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.

Continuing their tradition of convention exclusives, Hallmark has announced a few more additions for this year including a new Boba Fett Itty Bitty figure complete with Vintage inspired blister card. You can check out this exclusive and more at SDCCBlog.org.
