I made a couple late additions and corrections to the official “Unofficial Checklist” for tomorrow’s Solo: A Star Wars Story merchandise launch. Give it another peek to so you have the most recent information including today’s surprise reveals.
Here it is! Our official “unofficial” checklist for this Friday’s merchandise launch for Solo: A Star Wars Story. Within the pages you will find the recent officially announced products as well unannounced products that we’ve been revealing exclusively here for months. Brands covered are Hasbro, Funko, LEGO, Mattel, and Jakks Pacific. There are several products that are on the list that will come out throughout the year* (i.e. not available on Friday, April 13) but I felt it best to include them anyway so you can plan ahead. They are coded with red boxes for easy identification.
This is version 1.0 so if there are any major announcements prior to Friday, I will add them.
*Subject to change/cancellation
Disney and Lucasfilm has issued a press release detailing some of the new products set for launch this Friday for Solo: A Star Wars Story – some of which you read about here first. Click on through for the press release and image gallery revealing products from Hasbro, LEGO, Funko and more.
Leaked/rumored for some time now, LEGO has officially revealed details via StarWars.com for the upcoming UCS Y-Wing. Look for it in store and online on May 4th.
After doing some research in preparation for the release of our checklist for the Solo: A Star Wars Story merchandise launch next month. I’ve been able to find a bit more info for figures coming beyond wave 1 which we teased back in February.
Another web search has turned up new information for wave 2 of the Force Link 2 assortment of Star Wars figures. It appears Qi’ra and Chewbacca will be carried forward from wave 1, plus new figure code named “Chronos*” , Kylo Ren, Supreme Leader Snoke (which we first revealed here) and Princess Leia (Hoth Outfit) are added to the mix.
All info has been added to our 2018 Master List for easy reference.
*Chronos’ code name represents Moloch, per the reveal LEGO sets for Solo: A Star Wars Story.
The (paid) PR circuit continues with LEGO unveiling the Kessel Run Millennium Falcon (75212) from Solo: A Star Wars Story via The Hollywood Reporter.
As we continue to assemble our upcoming checklist for the product launch on April 13 for Solo: A Star Wars Story, we’ve heard of two more vehicles coming as part of the Class B assortment. One is a repack from The Last Jedi – the A-Wing Fighter with Tallie, the other is rumored to be Han’s Landspeeder (with Han) as seen in the leaked production photos as well as the LEGO set (75209). Considering the number of repacks and non-Solo film related figures/vehicles coming out that day, the merchandising tie-ins seem to be quite low – maybe lower than Rogue One.
