The Force Awakens / Toy Fair 2016
« on: February 1, 2016, 10:50 AM »
Just a little under two weeks to go so it's time for a thread, I guess.

Hasbro's "2016 Entertainment Brand Press Preview" is set to begin at 1:30pm ET on Saturday, February 13th.   The usual slide show (Transformers, My Little Pony, Star Wars, Marvel), then booth visit.  No word yet if any phones will be allowed, but if so I'm sure news will be flowing on Twitter and social media.

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Walmart Black Series 3.75" Wave 4
« on: January 4, 2016, 01:25 PM »
So, Wave 3 is becoming a bit more common.  Time to start thinking about Wave 4 again.  Here were the rumored figures, with (now dead) Walmart links:


Really hoping one of the bottom two is a TFA 3.75" SA Han Solo.

Watto's Junk Yard / Hasbro Tries to Create Their Own Movie Universe
« on: December 15, 2015, 10:52 AM »
Under a new deal between the studio [Paramount] and Hasbro's Allspark Pictures, G.I. Joe will join up with characters from the Micronauts, Visionairies, M.A.S.K. and ROM brands

This sounds interesting.... but at the same time, it could be pretty lame based on some of the other Hasbro movies we've seen.

I have no idea who is going to be in wave 5, but you can pre-order it now at EE. :P

Not sure if this will be more TFA stuff or if this is when we start seeing the Ahsoka/Jango/Luke/Kanan that were shown at SDCC?

The Black Series 6" Figures / New York Comic-Con 2015
« on: October 7, 2015, 09:42 AM »
Hasbro will once again have a bigger presence at NYCC this year.  There is a preview party tonight and then a full panel on Thursday.  Here are the panel details:

Hasbro Star Wars - Thu. October 8th - 11:15 AM - 12:15 PM (ET)

Join members of the Hasbro team as they discuss the popular Hasbro Star Wars line that hit shelves on Force Friday! Attendees will get an in-depth look at Hasbro’s latest action figure offerings with a look at new product coming later this year.

I'm assuming they will have the "Titanium Series Helmets" there since they just previewed those at Hasbro Pulse. Rumor mill says they will have a few other new things to reveal...

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Walmart Black Series 3.75" Wave 3
« on: September 23, 2015, 01:48 PM »
Walmart links have been updated with pics! 

- Han Solo
- Rey (Jakku)
- Poe Dameron
- Finn (Jakku)

Not sure if these four are all in Wave 3 or if one of them will be pushed to Wave 4...

I guess I should have figured Han was going to be a repack (since Luke, Chewie, and Vader were), but I was secretly wishing it'd be Ep7 Old Han. :(

The Black Series 6" Figures / Walmart 6" Imperial Shock Trooper
« on: September 16, 2015, 10:22 AM »
Yes, it looks like we have yet another exclusive 6" figure - 6" Imperial Shock Trooper.

Starwars-figuren has the details on what looks like an OT Stormtrooper with Shocktrooper deco (won't copy the pic here since they get pretty angry about that sort of thing  :-X).

edit: already up for pre-order in the UK.  Here's a boxed pic from Order 66 Toys in the UK -

You had to know this was coming, right?

From Rebelscum - it's Poe's Blue deco X-Wing.  Not sure if this is a TRU exclusive too (like the Desert TIE) or if it's a regular release.

New listing popped up on the CANADA TRU site - (again - Canada, not USA).

Toys R Us Exclusive First Order Special Forces TIE Fighter (Desert Damage Deco) with Exclusive Pilot.

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Walmart Black Series 3.75" Wave 2
« on: September 4, 2015, 02:29 AM »
Not online yet, but it sounds like Wave 2 will be:

- ANH Princess Leia (Yavin Ceremony)
- TFA First Order Stormtrooper
- TFA Kylo Ren

You can kinda see a preview of Kylo in this pic from Yakface's Facebook page (middle right or photo).  You'll see there appears to be a 3.75" Rey figure in there too... not sure if she'll end up in this wave or Wave 3.

First wave is starting to pop up on 

Price = $12.93 and all repacks so far. :(

- Darth Vader
- Chewbacca
- ROTJ Luke Skywalker

And yes, like the rumor that popped up this AM, they are BOXED like the 6" stuff.

Based on Dorkside Toys pre-orders, these guys (and three other TBD figures) are Wave 4:

- General Hux
- First Order Snowtrooper
- X-Wing Pilot Asty
