Rebelscum updates with a nice gallery of the Sideshow Collectibles booth.

First Look At The Hot Toys Booth - Preview Night

Posted by Paul | July 09, 2015 at 08:25 AM EDT |

Our friends at Rebelscum also have the first look at the Hot Toys booth where a gorgeous Princess Leia Organa figure is revealed.

First Look At The Hasbro Booth - Preview Night

Posted by Paul | July 09, 2015 at 08:02 AM EDT |

Our friends at Rebelscum have the first look at the Hasbro booth. As you know, nothing new was revealed, but feel free to check out what was shown. Rebelscum does reveal however that Mission Series will retail for $14.99 this fall! So much for affordable budget figures that now cost the same price as a super-articulated figure a few years ago!

As we exclusively revealed on June 7, 2015 with our exclusive BREAKING NEWS report, Toys R Us has officially revealed their SDCC plans today (right on time) including new official press images of their exclusive Jabba's Rancor Pit set. Ha! Told you Jabba was all-new! :)

Wayne, NJ – June 25, 2015 – Building on its tradition of offering an unbeatable assortment of toys for collectors of all ages, Toys“R”Us today revealed its lineup of exclusive figures and playthings that will be available at the highly anticipated Comic Convention in San Diego next month. Conventioneers and online shoppers will find must-have merchandise based on several fan-favorite entertainment brands, including BATMAN™, MY LITTLE PONY, POWER RANGERS™, Star Wars™, TRANSFORMERS and more at the Entertainment Earth booth (#2343) and online at Toysrus.com/ComicConvention from Thursday, July 9 through Sunday, July 12.*   Click through for more!

   

Hasbro And Other Licenses Present At Tokyo Toy Show

Posted by Paul | June 25, 2015 at 07:47 AM EDT |

The Tokyo Toy Show is underway and Hasbro has a presence there. Japanstarwars.com is covering thr show. Don't worry, nothing new has been shown yet (if at all), but you may want to keep checking back during the event to see if anything new gets revealed there. Of particular note, Bandai has a pretty incredible presence there so you may want to check out what they're offering. Is it just us, or is it painful to see Hasbro's 3.75" Chopper figure on display as if he is available or something?

SWCA: It's A Wrap!

Posted by Chuck | April 20, 2015 at 03:17 PM EDT |

While sitting here waiting for my flight to leave LA I thought this would be a perfect time to detox and wrap up the main portion of our coverage! First off a big thanks to Paul for working the homefront and getting the galleries up and posted! While I had my boots on the ground he was pushing pictures through as fast as possible! (more...)

Also, please take a moment to visit and thank our sponsor Brian's Toys! Without their help we would not have been able to cover as much as we did. Their sponsorship of our coverage was a huge help!

We held off until the very end of SWCA to bring you this unique first look gallery of many of the card backs (the reverse sides of course) of The Black Series figures (both scales) as well as a "not behind glass" closer inspection of the newly revealed 6" Ahsoka Tano. As far as TBS packaging is concerned, you'll notice that bios (and images from the 3.75" scale) are being removed in favor of multilingual basic text and warnings (what a shame) even in the collector line. Anyway, check out the new images. We don't think you will find them anywhere else on the web, but hey, stranger things have happened. Click through for more!

SWCA: Jakks Pacific (Jaig Eyes Boba Fett Coming!)

Posted by Paul | April 19, 2015 at 12:37 PM EDT |

Next up is our gallery for Jakks Pacific, a licensee that has "on fire" passion for the Star Wars brand. Oh, and it looks like we were right about the Boba fett being the prototype "Jaig eyes" Boba Fett. So they were actually incorrect about this version of Boba Fett never being available as a collectible toy before now. Anyway, check out their offerings now!
