Hasbro to bring back window packaging in 2024!


toynewman - April 06, 2023
BREAKING NEWS! Window packaging is returning to G.I. Joe Classified, Power Rangers Lightning Collection, Star Wars Black Series and Marvel Legends.

From Hasbro R&C PR:

"We wanted to share an update on packaging for Hasbro’s 6-inch-scale figures. Based on your feedback, we will be re-introducing windows and blisters to our 6-inch fan figures beginning later this year, into 2024 for select products across our portfolio of brands, including, G.I. Joe Classified, Power Rangers Lightning Collection, Star Wars Black Series and Marvel Legends. This will eventually expand to all new 6-inch figure releases.

The new windows and blisters will be made from bio PET or recycled PET helping us achieve our priority of meeting our fans’ expectations for extraordinary packaging and superior design while still developing packaging that minimizes waste and the use of virgin plastic.

Thank you again for being one of our biggest fans and for your continued support of Hasbro."

Awesome, good to know! Thanks for the info otherwise I never would've known because I'm too lazy to do the research myself

No problem. I think a lot of people see "Bio PET" and think "compostable," which is designed to break down on its own over a relatively short period of time, and that's not what this is.

Recycled PET is essentially the same as regular PET. The Bio PET apparently is, too.

As far as its structure, Bio-PET is chemically identical to virgin PET #1 plastic. This means it has all of the properties of PET including strong impact resistance, clarity and oxygen barrier properties, while withstanding temperatures up to 65C [149F].

In other words, Bio-PET is identical in every way to PET #1, but its made from 30% bio-based waste product instead.

Hopefully they don't go back to plastic blisters for the figures themselves, and just use the windows. I like the current accessory and figure set-up now.

Windowless boxes don't really bother me one way or another. Every Hasbro team, minus the G.I. Joe team, didn't adapt well to them and just included bland renders. Marvel team could've at least used comic artwork or something.

Yeah, those plastic blisters are awful. Totally agree with the (lack of) box art, they should have done for all their PFP not just G.I. Joe and Transformers

The amount of plastic in all this packaging is so miniscule that if it was consolidated it wouldn't even amount to 1% of the space in ONE landfill.

PET is the most easily recyclable and most widely recycled of all plastics. The earth isn't screwed because of action figure packaging or plastic straws or lightbulbs or whatever. There are much bigger problems.

The ecosystems in which we live are doomed. But that's OK! At least I can enjoy my MIB action figures! I am old and have no children or grandchildren who have to try to survive in the trash heap that I am leaving for them to endure. A win for me!!

When they first announced plastic free, I figured they would just go PET, I thought there was no way they'd alienate an entire branch of collectors....oops...

I also don't know much about PET plastic but I hope the bio and recycled PET plastic holds up and doesn't degrade easily for the MIP collectors.

This kind of sucks Hasbro decides this now after all the Avengers and X-Men 60th anniversary stuff comes out. I also don't know much about PET plastic but I hope the bio and recycled PET plastic holds up and doesn't degrade easily for the MIP collectors.
