I’ve just shared a little visual treat from the fine folks at Hasbro Toys who had recently unveiled the first wave of Marvel Legends Series action figures for the upcoming Marvel Studios film “Captain Marvel”. That post went over to the “Toys and Collectibles” section of PiercingMetal.com and you can see it by clicking HERE since those kinds of action figures get featured over there. Now its time to share the stuff that is aimed at the younger generation of female collectors (generally speaking of course). Check out the press news and the colorful images of these dolls and accessories down below.

It’s no lie when I say that I grew up collecting the early “Star Wars” toys (which were Kenner at the time in case you didn’t know this stuff) and now with Hasbro holding the license for quite some time, the amount of high quality toys and collectibles are bountiful. For the adult collectors they have “The Black Series” of highly poseable action figures and now there is something for the younger members of your family circle to enjoy as well. Check out the details that we just received about the “Star Wars Micro Force” WOW Series. Images and press copy came care of the media keepers of the gate for the company.
STAR WARS MICRO FORCE WOW! Series 1: (HASBRO/Ages 4 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: $7.99/Available: Fall 2018). Peel the wrapper off of the STAR WARS MICRO FORCE WOW! Series 1 lightsaber blade to reveal the STAR WARS MICRO FORCE figures and sticker sheet contained within. STAR WARS MICRO FORCE figures are expressive, small-scale figures from the STAR WARS galaxy that let kids and collectors recreate their favorite STAR WARS scene and adventures in a micro galaxy! Decorate the hilt of the Lightsaber with the stickers! Blast into intergalactic action with squishable small-scale figures from STAR WARS MICRO FORCE! Includes 4 figures and 1 sticker sheet. Each sold separately. Available exclusively at Walmart Fall 2018 and at all major retailers 1/1/19.
The Press Release:
BotBots are mischievous little robots who came to life from everyday objects inside a shopping mall! This rare type of Transformers robot is tiny, mischievous, and great at hiding!
Not long ago and somewhere close by, a glowing mist filled with TRANSFORMERS energy called ENERGON came down from the sky and covered a shopping mall. The things inside came to life as little TRANSFORMERS robots! These bots can hide in plain sight as everyday objects, meaning no one knows what’s a bot and what’s not! Mischievous, funny, and super silly, these are… BOTBOTS!
Hello again my friends and “Welcome Back” to another exciting installment from the 2018 “Sweet Suite” that was held very recently over at the Pier 60 event space. As previously mentioned in Part 1 (seen HERE), this incredible event is organized by the folks at The Toy Insider and since there is a lot to see let’s get right on down to business with this mega-sized Iron Man playset from Hasbro. Isn’t it awesome? I think so.
As you might realize this is for the younger superhero fan in your family and something that will help them bring these movies and comic books into their playtime.
We’ve just learned that the folks over at Hasbro have revealed the “MY LITTLE PONY EQUESTRIA GIRLS FRIENDSHIP POWER” Assortment in advance of this year Toy Fair. Check out the details on this line and when they will become available and I’ll close out with a couple of thoughts.
About The Collection:
MY LITTLE PONY EQUESTRIA GIRLS FRIENDSHIP POWER Assortment: The EQUESTRIA GIRLS “pony up” when they tap into their individual strengths and join together to harness friendship’s power! This assortment includes SUNSET SHIMMER, RAINBOW DASH and TWLIGHT SPARKLE figures. Press the button on their torso for lights and sounds!

LR44 batteries included. Available at most major retailers and on HasbroToyShop.com (linked below). (Ages 5 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: $19.99/Available: Fall 2018)
Piercing Ken Thoughts: I think that they look terrific and I just love the vibrant colors along with their sizes and manner of articulation. Since so many of my friends have younger kids that LOVE the “My Little Pony” stuff, I can see where some of my Christmas Club money will be going in the coming months. As these get closer to their release date, I’ll check on Amazon.com and add the respective purchasing codes for those who are a little out of the way to get them easily. Hey we’re here to help after all. What do you folks with the little ones think of these? Let me know in the comments section below. By the way, it’s my pleasure to share with you that The Chronicles Of Piercing Ken will be in attendance at this years Toy Fair and its our eighth straight year exploring the trade show as a member of the press. Stay tuned to our Official Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for the highlights as we see them. Until next time.
