Based on the our report from yesterday regarding the new Hero Series product names (Zeus and Vesta) found online, there is speculation/coincidence that these may be the first indicators that products for the untitled Han Solo movie could rely on Greek/Roman mythology to mask the character names from the film. Thoughts?
After some internet scouring today, I found coded info (names/UPCs/SKUs) for 3 more 12″ Hero Series figures to be released beyond the assortment that includes Yoda and Kylo Ren. Click on through for the info.
We have received additional details, confirmations and some new reveals for a list of Target DPCIs that we shared back on July 2 (you can see the original article here). Click on through for the new info.
JediBusiness reports that that 3.75″ Saga 7pk and 12″ Rogue One 6pk have started hitting Target stores.

Thanks to TargetMaster for the images.
Last week we posted about Hasbro’s “value” line of 6″ figures which are essentially a middle ground between the traditional 3.75″ 5 POA action figures and the 12″ Hero Series line. Toys”R”Us Hong Kong has a link for all of these figures revealing others in the assortment including Darth Vader, Kylo Ren, First Order Stormtrooper and First Order Snowtrooper.
Back in February, we speculated that Hasbro may start up another 6″ scale of limited articulation figures similar to the 12″ Hero Series. It looks like that has indeed come to pass as a new image out of Hong Kong shows a new Finn figure. Hasbro has done this with their Marvel line as well with the figures sold through dollar stores and the like. No word yet as to US availability.
Idle Hands has posted an article and gallery of Hasbro’s Marvel product slated to be showcased at Toy Fair 2015 next week. Within the items is a new line of figures similar to Titan Heroes but in a smaller 6″ scale – with only 3-4 POA. Read on for what this may mean for the Star Wars brand.
I happened to notice this variation today whilst roaming the aisles at Target. The Exclusive Hero Series Heroes and Villains 6 pack of figures now features a sticker on the front indicating the source material for the three non-Star Wars Rebels figures. Click the image above for a closer look – if you care about such triviality.
The Hero Series X-Wing that Hasbro thought would inspire kids is now on clearance at Target, just two weeks before Christmas. If you want this item, chance are it will be able to be had for less than one Andrew Jackson bill soon.
