The Rantcor Pit #66 - Hey Hasbro! (Part 1: Small Scale, Big Ideas)

The Force of July 2017 Begins Here!

Welcome to an great new episode of The Rantcor Pit that, during the course of its production, has expanded into a two-parter!  As a companion piece to the last show, Cole "JediCole" Houston and Eddie Medina decided to make their impassioned pleas to Hasbro for some of the characters, vehicles, and environments of the Star Wars universe they would like to see get the toy treatment.

Since Hasbro's acquisition of Tonka in 2000, which included Kenner Products, Star Wars figures have enjoyed a unique status in the toy manufacturer's line.  From periods where it was insisted that this is a toy line and toys are for kids to periodic illustrations of a recognition of the thriving adult collector market, the nature and focus of Star Wars action figures has been rather fluid in nature.  Your hosts, in common with most collectors, naturally have their own wish list, much of which is shared on this episode. 

Join your hosts as they delve into every facet of the Saga, from the from feature films to comics to animated series to share their top picks for (as yet) unproduced toys in both current scales, with a focus on the 3.75" line.
