The new ToysRUs exclusive Big Millennium Falcon in vintage packaging was brought out for display in the Hasbro booth and it looks huge as it should and amazingly fantastic.
There was much anticipation for Hasbro's panel on Friday to find out what was in store for 2013 and they offered some surprises. The Vintage Collection will be put on a hiatus and The Legacy Collection Droid Factory will be re-introduced beginning next year with over 30 figures planned. A few exclusives were also revealed with one particular online retailer figure exclusive that was undoubtedly one of the surprise announcements of the day. The other surprise was news that there will be no Hasbro exclusive for Celebration VI next month.
You can now pre-order the just announced exclusive Jocasta Nu from our sponsors at BriansToys.com! The Jedi librarian is priced for $24.99 and comes with a lightsaber, lightsaber hilt, battle bag with string closure, and Master Dooku "Lost 20" Bust along with a mantle.
We'll be live tweeting from the Hasbro panel today at 11 am PT. Be sure to follow us @galactichunter for all the breaking info!
New carded and loose images of Vintage Wave 7 have been posted at Sandtroopers.com featuring the new Royal Guard with an alternate Crimson Empire head and armor.
Hasbro didn't reveal much during Preview Night that we already haven't covered at Toy Fair, but there are a couple of new Movie Heroes figures, one being a refangled VOTC Boba Fett. There are lots and lots of Fighter Pods and their HasbroToyShop exclusives were so HUGE this year that people brought handcarts to haul that SHIELD Helicarrier, which along with the Carbonite Chamber set, probably won't last through Sunday if past big sized exclusives like the Death Star and Galactus are any indication.
The German site StarWars-Figuren.com has posted some boxed photos of the upcoming ToysRUs exclusive R.O.T.J. AT-AT. The specially Vintage Collection packaged re-issue of the 2010 ESB Hoth AT-AT looks to also include an Endor Speeder Bike for this version.
If you're one of the three adult collectors buying into Hasbro's surprisingly fun Fighter Pods line, you might be interested to know there are variations out there to find! I discovered a Cad Bane today.
Our cartel connections payed off and we were able to take some early photos from the floor of the Hasbro, Sideshow, and Diamond Select booths.
The new Vintage Droid Set is pretty snazzy. If you haven't seen them in person yet, I hope you read the review a few days ago so you can see it yet again in this nifty video review, after the jump.
Meet R-3PO, the second attempt! The first one had a wonderful sculpt with amazing deco, and this one... has knees. Each version is different enough to warrant purchase, but what's so good about this one? Read on!
