Lightsaber Forge Press Release

Today Hasbro has shared with us their latest take on their immensely popular roleplay lightsaber line! In the last 4 decades, lightsabers have not only been a staple of Kenner and Hasbro but has continued to evolved with the times.

The Clone Wars Line – A “Basic” Disappearing Act

When The Clone Wars cartoon hit theaters in 2008 it was met with a huge toy line push which only continued to grow stronger in the following two years. The animated series, which came to an end last year with its Season 7, introduced a set of new characters to fans and a new animated style of figure for collectors. The proceeding Clone Wars line based on the micro-series also had a line of hyper-animated figures but it was nothing compared to the mega-hit TCW eventually became. No Star Wars animated property (Droids, Ewoks, Clone Wars, Rebels & Resistance) even when combined can match the massive line that The Clone Wars series produced. The Clone Wars action figure line came to be around the time [...]

Begun The Black Series Clone Wars Have

Today revealed the next Lucasfilm 5oth Anniversary line which consists of four new Black Series figures on 2008 Clone Wars cardbacks.

Hasbro did make the Clone Pilot sculpt that Hawk uses in the original Clone Wars line but they never released the Hawk deco. These figures are set to be Target [...]
