HasbroToyShop has opened orders for their SDCC exclusive Thrawn, Rey and Luke, and Luke with Landspeeder.
UPDATE: Thrawn – out of stock
The exclusives, the news, the reveals!
Force Friday is a few short weeks away and (aside from a few leaks) Star Wars fans have little idea what to expect. But some news was had at the two big Star Wars events in July — D23 and SDCC!
For Canada residents planning on attending Fan Expo 2017 (Aug. 31-Sept. 3), the #HasbroStore will be be returning again this year and they will be offering the exclusives from this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. This includes Star Wars, Marvel, Transformers, G.I.Joe and more.

Gentle Giant is now taking preorders for their Jumbo Kenner Early Bird 4-pack that was revealed at SDCC last week. This set includes 4 previously sold out figures (Chewbacca, Princess Leia, R2-D2 and Luke Skywalker with Telescoping Lightsaber) all presented is a special display box, white mailer tray, stickers and display stand.
There still seems to be A LOT of confusion/misinformation regarding the differences between the SDCC exclusive version of the X-34 Landspeeder with Luke Skywalker and the retail version hitting shelves in September. Steve Evans from Hasbro has posted what we hope clears things up once and for all.
• Both exclusive and retail versions have the SAME ACCESSORIES* (sort of).
*Retail version has regular tunic material for Luke (SDCC has premium material)
• Exclusive has premium display packaging, retail has closed box for speeder (does have window for figure)
• Exclusive has more DECO on speeder
• Exclusive has moving engine turbine, retail version doesn’t
Not mentioned is that Luke as a new likeness, different from the Black Series #21 and 40th Anniversary releases.
Sponsor Big Bad Toy Store is now taking preorders for the SDCC Exclusive Movie Realization Boba Fett (Prototype/White Moon Armor) figure from Tamashii Nations.
Hasbro* has sent an update to media outlets regarding the revised availability of their SDCC Exclusives. Originally slated for an August 14 release on HasbroToyShop.com, the indicate that they will now be offered sometime in September.
“Hi Star Wars fans,
Hope you’re having a great weekend! We wanted to reach out to clarify that the availability date for the Hasbro Star Wars SDCC exclusives on Hasbro Toy Shop has changed to September.”

Personal Note: Seems like what we saw today is leaning in the right direction again for the 3.75″ brand. Who can’t be happy with that new 3.75″ scale Wampa? Or Probe Droid? Many of us in our forums have been pushing for those quite a bit the past 2 years, so maybe Hasbro actually IS listening more now (like they indicated in panels and interviews today)?
Hasbro has revealed several new 6″ Black Series figures during their SDCC panel including:
