Become one with the force with Hasbro’s latest additions to “The black series” and “The vintage collection“model lines, including a replica of Rey Skywalker’s iconic lightsaber from”Star wars: The Rise of Skywalker. ”
The new products were unveiled during Hasbro’s “Star Wars Fan First” livestream and will include many fan favorites such as The Mandalorian and Grogu (aka Baby Yoda), Emperor Palpatine, the Stormtroopers, and Lando Calrissian.
All toys and models revealed by the toy maker will be available for purchase from spring 2022, but no official date has yet been revealed.

According to the toy maker, this Force FX lightsaber is the most realistic to date and will feature a real metal hilt, twist function to ignite, combat and blaster effects as well as molten blade tip effects.
The yellow blade, made famous by Rey in the movie, is removable, and the lightsaber comes with a stand for display. This gives anyone with the lightsaber – which is suitable for ages 14 or older – the ability to use the model as a toy or light up any room as a centerpiece.
Available at most major retailers, the approximate retail price will be $ 264.99. Unfortunately, this model is not powered by kyber crystals, so the three 1.5V AA batteries required to light the lightsaber will be sold separately.
Hasbro also unveiled an epic bundle of upcoming galactic action figures in the toy company’s âBlack Seriesâ lineup.
Eight new models will be added to the lineup and will include 6 inch (15 centimeter) models of The Mandalorian and Grogu (aka Baby Yoda), Leia Organa and many characters from the TV series “The Mandalorian”.
While the Mandalorian and Grogu figure will retail for around $ 36.99, all other figures in this listing will cost the same lower price of around $ 26.49 and are all suitable for ages 4 and up.
The latest group of Hasbro figures are releasing new additions to their “Vintage Collection” model line.
Some of the models include characters from the original trilogy like Emperor Palpatine, Lando Calrissian, Stormtroopers, and a Bib Fortuna figure. Hasbro’s ad also includes a retro-inspired Stormtrooper prototype – which has a multi-colored bulletproof vest as opposed to the traditional white and black.
These figures are considerably smaller than their “Black Series” counterparts – measuring 3.75 inches (9.5 cm). Figures for the “Vintage Collection” also vary in price, ranging from $ 13.99 to $ 41.99, although most items fall on the lower end of the scale.
The premium detailing and design of these models is what helps them stand out – and by combining that with moving parts, these figures can be great fun on their own or really cool as part of a set.
