Hasbro To Phase Out Plastic from Packaging By 2022

Hasbro has issued a press release stating that by 2022, they plan to phase out plastic elements like polybags, elastic bands, shrink wrap, window sheets and blister packs.  The company’s ambition is to eliminate virtually all plastic in packaging for new products by the end of 2022.

Rumor Report: Force Friday TBS Wave 1 Breakdown

Here we go. We have determined the figure breakdown for wave 1 of 6” Black Series headed for retailers on October 4 for Triple Force Friday. There has been a list floating around based on or original reports that has been partially correct but we’re now certain of its contents (one of each as follow):

Rey with D-O, Kylo Ren, Sith Trooper, First Order Stormtrooper, Cal Kestis, Second Sister Inquisitor,  The Mandalorian and a Jawa.

That last one, the Jawa ( “LA Blinky” on our list from The Mandalorian) is said to be different than the previous Jawa as it may be gray in color.
