On a lark, I decided to look for Micro Force images on Instagram. I thought maybe I find out if Series 3 had been released yet. And it had shown up in the UK, but they were completely different figures from those announced as part of the upcoming Solo movie products.
These official photos were posted by Hasbro Pulse. Comments with the photos state that this series has shown up at a UK store called Sainsburys in the last few weeks. I did check Sainsburys’ website, but they only had Series 1 listed.
This set is obviously a Last Jedi themed set, with six figures from that movie. I’m thrilled to get a “Jedi Exile” Luke (instead of the “Jedi Master”) look as well as Rose, Poe, Leia, and BB-9E. While Snoke wasn’t on my wishlist, I like the idea of him as the hologram figure since that’s how we were introduced to the character.
It’s also nice to see more Rogue One figures (including Chirrut, one of my favorites). Hopefully this trend of including 2 Rogue One figures in each set will continue at least until we get the main cast (and beyond!)
‘Most surprising to me, however is the reprint of the Kit Fisto figure from series 4 of the Fighter Pod line. Kit Fisto is one of my favorite Star Wars characters, and I never found the original figure. I’m delighted to get another shot at him.
I have no clue why Hasbro is releasing a different Series 3 overseas than here. Hopefully this set will be Series 4 here in the US as there are definitely some must have figures in this line.
And, if any of you in the UK are reading this and has some of these figures to trade, let me know. The same Instagram posts mentioned earlier stated that Series 2 hasn’t shown up there, but they have here. No reason to let a silly thing like an ocean come get in the way of our Star Wars collections.
