The President of The Toy Association has officially released a memo saying that NY International Toy Fair in Dallas and New York are officially postponed. Simply put, that means the events are canceled until further notice. This may not be an issue at all moving forward. Hasbro and other companies can Livestream showrooms and presentations as needed now. See the full story HERE.

After the three hour long Marvel Legends presentation that showed off what felt like 10,000,000 new figures the Star Wars team took the stage. And while many Star Wars collectors will probably feel let down by the scarcity of actual new things we didn’t know about already, Hasbro did show off at least a few nice things for The Black Series! So click through for all the things that were revealed at Toy Fair for the Black Series!
Did you miss out on the livestream? Do you want to look at the slides longer than they allowed? We painstakingly screen-capped the key images of new products revealed.

For those wanting to tune in today, here’s your friendly reminder that Hasbro is livestreaming their Entertainment Brand Preview Event on their Hasbro Pulse Facebook page. The livestream starts at 1:30 PM ET. We will be distilling all of the line reveals in separate articles so that anyone interested can discuss accordingly.
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?
Yesterday the all new Amazon exclusive LEGO Razorcrest set was announced. It will retail for $129.99, on Amazon (it will also be available from LEGO directly). Release date is September 1st, 2020. The set has 1,023 pieces and comes with several minifigs: The Mandalorian, an exclusive Baby Yoda, IG-11, Greef Carga and a Remnant Scout Trooper. The Razorcrest has at least one all new part, the cockpit piece. Will you add the LEGO Razorcrest to your collection?

While nothing was officially revealed for The Vintage Collection or The Black Series today, I suppose we will have to wait for Hasbro’s Toy Fair panel for that, the all new Mission Fleet was introduced – on io9, the source for Star Wars collecting news serious collectors use (note: sarcasm). So let’s take a quick look at what the Mission Fleet is!
