Report: 

During the HASCON FANMILy event there were numerous panels for the various brands and licenses. The second Star Wars related panel we attended was one for the Forces of Destiny. In this panel they discussed some of what goes on behind the scenes in developing these new figures, behind the scenes of making the commercials, the show shorts announcing that there will be two shows airing in October with more shorts coming early next year, revealed a few new figures, and answered fan questions.

They revealed The Last Jedi versions of Kylo Ren and Rey. They also revealed the Platinum series Princess Leia with R2-D2 from A New Hope. We found out that there will be an Ahsoka with Loth Cat and a Padme from Attack of the Clones will be released before the holidays.

We also found out the in the original designs for Rey’s role play staff there was supposed to be a secret compartment to hide an item, but since it made the unit weaker it was removed from the final product.

This was a great panel overall lots of great information about the future of the series (shorts, figures, and merchandise) we learned a lot about this line. The future looks pretty good for this line.
