European The Vintage Collection Packaging! Doctor Aphra Is Coming To Germany!

7/31/2018 Noris Force Con The Vintage Collection Hasbro

The organizers of the Noris Force Con in Germany have announced that there will be three Hasbro convention exclusives available at their event. So far two of the three have been announced while the third exclusive is going to be announced in the near future. 

The first exclusive is the Doctor Aphra Comic Set 3-Pack which was available at San Diego Comic Con in the United States. This time however the packaging will look quite different with several different languages on the front of the box. The figures will be the same however, a price has not been announced yet. 

The second exclusive will be the Han Solo Exogorth Escape set, which was also previously available at San Diego Comic Con in the United States. The packaging looks identical but the back will likely be updated in multiple different languages. A price has not been announced yet. 

Exclusives will only be sold at the show and will not be available online afterwards. Even though those figures are exclusive to the convention in Germany, there is a good chance that they will be available at other conventions in Europe over the coming months. Hasbro will have two representatives at the show holding a panel and a Q&A with attendees about their Star Wars toy line. Noris Force Con will be held from September 21 - 23rd 2018 in Fürth, Germany. You can follow Noris Force Con on Facebook for more information.

Sail Barge Press Release

2/17/2018 Sail Barge HasbroLab.com The Vintage Collection

Here is Hasbro's press release about the Sail Barge: 

HASBRO is constantly working to create innovative and exciting new products that cater to the unique needs of consumers and fans. In 2018, we take that pledge one step further with the launch of HASLAB!

Announced at this year’s Toy Fair, HASLAB is Hasbro’s new platform that hopes to put dream products into the hands of fans. To that end, we’re excited to announce that the first HASLAB item is the biggest Star Wars vehicle Hasbro and Kenner have ever produced – fan favorite JABBA’S SAIL BARGE! Measuring approximately 4 feet long, this large scale, highly detailed item features premium deco and vintage packaging. An incredible addition to any collection, Jabba’s Sail Barge comes complete with  exquisitely-detailed and fan accessible interior/exterior decks, one Jabba the Hutt 3.75-inch scale figure, two soft-cloth fabric sails, and other realistic features that mimic one of the most notorious vehicles in the Star Wars universe.

HASLAB takes inspiration from other platforms by inviting participants to support the product by backing the project up front by placing a pre-order. You’re our only hope to make Jabba’s Sail Barge a reality! For Jabba’s Sail Barge to go into production, Hasbro must meet a certain minimum threshold of 5,000 pre-orders. It’s up to the fans to support the campaign and help successfully reach that goal by 11:59pm ET on April 3rd, 2018. Those who pre-order the item will also receive “Jabba’s Sail Barge (The Khetanna): Behind The Workbench,”  a premium, 64-page booklet that goes behind the scenes of the design and development of the actual Sail Barge film set piece and Hasbro toy and includes set photos, product blueprints, interviews, and more. 

Starting today, fans can place a pre-order for Jabba’s Sail Barge at HASBRO.COM/HASLAB. If the goal is met, the product will go into production. For more information on HASLAB and to follow the project’s progress throughout the 45 day pre-order window, visit HASBRO.COM/HASLAB and follow @HasbroPulse on social media.

As revealed today at Hasbro’s Star Wars Celebration Orlando panel, the 3.75-inch Vintage Collection is back in 2018. And they want you to decide which character will be next to join the fan-favorite line!

Kicking off today is Hasbro’s Star Wars Fan Figure Vote, where you’ll get to vote for your favorite hero, villain, droid, or alien that has yet to be made into an action figure. It could be anyone — from Doctor Aphra of Marvel’s comics to Klik-Klak from Star Wars Rebels. (And remember, the world still needs a Tonnika action figure!)

First-round voting in Hasbro’s initiative will take place at Star Wars fan sites from today, April 15-April 19; after voting closes, the top picks from each site will be entrants in a final poll at StarWars.com, which will run from April 26-30. The winner will be announced at a later date.

TYPE THE NAME OF THE CHARACTER YOU WANT TO BE MADE INTO A 3.75" SUPER ARTICULATED STAR WARS FIGURE INTO THE COMMENTS. LIKES WILL NOT BE COUNTED.
