Hasbro sent us some of their Forces of Destiny Toys for free to play with and Review. Opinions are 100% our own. Affiliat eLinks are contained within this post.The Forces of Destiny line of toys is based on the web series on YouTube. These are a series of shorts about the women of the Star Wars Universe. The dolls are not only the women, however. There are droids and there is even a Kylo Ren doll and a Chewbacca one. But, for the most part these are female figures. Much of the voicework on the series is done by the people who play those characters in the movies and on the cartoons like Star Wars Rebels.
We received a Rey figure and then two Princess Leia ones. I let Eva keep two of the figures and are including the third one in our annual Christmas is for Kids donation. Eva chose to keep the Rey figure and the Princess Leia with Wicket set. When I told her who played Wicket, Warwick Davis, and that he also played Professor Flitwick in Harry Potter movies she flipped out. Eva is a huge Harry Potter fan and Star Wars is her second favorite. Finding a bridge between the two worlds made her day. She helped me make a little video about the toys.
What I like about the toys is that they are very articulated and can stand on their own. They are much more action figure than doll in that way. Rey even has staff swinging action when you squeeze her legs together. The accessories are nice as well. Wicket has a bow and arrow as well as a spear. The bow and arrow can actually fire. Rey has a staff and backpack with space inside the pack to hold something small. Leia comes with two outfits including a speederbike helmet and blaster.
There is some good detail on each character as well down to the freckles on Rey’s face. Wicket is flocked so he is cute and fuzzy. There are even droids included in other sets like R2-D2 and BB-8. they both look excellent.
If you have never seen Forces of Destiny before you can check out the first season in this video.
This is an excellent series of shows and toys. Pick them up for your favorite fans for Christmas.
