Solo: A Star Wars Story

Target's Solo: A Star Wars Story Force Link 2.0 Vandor-1 Heist Target Exclusive Playset Out Now

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, August 5, 2018

While they showed up last week, fans who found it were denied at check-out.  The embargo on the Solo: A Star Wars Story Force Link 2.0 Vandor-1 Heist was lifted early on Sunday, so now if you want one you can get it for $44.99.   For your handy-dandy toy locating, mark down DPCI 087-16-0136 when hunting to verify if one is near you.

SDCC: Solo: A Star Wars Story 3 3/4-Inch Reveals

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, July 21, 2018

3629 After the first few waves came and went without a standard Han in it, we were wondering what future was there for Solo toys.  The good news is Hasbro was more than ready for us, with several of the principle characters getting toys in the very near future.   Val will join L3-37, Tobias Beckett, Rio Durant, Han Solo as Imperial Infantry, and Quay Tolsite.

3630 At this time it was not specified if these figures were singles, 2-packs, or exclusives somewhere.  But they look pretty ready to go, so there's that.

After a pretty dry run, it's nice to see a big shot of variety, newness, and something we can recognize in this line.  Even if it's from a movie you didn't see, probably.  But that's not my fault - it was a fun movie and you should've gone to see it by now!   Read on for more images.

Available Now: Solo: A Star Wars Story - Wind-Up Fight Droids

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, May 27, 2018

3587 Disney theme parks are selli Solo: A Star Wars Story - Wind-Up Fight Droids for $9.95 (plus shipping).  The Astromech 4-pack isn't online at this time - I still need to get one, myself - but this 2-pack is. The listing says they're 3 3/4-inches, so I assume that means they'll fit nicely next to Hasbro figures.  Order yours here.

Toy Fair Gallery - Hasbro Star Wars Misc Goodies

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, February 17, 2018

3578 And the rest of the non-toddler stuff!   There are 12-inch figures, a new wave of Micro Force just hit in the last week (and can be seen here), plus there are more lightsabers.  The real surprise to me was a smaller Force Link 2.0-enabled Millennium Falcon which is not figure compatible.

Toy Fair Gallery - Hasbro Star Wars Solo Millennium Falcon (the figure one)

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, February 17, 2018

3562 While putzing around Hasbro's showroom, I got a look at the decent - not huge - new Millennium Falcon.  What was interesting was that a lot of it was blocked out - there's a thing between the mandibles that could well be cargo or an escape pod.  The box doesn't specify in its current state, but we do get a look at the ship from oh so many angles.  Packaging, too.  You want to see this.  Read on.

Toy Fair Gallery - Hasbro Star Wars Solo (and The Last Jedi) Force Link Action Figures and Toys

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, February 17, 2018

3544 Hasbro has a small line of Solo product, and we haven't seen it all yet.   3 3/4-inch action figures will be joined by some returning favorites, while others were rescued by an online etailer.

Some notes:

2-packs include Muddy Han and Chewbacca, plus Lando and "guard." 

Force Link 2.0 syncs with your phone to download more phrases.  It's backward compatible with 1.0, and theoretically could expand for a while now.

Wampa is still coming.  A non-exclusive Mimban Stormtrooper is coming.  Maz is coming.

Toy Fair Gallery - Hasbro Star Wars Black Series 6-Inch Action Figures

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, February 17, 2018

3512 Uploading pictures takes a while, and there are a bunch of them.   New The Black Series action figures include: Gamorrean Guard (Target exclusive), Astromech Droids R5-D8 & R2-X2 & R2-D2 (Amazon), Hoth Leia, Commander Wolffe (Gamestop/Disney/Barnes & Noble shared), Zuckuss (Toys R Us), Skiff Guard Lando, Han Solo, Qi-Ra, Lando Calrissian (Solo), Tobias Beckett, Range Trooper, and a Mimban Stormtrooper (Walmart).  That's a lot of stuff.

The Porg 2-pack is a value-priced item.  Available very, very soon. (Very soon.)

More Hasbro Solo: A Star Wars Story Press Images

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, February 16, 2018

3480 But wait - there's more!   Hasbro sent along another press release with images of a new Nerf blaster, new lightsabers, and an animatronic Chewbacca toy that's shaping up to be this year's most expensive new item.  

Not in the actual press release (but in the images) is a new Galactic Heroes Millennium Falcon which should be out with the rest of the Spring movie launch stuff.

Here is what we were sent:

Solo: A Star Wars Story The Black Series Action Figures

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, February 14, 2018

3476 The subtext of Solo: A Star Wars Story seems to be that this is clearly Childish Gambino's year.  I don't care what the movie title is, this is the Lando movie and the very first official Donald Glover Lando Calrissian reveal is in the 6-inch action figure line.  It's awesome.   (Are you watching Atlanta?  You should watch that.)  But I digress - the figures will follow the same pattern as usual.  Will new figures slip out early thanks to the same assortment running since 2015?  It's possible!  But here's what Hasbro has to say:

STAR WARS: THE BLACK SERIES Action Figures

STAR WARS: THE BLACK SERIES 6-INCH Figure Assortment
(Ages 4 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: $19.99/Available: Spring 2018)
Take your STAR WARS collection to the next level with these incredibly detailed figures. These premium 6-inch scale figures are designed with extensive detail and articulation for the ultimate collector. Characters include HAN SOLO, LANDO CALRISSIAN, and more. Each figure sold separately. Available at most major retailers and on HasbroToyShop.com.

Solo: A Star Wars Story Force Link 2.0 Starter Set

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, February 14, 2018

3475 One of the more fascinating ideas (with a closed execution) is back with the Force Link 2.0 Starter Set.  (Completists have 3 of version 1.0 by now.)   The new hotness includes younger Han Solo, a blaster, and.. well, you read it.  It is  backward compatible (I asked) and there may be other surprises baked in - but we'll have to wait and see what the final toy can do.  Check out the Millennium Falcon-inspried detailing.

STAR WARS FORCE LINK 2.0 STARTER SET
(Ages 4 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: $29.99/Available: Spring 2018)
Bring STAR WARS adventures to life with the newly designed FORCE LINK 2.0 STARTER SET including FORCE LINK wearable technology, which allows fans to activate movie sound effects and phrases in more than 30 compatible STAR WARS toys!

Solo: A Star Wars Story 3 3/4-Inch Action FIgure Tease

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, February 14, 2018

3470 Solo: A Star Wars Story wouldn't be a toy line without 3 3/4-inch action figures.   From the photos, these may be Hasbro's finest sculpts and decorations yet - get a gander at the human likenesses.  Ths is a preview of them - more are coming, so there will still be things to reveal between now and... well, I can't divulge that just yet.  At least two figures may be just different enough to make you mad.   Hasbro says:

3471 STAR WARS 3.75-INCH FIGURE Assortment
(Ages 4 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: $7.99/Available: Spring 2018)
Enter the world of STAR WARS and launch into action and adventure! Each 3.75-inch figure features five points of articulation and comes with unique battle accessories.

Solo: A Star Wars Millennium Falcon Refit

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, February 14, 2018

3468 I should be packing, but Hasbro sent along a shot of the most excellent flagship... ship.   Let's let them talk about it while I upload photos and listen to The Ramones albums.

SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY 3.75-INCH KESSEL RUN MILLENNIUM FALCON VEHICLE
 (Ages 4 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: $99.99/Available: Spring 2018)
