Here is the audio which we captured during Hasbro's media event on October 4, 2018 about Star Wars The Black Series 6" figures! Hasbro revealed the impressive General Grievous 6" and Tartakovsky Clone Wars Obi-Wan Kenobi action figures, along with three new entries into the Black Series archive line! Listen to Hasbro's Steve Evans and Patrick Schneider explain some of the figure details, availability, price points and the introduction of the Black Series XL line for Spring 2019!
Cnet.com introduced Hasbro's Star Wars: Resistance 3 3/4" action figure line yesterday, which was followed by an in-room presentation of the action figure line during a press only event during New York Comic Con 2018. The action figures on display included ten figures, six Star Wars figures which will be released single carded and four figures which will be released in two 2-packs. The single carded figures included Kazuda Xiono, Commander Pyre, Torra Doza, Synara San, Major Vonreg and a regular First Order Stormtrooper. The 2-packs will include Poe Dameron with BB-8 and Jarek Yeager with his droid.
The Star Wars: Resistance toy line was referred to by Hasbro as their "kiddie line" and that means less articulation (5POA). The figures are more colorful, brighter and the overall look is stylized to match the Star Wars: Resistance tv show, which is heavily influenced by anime. The toy line will come in its own packaging and will be available in Spring 2019. There were no vehicles announced, but the show is based around races, so we should see some vehicles in this toy line in the future.
You can listen to the audio of the announcement during the press event below.
Star Wars Resistance premieres this Sunday at 10 p.m. ET/PT on the Disney Channel. We'll update this article with press photos and photos from the event in the near future, please stay tuned.
