Roundup: TFA Toys, Sideshow Collectibles Lineup, Topps Cards, and More!

The new year is finally upon us! Star Wars Celebration Anaheim, season two of Star Wars Rebels, and the highly anticipated sequel, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, are on the horizon. Before those events come to pass, there have been several updates and news reports from the Star Wars toy collecting community. To bring you up to speed with the latest information, this roundup highlights the most relevant and popular items to keep your eyes on.

No Toys Based on The Force Awakens at Toy Fair 2015

Hasbro announced on January 5 that no toys based on Star War: The Force Awakens will be shown at Toy Fair 2015 in New York City, a trade-only event for toy and youth entertainment professionals scheduled for February 14-17.

“Obviously, we know that there’s a huge amount of anticipation for Star Wars toys this year, and we wanted to be forthcoming about this as we know it might make a difference for some of you in regards to travel plans.”

The Force Awakens Hasbro Product List

z Rebelscum posted a Hasbro product list for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, which includes 3.75 figures, The Black Series, toy lightsabers, masks, and other items.

Visit Rebelscum to read the entire list of products.

Hasbro Digital Release Box Sets

hasbro_digital_release_box_setsIt appears Hasbro plans to release products in conjunction with the digital releases of the Star Wars films sometime around May the Fourth, though the release date could also be sooner than that, according to Jedi News.

The figures appear to be from the Saga Legends line. Also, I find the lack of female action figures disturbing. Both trilogies have prominent female characters, and once again, they’ve been neglected. The Saga Legends action figure of Princess Leia as Boushh would have fit in quite nicely.
