There is an interesting article on Cinemablend that reveals just how much Hasbro is still holding back from fans when it comes to Rise of Skywalker toys that are being released on Triple Force Friday. Cinemablend spoke with Mike Ballog, Hasbro’s Senior Director of Global Marketing, and he said this:
We have clear conversations about what can come out when, and what needs to stay under wraps. We work around things with that in mind. At least from a Hasbro stand point, [the product on display is] maybe 30-35% of our full line.
In case you wonder, the conversations are with Disney of course, who apparently keep Hasbro from releasing toys when it would make the most sense. For example, could the almost complete lack of Knights of Ren action figures mean that these come with accessories that would spoil the plot? Why is there no Dark Side Rey figure? Lucasfilm leaked her a while ago. Let’s hope Hasbro still has some nice things in store for collectors, because not all that many figures will be released next Friday.
