Today is the start of Lucasfilm’s latest advertising campaign entitled Mando Mondays!
After premiering last fall and quickly taking the world by storm, The Mandalorian — which took home seven awards last week during the 2020 Primetime Emmy Awards — will return for its highly anticipated second season Friday, October 30, on Disney+. But first, fans will have access to select pre-orders on new products inspired by the hit Lucasfilm series.
Disney and Lucasfilm today announced “Mando Mondays,” an all-new global consumer products, games, and publishing program kicking off on October 26, that will debut goods inspired by the show.
After fans experience the latest episode every Friday on Disney+, they can visit MandoMondays.com each Monday to see what new toys, collectibles, apparel, books, comics, digital content, and more will be unveiled. Mando Mondays will run for nine weeks, culminating on December 21.
The highlight of today’s announcement was the inclusion of multiple Hasbro pre-orders for both The Black Series and The Vintage Collection. Most of the pre-orders today were fairly easy to acquire and six hours later many of them are still in stock. Hasbro’s announcements today include two new sublines for their popular action figure scales. For The Black Series, the Credit Collection line consists of new repaints of multiple characters from The Mandalorian. A unique approach was taken when it comes to the card art as they used images for the concept art that plays during the credits and each includes a role-play Imperial Credit. The new Vintage Collection subline takes a page from The Black Series as four characters from The Mandalorian have received the Carbonite treatment. Each of these exclusives pre-order links can be found in the press release below.
