Meanwhile, with Star Wars: The Last Jedi just around the corner, we talk exclusively to Disney’s Mike Stagg before we run through some of the hottest Star Wars products on offer this year and next in our comprehensive Star Wars guide.

Pre-school character, Bing continues to set new records. We catch up with the show’s creators to discover what plans they have in store for the toy space and beyond as well as chat with the Toy Association’s Steve Pasierb for a closer look at the role of licensing within the global toy industry.
