This weekend in Mexico City, Mexico, the Unboxing Toy Convention is taking place and Hasbro, as promised, is there with both special guests, a booth, a panel and exclusive reveals! A big thanks to TOY RUN listener and international correspondent Rafael Pineda for the images and information for the show!
Kenner designer Tim Effler held a panel prior to Hasbro’s.
Hasbro’s panel images!
Hasbro’s panel began with the show exclusives (which were the same as SDCC). Then they gave a recap of their SDCC reveals from a few weeks ago. Next Hasbro gave a behind the scenes look at the how they create a Black Series figure from concept to final product. And finally, they announced that all figures in The Vintage Collection will feature Photo Real head sculpts and provided two new reveals.
In The Vintage Collection, we will be getting a Photo Real Leia in Boushh Disguise and in The Black Series collection we will be getting a Han Solo as Mudtrooper!
Hasbro has released press photos of the two new figures on their channels.
This Boushh figure uses an existing body sculpt but has an all-new head featuring their new Photo Real face printing technology.
Hasbro’s Steve Evans has posted on Instagram has posted some additional details: “He has removable face mask so if you fancy army building you can. Simply pop on the mask!”
Again a huge thanks to Rafael for the correspondent coverage and streaming the panel directly to the TOY RUN Facebook page!
Until next time,
May the Figures be with you!
