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 [...]

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 [...]
