Rather bewilderingly, the Doctor Aphra SDCC set is still in-stock online. If you still haven’t picked up this set, I personally recommend it – especially for the amazing droids (don’t see too many of them around anymore). Check out our review of the set here!
Here is another SDCC interview we missed this year. Flyguy’s Six Inch Show has an interview with STeve Evans that’s worth checking out! Special thanks to JTA reader Matthew C. for the alert!
Yodasnews had the opportunity to talk to Steve Evans and Joe Ninivaggi at SDCC and asked them several questions. Definitely check out the interview and click through for a few key details from the Q&A!

Hasbro revealed at their SDCC panel that they will introduce a new 6 inch figure line. A greatest hits line called “The Black Series Archive”. Hasbro will release 4-8 figures each year, they will select highly sought after figures for this line. All figures will come on blister cards and all human figures will be updated with the photo real technology. The first four figures, coming later in 2018, are Boba Fett, Bossk, IG-88 and X-Wing Luke with photo real paint apps!
The highly anticipated Hasbro panel revealed plenty of new Star Wars. Click through for a quick recap!

Aphra set is SOLD OUT!
What a coincidence! My logic was right on the money! Hasbro reveals via io9 that there will be a The Vintage Collection Special Action Figure Set three-pack including Doctor Aphra! Amazing set! It also includes Triple Zero (0-0-0) and BT-1 (BeeTee) which likely will remain exclusie to this set! Great job, Hasbro! This set looks fantastic!
We know that there will be both 3.75″ and 6″ Hasbro exclusives for SDCC this year. You saw my speculation on what the 3.75″ TVC exclusive might be (Doctor Aphra), but I also have thoughts on what the 6″ SDCC exclusive will be. (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.
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!
Fresh from the booth at SDCC, Sideshow unveiled the new Sixth-Scale Obi-Wan Kenobi Mythos figure. You can see more of the preview at Sideshowtoy.com and jump on the RSVP list.
