(Daisy Ridley as Rey in 'Episode VII - The Force Awakens')

Hasbro has rectified its past errors and finally unveiled a Rey figure into its Star Wars edition of Monopoly.

The playing piece was debuted at this year's annual Toy Fair taking place in New York City.

The company suffered criticism back in January when its latest incarnation of the board game was released minus the option to play with Daisy Ridley's female lead character in JJ Abrams' Episode VII - The Force Awakens.

Instead, the four options included villain Kylo Ren, Luke Skywalker, Finn - the character played by EE BAFTA Rising Star winner John Boyega - and Darth Vader, despite that character not appearing in the film.

Hasbro assured fans it would take the comments on board and get to work adding a figure of Rey into the board game. Fortunately, they have stuck to their word.

The Verge caught a few photos of the figurine which you can see here.

Both Ridley and Boyega are set to reprise their roles for Episode VIII and IX while prequel Rogue One will be released this December.

Both sequels are currently in production.
