Hasbro's PR team kindly sent along a press release with many new and some neewish exclusives! More are coming this fall, but for now, here's a look at what you can expect on (or around) Friday, September 30. None of the 3 3/4-inch figure exclusives are listed here, but 6-inch, prop replicas, Nerf guns, and more await you after the jump.
Ultimate Studio Edition Star Wars Collectibles are now up for grabs at http://collectibles.starwars.com/. This new product line is yet another prop replica maker, with one key difference - these ones boast even more authenticity, and are priced (and packaged) accordingly. Eight pieces are up for grabs now, all from The Force Awakens, including Vader's melted helmet (pictured) as a limited edition of 500 for $3,500.
Over in another place where they speak English, a number of companies have put out little weekly magazine-with-figure or magazine-with-parts to build something really big. DeAgostini is doing a 1:1 replica of an 808mm (32-inch) prop of the Millennium Falcon from The Empire Strikes Back in this format, with 100 "issues" of parts and pieces at £8.99-£10.99 per - so it gets pretty expensive.

If we hear more about distribution in other territories, we'll post that too.
Another costume licensor! C2E2 allowed Anovos to debut its Star Wars wares after it put out some top-notch gear from Star Trek and Battlestar Galactica. Previously Windlass Studios put out some top-notch costumes for Padme, Anakin, and others. Anovos has shown Luke Skywalker's Bespin togs from The Empire Strikes Back, some high-end Revenge of the Sith Clone Trooper armor, Han Solo's holster from the original Star Wars, and the prototype for their first Darth Vader costume.
