JediNews/Hasbro UK Survey

Following on the success of the Canadian Survey that JediNews ran earlier in the year for Hasbro, they are now giving the UK a chance to give Hasbro their feedback too!

Between now and the middle of 19th November, all those people based in the UK have got the opportunity to participate in the JediNews.co.uk Star Wars Online Survey for Hasbro UK and share your feedback on the Star Wars brand in the UK.

Once they’ve gathered all the results they’ll share them with Hasbro UK.

Hasbro Unveils My3D Device for iPhone & iPod

Newswires are reporting this morning that Hasbro has developed a handheld device called My3D that attaches to the two Apple Inc. devices – the iPhone and iPod Touch that promises three-dimensional content that offers a 360-degree experience in gaming, virtual travel experiences and entertainment content. It’s aimed at both children and adults.

With the recent announcement of the complete Star Wars saga being re-released in 3D starting in 2012, I’d say it’s a safe bet that this announcement will lead to some sort of 3D-inspired pack-in and/or downloadable content for the action figure line as 2012 approaches.

Head to Yahoo! Finance for the complete story and after that, head to our forums or facebook page with your thoughts on this new product.

CW28 Clone Pilot Goji

The Yakface Toyguide updates resume today with the addition of Clone Pilot Goji from the Clone Wars Collection.

PROS: A solid figure and serves its purpose in piloting the various starfighters currently available. Great helmet deco.

CONS: Utilizes the “Stone” body, which turns off many collectors due to the downgrade of a few key points of articulation (no ball-jointed wrist, ankles and torso).

Sandtrooper Card Variant

Yakface reader “Shabby Blue” writes in with a very interesting find regarding a new variant surrounding the Vintage Collection Sandtrooper.

There appears to be a running change for the photo on the vintage Sandtrooper card. The original photo was more blurry with its colors faded, but the new version is sharper with deeper colors. It’s most noticable with the deeper blue sky and the sharper whiter looking sandtrooper in the photo. This new “blue sky” version has a newer date stamp on the back of the card, confirming that its the 2nd version with the faded card being the original. It’s also not a one-time factory error because I just saw a 2nd one at Walmart yesterday after finding the first at TRU earlier in the week. I’ve attached a few hi-res photos showing the difference. The new “blue sky” version is on the left and the old faded version is on the right.

Very cool Shabby Blue – thanks for the heads up!
