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!
The current Yakfinities Customizing Challenge continues through the end of March, and once again, we’ve seen a great number of custom figures created.
Whether you’re a crafty veteran or this is your first crack at customizing, we welcome all of our readers to try their hand at Yakfinities #51 – Space Pirates!

Despite us not been able to physically attend Toy Fair (again) this year, we will be providing coverage of the day’s announcement right here for all you social media nonconformists. We will be aggregating news from multiple source to keep you all up to date.
Hasbro and 3D Systems (the same company that acquired Gentle Giant in January) have announced a partnership to co-develop and commercialize 3D printers in order to deliver new immersive, creative play experiences for children. Depending on how this joint venture is executed, it looks like we may have an actual avenue in producing toys we want. Next stop, replicators a la Star Trek?
Read on for the full press release.
Gentle Giant has also announced their next Jumbo Kenner figure pre-order: Luke Skywalker (Bespin Fatigues).
Gentle Giant has announced their first Star Wars Rebel item with their Inquisitor Maquette. It is available now for pre-order at $129.00
