New Hasbro TV Spots Reveal 'The Last Jedi' Toys (Updated!)

By: Benjamin Hart

Some unexpectedly awesome news just came to our attention(thanks, Chris!). Today, Hasbro uploaded a collection of TV spots that give us our first official looks at some of the toys from Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

The two commercials were added to Hasbro's YouTube channel and cover several of the new products that will be hitting store shelves soon. The first focuses on the BB-8 Playset, which features a First Order themed play area that looks like the iconic droid when folded up. Included with the playset are action figures of Supreme Leader Snoke, a Praetorian Guard, and Kylo Ren.

The second ad focuses largely on the "Force Link Band" that's shown in the first video. The band is wearable and can play various pieces of dialogue and sound effects when it interacts with certain action figures and vehicles. Kylo Ren's TIE Silencer is used as an example in the spot, but you can also spot a Resistance A-Wing and Ski Speeder in the background of some shots.

Update: While both of the original videos were removed, Yahoo has since released the second TV spot, which you can watch here:

We can only assume that all of these toys, and many more, will be available at various retailers starting September 1st, "Force Friday II".
