Baby Yoda on Vintage Cardback - Star Wars Razor Crest Stretch Goal

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, September 29, 2020

3862 Hasbro's PR team wrote in to say:

"In recent Hasbro Star Wars HasLab news, the brand has reached their stretch goal of 8,000 backers earlier today and subsequently revealed the second tier unlock for the HasLab Star Wars: The Vintage Collection Razor Crest – the Star Wars: The Vintage Collection The Child Figure with Pram!"

Also:

"Featuring a card back, head and arm sculpt, gear shaft knob, and Pram deco treatment you can only receive with the HasLab Razor Crest"

This probably means a mass retail release is coming, but even if it is, this is probably the easiest way to get yours.  (Even if it has a $350 ship with toilet with it.)

Revealed: Star Wars HasLab Toilet with Razor Crest Vehicle

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, September 25, 2020

3861 Already over 50% 67% 115% funded, the Star Wars The Vintage Collection Razor Crest has what appears to be a changing table, a urinal, and what could be a ball gag. And that's just in one picture.  It has removable panels, removable engines, a 3 3/4-inch Beskar Mando with cloth cape, and unrevealed stretch goals.  This is probably why it's $350.   It also measures about 30-inches by 20-inches by 10-inches, so start looking for a shelf now.   Order here and wait until Fall of 2021 to get yours.

Target's Galaxy's Edge Millennium Falcon - In Stock

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, August 30, 2020

3859 If memory serves the big Millennium Falcon debuted for about $180 in 2008, about 12 years ago, as part of Star Wars: The Legacy Collection.  At the time, we thought it was the final "midnight madness," and possibly the beginning of the end - it wasn't. The ship had ups and downs, and got reissued in Toys R Us-exclusive a few years later was $250 thanks to increases in labor and materials costs.

Click here to check availability at Target.com.  As of right now it is expected to be online only due to cost and size.  Will it go on sale later?  Well, given its high price, we don't have a precedent for knowing the edition size.

43 Years Later, Star Wars' First Vehicle Gets a Playset with the Tantive IV

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, August 23, 2020

3852 This is an interesting one.  Hasbro's Tantive IV playset is a big hallway that can connect with itself so you can expand and make a whole ship - but sadly, there's no actual ship to be had.   There are opening doors and a reissue of the previously released The Vintage Collection Rebel Fleet Trooper with requisite changes, but that's a good thing.  You'll probably want 2-3 of these when they come out very early next year.

It'll be $49.99.  You can order yours at Entertainment Earth, and also Amazon... or the toy sellers that don't kick us back a few pennies or dollars when you click those links and place an order.  So we suggest those links.  It's called bias.

New Star Wars: The Vintage Collection Hondo Ohnaka

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, August 23, 2020

3849 Previously shown as coming with the $400 Millennium Falcon, this Star Wars: The Vintage Collection Hondo Ohnaka is also available by himself.  Aren't you lucky?  He includes a blaster, and so many stories to tell you. And so many of them are true!

New Star Wars: The Vintage Collection Rogue One Darth Vader

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, August 23, 2020

3847 Coming from Hasbro, a Darth Vader (Rogue One) The Vintage Collection figure!  It'll go great with that Tantive IV playset you'll be buying by the case to build out a battle scene.  It looks like Vader is mostly - or entirely - new parts, which is unusual these days!  Hasbro also took care to ensure you can see that they are using the correct gloves.  And we glove you, Hasbro.  This looks pretty dynamic and surprisingly spry for a 3 3/4-inch scale figure.

You can order Darth Vader or a full case of his unrevealed wave at Entertainment Earth, or order at Amazon. And those are both affiliate links, so we may get pennies or dollars if you click and buy something.

Target Getting Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge Millennium Falcon Vehicle

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, July 21, 2020

3800 Let's get this out of the way: it's $399.99.   The revised The Legacy Collection Millennium Falcon is now the Galaxy's Edge Millennium Falcon Smuggler's Run Vehicle.   It's just different enough to make you mad, with unique deco and two radar dishes.  The original 1977-style pizza dish is there, as is the rectangular sequel trilogy model.  Dirt deco is unique, and it has different figures.  Chewbacca, Hondo Ohnaka, and Porgs are included.  Is it worth more than a 2x price increase over 13 years?  Probably. 

