The Walt Disney Co. and Lucasfilm kicked off the nine-week Mando Mondays event with the official reveal of dozens of new toys, games, collectibles, and consumer products tied to the second season of Star Wars: The Mandalorian which debuts Friday on Disney+. While numerous licensees were in the mix, in terms of quantity and variety, Hasbro led the charge with new action figures across multiple lines. While the addition of new characters to the super-articulated The Vintage Collection and Black Series was expected, the debut of a Mandalorian Retro Collection was a surprise.
Star Wars Retro Collection 3.75-inch Action Figure Assortment
Over the past two years, Hasbro’s Star Wars Retro Collection has provided kids and collectors with some updated versions of classic action figures in the same scale as the original Kenner Star Wars collection that was in stores from 1978-1985. One tantalizing possibility has always been the opportunity to create new characters in the classic style that could essentially continue the line beyond the original 95 figures, and aside from a few one-offs such as Grand Moff Tarkin, that hasn’t happened until now.
The Mandalorian, Cara Dune, IG-11, Kuiil, The Child, Moff Gideon, and Greef Karga are designed to look and play like the original figures of the ’70s and ’80s and come on cardbacks that feature Kenner branding and a weathered look. Available at major and specialty retailers next spring.
Monopoly: Star Wars: The Mandalorian Edition with Figure
Fans looking to add a Remnant Stormtrooper to their Retro Collection will only find it as a special pack-in with this new version of Monopoly. Players travel the galaxy evading Imperial enemies that threaten the safety of The Child. The updated version of the classic property trading game includes Mandalorian-themed tokens and gameplay. Available exclusively at Hasbro Pulse and shopDisney this fall.
Star Wars: The Vintage Collection 3.75-inch Action Figures
Several new characters are joining The Vintage Collection. The Din Djarin (The Mandalorian) & The Child Build-Up Pack includes the title character with weathered deco, removable helmet, Imperial credits, camtono (safe), The Child, and more available exclusively at Walmart. Moff Gideon and The Armorer are available at most major and specialty retailers.
Star Wars: The Black Series
Like its Vintage Collection counterpart, Hasbro’s super-detailed 6-inch scale line is getting a Build-Up Pack that is available exclusively at Target this fall. Additionally, a Speeder Bike and Scout Trooper set is available exclusively at Amazon and includes The Child in a satchel plus other accessories.
Star Wars The Child Animatronic Edition with 3-in-1 Carrier
Hasbro’s hit holiday item gets a shopDisney exclusive version with a special carrier that can be worn on the chest or over the shoulder, and converts into a sleeping blanket.
