While San Diego Comic Con has come and gone, we are still grasping the amazing displays of toys, comics, exclusives, and news we got throughout the weekend of what is to come. With Star Wars Celebration Europe being the previous weekend, we were not sure what to expect at SDCC. We were hoping to see some Rogue one coverage, new figures from Hasbro, and an awesome set up in the Lucasfilm Pavilion and we were not disappointed.
We are huge Star Wars fans so we knew we would have to visit the Lucasfilm Pavilion. We were treated to some amazing costumes from Rogue One.
Inside Lucasfilm Pavilion, there was the Rogue One costume setup, Her Universe, Jakks Toys, Santa Cruz, Hallmark, Del Rey, Topps Star Wars Card Trader, and more. We have become big Star Wars Card Trader fans, so we had to pay a daily visit where Topps treated us very nicely in giving us access to the exclusive SDCC pack and daily free credits.
Our next stop would be the Hasbro booth. Here we would find the Beachtrooper that will be in Rogue One. I am very excited because we are being given the old with some familiar Original Trilogy characters along with the new. Who does not like to see a new trooper or two?
Hasbro did unveil throughout the weekend a few new figures and a surprise to release a Rogue One sneak peak figure of Jyn Erso.
Along with the release of the Jyn Erso Black Series SDCC exclusive, Hasbro shared a few new Black Series figures coming very soon.
Hasbro did also have many 3 3/4" figures on display, but we wanted to focus mainly on the Black Series line. They definitely got our attention though in a set or diorama that we could not pass sharing, especially since it was for Rogue One. Hasbro always creates amazing displays of their Star Wars lines and Transformers and Marvel Legends. For Star Wars, the Hasbro crew came through in a beautiful Rogue One display.
This set was so impressive from Hasbro and it brings me wanting more for Rogue One and for December to be here already. Good news for the Star Wars fans! Force Friday is returning September 30th! Are you ready? We will definitely be hanging out and buying our Rogue One merchandise on Force Friday.
We will be sharing our other coverage for Star Wars from Gentle Giant, Sideshow Collectibles, Hot Toys, and other San Diego Comic Con 2016 coverage.
