Star Wars Fans are Loving the Tico Sisters Action Figures for ‘The Last Jedi’
Disney and Lucasfilm have finally released the Tico Sisters action figures for “Star Wars: The Last Jedi”, and many Asian American fans were quite pleased with the studios’ toys.
The studios released several products from Hasbro involving the two characters, Rose and Paige Tico, who are played by Vietnamese-American actress Kelly Marie Tran and Vietnamese actress Veronica Ngo, respectively, during its recent Force Friday II event just after midnight on September 1.
It is important for young female Asian and Asian American fans of the franchise to see themselves represented in the movie as part of the resistance that will help save the universe, the Mary Sue noted.
The Force Friday event also really means a lot and shows positive impact whenever a big company releases new merchandise that represent a community.

Many people might not know this, but despite our large and loyal following which we are immensely grateful for, NextShark is still a small bootstrapped startup that runs on no outside funding or loans.
Everything you see today is built on the backs of warriors who have sacrificed opportunities to help give Asians all over the world a bigger voice.
However, we still face many trials and tribulations in our industry, from figuring out the most sustainable business model for independent media companies to facing the current COVID-19 pandemic decimating advertising revenues across the board.
We hope you consider making a contribution so we can continue to provide you with quality content that informs, educates and inspires the Asian community.
Even a $1 contribution goes a long way. Thank you for everyone’s support. We love you all and can’t appreciate you guys enough.
