Hasbro’s panel began with the show exclusives (which were the same as SDCC). Then they gave a recap of their SDCC reveals from a few weeks ago. Next Hasbro gave a behind the scenes look at the how they create a Black Series figure from concept to final product. And finally, they announced that all figures in The Vintage Collection will feature Photo Real head sculpts and provided two new reveals.

In The Vintage Collection, we will be getting a Photo Real Leia in Boushh Disguise and in The Black Series collection we will be getting a Han Solo as Mudtrooper!
