Mando Mania – Week 4 Press Release

Today kicks off the 4th week of reveals from Lucasfilm's Mando Mania event which coincides with the weekly release of The Mandalorian Season 3 episodes. Hasbro, much like last week, dropped two great-looking figures for their two collector-centered lines. The Black Series is treated to a Deluxe "multipack" of Luke and Grogu from their time in Jedi training. While the price is a bit steep for a single 6" figure and series of diorama accessories, the set is sure to be popular for multiple reasons with fans and collectors. The second figure features a super-articulated version of Cad Bane from his The Book of Boba Fett appearance. Cad is also being released shortly in the Retro Collection line for folks who can not wait for [...]

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. Both of these figures hail from The Book of Boba Fett figures and while the TBS is not due for another year, the TVC figure will be up for pre-sale tomorrow and will ship this Summer. 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. NED-B previously retailed last year for $33.99 and the Purge Trooper for $24.99. 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 [...]
