Last week it was known that Hasbro would be having a number of live streams this week to reveal products from their biggest properties. Yesterday they revealed a number of Star Wars products and I know later this week they’ll be revealing some Transformers and G.I. Joe products.
Hasbro continues to release products for the Mandalorian series and their latest product is a Bop-It The Child which I’m sure will be very popular as most if not all Mandalorian products have been flying off the shelves the last few months! It’s not for me but I’m glad Hasbro is noticing the popularity of The Child from the Mandalorian.
Most of the reveals that they revealed yesterday are for their Black Series and Vintage Collection lines. As I’m a big fan of both of these lines I was very impressed with the reveals. I know that a third Empire Strikes Back 40th Anniversary Black Series was happening, though I wasn’t too sure on the lineup. If you’ve been looking at this site for some time and have seen some of my latest videos on my Youtube channel you know I’m a big fan of the Vintage Card figures!
I’m set on getting all the figures in the third wave and I’ll be getting doubles of all of them one to keep on the card and one to take out of the packaging and I really love the card backs for Boba, Dagobah Luke, Snowtrooper and Darth Vader. I know that the Dagobah Luke is getting another release he’ll be released in a deluxe set with Yoda where he comes with the backpack, interchangeable hands along with Yoda who comes with his own accessories (yes I intend to get that too)
It’s been known for some time that the Hoth Rebel Trooper would get a re-release in an upcoming wave and I will say I am very excited to get this figure as I want to have a number of Rebel Troopers in my display and I’m really excited for the reveals of the other figures for this wave and if the figures that are rumored to b n this wave actually are it would be another fantastic wave for the line!
They revealed a number of products for their Vintage Collection too, the biggest one being the official reveal of the Bespin Carbonite Freezing Play Set. I have to say it does look incredible and I love the packaging too. I have to say Hasbro does a fantastic job with the packaging with the Vintage Collection vehicles and playsets. The Chirrut Imwe figure looks great and the likeness to Donnie Yen is fantastic and yes I would love to see a Black Series re-release with the face printing tech as at this scale this figure looks incredible. The mockup of the Bespin Leia looks great too. I have to say at this moment it’s unclear what waves Chirrut and Leia will appear in.
Also during the live stream, they revealed that the next Haslab Star Wars Vintage Collection project will be revealed soon and they have big plans to support the Vintage Collection line. They also said that more Clone Wars characters will be released in the Vintage Collection and Black Series line which excites me greatly as my wishlist is pretty big, They announced that Commander Cody won the archive fan vote, though I don’t doubt that all the characters that could be selected would appear in the Black Series line at some point. Most excitedly for me, they have said they have plans to release more Video Game characters in the Black Series line so it may be possible for Starkiller from the Force Unleashed video games to appear in the line.
Overall it was a very exciting livestream and here are more details of the products they have revealed below.
