Hey Rebel Scum! It turns out in our original post for this story, there was some additional info we missed out on. We wanted to make sure you saw Chris' video reveal showing off all the design elements of the new TVC E-Wing.
Chris also answered our pilot question! He announced that Hasbro will be producing a Lt. Callahan TVC figure to occupy the cockpit, which is great news!
The original story continues below.
Welcome back, Rebel Scum. Hasbro pulled a fast one and has released a new TVC starfighter for pre-order with absolutely zero heads up whatsoever that an E-Wing was even in development! Fans of the EU and Ahsoka should be excited to see an E-Wing become a reality after being relegated to fan wishlists for so long. The included astromech KE4-N4 was shown on Lothal during Ahsoka, the design of which was taken directly from the vintage R2-D2 figure. You're going to want to jump on the pre-order pretty quick if you want to grab this one easily, the pre-order window closes in about 4 weeks.
Hasbro lifted the curtain on a brand-new starship and figure which has never appeared previously in The Vintage Collection the New Republic E-Wing and KE4-N4! Inspired by its appearance in the Ahsoka Disney+ series, the set includes the New Republic vessel and KE4-N4 astromech droid seen in the lively world of Lothal.
