Hasbro celebrated Fan First Monday today by showing off some new Star Wars figures. These are all from the hugely popular Star Wars: The Vintage Collection series and it included three new figures and a special playset. The first reveal is from Rogue One as this character is one with the force and the force is with him, Chirrut Imwe. This is the character's debut in the Vintage Collection series and has been highly demanded by fans. The figure is using photo-real technology to try and capture a movie-accurate portrayal of Chirrut. He will feature fabric elements and will come with his staff and bow gun. Up next is Princess Leia but this time she is wearing her Bespin Escape outfit from The Empire Strikes Back. This is a first for Leia and while the figure is not fully made yet, Hasbro did render up some images of her. He will be nicely sculpted showing the pattern on her outfit and she will come with a blaster. Finally, fans will be able to add some new figures to their growing Star Wars The Vintage Collection area. Chirrut Imwa will be priced at $12.99 and is set for a Fall 2020 release. Pre-order will go live tomorrow at 11 am on HasbroPulse. Bespin Escape Princess Leia Will is set to come out in Spring 2021 and she is also priced at $12.99.
The idea of a Star Wars Vintage Collection Bespin Escape Princess Leia arrived with the next reveal. That's right, we are talking about the Empire Strikes Back Carbon Freezing Chamber Playset. The playset will feature original Kenner branding and features high amounts of detail from the film. This premium set is meant for the 3.75" figures and is bundled with a new Stormtrooper figure and Carbonite Han Solo. This set will combine with another set to create the full Carbonite Chamber scene. Collectors will have to get the set to get their hands on the new Empire Strikes Back Stormtrooper. He will be featuring a Carbonite card back and a must for any fan of this set. The Star Wars: The Vintage Collection Carbon-Freezing Chamber is priced at $49.99, which is a great price for a playset and figure. It is expected to release in Fall 2020 and pre-orders will go live tomorrow at 11 am at HasbroPulse.com.
