SDCC Coverage 2017

SDCC-logo

It is that time again for the super convention San Diego Comic-Con to take place. As always with the four-day con, it begins with Preview Night on proceeding Wednesday where companies like Hasbro offer a preview of some of the items they will be showcasing at the convention. Thursday will then feature the Hasbro Preview Breakfast for members of the press and then Friday will host Hasbro’s Star Wars Brand Panel at 1pm-2pm PST. Here is where you will find all of the reveals and information about what is presented at SDCC this year. We will be updating our social media pages as updates and reveals are made and then will be adding all new content to this page for a one-stop-shop for all things Star Wars action figure related from the annual California convention.

Wednesday – Preview Night
