Newsarama received confirmation today from Hasbro’s PR firm that the Hera and Sabine figures will indeed be making their action figure debut at SDCC this July. Many collectors and fans of the recently revealed female characters have been wondering why they absent from the rest of the figures (Kanan, Ezra, Zeb, Chopper, Stormtrooper, Inquisitor, Agent Kallus) and vehicles presented at Toy Fair.
Sideshow Collectibles has updated with details for their upcoming Infantry Battle Droids set (includes 2 uniquely painted battle droids) and the Geonosis Battle Droid Commander set that features a light-up communication podium and a Count Dooku hologram. Pre-orders for each set start Thursday and they are priced at $129.99 each.

Marjorie and Arnie recap the Hasbro presentation kicking of New York’s Toy Fair International 2014!
Anyone who knows me at all in this hobby knows that I’ve been promoting for Hasbro to address what I feel is a major issue with their Phase 2 clone troopers… oversized buckets… including creating a tutorial for customizers, if they so choose to modify their figures.
After a few Q&A’s with Hasbro, with them indicating that they are unaware of aesthetic issues, our friend Paul at Jedi Temple Archives brought with him to Toy Fair a custom clone trooper I assembled, alongside one of Hasbro’s stock figures and showed Derryl DePriest the size discrepancy… and Derryl’s reaction is one that you should read… this could mean great things on the horizon if you’re unhappy with the clone helmets… so head on over to Jedi Temple Archives for the report!
