  1. Los Angeles-based Kilburn Live has entered into a licensing agreement with Hasbro, a global play and entertainment company, to create, build and operate Hasbro-themed family entertainment centers across the US and Canada. The indoor family entertainment facilities will take iconic Hasbro brands and create interactive, immersive and innovative entertainment experiences in a high-energy, gamified environment with multiple activity zones. Kilburn Live, in partnership with Fort Worth-based private investment company Goff Capital, a substantial shareholder of Kilburn Live, hired Charlie Keegan, former CEO of Main Event Entertainment, to head the new division that will lead the development of the multiple location rollout across North America. “Hasbro is a leader in branded play and entertainment, and its iconic brands appeal to a multigenerational fan base.” said Charlie Keegan. John Goff, of Goff Capital, added, “As with everything we do at Goff Capital, we aim to partner with the best and bring in the most qualified people to run our businesses. Hasbro is the world’s largest toy company and hiring Charlie, an experienced industry leader in the location based entertainment space, was a coup.” "This new concept and collaboration marks our initial step into a wider partnership with Hasbro, a world leading branded play and entertainment company, with one of the best lineup of brands we have come across” said Kilburn Media CEO Mark Manuel. “This exciting new move is an extension of our creative skillsets built over the years and expands on our business of creating and building unique experiences." Current licensed brands include well-known franchises including MY LITTLE PONY, MONOPOLY, MR. POTATO HEAD, GI JOE, CLUE, BATTLESHIP, HUNGRY HUNGRY HIPPO, TRIVIAL PURSUIT, CHUTES AND LADDERS and others. As Hasbro consumers are looking for more ways to engage with its brands that are loved by adults and kids alike, Hasbro believes that this new endeavor will exceed their expectations. "Hasbro is committed to ‘creating the world's best play experiences.’ In our 95-year history, Hasbro has transcended the toy aisle to become a lifestyle brand that both kids and adults enjoy,” said Casey Collins, SVP & GM Hasbro Consumer Products. “Our partnership with Kilburn will allow us - for the first time ever - to offer a wholly immersive and true play experience that unlocks a totally new and exciting way for fans to experience the Hasbro family of brands.”
  2. Hasbro continues to provide us figures based on Solo: A Star Wars Story for their 6" Black Series line with Rio Durant and Val (Vandor-1), both of which are members of Beckett's original crew. Both figures come packaged in the standard Black series style of window box with the black and red colors featuring a multilingual bio for the characters on the back. For accessories Val comes with a blaster similar to what you see her use in the movie and Durant comes with a pistol, rifle and removable googles. He also has a working gun holster for the pistol. For the figures themselves, I think Hasbro has done a wonderful job capturing the likeness of both characters. Val's headsculpt looks dead on to actress Thandie Newton who played the character in the movie and the paint applications are as good as any i've seen on a Black Series figure. The outfit she wears is nicely detailed and I really like how the translucent tubing on her upper body and arms look. She has a pair of goggles sculpted around her neck but they aren't useable. Other nice details on the figure include the sculpted fur around her neck that goes down the zipper-line of her jacket and the harness pieces that attach from her belt and go around here legs. She has some tails from the coat made with a rubber vinyl like material that go down her backside to her knees. As good as Val is, I think Durant is who was voiced by Jon Favreau in the movie is the cooler of the two figures. His headsculpt is also nicely sculpted capturing the alien look quit nicely. Besides the removable goggles with the red lenses, he also has a communication mouth piece which you can remove from his ear. It attaches at the figures waist so it's not really removable from the figure itself. Durant features four arms all of which are articulated and work fairly well with the figure. You can get him in multiple poses with the weapons he comes with which is nice. The jump suit he wears appears to be very movie accurate and I like the sculpting of his alien shaped feet. I think Durant is so cool in large part because he is such a unique looking character with the multiple arms and everything. Articulation is basic on both figures, both featuring single-hinged elbows. Val has double hinged knees while Durant only has single-hinged ones due to being a smaller character. Despite having four arms, Durant also has some midsection articulation with rotation. This is because the extra pair of arms are sculpted on the shoulders that stick out in the back. The scale seems to be decent when you compare these two with the other 6" Solo figures Hasbro has already released, so no complaints there. At the end of the day especially if you are a fan of the Solo movie and in Durant's case if you like unique looking alien figures, I think you will want to add these figures to your collection. Both figures have started to see release. You can get them at our sponsor Megalopolis.Toys. See more images for both figures below and let us know what you think about them in the COMMENTS SECTION.
  3. Dengar is another great addition to my bounty hunter group.Hasbro is doing such a great job on these vintage characters!
  4. I really dig this Marvel Legends version of Lady Deadpool, I have the Marvel Select version but this one is way better as far as articulation goes.
