The Force Link 1.0 and 2.0 feature in Hasbro's 3.75" Star Wars action figure line received mixed reviews, especially with the 2.0 release in April 2018. We felt it was difficult to update, clunky to use and the smart phone app wouldn't work correctly when it was first released. In fact it took almost six months for Hasbro to release an update which enabled some of the figures and creatures' voice samples to work (e.g. Wampa). However, once the smart phone app and the Force Link bracelett were updated, there was quite a bit of fun to be had with the figures.
There were some figures released which didn't include original voice samples and featured other voice talents instead. We ignored those figures because it just doesn't get better than having the original voice samples implemented.
Holding a 3.75" Lando Calrissian action figure and having it say "I am too young and too good to retire." or having VAL scream at you "Here comes a world of hurt!" should bring a smile to anybody's face, so we thought let's pick our favorite voice samples from the past year and here is what we came up with!
It's a cool figure and picture you holding it and it screams at you "Here comes a world of hurt!" or "Show me what else you got!" :) Fun stuff, check it out:

Classic Obi-Wan Kenobi lines from the Original Trilogy implemented into a 3.75" figure? Yes please! Listen here:

K2-SO's sarcasm shines through in the action figure when you hear it say "There are a lot of explosions for two people blending in" :) Listen here:

Rio Durant was a fun character in SOLO: A Star Wars Story and Hasbro managed to get some of the original movie voice samples into the figure like "remember, it could always be worse - and usually is" LOL! Check it out:

L3 had some fun lines in SOLO: A Star Wars Story like "Don't just blindly follow a program, exercise a little free will!" or her screaming "Resist the opressor!". Come on, how is this not fun? Check it out:

Not only is this 3.75" version of Emperor Palpatine among the best ROTJ Palpatine figures released since the Power Of The Force 2 version in the 90's, it's also very creepy to listen to, check it out:

Luke Skywalker (Jedi Knight) is our favorite Star Wars character here at J.B. and the Force Link 2.0 figure here only has original voice samples from Star Wars: Return Of The Jedi, listen here:

Lando Calrissian in SOLO: A Star Wars Story has some of the funniest and coolest lines in all of the Star Wars movies. Lines such as "Everything you heard about me ... is true."
