New Galactic Heroes! Hasbro was kind enough to send along some of their NYCC reveals. New York Comic Con has a press event running alongside the show. Unmasked Kylo Ren vs. Rey, Chewbacca vs. First Order TIE Pilot, and an AT-AT were show! There are big weapons, clever gimmicks, and bigger, jointed figures that you probably previously also saw as Jedi Force a few years ago. More pictures after the jump? Sure! But you can also see all of this stuff on our Tumblr. Follow us there for more!
We have uploaded photos from Hasbro's Toy Fair showroom. The Black Series and Star Wars Rebels presentation was underwhelming to say the least, but understandable given the focus on Episode 7, which we should begin seeing by SDCC.
We've read a few reports, most notable from the Yakface.com forums, that the long-delayed AT-ST from Galactic Heroes has arrived! Retail is $34.99. Originally slated as a September Kohl's exclusive last year, the item has been in limbo since showing up in the UK. But now? Toys "R" Us is getting it. Read more at Yakface.com!
Preview night was the normal bustle of critical mass as attendees try to cover the Comic-Con floor, check out the latest and greatest, and buy their exclusives all in the span of 2 1/2 hours. Hasbro once again gives a good showcase centered around a huge and masterfully done Hoth diorama, complete with key scenes from Echo Base and a spectacular recreation of the battle of Hoth.
