Hasbro Shares Details for Star Wars Retailer Exclusives

hasbro-star-wars-retailer-exclusives

We’re a week away from Force Friday, and Hasbro has more retailer exclusives incoming. As you might expect, most are tied-in with Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, but a certain astromech droid is looking to remote control his way to your heart.

With the Star Wars Smart R2-D2, Hasbro is looking to capture some of the magic that Sphero did with its app-enabled BB-8 (http://amzn.to/2cMWhmE). While you won’t be able to pick up R2-D2 at Walmart until next week, you can preview the companion app for Android and iOS now. Now I just need an appropriately-sized C-3PO head for Artoo to drag around.

There’s More Hasbro Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Toys Coming

More Hasbro Rogue One A Star Wars Story Toys

If you were wondering where the 3.75-inch figures were in yesterday’s Star Wars reveals from Hasbro (http://afpics.link/2bGG8ir), they couldn’t be contained in a single announcement! But there’s more.

Hasbro also shared their role play items, which include a voice changer Death Trooper mask and a pretty cool update to their Stormtrooper voice changer helmet.

It’s Time to Order Your Dr. Strange Marvel Legends!

Marvel Legends Dr Strange wave

By the hoary hosts of Hoggoth, we’re a couple of months away from Benedict Cumberbatch’s Dr. Strange hitting theaters, on November 4 in the US. Online retailers have their pre-orders up for the Strange Marvel Legends wave, and they’re expecting figures to land some time this month.

Here’s where I recommend picking them up:

Unlike most Legends waves, this one has eight individual figures. You will not have any extras after you assemble the BAF, the dread Dormammu. EE has the benefit of free shipping, which makes a difference.

Individually, cherry pick the Dr. Strange wave at Amazon (http://afpics.link/2cdTJvT) for $19.99 with free prime shipping.

“Every Day They Grow Stronger” – Hasbro Reveals Line-Ups for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Hasbro Rogue One A Star Wars Story Black Series

You didn’t need the Force to know Hasbro would be coming out with new toys for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, right? Hasbro has shared the initial line-ups for vehicles and playsets for the 3.75-inch scale, a wave of figures for Star Wars: Black Series in the 6-inch scale, and basic and deluxe figures in the 12-inch scale.

With their recent foray into super-articulated 12-inch figures for Marvel, I thought maybe Star Wars would follow suit with Black Series in 12-inches. But that’s not to be this time around.

No Bothans were harmed to bring us this press release.