Not SDCC: Star Wars The Clone Wars 501st Legion Pack from Hasbro

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, July 20, 2020

3784 With SDCC not happening, those great exclusives hd to go somewhere.  The Vintage Collection 3-packs have been a regular thing lately, with most of the figures eventually finding their way to single cards after being previewed in California.  We don't know which if any of the 501st Legion ARC Troopers 3 3/4-inch figure pack will be released individually, but right now this trio is due on Hasbro Pulse in September for $49.99.  

As far as we know this is the only 3 3/4-inch exclusive set for the summer convention season, but hey, I'm happy.  The Clone Wars debuted 12 years ago and we're getting figures for it.  Do you know what we got 12 years after the original Star Wars hit theaters?  Literally nothing.

Star Wars: The Vintage Collection Reveal - 2020 Chirrut Imwe

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, June 22, 2020

3771 The first of a new wave (and it's a good one) is this new Chirrit Imwe 3 3/4-inch action figure.  He's had two releases before with different accessories, but this is a new, super-articulated sculpt due out this year.  Pre-orders go live tomorrow morning!

Star Wars: The Vintage Collection Reveal - 2020 Carbon-Freezing Chamber Playset

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, June 22, 2020

3766 I've been dying to tell you about this Carbon-Freezing Chamber Playset, and you'll want to buy two of it. See that little freezing pit in the middle? That's removable - so you can buy 2 playsets and connect them together to build one really big environment for all the Ugnaughts, Stormtroopers, and Bespin Guards I hope you stockpiled 10 years ago. (And Lobot! We can't forget Lobot.)  Pre-orders go live Tuesday at 11:00 AM Eastern at your favorite toy stores, or rather, the toy stores that matter.

There are no plans for other sets to connect to this, but I know I'm crossing my fingers for a Gantry and Control Room some day.

In case it weren't obvious, this is a 3 3/4-inch scale toy.  If you want a 6-inch one, keep lobbying for that.

Star Wars: The Vintage Collection Reveal - 2021 Bespin Escape Leia

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, June 22, 2020

3765 Coming next year, this Bespin Escape Princess Leia seems to have a new head on the 2010 Hoth body - and a few tweaks.  This is a 3 3/4-inch The Vintage Collection figure. Take a look at the pictures and pre-order her tomorrow!

Hasbro Reveals More Star Wars The Black Series and The Vintage Collection Figures

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, March 31, 2020

Hasbro sent along even more pictures of new The Black Series and The Vintage Collection items - some of which you can pre-order right now at online shops like Entertainment Earth and others which are not paid advertisers. What's new, you ask? Ewoks. Ackbars. But no Jeffs. Who here woke up this week and thought we would see a Return of the Jedi batch of figures, let alone Admiral Ackbar? Not me!

Toy Fair 2020 - Hasbro Star Wars The Vintage Collection Figures and Vehicle

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, February 22, 2020

Star Wars: The Vintage Collection! It was not a big year for reveals. The biggest was a new edition of Boba Fett's Slave I, a long since sold-out formerly Amazon exclusive, now a shared exclusive. The 2020 edition includes a newly-tooled clear display stand and a new paint job that's better than ever, with cool engine lights on the back! It's also a lot more expensive, but not nearly as pricey as the secondary market rates for the original.

Toy Fair 2020 - The Hasbro Star Wars Live Tweetening

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, February 22, 2020

If you go to a good site, they'll no doubt put together great galleries with insightful, useful commentary - but since I was unable to squeeze in most of the areas where the good collector stuff was, we don't have pictures of everything.  I'm working on galleries now of some nifty new toys and we also have a text dump of my tweets from the Hasbro Media Day presentation.

Highlights: Walmart has retro Kenner for The Empire Strikes Back, pretty much a lot of it all leaked early, The Vintage Collection showed 2 figures (one reissue, one resculpt), and while there's a lot of interesting product - in every definition of the word - long-time collectors are unlikely to be feeling that this is Their year, even if it's an diverse batch of stuff.
