Love the fake aged/distressed box.  It would be amazing if they tried something like this for the Sears Cantina Set. :P

Other Toy Lines / Zica Toys 3.75" Sectaurs Figure Line
« on: May 16, 2017, 11:36 PM »
I've neglected starting a thread for this one, but thought it was time.  Back in April, Zica Toys announced plans for a kickstarter to relaunch Coleco toy line Sectaurs as a 4" figure line.

So far they have announced two figures (out of ten planned for the kickstarter) - Dargon and General Spidrax.  Click the thumbnails below for bigger pics:

No bugs are planned for Wave 1, but they are included in the Wave 2 plans if the kickstarter does well enough to justify doing a wave 2.

As a nerd who had a whole bunch of the original line, I'll be keeping an eye on this one...

The Vintage Collection / 2017 Hasbro Star Wars Fan Figure Vote
« on: April 15, 2017, 09:59 PM »
The Vintage Collection is coming back in Spring 2018 and Hasbro is looking to the fans to help select a character to join it!  The first round of voting kicks off today and runs through Wednesday, April 19th.

To Vote at JediDefender:
Send an email to with 2017 Hasbro Fan Figure Vote in the subject line and your character selection and your full name (first and last) in the body of the email.  Limit ONE (1) character vote per email address.  Fraudulent votes will be discarded.  Voting will close on 11:38pm ET on Wednesday, April 19th.

Any characters from the Star Wars Rebels or Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated series will be sculpted in the realistic style (like the current Black Series lines).

The results of the first round will be tabulated and sent to Hasbro on Friday, April 21st.  The top 6 picks from each site will be used to create the entrants of a final poll at, which will take place April 26th through April 30th. The winner will be announced at a later date.

Please visit Star for the full list of fan sites participating in Round One.

Finally, feel free to use this thread to lobby for your choice – you’ve got a few days to vote, so think it over and debate amongst your friends here at JD.  This is a great chance for us to get a long time JediDefender Wishlist figure (like Cliegg Lars, Sim Aloo, Tonnkia Sisters, etc) and it would be shame to waste it on some one-off video game character or yet ANOTHER Mara Jade figure when there are so many deserving obscure OT characters to chose!  ;)

More details soon, but just announced at the Hasbro Panel at Star Wars Celebration -

The Vintage Collection is returning in Spring 2018; available at most major retailers and on!  They showed a carded sample Rey to kick things off.

There is also a Fan Poll to select a character to add to the 3.75" Vintage Collection - look for more details on JediDefender's participation in that poll later tonight!

Rumors of a SDCC Landspeeder are tru, but it's not in a Vintage Kenner box as speculated... 

This version has a better deco (more weathering) and engine parts -

SDCC exclusive version with a ton of extra accessories and deluxe packaging:

The Black Series 6" Figures / Star Wars Celebration Orlando 2017
« on: April 14, 2017, 01:13 AM »
I have to admit, it's only one day in and we've already had a few more surprises than the last few shows combined it seems like - especially Disney kicking out piles and piles of new droids.

Today was the Hasbro Designer panel, but I didn't see too much coverage of it.  Sounds like it was more about looking back at 40 years of Kenner/Hasbro Star Wars and talking designers favorite items and such with Mark Boudreaux and some others.  Hope some video of that gets posted eventually as I'd like to watch it.

The main Hasbro panel takes place on Saturday...

Hasbro Star Wars
April 15, 2017, 5:30 PM - 6:30 PM (ET)
Location: Behind-The-Scenes Stage - W304, 3rd Floor

Join members of the Hasbro team as they discuss the popular Hasbro Star Wars line. Attendees will get an in-depth look at Hasbro’s latest action figure offerings. Word on the Holonet is there may also be a few surprises, including a special product reveal.  From Hasbro: Steve Evans, Design Director, Star Wars; Joe Ninivaggi, Director, Brand Strategy and Marketing; Aditi Raturi, Global Brand Manager, Marketing & Development; Bill Rawley - Product Design Manager; Steve Bono - Senior Design Manager, Star Wars; Mark Boudreaux, Senior Principal Designer, Star Wars.

I know nothing about this other than it was revealed at the Disney panel today - I guess the smaller shadow is supposed to be a Droid Factory Power Droid sculpt.

If this turns out to be as nice as the Disney Starspeeder Playset did, I'll plunk down the cash for it without blinking.

And finally, single-carded C1-10P "Chopper" coming to SW Celebration and the Disney Parks...  love his accessories, especially the rolling 3rd leg/wheel.

R-3D0 = Confirmed, but as a single card release.
