Though not out until 2017, Lego is already well ahead of the game on what vehicles and characters will make the leap from the film to actual toys.

Hasbro’s Steve Evans Talks About the Difficult Alchemy of Action Figures at SWCE

Star Wars Black Series Kylo Ren (standard)

This past year has been a massive one for Hasbro's Star Wars lines. From the collector favorite Star Wars Black Series to the 3.75" figures and everything in between, you can hardly find a Hasbro aisle anywhere in the country that isn't jammed with figures from a galaxy far, far away. While at Star Wars Celebration Europe this past weekend, we caught up Steve Evans, design director for Hasbro's Star Wars figures, to talk about what's new, what's coming, and how Hasbro plans on keeping the line fresh headed into Rogue One later this year.

We also have some new images of the upcoming Black Series wave, due to arrive later this fall, along with new 3.75" figures and vehicles featuring your favorite Star Wars Rebels characters.

Best Cosplay Ever: Star Wars Celebration Europe (Day Three)

Sabine Wren, Rey, Hera, Ahsoka

Have you had your fill of Star Wars cosplay yet? Good, because we're back again with another installment of tremendous costuming from the show floor of this year's Star Wars Celebration. Every single day, these committed folks have been putting on a show for more casual con-goers, and being the champs they are, stopping every single time a family, solo attendee or kid asks for a picture. After three days of total, non-stop action, you'd think there was nothing left in the tank for these cosplayers, but Sunday showed these creative attendees had a lot more to offer than we ever expected.

From the original saga, to The Force Awakens, to the animated shows, comics and beyond, these are the best Star Wars cosplays from day three of Star Wars Celebration.

Living the Jedi Dream in ILMxLAB’s Trials on Tatooine

ILMxLAB

Regardless of how invested you are in the Star Wars universe, there has been a time in nearly every person's life when they imagined swinging a lightsaber around. The iconic weapon of the Jedi is such a cool piece of technology, it's hard not to want to be able to use one yourself in real life. Though you can buy replicas for fans of any age ranging from simple toys to expensive recreations, at the end of the day, they're just facsimiles. With ILMxLAB's Trials on Tatooine virtual reality experiment, you may only get to hold a HTC Vive controller, but it's undoubtedly a much more authentic lightsaber experience.

We stepped into the world of ILMxLAB's Trials on Tatooine at Star Wars Celebration Europe this weekend, after waiting for many months to finally give it a go. Announced earlier this year, the experiment serves as a tech demo of sorts, letting ILMxLAB and the team at Lucasfilm try out some techniques to see what works and what engages the audience. In it, you're stranded on the home planet of Anakin and Luke Skywalker as a test of sorts for your Jedi training. That means you get a lightsbaber, and with it all the excitement it entails.

Best Cosplay Ever: Star Wars Celebration Europe (Day Two)

Sequined Stomtroopers

The first day of Star Wars Celebration Europe was chock full of incredible people decked out in fantastic costumes, but the cosplay contest held late opening night was a sight to behold. More than two dozen entrants dazzled the crowd and judges with intricate costumes for characters both beloved by all and some known to but a few at first glance. The judges certainly didn't have an easy night, but out in the crowd, it was pure spectacle that we could just enjoy. But the cosplay goodness didn't stop there. If you thought day one was full of amazing handiwork, the folks we encountered on day two upped the ante tremendously.

From the original saga, to The Force Awakens, to the animated shows, comics and beyond, these are the best Star Wars cosplays from day two of Star Wars Celebration.
