For their exciting product line, outstanding quality, and unparalleled service to the collecting community, Rebelscum is proud to name Hasbro as Star Wars Licensee of the Year 2008.
For the fifth year in a row Rebelscum has given top honors to the one Star Wars licensee that stands out among its peers. This year's honors go to Hasbro based on the following criteria:
- Development of a high quality, collectible and desirable product line.
- Proven track record of listening to, and caring about what collectors think.
- A demonstrated understanding of the importance of working with on-line websites that serve the collecting community, of which Rebelscum.com is a part.
- Ability to make products available to collectors without resorting to the secondary market.
For the first time, Rebelscum has awarded the award to the same company for two consecutive years. Hasbro joins previous winners Master Replicas (2004), Gentle Giant Studios (2005), and Sideshow Collectibles (2006) in demonstrating a clear appreciation for both collectors and the collecting press.
On behalf of the entire Rebelscum staff and readership we congratulate Hasbro and wish them continued success in the years to come.
