This morning we had a Q & A with Hasbro’s Patrick Schneider (Hasbro Global Brand Manager, Star Wars) and Eric Franer (Designer, Star Wars). The questions we asked were submitted from our readers.
Q1. Why have you guys not produced a The Vintage Collection 3.75-Inch or Black Series 6-Inch Blurrg or Boba Fett from The Mandalorian yet? These would sell like hotcakes.
Hasbro Answer from Eric: So we cant speak to anything that has not been officially announced or released . These are all things that we have considered and aware of, that fans really want and we do know they would sell really well and there is a huge demand for them. While we cant announce anything right now, it is something we are aware of and something really cool to get in the line, especially a 6-Inch Blurrg.Add a comment
For those that like to collect Packaging Variations, the entire The Black Series 6-Inch Archive 50th Lucasfilm Anniversary Wave 2 has shipped to retailers with a 4 sided square bubble and also the typical left corner angled bubble. Per the date stamps, the square bubbles were released first and then the left corner angled bubbles. Above is a quick picture from my iPhone.Add a comment

Looks like Target.com has given up on receiving another shipment of their Exclusive The Black Series 6-Inch Carbonized Mandalorian. For the past few months they have sent out multiple delay notices for preorders, in which you had to confirm you wanted to continue to wait for this item. But in the last few days they have been canceling preorders all together.
I am waiting to hear back to see if the item has been cancelled or if they are still being produced and will arrive at a later time. Guess we will have to wait and see.Add a comment
Stopped by my local Texas Walmart Today, and found a Star Wars Black Series 6-Inch display hanging on the end cap down the action figure aisle. Figures offered in this display were:
• Asajj Ventress
• Bo Katan
• Elite Squad Trooper
Was surfing around on Disney+ and noticed they have created a new “Star Wars Vintage” Category which include shows from the Past like:
• Ewoks (Cartoon Series)
• Clone Wars (2D Micro-series)
• The Story of the Faithful Wookiee
• Caravan of Courage (1984)
• Ewoks the Battle For Endor (1985)
It will be interesting to see what else gets added to this Category in the future, maybe the 1978 Star Wars Holiday Special?Add a comment

Be Prepared For Possible Damaged Cards And Bubbles - BestBuy.com Exclusive Lucasfilm 50th Anniversary TBS 6-Inch 50th The Phantom Menace Figures
Now that preorders of the Exclusive Lucasfilm 50th Anniversary TBS 6-Inch 50th The Phantom Menace Battle Droid, Mace Windu, Qui-Gon Jinn, and Jar Jar Binks figures are starting to arrive at doorsteps from BestBuy.com, we now know that Hasbro did not pack each Figure Card in Hasbro Factory Shipper Boxes unfortunately, like they did with the Amazon’s Exclusive Kenner Inspired TBS 6-Inch Lucasfilm 50th Anniversary Original Trilogy Figures.
I have already received lots of reports of people receiving their orders with bent cards and smashed bubbles, so keep your fingers crossed that your order arrives in good condition.
Now if you are a loose collector this means nothing.Add a comment
Stopped by a couple of my local Texas Target stores today and notice that they have started to clearance out The Black Series 6-Inch Deluxe TPM 01: Jar Jar Binks figures. Currently my store has him at 30% off making the price $20.99 instead of $29.99. As the weeks go by the price will even drop more, while supplies last.
I personally thought this figure was great, but looks like either Hasbro over produced this figure, or Fans just ain’t buying him.Add a comment
