Hasbro is getting out ahead of the game on Star Wars Day 2020 with the release of a Baby Yoda edition of Monopoly and a wave of new action figures and roleplay gear in The Black Series and Vintage Collection lineups. If you're down to celebrate a few days early, the details on these new releases can be found below.

The Black Series Boba Fett (Prototype Armor) electronic helmet headlines the new wave (UPDATE: Several awesome Amazon exclusives were added below). It's based on the 1978 "Supertrooper" design from Joe Johnston, which was an early prototype for the Boba Fett armor in Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back. The costume appeared the test shot featured in the video below.

Features of the helmet include a flip-down rangefinder with flashing LED lights and an illuminated heads-up display (HUD). Pre-orders for the helmet are available here at Entertainment Earth for $99.99. It follows the more traditional The Black Series Boba Fett helmet that was unveiled last year, which you can pre-order here at Entertainment Earth for $119.99.
