Title: New Hasbro figures at Superstore - These are not the figures we are looking for
Post by: General Brashin on May 10, 2020, 02:23:34 PM
While at Superstore I took a look at the toy aisles and there were 2 new Hasbro figure lines out. Unfortunately they're both budget lines.

There were 3.75" zero-articulation figurines: Luke, Vader, FO Stormie and Chewbacca - 5.98. Made in Vietnam with a date code of 93651. Yakface has a report of these being found in the US in November https://yakfaceforums.com/main/2019/11/26/articulation-free-figures-at-five-below/ (https://yakfaceforums.com/main/2019/11/26/articulation-free-figures-at-five-below/).

There were also 9.5" Olympus 4POA figures: Luke, Vader, FO Stormie and Kylo Ren - 12.98. Again made in Vietnam with a date code of 00381. JTA has a post about these figures https://www.jeditemplearchives.com/2020-03-21-hasbro-introduces-yet-another-new-star-wars-action-figure-line/ (https://www.jeditemplearchives.com/2020-03-21-hasbro-introduces-yet-another-new-star-wars-action-figure-line/).

Seen the first ones at EBGames last February. Stuff for the trash can. I cannot believe Hasbro would release such crappy low quality toys. It shows they are shooting everywhere without any market plan. They just want to invade the toys aisles with all size of product to make sure it doesn't leave any room for competition. This is ridiculous...  ::)

Those zero articulation things look like cheap bootleg crap.  Hasbro should be embarrassed to put their name on those.
