The first Hasbro exclusive for San Diego 2018 has been confirmed, and it is a Star Wars 3.75" Vintage Collection 3-pack. The set, in classic retro 3-pack packaging, see's the first appearance of Dr Aphra who will get a single release later in 2018 as part of the main line. Accompanying Aphra are the two droids that accompany her on her adventures in the Marvel comicbook series, Triple zero and Beetee (0-0-0 and BT-1)
The set will be on sale at SDCC 2018 for $50 and there is an indication in the press release (below) that limited stocks may make their way to select other conventions - which if they follow suit with last year may include London Film & Comic Con (6" Rex). Stocks will also go on sale to the US market via Hasbro Toy Shop after the event.
It is not clear at this stage if Beetee and Triple Zero will get a future single card release.
