From Hasbro PR team, Re: Global Access to Khetanna:

"It has been great to hear the reaction to the HasLab launch and know there is a strong interest from our fans globally. Right now, this initiative is available in the U.S., but we’ve been working for a while on how best to offer Jabba’s Sail Barge to fans globally if the campaign in the U.S. successfully reaches the 5,000 threshold and hope to have an update to share soon."

6" Zuckuss - TRU exclusive


6" Mimban Stormtrooper - Walmart exclusive

(So Walmart will be equally frustrating to both 3.75" and 6" army builder fans of the Mimban Stormtrooper!)

Black Series 6" Gamorrean Guard - Exclusive to Target


6" Commander Wolffe

I'll be honest that I'm a bit confused over some of these, but I believe Wolffe is a shared exclusive between The Disney Store, Banes & Noble, and Gamestop.

I just think this is an area where Hasbro shouldn't even bother.  This isn't core to what they do.

I will argue time and again for Hasbro's right to try new things and create new products to find new opportunities/customers...  with that said though, this is one that just doesn't seem to work.  Like you guys have said - the unarticulated figure, the strange choice in scene, the price is too high. 

I think this idea could be great with the right choices (repack a Vader/Bespin Luke with a Bespin Gantry) and a lower price, but right now it just feels like a cash grab.  Seems like the Kmart/Store 6" exclusives with the bases are kind of the same thing with better figures and a cheaper price.

Did Hasbro say why they were excluding international customers?  Shipping logistics too hard, or no rights to sell internationally, or challenges with "exclusives" and different international laws?

A few of the OUS markets do have distribution agreements/laws where Hasbro can't technically do direct-to-consumer (which is why HTS is mainly just US and Canada), but my understanding is shipping logistics are also a factor (not wanting to have to set up the site to compute/predict shipping rates on a 14-lb item all over the world a year from now).

I can see them working things out to get Canada into the mix (using the same agreements they have for HTS), but the rest of the world is probably going to have to wait and see.

Is the Amazon Exclusive 3-Pack of Droids 6" or 3.75" scale?  I took a look and didn't spot any discussion about them in either section?

Because I got too tired last night and never got around to starting threads for those. (I guess if I collected the 6" I probably would have made the time, but I don't so... :P)

Many SOLO items were held back for paid reveals closer to the April launch date...

$20 Class A (‘Nemesis’ Chariot w/Nemesis)
$30 Class B (Han Speeder with Han)
? Class C (TIE Fighter)

Jayson has been doing an excellent job keeping track of these things... check out his “rumor” list if you haven’t been doing so. ;)

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. ;)

I can't stop looking at the high-res pics...  the Ithorian, the mini-rancor, the rancor claws on the partitions; the gamorrean head on the wall; the sink, grill, and frogs in the galley, it's all too much goodness.  :o

My guess is that these will be 2 per case

Internet sleuthing has the rumored case pack as eight.  I think they are trying to keep the cases around the $100-120 range.

High Res pics...  I don't normally post the FULL giant size pics, but in a case like this, it's worth it to pour over the details.  Below, there are 120x230 thumbnails that link to 1200x2300 pics with a link below them to a FULL SIZE 3600x6900 picture to ogle.
