Stop by our Facebook page for more images from the Hasbro presentation. The images uploaded in 3 separate albums for some reason, and it won’t let me consolidate them… Find them here, here and here.

Everyone follow me over to Facebook. I know the way!
Got lost in his own museum…
I was thinking this when I typed that! 😀
Still no turtle nuns.
Maybe they’ll be part of a multi-pack. Old Man Lando and the Turtle Nuns.
Sounds like a great two pack.
I bet they’re mutant ninja turtle nuns.
The new 3.75 look good. Rey just has a shawl on over her costume though?
Shawl Wars: The Last Jerkin.
When will that Yoda be available? How about the Obi Wan you showed the other day?
They are in stores now.
I have to try to go out and look again then. People must be grabbing them before I get there. By the way, re-packing Chewy and returning him porg-less is so distasteful it’s got me seeing red! 😀
What about Leia, DJ and the rest of that wave? Did they give any ETA?
My HTS order for her says 10/20/17. DJ and the others will be part of ‘lost’ wave 4, so about a year and a half from now look for them at 5Below.
Sounds about right
You can preorder the entire wave at BBTS. It says for a September arrival, but I’d imagine it’d be closer to the late-October release like the Leia on HTS.
Paul, have you heard from Mike? Someone mentioned his hometown and it’s tight in the path of the hurricane.
You bet I do… This will be a masterpiece. 😄
That Darth Vader helmet has me drooling….
I’m more curious about the HasCon turnout than the product previews. Did enough people shell out big bucks to go to this? Seemed like there was not enough to warrant the expense of this show.
They showed everyone from wave 2 except for Jyn. Not that interested in her, but it’d be nice to see since I preordered the wave.
How come Luke doesn’t have mustard stains on his exile wear?
Due to the time it takes to develop the toys based on changes to the film, Hasbro is still playing ketchup.
Not much TVC, or TBS6 we didn’t already know about…
Definitely getting the BB-9E pack.
When is Rex going up for sale on HTS?
Oh my!!! I’m not dreaming, that new TLJ R2-D2 is utilizing the BAD sculpt, WITH foot wires like the original ones and new booster rockets (different from the R7-T1 & R7-Z0 ones). So cool to get another BAD R2, and with a Force Link chip inside! Cherry on the cake!
Thanks JTA for the report!
Ick! It’s the ROTS version.
I’m glad someone’s excited about yet another R2.
A new Artoo for a new movie is actually an important thing for me. Same with all Legacy characters. We might have a ton of them, but when a new movie with Vader or the droids in it comes out, I want figures of them to go with it. 🙂
I really REALLY want Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo in the Vanity Fair outfit in ANY SCALE !! Preferably both and especially TVC but I need her !! Such an interesting character. Also the Rose in disguise pack with BB-8 and evil BB-8 is something I need in my life ASAP !!! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/809d2ba95b8ff2bdf7ed5b84ec585fa8def0cfe625ff60e3848461e12d7d5125.jpg
Defintely TVC. I’m compiling a list of figures I want from the new canon for TVC. This is on it.
Really? I can’t stand the hair color. The whole hairstyle looks too much like something from Hunger Games, imo.
Guys check out Benicios Gun!!
What about it?
Add a stock to it. Make it black. Then what gun is it?
I give up. Fett?
It would look similar to Boba Fett’s? But the barrel on DJ’s gun looks smooth.
I think its not smooth. It looks like there could be the grooves. Its not 100% certain. Theres the patened JJ lense flare lol. I just think it looks like a possible EE-3. Only a few bounty hunters and Mandalorian Protectors used this type of gun that im aware of. Granted i dont know alot of EU. But if its ee-3 it immediately will be thought its tied to Boba. Could be nothing. They are keeping him mysterious a bit.
TVC Snoke looks good. The best thing about this character, from Hasbro’s perspective, has to be that his face is already so deformed that it will be much harder to notice when the eyes are painted on badly.
Haha yeah the derp eye, we cant tell if its an accident or on purpose
Maybe its natural, maybe its Derpaline
Congrats! You won the internet today!
So is anyone actually attending Hascon? Besides you guys?
Im not but a friend of mine is. He does news and toy reviews. He has a blog. His main line is Marvel not Star Wars but he includes Star Wars and all kinds of toys on his blog.
So that’s one. Two if you count Paul.
I saw pictures of the convention…Looked like what the last 20 minutes of SDCC look like on the last day. 🙂
Just looked it up on tweeter. Looked like a single room at Celebration. There was also a table of doughnut holes, so there’s that.
I almost went. 😛
What’s with Rey (Island Journey)? She looks like she spent a large part of that journey eating porgs.
Does R2 use the rockets in TLJ or is this a prequel R2? Hoping for the former but expecting the latter.
My first thought as well when I saw the rockets, I can’t help but think of that brutally terrible droid factory scene on Geonosis. That’s personally my least favorite scene in the entire prequel trilogy.
That was a pretty terrible sequence. I think the love scenes, particularly the one in AOTC where Anakin gets bucked off that animal, may be worse.
Haha, no joke I was going to write in parentheses with the exception of any anakin/padme AOTC scene, so touché.
I was wondering the same thing. There’s a TLJ Galactic Heroes set where Artoo has the rockets out. Also, he has a third leg and it looks like the “ankles” on his other feet might be articulated. Think that’s possible?
Got those 5poa. So sad. Waste of plastic.
Is it just me, or are all of those 5POA a step back in quality after the initial first wave? That Luke looks off (really dig that look though), BDT’s head sculpt seems no distinct and that Rey looks odd.
TVC stuff is so good though, so I’ll just wait for that, am so excited for it.
Also; that Hasbro timeline of all the names of the Star Wars line – just shows they’ve stuck with this rubbish “Black Series” branding so much longer than other lines…. Bin it. Freshen up the product packaging.
That Vader helmet is incredible. I would be all over a red five one if they ever got round to it.
I’m very disappointed in that Luke. I’m not crazy about the costume anyway. That staff looks like it has a saber in the end pointing down. So not his classic green saber.
My wallet…Got damn it, my wallet.
Any word on if Hasbro updated the FO Stormtrooper to have an upper thigh joint like the Death Trooper and Shoretroopers have ?
