During the Hasbro San Diego Comic Con panel today, it was revealed that two new playsets for 3.75" figures will be released in the Fall of 2018. Both playsets will have graphics on the front and back so that it can be rotated 360 degrees. Hasbro mentioned that each playset will cost below $50. The Kessel Mine playset will be sold exclusively at Walmart stores and it will include a Han Solo action figure (the figure looks to be the same as the one which is packed-in with the Kessel Run Millennium Falcon) Here is a look at the cardboard backdrops and the graphics on it, take a look below.

After going through the painful 1+ hour Force Link 2.0 app update and several connection issues between the gauntlet and the app on an iPhone 7 Plus (with a great WiFi connection), we finally got the app to work. We've updated every Star Wars figure in the Solo: A Star Wars Story / Force Link 2.0 toy line with voice samples. Here is what we have learned and experienced:
So far we don't see the magic between Force Link 1.0 and 2.0 except that you can update it through Bluetooth. The app is still not ready for prime time yet. When was the last time you've spent $30+ for an item you thought you could use right away, then had to wait about two weeks, then installed the app on your phone (which took one hour) and then still didn't work 100%? The figures still have five or six different lines (in some cases apparently less), so the functionality is the same when compared to Force Link 1.0 and we didn't notice any changes in voice quality or an increase in phrases per figure. Force Link 2.0 has a lot of potential and we love how cool it is when it works well (Lando!), but we have to scratch our head when we have a Luke Skywalker in Hoth Outfit who only speaks lines from different scenes in the movie. Let's keep our fingers crossed and hope for a quick and frustration free update to the app in the coming days and a more thoughtful approach as to what lines the figures should speak (and having original voices from the movies should really be a given).
Share your experience below, we'd love to hear about it!
You can now find the Hasbro Force Link 2.0 Chewbacca figure variation in the database. The first release of Chewbacca had no details on the back of the bandolier and a slightly but noticeably different paint application. You can spot the difference through the packaging, just look at the figure from the side and see if you can make out the sculpted details or not. Have a look at the pictures below and check out the full database entry here:
Hasbro has finally released an update for their Force Link 2.0 app via the iTunes app store. Now all your Force Link 2.0 enabled Star Wars figures can talk! Unfortunately the udpate takes quite a well to download and finish (we tested this with an iPhone 7 Plus and a WifFi connection and it took over 30 minutes to complete). We'll be updating the database with all the voice samples over the coming days, please stay tuned.

Hasbro has left many fans who purchased the Force Link 2.0 Starter Set, which includes the Force Link 2.0 arm wrist band, disappointed because it only works properly in combination with an app. This app however is not available for download in Apple's app store.
Hasbro has updated their app page to let Force Link 2.0 users who have iPhones know that the app will finally be available on or before May 1st, 2018. Android users can already use it, but again only with limited functionality.
From Hasbro's website: "We’re working hard to fix this so that you have the best experience possible. Thanks for your patience."
