After months of speculation and leaks and blurry photos and cell phone pictures, we finally have our first official look at the figures and toys from The Last Jedi that will be available tonight for Force Friday and beyond. Let's not waste any time and dig right in.
In the 3 3/4 inch variety we get a healthy mix of new and old characters in five points of articulation. New versions of Luke Skywalker, Rey, Kylo Ren, and the new Praetorian Guard lead the way, while we also get repack of Poe Dameron, C-3PO, Boba Fett, Han Solo, and the First Order Stormtrooper.
The Walmart exclusive Black Series super-articulated 3 3/4 inch line continues with Rose, Praetorian Guard with blade, Luke, and the Stormtrooper Executioner.
Three new NERF blasters will join your arsenal.
Five new 3 3/4 inch vehicles will also be available, each also comes with a packed-in figure. I have seen the rathtar set and Vader w/Probe Droid and they both look fantastic.
LEGO releases its largest LEGO set ever, the Ultimate Collectors Series Millennium Falcon. This one clocks in at 33 inches long, 22 inches wide and 8 inches tall. It consists of 7,541 bricks and retails for $800.
Role-play items include a Poe Dameron Black Series helmet for $80 that follows the Kylo and Stormtrooper helmets released the last couple years, a Head Hats game, and the ever popular Blade Builders so you can build your own crazy-looking lightsaber. We also get a plush electronic Porg that people will go gaga over.
The main event for most collectors will be the Black Series six-inch line. Wave 1 will hit stores tonight, featuring new figures for Rey, Kylo, Luke, Grand Admiral Thrawn, Hera Syndulla from Rebels, and repacks of Stormtroopers and the excellent new Darth Vader.
Toys R Us gets a new six-inch two pack featuring Admiral Ackbar and a First Order Officer.
Amazon gets an exclusive First Order Stormtrooper deluxe pack with a ton of accessories.
Your collection gets more dynamic with the new Black Series Centerpiece line, featuring dioramas for you figures to pose on.
Two new deluxe vehicles join the six-inch line: Luke and Rey's respective landspeeders.
And finally, a figure playset for your 3 3/4 inch figures. It comes with Snoke and a Praetorian Guard and is housed inside a BB-8. This one looks pretty cool, but will cost you at $200.
There is more that will be revealed on shelves I am sure, so all of you little and big Jedi will have plenty of searching to do.
Happy hunting and may the Force be with you!
