We've finished another toy line! This makes three this week! First we added the last figure to the Black Series 3.75" series to the database (Han Solo with Cinema box, Amazon Italy), then we finished the Rogue One Collection with the international version of Finn and the Desert Landspeeder and now we've finished the SOLO: A Star Wars Story toy line with the Red Squadron A-Wing pilot!
Technically the Resistance A-Wing Fighter (Red Squadron) could be considered part of the Last Jedi toy line, but because it came out late and with updated Force Link 2.0 technology implemented we added it to the SOLO action figure line. To learn more about this set have a look here: Resistance A-Wing Fighter With Pilot!
Thanks to J.B. reader Jack Stuk for letting us know that the Last Jedi A-Wing Fighter with Tallie and the Canto Bight Police Speeder are now available through the 5 Below website at $5 each! That is an amazing deal for some great vehicles. Tap on the image below to go to the 5Below website or look at our reviews of the figures here:

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.

We will post more information about the Porgs as it becomes available, please stay tuned.

When asked about the new up-coming DJ figure from The Last Jedi and its incredible likeness to Benicio DelToro, Steve Bono replied: "This process is inkjet printing where the color is sprayed onto the face, much like you would print a picture from a copier. They’re able to capture a lot more subtlety, a lot more color, and it’s not just one color at a time."

We've finally received confirmation that Walmart will have another set of super articulated 3.75" figures.
"Hasbro has a Black Series line that features 3.75-inches and for Force Friday will be unveiling an assortment pack that includes the Elite Praetorian Guard (with blade!), Resistance Tech Rose, Luke Skywalker and the Stormtrooper Executioner."
There is a rumor floating around in the collecting community which indicates that Hasbro might bring back an updated version of the Episode I CommTech chip for The Last Jedi toy line. The rumor, which appeared to have originated on Rebelscum.com, indicates that each Star Wars figure in The Last Jedi basic assortment will include a Force Link Bracelet which enables the figures to talk to each other.
If this rumor turns out to be true, it'll be interesting to see how much the technology has improved since 1999. We expect more information about this to come out during San Diego Comic Con 2017, which is held in July. The Last Jedi action figures go officially on sale on September 1, 2017.
Here are some photos which we took during The Last Jedi Panel at Star Wars Celebration Orlando in 2017. Guests included Josh Gad, Kathleen Kennedy, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Mark Hamill, Rian Johnson and Kelly Marie Tran.
