We couldn’t be more excited for Star Wars Rebels especially in regards to this early morning’s debut of the extended trailer! Its fantastic to hear Jonathan Arnold Taylor back as Obi-Wan Kenobi and to see such Original Trilogy influences. But by far the most exciting thing for us about Rebels is the use of Kenner action figure line designs.
In this trailer it is easy to make out the Kenner TIE Fighter ascetic as it has the smaller Solor Panels which the vintage toy company went with to keep costs down.
Also featured are the “cooling fins” which Kenner featured on its Stormtrooper’s E-11 blaster accessory.
And finally, although not shown in the trailer but found in the just released Star Wars Rebels Visual Guide the Imperial Troop Transport or ITT. October can not get here fast enough!
And of course we’ll be watching each episode with a careful Kenner and Hasbro eye and will keep you up to date with all action figure related appearances.
