San Diego Comic-Con is finally here and there is no doubt that Star Wars will have a substantial impact on the world’s premier con. Friday is “Star Wars Day” and we’re all looking forward to the juicy details that will be coming from Hall H. In addition to that panel, possibly the other most highly anticipated presence is Hasbro. SDCC will be the place where we finally get to see official Star Wars: The Force Awakens toys.
JediDefender.com has a good gallary of Hasbro’s booth from Preview Night and you can see that Hasbro is teasing the release of three brand new 6″ Black Series figures on Friday. These could very well be TFA characters.
The one figure we know will be available as the SDCC exclusive is the first-ever TFA action figure: the 6″ Black Series First Order Stormtrooper. This will easily be the hottest exclusive of the year, and some were reporting that the Hasbro line was already significant as of early yesterday evening. Hasbro was kind enough to send us a preview of this fantastic exclusive and it is really incredible. Keep in mind that as we reported earlier, the exclusive here is the packaging. The actual figure will be widely available likely in the fall.
Check out the gallery below with some close-ups of the figure as well as a look inside the accompanying booklet (please note that some of the pages inside the booklet are made of a clear paper intended to provide a layered look to the images. This can look like blurriness in the pictures):
