I have busy photographing all the new 2014 Black Series 6" toys that I have acquired in the past few days, and as a preview I have uploaded boxed photos to our Facebook Page for your viewing pleasure. These will also get added to the site soon, along with loose photos.
Just received a case of the 2014 Black Series 6" Wave 2 figures in the mail today. This wave includes Anakin Skywalker, Clone Trooper, Stormtrooper, and Boba Fett. i will start to work on some pictures soon.
Just stopped by my local Target here in Texas and found The Black Series 6" Deluxe on the Shelf. If your curious if your local stores has these as well, give them a call and ask if they could check stock on DPCI# 087-06-0901. Happy Hunting!
Stopped by my local Target on my way home from the Airport (Stayed a few extra days in San Diego after SDCC), and they had some of the new Star Wars Rebels (Lightsaber), Command, & Hero series on the shelves. Took some pictures with my iPhone, and uploaded them earlier today to our Facebook Page if you want to check them out.
I was able to get in some more questions today, so here they are:
Question 1) There is a rumor of a 6” Jabba’s Throne Room accessory pack. True or false? The rumors are claiming that this set will include Crumb, Han Solo Carbonite, Jabba’s Hooka and Dias. If this set is true, could this possibly be a exclusive?
Hasbro: Just a rumor. We would like to get to that, but have done Han in Carbonite and Crumb already. Defiantly in the future we could look into producing Jabba’s Dias and other pieces of the Throne Room. But nothing is planned right now. Good idea though.
22 questions asked. 20 questions answered, 2 no comment.
Question 1) I thought the whole idea behind the Rebels and Saga Legends figures was to cut cost by reducing articulation which is fine, but whats going on with the quality i.e. paint applications? They look Terrible!
Hasbro: To keep the $5.99 price point Hasbro has to pick and choose what paint applications are done to each figure to keep the cost down.
Star Wars Collector: We are not to concerned with the lack of paint applications, but the quality of what paint is being applied. There are lots of figures with sloppy paint applications. i.e. Eyes, mouth, and etc.
Hasbro: We will check and see whats going on. We want to do our best and maintain the quality of our products. Even at the lower $5.99 price point you should not expect anything less then a quality product from Hasbro.
At the end of the day Hasbro is making toys for the kids and fans like us. Our goal is to make a product with a price point that kids can afford. If you look at these cheaper figures they are the same or if not better then the Kenner figures we used to play with as kids and thats what Hasbro is going for with this line.
