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.

Pete Vilmur | February 14, 2010

At this weekend’s Toy Fair in New York, Hasbro unveiled their 2010 line of Star Wars vehicles and figure/vehicle combos. Some great entries from the Clone Wars series here, such as Cad Bane with Pirate Bike and Mando with Speeder Bike, as well as some great classic vehicles like the Bespin Cloud Car. But that’s just for starters — follow this link to the full set of new Star Wars vehicles slated for 2010, including some bigger pics of the Super Deluxe AT-AT.

Hasbro’s Mega AT-AT Unveiled!

Pete Vilmur | February 13, 2010

Today at the 2010 New York Toy Fair, Hasbro unveiled the heavily-rumored (and consequently highly-anticipated) all new AT-AT vehicle for their 3.75-inch action figure line, which will retail for about $100 on August 1. Check out the images and description below, and get the full roster of Hasbro toys announced at Toy Fair after the jump (stay tuned for more Toy Fair coverage as we report from the event starting this weekend in New York)!

Star Wars AT-AT
(Approximate Retail Value: $99.99; Ages: 5 & up)
In space, size does matter, and Hasbro certainly kept that in mind when creating its all-new, highly detailed Star Wars AT-AT. The AT-AT (All Terrain Armored Transport) played a significant role in the Empire’s military assault in The Empire Strikes Back, and it will play an equally important role in every fan’s toy collection this year! Measuring more than 24 inches tall, nearly 28 inches long, and 12 inches wide, this colossal vehicle holds up to 20 Star Wars figures — 6 of which can fit in its head alone! — and includes so many play and electronic features true to its on-screen counterpart that it’s hard to believe! From the zip-line in its body and articulated legs for superb poseability, to its LED lights and authentic movie sounds and phrases, this is the must-have addition for Star Wars fans of all ages. Includes a 3.75 inch AT-AT driver action figure and a pop-out speeder bike.

Comic Images’ booth at Toy Fair had a couple surprises for 2009, including the plush Jawa with glow-in-the-dark eyes (that vaguely resembles the classic and super-rare 1978 Regal version), plush Maul, and Vader plush backpack. We find the fuzzy Chewbacca slippers strangely irresistible…
