2018 Unboxing Toy Convention Star Wars Black Series & Vintage Collection Reveals

Recommended Posts

While you may still be trying to fully digest the Star Wars reveals made 2 weeks ago at San Diego Comic Con, we just wanted to let everyone know that this weekend is the Unboxing Toy Convention which takes place in Mexico City, where Hasbro will be on hand. We do expect them to make reveals for both their Star Wars and Marvel Legends lines. While not 100% confirmed, we are expecting them to reveal between 3-4 new Marvel Legends figures at the Hasbro panel which takes place tomorrow (8/4) at 4:30PM CST. We know they will also be showing Star Wars stuff at this panel as well, though we don't know how much in the way of new stuff they will be announcing. We'll be working with the folks from the Magios Initiative to help us bring you full coverage of the event. If all goes well, coverage should begin right around that 4:30PM time and of course if Hasbro slips anything out new earlier in the day we will also bring you coverage of that. So be sure to keep it to MarvelousNews and JediInsider this weekend for all the reveals, and let us know what you are hoping to see there in the comments below.

What do you think they'll reveal?

BS Archive Darth Maul?

Prequel Trilogy 6" (Obi-Wan, Mace, Padme'?)

The next wave of TVC?

Something else?

Hasbro is holding a panel today at the Unboxing Toy Convention in Mexico City and we are bringing you coverage of it live. Thanks to the folks with the Magios Initiative for helping us with coverage of this event. Also thanks to Christian for images.

See the live feed. It is in Spanish. Actually they are speaking both English and Spanish.
 



Force FX Obi-Wan lightsaber is shown.

Mace Windu's purple FX lightsaber is shown as well. Finally Vaders.

Now on to 6" Black Series. So far they are going over everything we saw at SDCC including the new Ezra figure. Chopper they mention how the arms will fold into the body and it will have a stand that can be used in place of the middle leg.

Right now they have shown nothing new, just the same reveals from SDCC. They have moved on to Vintage Collection. Darth Raven is getting released in the Vintage Collection along with a Rogue One Storm Trooper. Again we saw these at SDCC. Lando from Solo is coming to Vintage Collection and Rogue One Death Star Gunner. Photo Real is being added to the smaller scale Vintage Collection like we've seen with the 6" figures.

Now they are talking about the history and a bit behind-the-scene stuff for Black Series.

Here come the new reveals...

Vintage Collection - Princess Leia in Bounty Hunter Disguise. For Black Series 6" they announced Han Solo in Imperial Disguise from Solo movie.

Panel ends. Check out images below.

Well, that’s all pretty underwhelming... At least, to me. I was honestly hoping we might see them drop a 6” Zeb, to go with Ezra and Chopper. That Han seems like it’s going to be a waste of production material. As, I think most of the people who liked Solo — like myself — would already be satisfied with the regular Han. Unless they made an alternate version of him in his white vest, as he appears earlier in the movie. They really would’ve gotten me excited if they’d pulled out a Q’ira as she appears toward the latter half of the movie, as well.

It's not his "disguise" it's his uniform!
They should have really had that out when the Solo movie came out!

In case you missed it this weekend, Hasbro revealed a new 3.75" Vintage Collection and 6" Black Series figure for their Star Wars lines during the Unboxing Toy Convention in Mexico City. For the Vintage Collection they debuted their Leia Boushh figure which will be the first 3.75 figure to incorporate the PhotoReal technology previously seen on their 6" ones.

For the 6" Black Series they debuted their Han Solo MimBan figure from Solo: A Star Wars Story.

Check out new images of both figures from the Hasbro booth via Pixel-Dan as well as hi-res PR images sent to us by Hasbro. Han's Hand came loose on the Black Series figure that was on display at the Hasbro booth which is likely due to it being a prototype.

Expect Hasbro to reveal the next round of new Star Wars stuff at the Canadian Fan Expo which takes place at the end of the month from August 30 - September 2.

I feel like that Han is going to be wasted production material... As, even though I dug Solo: A Star Wars Story, and grabbed up Han and Lando as soon as I could, I just feel like the movie wasn’t popular enough with the mass audience, let alone the intended Star Wars fan community, to really warrant a whole bunch of variants from the movie. Perhaps with the exception of Q’ira, as I think they should’ve put out a figure of her as she appears in the latter half of the movie, either alongside, or in place of, the one they already released (which I still have yet to find, myself). Especially considering all of the characters people are still waiting for.

I’d have at least liked to see them announce an Archive re-release of Leia in her Boushh disguise, which is another one I missed, via its initial release, since they were already showing off that 3.75 version.
