Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,100: Ezra Bridger (Star Wars Rebels Mission Series The Ghost)

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, September 17, 2014

Because we're well past the point where making "Better than Ezra" jokes are funny, let's just say that Hasbro's Ezra Bridger turned out quite nicely.  There's a lot of deco and fun details on a figure with only 5 points of articulation.  There's also no gun, no lightsaber, not a single luxury.  Like Robinson Crusoe, it's just a helmet.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,099: Kanan Jarrus (Star Wars Rebels Mission Series The Ghost)

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, September 16, 2014

Unless there are running changes we don't know about, there should be three versions of this Kanan Jarrus in circulation before Thanksgiving.  One is in the Toys R Us exclusive 3-pack, another is packaged with the Phantom at Target, and the third is individually carded in the Saga Legends assortment.  It's a nice figure - good sculpt, clean deco, and it stands nicely too.  Read on!

Star Wars Figure of the Day: Day 2,098: Obi-Wan Kenobi (Star Wars Rebels Secret Exclusive Figure 2014)

By Adam Pawlus — Monday, September 15, 2014

For the first time in years, I'm actually really pleased with a holographic figure!   Obi-Wan Kenobi is exclusive to Toys R Us and started showing up in my neck of the woods over the weekend.  The set has 3 figures and is $19.99, and is arguably worth the asking price.   He has one point of articulation - and I'm scratching my head to name another full-size 3 3/4-inch humanoid Star Wars figure with only one joint - with a really wonderful sculpt and pose. And he's hollow.  Read on!

Star Wars Rebels - New Toys R Us Exclusive In Stores Now

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, September 13, 2014

Despite having just reset recently, Toys R Us stores are re-resetting with a new area filled with Marvel and Star Wars - Hasbro and LEGO mixed - near their usual spot in the stores.  New toys are hitting right now, including the Mission Series: The Ghost set pictured here.  The Ezra Bridger and Kanan Jarrus figures are assumed similar (if not identical) to the regular releases, but you'll note that there's a blacked-out window there for a third figure.

Star Wars Rebels: October 3 on TV, Earlier Online

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, August 19, 2014

As I am lazy and the headline says most of the story, let me just quote this article from the official site regarding the next Star Wars TV show's debut:

"Leading up to its global television debut [with the October 3 telefilm], Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion will be available on Disney Channel SVOD and to verified users beginning Monday, September 29, on WATCHDisneyXD.com and the WATCH Disney XD app."

SDCC 2014: Lucasfilm Pavilion Image Bank

By Mike — Sunday, August 3, 2014

The Lucasfilm Pavilion was a plethora of activity as usual at Comic-Con, and while Disney-Lucas is reportedly planning on "thinning the herd" for their licensors, that doesn't appear to be the case yet. The focal point was on Disney XD's soon to be televised Star Wars Rebels series. Traditional exhibitors such as Her Universe, eFX, and Hallmark showed their latest and greatest. The Yoda puppet replica from eFX looks amazingly accurate and Hallmark, as usual, sells out of their convention exclusives, but gave a sneak peek of this year's Keepsake collectibles. New licensors such as Peavey with their awesome new Star Wars  guitars, Vans, and Jakks with their jumbo plastic figures also were present.

SDCC 2014: Hasbro Panel and 2015 Reveals

By Mike — Sunday, July 27, 2014

As we pass a little over the halfway point of 2014, many collectors are wondering if this has been the worst year of collecting ever. While we’ve had some highlights for The Black Series, especially in the 6 inch scale, one can’t help but feel that 2014 is more of a “placeholder” year. A transition period that came as a result of the dynamic changes for the franchise in 2013 with Hasbro having to change up strategy and make quick realignments of their resources for Episode 7. It sure seems that way with the scarcity of product since the beginning of the year. But based on what Hasbro previewed during their annual Comic-Con Star Wars Day panel, we have some good things to look forward to for the back to school/holiday season and Q1 of  2015.

We have uploaded photos from Hasbro's Booth post panel with the exciting new 2015 reveals.

SDCC14: Hasbro Preview Night Image Bank

By Mike — Wednesday, July 23, 2014

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.
