We are honored to have teamed up with our good friend, the illustrious Victoria from Victoria’s Cantina, this year to conduct our Hasbro Q&A during San Diego Comic Con. We also entered the current century because the Q&A is in the form of a video. This time YOU get to see the wry smiles and illuminating expressions on the Hasbro Team’s faces. While we focused our efforts on learning as much as we could about The Vintage Collection, there is plenty of stuff here on The Black Series 6″ line and 5POA as well. Reissue older 6″ figures? Gray-haired Han Solo? Using 6″ to make SA 3.75″ and vice versa? Will there be more 40th anniversary love in TVC? Will there be 40th The Empire Strikes Back figures? What about the fate of playsets? You’ll get the answers to all of these questions and more, so be sure to check out what this beautiful bunch of people had to say by clicking the thumbnail below!
Our friends at Rebelscum.com have a great gallery of the Hasbro booth on Preview Night at SDCC. If they don’t make these diorama pieces for actual sale, then Hasbro is making the biggest mistake of their lifetime. Check out these gorgeous backdrops!
Disney snuck this one in under the radar. This is a new Elite Series Die-cast 6″ six figure gift set that was limited to 500 pieces only. Unfortunately, the only new figure in there is the Scarif Stormtrooper which I think looks great. Hopefully, this figure makes it to retail in its own packaging along with the Premium Elites released at D23 later on this year. Thanks to JTA reader and friend Charlie for the find!

You are? Well, how much do you enjoy standing in lines? Lines, lines, lines, and more lines! Star Wars Celebration is the same way. If you want exclusives, let’s face it, you’ll be in a line most of the day. Wouldn’t it be great if there was another way? Well, there is and I think it is time that everyone gets on board.
