Get an early look at merchandise from Hasbro, LEGO, and Funko!
We have exciting news from StarWars.com. To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace, an exclusive set of action figures will pay homage to the iconic red card-backs from the original toy line that hit shelves two decades ago in support of Episode I. These are just some of the exclusive toys and bobbleheads that you can get your hands on at Star Wars Celebration next month.
Today, via StarWars.com you can enjoy your first look at what the top toymakers are bringing to the Windy City. Hasbro will celebrate the duel between Darth Maul and a young Obi-Wan Kenobi with a pair of 6-inch Black Series figures on special Episode I card backs; both releases utilize the innovative Photo Real paint application technique.
LEGO has crafted a special brick bust in the visage of the mask of Darth Vader, with limited availability at Target.
And Funko has given a special chrome blue treatment to six of its character sculpts in the POP! line.
The bobblehead range is also releasing new Funko POP! figures of Watto and Darth Maul.
Time to start saving those credits folks. These exclusives are going to sell like hotcakes. Get in line early to get yours while stocks last.
Star Wars Celebration Chicago will take place April 11-15 at McCormick Place. We’ll see you there.
