The Vintage Collection / Re: Big Items of the Future!
« on: March 5, 2019, 04:26 PM »
Was anything learned at Toy Fair about what HasLab has in store for the next big item, or when that item was going to be announced?

Most of the Haslab spin seemed to indicate Hasbro was waiting for total success on the Barge (ie product shipped to backers) before doing another just for proof of concept purposes.

As for 'what's next', I've seen and heard so many rumors I don't know what to believe anymore - giant size things like a 3.75"-scale Death Star playset or 6"-scale Resistance X-Wing (to go with the TIE), all the way down to some sort of exclusive figures that don't stand a shot at retail - Cliegg Lars, background cantina aliens like Tzizvvt, or even concept stuff like Heater/Jabba, etc.

I'm selfishly hoping they stick to 3.75" Star Wars, but it would not surprise me if the next one involved 6" Star Wars or another line entirely (Marvel, GI Joe, etc).

Here was the original info that we got with the Round One voting instructions -

The second round of voting will begin on Monday, February 25th, at Hasbro Pulse.  Look for more details soon!

But obviously that hasn't happened yet...  I sent an email yesterday asking for updated info but haven't heard anything back from Hasbro PR.

Professor without knowing precisely the cause, would you say its time for our viewers to crack open each others skulls and feast on the goo inside?

Any brick and mortar store locations?

It is a "shared fan exclusive" so not at big retail like Target or Walmart, but maybe someplace like GameStop will eventually have them.

Sounds like we're all in the same boat for better or worse...

I still don't have anything in my FedEx delivery manger account... :(

If only there had been a major toy media event recently where they could have revealed this.  ::)

It's been taken down now from the Hasbro.com site with the usual "please take it down" emails from the PR company going around.  It sounds like it was supposed to be a SW Celebration reveal in April that someone accidentally made public on the Hasbro site.

Phruby, no one can see the pictures you post from forums.wdwmagic.com.

Those picture end with "-jpg.number" at the end - they do not work with the [img] tag.

Agreed with your sentiments on the Battle Droid.  I just can't figure out where the accessory goes.... Anyone?

You mean the antenna?  You can pose him with either the backpack or the antenna -

Still no news, Jeff?

Nothing I can share.  Just a few things they had to work out before launching round two.

What the terms don’t mention is if you get to opt out of the premium service for 2020 before they charge your credit card that $50 for the new year.

According to the new FAQ on Pulse Premium that went up today, there is no auto-enroll for 2020 -

"Hasbro Pulse Premium does not have an auto-renew policy. Users will have to re-enroll in 2020 to be part of the program"

Was any more said about these at Toy Fair?

No.  There were some rumors that some overseas retailers have them on their product lists but no one has started taking any pre-orders or anything yet.

There was an unidentified R2-D2 on the shelf with the other TVC figures.

That is VC149 R2-D2 that they announced at 2018 MCM Comic-Con London.  Pretty basic R2 for the Vintage Collection $13 price tag sadly.

Wait what?  Hoth soldier is a troop builder and possibly one of the greatest figure designs ever.

Just an FYI - when tabulating the votes, they were split across two separate types of Hoth Dude - Hoth vs Echo Base. 

#2 - Hoth Rebel Soldier/Trooper = this guy:


#21 - Echo Base Rebel Soldier/Trooper = this guy:
