For complete details check out Star Wars .com. I should hear back any day…yeah! Toy Fair took place last weekend in New York,
and wouldn’t you know it, our own Justin Bolger was there to show you all of the new
Star Wars goodies you have to look forward to in 2017. Ugh I’m so jealous of Justin right now. What’s up guys I’m here at New York Toy
Fair to check out all of Hasbro’s 40th Anniversary Star Wars collectibles. And to see what other Star Wars stuff we can
find on the floor These are brand new Star Wars, we call them
MyMojis They’re blind bagged which means you don’t
know what you’re going to get and they should be in stores within the next month or two. This is the Star Wars model kits from Bandai
The screws are molded in colors which makes them easy to put together because first of
all you don’t need glue but you also don’t need to paint them. Over here we have the movie realization line
and they are based on real Japanese characters so you can see the armor is faithfully recreated
And then you got the other line Threepio has been released already and Artoo
is coming out soon. These are our new Rogue One sets that will
be coming out March 1st. The Battle on Scarif and the Y-Wing Starfighter
Here we have some of our new 6 inch Black Series
The 40th Anniversary die-cast collection We upped our game another step with Poe Dameron’s
X-Wing pilot helmet. We’ve actually put surround sound into the
helmet itself And it actually fits my big head! The great thing about centerpiece is that
it acts essentially as a centerpiece to your collection. We’re still carrying on with Rogue One action
figures Star Wars is full of character, I don’t
think we’ll ever catch up. 40 years ago, a little company called Kenner
started making Star Wars figures They made 12, we’re kind of re creating
the display stand so you’ll be able to buy the early bird Legacy pack which is the reversible
stand and you can put all of your 6 inch action figures against it and recreate that original
12 lineup. Now there are a couple figures that we haven’t
produced which we’re revealing today The vinyl cape Jaw and also the Death Star
Commander as well. And these are on the original Kenner packaging
right? Exactly so yeah we went back and looked at
the original Kenner packaging We had to change the design a little bit to
allow it to hang but essentially we’ve taken a lot of inspiration from what it originally
was. That’s a wrap from Toy Fair, the ultimate
power in the toy universe. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for all the
awesome Star Wars stuff you saw today on the Star Wars Show. The captain says you are a friend, I will
not kill you. Alright guys, this week we are joined on the
couch by the Toy Hunter, pop culture expert and Star Wars supergeek, Jordan Hembrough. Thank you for joining us! Thank you! Thank you for having me. So what would you say was the toy that had
you hooked? The original Star Wars 12 Packs. I will never forget that I was in my classroom
in New Jersey at Jesse O George school in New Jersey and I see my dad come into the
classroom and he gave them to me in class and I opened them up and actually used them
for show and tell. Show and tell, here’s my Ben Kenobi! Wow, so what’s more fun for you? The hunt, or the find? The real joy in everything is connecting people
to their childhood I’ve actually seen grown men cry and say
“I haven’t had this since I was five!” And that brings up an interesting point about
Star Wars completists, people who buy everything. Can you tell me how things have changed this
time around? Toy companies are making stuff in such mass
quantities nowadays, looking forward the only way these new toys are going to be worth money
is if the companies really make a consorted effort to produce them in limited numbers
as well. Exclusives, you know you got your Comic Con
exclusives, you have your limited runs, stuff like that…is that worth holding onto in
boxes Yeah I think that stuff is always going to
go up in value because right off the that you have this perfect synergy of limited quantity
with very savvy marketing. And what happens is, people stand out in line
for these figures and they hold them and covet them and invariably they go up in value so
you have these compeltists who want everything. I gotta get everything. What kind of tips would you give Star Wars
collectors? The biggest thing I tell people is collect
what you love, don’t worry if it’s going to make you money or it’s going to be worth
money. Just really really collect what is important
to you and then when you get to that you find the vintage stuff. Try and collect it in box and trust me there
is a lot of box stuff still out there and just preserve it. Keep it in good condition and most importantly,
if you have it store it someplace safe. And I always tell people, your toys just like
everything else in life, just like your pets should live where you live. That’s what’s really going to give you
the most joy out of what you enjoy collecting. You said in an interview that no one ever
asks you for Jar Yeah nobody has ever asked me for a Jar Binks. Why? He’s awesome
Jar Jar kind of got a bad rep. And he has such fun merch. Jar Jar I’m going to say right now, Jar
Jar is really underappreciated. Let’s bring him back. Alright, should we do it right now? Alright we’re officially bringing him back
Cool, start your movement guys Jar Jar 2017 (Chopper beeps and boops)
Uh, I don’t know. (laser blasts, Chopper screams) That was a VERY toy filled episode. I know, its almost as if we planned it that
way. And since we spent the last 9 minutes or so
talking toys, I see no problem in keeping this Star Wars Toy Tacular going by asking
you, I just can’t believe we’re going with
Star Wars Toy Tacular Yeah, Toy Yoda Thon didn’t get approved. What! Who didn’t like that? That is gold. People I guess… But we want to know what your favorite Star
Wars Toy of all-time is. I had a breakaway Kenner speeder bike, the
little crash damage one and I used to just slam it into things in my backyard all day
long. You would. Send your favorite to us using the hashtag
BestStarWarsToy, and we’ll feature our favorites here next week. What was yours? It was actually a toy Yoda, a little Yoda. How appropriate
