Today I want to talk about a very simple thing: fun. On fansites you can find lots of comments by people who sound rather disappointed, sometimes even outright angry, especially after one of Hasbro’s live events. So I wondered: how much fun is Star Wars collecting in this day and age to you? If it’s not much fun or maybe even no fun at all… what makes it no longer fun and why do you still collect? And if it’s fun to you, what exactly makes collecting enjoyable to you? So click through for a discussion about the fun (or lack thereof) of collecting!

This week I’ve been playing a new Star Wars video game. Well, new to me as I never had the chance to play it before it’s re-release this week. I know this one is a favorite among Star Wars fans and gamers, and after dumping probably 6 hours or more into it this week, I can see why! Now if I could only get ahold of the Delta Squad 4 pack without giving up my kidney… Click here to share with us what you’ve been collecting this week!

After a long term of availability, the Incinerator Trooper finally went Out of Stock for a while. Now, it’s currently listed back in stock for those interested. You can also still pick up a few of the exclusive TVC carbonized figures.
What reason could there be that Hasbro didn’t tweak the paint operations on this figure to create a unique Battle Droid for The Black Series [Lucasfilm 50] line? Oh well. It’s a Best Buy exclusive.. (more….)

Everyone trying to complete their prisoner’s skiff knows this. Let’s get this figure made! #CompleteTheSkiff #VoteForVelken
Sigh. I shouldn’t have walked away from Hasbro Pulse’s Fan Fest online event saying “Why does Hasbro hate The Vintage Collection collecting community so much? Why are they completely disengaged from its needs?” But I did. And between the sorry repacks confirmed, to the desperately needed repacks they’re dangling over our heads, I understand why people are fleeing from this scale left and right. The straw that broke the camel’s back for me was the announcement of the re-released Han Solo (Endor) figure. Does Hasbro store any record-keeping of their releases? Do they go to discount outlets? Do they have any indication of what fans want? (more….)
