Stop Being A Man-Baby! It's For Kids!

Walmart polled kids this year to get an idea of what some of their favorite toys and brands are and what Wlamart should have IN STOCK for America’s Best Toy Shop. As you know, Walmart has grand plans to take over the world as the #1 toy shop. See if you can find what intellectual property and Hasbro brand DID NOT make the list. It’s no wonder so many locations have no Star Wars section left. Click the image below for the winners of the poll (a pdf document), but you can also read more HERE.

Hasbro To Phase Out Plastic From New Toy And Game Packaging

Hasbro has announced today that, beginning in 2020, it plans to start phasing out plastic from new product packaging, including plastic elements like polybags, elastic bands, shrink wrap, window sheets, and blister packs. The company’s ambition is to eliminate virtually all plastic in packaging for new products by the end of 2022. There is not ONE mention of the Star Wars line in the article. Perhaps they know this would never be an option for the collectors of this line. See the full story at Business Wire.

Review: Artoo-Detoo (R2-D2) - TVC - VC149

Here is another figure we should have fallen in love with but didn’t. Why is Artoo-Detoo (R2-D2) this filthy on a Star Wars card? Can anyone answer this? Please don’t deactivate Hasbro! The Vintage Collection has overworked their circuits. Someone needs to take Hasbro down to maintenance! See why you may be disappointed with this figure too in our Research Droids Reviews today!

The Vintage Collection Wave 22: Lower Your Expectations

We’re almost done with the reviews, but you can check everything else out right now including a ton of comparison images, diorama shots and the new figures interacting with other figures and vehicles. I have to admit that The Vintage Collection wave 22 isn’t doing it for me. My favorite figure in the wave is the Imperial Assault Tank Commander, and that should NOT be the case. I am thrilled about finally getting a carded “12-Back” Artoo-Detoo (R2-D2) figure, but this character and card back were worthy of a completely all-new sculpt. Oh well. Luke Skywalker (Crait) is a decent release, but he is limited in movement thanks to constricting robes. His articulation system is almost voided out by it. And the Death Star Gunner should have been the crowning joy of the wave, but it has disappointed me hugely. Anyhow, check out the new images of the latest figures. Hopefully, the next wave will be a little bit better.
