Tier 2: Finally Baby Yoda (& Carded Too)

Hasbro's latest HasLab the Razor Crest ship from The Mandalorian continues to fly high as it has successfully funded the first tier of 8,000 backers. After funding on the second day, backers were offered an Escape Pod as a Tier 1 stretch goal. This feature, while never featured in Season 1 of the show, fits into the top of the ship. Shortly after the fully funding this morning on the fifth day, the second tier goal was announced in the form of a brand new addition to the 3 3/4" line. The Child (Nevarro) will come carded with the HasLab with an "end-of-season-1-pram". No word yet if this will be exclusive to the Razor Crest but with the location naming and pram version, there is [...]

HasLab’s The Vintage Collection Razor Crest

Yesterday's launch of the second Vintage Collection-based HasLab, the Razor Crest, found great success in its launch. The signature ship of The Mandalorian, at the end of the first day, was crowd-funded at 68%. While the price of the vehicle is $150 cheaper than Jabba's Sail Barge, it should be noted that at the end of the first day, it only was backed at 11%. As can be seen below, the Sail Barge took almost the entire crowd-funding period to fully fund. The Razor Crest in contrast is on pace to fund in the next few days making the chance of unlocking the next two tiers very possible during the campaign. While the website appears to still be having some troubles when trying to back [...]

The Mandalorian – An Unusual Unboxing

While school is out in many places around the country and world, we are finding new ways to entertain ourselves. Jake (a middle school teacher) and his 13-year-old daughter/student Evelyn decided to make a quick little unboxing video for the entertainment of their middle school while kids are home this week. Jake attempts to show off some of his recent pick-ups and unbox a Black Series Mandalorian figure. We have already heard from some, young and old, who are interested in uniquely unboxing their own Star Wars collectible, if you decide to, make sure to share it with us and we'll share, repost and/or retweet it. In the meantime, stay home if you can, stay safe and keep those hands clean!

The ITT Comes to TVC

We are beyond excited about today's news (and long time rumor) that the Imperial Troop Transport as featured in The Mandalorian Disney+ series will be coming to The Vintage Collection in March. The detail presented on this toy is outstanding and much like the Imperial Assualt Tank, it will be a piece not to miss. It can currently be preordered for $69.99 as most e-tailers. See below for links! This will be the second vehicle in the line to be based on the hit television series. We can't help but notice the downed TIE Fighter on the package and while we are sure it is just a custom version of a previous release, we'd sure love to have Moff Gideon's version seen in the final [...]

2019 – A Year in Review of Star Wars Action Figures

For Star Wars action figure collectors, 2019 will be a year that will stand out and be talked about for years to come. The final year of this decade has been an unusual one in the world of figure collecting. It has provided us historic toys while also altering 40-year-old traditions and the combination of the two has us entering a new decade uncertain about the future of the hobby, especially when it comes to certain scales. We'll begin our year in review by the various figure scales Hasbro now supports. By the Numbers When it comes to the numbers, there were about 200 figures released throughout 2019 and as you can see 3 3/4" figures outnumbered the amount of 6" figures released. The breakdown [...]
