CELEBRATION IS HERE!!!!

 

This is one of the greatest weekends for Star Wars fans.  Star Wars Celebration is April 13th-16thin Orlando, Florida.  It has everything you would want from expos, trailer releases, cosplay, toys, events, and much more!  Unfortunately Brian’s Toys was unable to attend this year

     

 

I was able to attend a few years ago and it was a blast!  Meeting people and seeing different cosplay was probably my favorite thing about it.  Our hottest items at Celebration were FX lightsabers; you cannot go around Celebration without the trusty lightsaber.  The best moment was when Ray Park (Darth Maul) used our Darth Maul lightsabers to show off his moves.  Check out the video below!

I would highly recommend attending Celebration in the near future if you have not yet!

Did you know Brian’s Toys had a payment plan option for order?  Well we do!  Many customers are unaware that Brian’s Toys has a payment plan option, so I figured I would discuss information about our payment plan for my blog this week.

There will be times where there are specific items that might be out of budget.  With the Brian’s Toys payment plan you can make 5 easy payments, so that rare item might be a little easier to purchase.  

Details about the payment plan can be found out at the following link: 

http://www.brianstoys.com/payment-plan

Overall it is 5 payments of 20% of the total purchase each month.  The item or order must exceed $600.  This is an interest free plan and payment can be made by credit/debit card, Paypal, or check.  You can e-mail or call to get your item on hold today!

This week I am extremely excited to share with you modern Star Wars First Shot/Prototype items that we recently received in stock.  These one-of-a-kind action figures are difficult to find and do not come around often.  The fact that we received 40 prototype figures at the same time makes it all the better!  I really wish these were prototype vintage figures, but either way it is nice to have some porotype figures in stock.  Click the Brian’s Toys logo below to take a look at all of our First Shot figures in stock!

The following vintage 3-packs were manufactured by Kenner between the years of 1978-1982:
SW Sets 1978: Hero, Villain, & Android
SW Sets 1979: Creature & Droid
ESB Sets 1980: Bespin, Imperial Forces,  & Hoth Rebels
ESB Sets 1981: Imperial, Bespin, & Rebels
Note that some of these sets were re-released at different years with different characters.

A total of 16 sets were created by Kenner and they could be considered the rarest vintage production of Star Wars items issued.

Brian’s Toys has 2 of the 3 sets created in 1978.

Android Set:  I cannot believe Kenner created an ‘Android Set’ and included Chewbacca, what was Kenner thinking?  They did create a set a year later that was called the ‘Droid Set’ that included all droids.  
The android set we have is priced at $8,499.99 and has an overall grade of AFA 75.  The sub-grades are box 70, window 85, and figures 85.  This would have been a premier AFA 85 piece if it wasn’t for the box.  The box has a crease that goes completely across the card by the punch and a crease that goes completely across where the box meets the card.

Hero Set: The hero set is one of the toughest Kenner 3-packs to find.  It was surprising to many toy enthusiasts that Luke was not included in the first release of 3-packs.  Kenner did end up re-releasing a new hero set the next year and replaced Leia with a Luke in x-wing outfit.  That set is considered to be Hero Set II.

The hero set we have is priced at $7,999.99 and has an overall grade of AFA 60.  The sub-grades are box 70, window 60, and figures 80.  The main flaw is the bubble where Han Solo is has about a 2” crack.  The box also does have a crease along the top by the punch, light wear, and a small dent on the right side.  

If you like the design and look of the 3-packs and the price is too high, do not worry! Hasbro released modern 3-packs that will not break the bank and Gentle Giant also created some jumbo 3-packs.
