By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, February 18, 2017

3275 For this segment of our coverage, we've posted official write-ups and press photos already so I'll just give you some booth photos of the new First Order Stormtrooper Megablaster, Force FX Obi-Wan Kenobi Lightsaber, Poe Dameron helmet, and so on.  You've seen it, it's good, now see it again.

Poe Dameron's Helmet: Now at Affordable Prices, from Hasbro

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, February 15, 2017

3249 One of the surprise hits of The Black Series has been a series of higher-end fancy-boxed toy helmets from Hasbro.  The Stormtrooper and Kylo Ren editions were strong sellers, and they look nice on a shelf.  (My nose is too big to enjoy them.)   This year, the latest release is Poe Dameron's Black Squadron helmet.  Could this mean a white and blue variant is coming as someone's exclusive?  I'd bet money on it. I love these things.  But that's me - what does Hasbro have to say?

STAR WARS: THE BLACK SERIES POE DAMERON ELECTRONIC HELMET
(Ages 8 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: $79.99/Available: 2017)
Put on this deluxe helmet from THE BLACK SERIES and get ready to take flight as skilled X-WING fighter pilot POE DAMERON. Experience battle like never before with a surround sound speaker system that amplifies X-WING and TIE FIGHTER vehicle sounds and transmits communications from loveable sidekick BB-8. This unique helmet features exquisite deco and movie-accurate detail, putting collectors right in the middle of the action.

Build a Millennium Falcon Prop - in the United Kingdom

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, January 9, 2015

Over in another place where they speak English, a number of companies have put out little weekly magazine-with-figure or magazine-with-parts to build something really big.  DeAgostini is doing a 1:1 replica of an 808mm (32-inch) prop of the Millennium Falcon from The Empire Strikes Back in this format, with 100 "issues" of parts and pieces at £8.99-£10.99 per - so it gets pretty expensive.  Click here to read more.  No word on a US distribution plan yet.

 

If we hear more about distribution in other territories, we'll post that too.
