NYCC 2015: Hasbro’s Sneak Peek At Star Wars, Marvel, Transformers And More

Last night Hasbro held it’s annual “Twas the night before NYCC” party and I was out to get a sneak peek at all of the new additions to the STAR WARS, MARVEL and TRANSFORMERS lines, as well as all of their current products. There were a ton of cool toys to be seen as 2016 looks to be another year of awesome Hasbro figures but all eyes were on the next line of THE FORCE AWAKENS figures which included our first look at the Black Series Han Solo. It was definitely exciting to see as a fan and get that idea of where we are headed with some of our favorite toy lines. You can check out all of the pics below and stay tuned for updates and plenty of pics from NYCC 2015 here and on my Instagram page.

What Exclusives To Be On The Lookout For At NYYC 2015

“It’s time! It’s time! NYCC is upon us!”

As those words ring through my brain, I sit here thinking about how fun and hectic the next several days will be as New York Comic Con descends upon the city that never sleeps. Being an east coast guy and never having made the pilgrimage to San Diego, this is what I consider “Comic-Con”.

Over the years, the show at the Javitts center has grown to an almost nauseating size as enormous crowds will flock into the city and do everything they can to keep me from getting my hands on the exclusives I need in my life. It’s always tough and there are always items I miss out on but with proper planning we should all be able to get our hands on some cool exclusives.

With that said, I always want to try and do my part by helping point out some of what I consider the best NYCC exclusives and hopefully show you exactly how and where to pick these beauties up. This year seems to be lacking a little as a few companies who normally have NYCC exclusives are nowhere to be seen but there are still some cool items nonetheless. Let’s take a look at some of the best of what this year has to offer:

FUNKO EXCLUSIVES

This is a pretty big one. Funky items are always sought after at NYCC and if you’re looking for some of the most exclusive from the FUNKO booth itself, there are a few changes this year. basically, here is how it will go:

How do I get in line?

You will need a ticket to get in line for the Funko booth!

Tickets for the Funko booth will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis in Hall 1C at 11:00 AM and 2:30 PM each day. Once you have a ticket, you are eligible to get in line to shop at the Funko booth, which you can find at Booth #722.

In other words, you can’t get in line for the Funko booth without a ticket! This includes NYCC VIP badge-holders!

The queue for our ticket line is up to the discretion of NYCC. It is our understanding that the hall needs to be emptied before we can allow a line to form. However, whether or not lines form before 11 AM is beyond our control and will be determined by NYCC.

Tickets are valid for that day and time only. We will not honor late ticket-holders or tickets from previous days.

How is the booth going to run this year?

We understand it is frustrating to wait in a long line!

In an effort to streamline the process and keep the line moving quickly, we are utilizing an order sheet system. Everyone who receives a ticket for the booth will also receive an order sheet. You will mark each item you want on this sheet. When you reach check-out, a Funko booth worker will take your order sheet and retrieve all the items you have marked that are still available.

Is there a limit?

There will be a strict limit of one of each item per customer.

What if I have other people in my group (children, friends, etc.)?

Each member of your group must have their own ticket, completed order form, and be present at check-out. One person may pay for all the orders, but everyone must be present.

Will vendors be limited?

Yes. Attendees with “Exhibitor” badges will not be able to receive a ticket at 11:00 AM. If you have an “Exhibitor” badge, you may go to Hall 1C at 2:30 PM to try for a ticket.

If I fill out an order sheet, am I guaranteed to get everything I want?

Filling out an order sheet does not guarantee your order. Items may sell out before you reach the front of the line. Your order will be fulfilled based on availability at the time you reach check out.

Will other retailers be sharing any of these items?

Certain pieces will be available at other retailers in limited quantities.

These retailers will make their own announcements regarding what pieces they will have in stock.

How much are the exclusives?

Bluefin Introduces All New Samurai STAR WARS Figures From Tamashi Nations

Bluefun/Tamashi Nations has been wowing us for years now with their stylized figures and anime style versions of some of fandom’s biggest franchises. Most recently, they masterfully blended the art of the samurai with STAR WARS when they gave us Samurai Darth Vader and Samurai Stormtroopers. Thankfully that collaboration was just the begging as Bluefun has announced they will be bringing new characters into their world of Samurai themed STAR WARS figures. Next up we will see Ronin Boba Fett, Daisho Darth Vader and Akazonae Royal Guard joining the ranks of the Samurai line.

You can check out the official press release below as well as pics of all of the awesome new figures that will be hitting shelves later this year and early 2016.

BLUEFIN ANNOUNCES EXCITING NEW ADDITIONS TO MEISHO MOVIE REALIZATION STAR WARS LINE OF FIGURES FROM TAMASHII NATIONS

Highly Detailed Figures Incorporate Japanese Samurai Aesthetic; Pre-Orders Open For “Ronin” Boba Fett, “Daisho” Darth Vader, “Teppou Ashigaru” Sandtrooper and “Akazonae” Imperial Guard; “Taisho” Darth Vader And “Ashigaru” Stormtrooper Figures

Available Now!!

Irvine, CA, September 21, 2015 – Bluefin, the leading North American distributor of toys, collectibles, and hobby merchandise from Japan, Hong Kong and more, offers Star Wars fans and ardent collectors something unique as it highlights a variety of super-detailed figures from the Meisho Movie Realization Star Wars line by Tamashii Nations.

The Meisho Movie Realization Star Wars line pays homage to the Samurai aesthetic and artfully reimagines several Empire characters from the legendary films with feudal-style Japanese armor and weaponry. Each figure is exquisitely crafted by some of Japan’s top sculpting talent and constructed with hybrid materials featuring up to 15 points of articulation to create endless posing possibilities.

