Was talking to a casual collector friend last night and he reminded me about the handy shopping guide Hasbro made for us in 2008 for the CW Movie Midnight Madness launch.  He asked me if Hasbro had made one for 9/4 yet and I let him know about Disney and the wall of silence we've got this time. 

I had forgotten all about that Hasbro PDF...  maybe Hasbro will surprise us and get us something like that via Hasbro Pulse closer to 9/4?

God, I forgot all about that thing. I probably still have the one printed somewhere all marked up.

Bought The Ghost, The Phantom and Rebels speeder bike set (Ezra, Sabine and ST) on clearance at WM. Plus had to get the Ant-man set after seeing the film last week.

The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: San Diego Comic-Con 2015

Some of the offline conversations have been just as fervent. What I'm looking forward to least about the Hasbro panel reveals will be the "told you so" commentaries afterward. The whole entitled sect of collectors have become more vocal and intolerable over the last couple years. People still don't get that the market and model for toys has evolved. Adam Pawlus recently wrote a damn fine "state of the hobby" in his latest QnA. I encourage folks to read the final 6 paragraphs.

Ultimately for me, it makes no difference. More limited edition "collector" figures? Great, bring 'em on! More 5 POA "crap"? I'm fine with that prospect too. Hasbro cured me of my completist attitude a long time ago to the point I've sold off some pieces that just didn't matter to me - comic packs, Evolutions sets, EU items, some 6" figures, etc. I've branched out to other things as the Hasbro "collector focused" era has wound down and that has allowed me to appreciate more foreign market products -- even LEGO.

Star Wars Anthology / Re: Star Wars Spin-Off #2 - Han Solo!

I'd like to see how Charlie Cox from Daredevil would be as Han. He's the right age, a little short maybe, but as intense he can be on DD I think he could pull it off. Pratt does nothing for me, maybe as Indy, but not Han.

They showed The Force Awakens teaser poster at Star Wars Celebration.  Anybody know if this is available to buy yet, and where?

I always used to buy my posters at ShopStarWars.com, but have no idea where to go for something like this.

Dave I just discovered that there is a way to get one through Disney Movies Anywhere

Something's fishy

Well, this sucks.  I guess the days of offering multipacks that are either all new or all repacks are over.  And this Jabba does look good, which makes things that much worse for people who have everything else in this set from previous releases. 

One thing did occur to me though.  Was there some perhaps some contractual stipulation in the deal with WalMart for their exclusive SOTDS exclusive release that would disallow Hasbro from offering that Jabba in a retail exclusive for another chain?  It makes me wonder just a bit.

Good question. If so, I'm glad because that Walmart version was crap = accessories were good but that Jabba was like a dog toy.

I really dig the presentation.

Have we gotten any official confirmation that the Jabba is new? I just remember all of a sudden websites were saying "yeah it's new" and all we've gotten is that one RAZR quality cell phone picture for proof. If anyone with knowledge actually came out and said Jabba was new, I missed it.

Hasbro confirmed it (sorta) at Celebration Anaheim:

"...can you confirm if that is a new 3.75 Jabba the Hutt inside?"

Hasbro: I'll have to go back to the team to make sure, but I believe so, all-new.