  5. Today at BlizzCon 2018, Blizzard Entertainment’s games and community convention in Anaheim, California, the company revealed a full lineup of global consumer products announcements for the tens of thousands of gamers in attendance and following along online via the BlizzCon Virtual Ticket. Featured were previews and reveals for several upcoming 2019 products stemming from partnerships with The LEGO Group, Hasbro, UNIQLO and FUNKO, each highlighting new ways for fans to showcase their passion for the characters and settings of Blizzard’s globally acclaimed games, such as Overwatch, World of Warcraft, Hearthstone and Diablo III. “Throughout 2018 our goal has been to give fans an abundance of new ways to express their affinity for their favorite Blizzard games, and it was exciting to be able to showcase our plans for 2019 and beyond today at BlizzCon,” said Matthew Beecher, Vice President of Global Consumer Products, Blizzard Entertainment. “We cherish these game worlds as much as our players do, and today’s reveals helped put a spotlight on how far we’ve come, through our stellar partnerships, in developing toys and apparel that reflect that shared passion.” As the master toy licensee for Overwatch, Hasbro revealed the OVERWATCH ULTIMATES MERCY figure, which is the first figure to be unveiled within its OVERWATCH ULTIMATES FIGURE assortment, coming to most major retailers next spring. Check out an image below.

  8. Hasbro has taken an obscure character that appeared in a movie largely panned by fans and critics and given us a fairly solid figure with this new Target exclusive 6" Black Series Moloch figure. Moloch was a character that had maybe 5 minutes of screen time in this years Solo: A Star Wars story and while I can't say this was a figure I was dying for, once in hand I have to admit it is a pretty cool figure. The packaging is the same as any other Black Series figure. The black window-box with red highlights featuring a bio on the back in multiple languages. For accessories you get a staff, pistol that fits in a working holster and removable faceplate to protect him from sunlight when he goes outside. The staff has a little bit of white paint at the end but basically looks like brown plastic. The pistol has a unique design with a metallic paint for most of the weapon. The handle looks like brown plastic. The faceplate features a cream and metallic paint that matches up nicely with the rest of the figure. I like how the face plate fits in the mask and I like how the mask itself on the figure has some articulation where the jaw portion pulls down. For the figure itself, I really like the sculpting and paint details on the headsculpt featured inside the helmet. I think Hasbro did a really nice job. The rest of the figure is draped in a robe like outfit which looks nicely detailed. You have an outer coat that is removable and while the sleeves of the coat are sculpted they match up pretty good with the outfit under the coat. Articulation is pretty basic. You get single-hinged elbows they do swivel and a waist swivel, but the lower portion of the figure is one solid piece of plastic making more a base than actual legs. This does make the figure stable so its not following over and also gives the figure a pretty hefty weight. The head does not move at all but you can have him bend forward or back at the waist area. The hands are gloved and the right hand is sculpted with a trigger finger for the blaster and the left one is a grip hand for the staff. You can put the staff and the pistol in either hand though. The belt on the figure is a separate piece but not removable. The brown harness on the chest is sculpted and then their is rope type thing that goes across the chest as well which is a separate piece attached to the figure. While the figure doesn't have a wide range of movement, I think Hasbro did a good job capturing the likeness of the character. It would be cool if Hasbro ended up doing Moloch's boss in 6" form but I don't really see that happening. This figure is sold as a Target exclusive which is available now and retails for $24.99. DPCI # is 087-16-0134. Check out more images for this figure below in our GALLERY!

MERCENARY: COILS O'DOOM The origins of the ADVENTURE TEAM date back to 1970 when the US Joint Chiefs of Staff began funding a secret project to train elite members of the US military in air, land and sea reconnaissance. This new team of mega-soldiers was given the code name "The Adventure Team". Each member was also given special hi-tech equipment (including vehicles) and they were trained to work alone in high pressure situations against various enemy forces... including M.A.R.S. Industries! Each single carded action figure features the highly articulated modern era sculpts with weapons and accessories for them to accomplish any mission! 2018 GIJCC: 3 3/4" Ninja Force Zartan with Cold Slither Cycle ZARTAN, the notorious master of disguise rides his COLD SLITHER CYCLE through the shadows of the darkened city.

