Good news for Star Wars action figure collectors! The date and time for the Hasbro Star Wars panel at San Diego Comic Con was announced earlier today. The panel will take place Friday July 10th at 12pm PST in room 7AB. The announcement was made via the official Hasbro account this morning.

Could this panel be our first look at action figures from Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens? Hasbro did not show any at New York Toy Fair in February or Star Wars Celebration in April (though there was a tease at the Hasbro booth if you knew what to look for). This was due largely to the film being so far out and Hasbro and Lucasfilm wanting to hold back on some of the reveals and wanting the figures to be as close to ready as possible before the reveal. The fact that Hasbro will have a panel at SDCC, after not having one at Celebration leads me to believe that they are finally ready to drop something big!
