Star Wars Celebration – Friday, Episode IX, Hasbro and Vader Immortal

If nothing else happened at Star Wars Celebration yesterday other than the ‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’ panel then I think the day would have been a phenomenal success.

But we did get more stuff. Aside from the smaller panels and the Podcast stage we got a few other tidbits to whet our appetites.

The Hasbro panel revealed some upcoming products, including the Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge themed ‘Black Series’ sets, which include a ‘First Order’ sets featuring Kylo Ren, Commander Pyre (the first character from ‘Resistance’ to get a Black Series figure) and First Order Mountain Trooper and a MSE Droid.

A ‘Droid Depot’ set that includes C-3PO, R2-D2, BB-8 and the former Star Tours Pilot turned Batuu DJ R-3X also receive the Black Series treatment and finally the’Smuggler’s Run’ set that includes Jedi Rey, Chewbacca, Porgs and Hondo Ohnaka (hells yeah!!!) in Black Series form as well.

There will also be a Luke Skywalker 3-Pack in the Vintage Collection featuring Luke in his Stormtrooper disguise, X-Wing Pilot gear and Jedi Knight Luke.

Luke’s X-Wing helmet has also been announced as an upcoming addition to the Black Series helmet collection.

ILM X-Lab and Occulus Studios held a panel for the upcoming VR Game Series ‘Vader Immortal’ which has you taking on the role of a Force Sensitive character and hunting down something that Vader is looking for (I think, based on the trailer which you can view HERE).

Lego also held a panel, and whilst I have no idea what happened other than the reveal of an upcoming set, the Tantive IV, at mini-figure scale with 1768 pieces, six mini-figs and a reasonable RRP of £179.99. For more info on the set visit THE BROTHERS BRICK.

And if you didn’t see it, or wasn’t to see it again, the full ‘The Rise of Skywalker’ panel can be seen HERE. And the teaser HERE.

And of course I put out my Reaction Life Debt Podcast episode last night which can be heard on your Pod-Catcher of choice or HERE.
