Sith Happens - Star Wars Sith Trooper Invades SDCC

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, July 10, 2019

The official Star Wars site, PR people, and all sorts of fans saw the news that you can See the New Sith Trooper from Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker at SDCC 2019.  This means that the people behind the movies now know what smart, handsome toy professionals have known for years - red looks good on Stormtroopers.

Funko, Hasbro, Loungefly, Topps, Rubie's (Hi Lenny!), Hot Toys, and more - interestingly, not Mattel - will be selling some first-look Sith Trooper action figures.  For those with memory issues, Hasbro has done "sneak preview" The Black Series figures for all of the Disney-era movies except for Solo, and nearly identical figures were released with different packaging and sometimes without some accessories later.

The presentation had Doctor Aphra and her droids, plus the previously seen Chopper and Ezra Bridger. More surprising were 20th Anniversary Episode I "vintage" packaging for Celebration in Chicago.

SDCC - Reveals Continue with The Last Jedi Star Wars Figures

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, July 18, 2017
