Whether you loved “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” or merely really liked it, it’s impossible to deny that several of the stand-out moments involved the Wookiee Chewbacca‘s interaction with those cuddly creatures the Porgs on the island planet of Ahch-To and aboard that famous starship the Millennium Falcon. More recently, these furry companions were seen interacting with each other on the official animated webseries “Star Wars: Forces of Destiny.”

This weekend the popular toy company (and frequent Lucasfilm licensor) Hasbro revealed an all-new set of toys celebrating the relationship between Chewbacca and the Porgs as seen in “Star Wars: Forces of Destiny.” The set will first be exclusively available at Hasbro’s San Diego Comic-Con’s booth next week.

Journeying to the sacred island of AHCH-TO, CHEWBACCA meets the PORGS, a curious avian species found throughout the secluded island. This detailed CHEWBACCA figure is lavishly furry and makes true-to-entertainment sounds when activated, while the PORG figures feature soft flocking that makes them a delight to hold and feel. The package carefully recreates the cockpit of the Millennium Falcon, making it perfect for display, and is sure to delight collectors and fans alike. Includes 11-inch CHEWBACCA figure, two PORG figures, PORGLET nest with two baby PORG figures, and two accessories. Requires 3 A76 alkaline batteries, included.

Hasbro’s “Star Wars: Forces of Destiny” Chewbacca and Porgs set will be available for $49.99 as a San Diego Comic-Con 2018 exclusive from July 18-22 (while supplies last) at Booth # 3329 in the San Diego Convention Center, and “limited quantities of this item will be available at select conventions and select online retailers after the convention in the relevant market.”
