Now that Solo: A Star Wars Story has been released on Digital Download (which we have already watched twice) we can’t help but to speculate about what Hasbro will offer fans of the film over next 14 months!
With some key characters from the film still missing in the 3 ¾” line, Hasbro has time before the Episode IX onslaught of merchandising takes place to really finish out the Force Link 2.0 line completely, which is something they haven’t had a chance to do with the four previous Disney-era films. This is, of course, understandable due to the pace of motion picture content Lucasfilm is currently putting out but with this break in media (pending next month’s Star Wars: Resistance series doesn’t commandeer store shelves) Hasbro has the potential to create a fully-flushed out and fantastic movie line.
For the Solo figures, they have already made, check out our Solo: A Collecting Guide. And for a toy discussion about all things Solo-related check this week’s episode of TOY RUN: The Star Wars Action Figure Cast.
The following are our suggestions on how Hasbro could finish the SOLO: A Star Wars Story Force Link 2.0 line. And while there are loads of characters missing from the lists below we attempted, for the most part, to create realistic suggestions by taking into consideration the reusing of some preexisting sculpts, main character vs background character balance and price points already in place.
