You can view the images on their site and if you still need to place a preorder head on over to Hasbrolab.com. At the moment there are only 2896 preorders and we are still short 2104 preorders to reach the 5000 required to get this vehicle made.Add a comment
Received Star Wars: Episode VIII The Last Jedi Ultimate Collector’s Edition 4K Combo Pack to review courtesy of Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment's PR. As in the past the review is about the quality of the video and audio and the contents included in this Ultimate Collector’s Edition 4K Combo Pack. We do not discus the storyline of this movie at all. We will try and keep this short and direct to the point.
I am really glad that Disney has embraced the 4K Ultra HD format and hopefully we will see past Star Wars movies remastered and released along with the continuation of future movies.
The Last Jedi 4K Ultra HD Disc is Disney's first Home Release to use both Dolby Vision HDR and Dolby Atmos. The industry standard is currently HDR10 (High Dynamic Range), but Dolby Vision HDR is making its way to more and more 4K TVs and Players. Some manufactures offer firmware updates to implement Dolby Vision HDR on past products, so be sure to check your 4K TVs and Players for updates.Add a comment

Was looking through my Facebook News Feed this morning and came across a article from LinkedIn stating that Kay Bee Toys will make a return this year (before Christmas) courtesy of Strategic Marks, LLC.
"As some of you know, our company Strategic Marks, LLC has acquired KB-Toys about a year ago. During that period, we had been working on several models to resurrect the "Great American Toy Store" and to make sure the stores can compete with Toys R Us, other brick and mortar stores as well as on-line retail. Well, with the demise of Toys R Us, this week, we have now accelerated our business plan and hope to have our stores up and running before Christmas. We're in discussions with many of the toy manufactures, as we try to find out the best way to support them and the 20% loss of the US toy market due to the Toys R Us liquidation. We believe we will have the infrastructure in-place and [hopefully] save the toy industry."Add a comment

Dark Side Toys is working with HasLab to bring The Vintage Collection's Jabba's Sail Barge to the UK and Europe. All preorders will go towards the 5000 preorder goal required for Hasbro to produce this vehicle. For all the details visit Darksdietoys.co.uk and get your preorders in.
Really glad this company stepped up to bring this vehicle to the fans across the pond. I think there is a very good chance we will see this actually get made with preorders from USA, Canada, UK, and Europe.
If your in the US or Canada you can still place preorders at Hasbrolab.com.

“Since Jabba’s Sail Barge is now more than halfway to reaching its goal, we’d love to say thank you for the amazing support behind this HasLab initiative by moving forward with the reveal of another exciting tidbit! Please see the attached exclusive image of Hasbro’s own Mark Boudreaux holding the Barge’s white box mock-up for scale.”
If this item does make it to production, I assume they will double box the vehicle at the factory for shipping purposes, but I hope they go the extra mile and make sure the cardboard is extra thick since we all know how UPS, Fedex, and USPS handles large boxes with care lol.
As of this post there are currently 2645 preorders sold and we have a long way to go to reach the required 5000 preorders. So if your considering this item, please visit Hasbrolab.com and get your preorders in before the 19 day deadline expires.Add a comment
As you more then likely have noticed for the past few weeks, the website has been changed around. I have reconfigured, re-coded, and redesigned everything from the ground up to make it more user friendly across all devices.
The redesign is almost complete, just have a few more days converting over the old published Toy Pages to the new format which will look like this pretty much.
After that, there will be a few tweaks here and there (fonts, graphics, etc) and I will finally get back to HD Photography.
Thanks for your patience.Add a comment
My local Walmart is in the process of implementing a new Star Wars Toy Planogram which finally includes their Exclusive The Black Series Kylo Ren Throne Room figure set. Per the Toy Department Employee, they should start to receive this item any day now. You can check out the new Planogram above.
If your in need be sure to check Walmart.com and use their "Pickup In Store" tool to see if you local stores received any stock.Add a comment

For those into the Forces of Destiny Dolls, was just surfing Walmart.com and noticed they have the Rey of Jakku and Kylo Ren 2-Pack in stock and ready to ship as of this post. These are sold and shipped by Walmart. Price is $37.50 each.
This set is scheduled to hit most retailers this month, so you may be able to find these at your local stores eventually as well.Add a comment

Preorders for HasLab's The Vintage Collection Jabba's Sail Barge seem not to be performing as most had predicted. There is only 2468 preorders (as of this post) with 25 days to go. That means on average there would have to be 101.3 new preorders per day for the next 25 days to reach the 5000 goal. Now I am a optimistic person, but I am sorry to say I don't see this happening unless this campaign is opened Worldwide or if Hasbro decides to make this vehicle even if the 5000 preorder goal is not met. After all they do have about $1,234,000 in preorders, but unless you work for Hasbro its not known their actual cost to tool and manufacture this vehicle, so it may not be worth it to them.
Over the years the collector community claimed they wanted this vehicle and Hasbro would never step up until now to produce it, so most people expected the 5000 preorder goal to be reached very quickly, but I have a feeling that the $500 price tag played a huge role in people not placing preorders. Thats a big chunk of change for most people.
Now hopefully I am wrong and we will see a last minute Hail Mary Pass and this vehicle will get made. Guess we will see in 25 days (fingers crossed).
If you would like to place a preorder visit the HasLab website and help get this vehicle made.

Received some more Press info from Lucasfilm's PR about the Home Release of The Last Jedi. Most of the info is known, but thought I would mention for the Audio and Videophiles (like myself) that this will be Disney's First 4K Ultra HD Disc in both Dolby Vision HDR and Dolby Atmos immersive audio.
"The next action-packed chapter of the Star Wars saga – Star Wars: The Last Jedi – welcomes the return of original characters as well as in-depth looks of the saga's newest members. This release will include a feature-length documentary from Director Rian Johnson that takes fans on an intimate journey into the creation of Lucasfilm's Star Wars: The Last Jedi. The release will also include two exclusive scenes featuring Andy Serkis as Snoke prior to his digital makeover, scene breakdowns, deleted scenes, audio commentary and more. Families can bring the next chapter of Star Wars home digitally in HD and 4K Ultra HD and via Movies Anywhere March 13 and on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray and Blu-ray disc March 27. This release will mark Disney's first title available on 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray disc in both Dolby Vision™ HDR and Dolby Atmos® immersive audio, delivering consumers a transformative viewing experience."Add a comment
I just noticed that Target.com has The Last Jedi Battle on Crait 3.75-Inch 4-Pack in stock and ready to ship. Price is $23.74 at the moment (normal price $24.99). Get them while you can and remember you heard it here first.Add a comment
First off here is a update on Disney's TOYBOX Luke Skywalker figure. He was released as a Disney Parks Exclusive last week (thats why you are seeing reports of him being found at Disney World / Land), but will not remain a Parks Exclusive and will hit ShopDisney.com and your local Disney Stores on 3/27/18.
As for the TOYBOX Boba Fett figure he will be released on 3/27/18 as well and will be available to purchase at your local Disney Stores and at ShopDisney.com.
This info is what I am being told directly from Disney and the release dates are subject to change.Add a comment
