Force Friday Countdown: Kenner STAR WARS Creature Cantina Action Playset - 105 Days to Go...

I don't know that there has been a single scene in a film outside of the STAR WARS Cantina (aside from JABBA's PALACE) that has spawned more individual action figures and hours of play. Even as a kid - in an era when STAR WARS (and action figures) was a new thing, the Cantina was legendary - despite only having seen it on the screen once or twice by the time the toys started coming out. The folks at Kenner jumped on it, releasing not one, but two playsets based on this "wretched hive of scum and villainy," both of which I had, and the second of which appears as today's entry into Hasbro's Force Friday Countdown Calendar.

Olaf & Sven Become FROZEN itty bittys - Coming to Hallmark Gold Crown Stores...

If you're a fan of Walt Disney Animation Studios' FROZEN, you're no doubt awaiting more information about the development of FROZEN 2. While that's a little hard to come by, more cool collectibles based in the world of Arendelle continue to be released, and perhaps none are cuter than the Hallmark itty bittys. While Anna and Elsa have been available for a little bit now, they'll soon have company, as their friends Sven and Olaf are making their way into Hallmark Gold Crown Stores later this month. The duo joins an exciting 2015 itty bittys lineup that features characters from Disney, along with STAR WARS, PEANUTS, MUPPETS, DC Comics and more (get a full checklist here).

Force Friday Countdown: Kenner STAR WARS Slave I and BOBA FETT - 106 Days to Go...

It was 35 years ago today, May 21, 1980, that STAR WARS EPISODE V: THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK hit theaters. Like many fans of the STAR WARS Saga, I hold EMPIRE (or, TESB) in high regard as my favorite - possibly because it's the first STAR WARS movie that I can remember seeing in the theater. That film also spawned some of my favorite toys not just from STAR WARS - but favorites, period - particularly those relating to Hoth and Bespin. From the latter, it was there that audiences first got a big-screen look at Bounty Hunter BOBA FETT, who had already made an appearance in the infamous STAR WARS HOLIDAY SPECIAL, and a parade of some sort. He, along with his ship, the SLAVE I, became instant favorites for kids like me, and over the years I've owned five incarnations of his famous ship.
