Black Series

Toy Fair Gallery - Hasbro Star Wars Black Series 6-Inch Action Figures

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, February 17, 2018

3512 Uploading pictures takes a while, and there are a bunch of them.   New The Black Series action figures include: Gamorrean Guard (Target exclusive), Astromech Droids R5-D8 & R2-X2 & R2-D2 (Amazon), Hoth Leia, Commander Wolffe (Gamestop/Disney/Barnes & Noble shared), Zuckuss (Toys R Us), Skiff Guard Lando, Han Solo, Qi-Ra, Lando Calrissian (Solo), Tobias Beckett, Range Trooper, and a Mimban Stormtrooper (Walmart).  That's a lot of stuff.

The Porg 2-pack is a value-priced item.  Available very, very soon. (Very soon.)

Toy Fair Gallery - Hasbro Star Wars Black Series Prop Replicas

By Adam Pawlus — Saturday, February 17, 2018

3510 Hasbro has two new "prop" toys this time around.  One is a giant Darth Vader helmet replica, and it's huge.  It was displayed in a big round glass case, but the actual toy will come in a black cardboard box.

The other toy is The First Order's Riot Baton, used by Stormtroopers in the sequel trilogy.  It expands, flips, spins, and is generally awesome.

Presumably you'll want more pictures, and we do have some of those after the jump.

Solo: A Star Wars Story The Black Series Action Figures

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, February 14, 2018

3476 The subtext of Solo: A Star Wars Story seems to be that this is clearly Childish Gambino's year.  I don't care what the movie title is, this is the Lando movie and the very first official Donald Glover Lando Calrissian reveal is in the 6-inch action figure line.  It's awesome.   (Are you watching Atlanta?  You should watch that.)  But I digress - the figures will follow the same pattern as usual.  Will new figures slip out early thanks to the same assortment running since 2015?  It's possible!  But here's what Hasbro has to say:

Walgreens Exclusive Spirit of Obi-Wan Already on Sale?

By Adam Pawlus — Wednesday, November 15, 2017

3463 The new Star Wars  Obi-Wan Kenobi (Force Spirit) hit in September, and our pal Phil is already finding them for $14.99!  I haven't even seen these in all stores in my area yet, but they are making the rounds.   In most major cities you can throw a rock and hit a Walgreens, or two.  

If you're lucky you might also find some basic figures from the newer waves next to this Force Spirit.   Happy hunting!

NYCC 2017 - Hasbro Star Wars The Black Series 6-Inch Action Figure Reveals

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, October 6, 2017

3428 The big figures are in this season, so we're happy to see new guys and more importantly, new old guys.    There are new movie characters, there are original trilogy characters, and one of my absolute favorites is getting a big upsizing!    In today's reveals, you'll find 5 new 6-inch action figures which could be in your hands over the next year.

HasCon - Star Wars The Black Series Prototypes for the Landspeeder

By Adam Pawlus — Sunday, September 10, 2017

3416 I had some time, so I threw up some more prototype pictures of the Landspeeder.  Maybe you didn't see them, maybe you did, but here they are again with more angles.   A panel for The Black Series was rescheduled from the web times, and I caught a livestream of it.  As far as I can tell, there were no product reveals in the stream - so let's gawk over this Landspeeder some more!

HasCon - Star Wars 6-Inch The Black Series Action Figures

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, September 8, 2017

3398 Since a lot just came out, there wasn't a ton of newness in the 6-inch range at HasCon.  Star Wars fans may drool over a Landspeeder prototype, unpainted and marked up with where the paint would go later.  It's gorgeous.  You can also see Snoke plus the Force Friday offerings, after the break.

HasCon - Star Wars 40th Anniversary Collection and The Black Series Diorama-Rama

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, September 8, 2017

3387

You may have seen this from San Diego Comic-Con, but it was mobbed by people in a tight booth.  At HasCon, there was more space between things, so you don't have to worry about being crushed alive from all sides while trying to look at an action figure.  Also notable, many figures in the diorama were customized and a Luke Stormtrooper has an alternate, wet head.   I was unable to find out if it's coming out or was just a thing for the booth, but the important thing tonight is that you can see it after the jump.

Get Captain Rex Early at HasCon

By Adam Pawlus — Friday, July 28, 2017

3349 The 6-inch The Black Series Captain Rex will be available early at HasCon!  And apparently you can also buy Headmaster Arcee, a Power Bank Optimus Prime, new Magic: The Gathering cards, and some other items that may or may not be shared or to be fully announced.  We shall see!   Click through to iO9 for more.

SDCC - Reveals Continue with The Last Jedi Star Wars Figures

By Adam Pawlus — Tuesday, July 18, 2017

If you recall last year, Hasbro didn't announce its Jyn Erso exclusive until San Diego Comic-Con-goers were already on the ground.  This year, we may (because it wasn't officially announced yet) be seeing this Star Wars: The Black Series Jedi Master Luke Skywalker and Jedi In Training Rey 2-pack as seen on the Jedi Insider today.   It hasn't been officially announced at all, but it does look a lot like official Hasbro photography.  More as we have it!

SDCC14: Hasbro Preview Night Image Bank

By Mike — Wednesday, July 23, 2014

Another SDCC Preview Night has come and gone and the attendance felt like a Saturday as crowd traffic was shoulder to shoulder and the Hasbro-nites (as well as resellers) flooded HasbroToyShop's booth with fervor and frustration. This being my 15th straight Comic-Con, long lines waiting for hyped exclusives are no longer as appealing. The time was better spent shooting photos of Hasbro's booth, and while the majority of it was already previewed at Toy Fair, there were a couple of reveals including a closer look at the SDCC exclusive Jabba, the Walgreen Prototype Fett, Target's pair of Star Wars Rebels vehicles, and a few from ToysRUs and Walmart.