The newest addition to the Meisho Movie Realization Star Wars product line is the “Ronin” Boba Fett, which debuts in December and depicts the intergalactic bounty hunter as a “lordless” Samurai warrior via the sculpting talent of artists Takeyuki Takeya and Junichi Taniguchi. The “Daisho” Darth Vader depicts the Dark Sith Lord as a Samurai General clad in sinister black “Death Star” armor and will debut in January 2016. It will be followed in May 2016 by the imposing Akazonae Royal Guard, outfitted with a Japanese-style katana and pike and resplendent in beautiful crimson-robed armor. Pre-orders for these figures are available now.

Fans that want to dive into the Meisho Movie Realization Star Wars line immediately can select from a trio of figures – available now – that includes the “Ashigaru” Stormtrooper, and the Samurai General “Taisho” Darth Vader. Each is clad in a unique set of armor and comes with an array of weapons and other accessories.

Meisho Movie Realization “Ronin” Boba Fett

Height: Approx. 6 3/4 inches; MSRP: $89.99

Available December!

Everyone’s favorite bounty hunter goes medieval! Boba Fett joins the Meisho Movie realization series in a spectacular feudal Japan aesthetic, appropriately portrayed as a lord-less “Ronin” Samurai via the sculpting talent of artists Takeyuki Takeya and Junichi Taniguchi. In addition to his EE-3 rifle portrayed as an flint-lock style blaster, this deluxe figure set features an extensive array of accessories that includes a characteristic backpack missile that can be removed/attached, and a moveable helmet mounted scope. In addition to a short ninja-style katana and sheath, numerous ninja-style blade accessories that are also included can be subtly attached to shin and forearm area mounting points.

Meisho Movie Realization Samurai General “Daisho” Darth Vader

Height: Approx. 7 inches; MSRP: $89.99

Available: January 2016

The greatly popular Samurai General Darth Vader makes a comeback in an all new Death Star motif. Another stunningly unique artistic interpretation master crafted by acclaimed artist Takeya Takayuki, Darth Vader – Death Star Armor – has a revamped armor design. Most notable is the fearsome Death Star-style crest on the helmet and highly detailed chest plate pattern. Set includes interchangeable hands, gun (large, small), and katana sword (light saber and regular).

Meisho Movie Realization “Teppou Ashigaru” Sandtrooper

Height: Approx. 6 3/4 inches; MSRP: $89.99

Available: March 2016

The third figure to join this unique series is the artillery packed Teppo Ashigaru Sandtrooper! The Sandtrooper version comes with two gun powder type rifles and a Japanese katana sword ready for battle. A special backpack is designed with meticulous detail and finished with a rusty patina look. Flexible material makes posing the Sandtrooper holding a firearm a breeze. The set includes three sets of interchangeable hands, blaster rifles (small and large), a Japanese katana set, and backpack.

Meisho Movie Realization “Akazonae” Royal Guard

Height: Approx. 6 3/4 inches; MSRP: $89.99

Available: May 2016

The imposing crimson-robed Akazonae Royal Guards are next to join the Samurai General’s side in this high-quality Japanese feudal take on the Star Wars legacy. The Akazonae Royal Guard comes wielding not only the iconic force pike-esque staff, but a traditional Japanese-style katana as well. The front robe pieces are removable, giving the option of displaying the Guard in a samurai armor fashion. For further nuanced posing, the Akazonae Royal Guard set also includes interchangeable hands. The unique use of “wa,” Japanese style also makes for a one of a kind sculpt design that fans cannot find anywhere else.

The following Meisho Movie Realization Star Wars products are available now through various retailers:

Meisho Movie Realization Samurai General “Taisho” Darth Vader

Height: Approx. 7 inches; MSRP: $92.99

An exquisitely rendered figure of Darth Vader portrayed as a Japan feudal era Samurai General. A unique artistic interpretation master crafted by acclaimed artist Takeya Takayuki, this original stylized figure pays homage to the Japan aesthetic and film influences on Star Wars. Tamashii Nations’ Movie Realization brand takes the theme of movies and infuses that concept into high quality figures. And the secret ingredient? All figures have an added pinch of “wa” (Japanese style) that makes for a one and only, unique design – from the tip of his sharp lightsaber-turned-katana to the meticulously sculpted Samurai-esque armor. Look closely at Vader’s helmet and one will notice the Imperial insignia arranged in elaborate “wa” style. Set includes two interchangeable lightsaber parts and 3 sets of interchangeable hands perfect for posing the Samurai-styled Sith Lord as he manipulates the Force.

The Star Wars Smuggler’s Bounty Subscription Box Is A Must Have For Fans

After the very costly Force Friday that will probably shave a few years off of my children’s college fund, I thought I was all STAR WARS’d out. I was wrong.

Unfortunately for my wallet and my soul, the unholy combination of Funko and Star Wars have come together to create its own subscription box in an attempt to become the single most addictive thing fans have seen in years. For the price of $25 every other month, subscribers will receive $50 worth of exclusive Star Wars goodies, including special T-Shirts and of course, rare Funko Pop figures. For an upfront yearly fee of $150 ($25 x 6 boxes) you’ll also snag a special annual reward once your first year is done.

Subscription boxes have been all the rage amongst fans for the past few years and have provided some pretty cool exclusives to chase after. With the launch of this Star Wars themed one it looks like we may see the most popular one to date, especially with the new film scheduled to hit theaters on December 18th.

You can check out all the details on the Smuggler’s Bounty signup page and you can believe I’ll be unboxing the first one when it arrives in November!
