It’s been quite some time since collectors have had much to get excited about when it comes to Hasbro’s vehicle offerings. But that may change with the new assortment just now starting to hit from the Rebels line. I really don’t think my pics do these things justice, but I do believe these vehicles are worth every penny! For a better look, head on over to the forums!
Our friend Kevin Gawthorpe from VinylmationWorld was in attendance at the weekend’s Imagination Gala at DisneyWorld and has revealed several new Vinylmation and Vinylmation Jr. Star Wars figures for 2014 and 2015. Click on through for some of the details.
With just a couple minutes to spare for a quick toy run to Toys”R”us today, I stumbled upon something not seen in quite some time by my weary eyes – 3.75″ scale vehicles worth picking up! Head on over to the forums for a closer look.
Personal Note: Priced at $22.99 each, these “mid-size” vehicles offer not only all-new sculpts, but are pretty well made too. No, they’re not Hasbro’s finest achievement but for what the retailers are charging, it seems like a very fair deal. These are light years better than all the Jedi Starfighters Hasbro’s been trying to force down our throats for years. I’ll be getting pics posted of them “loose” as soon as I can, and I can already say I want at least two more walkers. BTW, my son loves these.

Last Spring it was announced that the Star Wars canon was taking a new direction. To pave way for the upcoming Episode VII as well as the Rebels TV series the previous Star Wars “Expanded Universe” was reclassified as Star Wars Legends, wiping the slate clean for a new era of Star Wars stories. That begins today with the release of A New Dawn, the Star Wars Rebels tie-in novel by John Jackson Miller.
