On Friday, Hasbro Pulse held a virtual Fan Fest celebration to highlight new and upcoming toys from various franchises, including a galaxy far, far away. There were many reveals from the event, with countless new toys for fans and collectors to get their hands on. Here’s a recap of all of today’s news:
The Vintage Collection:
The Vintage Collection has become one of the most popular lines of Star Wars toys in recent years. The highly posable 3.75 inch figures come in retro packaging, hence the name. Today, there were several new figures from this collection displayed, including Luke Skywalker (Hoth), Han Solo (Endor), Admiral Ackbar, Emperor’s Royal Guard, Shadow Stormtrooper (from The Force Unleashed), Scout Trooper, and Heavy Battle Droid. Check out some images of the upcoming toys below:
Also announced for the Vintage Collection is General Merrick’s Blue Leader X-Wing fighter, which also comes with a figure of the character. This product excellently recreates the X-Wing seen in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and is sure to be a hit with fans and collectors. It can be found exclusively at Target this fall.
The Bad Batch
We’re less than a month away from the latest Star Wars animated project, The Bad Batch. As such, there are a wave of toys coming from the series. Black Series figures for Hunter, Crosshair, and Elite Squad Trooper have already been announced and will hit shelves soon. Hasbro added to the line of Bad Batch Black Series figures today, revealing a new ‘Tech’ toy. See the amazing design for the figure below:
Other Black Series Reveals
There were more Black Series reveals to get fans excited at the event today. Koska Reeves, played by WWE’s Sasha Banks, is getting her own action figure that displays her bright blue Mandalorian armor and helmet. Also from The Mandalorian, a Q-90 figure was announced. Q-90 was the droid that the Mandalorian kills in Chapter 6 – The Prisoner, and whose head the Frog Lady uses to communicate through in season 2.
Also displayed are Black Series figures of General Lando Calrissian from Return of the Jedi and Aurra Sing from The Clone Wars. The Lando figure goes well with the recent line of Return of the Jedi Black Series that hit shelves, which included Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, and Leia Organa all in their classic Endor outfits. Also shown today is a Wedge Antilles Black Series helmet. Check out images for these products below:
