We are gearing up for a major barrage of all things Star Wars in 2014. With filming set to begin on Episode VII, the Clone Wars wrap up episodes, and the premiere of the new Star Wars: Rebels series this fall, 2014 should be a year full of great news, rumors, and overall awesomeness in the Star Wars universe.
On StarWars.com and on the Star Wars Twitter and Facebook feeds this week, a new action figure made its debut:
The Inquisitor, the Empire’s Jedi hunter and a major new villain in the highly anticipated ‘Star Wars Rebels‘ animated series, was unveiled by Lucasfilm at this year’s New York Comic Con. Today, StarWars.com is excited to present the official reveal for the character’s first ever 3.75-inch action figure from Hasbro.
The figure — the first to be seen from the upcoming ‘Star Wars Rebels‘ Saga Legends line — features five points of articulation, show-accurate accessories, and is sculpted in the art style of the series. Look for the Inquisitor and the ‘Star Wars Rebels‘ Saga Legends line to hit store shelves in fall 2014, and stay tuned for more ‘Star Wars Rebels‘ toy news from Hasbro at international Toy Fairs and here at StarWars.com.
While we’re on the subject of Star Wars, here’s what Dave Filoni had to say of the final episodes of Star Wars: The Clone Wars:
We have wrapped production on all of the remaining ‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars’ episodes, and while that might be sad news in one way, it’s good news in another. It means you will finally get to see them. When, exactly, is a detail I cannot yet share. I can confirm that in early 2014 you will be watching the final episodes of The Clone Wars, including one of Master Yoda’s most challenging missions.
