What started with an ebay auction of a single 3 3/4" Kylo Ren figure turned into a day full of leaked action figure reveals. Flooding social media today, the following are the photos that appeared from @ChuckDukas and others throughout Twitter and Facebook. So far there are 12 basic figures which feature a combiner feature. As it appears in Aurebesh, "COMBINE FOREST GEAR" is written below each combiner piece. The figures appear to follow the Snow/Desert/Jungle/Space themes rumored a few months ago. All but one of the characters featured in the first wave have been seen before. The exception would be Constable Zuvio who made his debut today. Also revealed today were 8 Armored figures. Each comes with what we speculate to [...]
We are back from our Summer hiatus and just in time to get ready for #ForceFriday this coming September 4th. We are stoked for the onslaught of new Star Wars merch that will be coming between now and the end of the year. While we were away a little event called San Diego Comic-Con took place and brought with it quite a few reveals and surprises. The least revealing was that of Hasbro as they showed very little (and this we'll break down in a future article for historical purposes as its been covered quite thoroughly fellow Star Wars Community members). Many have grumbled over Hasbro's lack of reveals for the upcoming Midnight Madness but as our friend Matt Fox pointed out on his highly informative podcast [...]
With San Diego Comic Con just a few days away we have received our time slot for a ten minute interview with Hasbro's Star Wars Brand Team. If there are questions you have about their Star Wars toy lines please let us know and we'd be happy to ask Hasbro for you! Please contact via the usual channels below: Send an email to 4LOMKUSS@gmail.com Comment on this article on our official Facebook page Send us a Tweet on our official Twitter page Now one unique thing about Hasbro's solicitation for interviews this time is that is it did not include the all too common ban or stipulation about The Force Awakens questions. This is of course not confirmation that TFA questions will be answered but [...]
Yesterday morning's announcement of Hasbro's Star Wars San Diego Comic-Con 2015 exclusive left us scratching our heads and a bit perplexed. The lack of a 3 3/4" action figure offering is a bit disappointing, as this year's SDCC would the last big event prior to the line's launch on Force Friday (September 4th, 2015). Its scary to think that the cards may be starting to become stacked against the original scale that started it all. We believe Hasbro when they say the 3 3/4" line isn't going anywhere but what we may not be reading between their lines is that it may not be the golden child it once was. Here are just a few of the observations we have made in regards to Hasbro's new favorite [...]
