Lots of new toys for every collector – start saving your pennies now!

Gift giving season is nearly upon us, and there’s a new Star War flick coming out… so we’re getting a boat load of awesome new toys. We got a teaser of all of the new products from Hasbro, Lego, Mattel, and other big brands in the form a of a fun fan film earlier this week. If you haven’t seen it, check it out.

Let’s start with some of the highlights from LEGO…

lego at-st

75153 – AT-ST Walker Go on the hunt for Baze and the Rebel Trooper aboard the All Terrain Scout Transport. Open the top hatch, load up the AT-ST Driver and move the legs to speed into action. When you’ve tracked them down, turn the wheel to rotate the top and prepare to fire the spring-loaded shooters! Can Baze and the trooper escape the advancing AT-ST? That’s for you to decide… $39.99

lego tie striker

75154 – TIE Striker Prepare for launch with the amazing TIE Striker, the Empire’s atmospheric patrol fighter! Open the minifigure cockpit from the top or front and put in the TIE Pilot. Help the Imperial ground crew member put supplies in the rear hold and arm the spring-loaded shooters. Then adjust the huge wings and launch into the skies in search of rebels! $69.99

lego u wing

75155 – Rebel U-Wing Fighter Open the cockpit and place the U-Wing Pilot in his seat. Fire up the engines and launch into the sky. Keep a lookout below with the transparent window, and when you spot the enemy, fire the front spring-loaded shooters and stud shooters mounted in the side doors. You can even fold the wings back for a bigger model $79.99

I definitely need an AT-ST for my desk at work. You can check out more of what Lego has to offer at Brick Toy News.

On to Hasbro…

We’ll be seeing an expansion of the 3.75″ action figures, scale ships, and Nerf weapons we’ve loved since our childhoods. I want to feature this bad boy, though…

STAR-WARS-ROGUE-ONE-RAPID-FIRE-IMPERIAL-AT-ACT-Playset-932x924

This AT-ACT can be controlled via a remote, or your smart phone or tablet. The cargo hold opens; and it walks, moves its head, lights up, plays sounds, and shoots Nerf darts. It comes with 3.75″ scale figures of Jyn Erso, a driver, and an Astromech C2-B5 droid. It’ll set you back $299.99.

They had a group set up at this year’s SDCC, which you can see in this booth walk through with the Hasbro Star Wars team’s marketing director.

Along with the new figures and miniatures is this beauty perfect for all of your Star Wars RPG gaming needs. It also comes in black.

Mattel is offering up some of our favorite ships in their Hot Wheels line…

This X-Wing/TIE Striker set is $10.00 and they’ll be offering other ships – like the U-Wing – in singles for $5.00.

New Pops and Wobblers to add to your cubicle collection (we all have at least one)…

    I need more storage space! Between tabletop and star wars toys I’m tapped.

      It was bad enough when I only played 40K, now with AoS, Warmachine, and my recent dive into DC/Marvel… I no longer have a garage that use to hold 2 vehicles lol

      • Jay

        Totally – my wife is losing it with garage space being eaten up!

        • Xodis

          lol sounds like mine when I took over the book shelf with D&D and FFG Star Wars RPG books.

            Roll on the release of an electronic reader that looks and feels like a large format hardbacked book.

  • Paul Sinanan

    do the AT ATs actually walk? Or do they just do the movement like the video shows?

    • They actually walk. They’re on stands so they don’t walk through the display, and have to be reset constantly. I’m sure there will be more video available as we get closer to the release.

  • Here at BoLS HQ, we’re trying to see if there is a way to have that walking AT-ACT deliver us coffee.
