Hasbro Pulse Fan Fest Press Release & Images

Hasbro Pulse Fan Fest has wrapped and hopefully, you were able to catch all of the highlights with us today as we posted fast and furious to our social channels throughout the 4+ hour event. We had a great time this morning and felt pretty happy that we came in 4th overall in the Hasbro Pulse Fan Fest Trivia! The events this morning tilted heavily on The Vintage Collection which was a pleasant surprise. Although not to be a downer by stating the facts, the reveals were 95% repaints/reissues with Blue Leader featuring just about the only new figure tooling. While his X-Wing is a very welcomed addition to the 3 3/4" line, the fact that it [...]

Galactic Snackin’ Grogu Press Release

Hasbro continues to up their Baby Yoda game with the release of their animatronic Galactic Snackin' Grogu! Hasbro saw a 70% increase in their Star Wars sales this past year due to the success of their Mandalorian-themed toys. This new Child figure is set to be released later this year closer to the release of Season 3 of The Mandalorian. Now whether or not Grogu will even appear in the next chapter of the series is yet to be known so this figure might just fill the void that many fans may have with the absence of the "star" of the show. Hasbro has provided us the official images and press release: STAR WARS GALACTIC SNACKIN’ GROGU (HASBRO/Age 4 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: $79.99/Available: [...]

More Fan Celebration Reveals

This past week Hasbro continued their Fan Celebration reveals by showing off the next member of The Bad Batch and two all-new Vintage Collection sculpts. Last Thursday, Wrecker was announced to be joining his clone brothers from the upcoming animated series which were revealed a few months ago. The next day on Friday, IG-11 from The Mandalorian and Bespin Lando Calrissian were finally shown off. Both of these figures were part of the pipeline reveals made a few weeks ago during Hasbro's last LiveStream event of 2021. Wrecker was made available for pre-order this past Friday but both TVC figures will be put up for presale in the future. Hasbro has provided us with their official press release information and photos. STAR WARS: THE BLACK [...]

But Where Did the Pins Go?

If you are like a majority of the collectors out there, you have had a difficult time getting your hands on The Vintage Collection's Din Djarin with Child figure from Wal*Mart. This figure was put up for presale in the Fall of 2020 and sold out within minutes. Then in mid-January, a majority of these pre-sales were abruptly canceled by Wal*Mart. A day later this figure was reoffered online but this time as a bundle with an exclusive pin of The Child. Now ironically, those who re-ordered this figure in January, received it before those lucky few who ordered it back in October and never had their order canceled. Upon receipt of the new version with pin, many and dare we say most collectors did [...]

All the Best in the New Year!

As the year 2020 comes to an end, just like Grogu's journey, for many it has been full of ups and downs. May 2021 bring you peace, knowledge, serenity, and harmony. We were thankful for The Mandalorian Season 2 as this year was pretty sparse in terms of the normal blockbuster, superhero and sci-fi fare we enjoy. Plus, this was the first year since 2015 which hasn't produced a new Star Wars film. We are thankful for the announcement of the vast amount of Star Wars content coming in the next five years and can't wait to explore it all with you in our collections. And our expectations are high for the next adventure to drop in 2021, The Book of Boba Fett. But that [...]

The Future of Star Wars

During a tidal wave of new and mostly-amazing announcements made today during Disney's annual Investor's Day presentation, the future of the Star Wars franchise was made known. No less than 10 Star Wars properties were detailed with most of them being revealed for the first time. President of Lucasfilm, Kathleen Kennedy, hosted the LFL and Star Wars reveals. We'll breakdown what was mentioned and revealed about each project below. Motion Pictures Star Wars: Rogue Squadron - Patty Jenkins will be directing a new film in an unspecified time about "a new generation of starfighter pilots as they earn their wings and risk their lives in a boundary-pushing, high-speed thrill-ride, and move the saga into the future era of the galaxy." pic.twitter.com/e3N00xCr5i — Patty Jenkins [...]

Mando Monday #7 Hasbro Press Release

After taking the week off, Hasbro is back for the seventh week on #MandoMonday with new product reveals. Included this week were three new Mission Fleet sets and one fantastic looking Nerf gun. The Blurrg makes its figure debut in this latest wave of Figure and Vehicle sets. Many collectors are already asking how it may scale with the 3 3/4" line showing the need for a heritage scale version, but they will have to wait until Spring to make a comparison. The Mission Fleet 5-pack on the other is already available at Amazon and has been for a few weeks. Hasbro has provided us with their official press release and images below: NERF STAR WARS THE MANDALORIAN AMBAN PHASE-PULSE BLASTER (HASBRO/Ages 8 years & up/Approx. [...]
