New York Toy Fair is just around the corner, and while Hasbro seems to have given away the secrets early, Star Wars Action News hosts Arnie and Marjorie think a few more surprises are on the way.

 

One of those is likely Hasbro’s Hyperreal Bespin Luke Skywalker figure from The Empire Strikes Back. Is that something to get exited over? In prep, join Marjorie and Arnie in this episode where they get Hyperreal, and hands-on, with Hasbro’s Hyperreal Darth Vader figure. 

 

Then join them this weekend for all the coverage LIVE from New York, including Hasbro, LEGO, Gentle Giant, Kotobukiya, and more! Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

Jan 7, 2020: Star Wars Collectors’ 2019 Year in Review - Audio Podcast

Jan 7, 2020: Star Wars Collectors’ 2019 Year in Review - Audio Podcast

January 7, 2020

For Star Wars collectors 2019 was a mix of the good, the bad, and the ugly.

The good included the most detailed Star Wars vehicle/playset ever in the form of Jabba's Sail Barge. Plus the Black Series 6-inch line continued strong with great offerings from Clone Wars Armor Obi-Wan Kenobi to The Mandalorian, plus several Rise of Skywalker figures.

Mixed in with that was some bad: The limited-articulation 3.75" line that had been a mainstay for years was cancelled. The Vintage Collection filled that niche, but lacked in new figures and in-store availability. The new 5-inch Galaxy of Adventures line didn't click with many collectors.

Then in the ugly was the limited availability of Retro Collection figures at Target--especially the multi-colored Darth Vader. And what, no Baby Yoda toys?

In this new Star Wars Action News podcast the team comes together to reflect on what the last year brought--and what they hope the new year can deliver!

All of 2019 feels like a slow build-up to the biggest cinematic event of the year: Star Wars Episode IX in December. With "Triple Force Friday" already announced for October it's clear many of the toys and figures of 2019 will be a secret for eight more months. Yet Hasbro still had plenty of Star Wars to share in both 3.75-inch and 6-inch scales at this year's Toy Fair International in New York. Join Arnie and Marjorie now for all the information directly from New York!
