New Hasbro TIE Fighter


Somewhat lost in the shuffle of the Comic Con hoopla was a tidbit passed along to man on the street Matt Colman. Hasbro is hard at work on a properly scaled TIE Fighter and will probably get it to market sometime in 2006. The progress on this new vehicle has been slow due to budget constraints but it is progressing a little at a time! Good news for vehicle fans who have been fed up with Undersized vehicles for some time.

12" VOTC Is Out!


Our pal jjks comes through once again, with the latest and greatest score on the block! This time, Jamie's the first to stumble upon the new VOTC 12" figures, for $30 a pop at K-Mart. He reports that there were three each of Luke and Boba Fett, but NO Stormtroopers to be found. Unfortunately, it looks like Hasbro reverted BACK to the blue Fett jumpsuit again (unless the grey version is going to be another upcoming running production change). So you 12" collectors out there better keep your eyes peeled for these. Happy hunting JD'ers!
