a Galaxy Far, Far Away…with Star Wars Forces of Destiny
Disney and Lucasfilm announced Star Wars Forces of Destiny!
Star Wars Forces of Destiny is a new initiative celebrating the inspiring stories of iconic heroes from across the Star Wars universe. An original series of animated shorts (each 2-3 minutes in length) will explore exciting, all new adventures of key characters including Rey, Jyn Erso, Princess Leia, Sabine Wren, Ahsoka Tano and others, ahead of books and a TV special later in the year. Here’s a peek below!
Star Wars Forces of Destiny Action Figures!
I’m thrilled to share some exciting news for all Star Wars fans and collectors. In harmony with the Star Wars Forces of Destiny stories, new products are being created and that includes a line of super cool toys from Hasbro! And they are awesome; I’ve yet to see action figures this well made and realistic! These are not just any toys — they’re a futuristic concept — a new breed — a hybrid of ‘Adventure Figures’ — a fusion between traditional dolls and action figures, creating a whole new way to play Star Wars. Check out the girl power!
Princess Leia Organa & R2D2
Princess Leia is a bold leader, and R2D2 is a faithful, ever-helpful droid. The unbreakable bond between the two is based on a lifetime of friendship and adventure!
I’m very fond of Princess Leia and will miss Star Wars legend, Carrie Fisher, playing this role. I was beyond excited to see they created an Adventure Figure of her character. Princess Leia was the founder and General of the Resistance against the First Order and R2D2 played a huge role in assisting them as well. Neither are strangers to galactic battles and are both are recognized as two of the greatest heroes of the Rebellion.
This action set comes with an 11 inch Princess Leia Organa Adventure Figure and a very realistic R2D2 figure. Included are a vest, pair of boots, and a blaster, with the vest and boots being removable. The molded details of her outfit are meticulous; they look like real garments. Princess Leia’s face is nicely painted and her thick braided hair is elegantly pinned up on the back of her head. She’s able to hold the rebel blaster in either hand and if you squeeze her legs, her arm will lift and aim. As for articulation, her head turns both ways nicely, her right shoulder, elbow and wrist all swivel 360º with side to side wrist engagement. Her left arm has the action feature, but you can still move the shoulder, bend the elbow and manipulate the wrist. Her hips and knees also move so you can create some great action stances. R2D2’s head can swivel 360º and both legs have a full range of motion.
Rey of Jakku & BB-8
Rey always stands up for what she believes in, and BB-8 is a feisty, loyal droid! After becoming close friends on the desert world Jakku, they stick together no matter what.
Rey and BB-8 are alert and ready for action against the Dark Side and its menacing villains. Rey is 11 inches tall and decked out in her iconic Resistance outfit and gear, along with her trademark hairstyle. The set includes a lightsaber, holster belt, vest, pair of boots, 2 arm wraps, skirt, and blaster. There’s a lot of great detail in the both the Rey action figure and in BB-8 droid. Hasbro’s done a great job; Rey’s clothing looks so real as well.
Rey’s vest, arm warmers, skirt, boots and gun belt are removable. Both of Rey’s hands can hold a weapon, and when you squeeze her legs together, her torso and arms will twist left and right – so cool. She articulates very well; her head is on a ball joint, so she has great mobility. Her elbows, shoulders, and knees are also flexible. BB-8 is small, cute and adorable with the ability to move his head around.
Rey of Jakku
She is brave, true to her friends, and stands up for what she believes in!
Rey is a character with high standards and values plus she’s also a great modern day role model. The Force is with Rey, but she doesn’t know why. Help Rey on her epic adventures as she discovers her destiny and connection to the Force with this fully geared Rey Adventure Figure. Rey is featured with her trademark hairstyle and classic outfit from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Her face is really beautiful with sprinkles of freckles just like the character. Included with Rey are a staff, belt with bag, shirt, draped top, pair of shoes, 2 arm wraps, bracelet, and backpack.
This is a fantastic action figure doll; it’s so well made with great detail. You feel like Rey could step right into an action scene and clear out the bad guys. Her staff is her weapon and if you squeeze her legs, her torso will twist and the staff will move into fight action. This Adventure Figure also has great articulation with a good range of motion with her head, shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips and knees. Watch your back evil Galactic Empire!
A Rebel to the core, she takes matters into her own hands to protect others!
Jyn Erso is a character from Star Wars Rogue One movie. She’s on a dangerous mission to find her missing father and steal the Death Star plans. She’s impetuous, defiant, brave, fearless, and she finds higher purpose by taking on a desperate mission for the Rebel Alliance. This Jyn Erso Adventure Figure is packing some serious artillery and she knows how to use them. She’s 11 inches tall and looks awesome in her Star Wars attire which also has great detail. Her figure comes with a removable fabric vest, holster belt, a pair of boots, blaster, baton, and cloth hooded scarf.
Jyn’s face is also beautifully done and her wild wispy hair is pulled back in a neat bun. Just like the other Adventure Figures, if you squeeze Jyn’s legs, her torso will move and her baton will go a swinging! She also has the same great articulation as the other figures with a good range of motion with her head, shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips and knees.
Star Wars heroines are unique and they are honored and represented in this line for Star Wars Forces of Destiny toys. It’s a great line to not only appease the die hard Star Wars disciples but to introduce to younger and next generation fans as well. May the Force be with you!
I’m giving away Four Adventure Figures – 1 Winner Each – Good Luck!
