Today was the big Hasbro collectors event. The presentation was over two hours long so there was a lot of information to absorb. We did our best live Tweeting at the event as they did not allow recording of any kind this year. Here’s some information from the Tweets as well as some additional fill in information.
Clone Wars has been wildly successful and will continue with new figures such as Asoka, the bounty hunter El-les, and anakin from season 3. The large vehicle for this year will be from Clone Wars – The Republic Attack ship will be on shelves in Aug. The ship turns into a battle play set. Cannons pop up and are ready for clone troopers to man them. In battle playset mode the cockpit pops out and has some additional fold down wings come down and make a smaller attack vehicle.
They will continue the line of small vehicles that come with a single figure.
Vintage line will be continued through 2012. We will see an additional 35 figs in 2011 from all 6 films as well as expanded universe. There will also be figures from deleted scenes figs coming out this fall that tie into the Blu-ray. Other new vintage figures include a new General Lando, rebel blockade trooper, logray, Baris, Dom Vimdin, Dr. Evazon, Nom Anor, Kithaba and Pondo Baba
Hasbro will be celebrating the original working title of Return of the Jedi by releasing 12 figures on Revenge of the Cards. These will be released in limited quantities at retail. But if you can’t get the whole set they will have a Comic Con exclusive of all 12 figures in special Death Star II packaging. of the 12 figs Included will be new figures such as Slave Leia, B-wing pilot, Endor Luke, as well as re-releases such as Boba Fett, Wicket, Admiral Akbar and Drink serving R2-D2. Exclusive to this set will be 2 mini figures on mini cards. The mini-figures will be Salacious Crumb and a Mouse Droid.
The mail in figure for 2011 will be the all white Prototype armor Boba Fett from the original screen test. He will have a slight pattern to the cape as the original costume cape was a spray painted SW Beach towel.
