Review: Jedi Order - Celebrate The Saga

Review: Rebel Alliance - Celebrate The Saga - Amazon Exclusive

We find it rather unfortunate that the best-looking Princess Leia (Hoth) figure is the Photo Real update found in the Rebel Alliance Celebrate The Saga multipack. Luke and Han also look pretty good too. Dang it, Hasbro! (more….)

How can anyone possibly “celebrate the saga” with a set based on The Last Jedi? Also, Hasbro hates Rose. She’s nowhere to be found here. 5POA is never OK, but OUCH, The Resistance Celebrate The Saga multipack is EXTRA painful. Not even the Photo Real helps these monstrosities. Well, maybe a little. Regardless, you’re probably not going to want this one for any reason. Are you buying the rest of these sets for your collection? (more….)

5POA is never OK, but at least Hasbro did something good with the Celebrate The Force multipacks, a parting gift for collectors as they close the tooling archives on these figures forever. The Bounty Hunters set includes a new take on R5-P8 that uses the same tooling as a The Vntage Collection figure. This character first saw release in Disney’s Droid Factory line. The rest of this multipack is a waster Are you buying these sets for your collection? (more….)

5POA is never OK, but at least Hasbro did something good with the Celebrate The Saga multipacks, a parting gift for collectors as they close the tooling archives on these figures forever. The Galactic Empire set includes a new take on R2-Q5, a figure we haven’t seen Hasbro release is 19 years. And the included TIE Fighter Pilot and Snowtrooper sculpts are better than their current super-articulated counterparts. The rest of the set is “meh.” Are you buying these sets for your collection?

Review: BB Units [Blue/White] - Galaxy's Edge Trading Outpost

Hasbro went super-cheap on the BB Units for the Galaxy’s Edge Trading Outpost line. They aren’t from the Disney Droid Factory line. They’re from the 5POA TFA/SW [TLJ] Two-Packs sub-lines, which means they don’t split in half or have a lot of movement or play features. What a huge disappointment. We begin looking at these with the BB Units [Blue/White] set. (more….)

"Best Of" Celebrate The Saga 5 POA Figure Packs Revealed

A major focus of today’s livestream were the new “Celebrate the Saga” figure packs. These packs will offer highlights from the 5 POA figure line for one last time, Hasbro will put the 5 POA 3.75 in line into the “vault” after that. Hasbro said it doesn’t necessarily mean there will never again be 3.75 in 5 POA figures, but these new sets will be the last thing 5 POA fans will get for a long time.
But Hasbro doesn’t just repack old figures here. To sweeten the deal all 5 POA figures receive photoreal updates (unless it’s a masked character) and some sets also get droids never released in the line before, or for the first time released in a realistic style. Click through to see all the new 5 POA figure sets revealed today!

I really didn’t want to complain about much of anything Star Wars collecting related, because there is too much going on in the world that’s inimitably more important. But hopefully, this won’t be interpreted more than an important suggestion to prevent the situation from becoming Hasbro’s siren’s song of doom.

The Retro Collection Boba Fett has just begun hitting retail, and the aftermarket on them is hideous. They sold out in split seconds at Walmart. Yet, no one important seems to be paying attention to this at Hasbro. Well, here is your fair warning to get more produced. Hasbro – here is a reality check for you. I hope that you’re producing SOLID CASE PACKS of Boba Fett from the Retro Collection so 3.75″ enthusiasts can buy anywhere from 5-10 case packs of these when they become available through the Fan Channel. Please don’t disappoint us, and please kill the aftermarket now. You’ve made so many mistakes with the 3.75″ line, please heed our advice and don’t let this important decision slip through your fingers too. Thank you!

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.

We’re done with GOLD stuff now! Aren’t you thrilled? Hasbro phoned it in with the Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker (2019) (C-3PO/R2-D2/BB-8) three-pack. It’s cool, but doesn’t have any newly added characters in it because they didn’t produce any in this scale. Regardless, It’s the focus of our Research Droids Reviews today!
