Review: Han Solo (Flight To Alderaan) - SW [S - P3] - '03 #27

Posted by Paul | July 27, 2016 at 12:35 AM ET |

Another figure that beat us into repack submission was Han Solo (Flight To Alderaan). A good figure, it just didn't need to be released a bazillion times in the early to mid 2000s.

Hasbro Exclusives To Go On Sale August 9th

Posted by Chuck | July 26, 2016 at 07:36 AM ET |

Hasbro Toy Shop has posted that the CE3 and SDCC exclusives will be available for sale on Tuesday, August 9th. No time was listed, so it looks like it will be a refresh-a-thon. Thanks to all our readers who wrote in to let us know it was posted! Hasbro posted this FAQ:

When will the Comic Con exclusives be available on the site? Although subject to change, we are planning on having the Convention Exclusives available to order on Tuesday, August 9th.The product will be located in the EXCLUSIVES category. No phone orders will be accepted. All Convention Exclusives are excluded from any promotions and discounts.

What will the limits be for the figures? The limits will be the same at the show and on the site once they go live. These limits are per person and per household.

Can I get on a waiting list for Comic Con items? No, HasbroToyShop.com does not have a waiting list for any items including Comic Con items.

Can I preorder Comic Con items? No. We will not be preselling the Comic Con items.

UPDATE: After playing with some URL combinations I found the EXCLUSIVES category, which is currently NOT listed on the site.

Probably the last figure any of us wanted to see repacked in 2003 was Princess Leia Organa (Imperial Captive). These confusing repacked figures were mixed with with some great new figures.

Hasbro Toy Shop To Post When TBS6 Exclusives Go On Sale

Is Constable Zuvio The "TPM 3D" Of 2015?

Posted by Paul | July 25, 2016 at 05:21 PM ET |

So, we know from conversations at SDCC that Hasbro is well aware of distribution issues. But we want to know what they are going to do about it. The image below accurately illustrates the state of what so many stores look like right now, and now that we know the line look isn't changing, it's unlikely the assortment numbers will change either. If assortment numbers don't change, then this means that new products will be instantly blocked until this old product moves out. Do you see the awful vicious cycle folks? Anyone? Anyone?

Review: Darth Vader [Anakin Skywalker] - TAC - Saga Legends

Posted by Paul | July 24, 2016 at 12:40 AM ET |

The very first Saga Legends line in 2007 was for the most part a collector's dream come true. Hasbro packed some good choices into the line. Darth Vader [Anakin Skywalker] wasn't really one of them.

The very first Saga Legends line in 2007 was for the most part a collector's dream come true. Hasbro packed some good choices into the line. Chewbacca was an OK choice.

There is a Darth Vader (Emperor's Wrath) Mini Bust coming from Gentle Giant Ltd.

The Black Series 2016 Cheaters' Choice Poll

Posted by Paul | July 22, 2016 at 11:38 AM ET |

A mere few hours ago, Jaina Solo had only 17% of the vote. Dengar was even catching up to her (like only a couple of percentage points away from each other). Now that we're in the final hours of voting, she and Starkiller have been tripping over each other and their percentages have jettisoned to new and ludicrous heights. And once reigning champion Darth Talon has sunk to Jaina's last night low. Too bad this poll runs right up against the Hasbro presentation. There is no way possible for StarWars.com to sift through all of the "off by one number" IPs addresses that are abusing the results in time. (Edit: some say it is cookie based – thank you Incognito browsers!) But if they do, man, are they going to be peeved. There are 108K votes cast. That doesn't even make the least bit of sense. For those of you that think I don't want Jaina to win are wrong. I like the character. I loathe ballot stuffing.

The 2016 Convention Exclusive R2-D2 (Unpainted Prototype) 1:6 Scale Figure is.... interesting. We'll leave it at that here. But you can learn more in our Research Droids Reviews.

5POA Rogue One Stormtrooper Removed From Display Case

Hasbro may not be showing any Rogue One until stuff tomorrow, but JTA reader and friend Josh M. forwarded us an image from GalacticHunter.com where a Rogue One Stormtrooper 5POA figure is revealed. Hey, we'll see better images tomorrow, but you can check it out now. (It was pulled from the case once they realized it was on display.)

Gentle Giant Ltd. Announces PGM Holiday BB-8 Mini Bust

Gentle Giant Ltd. announces their PGM Exclusive Holiday gift. Click the image for more information.

Hasbro has just tweeted that the TBS6 Princess Leia Organa figure has arrived. And while it's a given that I am a conspiracy theorist, this in my opinion another hand-painted sample and the production figures will NEVER come close to looking like this. Some feel that this version isn't any better either. We'll see what arrives at retail. "We LOVE Princess Leia!" Can't you tell?

Brand New Media Event Year.... Same Old Responses

Posted by Paul | July 21, 2016 at 04:20 PM ET |

Look what official Star Wars writer Jason Fry posted on his Twitter page. Quick answer: It's' the response to every Hasbro Q&A SDCC this year! The madness has begun folks! (For those that don't get sarcasm, this is sarcasm.) We LOVE Princess Leia! (not Jason Fry's words....)

Look at what the Hasbro SDCC exclusives are fetching on eBay!

Celebration Catch Up: Rebels Season 3 Trailer Breakdown

Posted by Mike_Taber | July 21, 2016 at 02:03 PM ET |

The trailer for season three of Star Wars Rebels certainly got a lot of people talking. From the introduction of Grand Admiral Thrawn(!) to the continued threat of Darth Maul, it appears we’re in store for a very eventful third season. It’s time to delve deep into this jam-packed trailer. Click through for the full breakdown

Celebration didn't feature a big Episode VIII announcement, but director Rian Johnson was on hand to talk about the process of bringing the latest chapter in the Star Wars saga to life. Although we've heard a lot of what he said before, Johnson offered up some interesting information when he listed six films that influenced the direction of Episode VIII. The six films he mentioned were Bridge on the River Kwai, Gunga Din, Sahara (1943), Letter Never SentTwelve O'Clock High, and Three Outlaw Samurai. It's definitely an intriguing group of classic movies and they almost exclusively take place during the middle of war. It will be interesting to see how directly these films influenced Episode VIII.
