Hasbro’s Star Wars: Force Friday Offerings Revealed

The release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi may be months away, but Hasbro will bring a little piece of that far, far away galaxy to a store near you on Friday. Hasbro’s new Force Friday line of Star Wars toys blends sagas new and old, giving new life to scenes from the original trilogy and offering hints at what’s to come in this December’s Episode VIII.

If you’re searching for new clues about The Last Jedi, look no further, as these Force Friday sets could very well represent scenes from the upcoming film. For instance, the toys boast several new vehicles from the movie, like the Canto Bight Police Speeder, Tie Silencer, Resistance Ski Speeder and an updated version of the Resistance A-Wing Fighter.

Some Last Jedi sets simply spotlight characters new and old. Newcomer Rose Tico and her Resistance pilot sister Paige both have action figures in this line, while old Luke gets two of his own. Rey is featured heavily in this line, with multiple action figures as well as a mega playset. Like Rey, Kylo Ren has several action figures, including a set where he stands by a mysterious, coffin-like contraption. And who could miss the plushie Porg, a beloved resident of Ahch-To?

Hasbro’s Force Friday line also includes some throwbacks to The Force Awakens, like an action figure set of Rey with her speeder from her opening scene on Jakku, and other properties from the Star Wars universe. The Force Awakens scoundrel Bala-Tik and a deadly Rathtar feature in one set, while Star Wars Rebels’ Hera Syndulla and Thrawn gets their own action figures. Yet another set immortalizes Darth Vader’s final scene from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, where he nearly captures the Rebel with the Death Star plans.

The Star Wars old guard is represented as well, with multiple new figures of young Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader and more. In one set, Luke charges forward with his lightsaber during a battle on Hoth; another features Darth Vader and an imperial probe droid. C-3PO gets represented in one figure, and fans who wish to give Boba Fett a better sendoff can do so with an action figure two-pack that includes the Mandalorian bounty hunter and his bounty Han Solo.

Arriving December 15, director Rian Johnson’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi stars Mark Hamill as Luke Skywalker, Carrie Fisher as General Leia Organa, Adam Driver as Kylo Ren, Daisy Ridley as Rey, John Boyega as Finn, Oscar Isaac as Poe Dameron, Lupita Nyong’o as Maz Kanata, Domhnall Gleeson as General Armitage Hux, Anthony Daniels as C-3PO, Gwendoline Christie as Captain Phasma and Andy Serkis as Supreme Leader Snoke.
