Oh boy, new MicroMachines! Some of these are shipping now - 3 new 3-packs are part of wave 2 and I've already got them here on my desk. (2 X-Wings and a TIE, Falcon/Executor/TIE Bomber, ROTS Jedi Starfighter/ARC-170/Droid Tri-Fighter).
Other new entries include new blind bags and yes, new 5-packs. Do you want to see these? I certainly hope so, because I'm posting them for you regardless - I'm collecting these and I assume you are too. Do it.
What's this? Why, it's new Titanium Series vehicles! The A-Wing, Imperial Shuttle, Jakku Landspeeder, Anakin's Jedi Starfighter, Republic Gunship, Sith Infiltrator, and Star Destroyer are all here. (Some are returning champions.) They're all still quite cheap, thankfully, so you can get 'em in stores soon. Images after the jump.
We got 5 hi-res pictures from Hasbro! The First Order TIE Pilot, Snowtrooper, General Hux, Resistance Trooper, and Atsy (and not Han Solo) are all here, after the jump, for you.
Hasbro's busy! While we're not in New York, others are and we can link to their sites. Of note, ToyArk has shots of many new 6-inch figures and the Transformers sites are loading up on new Titans. (Titans are now, of course, very small toys - the Headmasters. Galvatron, Skullcruncher, etc. Great time to be alive, but I digress.)
For Star Wars, a 6-inch Han Solo is coming - as is Ello Atsy, a TIE Fighter Pilot, Hux, and others. Click here to see a gallery at ToyArk.
New York! I'm not there - but these figures are. Hasbro revealed 6 new 6-inch The Black Series action figures for all of us remaining loyal Star Wars fans. They are: Emperor Palpatine, Luke Skywalker, in Stormtrooper Disguise, Clone Commander Cody, IG-88, Princess Leia in Boushh Disguise, and the Clone Trooper Captain.
Ah, armchair reporting! It's great. Hasbro sent along a batch of photos of new Star Wars goodness from their "Twas The Night Before Party." In here, you'll find 3 3/4-inch Star Wars The Black Series C-3PO, Princess Leia in Boushh Disguise, Mosep Binneed, Commander Thorn, Han Solo in Carbonite, and a pair of Jawas! What's not to love?
In anticipation of Lucasfilm’s STAR WARS REBELS panel at New York Comic Con (Saturday, October 12, 2013; 2:45 PM 3:45 PM; Location: Empire Stage 1-E), Hasbro unveils the packaging treatment for its STAR WARS REBELS 3.75-inch action figure line supporting the upcoming animated series.
Hasbro revealed a few nice nuggets of plastic at this year's NYCC Preview Party. Aside from new iterations of Dagobah Luke and Yoda, we can expect Toryn Farr and a Snowtrooper Commander in the spring. Check out the official images and official announcement after the jump!
Hasbro's NYCC Preview Party is underway, and our friends at Jedi Temple Archives and Star Wars Action News have the scoop and photos. New reveals include the design of the Star Wars Rebels cardback, based on the forthcoming animated series, and new Black Series action figures featuring Wedge Antilles (Snowspeeder), a newly revisited Dagobah Luke and Yoda, a new Snowtrooper, and last but certainly not least, Toryn Farr.
Hallmark announces the "Wrath of Rancor" Keepsake ornament as their 2013 San Diego Comic-Con International (July 18-21) and New York Comic Con (October 10-13) exclusive. The piece commemorates the 30th anniversary of Return of the Jedi featuring Luke Skywalker's epic battle with the Rancor monster underneath Jabba's palace.
The big show is over and we've uploaded over an additional 100 photos for your viewing pleasure of the NYCC exhibit floor. I love browsing the dealer booths in hopes of finding a good deal on a few older or vintage pieces that I need in my collection, and while I don't have $60,000 in spare change to bid on a copy of Avengers #1, the looking and picking are always fun from t-shirts to posters, and of course, plastic.
Autumn in New York is a beautiful thing. For fans of pop culture, the season brings their own east coast Comic Con. It's Preview Day, and because it's in Mid-Town Manhattan on a Wednesday, the foot traffic was not the critical mass that San Diego normally is. For this website, not having to cover Hasbro on a show of this magnitude is a little weird, but Hasbro's absence are DC and Mattel's gain, particularly if you're a Batman fan and collector where new figures from DC Direct and Arkham City were prominent. There were some Star Wars reveals from other licensors like Kotobukiya and Diamond Select, and they're not bad at all. But Gentle Giant and Sideshow were also absent and there was clearly less Star Wars than the show last year.
The "Smash On The Beach" and "Super Serum Cider "were flowing readily in the Avengers themed bar and many cheeses, noodles, and egg rolls served to various members of the collector press during a Hasbro New York Comic Con Preview Party in Mid-town Manhattan on Wednesday night.
New York Comic-Con's Instagram feed reveals the next LEGO convention exclusive to be a Luke Skywalker and Landspeeder in Collector's Tin for next week's NYCC. The third in a series for this year's conventions, with Darth Maul for SDCC and Boba Fett for Celebration VI, the tin is a limited edition of only 1000 pieces with quantities limited for each day on a first come first serve basis.
