The Black Series Gets More Carbonized Figures!

Since collectors seem to like carbonized figures Hasbro is making more of them. The official Star Wars site revealed earlier today that the Black Series will get three new carbonized figures from The Mandalorian. Available in spring 2022 will be Paz Vizla (formerly known as Heavy Mandalorian), a Shoretrooper and a Scout Trooper! All three figures will be TARGET exclusives. Happy hunting next year!

Will you add the carbonized Mandalorian figures to your collection or will you skip them?

Head to the official Star Wars site for the reveal!

This week’s Bad Batch adventure was very predictable after last week’s setup. I wonder if that is what modern Star Wars boils down to… nostalgic familiarity and offering fans more of what they know and like, instead of something completely new. Read my spoiler review for “Rescue on Ryloth” by clicking here or on the banner and let’s discuss if this is what Star Wars should really be.

HasLab Rancor - Underwhelming Or Exciting?

Hasbro accidentally revealed what the upcoming Black Series HasLab is going to be: a Rancor. Now the big question is: is a Rancor all that exciting or actually kind of underwhelming? All the previous Star Wars and Marvel HasLab items impressed with their sheer size, how does the Rancor fit in here? So let’s look at the sizes of a few HasLab items to see how a Black Series Rancor would compare!

Update: after yesterday’s slip up Hasbro has now officially confirmed that the Rancor will indeed be the next Star Wars HasLab! The official Star Wars site has the announcement! And Patrick may get no dessert for the next month or so.

I finally managed to watch and review the latest Bad Batch episode “Bounty Lost”. It’s the European Football Championship (delayed for a year thanks to a certain virus), a major sport event here in Europe, which means there’s not much time to watch other things. And on Tuesday Germany will face England in Wembley in the round of the final 16 teams. Anyway, here it is, the review of the latest Bad Batch chapter. With Omega in the hands of Cad Bane and en route to hand her over to the Kaminoans she has to find a way to escape. Things don’t get easier when someone else shows up who also wants Omega. With the Bad Batch far away Omega has to fend for herself… So let’s discuss “Bounty Lost” and read my spoiler review!

What Do You Want The First Black Series HasLab To Be?

The announcement of a very first Black Series HasLab was certainly a surprise! Patrick would not reveal any details, of course, other than that the item will not be a vehicle! So what could it be? It more or less boils down to a creature and/or figures. Unless it’s a diorama piece / playset? So what would you like the very first Black Series HasLab to be? A Rancor? Jabba’s Palace playset? Or maybe a set of Cantina aliens? Leave your suggestions in the comments!

Rangers Of The New Republic No Longer In Development

“Rangers Of The New Republic” was announced last year alongside multiple other Star Wars projects. Not much is known about the series, other than that it’s a Mandalorian spin-off, just like “Ahsoka”. But then Mandalorian star Gina Carano was fired by Lucasfilm earlier this year and that has apparently thrown a wrench into the works. Click through for the full story!

Distribution of Star Wars action figures has been an ongoing topic for quite a while now. And the pandemic certainly didn’t make things easier. I pre-ordered Kit Fisto and a few other figures at a local etailer back in December 2019. Original release date was spring 2020. Spring came and I received a notification that Kit Fisto is not available and that the figure will be shipped a little later. Only to receive yet another notification that Kit Fisto is still not available when that time came… and then he got pushed back again… and again… and again… and again… fast forward to May 2021 and I had actually given up on ever getting Kit Fisto, not that he’s a particularly good figure to begin with, so I was not too upset, but lo and behold, the figure finally became available and so in early May 2021 I received a figure I had pre-ordered 17 months earlier.
What is the longest time you ever had to wait for a (Star Wars) figure after pre-ordering it?  Share your stories in the comments!

Waiting….
