The Black Series Luke Skywalker #05 figure has been added to our HD Photo Gallery today. This figure turned out better then I expected. The sculpt looks great, I know some people are not fans of the Head, but it does not look that bad. Luke has 12 points of articulation which are Head, Shoulders, Elbows, Wrists, Waist, Hips, and Knees. He includes a Blaster Pistol, Medal of Honor, Lightsaber, and Saber Hilt. Enjoy all the new HD Pictures.
We have posted some preview photos of The Black Series Card Backs on our Facebook Page, for those that want to check them out. Remember Facebook compresses photos, so these images will look much better on our website when they get posted.
Since I already had my camera setup to take packaged shots, I went ahead and photographed the card fronts of The Black Series 3 3/4 figures. There is 8 figures in this first wave, but I was not able to obtain a #01 Padme figure as of yet. But should have one by the end of the week hopefully. These new photos have been uploaded to the figure's pages. Also I have updated all the info such as UPC numbers and etc. I will start to work on loose photos soon.
Added to our HD Photo Gallery this evening are some boxed preview photos of the 2013 Black Series 6-Inch figures. In this first wave you have #01 Luke Skywalker, #02 Darth Maul, #03 Sandtrooper, and #04 R2-D2. Loose photos will be added soon.

"The series is set between the events of Episode III and IV -- an era spanning almost two decades never-before explored on-screen. It takes place in a time where the Empire is securing its grip on the galaxy and hunting down the last of the Jedi Knights as a fledgling rebellion against the Empire is taking shape. Star Wars Rebels will be produced by Lucasfilm Animation, featuring many of the key talents that made Star Wars: The Clone Wars".

Lots of reports of fellow collectors finding The Black Series at their local Toys R Us Stores yesterday and today. So far I have receiced emails from California, Arizona, Lousiana, North and South Texas. I can confirm South Texas as well, as I found most of these figures today. I missed out on the Padme figure, but found everything else. Also would like to mention that Toys R Us has a BOGO 50% off sale as of right now.
From all the reports received, it seems like each store is only getting 1 case of 3 3/4 and 6-Inch figures at this time. Don't worry though, these will be every where soon. Happy Hunting!
Today I have added the 2013 Saga Legends 12-Inch Darth Vader figure to our HD Photo Gallery. I have to say this figure is not half bad. I actually like it. Vader has 7 points of articulation which are Head, Shoulders, Hips, and Wrists. The sculpt looks fairly good and he actually has a cloth cape. The only accessory included is a Lightsaber Blade. Enjoy all the new photos!

I had a couple of our International readers email me asking if the Amazon Exclusive Legacy Collection Droid Factory 6-Pack would be available Worldwide, so I asked Hasbro while I was at the 2013 SDCC and they did not know as of then and they said they would get back to me.
Well today I heard back from Hasbro and I am sorry to say to our International readers, but Hasbro stated that this will be a USA Exclusive only.
Found the 2013 Saga Legends Anakin to Darth Vader 12-Inch figure today at my local Toys R Us here in Texas. I have added some boxed preview images to our HD Photo Gallery. Kids will more then likely love this toy and most collectors will hate it. Still no signs of The Black Series.
Hurry get them while you can! These exclusives went up for sale at about 2:30 CDT. Click on through.
Update: In about 5 minutes, Boba Fett and Han Solo in Carbonite sold out. Angry Birds set still in stock as of 2:50pm CDT.
Just got back home from the 2013 SDCC and started to go through my luggage and noticed I grabbed a HasbroToyShop.com order form, so I thought I would post it for those that wanted to see what it looked like.
Don't forget there is a good chance that these items will go up for sale tomorrow (Weds) at Hasbrotoyshop.com.
I have been getting a ton of emails asking if the 2013 SDCC Boba Fett and Han Solo in Carbonite set will be available on Hasbrotoyshop.com. Here is the low down. Yes it did sell out at the 2013 SDCC as we reported on our Facebook page yesterday. Today (Sunday) I spoke with 2 people from Hunter PR and 2 Hasbro Reps. All 4 people said the same thing. Hasbro has set aside a limited amount of these sets to sell on Hasbrotoyshop.com.
Now when I asked when these would be available online, I got different answers ranging from 7/22 - 7/24. Best thing to do is keep checking the Hasbro website frequently as these will probably sell out in less then 15 minutes.
Did you ever wonder what a ranking list of the best figures from The Vintage Collection would look like? Wonder no more. We have been invited by Jedi Temple Archives to be part of the panel for their “A Digested Look at The Vintage Collection” special report alongside many other fan sites to rank what figures from this collection are the absolute cream of the crop. We also are joined by three special guests from the Hasbro Star Wars team which makes this an unprecedented event. See what figures made the final ranking and compare the panel’s picks and how they differ next to the Hasbro team’s choices. The Special Report also gives warm tribute to The Vintage Collection in a general retrospective manner. There are even some special “gifts” for readers to take away from it. Click through for more.

We had our 10 minute Q&A with Hasbro yesterday at the 2013 SDCC and they were able to answer 18 of the 24 questions that we had for them in this time period.
1. Will the USA see any figures from the last 2 waves of the movie heroes that were released internationally, in some sort of a repack? (i.e. MH red cards MH19: Anakin Skywalker, MH22: Battle Droid, MH23: Sandtrooper, MH24: Boba Fett) (2013: Green cards MH01: - MH09). I really wanted the Blast apart tan and red Battle Droids.
Answer: There is no future plans to repack these. If you really want these, you will have to purchase these internationally.
2. Will there be any type of packaging theme change for the Saga Legends/Mission Series prior to the release of the Sequels or will this be the last card back until the next trilogy?
Answer: Plans are to run the current packaging for about a year, and it may change sometime in 2014.
3. Is the Vintage collection figures still scheduled to make a return? and when?
Answer: Hasbro had a
