New Battle Rollers

I picked up two new Star Wars Battle Rollers, Rio and Poe Cameron. I bet these two would have entertaining banter.

Solo Battle Rollers

While out of town recently, I stopped into Toys R Us and found a new Battle Rollers playset from the upcoming Solo movie. The back of the box showed other upcoming Battle Rollers including many figures that weren’t previewed at this year’s New York Toy Fair.  I also noticed another figure in the photo of the set itself (see bottom of the photo below).  It looks like it may be a new trooper (possibly a Range Trooper?).

The new set includes:

  • Han Solo in the Millennium Falcon
  • Rio Durant in an Imperial AT-Hauler
  • Kylo Ren in a Tie Silencer
  • Poe Dameron in his signature X-Wing (a must have for me)
  • The Emperor in an Imperial Shuttle (re-release from the first set)
  • Chewbacca in the Millennium Falcon

I’m looking forward to this new set, and hope the the K-2SO previewed at Toy Fair is coming soon as well.

Stay tuned later this week as the new Micro Force reviews continue!

Hot Wheels Star Wars Battle Rollers

I usually see what new toys are coming out thanks to the power of the internet, but I completely missed the new Hot Wheels Battle Rollers until they caught my eye in the Hot Wheels section of the toy aisle.

 

BattleRollersXWing2

 

The figure is roughly the same size as the new Micro Force figures (or the old Fighter Pods figures, however you want to look at it).  I love how it looks like Luke is sitting in a version of the X-Wing that you could ride for a quarter in front of a grocery store.

 

BattleRollersXWing

 

The ship is mostly die-cast and has a ball bearing in the bottom (hence the “Roller” part of the name).

The line also has Rey in the Millennium Falcon, Boba Fett in Slave-1, The Emperor in an Imperial Shuttle, and Darth Vader in his Tie Fighter.  A version of Vader with his light saber comes with a Darth Vader head carrying case (similar to the carrying case from the 80’s).

There are also two two-packs.  One has another version of the same Luke ship (but with a lightsaber) with the saber-less version of Darth Vader. The other pack comes with Rey and the Falcon along with a First Order Tie Fighter and Pilot.

Just follow the link here to see them all.

UPCOMING SHIPS

I also heard from Yakface (the website, not the alien) that series 2 will feature the following:

Kylo Ren /TIE Silencer
Darth Maul/Sith Infiltrator
TIE Fighter Pilot/TIE Fighter
Poe Dameron/X-Wing Fighter
Yoda/Jedi Starfighter
C-3PO/Landspeeder
R2-D2/X-wing
BB-8/”Zulu”
“Rio Monkey Quad Hauler”

I’m not sure what a Rio Monkey Quad Hauler is (maybe the “space monkey” Bistan from Rogue One?) but I am looking forward to find out. And it looks like we will get a Battle Roller version of Poe Dameron before we get a Micro Force version!

WANT LIST

I’m so excited about this line that I already have a want list (this is for you Hasbro!)
Wedge Antilles in either an X-Wing or a snowspeeder
K-2SO in a U-Wing
Kit Fisto in a Jedi starfighter
Greedo in a…okay, I have no idea what he’d be driving/flying, but I trust your creativity Hasbro!

I will definitely be collecting more from this line.  Thanks Hasbro!
