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:
Amazon has listed the single carded Force Link Emperor Palpatine 3 3/4" figure on their website. Even though this figure was available in a Target exclusive 3-pack in the U.S., and it was sold internationally single carded, it looks as if Amazon picked it up as an exclusive for the United States. Have a look at the listing, it will be sold and shipped by Amazon itself.
Our friends at Fantha Tracks have learned that Hasbro's version of Han Solo's M-68 landspeeder is a copy of an art department concept design by Neil Ellis and not a copy of the actual model used in Solo: A Star Wars Story! Neil Ellis is a concept model maker and costume FX prop maker working for Lucasfilm. You can follow him on his Instagram account and make sure to check out the entire story at Fantha Tracks!
X-Wing Fighter pilot C'ai Threnalli, who could be seen in Star Wars: The Last Jedi sitting next to Poe Dameron, was supposed to be released in the final wave of The Last Jedi action figures. Unfortunately the entire wave was cancelled in the United States and for a long time it looked as if the figure would never be released here. Luckily Entertainment Earth managed to secure the exclusive rights to sell the figure in the United States and just a few weeks ago it finally shipped out. If you'd like to learn more about the figure take a look at our usual database entry. If you want to get the figure, Entertainement Earth has it still in stock.
