We’ve updated our running list of upcoming and rumored products slated to hit stores and online throughout 2019. We’ve purged most of the released 2018 items from the list but they can still be found here for your reference.
The biggest complaint so far with Hasbro’s Galaxy of Adventures figures is the laziness in execution stemming from the recycling of previously used sculpts for the first two waves. Things may be changing in that regard in late 2019 as more new figures are introduced as well as vehicles and beasts. What is even more interesting is that we’re hearing of a potential scale change too (comparable scale and price to the 5” Marvel Infinity War line). That would essentially mean that there wouldn’t be two competing 3.75” lines vying for collectors dollars with just the Vintage Collection remaining. Toyfair 2019 is next month so we’ll have to see how/if/when this plays out.

Earlier this week, we posted updated details surrounding Hasbro’s “story in a box” assortment of figures – now known as Galaxy of Adventures. It looks like there will be (potentially) a lot more tie-ins as Lucasfilm as filed multiple trademarks for products featuring that name. Click on through for the listings.
Right before NYCC, we posted a report about an upcoming $10 assortment of Hasbro figures referred to as Star Wars: Story in a Box*. The first four figures include Darth Vader, Luke Skywalker, Chewbacca and R2-D2. After some further investigating, I’ve found there are four more of these sets (probably wave 2) that includes Princess Leia, Han Solo, Stormtrooper and Yoda. Watch for additional details on this product line soon.
As with all of our advanced rumor reports, details of these products are subject to change and/or cancellation altogether.
