It’s that time of the year again when companies report their quarterly earnings. Hasbro did so a little more than two weeks ago, Disney followed this week. So how are things? Don’t expect all that many details, especially regarding Star Wars, as usual, no numbers are given, but we have some statements at least that tell us how the brand is doing. So click through for a brief overview!
Welcome, readers! It’s Toy Run Tuesday again, and I have a few great new toys to share with you today. I hope to see your week’s finds in the comments, too! Please click here to check it out!
According to CNBC, “sales of [Hasbro’s] licensed content from entertainment studios fell 12% to $1.08 billion for the full year, [but] its sales of Star Wars grew by 70% over that period.” That’s a pretty hefty percentage for a single year. What on earth, do you suppose, could have possibly contributed to such an increase in sales? That’s rhetorical, by the way.

How much do you think The Black Series vs The Razorcrest campaign contributed to these numbers? Let us know what you think in the comments!
