The Clone Wars '08-'13 / 2010 Clone Wars Packaging
« on: November 20, 2009, 01:27 PM »
Jayson posted a preview or the 2010 Packaging Style for Clone Wars over at Yakface.  I think it looks pretty snazzy.  Definitely a lot more color and pop compared to the mostly white look we've ben seeing lately...  

Hasbro said they were hoping to differentiate the Legacy and Legends stuff from CW a bit more with the 2010 packaging... I wonder if that means that the Legacy Droid Factory replacement stuff will share the blue too or if it will veer off into it's own look/style?

Shadows of the Dark Side '10-'11 / 2010 Disney Star Tours Box Set
« on: November 17, 2009, 10:37 AM »
No details on what the set will contain, but confirmation of a new Star Tours box set was offered up in the Q&A @ RTM:

2. With the announcement that Star Tours at Disneyland getting a makeover in 2011, will we finally see non-droid Star Tours characters made? I'm talking about the flight crew (cast members), Teek or the Mon-Calamari flight controller? A full-sized Star Speeder 3000 that could double as a carrying case would be a welcome addition as well.

Answer: Yes, there will be some new non-Droid characters debuting in a special Star Tours themed set next year. Stay tuned for new of that right around Toy Fair time. As for a full-sized Star Speeder 3,000... not a chance that we'll do anything to interact with 3-3/4" figures.

So, non-droid characters from Star Tours - good idea?  bad idea?

123
In the latest Q&A @ JTA, Hasbro has confirmed that the planned Camie & Fixer (SW: Empire - Darklighter) Comic Pack will be coming as a convention exclusive set in 2010.

Since Hasbro has already confirmed a Visionaries Maul/? Comic Pack for SDCC'10, where do you guys think this set will land - a second SDCC Comic Pack or will this be a Celebration V* exclusive Comic Pack?  Or maybe a surprise like NYCC or Fan Days in Dallas?

* (assuming of course that LFL gets their act together and actually pulls off C-V next summer  :P)

12" Figures / Sideshow 12" Sandtrooper Squad Leader
« on: October 9, 2009, 10:45 AM »
Sideshow Collectibles has posted a new teaser image to announce their new 12" Sandtrooper Squad Leader figure!





Priority Pre-Ordering begins next Thursday, October 15th, with the launch of the weekly Sideshow Newsletter!

126
From the Q&A At Sandtroopers:

Finally, the half-cyborg Darth Maul from Visionaries, with the cool lower torso, was a scratch from our coming pack line.  The good news is that he *will* be coming out next year as a Comic Con exclusive (still in the Comic Pack format but with a special treatment). The second figure has yet to be announced and we'll save that for an update next Spring.

Any guesses on the second figure in the pack?

The Clone Wars '08-'13 / CW "Epic Encounter" Ultimate BP
« on: September 9, 2009, 11:14 AM »
Hmmm... looky what the spies sent us last night. No details on when/where just yet, but it sure looks like the type of thing you'd see for the Target UBP line or maybe some sort of CostCo exclusive or something?

After some discussion among the JD Staff, we've decided to use the results from the 2009 JediDefender Wishlist: Tournament of Champions for the 2009 Hasbro Fans' Choice Poll.

We've been running the JD Wishlists for the last 5 years and we feel they are a pretty accurate representation of what the fans here at JD actually want to see Hasbro make.  Hasbro has always complimented us on the lists and the fact that they are honest opinions, including both resculpts we'd like and all-new figures.

So, like I was saying, we're going to use the JD Wishlist results... with a twist!  Here are the '09 JD Wishlist Results (with officially confirmed figures removed from the list):

1. Bom Vimdin16. Emperor Palpatine (Senate Duel)
2. Weequay (Skiff Master)17. Endor Rebel Soldier (Super Articulated Resculpt)
3. Bespin Han Solo (Super Articulated Resculpt)18. Fozec
4. Torryn Farr19. Kithaba
5. Doctor Evazan (Super Articulated Resculpt)20. Lumat/Wompus
6. Ponda Baba (Super Articulated Resculpt)21. Nien Nunb (Super Articulated Resculpt)
7. Hoth Princess Leia (Super Articulated Resculpt)22. Nikto (Vintage version)
8. Rebel Fleet Trooper (Super Articulated Resculpt)   23. Sim Aloo
9. ANH Grand Moff Tarkin (Super Articulated Resculpt)24. Zam Wessel (Super Articulated Resculpt)
10. Hoth Rebel Soldier (Echo Base)25. Tonnika Sisters (2-Pack)
11. Hoth Luke Skywalker (Super Articulated Resculpt)26. Joruus C'baoth
12. Mosep27. Admiral Pellaeon
13. Sergeant Doallyn28. Imperial Commander (SA Black Tunic)
14. Admiral Ackbar (Super Articulated Resculpt)29. Guri
15. Cliegg Lars30. ??

See #30 there, the one with the question marks?  We want your help in deciding who should get that slot!  It's one last chance to lobby for one last figure to get promoted to the “Top 30” list.


There are two rules - #1 you only get one vote per member and #2 your vote has to be one of the JD Wishlist: ToC nominees listed below.  If you vote more than once or pick someone not on the list, your post(s) will be deleted!

Celebration V: Orlando / 2010 Celebration V Confirmed by Hasbro
« on: July 23, 2009, 11:07 AM »
Celebration V has been confirmed for 2010!

Hasbro launched a new Clone Wars Diorama contest and one of the parts of the grand prize is that the winner will ..."have their scene displayed at the 2010 Star Wars Celebration!"


I wonder if LFL is going to be ticked that Hasbro leaked it before they could give it the big announcement treatment at Friday's panel?   :P

133
Kudos to all of you who 2-years ago predicted that this day would come...

McQuarrie Box Sets

Pass.   ::)

The Legacy Collection '08-'10 / San Diego Comic-Con 2009
« on: July 7, 2009, 01:02 PM »
Well, the time for the panel has been announced...

Friday, July 24th - 10-11 AM (Pacific):
Hasbro Star Wars
(Room 7AB)
Featuring Derryl DePriest (Hasbro Global Marketing), Brian Parrish (Hasbro Design), Mark Boudreaux (Hasbro Design), Brian Merten (Hasbro Design), Chad Donvito (Hasbro US Marketing) and Vickie Stratford (Hasbro Design). Come to the Hasbro Star Wars Panel to hear what the Hasbro Design and Marketing teams have in store for the remainder of 2009. Catch a special sneak peek into some 2010 secrets, too! Also includes Q&A time.


Just a little over 2 more weeks until the show.  What are you all hoping to see? 

I'm expecting a bunch of new vehicles since they've been teasing so many lately and I'm really hoping we get to see all the way to the end of the year - Wave 9 (RotJ), Wave 10 (ANH), Wave 11 (RotS), and Wave 12 (ESB).  Wave 13 (EU) would be nice, but I can wait for Toy Fair on that one if needed.  ;)
