Shadow Scout 22

The Shadow Squadron has landed! Hasbro has repainted their 6 Inch Black Series Troopers, this time into a dark themed set featuring the Sand/Stormtrooper and the Biker Scout. Officially named the Shadow Stormtrooper Commander and the Shadow Scout, they are basic repaints with no new molding in a black and grey-blue tone. If a repaint is going to be done Troopers are the way to go IMO – you don’t need them – but if they are cool it makes sense and can work on the shelf. This set will be a Diamond exclusive in the UK, and is a Target exclusive in the US. It was available briefly online via Target.com, and should be hitting stores soon. Read on to check our thoughts and over 80 pics of these dark troopers in action!

Visonaries Logo

This is a pretty cool revelation. My buddy SilverOptimus (you may know him from our sister site TFW2005.com) sent me a message showing that Hasbro has applied and/or reapplied for a bunch of trademarks related to the 80;s toy line, Visionaries. Some of these trademarks were filed/refiled as recently as this week. Visionaries: Knights of the Magical Light was a fantastic toy line from the late 1980′s. Fans will remember the figures for having holographic stickers on their chest and weapons. It was a short lived, but fondly remembered, toy line. Here are the related listings that have been filed:

You’ll notice the same thing a few different times. Some are marked for Action Figures. Others are marked for other merchandise as well as film and TV applications. The trademarks originate from a few years ago, but were recently re-upped so Hasbro could retain these specific names and applications, while a few others related to the brand (not listed above) were allowed to expire last year. We’ll keep our eyes peeled and follow up if and when new info becomes available. Click the links above for more info on each application.

Marvel Legends 3 Pack Found

A post over on Facebook gives us word that the Marvel Legends Infinite Series 3-Pack has made its way to retail. This was found at a Target in Miami, Florida. The 3-Pack contains:

  • Ms. Marvel
  • Captain America
  • Radioactive Man

Black Series Darth Vader 53

Darth Vader. The one everyone’s been waiting for. Black Series Darth Vader is here and ready to spread the dark side to your galactic shelves. When he was first seen it was a love/hate situation – it had all the key elements, some thought it went a bit overboard on the soft goods tho. I was in the middle and wanted to wait until I had it in hand to judge. Well, I do so let’s take a look after the break courtesy of site sponsor Entertainment Earth!

Black Series Luke Jedi 21

The Toyark’s Black Series galleries continue today with Wave 5 Luke Skywalker! Luke sports his Return of the Jedi look in this release, featuring the black outfit and glove. A very basic figure, but an iconic look that deserves repping in the line. He comes with his (green) lightsaber, a belt to attach it to, gloved right hand, and a swappable chest plate (shirt opened/closed). This was one of my favorite figs as a kid in 3.75 scale, so I was hyped to get him. Paired with Vader it’s a perfect set. Check out over 40 shots of him in action after the break courtesy of site sponsor Entertainment Earth!

Black Series Sandtrooper 12

Black Series Wave 5 is finally here! Well, it’s been out a bit, but only at Walgreens since Hasbro shipped them along with their white Boba exclusive. They are now hitting all the other retailers and Toyark has theirs in hand ready for gallery action. Wave 5, aka 2014 Wave 3, which resets the numbering system too, features a Sandtrooper with black shoulder pauldron, Chewbacca, Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker from Return of the Jedi. A very very solid line up. This wave is what Black Series is all about in my opinion. We are starting with #01 Sandtrooper today, so read on for our thoughts and shots courtesy of site sponsor Entertainment Earth!
