Star Wars Exclusive Toys and Saga Legends/Mission Series Previews

The Star Wars Rebels animated series recently aired its fourth episode on Disney XD, “Breaking Ranks,” and some fans pointed out via Twitter that certain characters should be produced as action figures in the near future, including Zare Leonis and Chopper’s Imperial disguise. But, where are the Rebels action figures?

On the shelves you’ll find the Jakks 20″ and 31″ figures, a few plush toys, and the Star Wars Rebels Command Battle figures, but not much else. I recently picked up Hasbro’s Star Wars Rebels Jedi Reveal Pack with Ezra, Kanan, and Obi-Wan Kenobi from Toys ‘R’ Us, but other figures haven’t appeared yet at my local store. There have been exceptions. For example, Yakface recently reported that Hasbro’s Star Wars Rebels/Saga Legends and Mission Series figures arrived from Entertainment Earth and other reported seeing some on the shelves in California. Visit Yakface’s toyguide preview for carded images. (Yakface also has a preview images for Wave 5 figures, which includes Sabine Wren’s figure.)

As for when more figures will become available, Jedi Temple Archives wrote January 30, 2015? The rumor states that some cases of figures went out early, but Hasbro appears to be pushing the general release of Rebels figures to early 2015.

Despite the rumor, there are exclusives that may catch your attention in the meantime.

Here’s hoping we see more figures and other merchandise on the shelves before Christmas.  Stay tuned for more toy updates as they become available.

Greetings Bothans! Johnamarie Macias is here bringing you a post about some of her adventures at the 2014 New York Comic Con! Focusing on the Star Wars merchandise there, she also includes a lot of great pictures of her finds! You guys are probably familiar with Johnamarie from her work at Making Star Wars, or the podcast Now This Is Podcasting!, but I want to encourage you to check out her site The Wookiee Gunner! With that, I’ll let you all start drooling over the merchandise! ~ Bethany Blanton

The red-carpeted show floor at New York Comic Con was a maze of endless awe and wonder, filled with comic book long boxes, displays of the latest and upcoming books, walls of graphic t-shirts, and various other booths of merchandise. From Avengers to zombies, this year’s exhibitors brought an exceptional array of new toys, vintage items, and custom-made pieces that would make your wallets and purses cringe. As a Star Wars fan, the mighty need to come away with something awesome nearly overpowered me several times. Though I left the con empty-handed, I discovered and photographed wonderful and unique Star Wars items as well as some familiar products.
