Hasbro has sent an update to media outlets regarding the revised availability of their SDCC Exclusives. Originally slated for an August 14 release on HasbroToyShop.com, the indicate that they will now be offered sometime in September.
“Hi Star Wars fans,
Hope you’re having a great weekend! We wanted to reach out to clarify that the availability date for the Hasbro Star Wars SDCC exclusives on Hasbro Toy Shop has changed to September.”
A new installment in The Enloe Trials photonovel series is approaching. For several new previews of the next chapter in the adventures of Rykrof Enloe, click on the image above!
Our friends at Jediinsider.com have posted some great SDCC pics for your viewing pleasure, showing off some of Hasbro’s new offerings… check them out here!
Personal Note: Seems like what we saw today is leaning in the right direction again for the 3.75″ brand. Who can’t be happy with that new 3.75″ scale Wampa? Or Probe Droid? Many of us in our forums have been pushing for those quite a bit the past 2 years, so maybe Hasbro actually IS listening more now (like they indicated in panels and interviews today)?

A lot of squawking has been happening since the Porgs were officially revealed in the behind the scenes video for The Last Jedi at D23. Upon revisiting a few coded listings for products, “IP Beak” is all but officially confirmed to be an Interactive Plush Porg. Nothing earth shattering or previously theorized, but as we approach Force Friday II, and unofficial checklists are being put together, it’s helpful to know what these things are despite their coded aliases.

While reviewing some of the new images in Rebelscum’s SDCC coverage, I noticed what looks like a possible painted “flesh wound” on one of the SDCC samples for Rey. As you can see above, the one on the left (shown today at the Hasbro Breakfast) has a bloody slice/scratch on the right arm, but the figure on the right from the show floor doesn’t – yet there looks to be a sculpted “deformity” sans blood. What do you think – battle-damage or a simple errant paint job? A variant between the SDCC release and the retail version?
A new 6″ Black Series Rey (Resistance) was revealed at today Hasbro Breakfast. The image above comes from Steve Evans, Design Director at Hasbro via Instagram. He also states that starting in Spring 2018, they’ll be implementing a new paint technique.
UPDATE: here are a couple nice shots of TLJ and TFA Rey courtesy of The Wookiee Gunner
Rebelscum captured a great shot of this wet-haired 6″ Black Series Luke Skywalker that supports our rumor from 2015 regarding a possible Trash Compactor scene with that particular Luke. Stay tuned throughout the weekend to see how/if this pans out.
Rebelscum has posted a gorgeous first look at Hasbro’s booth that is sure to “trigger” many a collector with their amazing 1/12 scale dioramas (not for sale). Be sure to check out all the images for some potential hidden surprises that have yet to be revealed.
Images are popping up via social media from the show floor at SDCC and a new image confirms JTA’s rumor of a Rathtar with Bala-Tik figure for the 3.75″ line. Also confirmed is the “Force Link” feature incorporated into the figures, vehicles and creatures.
