Head over to our friends at Banthaskull.com for more pictures! I’m very excited for these releases. IG-11 being all-new is shocking in a really good way. Let us know what you think in the comments!
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.

Much doom and gloom has been spilled in the last few days it seems. It’s sad to hear of people leaving the hobby because they couldn’t find a figure at the store. They have their reasons, but I have to ask myself, “Is it really all that bad?” There are several reasons why I don’t think things are as bad as some of the more pessimistic views make it sound.

In our worry over the fire going out on 3.75″ collecting Paul discussed earlier, there is a spark that will light the fire that may inspire you once again. It definitely gives me some hope for upcoming figures to come!! Click through for the full video… Full Story
