Looks like there will be more opportunities for kids to roleplay along with their favorite Forces of Destiny characters. I found a listing for a new “Force Crystal Lightsaber” via a foreign retailer. I’d expect it to start hitting retail sometime in the first quarter of 2018.
After some mindless SKU searching via Brickseek this evening, I managed to find a few Hasbro role-play masks listed for Solo: A Star Wars Story. Like others, the product/characters are obscured with mythological code names. The above listings have been added to the Master List we’re continuing to compile.
Update: According to Amazon, “Hercules” is Chewbacca, “Vesta Guard” is a Range Trooper and the “Vesta Trooper” is a Stormtrooper
Update 2: Click on through for product descriptions of each mask
We’ve been getting several requests to assemble a master list of current and pending UPCs, Target DPCIs and Walmart SKUs for Hasbro (and other brands) and have them readily available from our front page (see it over in the right hand column now). Your wish is our command. Click on through to check out what we have so far for Hasbro. We will continue to update this list as new products are revealed, found or leaked (and as time permits).
Update: A little tip – with the provided UPC numbers, you can find Amazon pages for nearly all of the listings.
You can see the updated list for 2018 here.
