Hasbro keeps churning out fun toys for each of the Star Wars releases in this new Disney era. With each new movie we’ve gotten some great stuff with their figure releases, their board games, interactive toys, lightsabers, and nerf guns. The new Han Solo movie doesn’t look to break that trend.
Last week we got a glimpse at some of the figures and the new Millenium Falcon that are going to be released. Today, we’ve got cool new stuff including additions to the Bladebuilders line and a Han Solo Nerf Glowstrike blaster. My personal favorite looks to be Ultimate Co-pilot Chewie. A cute and fun looking miniature Cewbacca doll that reacts to your movements and sounds.
Check out the images and description of the new release below.

Hasbro is also releasing some new figures in their MightyMuggs line. These are those cartoonish looking figures with the three different expressions you can swap out on the face. Hasbro sent us a couple of these (keep your eyes peeled for a future contest giveaway in our future) and my kids were instantly mesmerized by the carousel of expressions. I’d wager a guess these will make some great small gifts for the younger fans out there.
Stay Tuned to SWNN as we’ll have our own John Hoey at the NYC Toy Fair this weekend and will bring you any news that comes out of that event.
