Hasbro’s new Forces of Destiny line launched just before Force Friday II and includes a range of Adventure Figures based on new animated shorts from Lucasfilm. The shorts, and the figure line, focus on the female leads of Star Wars, including Princess Leia, Rey, Padme, and Jyn as well as characters that originated in the animated shows with Ahsoka and Sabine.
Hasbro’s display at HASCON featured the figures that have already been released along with upcoming figures such as Luke Skywalker and Chewbacca. There was a Forces of Destiny panel on Saturday afternoon of the convention but we were unable to attend. However, it was announced that Princess Leia, with R2-D2, from Star Wars: A New Hope and Rey and Kylo Ren 2-packs are on the way.
Both sets were added to the display case after the panel and look really well done. We were also pleased to see Ahsoka in person and she looks fantastic.
