Star Wars Resistance / Re: Star Wars Galaxy of Adventure Basic Figures
« on: December 12, 2018, 12:09 PM »
What kinda blows my mind is these got out to coincide with the toons on YouTube but resistance stuff is nowhere to be found.

Well, to be fair the Resistance stuff is 100% new sculpts and these are just new packaging.  I imagine it's much easier/faster to get new stuff out if you're just creating new packaging for old sculpts.  The other factor is that these GOA figures are a new line/sku that are being launched as an exclusive (Walmart) first. 

For the Resistance stuff, which is part of the regular basic figure line, I can't imagine a buyer like Target was too excited about the idea of stocking a THIRD basic figure line next to the unsold TLJ and SOLO 3.75" lines (and the expensive TVC stuff too).  Maybe it is better to let Christmas clearance kill those lines then launch the Resistance 3.75" stuff fresh in Spring?

Looks like HTS will remain alive.

Hasbro sent out some clarifying info today re-iterating the info from yesterday that it is the sale of items through the brand websites (transformers.com, nerf.com, etc) that is ending.  You can still purchase items, access your account, and check existing orders using your login at Hasbro Toy Shop.

However, today's email also made it pretty clear that changes are coming to the HasbroToyShop website starting on January 18, 2019. Stay tuned for more details.

I'll miss HTS if they are dying. I know their inability to keep everything in stock bothered a lot of people, but that was due to the complex agreements in place with their retail customers more then they not being run well. They were a help more often then not and losing another place to buy from just makes it that much harder to collect.

Based on the gift card info on the site it sounds like January 18th, 2019 will be the big change day...

Hopefully they can still sell convention exclusives.

I think the fact that EE sold the most recent show exclusives tells you exactly how things could play out from this point forward on those...

Are they definitely all repacks?  Which Bespin Han is that?

Yes, they are all repack/reused sculpts.  Force Link repacks don't have the Force Link chips anymore though apparently.

Bespin Han is the 2015 SL24 Bespin Han Solo sculpt.

Stormtrooper is slightly interesting as it's the SOLO Mimban Stormtrooper Commander kitbash (from the Target 6-pack) without the pauldron.  Nice general pose army builder... but not worth investing in too many at $10 each.

I don't know that we need a whole forum for these so I'll just stick them in here since this is sort of the Spring 2019 5POA line forum.

Now that Disney/LFL has officially announced the Galaxy of Adventure animated shorts and the Hasbro line supporting it ("available on December 1, exclusively at Walmart and then nationwide in January 2019"), I can start up a thread for the figures without incurring the wrath of Hasbro PR team. ;)


Yakface has been out in front of this for a while so hop on over there for pics of the first wave.  Basically 5POA line repacks with a mini-comic in totally tubular packaging.

Star Wars Galaxy of Adventures to Debut on New “Star Wars Kids” Website and YouTube Channel

Brand new series of family friendly OT animation shorts to help new generation of kids learn the OT characters.


I'm not sure why today's kids can't just watch the OT movies and instead need flashy new cartoons to meet Han, Luke, and Leia, but whatever I guess. :P

It's never shown up at any physical store that I am aware of

They made it to the shelves at Canada TRU Stores.  I saw a bunch of them on my Canadian road trip last August.

Not so much in the USA though...

CASSIAN ANDOR LIVE-ACTION SERIES ANNOUNCED

DIEGO LUNA RETURNS AS THE ROGUE ONE HERO IN A SPY THRILLER FOR DISNEY'S DIRECT-TO-CONSUMER STREAMING SERVICE.

Disney Chairman and CEO Bob Iger announced today that Lucasfilm is in development on a second Star Wars live-action series for Disney+, the Company’s new direct-to-consumer streaming service. The series, which will go into production next year, follows the adventures of rebel spy Cassian Andor during the formative years of the Rebellion and prior to the events of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Diego Luna will reprise the role of Andor. “Going back to the Star Wars universe is very special for me,” said Luna. “I have so many memories of the great work we did together and the relationships I made throughout the journey. We have a fantastic adventure ahead of us, and this new exciting format will give us the chance to explore this character more deeply.”

The rousing spy thriller will explore tales filled with espionage and daring missions to restore hope to a galaxy in the grip of a ruthless Empire. A release date for the series has not yet been announced. Stay tuned to StarWars.com for the latest updates.

We will never see these at Target or Walmart.

Considering these are a "fan channel" exclusive heading to places like EE, BBTS, and other etailers - you're right about these probably not turning up at Target or Walmart. :P
