The theatrical release of Rian Johnson’s STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI is fast-approaching, and of all the new characters and creatures that have been revealed, I don’t think there’s another with more buzz than the porgs. These little birdlike creatures are inhabitants of Ahch-To, the island where Luke Skywalker has been hanging out for a bit, and what we know of them so far is that Chewbacca seems to bond with the creatures. Already spawning some adorable merchandise and an upcoming book, Chewie and the Porgs, now comes news that they’ll get the 6″ action figure treatment from Hasbro this spring. The crew over at Hasbro just sent over an official photo of the porgs, announced this weekend at the MCM London Comic-Con.
It’s interesting to note that at 6″ scale, porgs are still really small, so the MSRP here is just $5.99 as opposed to the usual $19.99 cost of a Black Series figure. The Star Wars The Black Series Porgs are expected at retail in the Spring of 2018.
