There’s no shortage of excitement for Star Wars Forces of Destiny since it was announced earlier this month, the animated series of shorts featuring that far far away galaxy’s all star line-up of females characters: Rey, Ahsoka Tano, Jyn Erso, Princess Leia, Sabine Wren. Yesterday in NYC at the TTPM Spring Showcase we had the opportunity to check out Hasbro’s upcoming tie-in line of adventure figures.
The 11″ collectibles are a mix of traditional action figures and dolls. On display at the were Princess Leia (in her Empire Strikes Back Hoth outfit), Jyn Erso (Rogue One), Sabine Wren (Rebels), and two versions of Rey (from The Force Awakes). R2-D2 was represented in addition to an extendable role play version of Rey’s staff.
Hasbro is set to launch a line of Star Wars Forces of Destiny toys, including new “Adventure Figures” — a fusion of traditional dolls and action figures. The toys are 11-inch in scale, and feature multiple points of articulation, as well as dynamic action, including Rey swinging her lightsaber. Villains such as Kylo Ren are also on the way. Get a sneak peek at Jyn Erso, R2-D2 Leia, Rey, BB-8, Sabine Wren, and Chewbacca below.
In addition to Adventure Figures, Hasbro will also release Star Wars Forces of Destiny role play items and accessories, from Rey’s Extendable Staff to a new, electronic Jedi Power Lightsaber toy, which are part of the Star WarsBladebuilders system. Added John Frascotti, president of Hasbro: “As the Star Wars fan base has broadened over the last 40 years, we have continued to add new and exciting play experiences to the Star Wars brand, to engage fans across generations. We’ve worked closely with Disney to bring the storytelling from Star Wars Forces of Destiny to life through this innovative toy line to help connect with new audiences as well as appeal to existing fans.”
More products based on the series, including books, apparel, bedding, and more, are also coming. The covers for books Star Wars Forces of Destiny – Daring Adventures Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 are revealed in the gallery below, both featuring three stories starring Star Wars heroes from across the saga.
