Lucasfilm might not have a direct presence at SDCC 2017 but we are still going to see plenty of reveals from Star Wars publishing, comics, and collecting! Friday is the day for Star Wars, with several heavy hitting panels that promise to deliver on announcements!
Friday July 21st
Star Wars Collectibles Updates with Lucasfilm’s Brian Merten and Dolly Ahluwalia (10:00-11:00 am PST, Room 7AB)
Lucasfilm offers a look at the latest news and revelations for Star Wars collectibles. Expect revelations from all the normal participants, plus a few surprises.
Lucasfilm Publishing: New Star Wars Stories from a Galaxy Far, Far, Away (12:00pm - 1:00pm PST, Room 7AB)
Get ready, rebels! Bestselling, fan-favorite authors Christian Blauvelt (Star Wars Made Easy), Cullen Bunn (Star Wars: Darth Maul), Christie Golden (Battlefront II: Inferno Squad), Claudia Gray (Leia: Princess of Alderaan), Jarrett J. Krosoczka (Star Wars Jedi Academy: The Force Oversleeps), Cavan Scott (Star Wars Adventures), Beth Revis (Star Wars: Rebel Rising), and Landry Walker (Star Wars Adventures) discuss their latest stories set in a galaxy far, far away. Also featured will be exclusive sneak peeks at upcoming stories, surprise guests, and giveaways exclusive to SDCC. Moderated by Lucasfilm's Michael Siglain.
Hasbro: Star Wars (1:00pm - 2:00pm PST, Room 7AB)
Members of the Hasbro team discuss the popular Hasbro Star Wars line. Attendees will get an in-depth look at Hasbro's latest action figure offerings. Word on the HoloNet is that there may also be a few surprises, including a special product reveal!
Hasbro SDCC 2017 Exclusives
Hasbro has three Black Series exclusives available at SDCC 2017; Luke with Speeder ($89.99 USD), Thrawn deluxe set ($49.99 USD) and the newly revealed Rey & Luke TLJ two-pack ($49.99 USD?)! HasbroToyShop announced that these exclusives will also be made available in limited quantities on their website on 8/14!
The Rey and Luke will more than likely be part of the first wave of TLJ figures released on Force Friday (September 1st, 2017). The Thrawn will also see a wide release in standard Black Series packaging without the exclusive accessories. For those of us not attending SDCC 2017 we should have a few shots at getting these figures! Be cautious over the weekend, don't fall victim to exclusive hype and over pay on the secondary market! Let these cool a bit and head to the secondary market after 8/14.
Good luck to those on the Hunt before, during, and after the Con!
