NYCC: The HASBRO Star Wars Report - Partying Like It's 1999

By Mike — Sunday, October 16, 2011

(NEW YORK, NY) Are collectors ready to party like it's 1999? The Phantom Menace arrived with much hoopla and high, even unrealistic, expectations when it was released over 12 years ago and for many ushered in the era of CGI and Jar Jar hate. Will time and 3D be more forgiving towards Episode I?

By Mike — Thursday, October 13, 2011

New York Comic-Con is  underway and we've posted some highlight photos from the Hasbro booth.

Comic-Con: Hasbro Panel Blaster Points

By Mike — Friday, July 22, 2011

Revenge is a dish best served cold, and in Hasbro's case, sometimes repackaged. The Hasbro's Comic-Con panels normally provides good copy and there were a few nice revelations, and this session provided a mixed bag. For whatever it's worth, the Star Wars line is entering a 16th year of modern iteration and most screen characters have been done again and again...and again.

Image Bank: VC50 Han Solo (Bespin Outfit)

By Mike — Monday, July 18, 2011

Hasbro finally delivers a Han Solo in Bespin outfit that we can truly term as the definitive version so far. The dead on facial likeness, super- articulation, and even the "Han-ness", that cocky swagger, is evident in this figure. Sure Hasbro. for their own reasons. didn't include the leg strap, but it doesn't diminish an otherwise excellent execution.
