In The Force Awakens, we learned Leia Organa had spent the 30 years since Return of the Jedi kicking arse and taking names as the head of the Resistance.

A brand new wave of 15cm scaled Black Series action figures were unveiled at the company’s Star Wars-themed panel yesterday, giving us new toys from across the film saga to gleefully spend cash on in the not too distant future.

Here’s The Force Awakens‘ Maz Kanata, whose diminutive stature as a toy will be made up for in the accessory department in the the form of a giant treasure chest, including Luke’s old lightsaber and other trinkets:
