Flyguy and Yakface return this week to breakdown the exciting new product reveals from this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. Brands covered include Hasbro, Hot Toys, Sideshow, Kotobukiya, Hot Wheels and more on Episode 102 of The Realm Recap.
On this episode of “The Cargo Hold,” Jayson, Corey, and Chris are once again joined by Chris K of “The Bad Motivator” and “First Order Transmissions.” We break down all the product reveals from San Diego Comic-Con 2016, including:
- Hasbro The Black Series, Rebels, Rogue One, and The Force Awakens reveals
- An exclusive interview with Hasbro
- The latest in Hot Toys’ Star Wars offerings
- SDCC Funko POP! exclusives
- And more!
Several readers have been asking “when will HasbroToyShop open orders for the 6″ Black Series Exclusives from SDCC 2016?” It is a valid question considering Hasbro’s “go live” times have had a track record of unpredictability. Click on through for our breakdown* of the previous five (2001-2015) SDCC exclusives.
Tomorrow, HasbroToyShop will be announcing the go-live date for the SDCC Exclusive Obi-Wan Kenobi, Kylo Ren and Jyn Erso 6″ Black Series figures.
UPDATE: Although subject to change, HasbroToyShop is planning on having the Convention Exclusives available to order on Tuesday, August 9th. The product will be located in the “EXCLUSIVES” category. No phone orders will be accepted. All Convention Exclusives are excluded from any promotions and discounts.
Hasbro has unveiled 5 new 6″ Black Series figures at today’s SDCC panel. They are:
Emperor’s Royal Guard
and the Fans’ Choice winner was Jaina Solo
UPDATE: Added general release Obi-Wan “Ben” Kenobi”
Last year’s SDCC was a bit of a letdown as product for The Force Awakens was kept heavily under wraps until Force Friday (and the preceding leaks). This year, it looks like the mystery box won’t be under lock and key as much as Hasbro is set to reveal new products from Rogue One starting tomorrow.

No, it’s not a synopsis for a Season 3 episode of Star Wars Rebels, Arnie from Star Wars Action News has posted word that Hasbro is interesting in getting the sought after 6″ Black Series Darth Maul and X-wing Pilot Luke Skywalker back to retail.
You can see Arnie’s exact quote on their Facebook page.
