The @Hasbro @Amazon Exclusive #StarWars First Order 7-Pack Boxed Set

This week the mailman dropped off my Hasbro/Amazon exclusive Star Wars: The Force Awakens First Order Legion 7-pack.   This is a set that I literally ordered on my smartphone while I was standing in line for Toys R Us to open for Force Friday back in September.   The day after I ordered I was told it was delayed until February.   Then I got a update last week saying it would arrive this week.

I ordered this a bit blindly.  I didn’t know if it would have unique packaging or if I would just get 7 single carded figures in one box.   I did know, at the time that it looked like there were two exclusive figures in the set.

The packaging turned out pretty cool.  It’s a cube that unfolds to reveal all 7 figures and their bios.   There is a tab with velcro that holds the cube closed.

The package: – The packaging reuses the original painting used on the single card releases as well as showing the planet/location factions that the figures appear in the film.

The Figures:  Five of of seven figures are the same as their single carded releases and come with the same accessories as their original release.  The two exclusives to this set (for now?) are the Riot Control First Order Stormtrooper and the Heavy Artillery Stormtrooper.

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
