Watto's Junk Yard / Hasbro to Pay LFL $200 Million in Cash
« on: May 10, 2007, 10:08 AM »
I guess now we know why the price of the figures went up in 2007...  :P


From Hasbro:

Hasbro, Inc. (NYSE: HAS) announced today that it has exercised its call option to repurchase all of the outstanding warrants for Hasbro's common stock currently held by Lucasfilm Ltd. and Lucas Licensing Ltd. (together "Lucas").

Lucas holds exercisable warrants (the "Warrants") to purchase an aggregate of 15,750,000 shares of Hasbro's common stock. The call notice to Lucas stated that Hasbro is exercising its call option to repurchase all of the Warrants for $200 million in cash. Upon closing of the call option Lucas will not hold any warrants to purchase shares of Hasbro's common stock. Hasbro anticipates closing the call option on May 24, 2007. In connection with the repurchase, Hasbro will recognize a final mark to market charge related to these warrants totaling approximately $36.5 million during the 2nd quarter of 2007.

Pursuant to the Warrant Amendment Agreement, entered into between Hasbro and Lucas in January of 2003, Hasbro was given a call option which provided that at any time through October 13, 2016, Hasbro could repurchase all of the Warrants from Lucas for a payment, in Hasbro's choice, of either (i) $200 million in cash or (ii) $220 million worth of Hasbro's common stock, such stock being valued in the manner set forth in the Warrant Amendment Agreement.

Looks like there will be more Star Wars Disney pins this year starting in May...  (thanks to Sharon for the head's up! :))

I don't have any Disney pins, but I might definitely have to track down Emperor Stitch:



That's just too funny to pass up.   :D

« on: April 16, 2007, 06:07 PM »
From Hasbro:



"Finally --an official stand for all of your modern-era Star Wars figures!  You might be familiar with these stands already, as they are the same stands that were packed in the 2006 Star Wars Saga collection basic figures, featuring a movie name on each stand. 
 
Each pack contains 40 stands broken out as follows: 
 
6 Episode I: The Phantom Menace
6 Episode II: Attack of the Clones
7 Episode III: Revenge of the Sith
7 Episode IV: A New Hope
6 Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back
6 Episode VI: Return of the Jedi
2 Expanded Universe
 
In addition, each set comes with a label sheet with 200 character names, which can be applied to the front of the stands.  The character list covers nearly every figure released in the Star Wars line from 2004 through the end of 2007, with multiples for the troopers.
 
The Battle Figure Stand packs will be available exclusively at Celebration IV and online at www.hasbrotoyshop.com, beginning May 24th."

30th Anniversary Collection / 30AC Darth Vader's TIE Advanced x1
« on: April 11, 2007, 01:46 PM »

Do my eyes decieve me or is this a NEW Vader's TIE?   :o

I don't remember Vader's TIE having "ejecting wings" before.  In that picture, it definitely looks like the cockpit attaches to the wings differently than the older version.  Hmmm...


edit:
Here's a picture of the old wings for reference...



Oh, yeah - definitely new wings!   ;D

30th Anniversary Collection / Hasbro 30AC Overload Already?
« on: March 22, 2007, 10:46 AM »
Man, with the amount of crap that's hit the stores in the 2-3 weeks, you'd think there was a movie coming out or something...

- Eight 30AC Basic Figures
- Darth Vader w/Coin Album
- Six Target Order 66 2-packs
- Tantive IV Battle Pack
- Wal-Mart Treachery on Saleucami Battle Pack
- Sith Infiltrator
- V-Wing Starfighter

I'm looking at dropping about $300 to grab the stuff I want from this batch, and that's not even counting the non-3.75" Hasbro stuff...

- 30AC Unleashed Battle Packs Wave 1 (Tantive)
- 2007 Wal-Mart Unleashed Wave
- 30AC Galactic Heroes Wave 2 (Clone Wars, Cantina, Maul)
- 30AC Galactic Heroes Wave 3 (RotJ, Cantina)
- Four 2007 3" Titanium Series Wave 2 Ships (six ships if you count BSG)

Add in the GH figure packs I wanted and I'm up to about $350.

That is a LOT of stuff for a month.  I mean, sure you'll see tons of Spider-Man and Pirates crap this month since both do have movies coming out, but it's looking like there might be just as much new SW stuff in the aisle too...  :-X

Star Wars Jedi vs. Sith Action Figure Battle Pack

"Relive the movies with your favorite figures! The Star Wars Jedi vs. Sith Action Figure Battle Pack includes 5 unique 3 3/4-inch Star Wars Action Figures and accessories from the films! More details coming soon. "

Huh?   ???

I wonder if it's just a repackaging of the old RotS Jedi Vs. Sith Battle Pack?

Other Collectibles / Sideshow Star Wars Diorama Series
« on: February 11, 2007, 12:37 AM »
New line fom Sideshow making it's debut at Toy Fair tomorrow.  Here's the sneak peek at the first one:

Anakin vs. Obi-Wan Diorama



It says they will be in 1:9 scale, which makes them about 7-8", correct?  Makes you wonder if this is why we aren't getting any new Unleashed Figures from Hasbro in 2007...

30th Anniversary Collection / 30AC V-Wing Starfighter
« on: February 11, 2007, 12:00 AM »


Oh yeah, I'm all over this.

Since we don't seem to be getting a V-Wing Pilot figure to go with it, I think I'll use my Cloud Car Pilot to fly this ship since he still doesn't have a ship to fly.   :'(
