Star Wars Rebels Characters Unveiled At New York Toy Fair
Information on the upcoming animated series Star Wars Rebels has been coming out in spits and spots over the last few weeks, but this year's New York Toy Fair has given us a look at the biggest batch of new Star Wars characters in years. Spotted by Newsarama, the epic collection of character figures showcased characters ranging from new Jedi and Mandalorians to a chap named Zeb who is in fact modelled on Ralph McQuarrie's original Chewbacca. Zeb Orellios is pictured up top and, as you can see, there's remarkably less hair on McQuarrie's original design than the Wookie that made it into George Lucas's big screen vision. Also included were figures for previously unveiled characters like the Sith badass 'Inquisitor' and the perky little droid 'Chopper'.
Star Wars Rebels premieres on Disney's XD channel this fall.
