SDCC 2017 Hasbro Exclusive: Luke Skywalker with X-34 Speeder

HASCON has come and gone, but the exclusives will be on my shelf forever.  We’ve already had a look at three outstanding HASCON exclusives that I’m over the moon to now have on my shelves.  However, there were more exclusives available at HASCON than just HASCON exclusives.  HASCON goers had a “second chance” at some of the incredible Hasbro SDCC 2017 exclusives. Many of these SDCC exclusives were available in very limited quantities and sold out pretty quickly.  One of the SDCC exclusives still on the shelf at HASCON (but not yet on my shelf), by day 2 was Luke Skywalker with the X-34 Speeder.  Being that my meager black series shelf was still missing a proper Luke, and given that the price was very reasonable on the show floor, I figured…yeah, I’m gonna have to get this.   read more

HASCON 2017 Exclusive: Transformers Arcee

Welcome to this historic moment in MUReview history.  Our second ever Transformers review!  (our first was in the SDCC IDW set – Jetfire…it was amazing, but it was only one…if I do two…you can rest assured there will be more go forward…thus, historic).  This also happens to be our third of four looks at HASCON exclusives.  MUReview and litlgeeks hit the HASCON show floor with heavy intentions upon Marvel, Marvel Legends, and pure fun toys for the litlgeeks.  We achieved those intentions and brought you an insane amount of coverage from HASCON.  We loved everything we saw out of Marvel, all of the announcements were fantastic.  One of the biggest jaw droppers for us at the show though (shhhh don’t tell the Marvel team), was the Transformers Generations Rodimus Prime set.  The figure can start out as Hot Rod, and you can “evolve” him into a full Rodimus Prime with trailer and all.  I can’t wait for it to come out, but you’ll ask, why am I blathering on about that when this review is for Arcee…well, one it’s not out yet, so this review isn’t about him, two, Arcee was the Transformers exclusive for HASCON and she’s a stunning Transformer that I’d of been crazy to pass up, three, Rodimus is gonna need Transformers to hang out with on my shelf, and he and Arcee, they were cool with each other back in the day so…. read more

HASCON 2017 Exclusive: Captain Rex

We here at MUReview.net love Star Wars.  Yes, our site has a comic focus, but Star Wars is at the literal core of our being.  So when we are at a convention, faced with the opportunity to buy a sick Star Wars exclusive…we will exhibit less than appropriate self control, and we will probably buy that Star Wars exclusive…that happened at HASCON 2017…twice.  Here with Captain Rex, and again with the Luke / X-34 Speeder SDCC exclusive that was available at HASCON.  Now…our love of Star Wars doesn’t necessarily translate into a wealth of knowledge regarding Star Wars toys.  We have…many, including the 6″ Black Series scale Tie Fighter that I still swoon over when I look at…but I don’t want you to continue reading thinking you are looking at the words of a Star Wars toy expert.  I just really love a lot of them… read more
