UK Toy Fair and U.S. New York Toy Fair 2017 Preview : Star Wars

Hello Star Wars Fans , Here is my preview of what expect to be announced as far as Toys and Collectibles for Star Wars in 2017 from the different licensees. Star Wars is on a high with both The Force Awakens and Rogue One A Star Wars Story also very soon Star Wars Episode 8. 1st up Hasbro with The Black Series 6 Inch , 3.75 WalMart Exclusives and 5 POA Figures. Now Hasbro has been up and down with the quality of their sculpts of their figures but with The Black Series 6 Inch Figures since Rogue One A Star Wars Story have looked amazing as well as their Prequel and Saga Figures. What I expect to see? Well maybe some teases for Episode 8 but nothing announced they may save some of those announcements for SDCC San Diego Comic Con 2017 later in July but will see you never know. However I do expect to see more figures get announced for Rogue One A Star Wars Story , some more Prequel and Saga Figures also maybe a few surprises as well for Action Figures and Vehicles. Moving on to a company I like a lot and they are Hot Toys and Sideshow Collectibles their 1/6th Scale Collectible Figures and Premium Format Figures (or Statues some call them) have looked amazing with great detail and excellent facial sculpts and better than Hasbro in my opinion the sculpts just jump off the movie screen and into your home some of the ones from The Force Awakens and some of the upcoming 1/6th Scale Collectible Figures and Premium Format Figures for Rogue One A Star Wars Story look amazing the Jyn Erso Hot Toys Figure especially I have that on pre order at BigBadToyStore can’t wait to get it later this year!!! What I expect to see? As with Hasbro for Hot Toys and Hot Toys maybe some teases for Episode 8 but nothing announced they may save some of those announcements for SDCC San Diego Comic Con 2017 later in July. Now on to another company that makes great Star Wars Collectibles S.H. Figure Arts wow their 6 Inch Star Wars Collectible Figures are amazing and their head sculpts are so spot on. The down side is the prices are kind of high but what you get in terms of detail on the figures they are like having mini Hot Toys Collectible Figures. What I expect to see? As with Hasbro and Hot Toys for S.H. Figure Arts maybe some teases for Episode 8 but nothing announced they may save some of those announcements for SDCC San Diego Comic Con 2017 later in July. Now on to the next company Lego now I only have a few Lego Star Wars mini figures but their playsets are so good and their mini figures are nice with good little details on them. What do I expect to see for Lego Star Wars? Maybe some teases for Episode 8 but nothing announced they may save some of those announcements for SDCC San Diego Comic Con 2017 later in July. On to the next Star Wars licensee preview and that is Kotobukiya now their statues are amazing with great detail and excellent pain work for both The Prequels and Saga Line plus from The Force Awakens and Rogue One A Star Wars Story. Also they are affordable too which is nice. What to expect from Kotobukiya? Maybe some teases for Episode 8 but nothing announced they may save some of those announcements for SDCC San Diego Comic Con 2017 later in July. And lastly Gentle Giant Studios they make some amazing mini busts and some statues for Star Wars for The Prequels and Saga Line plus from The Force Awakens and Rogue One A Star Wars Story. The mini busts especially have great detail and look great on your collectibles stands or computer desk. What to expect from Gentle Giant? Again maybe some teases for Episode 8 maybe some announcements but they will be saved for SDCC San Diego Comic Con 2017 later in July. You sense a theme here I don’t expect anything from Episode 8 until either at Star Wars Celebration or SDCC San Diego Comic Con 2017 later in July. But who knows I’ve been wrong before it won’t be the 1st time. What makes this years UK Toy Fair and U.S. New York Toy Fair special we don’t know what products are coming in 2017 and that is exciting some surprises maybe be in store for us Star Wars fans of that Galaxy Far Far Away. Both UK Toy Fair and U.S. New York Toy Fair 2017 should be very exciting and I can’t wait to see what us Star Wars Fans have to look forward to in the coming year. Can’t wait for the event next month and MTFBWY Always!!!
