Update: Rumor Report: New Solo Playset(s) Coming

After some research on new intel gathered recently, there appears to be at least one new playset from Solo: A Star Wars Story hitting shelves soon. Details are sketchy (i.e. blurry) but based on the terrain, it looks to be Vandor themed with some sort of faux conveyex feature. It includes 1 figure (possibly Vandor Han or Chewie – both of which were revealed in the Force Link app update) and is priced at $44.99.

Custom Playsets for Sale

Custom playset master EMPIRE has posted some awesome new 3.75″ custom playsets that can be purchased by clicking here.

Personal Note:  I’ve purchased a number of items from him over the past few years and have always been amazed by the quality and durability.  If you have been on the fence about these, I am confident that you won’t be disappointed if you add some of these items to your collection! 

Solo “Flagship Set” UPC and DPCI Added

BrickSeek has added a new UPC and DPCI for the upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story Flagship/Playset with (3.75″) figure coming in April from Hasbro. The MSRP is $99.99. We added this to the growing Master List of UPCs/DPCIs and Walmart SKUs for 2018.

UPDATE: Pure speculation on my part but the “flagship” may be a prototype star destroyer as we revealed in this post regarding Hot Wheels Starship coming out for Solo.

How Would You Design a 3.75″ Hasbro Death Star?

Not suggesting that it’s going to actually happen… (or am I?), but if Hasbro were to finally get the ball rolling with a serious Death Star playset in the 3.75″ scale, how would you design it?  And if it were legitimately awesome, how much would you be willing to shell out for something truly epic that would be the centerpiece of any 3.75″ Star Wars collection?

For reference, there have been some really awesome custom playsets made by some very talented fans, the very cool Micro Collection Death Star World back in the vintage days (could be a great design to upscale in 3.75″) and of course you can pretty much build your own nowadays with the wonderful products at GTP-Toys.

But, back to the original question – what kind of format would you like to see?  What’s your budget (if done with care and detail – not talking about cardboard playsets)?  Or has Hasbro wasted the opportunity after sitting on their hands for over two decades now on this front?  Should Disney just do it themselves, and make expansion sets available to enable fans to recreate scenes from ANH, ROTJ, Rogue One, etc?

Personal Note:  Kudos to the guys at Jeditemplearchives for their article on this subject today.  This is a subject that is very dear to me in the hobby, and something that hopefully Hasbro delivers on sooner rather than later – and if not, I’d be 100% in favor of Disney just doing it themselves.  None of us are getting younger.  This dream needs to come true.  If Hasbro can’t figure it out, Disney is more than capable of doing this, and probably at a much better price than Hasbro would be able to.
