Walgreens Prototype Fett Preorder Update


I received an interesting/unexpected email this morning from Walgreens regarding a Prototype Boba Fett which I had on preorder, but first a little background. This preorder was placed on 7/23 using a credit card which I had to have replaced due to a security breach at a national retail chain. I (and many collectors) was/were originally told that there was no way to update credit card information that was used to place the order(s). Fast forward 5 months and read the email I was sent…

Episode 435: It’s the Yoda Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!


Reviews of Hasbro’s 6-Inch Speeder Bike with Biker Scout and Walgreens exclusive Boba Fett in Prototype Armor, plus store reports and a look at new collectibles online.

Halloween is this week and the costumes and decorations have started to go on sale! On this week’s Star Wars Action News hosts Marjorie and Arnie discuss the hard-to-find collectibles that combine Trick-or-Treating with the Galaxy Far, Far Away!

Also on this week’s show–reviews of two new 6-inch figures! First they look at the Hasbro Black Series Biker Scout with Speeder Bike, the first vehicle in the new, larger scale. Does it live up to the preview shown at SDCC?

And then the first Walgreens exclusive Hasbro Star Wars figure–Boba Fett in Prototype Armor. How does this compare to the original outfit, and is it worth the (bounty) hunt?

UPDATE: ToysRUs.ca has this set up for preorder now with a 10/17 release date.

Update: Jedi-Con 2014 Hasbro Exclusive?


There is another. We have received word that Hasbro will be unveiling an official Jedi-Con 2014 exclusive figure on July 28. And according to this image from JediBusiness, it looks like it may feature (6″?) C-3PO*. What do you think? Leave a comment here or in our forums.

Note: For clarity sake, IF this does include C-3PO, it is probably a simple variant on packaging or an included accessory. It is not meant to imply that 3PO is exclusive to Jedi-Con as we know that it will be available in future Black Series assortments.
