Click through for all of the announcements for The Black Series. Special thanks to The Fwoosh and Justin from Jedi News for the live updates.
LEGO has announced quite a bit in their Star Wars line. There is some excellent Original Trilogy stuff coming, but they’re also celebrating 20 years of The Phantom Menace. See the full Press Gallery on our Facebook page!
Hasbro held a Toy Fair preview event for investors and the powerpoint presentation for the event includes a very interesting slide about Hasbro Pulse. Please check out the screenshot below:
As you can see there’s a screenshot of a “1 year membership” to collect them all. And it’s $19.99. That could prove to be a hassle free way of getting all the figures. Now, the important question is if “collect them all” also includes the retailer exclusives or not. If that were so the membership might be quite attractive, since nobody would have to deal with Walmart etc. anymore. It is not known if something similar will be available for TVC. We’ll keep you posted!
Hasbro will have their Toy Fair event on Saturday. There are rumors (Skiff-sized rumors) of what we might see, but maybe there are also a few surprises in store. So… what are your hopes for tomorrow? What would you like to see? And what is it you expect to see? What we will most certainly not see is any product for Episode IX, unless Disney has changed their tune and eased up on their secrecy, which is very unlikely.
I have been debating whether or not to share my interpretation of one part of my encounter with the Hasbro reps from Toy Fair. (more….)
The news from Toy Fair was flying down the page pretty quickly with all of the headlines and images coming out this weekend. Make sure to stop by our Toy Fair 2018 Portal Page where you can find all of our news and galleries gathered up in one place. A big thanks to all of our readers who hung out with us all weekend during the fun!
Here is our Hasbro Q&A session! We had the joy of rapid-firing questions to Hasbro along with our friends at Jedi News and Bantha Skull. You’ll hear various people ask questions. One of the first questions I asked should allay your fears about the future of The Vintage Collection, so be sure to give it a listen. Click through for more!

We will aggregate everything on our portal page for a ‘one stop shop’ of all of our coverage.
A cursory look at eBay auctions for the original run of The Vintage Collection figures AS WELL AS The Black Series 3.75″ figures show that there is incredible demand for past figures. In this post, let Hasbro know what figures you want to see re-released in the return of The Vintage Collection this Spring. See the madness HERE for TVC and HERE for TBS.
