Based on the our report from yesterday regarding the new Hero Series product names (Zeus and Vesta) found online, there is speculation/coincidence that these may be the first indicators that products for the untitled Han Solo movie could rely on Greek/Roman mythology to mask the character names from the film. Thoughts?
UPDATE 11/17: Names found so far: Zeus, Athena, Vesta, Hercules, Hermes, Artemis, Minotaur, Gorgon, Pegasus (Millennium Falcon), and Cronus

Last week we posted about Hasbro’s “value” line of 6″ figures which are essentially a middle ground between the traditional 3.75″ 5 POA action figures and the 12″ Hero Series line. Toys”R”Us Hong Kong has a link for all of these figures revealing others in the assortment including Darth Vader, Kylo Ren, First Order Stormtrooper and First Order Snowtrooper.
Back in February, we speculated that Hasbro may start up another 6″ scale of limited articulation figures similar to the 12″ Hero Series. It looks like that has indeed come to pass as a new image out of Hong Kong shows a new Finn figure. Hasbro has done this with their Marvel line as well with the figures sold through dollar stores and the like. No word yet as to US availability.
