For Star Wars fans attending this year’s New York Comic Con (NYCC), the Hasbro panel served-up some fresh looks at some must-have merch from a galaxy far, far away, including some official (i.e., non-leak) reveals.
Following last week’s Triple Force Friday launch event for new toys and collectibles inspired by Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, the Disney+ series The Mandalorian, and the upcoming video game Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, Hasbro gave fans a first-look at upcoming waves of products across several lines, most of which are already available for preorder through retailers, such as Entertainment Earth.
STAR WARS: THE VINTAGE COLLECTION 3.75-INCH ACTION FIGURES
The super-articulated line of figures in the classic 3.75-inch scale is expanding with a number of new figures, several of which are repacks of the since-shuttered 3.75-inch Black Series line. The repacked figures will be issued on a Vintage Collection cardback for the very first time and will accompany some brand new figures that span the entire Star Wars saga.
Upcoming releases include Princess Leia (Yavin), Luke Skywalker (Yavin), Shadow Trooper, Jawa, Sith Trooper, and Sith Trooper with Armory Pack. Skywalker is a Walmart exclusive, while the Armory Pack Sith Trooper will be available only at Amazon.
Of the new reveals, the “Cave of Evil” three-pack received some of the most enthusiastic response. The Target exclusive includes Yoda and Luke Skywalker, alongside a Darth Vader figure with Luke’s face, as seen in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back.
STAR WARS THE SKYWALKER SAGA 3.75-INCH ACTION FIGURE PACKS
Available exclusively at Walmart, these limited-edition packs celebrate the conclusion of the nine-film Skywalker Saga. Each set pairs fan-favorite characters, each with a distinct golden finish. While some were made available on Triple Force Friday, new reveals include Rey and Kylo Ren, Finn and Poe Dameron, Mace Windu and Jango Fett, and Anakin Skywalker with Obi-Wan Kenobi.
STAR WARS THE BLACK SERIES 6-INCH ACTION FIGURES
The Black Series seems to be the line of choice for die-hard Star Wars collectors these days, and even more highly detailed, super-articulated figures are on the way. New characters include the First Order Jet Trooper, Wedge Antilles, Clone Commander Fox, Yoda (Force Spirit), Luke Skywalker (Yavin Ceremony), Luke Skywalker (Jedi Knight), IG-11, and a Chewbacca and C-3PO two-pack.
STAR WARS GALAXY OF ADVENTURES LUKE SKYWALKER
The relaunched Galaxy of Adventures collection presents characters in a new 5-inch scale with cartoonish designs. Launched on Triple Force Friday, the line is very kid-focused and will expand with the addition of Luke Skywalker (Jedi Master), available exclusively at Walmart.
