Fans of Hasbro's newest line of Star Wars toys will be getting all-new ways to play and adventure. During HASCON, the annual event where the toymaker shows off some of its most popular lines of toys, Hasbro unveiled the newest additions to its Force of Destiny line.

Among the new Adventure Dolls joining the ranks are a few male figures, including a Luke figure, who comes packaged with a small Yoda. A villain, Kylo Ren, has also been added to the collection. He will be packaged in a set with a brand-new Rey figure, tied into the upcoming release of The Last Jedi. The new Rey doll, the third in the series, is decked out in her brand-new costume from the sequel, and comes packaged with a tiny Porg friend. At least, as far as we can tell.

Hasbro has not yet released a list of all the new additions, but a few eagle-eyed fans who attended this weekend's festivities snapped a handful of helpful photos of the new collection.

A few other new figures joining the collection for the first time: Padme Amidala (mother to Luke and Leia) and Ahsoka Tano, the hero of the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Tano also comes with a small Lothcat friend.

The final figure added to the collection is a very special edition of the first Star Wars princess: Leia Organa. Princess Leia has already appeared twice in the Forces of Destiny line, sporting outfits from both Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi. This new Platinum Series Leia appears in her iconic white dress and hairstyle from A New Hope, and comes packaged with an R2-D2 figure and a blaster perfect for saving our skins.

The Star Wars Forces of Destiny line of toys and merchandise are the manufacturer's newest attempt to appeal to Star Wars fans of all ages and genders. The line originally premiered earlier this year to highlight the oft-overlooked female characters of the popular franchise, but the addition of Kylo and Luke prove that the series isn't just here for the girls.

The toys accompany a series of animated video shorts following each of the characters on new adventures in the Star Wars Universe. The first group of videos was released earlier this year, and a second will be released sometime in the future.

No word yet on when the new figures will be available to the public.
