Talking about the old inflatable lightsaber role play from Kenner and how they have come along way with those like blade builders.

Kylo Ren's blade is blade builder compatible and the crackling sound of his saber.

Nerf Blasters - Captain Phasma.

Radio Controlled R2-D2. The original one was very simple with a metal antenna. They have come along way with BB-8 and Prog.

Black Series. Started 5yrs ago and has grown exponentially.

Black Series is a fan focused line which is how they ended up doing 6" vehocles and beasts. Luke's Landspeeder was an iconic vehicle they had to do. Rey's as well.

The Centerpiece line also came to life due to input from the fans.

Poe Dameron gets a role-play Black Series helmet. It's a different design of the ep VII one.

Going over the first two wave of 6" Black Series Last Jedi figures which are on shelves now.

First wave is Luke, Rey, Hera, Stormtrooper, Vader and Kylo Ren. Second wave is Finn, Poe Dameron, General Leia, Maz and Elite Guard.

Vintage 3.75" Collection. Wave 1 has Rey, Kylo Ren, FO Stormtrooper, Jyn Erso and Rebel Hoth Trooper and new figure Snoke. This is an updated from what was announced at SDCC.

Talking about the 3.75" Vintage Collection Rogue One Tank vehicle that was announced at SDCC. They use a new technique called co-molding so things like the Kyver(sp) Crystals will be multi colored coming out of the mold.

They molded a coffee cup somewhere on the interior of the tank for fun.

3.75" Force Link. Rey Island Journey figure, Luke in Jedi Exile outfit and General Leia. They based the headsculpt for Leia on a headscan they were able to get. DJ is also getting a figure. R2 from Attack of the Clones with jets gets a figure. Yoda and Ep IV Obi-Wan also get the Force Link treatment. Yoda has a ball joint at the neck.
