Everyone goes to conventions for a variety of reasons. Some people go solely for the panels. Others go to meet their favorite celebrities. Many more go for the convention exclusives. This year is no different at San Diego Comic-Con, where Hasbro has a great selection for fans attending the big event.
From Aphra to porgs, there’s an exclusive for everyone. Hasbro sent TWG a box filled with goodies and we can assure you that these are worth checking out.
