With Episode 9 due out in theaters in late December, it’s no wonder that Hasbro was holding back on showing off new figures in the Star Wars Black Series – we’ll be seeing a lot of movie figures as we approach shelf dates in the Fall. But that didn’t stop them from dropping a few surprises on us.Continue reading “Toy Fair 2019: Hasbro Star Wars Black Series and More”
We previously swiped (the low res) shots from YodasNews.com of what we were calling “wave 3” of the 6-inch Star Wars Black Series figures. Hasbro has shown us some love and shared what we’re going to start calling “2014 wave 1” of the series – that’s the official word from Hasbro.
This wave still includes the regular Stormtrooper, Jedi Master Obi Wan Kenobi, and Bespin Luke Skywalker. In hi-res, it’s a little harder to overlook the sad-face paint job on the eyes. Obi Wan and Luke are sad! I hope that as this line continues to succeed that we see some increased paint apps there.
Speaking of Star Wars, news site YodasNews.com has hi-res images of Star Wars Black Series wave 3. We had seen some of this previously, when Hasbro added Obi Wan Kenobi to their booth at SDCC, and after Star Wars Celebration Europe for the Stormtrooper and Luke. But this gives us a better look at the Bespin Luke Skywalker that will hit shelves – the earlier shot had its head tilted down and looked like an early shot of the paint master. Hasbro also released an official pic of Anakin Skywalker for their NYCC pre-party.
I am really enjoying this line so far – my one desire would be more paint apps, particularly with the eyes – would like to see less of the G.I. JOE eyes in this line.
