Pulse Con 2021 may be over, but Hasbro had decided to continue the reveals this week in a very big way. It started on Saturday when they announcement yet another live event on October 27 at 5:00 p.m. EDT. Unlike last weekend’s festivities, this one will be exclusive to premium Hasbro Pulse members.
It’s strange that another event like this was created so soon after Pulse Con. This may have been in response to angry collectors, who learned after paying $50 for a subscription that one of its main perks (early access to exclusives) wouldn’t be made for Star Wars merchandise.

Anyway, some new stuff has already been revealed today that may or may not be part of the livestream. According to StarWars.com (via their Bring home the bounty campaign), these figures will be available for pre-order from most major retailers starting tomorrow (October 27) at 1:00 PM EDT… so either there’s still more to reveal/offer during the livestream, or someone from the Hasbro’s marketing department REALLY screwed up.
If there are new things to reveal at 5:00 p.m., it will be hard for any Star Wars item to top what we’ve seen today:
Vintage Collection Ahsoka Tano (Corvus)
Assuming this is the final product, Hasbro’s 3D facial printing absolutely nailed the likeness of Rosario Dawson. They better have them well stocked, because longtime collectors and new fans alike are sure to want that number.
Soldier of the Death Watch Vintage Collection
For people like me who wanted to build 3.75 inch scale Mandalorians (and missed the big 2010 Clone Wars release), our time has finally come. Poor weapon laying aside, this figure looks absolutely fantastic. It’s also one that most of us will want at least two of.
This next item is a long-awaited Black Series figure that’s not up for pre-order tomorrow. It is also not currently listed on StarWars.com’s Bring Home the Bounty page, although some Twitter users have shared screenshots of it appearing there.
Dark Series The Customer
Even if you don’t feel the need for an action figure of this character, it’s still worth getting one of Werner Herzog. If that’s not enough to woo you, then it also comes with its infamous camtono (which I’m sure most of you know is really just a 1970s ice cream maker).
No word on when that will be available, but we can probably assume it will be during or after tomorrow’s 5:00 p.m. livestream. Let’s just hope it’s not an exclusive.
