack. This set, like previous Cabornized figures, are metallic/shiny repaints of previously released figures. At $75, this set averages the price of each of these figures to $37.50 which is a hefty price for both a basic and a deluxe figure.

The yearly rate of inflation on Star Wars action figures has many fans and collectors feeling fed up and or frustrated with Hasbro's pricing strategies of late. Amazon is known for placing items on clearance when they are left with surplus stock so time will tell if this particular set is successful, but then again it [...]
