Great Hasbro Booth Images

Our friends at Jediinsider.com have posted some great SDCC pics for your viewing pleasure, showing off some of Hasbro’s new offerings… check them out here!

Personal Note:  Seems like what we saw today is leaning in the right direction again for the 3.75″ brand.  Who can’t be happy with that new 3.75″ scale Wampa?  Or Probe Droid?  Many of us in our forums have been pushing for those quite a bit the past 2 years, so maybe Hasbro actually IS listening more now (like they indicated in panels and interviews today)?

Huge Restock at SAGA TOYS

SAGA TOYS, located just south of St. Louis off Highway 55, has restocked with a huge supply of Legacy era Star Wars items.  If you’re ever in the St. Louis area, I highly suggest finding some time to check out their showroom of Star Wars, GI JOE, Transformers and various other toy lines.

If you have any questions please ask in our forums or check out their Facebook page.

3.75″ Diorama Heaven

If you placed a 3.75″ space walls order with GTP-Toys, then be on the lookout as these are starting to show up on doorsteps this weekend!

The quality is amazing… and the drought of waiting for over TWO DECADES for something like this for our Star Wars action figures is finally over!

Head on over to the forums to check out a few pics I snapped with my phone today after putting together a quick setup, by clicking here!  

Customizer Spotlight: Evilivo

Tonight we spotlight the amazing custom work of expert customizer Evilivo, who has perfected Hasbro’s 3.75″ K-2SO by giving it a major upgrade in articulation (not to mention an enhanced paint job).

Hopefully we’ll see something along these lines in the Spring with the return of The Vintage Collection… until then (or if Hasbro disappoints), check out the tutorial he created so you can make your own after the jump!

Five Below Finds

The fact that Hasbro’s 5poa TFA figures are showing up at Five Below stores isn’t “new” information, but just how many of these figures never made it to primary retail outlets is amazing.

Hasbro just seems unable to get their product on a consistent distribution flow to big box retailers anymore – which of course that isn’t new information either!

But – if you are looking for some decent 5poa figures for about $5 each, and have a Five Below store in your area… well, you know the drill.

Star Wars Girl Power

Reports are coming in that some retailers, such as Target are receiving solid cases of the 6″ 40th Anniversary Princess Leia figure, such as the image above provided by forum member dubsack.  This also appears to be happening at some Toys”R”us stores.

Now, we’re not opposed to this great figure of our favorite princess being in good supply, but solid cases of anything in this scale at mass retail seems like it could cause problems, unless we’re talking Stormtroopers or Royal Guards (even that would be risky).
