You can now find the Hasbro Force Link 2.0 Chewbacca figure variation in the database. The first release of Chewbacca had no details on the back of the bandolier and a slightly but noticeably different paint application. You can spot the difference through the packaging, just look at the figure from the side and see if you can make out the sculpted details or not. Have a look at the pictures below and check out the full database entry here:
We've received some Star Wars item finders by PLOX and would like to share some thoughts about them with you. With a Star Wars item finder you will find your stuff anywhere in the galaxy, and this is particularly helpful when you are just about to head out the door on a toy run looking for new Star Wars figures, and you can't find your keys or wallet! Of course Star Wars item finders can be attached to almost anything like suitcases, backpacks and other important items which you don't want to lose.
All you have to do is download the Plox Finder app (all free!) and connect it to your Star Wars item finder, and that's it! There are currently six different designs available which you can collect, Darth Vader, Chewbacca, R2-D2, BB-8, BB-9e and the Stormtrooper.
BanDai has announced a new Tamashii Nations S.H. Figuarts 5.5" figure of Anakin Skywalker from Revenge Of The Sith! The figure will be out in September this year and will only be available in Japan. The figure will come with three (!) head sculpts (regular, screaming, sith eyes), two lightsabers (ignited, non-ignited), two left wrists and three right wrists. Have a look at the glam shots below:
Hasbro's HasLab Sail Barge Behind The Workbench booklets have been arriving on north American doorsteps this past week. If you've pre-ordered the Sail Barge make sure to go out and check your mail boxes! The 62 page booklet gives a detailed look into the creation of the Sail Barge including expert insights by Mark Boudreaux, the 1980 concept phase at Lucasfilm, Sail Barge concepts by Ralph McQuarrie and the model design which was used in Return Of The Jedi. In addition it features a look at how Hasbro built the Barge, including the dimensions and 3D renderings.
This is a fantastic companion piece to the actual Sail Barge and a great collector item. Unfortunately we can't share more images with you due to the copyright.
We've reveived several reports of collectors finding the Black Series Porgs at Target stores for $5.99 each. If you are still looking for them a trip to your local Target store might be worth it. They've also put out a nice display box which is sitting right in the middle of all the Star Wars toys.
Hasbro has finally released an update for their Force Link 2.0 app via the iTunes app store. Now all your Force Link 2.0 enabled Star Wars figures can talk! Unfortunately the udpate takes quite a well to download and finish (we tested this with an iPhone 7 Plus and a WifFi connection and it took over 30 minutes to complete). We'll be updating the database with all the voice samples over the coming days, please stay tuned.
