“We wanted to commemorate this event in a very special way,” said Executive Director of Sales, Mike Schimmel, in a statement. “We had a great concept for the cover, and when we brought it to Hasbro’s Star Wars team, they enthusiastically jumped at the chance to recreate the cover with real action figures.
“We thank Hasbro for working with us to create this amazing variant cover, which is Diamond’s first-ever Toy Fair-exclusive comic, and one that we’re sure will be treasured by every Star Wars fan who is fortunate enough to obtain this limited edition.”
