SDCC13: Hasbro Booth Updates

By Mike — Sunday, July 21, 2013

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. 

SDCC13: Gentle Giant Supersizes Jumbo

By Mike — Sunday, July 21, 2013

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.

Amazon: TLC Droid Factory Exclusive Pre-order

By Mike — Friday, July 19, 2013

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.

SDCC Bunnywith an Affinity for Slave Women and SUCKLE

By Adam Pawlus — Thursday, July 18, 2013

While not a proper Star Wars item, there's a really cool, really weird item being sold at the DKE Toys booth.   Bunnywith an Affinity for Slave Women is a bagged $12 figure available in MUSCLE flesh color or plain white, bagged with a header card.  It looks like a certain fat crime lord, and is actually pretty amusing.

SDCC13: EE Exclusive Black Series Greedo

By Mike — Thursday, July 18, 2013

We took some shots (no pun intended) of the upcoming Entertainment Earth exclusive Black Series 6 inch Greedo. The nicely sculpted, super articulated Rodian bounty hunter has turned out quite well and is another great addition to a new 6 inch series that is winning over many. UPDATE: BS Greedo is an exclusive reveal for Entertainment Earth and not exclusive to them only. Greedo will be a general release. Our apologies for the confusion.

Gentle Giant: SDCC Exclusive Jumbo POTF Yakface

By Mike — Tuesday, June 25, 2013

Surprise? There is another...Gentle Giant SDCC exclusive. Today's announcement is plenty times awesome, especially for those who are versed in their vintage Kenner history and know that this was only released in Canada and Australia in this packaging format and a Tri-logo card in Europe, but never released in the U.S. (sound familiar 2013 Movie Heroes fans?) The fourth SDCC exclusive is a Jumbo Vintage POTF Yakface complete with coin!
