Hasbro Announces STAR WARS Comic-Con Exclusives, New 3.75 Inch Line, and More

Hasbro‘s Star Wars exclusive toy (or toys) for San Diego Comic-Con International is always a hot topic of conversation, and this year they’ve announced two. In keeping with tradition, they’re deluxe versions of figures–and a vehicle–that will be available in more no-frills form at retail later on. Grand Admiral Thrawn, above, comes with all of his trophies and in a special trophy room diorama box; like previous 6-inch Black Series figures based on Rebels, he’ll be done in a more realistic style than the cartoon, though you might not say the same of all his accessories. He’s $49.99.

STAR WARS THE BLACK SERIES 6-INCH GRAND ADMIRAL THRAWN - SDCC Exclusive (1)

Also in the 6-inch scale, Luke Skywalker and his Landspeeder, announced this past week, will get a more elaborate version with pop-up hood and engine, along with a poncho for Luke. That’ll add up to $89.99.

STAR WARS THE BLACK SERIES X-34 LANDSPEEDER & 6-INCH LUKE SKYWALKER - SDCC Exclusive (2)

For the last two years, Hasbro has done early releases of the first figure from the next movie: Jyn Erso last year, and a First Order Stormtrooper in 2015. If there’s one planned for this year, it was not announced.

But here’s what’s coming for mass retail:

STAR WARS THE BLACK SERIES 6-INCH TARKIN Figure

You see, Lord Vader, they can be rrrrreasonable! Peter Cushing in this scale is long overdue, and the Interrogation Droid sweetens the deal. And while Grand Moff Tarkin saw new life on the big screen, our next figure was retconned out of it.

STAR WARS THE BLACK SERIES 6-INCH JAINA SOLO Figure - Fan Figure Vote 2016 Winner (1)

Yes, it’s Jaina Solo, the sister Kylo Ren never had. We’d bet that the female Rebel pilot body will be used again. Rounding out the new 6-inch offerings are a couple of retailer exclusives: Clone Commander Gree (Toys R Us) and Battlefront II Inferno Squadron Pilot (Gamestop). You can see their images in our full gallery below.

Now, if you’re a 3.75″ collector–the classic Star Wars scale–Hasbro has heard your dissatisfaction with the lack of articulation in the main line, and is bringing back the vintage collection, with full poseability. Who’ll be in it? Well, to some extent, that’s up to you: they’re conducting a fan vote to determine a character who has never been made into a figure before. Want in? Head to StarWars.com for full details. (And vote for Jefferson Starship from the Holiday Special! Or, you know, whoever.)

Are you going to brave the Comic-Con hordes for Thrawn and Luke? Will the Force be with you? Tell us in comments.
