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. Watch for additional details on this product line soon.
As with all of our advanced rumor reports, details of these products are subject to change and/or cancellation altogether.
*Officially named “Galaxy of Adventures”
For those curious about Hasbro releasing new figures for the upcoming Star Wars: Resistance animated series, I can confirm today (via some online digging) that there are at least 6 figures (Kaz and Torra to name a couple) so far and they are a mix of Resistance and First Order characters. Stay tuned later this week for additional info on these figures and more.
Updated with character/figure names

Like previous merchandise launches (The Force Awakens, Rogue One, The Last Jedi), multiple waves of 6″ Black Series may make it into the hands of collectors via retail (brick and mortar and online) for the launch of Solo: A Star Wars Story products in April. Wave 16 has already started showing up in advance of the street date and Wave 17 may be hot on its heels.
You saw the official reveal the other day for the new Finn, Poe and Yoda Mighty Muggs. We managed to find a few more in the works. Click on through for the list.

With The Last Jedi in the rear view mirror for many, we can continue our focus to products for Solo: A Star Wars. As a refresher, we revealed through several articles (below in reverse chronological order going back to October) new products from Hasbro and Mattel.
Stay tuned for a more accurate breakdown of the first wave (wave 16?) of 6″ Black Series figures that will include characters from Solo: A Star Wars Story very soon.
Also, a friendly tip: 99% of the products with UPCs that we have shared over the months, can be found directly on Amazon.com and Walmart.com with a little app-fu and the barcode scanner built into their respective apps. You’re welcome :).
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 01/5/18: Names found so far: Zeus (Han), Athena (Qi’Ra), Vesta, Hercules (Chewbacca), Hermes (Lando), Artemis, Minotaur (Mimban), Gorgon, Cyclops, Perseus, Pegasus (Millennium Falcon), and Cronus (Moloch)
There are already two TLJ figures that feature packaging variants in the 3.75″ line. The first one, found over the weekend, switches the placement of the Porg and bowcaster accessories included with Chewbacca. The second is for General Hux which switches the position of the mouse droid (and turns it 90 degrees) and blaster. I know this info super serves a very small segment of collectors but as someone that likes to document these things, I thought I’d share it all the same.
Hey, if a major outlet like Yahoo can share a deleted video showing off officially unannounced products for Force Friday 2, it’s got to be okay, right?
UPDATE: Hasbro has blocked the commercial linked to in the article.
They say the eyes are the window to the soul. I’d say that Hasbro is betting on them being a window to your wallet as well as Amazon.es has also leaked the Interactive Porg (“IP Beak”) online. Head on over to check it out while it’s still there.
