Toy Fair 2017 : Star Wars by Hasbro



Star Wars Black Series : General & Centerpiece Collection

The centerpiece collection will comprise of a central display and static figure, the display will have light FX. Each set will have foot pegs to allow other figures to be added to bolster the diorama. The first two sets are Luke Snowspeeder Hoth and Darth Vader.

The 2017 announced figures were also on display - Royal Guard, Lando, Tusken Raider (same figure will appear in 40th Anniversary Set), Qui-Gon and Hera.

The smaller 3" Diecast Titanium figures were also shown.

Star Wars Black Series : Exclusives

The 6" R5-D4 was originally touted as an Entertainment Earth exclusive, but it has since been rebadged as being a Game Stop US exclusive. This looks to also be on a 40th Anniversary card (see below)

Target will get the exclusive 6" AT-ACT driver from Rogue One

Walmart will get 3.75" figure exclusive. Ponda Baba, Tusken Raider, Sandtrooper, Proto Fett

Star Wars Black Series : 40th Anniversary

We are getting a 6" Jawa in the Black Series. It will be part of the 40th anniversary vintage card wave. The figure is fully molded, no soft goods.

There is also (as expected) the Death Star Trooper. He will come in the screen accurate black and not the grey we saw on the vintage figure.

There is a 40th Anniversary Legacy Set which is reminiscent of the Early Bird set. This contains a 6" new sculpt Darth Vader with a stand that can display 12 figures.

We originally thought Vader would also come carded as a single release, it was confirmed later that the figure would only come in the Early Bird stand set. He will be carded within the pack so fans can choose to open him, or display him carded along with the other 11 figures.

Wave 1 of the Vintage 40th Anniversary 6" collection is Leia, Luke, Han, Ben Kenobi and R2-D2. Leia has been confirmed as having an updated head sculpt, and the Luke also has some significant differences to the head sculpt. This wave will hit around April 2017. The Wave assortment for the first five figures has been released as 8 figures per case. Obi-Wan, Leia, Luke are packed two per case. Han and R2-D2 are single packed.

Wave 2 will be Chewbacca, Jawa, Death Star Trooper, Stormtrooper, Tusken Raider and C-3PO and will hit around June 2017

Celebration will then get the exclusive Luke X-Wing on the same packaging, but with a foil backing.

Hasbro have confirmed the four new figures - Jawa, Death Star Trooper, Vader and Tusken Raider - will get a release in the main range in the standard packaging at a later date.
