Q&A with Hasbro

shipyards

Our good friends at Imperialshipyards were able to get some Q&A time with the Hasbro team at New York Comic Con over the weekend.

They are doing the fan community a great service once again as they did their best to get questions that matter to the 3.75″ fans posed to the Hasbro team, with friendly suggestions to make the 3.75″ action figure brand a more appealing product again.

16_candles

From Sandtroopers.com

We are going to light things up with our first phase of our 16th anniversary celebration.  Last year this Rey figure generated quite a stir of controversy when it showed up at retail a little early!  Since then the figure has been a rough find in stores, so thanks to our friends at Hasbro we will be giving away 16 Rey figures to do our part in giving back to the fans.  How do you enter?  Simply comment on this thread with your favorite moment from our 16 years online.  It could be a new photoevent we covered, YouTube video or maybe even a simple news post.  We will begin selecting winners at random starting this weekend, so please help us Make Collecting Great Again!

SDCC 2016: Rogue One Figures To Be Revealed Tomorrow

hasbro_rogueone_mysterybox
Last year’s SDCC was a bit of a letdown as product for The Force Awakens was kept heavily under wraps until Force Friday (and the preceding leaks). This year, it looks like the mystery box won’t be under lock and key as much as Hasbro is set to reveal new products from Rogue One starting tomorrow.
