Movie Heroes / Saga Legends '12-? / 2012 Movie Heroes Battle Packs
« on: February 13, 2012, 04:31 PM »
Looking over the Toy Fair stuff again today...  what's the deal with Hasbro apparently announcing two new movie Battle Packs for the Fall?  Something about a new Naboo 3-pack and new Bespin 3-pack?  I haven't read too much on those, but I guess there must have been some mention of them at the collector event?

Spun off from the rumors thread...
Hmmm... closer inspection reveals that there are SIX with duplicate numbers (updated the list above).  And one from each movie...

EP1 JAR JAR
EPII CLONE LIEUTENANT
EPIII CLONE
EPIV SANDTROOPER
EPV PRINCESS LEIA
EPVI DARTH VADER

Hmmm.  A mystery, we have.

Tweets from the Hasbro show are suggesting that these six figures will be on some sort of retro look card using some kind of lost Kenner graphics or something...    Apparently some sort of "Carbonite Freeze Chamber" box set packaging at 2012 SDCC and then the regular carded figures will be available at retail singly (like they did with the 2011 SDCC Death Star / Revenge set I assume).

GalacticHunter tweeted a pic of the card art for the set...  the presentaion slide says:
"Recreation of a "Lost" Line Look from the Kenner Vault! 
Carbonite Freezing Chamber Package
6 highly articulated single carded 3 3/4" figures, one from each film
plus a new exclusive figure"

Sounds like possibly a "JarJar Carbonite Block" will potentially only be available in the SDCC set (like Salacious and Mouse Droid in the 2011 set were).  Watch for more details from Toy Fair soon! :)

The Vintage Collection '10-'13 / Toy Fair 2012
« on: February 7, 2012, 11:31 AM »
So... this weekend already!  And we don't even have a thread yet?  Crazy!  What do you hope/expect to see?

I'm expecting them to have that MTT there and ready to show off and I'm hoping we get a good look at some of the VC figures on RS's rumor list...  but, with SDCC, Celebration VI, and NYCC all coming later this year, I'm not going to be surprised if they end up having to hold a lot of the Fall stuff back for those shows. :(

I'd really like to see...
Toy Fair = Full Spring 2012 product line for VC and CW, preview of stuff for Fall including the con/show exclusives
SDCC = Full Fall 2012 product line for VC and CW
Celebration 6 = Spring 2013 product preview for VC and CW
NYCC = all the AOTC 3D re-issue crap product

But, who knows how they will choose to break things up this year...


And a quick note on JD's planned coverage:
Unfortunately, I can't be in NY this weekend to cover the show (ending my streak at 4 in a row :(), but I think we will still have some coverage and pics of hte Hasbro event here at JD thanks to a NY forumite who has volunteered to try to get down to the Hasbro show for us.

You knew it was only a matter of time...

HBO and Dark Horse Announce Game of Thrones Partnership!

Quote
One of the most popular and critically acclaimed cable television shows of 2011 was Game of Thrones, created by David Benioff and D. B. Weiss for HBO. The hit series is based on A Song of Ice and Fire, the best-selling fantasy novel series by George R. R. Martin.

Dark Horse Deluxe is proud to announce, in partnership with HBO, a vast Game of Thrones product line debuting in the spring of 2012, leading up to the show’s second-season premiere in April. Licensed product categories derived from the series will span a large range, including statues, busts, and action figures; prop and jewelry replicas; and barware, stationery, and other collectibles. This exciting new line of products debuts with a range of branded magnets, patches, playing cards, coaster sets, and more.

“We are delighted to be part of HBO’s licensing roster for Game of Thrones. We are big fans of the television adaptation,” said Dark Horse’s VP of Product Development, David Scroggy. “We are working closely with HBO to develop a line of products inspired by the series that will delight the fan base.”

Look for the first round of items in Diamond’s January Previews catalog; they will arrive in specialty retailers everywhere in March of 2012.

Based on the best-selling fantasy book series A Song of Ice and Fire, by George R. R. Martin, Game of Thrones debuted on HBO in March 2011. In a land where summers span decades and winters can last a lifetime, trouble is brewing. From the scheming south and the savage eastern lands, to the frozen north and the ancient Wall that protects the realm from the darkness beyond, two powerful families are engaged in a deadly cat-and-mouse game for control of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros. As betrayal, lust, intrigue, and supernatural forces shake the four corners of the Kingdoms, their bloody struggle for the Iron Throne will have unforeseen and far-reaching consequences.


I am so, so , so all over a Ned Stark action figure for my desk.  :)

RIP, Saga Legends.   :-\

Welcome, Movie Heroes.

From the Q&A at SWAN:
"There will be three packaging line looks in 2012 - Movie Heroes, which includes Episode 1 and all other episodes; The Clone Wars Animated, and the Vintage Collection.  Saga Legends is being replaced by Movie Heroes as the assortment that includes characters from all six films."


Nice to see them confirm how many lines there will be and how they are planning to use that new Maul card design that popped up a while back... should be interested in see the Legends repacks on that new Maul card alongside some of the new TPM stuff (like that Walmart exlcusive wave is supposed to be).

This is another item I'd like to get a better look at - according to the panel is should have more TPM Pod Race Pilots , plus all their little flags from the parade?  Sounds like a neat box set!

The Bullpen / LEGO Makes Theirs Marvel
« on: July 20, 2011, 01:38 PM »
Hot off the heels of their DCU announcement comes news that LEGO will be making Marvel sets too.

Holy totally compatible superhero sets!  LEGO Batman, JLA, Spider-Man, Avengers, and X-Men?  All on the shelves at the same time??  Going to be a busy, busy summer 2012 in the LEGO aisle! 

I'm really surprised by this... lots of industry speculation was that the license would move from Mega-Bloks to Hasbro's new Kre-Os... guess that didn't work out like Hasbro wanted.

LEGO gets full DC license

Oh man, I know two five-year olds who are going to freak out over this news...  not to mention their dad, who will be even more excited for his LEGO booth tour at Toy Fair next year. :)
