A few years back, Disney bought Lucasfilm and announced that there would be new Star Wars movies. A little while later, on their 50th anniversary, the Monkees released a new (and really good) album, Good Times. Now, Hasbro has brought back Fighter Pods, my favorite toy line ever, under the new name Micro Force. Life is good.
The first series (available now) is made of previously released figures. I was happy to see that they included C-3PO, since I hadn’t picked one up the first time around.
There are paint differences between the Fighter Pod and Micro Force versions of the figures (especially in the case of Ahsoka). While I am excited about these figures, I’m practically ecstatic about the completely new figures coming in wave 2, which feature Rey, Jyn Erso, Finn, BB-8, Kylo Ren, Captain Phasma, and a Death Trooper. I look forward to seeing if these figures (and future waves) are previewed at next month’s Toy Fair. Thanks again Hasbro!!
For those who keep track of such things, Threepio and Han came in one pack, and Ahsoka and the Stormtrooper came in another.
