Not sure if you heard, but big doin’s in the Star Wars world this weekend. There was this little convention, Star Wars Celebration…then we got a new Star Wars Episode VIII trailer…and new toy news all weekend. Well now, we have some more info and some incredible images thanks to our friends at Hasbro to share with you!
Photos from yesterday’s panel at Star Wars Celebration Orlando celebrating HEROINES OF STAR WARS + FORCES OF DESTINY are amazing and just down below!
Moderated by Amy Ratcliffe (host of “Lattes with Leia” podcast), fans in attendance enjoyed a conversation about strong female characters central to the Star Wars universe and how they have inspired generations of fans; panelists included: Dave Filioni (executive producer Star Wars Rebels), Ashley Eckstein (“Ahsoka Tano”), Tiya Sircar (“Sabine Wren”) and surprise guest Daisy Ridley (“Rey”). The three actresses were surprised on stage with the reveal of their new Adventure Figures by Hasbro from the just-announced Star Wars Forces of Destiny. As part of the reveal, fans were treated to a sneak peek at the first animated Forces of Destiny short, which will launch on Disney YouTube in July 2017.
DC Comics Icons Deluxe Cyborg
Cyborg is another long awaited figure in the DC Icons line, that, like Wonder Woman, was address in the prior month release of the Rebirth Justice League 7-Pack. However, unlike Wonder Woman, who featured two totally different figures between the team pack and the single release, Cyborg, to my only moderately untrained eye is the exact same figure released in that box set with the notable difference being accessories, and there are many, many, many! Mind you, this is a deluxe figure, so his price tag will be a little higher. Is he worth the cost of admission?
