Rundown of Hasbro’s San Diego Comic Con Panel with Pictures!

The Hasbro panel and San Diego Comic Con has come and gone, and many were left unfulfilled. There were no The Last Jedi product reveals aside from the previously revealed Luke and Rey Black Series 2-pack that we reviewed in an earlier article. Also in a surprising move, Hasbro didn’t mention anything about what we should expect on Force Friday, which is only six weeks away. It may not necessarily be their decision, as I am sure Lucasfilm is doing what they can to keep any kind of plot reveals sealed for as long as they can. That aside, they did show us plenty of awesome new figures and accessories headed our way, so let’s check them out!

 

 

Before we delve into the figures, we must get into some elegance first. Now you may call it Anakin’s, or Luke’s, but to Hasbro in 2017, the Skywalker family heirloom is now knows as Rey’s lightsaber, and here it is in all of it’s full Force FX glory!

 

 

Now on to the figures!

 

 

3.75″ 5POA

 

  • Leia on Hoth
  • Hoth Luke and the Wampa (with removable arm)
