Report: 

During the HASCON FANMILy event there were numerous panels for the various brands and licenses. The first panel we went to was Star Wars 40 years of play. In this panel they started off with what it was like back in the day. They showed pictures of products from the 70's and 80's such as the original light sabers that were inflatable (I remember having a couple of those and doing light saber battles with my dad). 

As they moved their way through the yrs they talked about the most recent Force Friday and revealed some yet to be announced figures and products that will be coming soon from the various lines. The biggest reveal was the Darth Vader helmet. This helmet is the newest installment to the Black Series line and will come with the various sounds of Darth Vader and will consist of multiple pieces. 

They announced a couple new figures for the upcoming Vintage Collection a Hoth trooper and Snoke. The Rogue One Hover tank will join the line for vehicles.

There were more Black Series figures announce Rose, Poe Dameron, Finn in First Order disquise, and Snoke.

For Force Link figures they announce General Leia, Luke Skywalker (Jedi Exile), Rey (Island Journey), DJ, Rose in First Order disguise three pack with BB-8 and BB-9E, R2-D2, Yoda, and Obi-Wan Kenobi.   

This panel was a lot of fun to attend. It was great seeing the various images from the 77 and the early years of Star Wars. I remember having the Inflatable Lightsaber (had two so my dad and I could have Light Saber battles). The reveals got the crowd excited and there was a lot of clapping. It was a great way to start off the Star Wars brand.
