HasLab Sentinel Funds in 26 Hours!

In just under 26 hours, Hasbro's latest HasLab funded completely. The Marvel Legends collectors showed up in strides when it came to backing the $350 Sentinel which stands at 26" tall. The figure was limited to just five per person. Its body a towering, technological marvel, the Sentinel scans the world for its quarry, a searching light emanating from its chest, its glowing eyes a warning… and a threat. Programmed with only one objective, to destroy all mutant life on Earth, the Sentinel will not hesitate, will not falter, and will never ever stop hunting. Rising from the pages of Marvel comics, appearing in everything from cartoons to movies to video games, the Sentinel is as a monumental part of Marvel lore, an iconic [...]

Fan First Monday Press Release & Images

Yesterday, Hasbro live-streamed their first-ever Fan First Monday event (you can watch it here). The event revealed products for both The Black Series and The Vintage Collection. It is assumed that these would be some of the announcements that were originally set for San Diego Comic-Con this year but due to its cancelation, Hasbro is revealing them online. It was discussed during the stream that exclusives intended for the event are still being worked out in regards to their release. Hasbro is continuing to support the 40th Anniversary of Episode V in both their scales and the much-rumored Bespin playset made its official debut. Now as rumored, this set requires two playsets to make the whole Carbon Freeze Chamber and preorders for this set and [...]

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 [...]

Coming in 2020…So Far

With New York Toy Fair just three weeks away, it's that time of year where folks begin speculating about what we can expect to be revealed at the annual toy event. Now before you go too deep into the wishing well of 2020, we thought we'd remind you of what has been officially announced to date and what Hasbro has planned for the reset of this year. The Vintage Collection April VC45  Clone Trooper (PhotoReal Reissue) VC 164  Cara Dume VC165  Remnant Stormtrooper VC166  The Mandalorian Now with the success of The Mandalorian, of course, it only makes sense that each of these figures is released this year. Now while the Clone Trooper may feel out of place, you never know what familiar faces from [...]

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 [...]

The Rise of Skywalker Figures

With yesterday's World Premiere from the "blue" carpet in Hollywood, The Rise of Skywalker has finally been released onto the world. While we await the public release of the film this Thursday, December 19th, we thought we would take a minute and highlight the figures released from the final chapter of the Skywalker Saga. For Episode IX, Hasbro chose, for the first time in 40-years, not to create a dedicated line for the latest Star Wars film. Because of this, fans have seen a drastic reduction in the number of figures available at the release of a new film. Hasbro has mentioned that they have had to hold up to 75% of their product back from retailers until after the film debut due to their spoiler nature. With just [...]

Lucca Comics and Games Press Release and Images

This past weekend was another busy one for Hasbro's Star Wars Brand Team as they held two different panels while wrapping up their EU Convention tour. The first batch of reveals was done at Lucca Comics and Games Convention that was held in Italy. At the convention when it came to new products, Hasbro followed the same pattern of reveals as they did the week before and announced two Black Series figures and one Vintage Collection figure. But at this show they included four additional reveals for the Vintage Collection in the form of another wave of online exclusive reissues. Now we are still working through information collected at the convention, but it appears that the Clone Trooper while being a reissue will be a [...]
