Hasbro’s design director Steve Evans has announced via his Instagram account that he will be leaving his Star Wars related position to take on a new role as Hasbro’s Creative Director of Consumer Products. Steve was a driving force in getting Star Wars items into collector’s hands over the past 5 years and his dedication and passion for the line cannot be overstated.

We wish Steve nothing but the best in all his future Hasbro endeavors.

To say I have loved every single minute working on Star Wars for the past 5 years would be a massive Death Star-sized understatement. But I have recently decided to take on a new role at Hasbro as Creative Director, Consumer Products. Which means I will now be spending my days with Optimus Prime, Applejack and other new friends. I feel it important to take a moment here to say THANK YOU to all of you. It truly has been an honor to be part of this incredible community, and I will forever look back at this chapter of my career with the utmost pride and fondness. It truly has been a childhood dream come true for me to be part of Star Wars toys, but I am excited for this new opportunity ahead! So… Until we meet again. MTFBWY 👍🏻❤️
