Welcome back Rebelscum! Check out a roundtable interview we are thankful to have been a part of with Jing and Chris from Hasbro Pulse, as well as our new friends from Jedi News, Adventures in Collecting Podcast, Geekstronomy, Star Wars Collector, The Force Guide. As is always the case, the Hasbro team couldn't share anything that hasn't previously been announced, but that didn't stop us from getting some updates.
During the interview Chris and Jing talked about: -Figure production schedules and working with streaming shows vs movies -Plastic-free packaging issues -Characters being produced in one scale, but not another -The process of producing the same character in different scales -The upcoming TVC AT-ST and Chewbacca set -Rollercoaster price increases and variations -Black Series vehicles -Surprise pre-order fulfillment -POTF2 Retro Collection??? -Issues with retailer-specific exclusives
We enjoy participating in these interviews because it gives us a peek into the thought process and the nitty gritty that goes into producing the toys we love. What kind of questions would you have for future interviews with the Hasbro team? Let us know in the forums!
