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.

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.

The Vintage Collection NYTF Reveals - All THREE of Them!

Well, I’m not sure why I was expecting to see Mandalorian and Clone Wars merchandise this Toy Fair. It’s not like The Mandalorian was the number one tv show when it aired, and fans haven’t been greatly anticipating the return of The Clone Wars for nearly a year now. Nevermind all that, what we want are repacks! At least they look nice. Click through to check them out!

Millennium Falcon Mission Fleet Vehicle Revealed

It turns out there is one more vehicle coming to the all new Star Wars: Mission Fleet toyline. The official reveal on io9 the other day didn’t mention one very important vehicle, but Hasbro released press photos of it earlier today. There will also be a Millennium Falcon Mission Fleet vehicle with Han Solo figure. The cockpit opens and Han can sit inside of it. You can also open up the back to reveal the holochess table and enough space to have two figures sit down (however, they don’t sit around the holochess table). As with all the other Mission Fleet sets you also get some kind of minigun that fires projectiles, it can be mounted on a small treadspeeder, both parts can also be attached to the Millennium Falcon.

Does this new Millennium Falcon interest you?

The wait is finally over, after months and months of speculation Hasbro and Disney finally announced that both companies will extend their partnership and that Hasbro will continue to make toys for both Star Wars and Marvel! This is a multi-year deal and covers both theatrical releases and shows on Disney+!

Not much else is known at the moment, i.e. how much was paid, if royalty rates are more reasonable now or when the new agreement will expire. We will update this article once we learn more!

What are your thoughts now? Are you happy that Hasbro will keep making Star Wars toys (and Marvel Legends, of course)? In my opinion Hasbro was and is still the best partner for Disney. Leave your own thoughts in the comments!
