I didn’t pick up on this detail immediately. I read the news post but didn’t “absorb” it entirely which led to my double-take. Perhaps this is a “nothing burger,” but I still found it interesting. Sarah Carroll, Brand Marketing Manager of Star Wars (Hasbro) and Sam Smith, Design Manager (Hasbro) will be joined by members of Lucasfilm at the Hasbro Star Wars panel this year. It will be the first Hasbro presentation (that I can recall) that has Lucasfilm employees present. Could the format of this presentation have changed to help address the new changes in the line, or is the indeed something more here? This post is 100% speculation and nothing more. But let us know your thoughts.

It’s hard to believe, but San Diego Comic-Con is right around the corner. Before it begins, we wanted you to weigh in on your speculation of what licensees, specifically Hasbro, will reveal this year at the show. We’ve been hinted since Toy Fair that 2019 will be a year like no other in a very long time, post the Golden Age of Collecting. But will those rumors be revealed to be true? Anyway, let us know what expectations you have for The Vintage Collection, The Black Series 6″ line, vehicles, multipacks, and stuff from other licensees in our comments.
For fans of the series it may be hard to believe, but Star Wars: The Clone Wars will celebrate its 10th anniversary this year.

A preview for Timothy Zahn’s upcoming novel Thrawn: Alliances, which focuses on Grand Admiral Thrawn and Darth Vader, was released yesterday.

After their greatest Toy Fair Presentations in five years, I’m holding Hasbro to a higher standard to what each convention event should reveal. I jogged my memory and remembered 2011’s San Diego Comic Con was one of their many highlights from the past. (Check out the slide presentation gallery by click thing image below.) I hope that this year’s 2018 SDCC event will take the necessary strides forward to mimic the best presentations of years’ past. Great things are in store, but we want to see the signs of that proof now. So Hasbro, please make this year’s SDCC event the greatest in five years too!
Yeah, baby! You read that right. We are TRULY getting back to the good old days when Hasbro focused on the best line in the world: The Vintage Collection. JTA has learned that there will be a The Vintage Collection focused San Diego Comic-Con exclusive this year! Feel free to speculate on what it will be in our comments!

It appears that we will be getting another 6″ Rey in The Black Series. The Rey (Jedi Training) from the SDCC Exclusive set with Luke and then a Resistance Base Rey. Special thanks to Hasbro Design Director Steve Evans for sharing the image below on his Intsagram. If you were wondering how her face looks so similar to Daisy Ridley, Steve commented and said “Our new Rey. New face application technique will be implemented on our 6″ Black Series figs from spring 2018 onwards” So hopefully this means we will be getting some amazing looking new faces coming our way.