  19. Hasbro yesterday during their earnings call said they would be seeing a 12% drop in third-quarter sales due to in large part the closure of Toys R' Us. In response to this Hasbro will be laying off 10% of its 5,400 global workforce which is said to save the company somewhere in the neighborhood of $40 million in annual costs. Hasbro is also having to re-examine how they send products out to retailers such as shipping out smaller quantities to more retailers than what they had become used to while dealing with Toys R' Us. This year Hasbro has added 10,000 new places to sell its products at. Despite that places like Amazon insist upon smaller quantities and selling through that inventory before they are willing to order more products, and places like Wal-Mart, Target and Walgreens wait much closer to the holiday season before placing larger orders because they don't allocate the larger shelf space until late in the year since toys aren't the only things they sell. Toys R' Us would order holiday product months in advance in order to keep warehouses fully stocked for the holiday demand. Hasbro plans on opening a new warehouse in the Midwestern U.S. next year that they will share with some retailers in order to try and cut down on delivery times of their products. Hasbro's Chief Executive Brian Goldner said during the earnings call yesterday that they expect to continue feeling the effects of Toys R' Us closing for several more quarters. Source: WSJ
  20. According to WJAR NBC 10, a local Providence news station, Hasbro is looking to layoff some of their employees in the near future. While the exact number of people Hasbro plans to layoff is unknown at this time, in a statement Hasbro said it would only result in "a single digit percentage" job loss of their global workforce. The reason given for the pending layoffs is so they can continue to modernize their workforce for the future. "As part of Hasbro’s ongoing transformation we continue to make meaningful organizational changes. While some of these changes are difficult, we must ensure we have the right teams in place with the right capabilities to lead the company into the future. We continue to add new capabilities based on our understanding of the consumer and how our retailers are going to market, while evolving the way we organize our business across our Brand Blueprint." According to University of Rhode Island economics professor Leonard Lardaro, these will be permanent type job losses dealing with those who have job skills that are no longer in demand as Hasbro plans for the future of the business. “Those are permanent job losses,” he said. “People who have skills are out in the labor market and although they’re skilled at what they were doing, they might not have the right skills for what’s currently in demand.” . Hasbro's rival Mattel laid off 2,200 employees this past summer as the toy industry continues to deal with the loss of mega-toy retailer Toys R' Us.
  21. Hasbro this weekend during the The Official Power Morphicon Convention in Anaheim, California revealed the White Ranger which is the first figure in their new 6" collector oriented line being called Power Rangers: The Lightning Collection. The figures in this line will be incorporating Hasbro's Photoreal digital face printing technology which we have seen them use recently with their 6" Star Wars: Black Series figrues. The White Ranger figure is based on Tommy Oliver's likeness which seems pretty dead on from what we see here. The figures in this line will start out costing $20 each and incorporate things like helmeted and un-helmeted heads, multiple pairs of hands and signature weapons like the White Ranger's Saba sword. Look for these figures to start hitting shelves in Spring 2019. Check out images for the Power Rangers 6" Lightning Collection White Ranger figure below.
  22. Hasbro revealed at NYCC this week they will be releasing a Star Wars: The Vintage Collection 41st Elite Corps Figure 3.75" figure as an online etailer exclusive. The figure seems to incorporate one of the less popular Clone Trooper molds but does have a removable helment and weapon. Look for it to cost $12.99 and be available in the Spring. Check out images below.
  23. Newly announced today is a 6" Black Series Doctor Aphra. Also announced is 000 and BT-1 which are Aphra's Assassin Droids. 6" Clone Wars Rocket Trooper Gamestop with new triangle figure stand. More 6" prequel figures are in the works. Black Series General Kenobi is a Walgreens exclusive. Wethead Luke will be Target Exclusive. Luke in Stormtrooper Disguise with a wet head after being in the Trash Compactor in ANH. The Vintage Collection Haslab Jabba Sail Barge Package will show an image of the Barge hovering over the Sarlac Pit. 3.75" Vintage Collection Luke Skywalker Crait announced from Last Jedi. 8 more to reveal this year which will all be Original Trilogy. More to come in 2019 as well. They are also re-releasing several older Vintage Collection figure (Han, Luke Leia, Vader and Boba Fett) overseas and at select etailers for those who may have missed out before. They are also going to be doing a Vintage Collection Rogue One Assault Tank Commander for Spring 2019. Vintage Collection Gamorrean Guard re-iessue will be a shared exclusive. More vehicles for Vintage Collection are coming. Another Haslab project for Star Wars down the road is a good bet. Not change on where the Haslab Sail Barge will be released outside the US but still working on those details.
  24. https://jediinsider.com/274-20119 Here's a look at the SYFY panel w/ Steve Evans (Design Director) and Patrick Schneider (Senior Global Brand Manager) from Hasbro, where they reveal the packaging for Black Series - Archive series, take a look at the Vintage Collection Rogue One Imperial Combat Assault Tank, they also reveal the Vintage Collection Han Solo (Stormtrooper Disguise) and Vintage Collection 41st Elite Corps Trooper
  25. https://jediinsider.com/8-20112 Earlier this year, at SDCC, Hasbro announced they would rerelease some earlier, and harder to get, Black Series figures under the "Archive" banner; including Boba Fett, BossK, IG-88, Luke Skywalker (X-Wing Pilot); now we have a look at the packaging, thanks to this image Steve from Hasbro shared on Instagram. (Click to see full image) They should be available by the end of the year.
