This morning Hasbro's Star Wars team members Patrick and Eric held a live stream on the Hasbro Pulse YouTube channel where they revealed new Star Wars action figures and talked about the 50th anniversary of Lucasfilm in 2021. Below is a summary of the announcements along with pre-order links (pre-orders go live at 10am PST, so check back here).

Pre-orders @ Best Buy (all exclusive to Best Buy)
Patrick and Eric revealed several 3 3/4" Star Wars The Vintage Collection figures, inclulding Paploo, the AT-ST Driver and Princess Leia Organa (Endor). All three figures are exclusive to Walmart and will feature the Lucasfilm 50th logo on the card. No pre-order date has been announced yet and let's hope that they'll address the pre-order mess with Walmart that we had to deal with recently with the Vintage Collection Mandalorian and Incinerator Trooper.
Besides Return Of The Jedi figures the duo also revealed two figures from the Clone Wars animated TV show, Ahsoka Tano and Darth Maul! Both figures will be available as part of the mainline and are not exclusive. Check the pre-order links further up on this page. Announced but not shown were the Vintage Collection Empire Strikes Back Lando Calrissian and IG-11 from the Mandalorian.
The Black Series 6" line will see Mace Windu, Jar Jar Binks, the Battle Droid and Qui-Gon Jinn in Phantom Menace style packaging, including the foil look that we saw on the Star Wars Celebration exclusive packaging for Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Maul. Qui-Gon Jinn will be the only figure which is going to be different from the regular release, he'll have a slightly retooled head. Already announced yesterday through IGN, Hasbro will release a Jawa, Ben Kenobi and Greedo figure painted in Kenner colors. Kenobi will have a slightly adjusted hair line and a vintage-style Kenner cape and a photo real portrait. Check the pre-order links further up on this page.
Besides TPM re-releases on new cards the team announced the Black Series Bad Batch Elite Squad Trooper and showed boxed images of the Black Series Crosshair and Hunter figures. They also announced figures for the Black Series line which are currently in development, but are too early to show yet.
