During Toy Fair 2019, Inside the Magic had the pleasure of attending Hasbro’s brand preview event (you can check out our favorite Disney and Marvel items here) and there was so much “Star Wars” stuff to love this year. It was too early for “Star Wars: Episode IX” merchandise since most of that won’t be revealed until Triple Force Friday on October 4, but Hasbro did show off some cool retro-inspired items to celebrate the history of the space saga. For tech-savvy fans, there’s also a lot to look forward to among this new merchandise.
