This morning Hasbro Pulse hosted there latest Fan First Friday Live Stream on Facebook. There were lots of reveals made during the stream and for fans of 3 3/4″ line, it was full of surprises. While we anticipate an official press release from Hasbro later today, we’ve provided the highlights for your below. And if you didn’t catch the live stream you can do so here!
The Vintage Collection
They began with The Vintage Collection by showing the video on the Smuggler’s Run Millenium Falcon set coming exclusively from Target at the end of this month. This video debuted a few weeks ago online.
Next, they revealed that the Hondo Ohnaka which is included with the Smuggler’s Run Falcon will be carded individually in the line. He includes a new pill (name bubble) color that is based off of the color of the Galaxy’s Edge buildings. This figure will be available for pre-order today at 1 PM PST on Hasbro Pulse and other major retailers.
Keeping with the modular concept for their playsets, Hasbro announced an amazing A New Hope/Rogue One inspired Tantive 4 playset. This set is so modular that you can buy as many as you’d like as they will combine in a number of ways. While no packaged shots were shown, it was stated that the Tantive will come in Star Wars packaging but the carded Rebel Fleet trooper, now with PhotoReal deco, will be on a Rogue One card back.
Hasbro chose the Rogue One card back for the Fleet Trooper as they are going to celebrate Rogue One’s 5th anniversary next year with a “mini-beat” focus. And to add to that, they are releasing an updated Darth Vader on a Rogue One card. The figure will include a newly sculpted torso and an updated helmet, lightsaber, and robe. Both Vader and the Tantive will be available for pre-order today at 1 PM PST on Hasbro Pulse and other major retailers.
