Hasbro is definitely going all in with its Forces of Destiny line. Originally, it just seemed like it was going to focus on the Star Wars female characters, but it’s continued to expand to other characters. Today, Hasbro showed off its latest addition to the line – a Forces of Destiny Chewbacca figure. Along with some Porgs.
Say what you will about the Ewoks, but at least they served a purpose. The Porgs seemed strictly created for marketing purposes. Will that be enough to sell a few more of these sets? We’ll find out. Here’s the official Hasbro write-up:
(HASBRO/Ages 4 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: $49.99/Available at Booth #3329 at Comic-Con International in San Diego)
Journeying to the sacred island of AHCH-TO, CHEWBACCA meets the PORGS, a curious avian species found throughout the secluded island. This detailed CHEWBACCA figure is lavishly furry and makes true-to-entertainment sounds when activated, while the PORG figures feature soft flocking that makes them a delight to hold and feel. The package carefully recreates the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon, making it perfect for display, and is sure to delight collectors and fans alike.
