Tag Archives: Triple Force Friday

Now that we’re a significant amount of weeks out from Triple Force Friday, we’re curious to know what you’re finding at retail now. For me, I am only finding exclusives (and with relative ease). But as far as general marketplace items, like the first couple of waves of The Vintage Collection and The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ lines, I am finding almost nothing. There has been sell-through, but I don’t think any of my local stores have restocked. Let us know what you’re finding in your neck of the woods!

There is an interesting article on Cinemablend that reveals just how much Hasbro is still holding back from fans when it comes to Rise of Skywalker toys that are being released on Triple Force Friday. Cinemablend spoke with Mike Ballog, Hasbro’s Senior Director of Global Marketing, and he said this:

We have clear conversations about what can come out when, and what needs to stay under wraps. We work around things with that in mind. At least from a Hasbro stand point, [the product on display is] maybe 30-35% of our full line.

In case you wonder, the conversations are with Disney of course, who apparently keep Hasbro from releasing toys when it would make the most sense. For example, could the almost complete lack of Knights of Ren action figures mean that these come with accessories that would spoil the plot? Why is there no Dark Side Rey figure? Lucasfilm leaked her a while ago. Let’s hope Hasbro still has some nice things in store for collectors, because not all that many figures will be released next Friday.

Brand New Rise Of Skywalker SH Figuarts Figures Revealed!

S.H.Figuarts will also have a small selection of brand new Rise of Skywalker figures this year. However, SHF offers substantially less than for The Last Jedi this year. It seems this time collectors will merely get three figures and all three of them will directly compete with the Black Series. There will be an all new Kylo Ren, Rey and Sith Trooper figure! Click through for the details!

Your General Thoughts About Triple Force Friday

After yesterday’s barrage of reveals and promo photos of upcoming Star Wars toys, now is maybe the time to gather your thoughts. What is your opinion now? How do you feel about what’s coming next week? Are you happy? Are you disappointed? Would you have hoped for more? How much will you buy? Or will you play the waiting game and hope for discounts?

Will you try your luck in stores next Friday or will you simply wait for the usual etailers to make things available online? However, buying online means you will miss out on any white “First Edition” Black Series boxes. The Entertainment Earth YouTube channel confirmed in their latest video that the “First Edition” will be found at brick & mortar only, you will get the regular boxes when ordering online. So Hasbro is trying to give brick & mortar something special here.

And ultimately, do you believe the Triple Force Friday line-up is strong enough for toy sales to recover? Leave your thoughts in the comments!

And An All New Black Series Elite Snowtrooper Has Been Revealed

No  word about availability (Triple Force Friday? Or a bit later?) yet, but the Black Series Elite Snowtrooper was also revealed earlier tonight. It begs the question why a Snowtrooper, wearing special cold weather outfit, needs a cape. Maybe because capes are just cool. Who knows… other than the cape, this seems to be the First Order Snowtrooper we got a few years ago! So the figure is mostly a repack.

Triple Force Friday Livestream Reveals

The Triple Force Friday toy livestream revealed an all new Black Series C-3PO with bowcaster, bandolier and a tiny, tiny character called Babu Frik, who is a droid builder.

Also shown was the Black Series Cara Dune figure and the Black Series Jannah figure (looking very nice).

Not a single TVC figure was shown or advertised. TVC was not even mentioned in passing. But a few Lego Sets (Millennium Falcon, Pasaana Speeder Chase), Galaxy of Adventure figures, Funko Pops and the new interactive D-O, which does look like a fun toy, were shown.

If you didn’t watch the livestream you didn’t miss all that much! It was 45 short minutes, with most segments pre-recorded. But it was cute seeing how much Daisy loved her Black Series figure!

Update: screencaps and a few general thoughts added to the article! Please click through for the new Black Series figures that were revealed!
