A look at what went down at the Hasbro Preview Event for the Star Wars Toy Line. Most words, but sorry kids, probably the least pictures.
Star Wars – presented by Jeff Labovitz and Bill Raleigh
They are echoing excitement over Netflix picking up the Clone Wars Season 6. It will start March 6h and show the final 13 episodes. Hasbro will be celebrating with 2 named clones in their Black 3.75 line.
The Rebels line will be coming out in fall and there is a ton of exciting stuff!
