Lucasfilm has just released the packaging design for the Star Wars Rebels action figure line, which is based on their upcoming animated series. They've also revealed some minor plot details in their description of the upcoming Lucasfilm's Star Wars Rebels panel at New York Comic Con.
Star Wars Rebels continues the epic tradition of the legendary Star Wars saga with all-new exciting, action-packed adventures. It is a dark time in the galaxy, as the evil Galactic Empire tightens its grip of power from world to world. As the series begins, Imperial forces have occupied a remote planet, ruling with an iron fist and ruining the lives of its people. But there are a select few who are brave enough to stand up against the endless Stormtroopers and TIE fighters of the Empire: the clever and motley crew of the starship Ghost. Together, this ragtag group will face threatening new villains, have thrilling adventures, and become heroes.
Hasbro's Star Wars Rebels line will feature highly detailed 3.75-inch action figures with multiple points of articulation. The figures are scheduled to be released in stores in 2014.
Lucasfilm's Star Wars Rebels panel takes place on Saturday, October 12, 2013, from 2:45 p.m. - 3:45 p.m. in room 1E of the Javits Convention Center.
