NY Toy Fair 2019 is a little over a week away, and I am growing more impatient every day that I have to write posts like this. Today, Hasbro gave us their first look at their new offerings for Star Wars toys – and this one is quite interesting.
The new toys are not just an action figure for kids to play with, but an entry point to the entire series. Each pack contains one 3.75-inch scale Star Wars figure, a mini comic, and a code that can be activated with a smart device to unlock more stories online.
Here is what StarWars.com , who broke the exclusive news earlier today, had to say about the new product:
A lonely scavenger in search of belonging. A vulnerable and vengeful child in a mask.
The next wave in Hasbro’s Star Wars Galaxy of Adventures action figure line will introduce the next generation to even more of the saga’s heroes and villains, including Rey and Kylo Ren. Joining the stars of the sequel trilogy will be figures of: Obi-Wan Kenobi, the Jedi Master who trained the future Darth Vader; Darth Maul, the Sith apprentice who murdered Qui-Gon Jinn; General Grievous, the brilliant Separatist cyborg strategist from the time of the Clone Wars; and the fan-favorite bounty hunter Boba Fett.
The first wave includes Rey, Kylo Ren, Obi-Wan Kenobi, General Grievous, Darth Maul, and Boba Fett, meaning this line will span the gamut of all film eras.

Sideshow Toys brought the one-sixth scale awesomeness with them to NYCC 2017, and unveiled new action figures from a few different licenses. In this video, take an up-close look at figures from the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Star Wars, including new versions of Rey, Luke Skywalker, and Kylo Ren from Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Han Solo, Jyn Erso, BB-8, Boba Fett, Dengar, Bossk, and characters from Guardians of the Galaxy 2, and Thor: Ragnarok.
Tamashii Nation’s Star Wars figures have been turning heads, giving them the Samurai treatment that the movies were initially inspired from. George Lucas has cited Akira Kurosawa as a source for the look and feel of the original trilogy, and this line of figures has combined those two worlds into one highly-articulated line of toys.
This year, the company debuted a new Boba Fett and the Emperor’s Royal Guard, along with their Darth Vader and new types of Stormtroopers joining the fray. It’s hard not to fall in love with these figures, and it’s even harder not to spend all of your paychecks on them.

SDCC First Appearance Boba Fett $50.00, limit one per customer, sold ONLY at SDCC at the JAKKS booth in the Lucasfilm area
Boba Fett, Legendary Mandalorian Bounty Hunter has a long and colorful history. While many fans remember him from The Empire Strikes Back as well as his animate debut in The Star Wars Holiday Special, his true first appearance was as a member of the Star Wars delegation in the San Anselmo County Fair on September 24, 1978! At the time, Lucasfilm was headquartered at 52 Park Way in San Anselmo, about twenty minutes north of San Francisco. As part of harvest parade, Darth Vader and for the first time in public, Boba Fett, marched throughout the street waving to fans of all ages. The armor was worn by assistant film editor Duwayne Dunham and featured several noticeable difference such as the brightly colored blue jump suit, yellow and red armor highlights, as well as the “tribal marks” on his helmet; all altered for his later film appearances. JAKKS Pacific is excited to celebrate this legendary character and offer an articulated action figure of First Appearance Boba Fett or the first time ever!
