Obi-Wan Wednesdays will deliver weekly toy and collectibles reveals, as well as a camtono of Obi-Wan inspired awesomeness beginning on May 25
Star Wars Day has been an absolute blast. Not only did Lucasfilm spoil us with a new poster and trailer for the upcoming Obi-Wan Kenobi series; but the official website has revealed an all-new merchandise program to compliment the show. Similiar in style to the “Mando Mondays” and “Bring Home The Bounty” initiatives, “Obi-Wan Wednesdays” will deliver weekly toy and collectible reveals, and a ton of other cool Kenobi inspired merchandise. Read on for the full details and feast your eyes on the glorious key art below:
“Star Wars fans are gearing up for a fresh look at the roots of the iconic battle between the light side and dark side with Obi-Wan Kenobi, and these new products will give them a chance to revisit favorite characters, as well as celebrate new moments as this epic story continues,” said Paul Southern, senior vice president, Franchise & Licensing, Lucasfilm, Disney Consumer Products, Games, and Publishing.
Obi-Wan Wednesdays will showcase new items being released from key Star Wars licensees, including Hasbro, the LEGO Group, Mattel, and Funko, along with the first chance to pre-order before products hit shelves this summer. Each Wednesday, fans can head to ObiWanWednesdays.com at 10 a.m. PDT / 1 p.m. EDT for the latest drop of new products, with select offerings available for pre-order on Thursdays at 10 a.m. PDT / 1 p.m. EDT.
THE HASBRO TEAM STRIKES BACK
To ensure the program kicks off with a bang, the team at Hasbro has already revealed the first two items from the initiative. And boy are they mindblowing in quality. Fans of the Force FX lightsaber range are in for a real treat. But even a new lightsaber pales in comparison to the latest Premium Electronic Helmet reveal.
Obi-Wan’s lightsaber, inspired by its appearance in the limited series, gets the Force FX treatment in a stunning new release. The Star Wars: The Black Series Obi-Wan Kenobi Force FX Elite Lightsaber features a detailed hilt, electronic sounds, and lighting effects, as well as a removable blade, and is an elegant collectible for a more civilized age.
And for fans of Obi-Wan’s former apprentice, Hasbro also revealed its new Star Wars The Black Series Darth Vader Premium Electronic Helmet. The helmet features premium deco, realistic detail, and a design inspired by the Obi-Wan Kenobi limited series.
These awesome new additions to the collection will be available for pre-order tomorrow. In the meantime, be sure to check back regularly because we’ll be bringing you all the big weekly reveals. You’ll never miss a thing with Future of the Force.
Will you be spending some of your hard-earned credits on these fine collectibles? Sound off below.
