Solo Toy Launch

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.

Concept Series Update #21

Yakface forum moderator localgotal is back again with another round of Concept Series figures he’s created.  This latest update harkens back to the slimy entourgage of the illustrious Jabba the Hutt.

Check them out, enjoy the pics, and join in the discussion in our forums!  Hey, these would be awesome figures to populate a Sail Barge, right?

Sail Barge Stalling

Hasbro’s crowd funded Sail Barge endeavor could be in trouble as the pace of new backers has stalled significantly over the past week.

Is now the time to panic?  Or is that a bit premature since there’s still 4 weeks left?  Are you planning on fronting payment for one?  Let us know here or in our forums.

Note:  You can check out some other cool Star Wars inspired famous painting alterations here.   Then after that,  Hasbro would like for you to bow before the mighty Jabba the Hutt and fund his pleasure cruiser at HasLab.
