Star Wars merchandise is flooding toy shelves in the lead-up to The Rise of Skywalker, and at this year's Lucca Comics & Games event, Hasbro unveiled even more Black Series and Vintage Collection figures from across the Skywalker Saga.
Among them are Jedi Masters Plo Koon and Kit Fisto of the Jedi High Council from the prequel trilogy and, unusually for Hasbro’s Black Series, the recognizable red Force FX lightsaber wielded by Asajj Ventress, who eventually turned her back on her master Count Dooku.
For those who grew up with figures on cards, there are some truly classic characters joining the Vintage Collection, including an Empire Strikes Back-era Luke Skywalker and perpetual scoundrel Han Solo, complete with a welding tool and safety glasses for stitching the Millennium Falcon back together. Completing the memorable last arc of The Empire Strikes Back comes a half-built C-3PO with a silver junkyard leg and the ever-charming Lando Calrissian, flowing cape and all, his elder self ready to take back the Falcon, finally, in The Rise of Skywalker.
While some of the more obscure figures haven’t quite landed with fans yet, we’ve seen the beautifully crafted Black Series Mandalorian hit shelves at Gamestop and other venues, pending his first appearance when Disney + and the titular series launch on Nov. 12. That series also includes the so-far-unrecognizable and soon-to-be-famous Cal Kestis, who headlines Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, which lands just a few days later on Nov. 15.
Directed and co-written by J.J. Abrams, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker stars Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Kelly Marie Tran, Joonas Suotamo, Billie Lourd, Keri Russell, Anthony Daniels, Mark Hamill, Billy Dee Williams and Carrie Fisher, with Naomi Ackie and Richard E. Grant. The film arrives Dec. 20.
