The Hasbro Fan Media Event offered up news from a variety of lines and brands, and Star Wars was no exception! Here's what was covered:

It's the 40th Anniversary!
- The Black Series 6-inch is in full effect:
- -Jawa with molded cape
- - Death Squad Commander with removable helmet
- - An Early Bird pack or "40th Anniversary Legacy Pack" is coming, with pegs for all 12 original early bird figures.
- - Wave 1 has Darth Vader, Leia (with updated and improved sculpt!), Ben (Obi-Wan) Kenobi, Han Solo, Artoo-Detoo (R2-D2), and Luke Skywalker (all with the vintage cardbacks). Available for pre-order right now at!
- - Wave 2 in June with Chewbacca, See-Threepio (C-3PO), Stormtrooper, Jawas, Death Squad Commander, and Sand People.
- - Star Wars Celebration Orlando 2017 and San Diego Comic-Con exclusive Luke Skywalker (X-Wing Pilot) with foil-back card
- - Obi-Wan Kenobi Force FX Lightsaber (die-cast handle, lights, the usual high quality stuff)
- - Poe Dameron role play helmet with three "surround sound" speakers and retractable yellow visor

- The Nerf line continues with a huge First Order Stormtrooper megablaster (lights, sounds, etc)

- The Black Series 6-inch Centerpiece line (dynamic pose statues on environmental light-up dioramas) is just getting warmed up:
- - Darth Vader prowling through the Tantive IV, with light up smoldering lightsaber "slice" marks on the door, and a blaster bolt exploding along the side of the door frame.

- Black Series 6-inch exclusives coming from Target (AT-ACT Driver) and Game Stop (R5-D4)
- Force Friday reminder (9/1/2017)
- 6-inch The Force Awakens Jedi Master Luke Skywalker is in fact coming (they show some 3D models, and the beard and arm is looking awesome)
