Hasbro's newest line of toys is a bit like Skylanders -- except it's not a video game.
The Star Wars Force Link playset uses a wristband to make this line of Star Wars toys speak.
The wristband uses an NFC system, which is similar to how Apple Pay works on the iPhone, to recognize the toys.
These 3.75-inch figures react when placed near the wristband. They're being sold separately for $8 (roughly £5 or AU$10). You can also shake the characters for more sounds.
The Force Link Rathtar set is $20, which roughly converts to £15 or AU$25.
The big $200 BB-8 playset (about £155 or AU$255) unfolds into a Mega Star Destroyer that includes a Snoke figurine.
Two-figure packs in the Force Link line sell for $15. That's roughly £10 or AU$15.
The First Order Stormtroopers in the galley of the BB-8 playset will welcome characters such as Kylo Ren but they won't be happy to see Luke Skywalker.
The wristband knows that Kylo Ren is in the galley of the playset and plays the corresponding recording.
Fan favorites such as Chewbacca are part of the Force Link line.
The BB-8 playset includes a trash compactor area -- just in case you feel like throwing a character in there to see what happens.
Kylo Ren's TIE Silencer ship is $50 -- roughly £40 or AU$65.
The Resistance Ski Speeder ship comes with a Poe Dameron figure for $40. That's about £30 or AU$50.
Resistance A-Wing Fighter with Resistance Pilot Tallie costs $30, converting to approximately £25 or AU$40.
