Review: Han Solo - TBS [P3] - Titanium Series (05)

It’s the last one from the first wave! Do you recall how Hasbro treated 3.75″ super-articulated collectors when it came to celebrating the 40th Anniversary of A New Hope? The Titanium Series Han Solo is another one of the ways to remember how we got to celebrate the four-decade landmark. (more….)

Review: Obi-Wan Kenobi - TBS [P3] - Titanium Series (02)

Remember how Hasbro treated 3.75″ super-articulated collectors when it came to celebrating the 40th Anniversary of A New Hope? The Titanium Series Obi-Wan Kenobi is one of the ways to remember that nightmare. It was a disappointment on MULTIPLE levels. (more….)

Entertainment Earth, a huge distributor of Hasbro Star Wars and a carrier of Hasbro Star Wars exclusives, posted an informal poll on their Facebook page. (The Vintage Collection or The Black Series?) The results, despite a small sampling so far, overwhelmingly lean one way, and probably not the way you think. Check it out. Hasbro should check it out too.

It seems Hasbro is finally retiring the much used original Imperial Stormtrooper sculpt we first saw all the way back in 2013. A tweaked and refined Imperial Stormtrooper (based on the appearance in The Mandalorian and Rogue One) was also revealed today. You can immediately tell that the new Stormtrooper looks even better than the old version. Articulation has also been tweaked and improved, the figure has new elbows and new shoulder pads make sure you can move the arms around much better now. The helmet is certainly another huge improvement! This is the new TBS troop builder you want to have for your 6 inch scale Stormtrooper squad! You can pre-order him later this month on May 28th!

And here is one more reveal from today. Luke Skywalker in his Dagobah training outfit with Yoda! Luke looks appropriately grimy. He also comes with a backpack. But Yoda is still the same old Yoda from before, i.e. he’s much too tall and it may look a bit funny when Luke carries him around on his back. This post will be updated once details about availability are known! Thanks to Oliver H. for sending the picture!

Update: after more scrutiny it appears Yoda was scaled down somewhat from the previous version and is a little shorter now!

Hasbro Pulse advertised a Star Wars Fan Event Day for tomorrow, March 31st a couple of days ago. New products will be revealed and that is confirmed. But do you think anything “new” besides what most of us pre-ordered on Amazon that they accidentally put up for pre-order on February 24th will be shown? Does anyone expect new 6″ figures to be revealed as well? So far, we know these five The Vintage Collection figures are coming. We have the orders to prove it.
