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
Fans of Hot Wheels character cars can look forward to several new models tied to the launch of Solo: A Star Wars Story as well as other characters from the saga. I managed to find about 16 new individual UPCs and SKU for Han, Chewbacca, Lando, “Nemesis”, “Hades”, Nien Nunb and others. I also found what looks to be a new line of “Lightsaber Series Vehicles” featuring Rey and Darth Vader. You can find all of the UPCs/SKUs listed toward the bottom of our 2018 Master List.

Mattel’s line of Hot Wheels Diecast All-Terrain Character Cars show no signs of slowing down. Recently, the Kylo Ren and Rey car joined Luke Skywalker, BB-8, Darth Vader and First Order Stormtrooper. The next releases in the line will include Han Solo, Chewbacca , Yoda, and R2-D2. The pertinent UPC and WM SKU numbers are listed below.

“What a piece of junk!”
“She may not look like much, but she’s got it where it counts, kid”
“This bucket of bolts is never gonna get us past that blockade”
“Then we just float away…” “…with the rest of the garbage”
“She’s the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy”
“The garbage will do”
“Blast that piece of junk out of the sky!”
The Millennium Falcon has always been the subject of mockery in terms of its appearance, but there was a time when the Falcon was all-new. Han said he made some “special modifications” and soon we’ll get to see what it looked before Han took ownership. With Solo: A Star Wars Story coming out in a few months, be prepared to start seeing a fresh, slightly sleeker depiction (and a slightly different silhouette) for one of the most iconic starships in film. And as you’d expect, we’ll be seeing a wide range of toys and collectibles from Hasbro, Mattel, LEGO and more as well.
