Ahead of the NYC Toy Fair 2017, Hasbro has released a set of images previewing several new upcoming Star Wars toys including a Black Series Poe Dameron electronic helmet which features a surround sound speaker system that plays X-wing and TIE fighter sound effects as well as a selection of sounds from Poe’s iconic ball droid BB-8!
In addition to Poe Dameron’s helmet, Hasbro has also revealed a Nerf Glowstrike Stormtrooper Deluxe Blaster which is actually based on the Megablaster that was used by a First Order stormtrooper on the deck of The Finalizer when Poe and Finn escaped in a TIE fighter in The Force Awakens.
Lastly, Hasbro will also be releasing a new lightsaber part of their Bladebuilders line curiously called Rey Bladebuilders Path of the Lightsaber. Could this be our first look at Rey’s very own lightsaber in Star Wars: The Last Jedi? It’s highly doubtful Lucasfilm would let something this big be revealed as a toy so far ahead of the film’s release but when one begins on the path to becoming a Jedi, they first must demonstrate their readiness to be trained. Once the test is passed, they acquire a Kyber crystal and construct their very own lightsaber. The chance Rey will construct her own seems unlikely as the Kyber crystal inside the Skywalker lightsaber clearly called out to her.
