    Hasbro to reissue Star Wars Monopoly

    Hasbro have announced that they will reissue the latest version of Star Wars Monopoly after complaints that the board game featured no female characters. The game, which was released in September 2015, currently features player tokens for Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker from the classic Star Wars trilogy, along with Kylo Ren and Finn from The Force Awakens. This lead to online outrage over the ommission of the main protogonist of the latest movie, Rey. Hasbro initially stated that as the game was released several months before the release of The Force Awakens that the inclusion of Rey would have been a potential spoiler that they wished to avoid, although this doesn't explain the inclusion of Finn as a character fighting for the Resistance which is an equal spoiler in its own right. Further to this, other Hasbro offerings have failed to include Rey, including a Millennium Falcon set that includes Chewbacca, Finn and BB-8 figurines. This lead to the hashtag #WheresRey trending worldwide, tracking Rey's absence from Star Wars merchandise in leading chain stores. A new version of Star Wars Monopoly which includes Rey will be available later in 2016, although no release date has been confirmed so far.

    Build your own lightsaber with Hasbro

    For years, plastic toy lightsabers have been available, but Hasbro's new lightsaber system - Bladebuilders - due to launch later this year allows kids (or big kids!) to create a lightsaber of their own design. Different hilts, blades, and connecting parts are available to mix and match for a unique weapon from a more civilized age. The starter pack is said to contain a lightsaber with light and sound, two daggers, an expansion hilt, and several connectors so that you can get started with your custom design right away. Bladebuilders will be on display at the American International Toy Fair in New York this weekend.

    Hasbro told to stop making EU figures

    According to a report from Jedi Temple Archives, Lucasfilm has informed Hasbro to stop making new expanded universe figures, or even re-releasing old ones. So far there are only a few exceptions to this instruction; rereleases of Bastila Shan, Darth Malgus, Republic Trooper, and Starkiller have all been given the go-ahead due to poor distribution on their original run. Hasbro will instead be focusing on the new Star Wars: Rebels line and classic trilogy characters, and while the prequel era is not off-limits we can expect to see a decrease in activity there too. It could be that this is just a precaution while the Lucasfilm Story Group consolidates canon into one cohesive continuity, but it does seem to back up earlier rumours that the Star Wars expanded universe as we know it has its days well and truly numbered.
