Panels are good and fun, but we're collectors and the convention floor and dealer booths are where the hunts are at, particularly for this show where mostly everything is Star Wars. There was a bountiful amount of vintage Kenner merchandise and even if prices were beyond your budget, being able to see and touch a MISB Vintage Death Star brings back many memories, at least for this reporter. I literally spent all day Saturday browsing through all kinds of goodies from loose action figures to signed McQuarrie prints.
The Disney booth was ripe with activity as Celebrationers clamored for their Star Wars meets Mouse themed exclusives. Their Holographic Leia Vinylmation that was limited to 2,500 pieces sold out by Saturday.
After 10 years of sponsoring these spectacular Celebration Diorama projects, you would think that Frank D'Iorio would slow down. But his Return to Tatooine Diorama Workshop is his most ambitious yet with a to scale Sandcrawler and Jabba's Sail Barge providing the spectacular centerpieces.
The Celebration VI store had many things you can buy to satiate your appetite for show exclusive items, and since you're presumably a Star Wars fan, everything has its appeal.
You wondered what's underneath that helmet since Comic-Con and here it is, Presenting some loose shots of the new Royal Guard sans helmet and cape. Enjoy!
Remember Durge? Nine years ago, he was revealed as a toy for the very first time and this animated version of the figure came a little bit later. Is he cool?
Stay Class I-ey, Hasbro! Because Hasbro is cool, I got to play with the Class I and Class II 2013 vehicles. You saw some impressions of Class II earlier, and now I get to tell you about the new Mini-Rigs! So read on, and know that I had me a great time.
We've posted photos from today's Hasbro panel and booth. There are a few things to be excited about, including a TRU Vintage Slave I in 2013 and images of new Droid Factory and Clone Wars figures. Not much in terms of exclusives, but a new assortment of down-sized Class II vehicles to make them more affordable for the mommy market will surely cause debate.
TOP STORY: From the bowels of Orlando, it's Hasbro! Since the debut of their booth was packed with previously unveiled items, the level of excitement for the big slideshow was even higher than usual. Armed with a laptop and my pals Mike and Shannon, we aim to bring you not-very-timely information on this grand event.
Publishing a book of all the 3 3/4 inch Star Wars action figures ever produced by Kenner/Hasbro is quite the daunting task. Adam has been writing his Figure Of The Day feature for the past 5 or 6 years and has yet to hit 2,000. Steve Sansweet's Action Figure Archive has always been the seminal book in prose, style, and format and we've been waiting for an update for 13 years since the Power of the Force 2 collection from the Nineties.
You've been waiting for him since he was first revealed at Comic-Con. The new and pretty awesome Darth Malgus Premium Format Figure is now available for pre-order at Sideshow. The exclusive version features an alternate "unmasked" head.
The Jumbo Vintage line has been trending up in popularity amongst collectors, and Gentle Giant gives reason for more excitement for this assortment with a sneak peek of the upcoming Jumbo Vintage Rocket Firing Boba Fett.
Check out our Image Bank for photos of the Collectibles panel and slide show from other licensors and Lucasfilm partners such as Sideshow, eFX, and Think Geek.
This is all you want to know; there wasn't anything new today. With no show exclusive and a scaled down presence for Celebration VI, Hasbro was remarkably low key for Day 1. Yet Hasbro Star Wars brand reps were engaging inquiring fans in other ways such as demonstrating the various features of the new MTT and diplomatically answering questions about distribution, which quite frankly, has reached its saturation point from a reporting point of view.
