Hasbro revealed a new wave of Star Wars action figures at New York Comic Con, with a fan favorite making the Black Series.
Though some fans were hoping for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story toy debuts from Hasbro at the Toy Fair this afternoon, the company remained mute on that front. They did, however, reveal several new action figures, both in the 3.75″ series and Black Series.
There’s no release date for these items, but they’ll probably start showing up in September, which is when the next Force Friday is scheduled to take place (and when we’ll be getting the Rogue One toys, via James Burns). You can see photos of all the figures show at the Toy Fair now on Justin LaSalata’s Twitter page.
Below is a list of the 3.75″ figures, courtesy of Justin LaSalata of Jedi News UK.
Star Wars Rebels
- Princess Leia
- Sabine (season 2 version) with removable helmet
- Stormtrooper Kanan with removable helmet
- Darth Maul (he has a double-bladed lightsaber again)
- The Seventh Sister
Star Wars: The Force Awakens
- Takodana Encounter playset (includes Maz Kanata, Rey, Finn, and BB-8)
Next are the Black Series figures.
- Knights of the Old Republic Darth Revan
- Star Wars Rebels Sabine (season 1 version)
- A New Hope Princess Leia
- The Empire Strikes Back Snowtrooper
Hasbro also announced that at San Diego Comic Con this year, they will be giving away exclusive Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Black Series figures.
Also announced were a new wave of Galactic Heroes figures, including The Force Awakens characters.
- Poe Dameron
- Han Solo
- Captain Phasma
- Admiral Ackbar
- Crimson Corsair
- The Ghost
Among the most standout figures is the Star Wars Rebels version of Darth Maul. We knew from the full trailer for the second half of Star Wars Rebels season 2 that Darth Maul would be coming to the show. It’s interesting to note his action figure is only wearing a hood, as opposed to a shirt or a cloak, and carrying a red double-bladed lightsaber. He’s clearly been busy since we last saw him in the Son of Dathomir comic.
Darth Revan and Sabine also stand out, because they were chosen based off fans’ votes at last year’s San Diego Comic Con. And the wait is paying off, because they both look amazing.
