With Hot Toys' announcement of their new 1/6 and 1/4 scale license, it will be interesting to see what direction in both product and quality Sideshow will be pursuing. They certainly make a strong case by continuing a formidable representation of Sixth Scale figures like the upcoming Sixth Scale X-Wing Luke and Arc Trooper. The new Premium Format Boba Fett also looks fantastic with its more action oriented stature as opposed to the version released a few years earlier.
Hasbro provides us with official photos of their 2015 reveals from yesterday's panel. Click here to check them out!
We have uploaded photos from Hasbro's Booth post panel with the exciting new 2015 reveals.

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.
We've posted a slew of early photos from Hasbro's booth, including their huge Star Wars Command diorama and store exclusives.

Hasbro added a few upcoming items to their Comic-Con booth over the weekend. If you haven't had enough Jedi Starfighters, and I imagine most of you have, then you have two more "down scaled" versions to look forward to next February.
Gentle Giant came in with all hands on deck for this year's Comic-Con. With 9 exclusives and 4 being Star Wars, GG wanted to make a splash this year. Their other non-Star Wars licenses that include The Walking Dead and their proprietary Honey Trap line are doing phenomenally well. But an assortment that has been steadily growing and gaining more fans is their Jumbo Vintage Kenner line.
Right on the heels of today's SDCC Hasbro panel announcement, Amazon has posted pre-orders for their exclusive Droid Factory Build-A-Droid Figure assortment, The 6 figures consists of characters that were originally planned to be released for The Legacy Collection Droid Factory, but was
Angry Birds is a bonafide hit, and we're going to make another hit with Angry Birds 2: Telepods. That's the primary message Hasbro wanted to convey in today's SDCC panel. The Rovio app and mash up has been the highest rated Angry Birds game ever and reached the top of the charts in 115 countries. That's a pretty big accomplishment, and one that should enamor the franchise to a lot of younger fans, which has been their overall strategy.
