Toys R Us Jabba the Hutt - Star Wars Gangster Gets New Hasbro Mold

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, June 30, 2015

My pal who I will call Juan Nonymous sent along sample shots of the Jabba's Rancor Pit gift set Jabba the Hutt in comparison with the 2010 model from Walmart.  This new-for-2015 version is a 100% new mold with new deco, meaning it is... say it with me...

"Just different enough to make you mad."   Well, not Jabba, Jabba's new and interesting.  The rest of the set is as interesting as your collection isn't - it's great stuff if you don't got it yet.  This set will be sold at the Entertainment Earth Booth at Comic-Con next week, on Toys R Us.com, and probably retail stores too.  Want to see more images?  Check after the jump.

Hasbro Announces New Star Wars Fan's Choice Poll - 6-Inch Edition

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, June 22, 2015

...despite the graphic, we're actually very excited to report that one of our favorite fan events is making a long-awaited return!  Rejoice!

Given that we're not even two years into the 6-inch line, it's pretty amazing that Hasbro has made this announcement: "Hasbro is pleased to once again invite you and your readers to help determine its next STAR WARS Fans’ Choice figure! And for the first time ever, the STAR WARS Fans' Choice poll will choose a 6-inch scale STAR WARS: THE BLACK SERIES figure!"

Wow!  Well, the good news is we get to have a say in who's coming. The bad news is that since it's a little early, it probably won't get weird - after all, we haven't got the main cast of the original Star Wars yet, nor Lando, nor Jango, nor Made Windu or any of Jabba's stooges.   As such a popular movie character will no doubt get the nod before an Expanded Universe favorite like Fordo or Mara Jade.

So how do you, the reader, participate?  (UPDATE: You can't! Comments are now closed and votes are being tallied.)

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,161: Darth Vader (Dagobah Test - The Black Series 2015)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, May 29, 2015

You probably don't need Darth Vader (Dagobah Test) if you've been collecting for the last 15 years, but it's not terrible.  With a great head sculpt and a neck that's a tad too long, it repurposes a 2005 body - a good one - for your collecting pleasure.   Read on!

TF15: Hasbro Image Bank

By Mike — Saturday, February 14, 2015

We have uploaded photos from Hasbro's Toy Fair showroom. The Black Series and Star Wars Rebels presentation was underwhelming to say the least, but understandable given the focus on Episode 7, which we should begin seeing by SDCC.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,115: Yoda (The Black Series 6-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, December 29, 2014

Hey hey, it's Yoda!  Figure of the Day is briefly back, and we're going to look at the newer 6-inch figures in blue boxes.  You're welcome!

Yoda isn't 6-inches, but he does have a snake, a cane, and a lightsaber plus a cloth robe that is nicely tattered.  This may be Hasbro's best take on the snake that came with the original Kenner figure, and as Yoda figures go it's quite nice.  As Black Series figures go, though, it's pretty insubstantial and the reason for giving him double-jointed elbows is beyond me.

Anyway, read on!
