As you know, Hasbro Pulse will reveal news items today at 3 PM via outlets across the web. We thought it would be a fantastic time to keep Hasbro accountable to longtime The Vintage Collection collectors that they honor their recommitment to the Original Classic Kenner 96. Below we listed 15 characters we’re desperate to see realized in The Vintage Collection line, and especially the packaging. Is it possible Hasbro will announce any of these characters for us today?

Hasbro Pulse advertised a Star Wars Fan Event Day for tomorrow, March 31st a couple of days ago. New products will be revealed and that is confirmed. But do you think anything “new” besides what most of us pre-ordered on Amazon that they accidentally put up for pre-order on February 24th will be shown? Does anyone expect new 6″ figures to be revealed as well? So far, we know these five The Vintage Collection figures are coming. We have the orders to prove it.

Hasbro To Reveal New Star Wars Figures On March 31st

Hasbro Pulse reveals that new figures will be revealed on March 31st for Star Wars Fan Celebration Day! Stay tuned for more!

It seems our worst fears, a lack of Star Wars toys, will not come true. In fact, things look quite good for Hasbro! Hasbro’s stock price rose more than 12% today, after Brian Goldner said in a statement to CNBC that Hasbro is seeing an increased demand in toys and that supply chains in China are up and running again. Hasbro may miss a few shipments, but they are catching up and Goldner expects that by April they will be fully caught up again. It seems that people staying at home are buying more board games than before, Goldner mentioned Monopoly, Operation and Play-Doh as some of the toys that see increased demand. So even if many of us may have to stay at home a while longer, we will most likely not have to live without new Star Wars toys!

Without any announcement Hasbro put an all new action figure toyline up on their website. And it’s a new scale too! Meet the new budget 9.5 inch Star Wars action figure toyline. MSRP is $9.95. For now you can buy four characters, Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker (ROTJ), Kylo Ren and a First Order Stormtrooper. Articulation is extremely limited. These are actually 4 POA figures, the points of articulation are the shoulders, head and the waist. So yes, no leg articulation at all. Click through for images of the figures out of the box!

Hasbro announced earlier today that their Star Wars team will have some changes. Product Design Manager Sam Smith, who we last saw at toy fair, will no longer be on the team, he will stay with Hasbro and work on other action brands. Instead Chris Reiff will join the team as an Associate Principal Designer. Reiff has experience working  as an illustrator for various Star Wars books and products. Vickie Stratford will remain the design lead.

However, the big news is that Mark Boudreaux will retire. He’s been with Star Wars since the inception of the toyline when he joined Kenner in early 1977. Mark had a hand in designing every Kenner/Hasbro Millennium Falcon toy over the past decades. Fans will certainly sorely miss him. But all good things come to an end and Mark will hopefully enjoy his well deserved retirement after working on Star Wars toys for 43 years.

Thanks to Cybereye for the alert!

It looks like Hasbro has made an update to the Imperial Stormtrooper (VC140) addressing the issue with yellowing torsos. JTA reader Josh sent in this image with a comparison picture featuring a newly released Stormtrooper versus an early release. The figure on the left has an obviously whitened torso compared to the earlier release, which shows signs of yellowing. Entertainment Earth still has this up for pre-order if you missed it the first time or are interested in the updated non-yellowing version.

Brian Goldner Talks About Star Wars In Earnings Call

Last Friday Hasbro presented their Q4 and full year 2019 numbers. Previously, I showed you several detailed charts. But since almost nothing can be deduced about the performance of Star Wars it makes little sense to dwell on the numbers all that much. So I will only briefly touch upon the numbers in the article and include two charts! More interesting are the statements by Hasbro, and here mainly by Brian Goldner, made in the earnings conference call with analysts. So what does Hasbro has to say about Star Wars? Click through to find out!

You’d think that after 25 years of owning the license rights to the Star Wars toy line that Hasbro would know characters like the Imperial Stormtroopers and Boba Fett need to be produced at extremely higher numbers than say, oh Lando Calrissian and Han Solo (Hoth). Hasbro/Walmart – the Retro Collection Boba Fett sold out in moments and everyone is mad and frustrated that we’re going through this once again. Please get Boba Fett solid case assortments made, and get this highly-requested and wanted action figure in stock again ASAP! This isn’t an issue with limiting quantities. Everyone should be able to order as many as he or she wants.

What Is Hasbro's Strategy For Star Wars In 2020 And Beyond?

Following the rather lackluster Toy Fair presentation one has to wonder what Hasbro’s strategy for Star Wars is, now that the license has been extended for a new multi-year deal. With the Mandalorian still fresh on people’s minds, Baby Yoda still very popular and a brand new season of The Clone Wars airing on Disney+ right now one would think that Hasbro would focus much of its efforts on supporting the two new shows. Especially given that fact that The Mandalorian has proven to be extremely popular with most collectors. But instead we got (almost) nothing for either of the two shows. So what is Hasbro’s strategy? Click through for some thoughts!

Amazon has opened pre-orders for today’s two TVC basic figure reveals: Power Droid (VC167) and Luke Skywalker (Jedi Knight) (VCV175)

Hey TVC collectors! Is it possible that Lando Calrissian (Sandstorm Outfit) (VC89), Luke Skywalker (Hoth Outfit) (VC95), Darth Malgus (VC96) will be joining the all-new Episode 4 Power Droid? Entertainment Earth has redacted the names but left numbers either for misdirection, or they forgot to remove them! What do you think? Only one figure from the three makes sense.
