Toy Fair: Hasbro Coverage

I only collect Hasbro so this is what I'm looking at but for you who get other things, here's a better link.

Anyhow, here's the Hasbro link. Check out the vintage carded figures and the 12" vintage boxed ones. The 'Original Trilogy' guys are mostly recarded save for the new Dagobah and Cloud City guys so I'll be taking a pass. These cards should replace the Saga ones; they're so much better looking! They'e better than the PotF2 ones!!!

I can't wait, put FAH on hold for now until I see the other crap they're making later in the year



Like to read? Like fantasy stories? Like doing people you've never met in person favors? Then read and review my original movie screenplay! You will, you must. It is your destiny....

Check out the best shots of all of my collections along with some of my better attempts at artwork here.

the obi wan, luke, han, and leia from the new original trilogy look new, but there are a ton of repacks which sucks. the bespin and dagobah waves look great but the luke's face looks a little wierd upside down like that. I hope they unveil more later in the show, and have a Q & A later. Lookin pretty good so far hasbro.

and re-releasing the stormtrooper and scout trooper are smart choices IMO.

Maybe FAH should make it so nobody buys a single recarded one and all the new figures and resculpts sell out. That'd tell them something

Nah, despite the recarded figured, I'm really excited for this set.

I went to Wal mart, saw a kid coming, quickly grabbed the Star Wars stuff and ran.

Amen to that!

Or, we could just kill the 5 year olds.

I don't mind the Falcon at all.

But they just made a TIE. A better one than that too! That is the original TIE and X-Wing molds they released in '77 and '95. Correct me if I'm wrong, but they've upgraded those for authenticity and scale, no?

They've been doing that since they started making Star Wars.
