Toy Run Episode 41 – So Long, Princess.

This week on TOY RUN, Criz Bee and Jake remember Carrie Fisher and her numerous Princess Leia action figures that have been released over the past 40 years.  In addition, Jayson Krebsbach from Yakface.com stops by to reflect on collecting Star Wars action figures in 2016.  Together they discuss how Hasbro treated the 3 ¾” and 6” Rogue One and Force Awakens lines.  All this plus the latest in Star Wars action figure news from the last few weeks on Episode 41 of TOY RUN – The Star Wars Action Figure Cast!

Customizer Spotlight: Evilivo

Customizing perfectionist Evilivo has shared several custom updates over the past few months in our forums, including a group of Phase II Clone Troopers that exemplify exactly how Hasbro needs to approach these army builders should they ever bring clone grunts back into circulations in the 3.75″ scale.  Notice how the helmets are not oversized buckets that detract from the figure.  Check out his update after the jump!

Personal Note:  Nothing Hasbro did from 2010-2012 annoyed me more than the oversized bucket helmets they used on the spectacular VC45 mold Clone Trooper body.   Why put such horrible helmets on such a great body?  Hasbro admitted as much with our friends at Jeditemplearchives a few years ago… hopefully someday we will see some sort of definitive 3.75″ box set like what is currently being offered in the 6″ scale (or single carded figures, but I wouldn’t hold one’s breath).

Recent 3.75″ Figure Assortment Cancelled?

A few days ago, Robot Kingdom posted a new case assortment of 3.75″ figures featuring a mix of Rogue One and Rebels characters that included Fenn Rau (Star Wars Rebels), Imperial Death Trooper Specialist (Rogue One), Admiral Raddus (Rogue One)Shoretrooper (Rogue One), Galen Erso (Rogue One) and Lieutenant Sefla (Rogue One). We have intel that this case is being cancelled.

Now, before the requests for Hasbro to be decimated from low orbit (like Scarif Citadel), we have heard that the figures themselves are not cancelled, so it just may be that the case assortment (figures included and number of each) is different than originally set.  More as this develops….

3.75″ Star Wars Rebels Saw Gerrera Coming Soon?

On Episode 62 of The Chris Moyles Show on Radio X Podcast. Forest Whitaker himself refers to seeing 3 figures of his Saw Gerrera character, one from Rogue One (as part of the Jedha Revolt 4 pack), the Funko POP! figure and one from the animated series (Star Wars Rebels) which he misidentifies as The Clone Wars. Hear it for yourself at the 51:50 timestamp.
