 "Hasbro doesn't want to make 3.75-inch figures because there is no profit."

"Hasbro is lying about Vintage Series sales numbers. They're really higher than Black Series ones."

"If you don't pay full price for the rerelease of Slave I you are killing the line."

"The Vintage Collection line is dead. Hasbro just hasn't told us yet."

 

Those and many other rumors swirl around Hasbro's current 3.75-inch figure line "The Vintage Collection." Fans, frustrated by the lack of new figures released in that line, start "storytelling" to come up with reasons why the number of new Star Wars figures in the classic scale is so small while the 6-inch Black Series line gets so many.

On this new Star Wars Action News podcast we take those statements directly to the source! Listen as our host Arnie interviews Patrick Schneider (Hasbro's Senior Brand Manager for Star Wars) and Eric Franer (Product Designer on Hasbro's Star Wars team). In addition to asking about Black Series rereleases, Retro Collection beasts, and, the heart of the conversation, what is the status of The Vintage Collection.

Also on this show Arnie and Marjorie are again joined by Chris and Johnathan to discuss the history of the 3.75-inch highly articulated line, the benefits of 6-inch versus 3.75-inch figures, and the feasibility of the many conspiracy theories that surround the toys.

Listen (or watch) now to hear all this and more on this Star Wars Action News podcast!

"May the 4th be with you." What started as an internet pun (or a lisp) has been co-opted by Disney and become their official "Star Wars Day." (Including terms of use per the Disney+ Twitter account!)

 

Still, commercialization of fan culture is nothing new and this past weekend was a great celebration of Star Wars. We had new figure reveals from Hasbro for both the Black Series and The Vintage Collection. Gentle Giant (Diamond Select Toys) released a new mini-bust. Hot Toys got in on the action with one cool repaint and one highly requested rerelease, and more!

 

So join Arnie and Marjorie with guests Chris and Johnathan as they tell you about the best bargains, the coolest reveals, and the current state of Star Wars Celebration 2020.
