The 3.75" figures look reasonably good.  They're all 5 POA, which is disappointing.  But the likenesses are pretty good. 

The Falcon?  I kind of like the fact that it looks different.  It ties in with some of the dialogue from the OT, like when Han said "I've made some special modifications myself", or when Lando said in TESB "What have you done to my ship?".  I also suspect that at some point in the movie, some of those special modifications are going to start happening.  As for the toy itself?  The $99 price point is a lot easier to accept.  I think Hasbro has recognized some of the psychological/financial barriers that have kept people from buying $100+ and $200+ vehicles.

The 6" TBS figures look pretty good.  But I definitely get the reactions to the Imperial Range Trooper.  It definitely looks like a bit of a departure from previous troopers.  But I also see hints of equipment and gear from the prequels, ROGUE ONE and the OT.  I'm also curious to see these guys in action, because I think those boots might integrate with some kind of vehicle.

I'm digging the new Han Solo and Lando 6" figures. 

I don't like the new Stormtrooper design - it doesn't seem to fit in with prior incarnations of the Stormtrooper (I thought Rogue One did a great job with their new Stormtrooper designs). 

I don't really like the jacket on Qi'Ra, but otherwise her design is fine. 

I stopped collecting 3 3/4" figures so I don't really care about these new ones.

First look at Hasbro's new toys for Solo: A Star Wars Story

A new movie is racing toward us from a galaxy far, far away, which means fans will need to clear more shelf space. Here’s EW’s exclusive preview of Hasbro’s Solo: A Star Wars Story collection ahead of New York’s Toy Fair

There’s a new (old) version of a familiar starship emerging from this movie. The Kessel Run Millennium Falcon includes a young Han Solo action figure — along with clues about why the Falcon looks so sleek and different, just a few years before the events of the original Star Wars. (Retail price: $99)

Break-Away Panels

From Hasbro: "Press the button to pretend that the iconic starship kicks in to hyperdrive with lights and sounds. Press the button a second time for accelerated lights and sounds as well as activate the rumble pack vibrations! Push the button a third time to pretend that your ship picks up even more speed and watch the panels pop off before rumbling to the finish line."

Young Han

Here's the 3.75-inch young Han Solo figure included with the ship, sculpted to resemble actor Alden Ehrenreich. We don't yet have a full explanation of what's in that dual cannister he's carrying. Contraband of some sort, no doubt.

Hiding Spots

There's a captain's quarters in the back, along with a storage room, tucked below two other panels. But most interesting to fans is why the nose of the Falcon is narrower and tapered instead of the familiar forked design.

Ralph McQuarrie-inspired look

This "new car" version of the Falcon reflects its ownership (at this point in history) by Lando Calrissian, whose action figure hasn't been revealed yet. The Star Wars Show revealed that the look was inspired by the original trilogy's legendary concept artist Ralph McQuarrie.


Slight spoiler here: Are those cannons canon? Sometimes the toys include bonus blasters, but the nost of this toys appears to have weapons that swing out from the front. And the nose clearly pulls out into a separate, smaller ship. That's similar to The Ghost starship from the animated Star Wars: Rebels. But what happens to this section of the falcon in Solo?

Force Link 2.0

With The Last Jedi, Hasbro introduced this device, which generates sounds based on the individual character or vehicle. This Solo version includes another new young Han figure (see next slide) and can generate audio for the figure and the mini-ship that accompany the Falcon. (Retail: $29.99)

Han Solo

This is the Alden Ehrenreich-styled version of young Han Solo that comes with the Force Link 2.0 starter pack. The wristwatch-like speaker creates sounds not only for this toy, but for the other action figures as well.


Emilia Clarke's mystery woman Qi'ra is another new action figure. This version is the younger version of the character, during her speeder-racing days with Han on the industrial world of Corellia. (Retail for all individual Solo figures is $7.99.)

New Chewbacca

Chewbacca doesn't change much. He's hundreds of years old, and just middle aged for a Wookiee, so the whole Star Wars series plays out as only a small chapter of his life. In Solo, as with this Hasbro toy, he does have a fancier bandolier with an extra shoulder strap.


Kaytoo from Rogue One could technically make an appearance in Solo, given the intersecting chronology, but Hasbro says they're only re-releasing this figure because it now comes enabled with audio tech for the Force Link band.

Check out this clip posted at SWNN.  It's a scene between Ezra and Kanan, and might be a glimpse at the changing dynamic between the two Jedi.
