Hasbro Black Series

The popular Star Wars action figure line 'The Black Series' from Hasbro has been running faithfully for around seven years now. The line, which has brought a great many new and classic Star Wars characters to plastic life, has seen some notable improvements over its lifespan. One of these major advancements was the introduction of 'Photo Real' technology that enabled Hasbro to create pitch-perfect likenesses by literally 'printing" a photo of an actor onto a figure's head.

And while there are still some glaring character omissions in the toy line, Hasbro has been chugging away to fulfill most fans' wishlists.


Today, Hasbro unveiled several new Black Series offerings, including re-releases of the entire Ghost Crew from Star Wars Rebels with improved, photo real facial features and an all new rendition of Garazeb "Zeb" Orrelios.

Additionally, these new figures mark the introduction of a newly refreshed packaging design with custom art on the side of the box.

Have a look at the new figures and packaging below along with links to pre-order each figure in the wave:

First up, we have the Mandalorian himself decked out in his Beskar armor from the latter episodes of season one of the hit Disney+ series. He comes complete with his long rifle and his blaster pistol and even appears to include his jetpack, which is hiding in the upper portion of the packaging. Pre-order here.

Coming up second, there's the Ewok, Teebo. This is the very first Ewok figure to be produced in the Black Series line and as you might expect, he comes armed with a spear, as well as a club and small dagger. Pre-order here.

You can send in the clones with this new variation on the standard, Phase II clone trooper armor. The Kamino Clone Trooper is packed in with two blasters and is ready to provide security for the cloning facilities on the Planet Kamino. Or at least ready to stand on your shelf looking cool. Pre-order here.

The Dark Lord of the Sith will have arrived in your collection with this Empire Strikes Back version of Darth Vader . This figure features an all-new sculpt, soft goods cape and his classic red-bladed lightsaber. Pre-order here.
