During the Star Wars livestream earlier in the week, the brand team revealed a ton of new figures. Oddly enough, all but one had no pre-order information attached to it. Hasbro’s PR reps reached out to clarify, and it looks like Pre-Orders are going away for at least Star Wars, and at least for now.
Following the Star Wars fanstream on Wednesday, we wanted to clarify the availability of the revealed items. We’ve heard your earlier feedback on the number of pre-orders, and we have decided to adjust the number of them in the new year. With the exception of the Star Wars: The Black Series Phase II Clone Commander Jesse, all of the items revealed on February 1 will not be going on pre-order. The products will be available on shelf and online during the scheduled dates. Please see those dates below and note they are subject to change.
Is this a new trend for the industry, or just specific to Star Wars / Lucasfilm Hasbro items? Time will tell!
