Hasbro Shares Star Wars Black Series Details for Force Friday

It’s Force Friday! At midnight tonight, stores have the green light to finally put Star Wars products out on the shelf. There’s a ton of it, and Hasbro has shared the official pics and descriptions. We’re going to focus it on the Star Wars Black Series 6-inch offerings.

We’ve seen some product line extensions in 6-inch. In addition to single-carded figures, we’re seeing more vehicles and a completely new line that includes 6-inch scaled statues plus environments, which you can plus up by adding your own Black Series figures to the scene.

Finally, if you’re sensitive to spoilers (even minor ones), you might want to skip this article. I try to stay away from entertainment news, but the product line-ups may reveal characters and story details that might tell you too much for your taste.

May the Force be with you!

Get a Personalized SHIELD Guidebook for Your Little (or Big) Agent of SHIELD

Put Me In The Story - Avengers Black Ops Field Guide

I’ve been suffering from some lingering guilt ever since getting a personalized SHIELD badge and ID card at NYCC a few years ago, when the Agents of SHIELD TV sereies was just getting started. You see, I got one for myself, and not for my wife. So when I got the opportunity to personalize The Avengers: Black Ops Field Guide book from Put Me In The Story, I jumped at the chance to immortalize Agent Random Things in print.

The process took just a few minutes, and after about a week, I was able to give her a completely personalized book, including a SHIELD ID card with her picture and details, a dedication I wrote, and a bunch of other cool stuff in the book. I recreated the process with a pre-Super Soldier Serum Steve Rogers for you to follow along, since my wife would terminate me with extreme prejudice if I were to divulge any of her personal info. 😀

Weekend Toy Run: Pre-Order the Marvel Select Ant-Man Unmasked Exclusive

Marvel Select Ant-Man unmasked exclusive

We’re three weeks away from the opening of Ant-Man, and the hype machine is in full effect with a ton of media coverage, including a fourth TV spot, “Become the Hero.”  And while we’ve seen a bunch of Ant-Man toys up for pre-order, we haven’t seen one with Paul Rudd’s likeness on it – until now.

The unmasked version of the Marvel Select Ant-Man is available to pre-order now. Like the more widespread release, the 7-inch figure will come with his masked head, 3 pairs of interchangeable hands, and a 1.5-inch Ant-Man, but the unmasked Paul Rudd head will be exclusive to Marvel / Disney stores and will be featured on the figure in package. And bonus – it’s due to be released by the movie opening date of July 17.
