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.

Coming all the way from Japan, “Kotobukiya” always brings great stuff with them making their world debut, or in some cases their North American debut, and NY Toy Fair 2013 was no exception.
Making it’s world debut was a new Star Wars statue, featuring General Grievous from the prequels in all his raging glory. Also unveiled from Star Wars was an unmasked Darth Vader leading a pack of Stormtroopers, as well as a Jango Fett and Boba Fett.
New Marvel Comics statues included Daredevil, Cyclops, Venom, a Todd McFarlane-esque Spiderman, and new statues from “Iron Man 3”. Fans can expect to see the new War Machine and Iron Patriot getting a treatment from Koto as well later this year.
Tons of new ice cube trays made their US debut at the show, including ones from Evangelion featuring the Angels, Naruto and One Piece trays with the main characters, and a new Boba Fett tray from Star Wars. Also being debuted were large-scale ice cubes with one enormous Han Solo in carbonite, as well as a huge Death Star.
Fans of Trigun can look forward to a new statue of Wolfwood along with Vash, who will have a black trenchcoat variant released this year. New statues from the third Evangelion movie will also join them this year, including the fine ladies of Eva as well as Kaworu. Yu Yu Hakusho will be getting statues along with Yugi-Oh, including the world debut of the Dark Magician Girl.
The Bishoujo line continues with the Kitty Pryde statue making her proto debut at the show. Pictured but not sculpted yet was DC Comics Black Canary, which should look great once it is done. Video game fans can also look forward to seeing characters from Mass Effect getting the bishoujo treatment!
