Today various media outlets across the web debuted the first official looks at some of the toy that will accompany this May’s release of Solo: A Star Wars Story. We expect to get better looks at these figures and more this weekend during New York’s Toy Fair 2018.
The Millennium Falcon
No Han Solo movie toy line could exist without his trusty steed and Hasbro brings us yet another new version to collect. Now this version was a no-brainier after the official trailer and posters dropped last week. Here we see the Falcon in its previous form with a “new” radar dish, turret gun and front end. Now this playset/vehicle will feature lots of removable panels, electronics, and what we are assuming is either a spoiler or just very smart move by Hasbro, a removable front end. We also speculate that the Han figure that is included will be exclusive to the set and the container accessory he is holding will have to do something with his train heist.
Force Link 2.0
We get our first official look at the updated Force Link gauntlet which will accompany this entire line much like it did for The Last Jedi. Much like its predecessor, the Starter Set will include a figure as well. This Han will most likely be exclusive to this $29.99 set.
Force Link 2.0 Basic Figures
Entertainment Weekly ended its preview with a look at a few of the 3 3/4″ figures to be released in the line. Two new figures who will be joining the action figure world is Qi’ra and a new Chewbacca with double-bandoleer. These Force Link-enabled figures will most likely be available in the first wave of figures released. Joining them in the line will be three upgraded-reissues. K-2SO will be now be Force Link compatible. As will Jedi Master Luke Skywalker (hopefully with Mark Hamill lines this time) and Maz Kanatta with her rocket backpack cameo accessory. These figures will continue their current pricing of $7.99 at most large retailers.
The Black Series 6″ Figures
Gizmodo gives up our first look at four new 6″ Black Series figures. Han Solo, Qi’ra, Lando Calrissian and Imperial Range Trooper. Three of the four figures featured were to be expected based off the promotional material already seen for Solo but the Ranger Trooper is a fantastic looking figure not previously seen or known. Look for these figures this Spring.
