Fan First Tuesday Press Release – May the Fourth Edition

Yesterday Hasbro Pulse contributed to the fun of May the Fourth with a Livestream on their official YouTube channel. During the event, they announced a number of new figures from both The Black Series and The Vintage Collection. The 6" series welcomed all-new figures to the line while the 3 3/4" line presented the equivalent of a best-of series with a number of repaints and reissues. Fans of the TVC line will be excited that three more figures from The Ninty-Six campaign are being released. A majority of the figures announced yesterday are indeed retailer exclusives so your mileage will vary greatly on actual online availability.

Galactic Snackin’ Grogu Press Release

Hasbro continues to up their Baby Yoda game with the release of their animatronic Galactic Snackin' Grogu! Hasbro saw a 70% increase in their Star Wars sales this past year due to the success of their Mandalorian-themed toys. This new Child figure is set to be released later this year closer to the release of Season 3 of The Mandalorian.

Hasbro has provided us the official images and press release: STAR WARS GALACTIC SNACKIN’ GROGU (HASBRO/Age 4 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: $79.99/Available: [...]

Mando Mondays #3 Hasbro Press Release

This morning Hasbro and Lucasfilm launched their third #mandomondays event and announced two different Black Series items. The first was the Remant Trooper from The Mandalorian. This figure was expected as it is both an easy repaint and was already released in The Vintage Collection line. The downside to this figure is that it is a Target exclusive which means purchasing it online will be difficult as figures typically sell out in minutes. Folks will want to hit brick and mortar stores later this fall to secure this figure. The second item was the piece that was hinted at in last week's This Week in Star Wars episode. The Mandalorian Electronic Helmet will be popular next spring with cosplayers and bucket collectors. Hasbro has [...]
