Hasbro's six-inch-scale Star Wars line, The Black Series, continues to be ever-popular with fans and die-hard collectors alike. The line is on its ninth year of production and shows no signs of slowing down, especially with the myriad of upcoming live-action and animated Star Wars content coming this way to base figures upon. It's actually been a good while since Hasbro has shown off a full wave of Black Series figures with the previous mainline wave being unveiled back in October 2021.

Also popular with fans is the smaller-sized Vintage Collection, which emulates the iconic packaging design from Star Wars figures of yesteryear. Figures from The Vintage Collection clock in at about three-and-three-quarters inches, give or take, which longtime fans will know was the scale in which the very first Star Wars figures were released back in 1977. But although the scale and packaging are meant as homages to the old ways, the figures themselves feature brand-new sculpting and updated poseability.

During a recent "Fan First Wednesday" livestream on their social media channels, Hasbro was able to reveal a slew of new figures in both the Vintage Collection and Black Series scales. Check them out below!

These Black Series and Vintage Collection figures pull from a large swath of Star Wars media, from The Clone Wars to various video games, so there's surely a little something for everyone.

It's important to note that while the official word from Hasbro is that some of these figures won't be ready to ship until 2023, this is merely an insurance measure in case things are held up somewhere along the supply chain. Fans can likely expect the figures much sooner.
