Hasbro Shares Star Wars Black Series Details for Force Friday

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.
