Hasbro Pulse Star Wars Fanstream Jan ’24 Reveals

Today Hasbro announced, in their first FanStream of the year, a handful of TVC and TBS figures including multiple pipelined figures as well. If you missed the stream, you can watch here: Of the numerous reveals, we are excited for Cobb Vanth to finally find a place in TVC and the Amazon multipack featuring Ahsoka and her droids. The Retro collection reveals of Episodes II and III were exciting as well but we hoped for solid waves for each film. It would not feel right if we did not express our disappointment with the rerelease of so many figures we have already and the lack of new figures from Ahsoka, Andor, The Book of Boba Fett, The Bad Batch and Obi-Wan Kenobi shows. With The [...]

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.

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 [...]
