Fans of all kinds are currently in the middle of San Diego Comic Con. While the SDCC has been filled with great movie and TV news so far, there have also been some big announcements in the world of toys. One of the biggest examples of this has been with Hasbro announcing a lot of fun things in their various star wars lines. This includes a new Cal Kestis Vintage Collection figure based on his next in-game appearance Jedi: Survivor.
Cal’s look is based on the trailer for Survivor which was revealed to star wars Celebration earlier this year and will be a sequel to the wildly popular Jedi: Fallen Order. The figure, like the entire Vintage collection, stands 3.75 inches tall with various points of articulation. Cal comes with his lightsaber, a blaster and his adorable droid BD-1. It’s also important to note that this new game takes place five years after Fallen orderCal is rocking a more mature look and five o’clock ombre.
When Jedi: Fallen Order released in late 2019, fans considered it another EA star wars game that would disappoint them. However, to everyone’s surprise, it was one of the best games to be released that year. Gameplay took what worked with popular franchises like dark souls and applied it to the vast star wars Universe while using this more thoughtful gameplay loop to explore one of the darkest periods in the series’ history. As Cal, you’ve felt the weight of Order 66 firsthand, and every combat encounter felt like a weight test because of it. The boss battles were especially entertaining with the various Inquisitor encounters that really tested your skills as a player. It also helped that the environments/planets explored in the game were well detailed and fun, Cal was an interesting character with a great performance of Cameron Monaghanand the story was well put together.
While we wait Jedi: Survivor‘s releasing in 2023, this new Cal figure is a great addition for any star wars collector and a sign of more challenging fun times to come. The Hasbro star wars Vintage Collection was a wonderfully affordable line that took fans back to when Kenner ruled the toy industry. Cal isn’t up for preorder yet, but keep your eyes peeled because it will be up for preorder on Saturday, July 23 at 5 p.m. ET. While you wait for that Jedi to arrive, you can see the rest of Hasbro’s vintage collection on their website and watch the trailer for jedi survivor here:
