HASCON: The Full Star Wars Schedule at Hasbro’s Event this September!

Hasbro’s HASCON will take place in Providence, Rhode Island from September 8-10. We have been sent the full list of panels, features, and events for the weekend, but of course we are interested in Star Wars! Here is the full list of all things Star Wars to be featured at the event!

 

 

Come celebrate 40 years of Star Wars memories, and make some new ones with activities including:

 

PHOTO OPS

 

  • Photo ops with the Emperor’s Throne, Yoda, and Stormtrooper statues
  • Pose like a real action figure and get your picture in with three different life-size action figure
    backer cards

 

Honestly, who hasn’t wanted to have their own action figure, now you can be…photographed as one. That’s still pretty cool!

 

INSERT YOU HERE:

You can finally be that action figure you always wanted!

 

PRODUCT LINES

 

  • Feast your eyes on 40 years of iconic Star Wars products
  • Highlights of the current product line with a preview of the epic The Last Jedi 2018 line-up
  • Take part in the world’s largest lightsaber build, sponsored by Blade Builders

 

It will be interesting to see how much of the toy line for The Last Jedi is revealed three months before the film’s release. As you may recall before The Force Awakens there was minimal Rey presence, and absolutely no presence of her as a Force using, lightsaber wielder, so let’s see what they throw at us this time!

 

 

MEDIA VIEWING

 

  • Hang out in the screening area & lounge to watch Forces of Destiny episodes, Episode 8 trailer,
    designer desks and other content

 

You probably saw “Episode 8 trailer” and lost your mind for a second, but we nor you should expect Disney to reveal any kind of new material of that magnitude at a toy convention, so it will likely be a trailer we have already seen.

 

 

PANELS

 

  • From a galaxy far, far away, we have some fan-tastic panels, including:
  • Star Wars: 40 Years of Play: Star Wars team members, veterans and newcomers alike will
    discuss their favorite products, hidden history and even the line’s origins at Kenner in 1977
  • Behind the Black Series: Design Director Steve Evans and the talented team behind The Black
    Series gives a behind-the-scenes look at development of the line, never-before-seen details and
    other great surprises
  • Star Wars – Forces of Destiny: Join the team as they take you behind the scenes and dive into the
    creative process of developing the exciting new Star Wars Force of Destiny line

 

 

The list of special guests has yet to be revealed, so we will keep you posted if any familiar names pop up as we inch closer to the event!
