Collector Kyle B. writes in with an update regarding the non-functional Wampa and Luke set from the Force Link 2.0 line. Per a conversation with Hasbro’s customer help department, this issue will be addressed in the next update, remedying the annoying “Firmware Update Required” utterance the Wampa current triggers.
Hasbro’s app team has rolled out another update of the Force Link 2 app. This latest build addresses “minor bugs and improvements” and “updated content”, but as one of the worst product Hasbro’s ever released in terms of end-user operability, does anyone care?
