Hasbro Announces Ahsoka E-Wing with KE4-N4

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, February 7, 2024

Hasbro hasn't actually made a completely new 3 3/4-inch vehicle for years (last year's N-1 Fighter was still a Naboo Fighter), but now we're getting the Star Wars The Vintage Collection New Republic E-Wing & KE4-N4. That's the little Kenner R2-D2 droid from Ahsoka in here, but sadly the pilot is sold separately.  At $99.99 (and seemingly made-to-order with a pre-order deadline of March 5, 2024) it certainly isn't cheap, but other recent vehicles for collectors are in this general ballpark.   I ordered one.  You can order one here.

If the vehicle looks familiar, it should. One of Galoob's final Action Fleet vehicles was an E-Wing back in the 1990s, but other than that it's a pretty obscure vehicle that doesn't get a lot of love. (Even I confuse it with the 1990s version of the V-Wing at times.  It's not the same as the prequel V-Wing.) This E-Wing looks cool, and I assume the pack-in droid is going to be the selling point for most fans.

Hasbro's Kenner's Retro 6-Pack at Shop Disney and Hasbro Pulse

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, May 4, 2023

In an exciting bit of price disparity, the same toy is $20 cheaper at Hasbro Pulse. Click here to pre-order the Star Wars Retro Collection Star Wars: A New Hope Collectible Figures Multipack at Hasbro Pulse for $69.99. Or, you can click here to get it for $89.99 at Shop Disney. Why the difference? I have no idea - Hasbro's price is more in line with the current $11.99-ish retail price per figure elsewhere.

While Shop Disney has no date, Hasbro Pulse says to expect it around June 5. Supposedly these have hit US warehouses, so it should be a fun time soon to see how the clicking mechanism in R2-D2's head translated to new production... or how it compares to the Stan Solo droid remakes.

HasLab Rancor: Over, Finished

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, December 6, 2021

The funding for the HasLab Star Wars™ The Black Series Rancor ended just under an hour ago, capping out at about 8,500 of a required 9,000 orders before numbers started reducing down to 832 (as of 9:49 PM Pacific) and the project was removed from the HasLab archive page. For now you can still see the pictures and copy for Malakili, and it is unknown what this means for future projects.

As it did not fund, we do not anticipate this project to see production, but it will be interesting if Hasbro tries to make a similarly sized - but simpler and cheaper - creature with less articulation at a lower cost. (I am not betting on it.)

HasLab Razor Crest: Fully Funded, All Stretch Goals, 1 Day Left to Order

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, November 8, 2020

3873 Hasbro's Star Wars The Vintage Collection Razor Crest smashed its goal in a day, and has sold 19,997 at press time.  The $349.99 vehicle is currently set to include three 3 3/4-inch scale action figures, four Carbonite blocks, removable panels, escape pods, blasters, and a toilet.

Hasbro Star Wars Black Series Amazon Exclusives on Hasbro Pulse?

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, May 2, 2020

In a stream yesterday, Hasbro revealed several new items including 3 Amazon exclusives which were supposed to be up for sale yesterday.  The pre-orders didn't seem to go live - but today, all three are up for sale on Hasbro Pulse.  (I just ordered them, myself.) 


These include a 40th Anniversary carded Han Solo in Carbonite Chamber (just the block, $14.99, deco may be different than the 2013 release), a 2-pack of 4-LOM and Zuckuss (Kenner-style deco, swapped names, 40th anniversary Kenner packaging), and a Carbonized Darth Vader (ugly blue, $24.99.)
