Celebration Anaheim 2015
« on: March 25, 2015, 09:35 AM »
Celebration coming up in just a few weeks...  but no Hasbro panel.   :(

I felt bad for Hasbro yesterday as it was a no win situation for them most likely.  They haven't been given the green light to show off the Ep7 toys, so they were kinda stuck - host no panel and get accused of trying to avoid facing the fans or host a panel showing off farting furby and foam lightsabers and it's Toy Fair anger all over again from the usual suspects.   :-\

Anyway, just starting a thread here in case Hasbro does manage to show off something new at their Celebration booth... which may still happen even without a big 60-minute panel.

Too bad no panel but yeah, the timing of the movie has basically thrown everything off and with Celebration sitting in front of what they probably originally thought would be the release date (May)... what are you going to do. I scanned some of the FB comments on the news there's no panel and... yeah. I don't know what people want or expect anymore when it comes to this hobby, except apparently everything delivered to them on a platter. Last I checked that's not how the world worked.

Anyways, maybe Hasbro does end up showing something and surprises everybody. I read an interview with Simon Pegg last night and he mentioned visiting the set and his daughter playing with the BB-8 (basketball droid from the trailer) model and I thought, this thing is going to make a great, life-size toy. Hasbro would probably be ok showing something like that early on, seeing how it's out there.

No reason they can't show off a 6" 3PO or the new Rebels Obi-Wan that was pictured months ago on that poster but never referred to since. At least, no reason related to the Ep 7 embargo.

IIRC, that became the holographic figure from the TRU Jedi Reveal set

Commander Thorn turned out nice....hard to tell how tall he is in the bubble though. Will be a nice complement to Fox though.

I've been watching Twitter this morning...  sounds like a prototype 6" Rebels Ahsoka is on display in the Hasbro booth - coming to the 6" Black Series line in 2016.

edit:
Rebelscum has a really nice gallery for 6" Ahsoka

The only 3.75" new items are the Jawas, Han Carbonite, The cantina alien and C-3-PO?

Those aren't new... they've been showing them off since NYCC last October.

3.75" Mission Series Rebels Ahsoka and Rebels Vader are the only figures being show live for the first time...  so far.

Is this our first peek at the new Carbo-Han in package?  Looks like a lot of "value" for $10 ($12? $15?) there.

I meant unreleased.  It's kind of hard to type with the huge nerd boner I have after watching the trailer.

SSG has pics of the Hasbro booth.  The only reveals there are the Ahsoka prototype, a TBS 6" figure packaging mockup and packaged versions of Han in Carbonite, Commander Doom, Captain Rex, Commander Thorn and Commander Wolffe.

There was so much information flowing on Twitter, I honestly forgot where I saw them first.  Here's a Jedi News UK Tweet/instagram of Ahsoka.  Vader pics are out there somewhere too, I just can't remember where I saw them.  :-\

Hasbro booth pictures of 6" line
« Reply #14 on: April 17, 2015, 11:10 AM »
Here are some pictures I took of the 6" line at the Hasbro booth at SWC. Interestingly, the 6" Taun Taun and Wampa were already scalped at vendor booths for $90.
