And yes, that IS Emperor Palpatine cackling at the end! Things are about to go down in a galaxy far, far away.

First Look At New “Star Wars Galaxy of Adventures” Figures From Hasbro – Toy Fair 2019

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.

The new sets will be available later this Spring.

Hasbro has not been the only company dropping reveals ahead of Toy Fair, as Mezco has shown off a new Captain Marvel figure, Mego announced new 14″ Star Trek figures, and a new line based on characters from Stan Lee’s vault, and Neca debuted a great looking Shredder and Karate Kid set.

Stay tuned for more Toy Fair 2019 coverage!

Did this “Star Wars Battlefront 2” promo spoil Rey & Kylo Ren’s outfits in “The Last Jedi”?

In another case of a toy or video game leaking/ spoiling something from a big movie, a store accidentally showed off some new costumes from “Star Wars Episode 8: The Last Jedi” as seen in EA’s new “Star Wars Battlefront 2” game.

EA had previously announced that costumes from Episode 8 would be a part of the game, which includes a storyline about the rise of the First Order. Nothing had been seen yet, but GameStop Ireland posted full images of Kylo Ren and Rey, who will be part of a pre-order bonus with the game.

These images are listed as “movie production stills”, meaning what you see is ultimately what you will get in a few months in theaters.

What is interesting to note is how much more Rey looks like a proper Jedi here, and Kylo Ren has seemingly ditched the helmet to show his face. What will happen to them in the movie, we still have to wait and see, but at least we know they get some new clothes to wear.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi will arrive on December 15, with Battlefront 2 coming a month earlier, on November 17.
