Despite much controversy over the lack of a Rey token in the Star Wars Monopoly game sold in the U.S, it seems as though Hasbro has finally decided to listen to the outcry and have available Star Wars Monopoly sets that include the heroine of The Force Awakens.Read More
Last year, an eight year old girl wrote a letter to Hasbro wondering why there was no Rey token included in the new Star Wars Monopoly game. Hasbro responded to her letter, saying that they left her out because they didn't want to be responsible for spoilers to The Force Awakens, as the board game came out before the film. Later, they promised to include Rey in subsequent versions of the game by the Fall of 2016. It's now Summer of 2017, and we're still waiting.Read More

Featuring Captain Marvel, Luke Cage, and Black Panther alums!
If you'd asked me yesterday for my thoughts on the Hasbro Cinematic Universe, Hasbro and Paramount's planned series of
feature-length ads films featuring the G.I. Joe, Micronauts, Visionaries, M.A.S.K. (Mobile Armored Strike Kommand), and ROM: SpaceKnight brands, I probably would have been highly dubious.
Where's Rey? She's right here.
Finally, we know what Rey's Monopoly figure is going to look like--courtesy of a reveal by Hasbro at the annual Toy Fair in New York City. Originally, Hasbro said that Rey hadn't been included in the first game's set because they hadn't wanted to spoil the movie for people--although I'm not necessarily sure how Rey holding a lightsaber would technically be considered a spoiler (since she's not the only character to do so in TFA.)Read More

"Business offers product to meet staggering demand" shouldn't be a newsworthy story, but, since time and time again the opposite has been true in terms of merchandise for female characters, I feel like celebrating whenever Hasbro and other companies do the bare minimum to improve representation.Read More

Rey's calling to you. Just let her in.
Yesterday, we got word of an 8-year-old's letter to Hasbro asking where Rey, the main character of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, was in their Star Wars Monopoly game. Hasbro responded with some kind-of-nonsense about preventing spoilers, since the game was released back in September, but now they're making things right.Read More
Rey is the undisputed star of The Force Awakens (even those bros who say the movie was "the equivalent of auto-castration" are really just testifying to her power), but predictably, she and her fellow badass Captain Phasma have been conspicuously absent from a lot of the film's merchandise so far.Read More
