Star Wars merchandise is a staple for the fandom, particularly for those who are fans of the franchise's films and TV series. The Star Wars video games have been highly popular for decades, but few merchandising opportunities have presented themselves. Since the Disney acquisition of Lucasfilm, the most notable gaming products have been an assortment of Black Series figures based on the Battlefront titles and Jedi: Fallen Order , alongside a few tie-in books and Funko Pops!.
The Knights of the Old Republic series is among the most popular of all the Star Wars video games. There were plenty of toys and books inspired the games and era in the Lucas days, but options on that front have quieted in recent years. Funko recently announced a small selection of Pop! bobbleheads featuring Revan and Darth Malak , and a Revan Black Series elite lightsaber was recently released. But the excitement doesn't end there, as Hasbro has unveiled a few new action figures that will make fine additions to fans' collections...
Hasbro has officially revealed Black Series action figures inspired by Jedi Knight Revan and Darth Nihilus from Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic , coming exclusively to Gamestop.
Below are images of the upcoming Revan Black Series figure, available for preorder here :
The Darth Nihilus addition to the popular 6 inch figure line can also be seen below and preordered here :
WHAT THIS MEANS
These figures look phenomenal, perfectly capturing the iconic imagery of the Jedi and Sith warriors fans have come to love from the video game world. While the packaging for Revan actually identifies the figure as being pulled from Galaxy of Heroes , the character originated in KOTOR and was included in the EA mobile game with other characters from the classic series.
This is one of the first Darth Nihilus action figures to come in ages, and character looks amazing in 6 inch scale. Interestingly, both figures come in the old Black Series packaging, so these will likely be the last two of their kind before Hasbro fully transitions to more dynamic boxes. It's a good time to be a KOTOR fan if you're into collectibles, and the continued reveals of figures inspired by the games could be a sign of more neat things to come.
