Hasbro has officially unveiled its highly anticipated new toy line for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, just in time for Force Friday II. And we have all the details on the goods for you below.
But these are not just any old toys. In addition to classic expressions of figures and role play, Hasbro says its “wide-ranging line of toys will also include innovative and new products.” This includes new “FORCE LINK” technology that mixes wearable tech with the beloved characters and vehicles from the Star Wars universe to deliver a “play experience that brings Star Wars stories to life like never before.”
One of the most highly-anticipated of the new action figures (and characters in the forthcoming film) is the Stormtrooper Executioner. The 6-inch figurine is part of the Star Wars: The Black Series range (ages 4 years & up/approx. suggested retail price: $19.99) and comes with a nifty looking axe accessory. It's available exclusively at Target.
Another impressive sight is the Star Wars Galactic Heroes BB-8 Adventure Base (ages 3-7 years/approx. retail price: $79.99) which, according to the description, will let any young Jedi “choose from two modes of play: close the playset for the droid mode or open it to reveal a world on adventure.” The toy includes exciting features such as projectile launchers, multiple catwalks, a vehicle landing pad, and a jail cell.
If that wasn’t exciting enough, the Star Wars Force Link BB-8 2-in-1 Mega Playset (ages 4 years & up/approx. retail Price: $179.99) lets you activate incredible sounds and phrases via the FORCE LINK technology. The official description says that on the outside, “this playset resembles the iconic astromech droid BB-8.” But once opened the “BB-8 exterior to uncover a multi-level playset is where the real fun begins.”
There’s also a plethora of lightsabers, vehicles, and play masks to choose from, not to mention Star Wars editions of Yahtzee Duels (ages 8 years & up/ players: 2/approx. Retail Price: $19.99) Head Hints (ages 7 years & up/ players: 3-4/approx. retail price: $9.99) and Battleship (ages 7 years & up/ players: 2/approx. retail price: $19.99/).
Hasbro’s Star Wars toy line will be available at most major retailers including Target, Toys’R’Us, Walmart, and at HasbroToyShop.com. Star Wars: The Last Jedi opens wide Dec. 15.
