Hasbro sent along a bunch of goodies today, plus a new press release! First up: the Star Wars Bladebuilders Jedi Knight Lightsaber. With a gold blade and purple light daggers, it's pretty spiffy. The press release says:

Available at most major retailers and on HasbroToyShop.com.
Hey kids, it's Unkar Plutt! This 2016 figure has a removable hand and a claw replacement - serious toy stuff. You might even be able to find this figure at a store near you still, as he wasn't necessarily the most popular bad guy in the movie - get him if you can. Read on!
Today it's the swell Sergeant Jyn Erso (Ground Crew Disguise) figure! This is interesting - it seems Jyn's body is the same as the regular ground crew figure, only with a different head and some new accessories. It's great! Read on.
Previously known as the Shock Trooper, the 6-inch version of this figure said Coruscant Guard on the box. The red and white Clone has marvelous paint applications including big scratches and awesome scuffing that make it look like it had seen some action. It's also part of a swell four-pack. Read on!
Rounding out the main group of Rogue One heroes, it's the pilot! Bodhi Rook is fairly loaded with gear, including a cool blaster and a backpack that actually looks like the gizmo in the movie. You can take his vest off, but the goggles are part of his head. I haven't seen this one in stores yet - so will you want to order yours online? Read on!
Ad: New stuff! Pre-Order New Hasbro and Funko Star Wars from Entertainment Earth! 6-inch action figures of Baze Malbus and Chirrut Imwe join a new Hikari Ice Storm First Order Snowtrooper from Funko.
Why wait? Pre-order yours today!
Hey, it's C-3PO! This is the Walgreens one and it's fantastic. I hope you got one to go with the R2-D2 I also hope you got. You can probably find one in a local store if you hit a few stores in your locale, but for now just enjoy this review. Read on!
This 212th Attack Battalion Utapau Trooper is one of four figures in the Entertainment Earth exclusive 4-pack available now. It sports some of the best battle-damage I've ever seen on a Hasbro action figure, plus it's exactly as articulated as previous Clone Trooper action figures. I love the little chips and dings in the orange areas, plus the dirt and scrapes are no slouch. Read on!
Today we look at Finn! But he's different - this is the one from the 2-pack with Phasma that just came out and you didn't get yet. His jacket is a different color and some details are just a tiny bit different. You know what that means - it's different enough to make you mad. Check it out, and read on!
Special thanks to Hasbro and their PR team for sending us this first look at Galen Erso, a character from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. (If you haven't seen it yet and consider this a spoiler, a month out, that's on you.) He includes a blaster and a Mouse Droid, which is a pretty nifty extra for those of us looking to populate that Death Star playset. The one we hope to get some day. Hopefully. Well, take a look - we've got a packaged shot and an unpackaged shot after the break.
You might not want another Captain Phasma, but this 3 3/4-inch one is interesting - it comes from Vietnam and not China, meaning we're talking new molds here. The deco is different, the height has changed, and some of the sculpted details were tweaked - but she has basically the same pose and design. Finn's even more interesting, but he's on tap for next week. Read on!
The hard-to-find Princess Leia Organa from the 6-inch line is pretty good. With any luck she'll get a little more distribution later in the year, but for now she's available in an assortment with 5 other new figures that is a little tough to come by. Read on!
What's this? Another C2-B5? Yup! One was from Disney, this one is from Hasbro. Their colors are just different enough so that they look like different droids, so I'd say you'd want to get both. Or you would, if it didn't require the purchase of the AT-ACT. (It's expensive.) Read on!
This smaller Captain Cassian Andor is exclusive to Walmart, and includes a swell three-piece weapon that serves as a pistol or a rifle. It also has a head sculpt that looks great with stubble that could maybe look great if you painted it better. I like this one a bunch. Read on!
Walmart's exclusive 3 3/4-inch Scarif Stormtrooper is pretty good. I've seen quite a few around in the last couple of days, and that means - I assume - there's an ample supply. It has thigh swivels, a cool blaster, and some excellent battle damage - did you get yours yet, and should you buy a bunch? Read on!
