Today’s big reveal with the repacked 6″ scale Han and Greedo with a flimsy cardboard diorama just illustrates for so many of us, how out of touch Hasbro is with the market. We don’t care about cheap cardboard settings for figures, and we sure as heck aren’t looking to spend our money on repacks of pegwarmers just for the sake of different packaging.
For a refreshing look at how Hasbro ought to be managing such display pieces, head on over to Banthaskull.com and check out the amazing work of Boutross77, who does this sort of thing right. Chances are you’ve seen his work before, but today felt like a good time to look back at one of his finer diorama pieces, dubbed the “Hero Booth” from the cantina.
Personal note: My fingers are crossed that someway, somehow, Disney takes over the playset/diorama rights in the 3.75″ scale from Hasbro and starts to deliver on a concept that clearly Hasbro is completely clueless on. This whole post is certainly a “personal note,” so please pardon my passion on this subject.
Today marks the debut of the Holographic Emperor Palpatine Vinylmation figure available at Star Wars Weekends. Limited to 2000 pieces, it retails for $16.95 and sold at Darth’s Mall.
