Toy Fair 2018
« on: February 4, 2018, 06:02 PM »
Toy Fair is coming soon...  but based on social media it seems like the German version of Toy Fair is already offering up teasers for the Solo toy line.

In order to maintain a relationship with Hasbro, I am unable to post or link to any leaked Solo products until officially confirmed...  but I thought I'd go ahead and set up the Solo forum and this thread in case anyone wants to, um, speculate about things out there.

LEGO has stated that they won't be showing off any licensed products that will be released after May (which is all Jurassic World sets, DC sets and everything Marvel outside of Avengers Infinity War). Meaning we SHOULD see Solo stuff, but it wasn't specified.

I wonder if Hasbro will have a similar gag order? Their latest offerings at these cons have been lackluster at best, and it seems the new hip thing is for these companies to pay media outlets like USA Today, MTV, or the NY Times to officially reveal stuff. I can't imagine we'll see much outside of a few Han/Lando/Chewie 5POA figures. Which will then be reshown at SDCC in July.

Hasbro should (*subject to change*) be able to talk about some of the Solo stuff coming in April. I doubt we see all of it, but some of it should be on display. 



Also, since I forgot to post it in the original post -

Family life will keep me from hitting Toy Fair again this year (really wanted to be there for the chance at Solo stuff), but we will do our best to cover what we can.  As always, Twitter will be the fastest route to news as it hits...

I respectfully request that someone ask Hasbro about the utter debacle that is the Walmart 6" Kylo Ren with Throne exclusive. Please get an answer on this! Has it been cancelled? Did they only make 200 of them? Wtf?

And while we're at it, what about running change grey hair TFA Han they showed off forever ago?

My only question for Hasbro is if there's any prayer that they could start squeezing in 2 or 3 or however many original OT items per year... not another Obi-Wan or Luke or Vader... but something they haven't made in the modern line.

I think the Anthology movies set in the time between ROTS and ROTJ could make this a possibility.

Per twitter there will be a Hasbro Pulse app that lets you manage your collection.  That seems like a solid idea if it’s done right.

For twitter follows I recommend Galactic Hunter and Star Wars Action News to stay up on things during today’s presentation.  Oh and Adam Pawlus’ 16bit account cuz he’ll keep you up to date on everything else too.  So you kinda know what they’re talking about that probably doesn’t interest you but you’ll also know when Star Wars begins.

Gone today and just looking through things tonight and WOW, this has to be one of Hasbro's best showings in years. So much goodness, and just the shot in the arm the line needed.

I have uploaded the Hasbro Toy Fair 2018 press images into our Image Database.

Really amazed at Toy Fair this year.  What a HUGE showing compared to the last few years.  It's nice when Hasbro can actually TALK about new things. ;)
