Well fellow STAR WARS: Collectors there has been a lot of exciting Hasbro news out there for us the past couple weeks. No, the Dash Rendar and Willrow Hood Black series Figures are not being released. I know us here at That Hashtag Show would love that release. But the real news is that a couple of hot items that collectors have been wanting are now available for pre-order. That’s right Hasbro has finally given us the Black Series life-sized Boba Fett Helmet that we have been waiting for! But that’s not all! We are also getting a second chance to get our hands on the Retro Collection line that was first released at Target earlier this year.
Hasbro Black Series Helmets
Hasbro’s Black Series line has been going strong for years not only with figures but with their Helmets as well. They have given us such a great lineup of helmets from some of our favorite characters Kylo Ren, Poe Dameron, Luke Skywalker and even Darth Vader. But this year Hasbro may have announced their most popular helmet to date, Boba Fett.
Commemorate Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back with The Black Series Boba Fett Premium Electronic Helmet! This roleplay item with premium deco, realistic detail, and movie-inspired design is a great addition to any Star Wars fan’s collection. Featuring a flip-down viewfinder with flashing LED lights and an illuminated rangefinder HUD, fans can imagine what it was like for the famous bounty hunter to suit up for galactic action!
Hasbro The Retro Collection
If you were on of the many fans that missed out on the Retro Collection at Target in what seemed like a very weak release, don’t fear you now have a chance again to get you hands on this set.
Go old school with the Star Wars the Retro Collection Action Figures Wave 1 Case! 6 of the original 12 Star Wars action figures from 1978 are back almost exactly like you remember them. Luke and Darth Vader retain their retractable telescoping lightsabers. Han, Leia, Chewbacca, and the Stormtrooper include their blaster pistols. And for the most discriminating of fans, each figure is just a smidgen different in size and detail that with a little study, you’ll be able to tell them from the original releases.
The prices very on this set but it looks like it will cost just over $75 with shipping on most pages. You can pre-order this set from great small business vendors like TRG Toys & Collectibles or retailers like Entertainment Earth by clicking on their names.
We want to hear from you.
