Comic-Con's official Star Wars day isn't until tomorrow, but retailers Hasbro and Hot Toys showcased their new toys for Star Wars: The Force Awakens during Preview Night on Wednesday. Hasbro unveiled their new toys showcasing the First Order Stormtroopers that will be featured in director J.J. Abrams' sci-fi adventure, while Hot Toys debuted their collection, which includes a massive TIE Fighter, the Millennium Falcon cockpit with Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and Chewbacca (Peter Mayhew) and figures for Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher) and Boba Fett. The Hot Toys line depicts designs from the original Star Wars trilogy, not the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be featured in a Hall H panel tomorrow, Friday, July 10, from 5:30 PM to 6:30 PM. Producer Kathleen Kennedy, director J.J. Abrams and writer Lawrence Kasdan, along with "special guests." A report surfaced earlier this week that there will be no new footage from the movie shown during the panel, but fans will get a behind-the-scenes glimpse at the making of this highly-anticipated sequel.
Fans who want to learn more about the Star Wars toys can check out the Hasbro Star Wars panel from 12:00 PM to 1:00 PM in room Room 7AB, which will be immediately followed by the Star Wars Collectibles Update panel from 1 PM to 2 PM in Room 7AB.
