Rebels Princess LeiaHasbro has just wrapped up their Star Wars presentation at Toy Fair and have shown off several new items for the Galactic Heroes and 6″ Black Series lines as well as new Rebels figures in the 5 points of articulation (POA)  3.75″ line.

Also coming will be the new Sabine Wren figure which was shown off late last year.  New announcements in the 6″ line include an AT-AT Driver, which we’re excited about, along with a Snowtrooper.

From sets based on Star Wars: The Force Awakens, to those inspired by a new original animated series, LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures to sets based on the upcoming Star Wars: Rogue One filmthe 2016 LEGO Star Wars collection is one of the largest and most diverse since its 1999 introduction.

“For more than 16 years, children and kids at heart have recreated the Star Wars story through LEGO play, and this year we will give them even more stories and characters to explore,” said Jill Wilfert, vice president of licensing and entertainment for the LEGO Group. “Our collaboration with Disney and Lucasfilm enables us to bring fun and creative LEGO twists to the Star Wars universe, which is why we’re so thrilled to introduce an original LEGO Star Wars television series this year. New original characters and stories, plus two inspired building sets, will bring fans of all ages even more reasons to build and explore with LEGO Star Wars.”

The LEGO Group is celebrating the Saga in more ways than ever before, showcasing how building with LEGO bricks inspires open-ended creativity and sparks imagination. New building sets offer the chance to create the stories fans know and love while also empowering them to create their own adventures. For the second year running, a line of buildable LEGO figures brings new heroes and villains to life in a unique role-play experience.

LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures
To continue inspiring imagination and storytelling, LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures, an original animated series, will debut later this year. The show’s quirky heroes, the Freemakers, are a family of scavengers who build and sell starships from the scoured debris of space battles strewn throughout the galaxy. When the youngest Freemaker discovers a natural connection to the Force through an ancient artifact, his world turns upside down as he and his family find themselves in an epic struggle against the Empire to restore peace and freedom to the galaxy. Throughout their adventures, the Freemakers explore new worlds, meet new (and familiar) characters, and learn the true value of what it means to be a family. The series combines the excitement, action and adventure of a galaxy far, far away with a dose of brick-building humor for which LEGO content is best known. Two building sets based on the series – Eclipse Fighter™($29.99) and StarScavenger™ ($49.99) – launch this summer.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens

Assortment prices range from $9.99-$79.99.

Star Wars Saga   
In March, builders can expect seven new building sets based on the original Star Wars Saga. Characters from the Dark Side and Light Side ban together in the Rebel Alliance Battle Pack and Galactic Empire™ Battle Pack, and classic scenes get the brick treatment in the Carbon-Freezing Chamber, Hoth™ Attack and Droid™ Escape Pod sets. Collection prices range from $24.99-$29.99.

Star Wars: Rebels
Five new LEGO construction sets inspired by the Disney XD animated series, Star Wars Rebels, launch in March, and three more follow in June. For a quick build loaded with action and a unique LEGO minifigure, fans can choose from The Ghost™TIE Advanced Prototype™Wookiee™ Gunship or AT-DP™ building sets, or they can build Kanan’s Speeder Bike construction toy, complete with three minifigures. Set prices range from $9.99 – $119.99.

Buildable Figures 
The debut of Star Wars buildable figures last year continues with six new buildable figures, available now, based on the characters Rey, First Order Stormtrooper, Poe Dameron, Finn, Kylo Ren and Captain Phasma.  Additional buildable figures will be unveiled throughout the year. Figures range from $19.99-$29.99.

LEGO Assault on Hoth™ Base will Challenge Even the Most Skilled Fan Builders
Experienced builders can recreate the Rebel Force’s Echo Base from Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back in an unbelievably detailed recreation of one of the most iconic scenes in the original Star Wars trilogy. The 2,144-piece building set inspires fans to build their own scouting missions with the Snowspeeder, armed with twin spring-loaded shooters, and get back to base on the speeder bike to help Luke, Han and the other Rebel heroes. The modular design enables fans to customize their Rebel base configuration, including a Wampa cave and Wampa figure.  The set features LEGO minifigure versions of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Toryn Farr, Wes Janson, Wedge Antilles, K-3PO, and more. Available May 1 for $249.99.

BoShek

Having also attended the panel, “Secrets of the Mos Eisley Cantina,” I’m pretty happy with Bill Jensen’s new article, “Finding BoShek” which was posted earlier this week.  Mr. Jensen was able to track down the actor who played BoShek; Frances, Alfred, Basil Tomlin.

After 39 years and one Hasbro action figure, it’s fun to know that although mysteries still exist about our favorite film franchise, there are still people working to document things like this.

Herocross, one of several companies over the last year to obtain a license for Star Wars collectibles is now being imported into the US by Sideshow Collectibles.  The Hybrid Metal Figuration line features die-cast figures approximately 5″ tall with multiple points of articulation, interchangeable hands and accessories, and stands.

BigBadToyStore.com has been offering them for sale since they were first introduced but with Sideshow in the mix now it looks like we’ll see a little competition on the price.  The first four releases in the series include Darth Vader, Boba Fett, a Sandtrooper, and a 2-pack featuring R2-D2 and C-3PO.  Prices run from $80 to $129 (for the 2-pack) which is about $10 less, on average, than BBTS.  However, BBTS did offer a Darth Vader exclusive which included a light-up base.

All of the offerings on Sideshow’s website are listed as pre-orders shipping between April and May 2016.  BBTS currently have Boba Fett and the Sandtrooper in stock.
