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!

The Entire Star Wars Universe Gets Measured In This Hypnotic Video

The Star Wars universe is vast, and continues to grow – possibly faster than ever thanks to Disney. But, have you ever wondered about the scale of this universe? MetaBallUniverse has, and has been putting together videos for quite some time about Star Wars and other things via 3D renderings.

Their latest video asks the question – just how big is everyone and everything in Star Wars? Did you know that BB-8 is actually taller than Yoda, and how small that Rebel Blockade Runner from the opening of New Hope looks when its standing next to the Droid Control Ships from the prequels? And the Death Star (both of them) look absolutely puny next to Starkiller Base.

Check out this mesmerizing video that puts it all in perspective – literally:

A few years ago, the same studio also put together this epic video, comparing the sizes of Starships across the sci-fi spectrum. It’s rare to see the Enterprise-D next to a Star Destroyer in proper scale, so consider this your chance to see how they all stack up next to each other:

Of course, the next step is someone comparing all of their battle capabilities in a free-for-all battle royale, but that’s a video for another day!

NY Toy Fair 2018: Ultimate Co-Pilot Chewie

Our friends at RageWorks attended the illustrious Hasbro event during NY Toy Fair 2018, and saw many things we were not privy to. One of the most unique and certainly coolest things that popped up was this, the electronic “Ultimate Co-pilot Chewie” toy.

This version of Chewbacca stands 16 inches tall and features more than 100 sound and motion combinations. With signature Wookiee-talk back interaction, the Ultimate Co-Pilot Chewie responds to external movements and sounds. Make a noise and the Ultimate Co-Pilot Chewie will roar back! Fans can enjoy everything from naptime to pretending to fly with their Wookiee sidekick.
