Yeah, no - I didn't mean that to be a negative, I thought it was great.

Hasbro didn't roll over and die at CA, but they sure were the dud of the show.  They brought a little more than was being implied but not much.  Their interaction was mocked on twitter since basically everyone else COULD say something about 2015 but they wouldnt...

For me the pisser was Disney out-Hasbro'd Hasbro with the BAD surprises.  I wanted everything they showed!

Every vendor had something neat going on.  Hasbro just kinda showed up.

Yeah...I mean, what are you really going to spoil at this point showing that first wave of 6" figures? Finn, Rey, and Kylo Ren's costumes were all on display for everyone to see up close and prsonal, and we know who is playing those parts, so what is the need for all the secrecy? Except to be annoying?  ;)

Yeah, other licensees seemed to be into hinting at least what was coming for Ep7, Hasbro just stuck to the "we'll have something for everyone" type non-comment.

Then again, if they are killing collector 3.75" in favor of just 5POA 3.75" and collector 6", I can see why they'd like to keep that as quiet as possible for as long as possible.  :-X

Would have been nice if they could have at least tossed a Kylo/Poe/Finn/Rey prototype in the case to go along with that 6" Ahsoka that won't be released for a year.

Especially since some of those have already leaked out.

Based on Phruby's pics, all Hasbro had to display was older Black Series stuff... you know, the stuff that isn't in production anymore, or never even showed up on pegs due to terrible distribution. Why even bother?

Glad I caught Not-JediMAC's post taking them to task. I'd even be happy with cookie cutter responses recognizing the problem or confirming what kind of lines we'll be getting in the future.

Hasbro had a real small cramped booth. Most of the vendors seemed to have a bigger booth. The outside of the booth was taken up entirely with Furbacca.  There was only one case of Star Wars figures. The rest was build your own lightsabers and crappy unpainted army men toys.  I was talking to someone else about the figures and I said loudly, Too bad you will never find them at retail stores! The hasbro guy was standing next to us and he just kind of sighed.

The round ones are ProTech, I don't know about the oblong stands.
