The Hasbro exclusive Revenge of the Jedi Death Star Figure set sold out, along with most of the popular Hasbro exclusives, late Saturday. Hasbro even sold the sample that they had displayed in their booth, giving credence to the low production quantities of this exclusive.
We update our Image Bank with additional photos of the ROTJ Deleted Scene and TPM waves as well as the ToysRUs exclusive The Force Unleashed II and Droid Attack on the Coronet
Here is today's Hasbro Comic-Con presentation uploaded in our Image Bank. You can also view it in a Quicktime movie below. Enjoy!
Hasbro lead sculptor David Vennemeyer has a few things cooking in his kitchen and shared a few delicacies this afternoon in his portable workshop at the Hasbro booth, including an unpainted shot of what is shaping up to be a nicely articulated Mawhonic and the upcoming TRU exclusive Spider Assassin Droid and her "little babies. Last but certainly not least, that new and upcoming super articulated Battle Droid can be folded up to sit! Take a look!
We mentioned Hasbro's tendency to stagger their reveals during these events. The afternoon after their Comic-Con panel, Hasbro displays their forthcoming The Phantom Menace and ROTJ Deleted Scenes waves slated for release in the beginning of 2012! And these look spectacular! The TPM wave includes Padawan Anakin, Quinlan Vos, Ben Quadrinaros, Ratts Tyerell, Daultay Dofine, and a Naboo Royal Guard, while the ROTJ wave has Deleted Scene Luke, Leia, Lando, General Cracken, and a Mon Calamari Pilot!
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.
We upload photos from the LEGO booth at Comic-Con to our Image Bank. The nice folks at LEGO were kind enough to show us an advance screening yesterday of The Padawan Menace television special at a local theater. All we can say for the time being is this will BE WELL WORTH while seeing this evening at 7 PM on The Cartoon Network.
This teaser trailer for the Complete Star Wars Saga on Blu-ray was shown to fans at this evening's Star Wars Fan Movie Awards in Comic-Con. Enjoy!
We have uploaded photos from the Gentle Giant booth at Comic-Con. The booth is traditionally the center of attention in the Exhibit Hall and this year is no different, with free Bust Ups being thrown randomly out to the crowd and Slave Leias providing a lot of visual appeal and photo opps. This year, Her Universe hosted a fashion show featuring various scantily clad models sporting the latest in Star Wars t-shirt fashion and little else.
The Clone Wars television series Supervising Director Dave Filoni will be at the Hasbro Comic-Con booth (#3213) this Saturday from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm to sign a special edition of the Star Wars: The Clone Wars, which is designed specifically for the autograph session and free for fans. Hasbro will be distributing a limited number of tickets on a first come first serve basis for fans to participate. The tickets will be distributed Saturday beginning at 9:30 in the Hasbro booth while supplies last.
While last year's focus was on The Empire Strikes Back's 30th Anniversary, this year is all about "Getting Revenge". Marvel properties may be the movie darlings of 2011, but Hasbro remains dedicated to their Vintage mission,though most of what they showed at Comic-Con was packaging alone, as they largely touted their show exclusive Revenge of the Jedi Death Star set.
LEGO unveiled their 2011 Comic-Con exclusive this year with little fanfare and at a first come first serve basis. Foregoing the raffle system of previous years, LEGO is offering a specially packaged edition of their upcoming 2011 Advent Calendar. The set features 6 minifigures, including an exclusive Santa Yoda.
Not too exciting but it's definitely new and forthcoming. The images are starting to emerge from the biggest geekfest of the year as SuperHeroHype.com posts a shot directly from Hasbro's booth of the upcoming ToysRUs exclusive Death Star Trench Run Ultimate Battle Pack featuring Luke Skywalker's X-wing Fighter and Darth Vader's TIE Fighter with their associated action figures.
