If you went out hunting for new Star Wars product on Friday, chances are you were pretty underwhelmed by what was on the pegs (i.e. lack thereof).
Personally, I found a few things I wanted after driving around a bit, but it was pretty sad to see just how little retailers seemed to care about having new product out for the April 13 street date (I could not find one single carded figure anywhere – I struggle with calling this as a “launch” at all).
If you did score some good stuff though, we’d love to hear about it and see pics in our forums.
Over the past several months, I’ve been working behind the scenes on a number of new custom figures that will appear in The Enloe Trials photonovel series. Check out the latest customs in our forums, and the most recent chapter in the series can be found here.
If your local Target store starts putting out Solo launch toys early, don’t be surprised to get a “denied” message at the register… except for one group of items that are being allowed for sale.
A new customizer recently joined our forum ranks, and has posted several outstanding creations for your viewing pleasure.

Continue reading Update: Hasbro TVC Sail Barge
For better or worse, Hasbro is going to be supplementing the upcoming TVC line with repacks.
But, this could be a good thing if Hasbro is selective about it and picks great figures where demand still exists. That way carded collectors get their TVC fix, while openers get another shot at certain figures too.
Which figures are good candidates for a repack onto a TVC cardback in your eyes? Share your thoughts after the jump!
