It Is Just a Flesh Wound (or is it?)

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?

Rumor Report: Interactive Plans for The Last Jedi Figures?

Rebelscum has posted a rumor regarding possible features/interactivity built into the new Hasbro figures for The Last Jedi. If you’re old enough to remember CommTech chips, the “Force Link Bracelet” sounds a bit familiar. Head on over to Rebelscum for the details.

UPDATE: After some independent research, it looks like the vehicles will also be compatible with this “Force Link” technology.

6″ C-3PO Resistance Base Variant

It was something we mentioned in our initial review of this figure and now it looks like Hasbro has addressed the oversight as they have issued a variant to the 6″ Black Series C-3PO (Resistance Base) figure. Instead of the cheap looking plain red arm, they have now given it a proper, screen accurate deco. I’ll definitely be picking this version up.

Thanks to Rebelscum for their report.

TIE Striker: A Closer Look

Rebelscum forum member Nighthawk has posted some photos that reveal more of what we can expect with Hasbro’s new TIE Striker.

It appears the NERF features are removable, which should bring a collective sigh of relief to many buyers.  And it looks like the wings may be comprised of a sturdier plastic than we saw with the TFA TIE Fighters.

5POA aside, maybe things are looking better for the actual quality of toys coming this Fall?  Check out more pics as he continues to update with more details by clicking here.

New U-wing and TIE Striker Images Clarify NERF Features

uwing_striker_nerf

Rebelscum forum member “Nighthawk” has posted new images from the packaging for Hasbro’s Rogue One U-Wing and TIE Striker vehicles that shed light on the NERF launching features of both fighters. It appears that the launcher for the U-wing is retractable (not removable) and the TIE’s is a fixed position cannon. These were found at retail in Canada ($59.99-$69.99).

Also, try to pick which eye to look at when staring at the Cassian Andor figure. :/

Toyguide Update: Disney Infinity Darth Vader

It looks like we’re not the only ones who are fans of these figures as Rebelscum has started their own series of Photo Archive updates the week for the Disney Infinity 3.0: Star Wars line.

We launch our own run of updates, working backward, starting with the recent “Rise of the Empire” release figure: Darth Vader. Look for additional characters to be added to our toyguide all weekend long.

Head to the toyguide for the full image gallery and to judge for yourself whether this figure is worth adding to your collection.

6″ Hero Series for The Force Awakens Confirmed

TFA_6Hero_series

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.
