We are bringing you coverage of the Hasbro Star Wars panel
taking place at the 2018 Fan Expo Canada
. We will be bringing you coverage of anything new announced at the panel as it happens so be sure to update your browser periodically over the course of the next hour. Thanks to TroyZ
for helping us out with coverage of the event.
On the panel today is Andrea Demacio, Designer Sam Smith and Steven Gilbert. This is the first time Hasbro has had a Star Wars panel at this convention.
They are doing give-aways for some Comic Con exclusives.
Now they are going over previously announced product like the Force FX Lightsabers.
For 6" Black Series they recap the upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story figures as well as the new Ezra and Chopper figures from Rebels. Ezra is said to incorporate a new type of neck joint.
The new Captain Phasma which I believe is already out in Canada will use the Photoreal tech for her eyes that you can see through the cracked helmet.
Now they are recapping the first wave of Black Series archive figures we saw back during SDCC. Luke which will have a new headsculpt using photoreal and the bounty hunters Boba Fett, Bossk, IG-88.
For Vintage Collection 3.75" they are recapping the recently announced Leia in bounty hunter disguise figure which will be out in 2019. Other figures include the Rogue One Stormtrooper, Darth Revan, Enfys Nest and Elite Praetorian Guard which saw release in the old Black Series line. Also shown are the Solo: A Star Wars Story Lando and Rogue One Deathstar Gunner.
Now a brief history for Black Series is being given. They are talking about behind-the-scenes stuff for making the Black Series Last Jedi Luke Skywalker.
Now for the new reveals...
Dryden Voss for Black Series and Captain Phasma for Vintage Collection which is another figure that was done for the older Black Series 3.75" figures. Check out some images below. Some press images will be coming soon and possibly booth images if they put the figures out there.
Hasbro says they won't make a Rebels Ghost vehicle for 6" Black Series because it's to big. (How about agood 3.75" one then Hasbro :) )
Black Series packaging will be staying the same.
Vintage Collection Raven will only have one lightsaber
No announcements for and of the new cartoons to be made here.
