Hasbro Posts New Cantina HasLab Short Video

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, July 1, 2024

Hasbro Pulse put up a new video today showing some behind-the-scenes painting of its Cantina Playset on HasLab. And here it is!



The video does not include some key information, like the fact that this is a crowdfunded playset, you can see it on the Hasbro Pulse HasLab page, and as of now you have under one week to sign up for one. It's over 6,800, so - plus or minus the long weekend - I'm confident it should glide past the 8,000 unit funding mark. I have no idea if dealers and flippers will swoop in at the end to buy units to carve up for individual sale later, and am generally unsure fans are going to remember to back it before they leave for burgers and barbecues and whatever kind of "bang" they're going for this weekend.

As such, you may want to go ahead and back it right now before you forget. It's less than a week, it needs the support, and everybody is going to want those extra figures. Well, everybody who pledges will want the extra figures, everybody else has other things to worry about like getting potato salad together or whatever it is you're doing right now.

Hasbro Reveals SDCC 2024 Exclusives (No 3 3/4-Inch)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, June 27, 2024

Last year, our San Diego Comic-Con exclusive was Krrsantan with a variant head and some extra gear at a big mark-up. While it wasn't sold on the show floor, you could buy it in an off-site exhibition with decades of Hasbro and Kenner toys on display. (Before you say "no it couldn't," yes you could, I bought mine there.) This year, your exclusive is a 6-inch Darth Maul with a Sith Speeder! It's not uncool, but there was another Maul in another figure 3-pack pretty recently. IGN posted a story showing it as well as Death's Head (for Marvel Legends and Transformers fanatics), Cobra Commander (in a new-to-toy format), and a 2-pack of Megatron and Orion Pax for Transformers.

One nice thing about this set is that it comes in a very 1999/2000-style red and black box.  I don't know if there's a lot of nostalgia for it, but I quite liked it and had fond memories of the whole launch of the movie and its toys.

In case you forgot, GameStop got the 3-pack with Maul, Obi-Wan, and Qui-Gon earlier this year.  If you don't want the probe or the speeder, you might want to pick that up.

For those keeping track at home, these are new versions of existing characters, in some cases with new accessories - no character is debuting in this format for the convention, although hard core fans may appreciate some of the specificity and variations to be had. I was certainly surprised to see this specific Cobra Commander and this specific Death's Head finally, and I bet a lot of fans will really enjoy them.

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, June 27, 2024

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: RG-G1 (The Vintage Collection). You can still get it in a set from Amazon, and it's pretty great - they even gave him a new mold for the dome in addition to very distinctive deco. I like it. Read on!

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Nalan Cheel (Fanfar, The Vintage Collection). It's the same as Figrin D'an, but has a unique instrument - and you'll want the band boxed set for the HasLab Cantina. Read on!

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, June 13, 2024

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Luke Skywalker (Epic Hero Series). You can probably find him in a store now, and he's pretty good - he has a backpack for Grogu, and a lightsaber, and looks just like a decent toy. Get it if you have a few bucks. Read on!

Q&A: Star Wars HasLab Revealed - Tonnika Twins (wrapped in a Cantina)

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, June 7, 2024

I kid with the headline, but we've been asking Hasbro for Brea and Senni Tonnika since Galoob made one in Action Fleet in 1997. Or I have, at any rate. They're two of the includes (along with Wuher) in Hasbro's STAR WARS The Vintage Collection Mos Eisley Cantina. The base option is $399.99, the deluxe option adds another chunk of booths for another $100 at $499.99, and there are three stretch goals - a Greedo (read below for more on him), Nabrun Leids, and a real shocker, the missing wolfman Arleil Schous.

Is it all worth it? Will this be in a question and answer format? When should you backfill your missing alien stash? Buckle up, this one gets long.   Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,140: Cad Bane (The Retro Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, June 6, 2024

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Cad Bane (The Retro Collection). Based on his appearance in The Book of Boba Fett, this Kenner-style figure isn't quite as Kenner-y as some others - he more or less fits in, but lacks the detail and distinctive body language of the old guys. But it's a $12 Cad Bane, and he can stand and sit, and has a swell hat. Also he's one of the few figures where a vinyl cape might have been good to serve as a coat - but in this case, the coat is molded to the figure so it doesn't get in the way of him sitting in your old vehicles.

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,139: Jango Fett (Deluxe, The Vintage Collection)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, June 4, 2024

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Jango Fett (Deluxe, The Vintage Collection). It may not be configured to match either of his specific looks in the movie, but all of the parts look good. The helmet is lacking his post-Kamino dent, but you do get the second jet pack - and a lot of nice articulation and painted detail. It is very nice, but given you likely have cheaper figures that are truer to the scene, you'll have to weigh "better proportions and slightly better articulation" against "already have something like it in your closet."

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,138: The Mandalorian (Glavis Ringworld, The Black Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, May 30, 2024

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: The Mandalorian (Glavis Ringworld, The Black Series). This one's a bit different - he has a cloth cape and a knife he can keep in his boot, making it one of the better versions of the character you can buy. It's in The Book of Boba Fett packaging. Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 3,137: Stormtrooper (Epic Hero Series)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, May 28, 2024

Via the Star Wars Galactic Hunter Figure of the Day Blog: Stormtrooper (Epic Hero Series). It looks sort of like a 1990s POTF2 figure, but with slightly less bulky proportions. The head is small, the blaster is huge, and it's actually quite charming. I'd like more of them. Read on!
