Another SDCC Preview Night has come and gone and the attendance felt like a Saturday as crowd traffic was shoulder to shoulder and the Hasbro-nites (as well as resellers) flooded HasbroToyShop's booth with fervor and frustration. This being my 15th straight Comic-Con, long lines waiting for hyped exclusives are no longer as appealing. The time was better spent shooting photos of Hasbro's booth, and while the majority of it was already previewed at Toy Fair, there were a couple of reveals including a closer look at the SDCC exclusive Jabba, the Walgreen Prototype Fett, Target's pair of Star Wars Rebels vehicles, and a few from ToysRUs and Walmart.

Because I am preposterously tired, have my Hasbro Toy Fair Panel Star Wars Notes. This is what I punched up as the panel played on, and you probably won't get a heck of a lot more insight over what you've already seen so far. Heck, maybe it'll clarify something. Just go ahead and read on!

In what I can only assume is to make early adopters who paid $59.99 not a month and change ago feel as foolish as possible, Amazon cut the price on the Star Wars Legacy Collection Droid Factory Action Figure 6-Pack to a mind-blowing-but-why-stop-now $23.99. Black Series figures ($11.99 Greedo) and other items also received deep cuts, and since we're going to go ahead and say this qualifies as news, you'll see more of them after the jump.
Ad: While you probably don't need more Black Series 6-Inch Sandtrooper Action FIgures, Amazon has them for
$11.24 $10.12 - the best price I've seen yet. The armor is largely removable and I assume the dirt comes off, so customizers/troop builders/clearance finders - this is the time to order some Sandtroopers!
Reader PJS sent in an image that you're sure to delight in - it turns out that the 6-inch Black Series Sandtrooper head fits nicely on the existing Sandtrooper 3 3/4-inch body! You can make your very own shrunken-head or super-deformed Sandtroopers in the amount of time it takes you to read a sentence. See the picture after the jump, and thank you PJS for sharing!
