SDCC14: Hasbro Preview Night Image Bank

By Mike — Wednesday, July 23, 2014

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.

Walmart Hasbro Jumbo Star Wars Millennium Falcon Confirmed

The rumors were true!  Hasbro is indeed releasing a Millennium Falcon in a few months exclusively at Walmart, sans action figure compatibility.  It's big, it's cheap, and it's pictured after the break - with pricing and other useful information.

StarWars.com Reveals Walgreens Exclusive Black Series Boba Fett

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, July 1, 2014

The article: Prototype Boba Fett Black Series Figure – Exclusive Reveal!

Supposedly (depending on the reports) between August and some time this fall, we're going to have access to a $19.99 white "prototype" 6-inch Boba Fett.  A mail-in version of this costume was made for the 3 3/4-inch scale a couple of years ago, so now we'll have access to a bigger version of this character.   Somehow, pre-orders will start at Comic-Con in a few weeks.

One Big Ship Deserves Another: Giant Millennium Falcon Coming

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, June 18, 2014

A giant X-wing is en route from Hasbro, and YodasNews.com shows it won't be alone.  A Millennium Falcon of generous proportions - seemingly the 2008 Big Millennium Falcon minus figure compatibility and electronics - is on the way.  The packaging boasts it's over 2 feet long, and Yoda's News says it may be a Walmart exclusive.  Click here to see it.

Deal: Amazon has Vintage Star Wars Droid 3-Pack for $5.98

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, December 25, 2013

Because there's always a chance to drop a price, Amazon marked down the formerly Target exclusive Star Wars Action Figure Special Droid Set to under six bucks with free Prime shipping.  That ain't bad - there are plenty of other items marked down too including $3 Black Series figures and other stuff, so while you wait for the ham or turkey or Denny's to be ready you might want to poke around to see what other deals you can find.

I just found Looper (Blu-Ray, good movie) and the Total Recall remake (haven't seen it) are $4.99 each, also with free Prime shipping.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,057: Battle Droid (2013 Legacy Collection Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, November 14, 2013

Did we need another Battle Droid, even if it's based on the exceptional Vintage design from 2012?  Probably not - the figure, despite being cool, has proven unpopular in its various toy forms.  Amazon's exclusive version includes a TC-70 part, which makes it much more essential for your toy box.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,056: FA-4 (2013 Legacy Collection Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, November 13, 2013

Let's look at FA-4, the sole newly-tooled figure in Amazon's Legacy/Droid Factory boxed set.  I'm pleased to report that it's pretty great - expensive, sure, but such is life these days for the Star Wars collector.  Want to know more?  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,055: Sandtrooper (2013 Legacy Collection Droid Factory)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, November 12, 2013

If this Amazon-exclusive Droid Factory Sandtrooper looks vaguely familiar, it should - Hasbro dusted off the really cool 2012 release, changed the pauldron, altered the mud, and gave him a droid part.  And presto! New figure.  At retail odds are you'd be swarming to get this, but as part of an online exclusive set with no real cohesion, it's probably going to be collector-only.  Ah well! You're missing out.  Read on!
