I must give Hasbro some restraint for not flooding us with product that gluts shelves the way they have so often in the past. Kudos for not making us suffer through a month of packing shelves and then a year of not having that product sell through.
But now the show is here and I wanna buy some damned toys! LEGO has had toys out forever. Jakks and their giant, inexpensive figures has done a bang-up job getting Rebels products on shelves just before the series launch. Hasbro... well, if you like little green army men, they did that. If you want the Inquisitor's lightsaber, they at least succeeded there. If you want a mask of Ezra's stolen Imperial helmet, they have you covered. But action figures, their bread and butter? Not really.
So far, in my travels I've seen the following:
- Ezra, Kanan, holographic Obi-Wan boxed set, TRU-exclusive, $20 for 2 $6 figures and a holographic figure with 1 joint worth even less.
- TIE Prototype, just one, yesterday, this vehicle hasn't appeared on the show yet.
THAT'S IT!!! This stuff isn't even on Amazon or HasbroToyShop. Come on, Hasbro, it's time to push the line out the door. I'm willing to buy Saga Legends, Mission Series, and the other 2 vehicles, let's go.
