A new batch of Star Wars action figures were revealed today at the first ever Hasbro PulseCon.
“𝘕𝘦𝘷𝘦𝘳 𝘣𝘦 𝘢𝘧𝘳𝘢𝘪𝘥 𝘰𝘧 𝘸𝘩𝘰 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘢𝘳𝘦…”
A Rey (Dark Side Version) Black Series was officially announced, with the future coming with her now infamous double bladed red lightsaber. The figure is available for pre-order now and is scheduled to arrive in December of this year.
Jar-Jar Binks will finally get his own Black Series action figures. Equip with a staff and shield, the design comes from Binks in The Phantom Menace.
“𝘛𝘩𝘪𝘴 𝘪𝘴 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘸𝘢𝘺.”
The Armorer from Disney+’s The Mandalorian is also getting her own Black Series toy. The figure will come in special packaging which has a removable cover.
Other Black Series reveals include Boba Fett and a Clone Trooper.
A Star Wars Archives wave of figures was also revealed, with figures spanning all eras from a galaxy far, far away.
Han Solo, with his brown (not blue) winter jacket from The Empire Strikes Back, is just one of many Archive figures. Others include Luke Skywalker on Hoth, also from the Empire Strikes Back, as well as Grand Admiral Thrawn from Star Wars Rebels and Clone Commander Cody from Revenge of the Sith.
Perhaps the most unique reveals today came from the brand new holiday line of Black Series figures. With a winter style packaging and a holiday design on the figures themselves, these toys have already caught fans eyes and are sold out at many retailers. All figures have a Clone/Stormtrooper in holiday colors, and even include D-O as Rudolph, Babu Frik as an elf, and a snow covered porg. These figures will be available this holiday season.
A new wave of the increasingly popular Vintage Collection was also showcased. Anakin Skywalker, dressed in his disguise outfit from Attack of the Clones, was one of the more prominent items revealed from the Vintage Collection. Other figures include Captain Rex from The Clone Wars, the Incinerator Trooper from The Mandalorian, a TIE Figher pilot from Return of the Jedi, Queen Amidala from The Phantom Menace, and a Battle Droid, also from Episode I.
Finally, a Black Series Ahsoka Tano lightsaber was revealed. Perhaps the biggest takeaway of this item is the image of Ahsoka, which greatly resembles Rosario Dawson.
