Hasbro Shares Star Wars Black Series Details for Force Friday

It’s Force Friday! At midnight tonight, stores have the green light to finally put Star Wars products out on the shelf. There’s a ton of it, and Hasbro has shared the official pics and descriptions. We’re going to focus it on the Star Wars Black Series 6-inch offerings.

We’ve seen some product line extensions in 6-inch. In addition to single-carded figures, we’re seeing more vehicles and a completely new line that includes 6-inch scaled statues plus environments, which you can plus up by adding your own Black Series figures to the scene.

Finally, if you’re sensitive to spoilers (even minor ones), you might want to skip this article. I try to stay away from entertainment news, but the product line-ups may reveal characters and story details that might tell you too much for your taste.

May the Force be with you!

More Hasbro Rogue One A Star Wars Story Toys

If you were wondering where the 3.75-inch figures were in yesterday’s Star Wars reveals from Hasbro (http://afpics.link/2bGG8ir), they couldn’t be contained in a single announcement! But there’s more.

Hasbro also shared their role play items, which include a voice changer Death Trooper mask and a pretty cool update to their Stormtrooper voice changer helmet.

LEGO Reveals Seven New Sets for Star Wars: The Force Awakens

LEGO Star Wars The Force Awakens

LEGO has been busy revealing images of their seven (!) new sets for The Force Awakens over the course of the day, but didn’t release details on each until we officially hit Force Friday. I’m still trying to avoid spoilers, so I haven’t paid much attention to what’s actually been announced – but it’s nice to see that a lot of the iconic vehicles from the Original Trilogy are still represented.

Hasbro Reveals Official Star Wars Black Series 6-Inch Details

Star Wars The Force Awakens Black Series

Since it’s officially Force Friday on the east coast, Hasbro has released the official details on its Star Wars offerings for this Fall. I’ve been doing my best to avoid as much hype as possible for The Force Awakens – I’m trying to recapture that feeling I had when I saw the original movies as a kid, knowing nothing about what I was about to see. I know, it’s pipe dream. In any case, by avoiding the news, I’ve managed to know next to nothing about the toys coming our way. So while this may be old news to everyone else, it’s new to me! 😀

Hasbro has a ton of product coming out – I am going to limit the this post to the Star Wars Black Series line. Unsurprisingly, almost all of the regular and retailer exclusive releases are for The Force Awakens. But there is one exception.
