Action Fleet news

Quote:
Action Fleet Heads To Dry Dock
Wed, Jul 23, 03 06:43:34 PM EDT

After having returned from a two-year hiatus, Hasbro's Action Fleet line has once again been put on hold. Failing to meet minimum quantity requirements from major retailers, Hasbro was left with no choice than to bring the line to a screeching halt. As a result several of the vehicles previously announced for later this year will in fact not be released, and those holding pre-orders for upcoming waves should expect cancellation notices soon. We’re awaiting confirmation from Hasbro on the final wave of Action Fleet vehicles for this year, but it was suggested in San Diego that may well be the recently shipped Republic Gunship wave. The good news is; tentative plans are in place to bring the line back in 2005 with renewed interest surrounding the release of Episode III. At that time, it was suggested, Hasbro is looking very hard at the possibility of adding mini-figures back into the line (something Action Fleet fans have been begging for since the line made its comeback last year). As we are still quite a ways away from 2005 and Episode III, many plans can change but it was clear in talking with Hasbro representatives at Comic Con that there is a desire to continue bringing these toys to the fans and collectors that want them. We’ll continue to follow the Action Fleet situation and bring you updates as new information develops.

I don't know how many people here collect Action Fleet besides me... but I figured I post it anyways. I collect them, and have a bunch of them... this is really dissapointing.

Can we join together and say: "Death to Hasbro"

Yea, I think I got lucky. I told myself, I'd be on top of the game and get them right when they came out and preorder, ect. So I was able to get it. Now they go and do this crap....

Heh, maybe they're trying to use galoob's name to sell their products. Back when the SE OT was out Galoob did great with the Action Fleets.

Kicking up this old thread!

Hasbro did buy out Galoob a few years back

Hasbro never bought Kenner out. They have always been one and the same company. Hasbro/ Kenner.

Kenner was put on SW toys, while Hasbro was always used on GI Joes. I believe SW Toys started getting the Hasbro name on it with the TPM wave. Kenner hasn't been put on anything since... then I guess.

And Hasbro doesn't use Galoob's name, but does indeed put 'Micro Machines' on there if I'm not mistaken.

And Z, keep a lid on all stuff I say. Whether it be Project Hasbro or that other thing I let slip in a convo between you and Taters last night

Hey Phreak, may I come as the bearer of good news?

Quote:
Originally quoted by Rebel Scum's Mark
The latest issue of the French Star Wars Fan Club magazine features images of what should have been the upcoming Action Fleet Star Destroyer and Death Star. While at San Diego Hasbro announced the Action Fleet line was on hiatus, the magazine states these and the concept art A-wing are slated to be released at the end of the year. Has something changed with the Action Fleet line, or is this simply out dated information? We have a call into Hasbro and hope to have this cleared up soon.


Hope the line makes a comeback for ya
