Hey - it's old Rex!  Pic showed up in Hasbro's FTP under the "Star Wars Universe" banner...  so that makes FOUR 3.75" figures for the Fall.

I can't really tell yet... no one is posting galleries. 

Like Jesse said - their booth is rumored to be a giant cluster due to the exclusive sales - no one has braved it to take photos yet I guess. :P

No surprise, Revan is your winner.

Also, no surprise, Sabine (the "it's weird how she made the final 7 choices instead of Asajj or Mara" candidate) is your "bonus" winner from the poll.   :-X

Time to start a thread with a pic from the booth:


We'll have more pics later tonight most likely.

Well, don't we have that figure reveal coming up soon?  17 minutes or so?  There could still be hope.

Based on new booth photos I've seen so far on Twitter, the 1:30p figure reveals are just the stuff they announced at the panel...  we'll see if anything else pops up in the cases.

3.75" Rebels S2 Inquisitor guy is nice...   not any obvious added articulation there though. (maybe wrists? can't tell if that's a cut joint or just the glove sculpt).

What a panel...
- 6" Ahsoka, Sabine, Kanan, Farmboy Luke, Jango, Revan
- 6" First Order Eilte Pilot and TIE Fighter ($170)
- 3.75' Rebels Season 2 Inquisitor
- New FX Lightsabers for Yoda and Vader


Another chance to settle down all the 3.75" collector angst and they punt on it again.   :-\

Funko has some stuff that is limited (2500 or less) and sells out at shows and some stuff that is "first sold" at SDCC with plans to be sold at retail later (like Tyrion at Target or Walgreens or whatever).

Examples are (and perhaps I didn't word this well) the Greedo/Han 2 pack and the Rancor/Jabba multipack that were/are at SDCC and TRU.

OK, I see what you mean.  The trick there though is that those items were always meant to be TRU retail exclusives. 

They have regular retailer exclusive production runs.  They just found a way to partner up with Entertainment Earth (not HTS) to sell them at the show first so they could call them "SDCC exclusive", even though it's just a regular TRU exclusive item being sold at SDCC first.

I don't have twitter, but would like to ask again when they plan to release 6" Han in Carbonite in regular packaging.  I'm bummed I can't get this awesome piece, or Salacious Crumb for that matter.  Make the packaging different enough for those that can't make it to the cons or don't luck out when they are on HTS.  They are finally doing it for their shared exclusives with TRU.  Just seems like a win-win since they already have the molds done.

Not sure what you mean about finally doing it with TRU shared exclusives?

In the past, the SDCC stuff got split up among a few retailers.  Could be B&N got those and others will show up elsewhere.

Hasbro Tweet:
Got a question for the team behind the #Hasbro #StarWars line? Tweet using the hashtag #HasbroSWQ & it may be answered! #HasbroSDCC

Something tells me this will be a great hashtag to watch this afternoon... I'm sure all the #HasbroSWQ tweets will be oh so positive. :P


I'll still have my fingers crossed to see some articulated 3.75 inch figures and ships at 1:30 today (I assume pacific time).

Yep - The Hasbro SW Panel is from noon - 1:00pm Pacific, new reveals will be in the booth at 1:30pm Pacific.

Interrurpting the discussion to remind folks that our SDCC Image Galleries are being updated throughout the weekend.  I know the Hasbro stuff is boring right now, but hopefully we'll get some good shots of new stuff this afternoon!

Now, back to the discussion... ;)

Hasbro you are not close to perfect, but you sure don't suck as bad as it feels

Well said, Nick.

Anger is just the flip side of passion after all, and the depth of the anger is commensurate with the level of passion that kept this line of toys going for the past 30+ years or whatever. But no question there is a very significant portion of idiocy and entitlement mixed in there too.

Agree.  I can't fault the people for being angry... but I do dislike the trend some websites have of catering to those angry folks, whipping them into frenzies to the point that their very vocal minority is treated like a majority opinion... or at least presented to Hasbro as such.
