October 22, 2021, was the first day of Hasbro Pulse Con. Unable to attend Toy Fair or SDCC this year, the toy company set out to take their presentations into the virtual setting.
Throughout the year, Hasbro has been doing weekly "Fan First" live streams to reveal new products, but Pulse Con is meant to serve as a substitute for the large-scale cons and events where they usually unveil their latest offerings. However, recently, the Star Wars-focused Fan First live streams were not as frequent as usual.
This is because Hasbro was saving up all their new reveals for today's online Pulse Con presentation. And boy, what a presentation it was. Several new figures were shown off, as can be seen below!
Hasbro Has Their Finger on the Pulse of Star Wars Fans
During the first day of Hasbro Pulse Con, Hasbro revealed looks at eight new figurines paying tribute to the Star Wars universe.
First off, there's Obi-Wan Kenobi as he appeared in Star Wars: Attack of the Clones, gumshoeing around Coruscant and getting his butt handed to him by bounty hunter Jango Fett on Kamino. He stands at about 3.75 inches and comes packed with his lightsaber and a commlink. Pre-order here.
Next up is fan-favorite Ahsoka Tano from the ever-popular Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated series. Fans and collectors might notice that her animated look has been translated into something a little more realistic for her action figure representation. Ahsoka comes backed with dual lightsabers. Pre-order here.
"This party's over." No Mace, this party's just getting started, because Jedi Master Mace Windu has been converted to action figure form with this Vintage Collection figure from Attack of the Clones that features a fabric robe and his signature purple-bladed lightsaber. Pre-order here.
Arachnophobes beware! This deluxe Vintage Collection pack includes Din Djarin, Grogu, and a small assortment of 3.75-inch scale spiders from The Mandalorian Season 2, Chapter 10, which finds Djarin's ship stranded on an infested ice planet after running into some difficulties with the New Republic. This set is a Target exclusive.
Lastly in the new Vintage Collection offerings, it's little Anakin Skywalker as he appeared in the closing minutes of The Phantom Menace. He comes with a training helmet, a training remote, and a training lightsaber. Y'know, for training. Pre-order here.
Moving onto the Black Series, there's the Marshall of Mos Pelgo himself, Cobb Vanth. This deluxe release features a likeness to actor Timothy Olyphant that utilizes Hasbro's proprietary PhotoReal face printing technology. He also comes packed with the Mandalorian armor that he stole- er... borrowed from Boba Fett. Pre-order here.
Hailing all the way from Space Boston, it's comedian Bill Burr's Migs Mayfeld in his Imperial tank driver disguise. Pose him sharpshooting the enemy or getting surprisingly candid about the state of the galaxy five years post-Return of the Jedi. Mayfeld arrives with a helmet and a blaster pistol.
And finally, speaking of Boba Fett, here is the fearsome and legendary Star Wars bounty hunter as he appears in The Mandalorian Season 2 when he tracks Din Djarin to the planet Tython in order to reclaim his father's armor. Featuring cloth robes, a blaster rifle, a gaffi stick, and an authentic likeness to Temeura Morrison.
Something for Every Star Wars Collector
Hasbro has indicated that more Star Wars figures are coming soon. Already promised, but still yet-to-be-seen figures include Echo and Omega from The Bad Batch as well as Werner Herzog's villainous Client from The Mandalorian Season 1.
Hasbro Pulse Con rolls on into Saturday the 23rd, but the Star Wars releases slotted for the show have already been debuted. Have no fear though, another Star Wars Fan First live stream is likely just around the corner.
