Hasbro Announces Cancelation Of 2013 Droid Factory Line!!!
Jay Cochran - January 07, 2013

Hasbro has issued the following statement to us in regards to the 2013 Droid Factory line that was originally announced last summer at the Celebration Convention.

The Droid Factory line which was slated for spring 2013 has been cancelled. We were very excited about this line at its inception and wanted to give fans an early sneak peek when we unveiled it at Star Wars Celebration this past summer. Unfortunately since then, through the course of development, we realized that the price would have to be increased and we felt that the value we were adding with the droid parts was no longer substantiated.

As a result, we have decided to rework our 3.75” figure program to create a line that is on-par with the quality and pricing of the Vintage Collection. Many of the figures intended for the Droid Factory will become available in this new line in the fall. We’ll be able to share more news on this at Toy Fair.

We also recognize that there were many hard-to-find Vintage Collection figures in 2012. So, as we shared last December, we will re-release many of these figures this spring before the Vintage Collection goes on hiatus, making way for some of the most exciting new initiatives for SW collectors in years.

Thank you for your continued support and enthusiasm.

If anyone in Canada can pick me up 3 of the 501st jet pack trooper. The bone heads at Hasbro said the Clone Wars figures on the Yoda card will not be sold in the US.

The pescimist in me says Hasbro/Kenner planned it this way ever since the POTF2 figures. Do the bare bones articulation first which everyone will buy anyway because there was a Star Wars drought for a good ten years after the vintage line (you want me to believe they couldn't give their figures... read more

[quote name='CLAM' timestamp='1360717462' post='16785418'] Hasbro needs to get with the program and adopt the articulation style of their other 3 3/4 lines for Star Wars. GiJoe and MU are so much better than Star Wars. I cringe everytime I see the t-crotch It's... read more
