Jedi News has released a press image of the Series 5 packaging along with an actual figure shot of Enfys Nest from the new Solo movie!
I’m especially looking forward to Maz and Enfys Nest. The “thumbs-up” BB-8 looks cute too. I’m wondering if the Kylo Ren and Captain Phasma figures will be new sculpts or reprints of series 2.
I still haven’t found Series 3 and 4 yet, but I’m sure they will arrive in my area soon. I can’t believe how many new characters we are getting in a line that’s been dormant for five years! Thanks Hasbro!
I’ve spent a lot of time on this blog discussing what new figures are coming and to where, but I never finished reviewing the current series! So, in the spirit of being grateful for what you have, here we go.
Series 2 is the first series to give us new figures, and features figures from Rogue One and The Force Awakens.
Jyn Erso is one of my favorite figures in this set, and her enemy the Death Trooper is a close second. Both figures have a ton of detail despite their small size. I especially like the mix of gloss and matte paints on the Trooper.
This mix of gloss and matte paints is also used on Kylo Ren. Now that we have Ren and Captain Phasma (and Snoke in an upcoming set) we really need a basic First Order Stormtrooper.
I couldn’t be happier with this set and the fact that Hasbro keeps making more of these figures. I am anxiously awaiting the new sets!
About a week ago I posted that the UK had a different Micro Force Series 3 than we were getting here in the US (based on the photos shown during the big Solo toy reveal).
However, Hasbro sent out May the Fourth packages to some US-based Star Wars sites, and these packages included the same The Last Jedi-themed series 3 as seen in the UK, instead of the Solo-themed series 3 originally advertised.

To top it off, Entertainment Earth is now offering pre-orders for series 3pre-orders for series 3, with this handy little picture that I think shows which characters are packed with which characters.
I really don’t care which order the figures come out, as long as they are all released. I’m ecstatic about the figures pictured above and I can’t wait to have K-2SO and a goggle-wearing Chewie (among others) join them. Maybe we will see the Solo-themed line in the fall (maybe when Solo is released on disc?).
In honor of Star Wars Day, the local hospital system gave away this T-shirt to anyone who gave blood today.

I should have had them check my midichlorian count while I was there…
