After their greatest Toy Fair Presentations in five years, I’m holding Hasbro to a higher standard to what each convention event should reveal. I jogged my memory and remembered 2011’s San Diego Comic Con was one of their many highlights from the past. (Check out the slide presentation gallery by click thing image below.) I hope that this year’s 2018 SDCC event will take the necessary strides forward to mimic the best presentations of years’ past. Great things are in store, but we want to see the signs of that proof now. So Hasbro, please make this year’s SDCC event the greatest in five years too!

Wow! And here is the Scarif Stormtrooper assortment! You get THREE of them in this case! 3x Scarif Stormtrooper Squad Leader, 3x Captain Cassian Andor, 2x Imperial Death Trooper, 2x Sergeant Jyn Erso, 1x General Lando Calrissian, 1x Admiral Ackbar. Too bad there are too many other unnecessary figures in this case. Pre-order at Entertainment Earth now! By the way, is it just me, or is the absolute most inopportune time to put these up for pre-order. Half of this case will directly compete with The Vintage Collection repacks!

Sainsbury’s (a supermarket chain in the UK) have Star Wars [The Last Jedi] 3.75″ figures for sale. What’s interesting at this particular location, however, is that the male characters are on the shelf with a full £11 price tag. But the female characters are ‘reduced to clear’ at £7.33! Someone needs to do something about this. The female characters of Star Wars deserve the same higher MSRP as their male counterparts. Special thanks to JTA reader Shoretrooper for this disconcerting turn of events.

Hasbro: please help a community out. This is the ONLY version of a Tonnika Sister on the market today. It’s a Micro Machines figure for Pete’s sake! We know you can make ONE of the characters now, so please do it for The Vintage Collection? She would make a great Hasbro Toy Shop exclusive (or something) too! She is an iconic addition to our cantina dioramas. It’s not complete without her!

As much as many of us like to criticize eBay for all of the “evil” people who sell on there, it has proven to be a great gauge for what Star Wars items go for on the aftermarket. In a very short moment of downtime, I curiously searched for three Star Wars characters (their respective action figures) across three definitive periods of collecting eras. I tried to pick characters of equal prominence but gave the Sequel Trilogy an advantage with a more popular “B” character. First I searched for the classic vintage Kenner Walrus Man (of which there are hundreds). Then I jumped to our modern era of Sequel Trilogy collecting and decided to choose Maz Kanata randomly. Once again, there are hundreds of her available as well (hundreds of each scale). Then I jumped to a random point in time during the Golden Age of Collecting and chose The Vintage Collection’s Wooof action figure. There are less than a dozen. (more….)

BUT WHO WILL IT BE? It’s always fun to speculate what’s coming next from Hasbro, and this is especially true when it comes to San Diego Comic Con exclusives. Hasbro has already let it “slip” that there will indeed be a The Vintage Collection SDCC exclusive this year. So, based on past experience, we’re going to surmise what it might be. Click through for more.

Throughout modern Star Wars collecting, there have been multiple types of collectors. These include the crazy zealots like myself who buy at least one of everything. Then there is the casual collector that only picks up his or her favorite characters. Lastly, there are people like CJ who claim to be collectors, troll collecting fan sites, buy nothing Star Wars toy-related and offer unsolicited opinions about the hobby and what Hasbro should do next. Don’t worry; I’m not singling anyone out, I am merely just expressing that all types of fans exist and are welcome in our community. While we’re all on equal playing fields as collectors, Hasbro does sometimes listen to what the loudest noisemakers are saying. And that all came to pass hugely in 2010 after getting small teases in 2004, 2006 and 2007. A reawakening also transpired in 2017. (more….)
