Looks like Preorders for Haslab's Transformers: War For Cybertron Unicron Project is picking up. Last Sunday evening there was only 3008 preorders, but in the last few days that number has jumped to 5031 (as of this post) with a little over 4 more days to go to hit 8000 preorders in order for this product to go into production.
From what I am hearing from Transformer collectors, they are really excited for this product, but some feel its a bit overpriced at $575.
Anyways hopefully this Project makes it. If you have any interest in this project, you must place your preorder by 11:59 PM ET on 08.31.2019.Add a comment
One of my friends attended the 2019 Disney D23 Expo over the weekend and came across some Exclusive Diecast Droid Sets that Disney Was offering. There were 3 sets, Series 01, 02, and 03. These Droids look to be from Disney's Exclusive Elite Series Diecast Line, in special packaging, but "Elite Series" is not printed on these boxes, so I wont know for sure until my sets arrive. The sets were $89.95 each.

Astromech Droid Set Series 02
Astromech Droid Set Series 03
My friend was able to take a couple photos in all the madness at D23, which can be viewed on our Facebook Page. If these did not sell out at D23, there is a possibility that the leftovers will be put up on ShopDisney.com like they have done with product in the past.
I sent a email out to my Disney contacts to ask if any of these Droids would be offered in different packaging at local Disney Stores and online in the future, so we will see what they have to say. Thanks to Sean for the info, Pics and etc.Add a comment

Target Clearance - TBS Force FX Z6 Riot Control Baton ($49.19) And TVC Imperial Combat Assault Tank ($36)
Was just surfing Target.com and noticed they have clearanced out The Black Series Force FX Z6 Riot Control Baton at $49.19 (MSRP $199.99) and The Vintage Collection Imperial Combat Assault Tank for $36 (MSRP $79.99). This is the cheapest I believe I have seen these so far, so thought I would mention it. These are in stock as of this post and ready to ship. Both these items qualify for free standard shipping.
I personally just bought The Black Series Force FX Z6 Riot Control Baton at $49.19, to display in my office.
Also Target has a deal on toys in general, if you spend $50 you get a free $10 gift card and if you spend over $100 you get a $25 gift card. Offer expires 8/31/19.Add a comment
With just about 26 hours to go, it looks like Haslab's Cookie Monster Project will end up not meeting its minimum target of 3000 units to go into production. As of this post only 563 preorders were sold. Unless there is a Hail Mary in the final hours and people preorder 2,437 units this project will be a bust.
Also the Haslab Transformers: War For Cybertron Unicron Project is a bit lagging in preorders as well. So far only 3,008 preorders have been placed with a goal of 8000 units to be sold. But there is still a week to go so we will see what happens then.
So why are these Projects not doing well? Poor product choices? High prices?Add a comment

The Walmart Exclusive Vintage Collection Jabba's Palace Adventure Set has been added to our HD Photo Gallery. About time Hasbro made a proper Playset which is made of 100% plastic and not that "Play Board" that was used in the Solo Playsets. This set includes a 3 walled Playset in which you can configure in a few different ways and 2 carded (repacked) figures which are VC136: Han Solo (Carbonite) and VC137: Ree Yees.
Enjoy our large, clear, sharp HD Images that you wont find in other Photo Galleries or Archives.Add a comment

Updates To TVC 3.75-Inch VC136 Han Solo (Carbonite) Or VC137 Ree-Yees Figures Included In Jabba's Palace?
Some of our readers have been asking if there were any changes to The Vintage Collection VC136 Han Solo (Carbonite) Or VC137 Ree-Yees figures that are included with the Walmart Exclusive Jabba's Palace Adventure Set (assuming people are not wanting to open the box up to check). So I opened this set up to check it out.
The figure sculpts are the same as The Black Series #19: Han Solo (with Carbonite Block) and #28: Ree-Yees figures that were previously released. Hasbro did update the paint applications on both figures though. Also a magnet has been added to the Han Solo Carbonite Block that allows you to hang it on the wall in the Jabba's Palace Adventure set. Above is a photo if you want to see the updated Vintage Collection figures.
Now that I have finally opened this set up, I will work on taking some photos in the next few days and get them posted.Add a comment
