  1. It's Wednesday, and you know what that means... ToyFarce review! This week, we're having a look at the Star Wars: The Black Series Holiday Edition figures from 2022 from Hasbro. Once again, each figure was exclusive to a different store, which made it really easy and fun for collectors outside the US to acquire them...NOT. This review should have been posted around Christmas, right after the Holiday Edition 2020 figures review (which can be found here), but someone (*cough* Walmart *cough*) decided that the last figure would be shipped later in January... Right in time for Christmas...ish! First, the First Order Stormtrooper, which was exclusive to Amazon and was the first one I received (I'll go through them in the order I got them). This First Order Stormtrooper is pretty much more of the same of the 2020 wave, a peppermint-green Stormtrooper, with Christmas-themed decos. He comes with a blaster rifle and a Holiday-themed mouse droid. A fun novelty item (as they all are, really), but kind of a let down since we already got a similar First Order Stormtrooper in the 2020 wave. The second one to arrive was the Hasbro Pulse exclusive Phase II Clone Trooper, with his gingerbread man colored armor. I know I just said that we already had Stormtroopers in the first wave, but this one is actually pretty fun. Gingerbread colors, with a bow tie and and buttons painted on his chest armor, and some parts painted white like if he had cream filling inside. He comes with a blaster and a Christmas Porg, dressed in red and white. The "Abominable Snowman" Wookiee was a Gamestop Exclusive, and is where the fun started, with other characters than Stormtroopers getting the Holiday treatment. This big white Wookiee reminds me of the Rankin/Bass Abominable Snowmonster of the North, all white, with blue highlights (lips, hands and feet) and red harness. The Abominable Wookiee comes with his bowcaster and a white Porg with a scarf. The Protocol Droid was the easiest one to get, as he came through 'Fan channel', I got it from BigBadToyStore. A pretty basic Protocol Droid figure, all in red, white and green, with a holiday scarf. He comes with a holiday-themed BD Droid. They could have added a christmas hat or something, so that it didn't look like a straight repaint, but oh well... The Mandalorian Warrior, a Target exclusive, might be my favorite from this wave. He has ugly christmas sweater designs on his chest armor, and just looks really cool, with the bright colors. Red and green really suit a Mandalorian well, apparently (I am convinced any color combinations would look good on a Mandalorian armor, at this point). He comes with a winter colored Bogling and his Amban phase-pulse rifle. And finally, the one that took ages to arrive thanks to Walmart pushing the delivery to mid-January, the Walmart Exclusive Scout Trooper! Another fun one, with his red armor, and Grogu ugly christmas sweater design on his chest. He comes with a mini gun, and a Christmas bag that hides a Grogu (I would enjoy it more if it didn't remind me of the Scout trooper punching Grogu through the bag in that Mandalorian episode...). This completes this second wave of 6 Star Wars: The Black Series Holiday Edition figures... ... BUT WAIT, THERE'S MORE! Since Halloween was 3 months ago, and those figures shipped last month, I figured I would add them to this review. The 2 Halloween edition figures were also exclusives to different stores, but ended up being available in more places after a while. The Halloween Edition Clone Trooper was exclusive to Target, and is a really fun figure. The idea of having the armor all in black with a skeleton painted in neon green on it was brilliant and the results looks pretty great on a shelf. He came with plastic-free packaging, and even had Halloween themed, orange paper hiding the figure. He comes with a chest that hides beskar painted to look like chocolate bars, and a vampire Porg, painted like Dracula. More of this, please! The Halloween Edition Wookiee was a Walmart exclusive (but ended up as 'Fan channel' soon after. Maybe they realized Halloween had passed already and tried to make them more easily available afterwards). This Wookiee has pointy ears (like a cat!) and the Black Krrsantan/Road Warriors chest armor with spiky shoulders (WHAT A RUSH!). He comes with a werewolf Bogling (wereBogling?) and a Halloween-themed orange cantomo (Ingenuous!) with beskar chocolate bars inside. That's it for the Holiday-themed figures of 2022! Which one was your favorite? Let us know in the comments! More news at 11:00... Happy Halloween/Merry Christmas in January!
  2. This week was the 9th week of Hasbro's Star Wars team "Bring Home The Galaxy" announcements, and among them, we got yet another batch of Boba Fett repaints. This time, they were Star Wars: The Vintage Collection figures, with a 'comic art edition' and a 'vintage comic art edition'. With the success of those, ToyFarce heard that the next batch is already in development, with the color patterns decided by... a kindergarten class? It was thursday morning, in a nice Kindergarten in Missouri, when the teacher gave the children their next assignments: "Today, we are going to color Boba Fett pictures, and the best ones will be made into action figures by Hasbro!", she said. "Yaaaay!" said the children. We managed to get a few descriptions from the children: "I am going to paint him yellow and green, because I love corn!" said Dylan, sitting in the front of the class. "I wanted to color him in purple, but Charlie told me at recess that I should add some green too." explained Jimmy, 3. "I colored him all red so he looks like a big apple!" said Lara, 4 years old. "All the pencils were already borrowed, so I picked the only ones that were available. I didn't really care." told Logan. What colors would you like to see your Star Wars TVC: Boba Fett? Let us know in the comments! More news at 11:00... You get a Boba Fett! You get a Boba Fett! *ToyFarce News is parody news for laughs and not meant to be taken seriously!
  3. Over the last couple of years, Hasbro has added holiday-centric figure waves to its Star Wars: The Black Series line. First, a Christmas wave of Stomrtooper was released in 2020. In 2021... they forgot. Then, in 2022, we got 2 Halloween-themed figures, along with 6 new Christmas-themed figures. And just when we thought that it was all for this year, we managed to get our hands on a leak for an upcoming holiday release... Star Wars: The Black Series - Thanksgiving Edition! The Thanksgiving Edition wave will include 2 figures: Darth Vader as a pilgrim, and Jedi Master Plo Koon as... the Thanksgiving turkey! Vader will come with a Porg turkey (Porgkey?), while Plo Koon will have a pumpkin pie, and a turkey carving set, in order to operate on his turkey head. Since the Star Wars: The Black Series Halloween edition figures were not available for Halloween but closer to Thanksgiving, and the Christmas figures started to be available around Halloween, we estimate that the Thanksgiving edition figures should be available around Christmas or maybe Valentine's day. More news at 11:00... I find your lack of yams disturbing. *ToyFarce News is parody news for laughs and not meant to be taken seriously!
  4. Imagine that... A huge, long Spaceball 1 spaceship, that actually could transform into Mega Maid. How FAST would you support that Haslab project? This would be a 100% done deal, and the campaign would reach its goal within minutes (unlike the previous 2...). A chance at redemption? Yes, we are aware that the movie Spaceballs was allowed to be made under the condition that no merchandise was ever made for it (Thanks, George...), but with Disney buying every studio and franchises left and right, it won't be long until Spaceballs falls under the Disney umbrella, and is made canon as part of the Star Wars universe! (One can dream, right?). If that happens, a Haslab of the Spaceball 1 ship could definitely happen! It could even be a Transformers Haslab project, since it transforms into the atmosphere-sucking Mega Maid! We get to see the transformation in the movie, so the engineering is already there! A Transformers x Star Wars Collaboration Haslab campaign? Sign me in! More news at 11:00... No sir, I didn't see you playing with your dolls again. *ToyFarce News is parody news for laughs and not meant to be taken seriously!
