Bring Home the Bounty – Bonus Bounty #7

Yesterday, Hasbro provided exclusive Star Wars action figure reveals to two different websites: CNET and IGN. CNET was given the latest Black Series figure to showcase which is loosely based on the comic book version of Black Krrsantan. This figure is a repaint of a Chewbacca with a new bandolier. This figure was met by frustration by collectors online hoping to get a screen-accurate version of the character. Hasbro's stance behind Fan Channel (aka e-tailer) exclusive figures such as this are that they are bonus figures in the line and would not normally exist.  Hope by fans that a more accurate figure will be created but with Hasbro's currently MO it will be an exclusive deluxe figure with a lengthy ship date. IGN showcased three [...]

Bring Home the Bounty – TVC & TBS Product Reveals Press Release

Today Hasbro provided us with the latest preorders which go live tomorrow, February 8th. The two new items include one Vintage Collection figure and one Black Series. Both figures are from The Mandalorian and the Vintage Collection figure revealed is a Din Djarin in the Imperial disguise he wore on Morak during Season 2. The second figure announced today is the highly desired Darktrooper.

HasLab x2 – It’s Now or Never!

As of this writing, we are under 24 hours left for fans to back the HasLab Black Series 6" Rancor! This crowdfunding campaign is currently at 62% funded which is unprecedented for a Star Wars HasLab. Both its predecessors, the Sail Barge and the Razor Crest funded before the final day. This particular project has seen some setbacks due to the choice of stretch goals not connecting with collectors and some sites and groups actively campaigning against the beast due to a number of reasons. Some have also argued that the competition of the Ghostbusters and GI Joe HasLabs have slowed the success of the Star Wars project especially as all three are taking place during the holiday season when wallets are tight. Hasbro [...]
