Lucasfilm's STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI is one of the most anticipated films of 2017, and a welcome return to where we last saw Rey, Finn, Poe Dameron and Luke Skywalker at the end of 2015's STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS. Launching on Force Friday II - September 1, 2017 - and rolling out well into the winter months, a new collection of STAR WARS toys based on THE LAST JEDI will hit retail, and while countless licensees will be in on the action, here at THE ROCK FATHER Magazine we're presenting a series of STAR WARS Checklists, this one focusing on Hasbro's classic 3¾" action figures, vehicles and playsets (carrying on the tradition that Kenner started 40 years ago)- along with the ever-popular "Black Series" of collector-focused 6" figures and accessories. If you'd like to keep track of what's available or coming soon from these lines, this is the place to be!

Officially announced at the 2017 Star Wars Celebration Orlando, Star Wars Forces of Destiny is a new, multi-faceted movement featuring an original series of animated shorts (each 2-3 minutes in length) that will explore exciting, all-new adventures of key characters in the Star Wars Saga, including Rey, Jyn Erso, Sabine Wren, Princess Leia, Ahsoka Tano and others. The stories will also be supported by a line of toys from Hasbro, including new ‘Adventure Figures’ – a fusion between traditional dolls and action figures, creating a whole new way to play Star Wars. Additionally, there will be other extensions of the line including bedding, apparel, books and more. Having two daughters, our family is very excited for the Forces of Destiny, and early reaction shows that many of you are too! With that in mind, The Rock Father is pleased to present the Star Wars Forces of Destiny Checklist. Here you'll find a list of current, upcoming and rumored toys from Hasbro, plus information on series episodes and other products as I have it. Products from Star Wars Forces of Destiny will be available for sale beginning August 1, 2017. Additional characters will hit stores this Fall, with more scheduled for 2018.

For a new generation of STAR WARS fans, Disney XD's animated series, STAR WARS REBELS has been "a first step into a larger world." While The Rock Daughters were already familiar with the original STAR WARS Trilogy thanks to their parents (quite strong in The Force, we are), it's was REBELS that really threw the doors wide open and created a pair of hardcore STAR WARS fans. Set in the years between REVENGE OF THE SITH and A NEW HOPE, STAR WARS REBELS has provided new adventures with a new cast of characters - often interacting with some fan favorites from the live-action films that have been delighting audiences for the past forty years. While there has been quite a bit of different merchandise released featuring characters from STAR WARS REBELS, this checklist focuses on Hasbro's classic 3¾" action figures, vehicles and playsets (carrying on the tradition that Kenner started 40 years ago)- along with the ever-popular "Black Series" of collector-focused 6" figures and accessories (and a few extras). Look for this list to be updated frequently with new items (and soon pictures) as the collection continues to grow.

NEW! Looking for STAR WARS Carships? Checklist for those is here!

STAR WARS fans of all ages got excited in 2014 when it was first revealed that Mattel would get to dabble with the STAR WARS license for the very first time under their flagship HOT WHEELS brand. Jumping in heavy, the announcement came with the debut of a life-sized, functional Darth Vader character car, along with the slow roll-out of a variety of STAR WARS-inspired rides across several different assortments, pack sizes and retailer exclusives, keeping up has quickly become a difficult pursuit. That's why created a checklist, complete with all the details I can wrangle for this exciting collection. This list will continue to be updated regularly with the latest releases not only for the Hot Wheels Star Wars Character Cars, but also other Star Wars-themed Hot Wheels including special assortments and Pop Culture Series releases!
