Entertainment Earth Blasts Open the Pre-Orders for Hasbro Solo: A Star Wars Story Toys...

Written by

With the full trailer for Lucasfilm's Solo: A Star Wars Story now online, it's only fitting that the toys are close behind. I had a chance to check out quite a few of Hasbro's new offerings at the North American International Toy Fair back in February, and on Friday the 13th of April, 2018 - they will be available for purchase! As of now, my friends at Entertainment Earth (an affiliate of the site) have launched pre-orders on a few items from Solo, with the promise that more will become available later this week (stay tuned as I'll be reviewing one of them). Check out the Entertainment Earth Solo: A Star Wars Story toy page, and see below for a sneak-preview of what's on the way.

Available for pre-order at Entertainment Earth right now are the 6" Star Wars The Black Series Han Solo, Lando Calrissian and Range Trooper, along with a full Wave 16 Black Series case, which features additional characters from 1977's Star Wars: A New Hope. For those big into the classic 3.75" scale (as I am), there's the Force Link 2.0 Kessel Run Millennium Falcon, and the Class B Vehicles Case - which includes Han Solo's Landspeeder (with an exclusive figure) and an A-Wing Fighter from The Last Jedi.

Imagine launching into hyperspace with the Kessel Run Millennium Falcon, featuring hyperdrive light effects, sounds, and vibrations inspired by the iconic vehicle’s legendary jump through the famously dangerous Kessel Run! When kids wear their Force Link 2.0 wearable technology and pick up the 3.75-inch-included Han Solo figure, they can activate character sounds and phrases, or pick up the Millennium Falcon escape craft to hear flying sound effects! When hyperdrive is activated, kids can blast off the panels of the vehicle to imagine Han Solo jumping the Kessel Run space route in less than 12 parsecs!
