It’s Force Friday! At midnight tonight, stores have the green light to finally put Star Wars products out on the shelf. There’s a ton of it, and Hasbro has shared the official pics and descriptions. We’re going to focus it on the Star Wars Black Series 6-inch offerings.
We’ve seen some product line extensions in 6-inch. In addition to single-carded figures, we’re seeing more vehicles and a completely new line that includes 6-inch scaled statues plus environments, which you can plus up by adding your own Black Series figures to the scene.
Finally, if you’re sensitive to spoilers (even minor ones), you might want to skip this article. I try to stay away from entertainment news, but the product line-ups may reveal characters and story details that might tell you too much for your taste.
May the Force be with you!

I also pitched my idea for a Bob, Agent of Hydra, figure with MODOK’s Doomsday chair for the Riders wave. Tell me that’s not a winner!
