Hasbro Pulse revealed via their Social Media pages a new The Black Series exclusive Heroes of Endor set.
This will be available exclusively on Hasbro Pulse (US & Canada only). This premium set inspired by the Star Wars: Return of the Jedi includes 4 figures: Han Solo, Princess Leia Organa, Luke Skywalker, and Paploo, plus a Speeder Bike and 6 accessories.
The first-ever Hasbro PulseCon is happening on September 25 & 26, 2020 exclusively on the Hasbro Pulse YouTube Channel.
This 2-day virtual event gives you, the fans, access to your favorite Hasbro brands, reveals, entertainment, & more. Click here for more details.
So, what do you think Hasbro will reveal tomorrow during Fan First Friday? Will the HasLab be revealed? Will Hasbro announce they’re completing the Kenner 96 in one fell swoop. Are we getting ou long-awaited Death Star? Will they make the Tantive IV? Will we get more cantina aliens and Jabba’s Palace aliens since Hasbro treats them terribly in the modern line? Or will it be another The Black Series 6″ show loaded with everything 3.75″ collectors want in 6″ scale instead?
We reported that Hasbro Pulse is doing some internal housekeeping when it comes to the customer’s experience on their site. One of the complaints was the lack of notice when items would charge and ship. Well, JTA reader Mark received a notification email explaining that Zeb Orrelios would be shipping in the near future. So change is in the air! Now we just need to see those order history screens improve!
Hasbro Pulse updates their blog with a history of the various snowspeeder and pilot toys they produced throughout the years. However, they made a big blunder when they reference 2009’s Legacy Collection Luke Skywalker (BD51) figure as the first “snowspeeder pilot” Luke Skywalker action figure. They write “It’s worth mentioning that until 2009, no Luke Skywalker Snowspeeder pilot figure had ever been released. We had Dak Ralter from 2002’s The Power of the Jedi, and Zev Senesca from 2006’s The Saga Collection, but no Luke. This changed with his addition to The Legacy Collection.” No, this is very incorrect. The first version came in 1995 as Luke Skywalker (In X-wing Fighter Pilot Gear). It had the wrong name, but the right outfit. Then they included an updated version of this figure in 2002’s POTJ Luke Skywalker’s Snowspeeder exclusive set. They even mention this release in the blog but neglected to acknowledge the Luke Skywalker figure included with it. Last but not least, Hasbro added a kit-bashed version of Luke Skywalker in the snowspeeder outfit in 2007’s TAC The Battle Of Hoth Ultimate Battle Packs set. (which coincidentally is the only version of Luke Skywalker with correct mismatched orange pants and jacket)! Come on, Hasbro, we’ll gladly proofread your historical accounts for you!
