In case you missed the news yesterday, collectors across several fandoms rejoiced, as Hasbro shared word of a return to windowed packaging. This is win for fans, as windowless packaging has led to several issues – repackaged items, returns due to glaring QC issues that couldn’t be spotted, et al.
Here’s the scoop from Hasbro’s press release –
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.
I personally didn’t mind the windowless packaging, but I tend to by direct, so repacks and whatnot didn’t really impact me. That said, I see this as a win and look forward to the first releases with new packaging, although that won’t be until next year.
Are you excited for this change?
