New Hasbro Action Figure Cards Preview

Pete Vilmur | February 16, 2010

While we were able to showcase one of Hasbro’s new action figure cardback mock-ups last month in our “2010 Star Wars Packaging Revealed” story, Hasbro did share two new mock-ups for both their Clone Wars and Saga Legends series in their Toy Fair presentation. These don’t include the lower “footer” graphic that will include the figure’s name and other info, but they do give a sense of how uniform the two series will look.

Hasbro’s New RC Flying Millennium Falcon

Pete Vilmur | February 15, 2010

Hasbro’s remote-controlled flying Millennium Falcon is one of those items that, if you didn’t see the photo, you’d have to ask, “What do they mean, flying? As you can see, however, Hasbro designers had the inspired idea to replace the saucer-shaped hull of the Falcon with a propeller to make it fly, although at a speed a few points behind lightspeed. Here’s Hasbro’s catalog copy for the RC Falcon, which will retail for about $49.99 this fall:

Han Solo once bragged that the Millennium Falcon made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs…and now fans can give it their best shot with the all-new Star Wars R/C MILLENNIUM FALCON! For the first time ever, the MILLENNIUM FALCON — the most beloved and iconic Star Wars ship of all-time — is available as an indoor flying remote control vehicle. Measuring an impressive 11 inches long and 8 inches wide, the largest flying Star Wars R/C to date is highly detailed, easy to fly and includes a charging controller and vehicle battery for up to five minutes of flying time.

Boba’s Back, and Hasbro’s Got Him

Pete Vilmur | February 14, 2010

Hasbro’s got at least three new entries for 2010 of the galaxy’s best bounty hunter, including the infamous rocket-firing Boba Fett figure that finally gets the spring-loaded missile that was promised in 1979 but not released!

Because of safety concerns in 1979, the spring-loaded missile that was to come with the mail-away Fett was permanently attached to the bounty-hunter’s backpack shortly before release, with the rocket-firing feature surviving on only a select few prototype examples that are now worth thousands of dollars.

This rocket-firing Fett, which appears almost identical to the 1979 vintage original, will be available as a mail-away with the purchase of five specially-marked Hasbro figures starting this fall. Also on deck is the Boba Fett role-play blaster and helmet (read more about the helmet here). Check out our Flickr series for more photos of the vintage-style Fett figure as well as larger pics of the blaster and helmet. Stay updated with the latest from Toy Fair with our full Flickr series here!
