After Wednesday’s fantastic episode of Obi Wan KenobiStarWars.com has unveiled new deals for Hasbro’s Black Series and Vintage Collection toylines.

Let’s take a look at the Vintage Collection figure first since most people have seen it before.


Listen to the latest episode of our Star Wars podcast, Talkin’ Tauntauns!

Darth Vader (Dark Times)

Thanks to someone who spotted this figure in a store in New Zealand, Yakface.com was able to report on its existence over a week ago. A few days later, Instagram user justfigsnaps and Jedi Temple Archives provided a nice in-hand gallery of the toy.

The general consensus (with which I agree) is that this may be the best 3.75 inch Darth Vader figure ever produced. In addition to the beautiful carving and painting, it comes with alternate hands – something we don’t see enough of in the Vintage Collection line these days. Even someone like me who has more than enough Vaders on their shelf is strongly tempted to buy one.

Darth Vader (The Dark Times) will retail for $14.99 with an expected arrival this fall. It will be available from most major retailers for pre-order Thursday at 1:00 p.m. EDT.


Now let’s take a look at the Black Series offerings.

Even if you’re not a fan of Obi Wan Kenobi series (which is hard to understand after this week’s episode), this one is still worth picking up – especially if you’re a fan of the Jedi: Fallen Order video game. Unfortunately, it’s a Walmart exclusive, which means a higher retail price ($27.99) and even higher blood pressure when you can’t find it.

If you’re feeling lucky, pre-orders for the figure will open Thursday at 1:00 p.m. If/when pre-orders are canceled, you can try looking for the figure in person this fall when it’s scheduled to hit shelves.

UPDATE: The pre-order release of this article has been postponed to July 21 at 10:00 a.m.

You might not remember this droid from its brief appearance in Obi Wan Kenobiis the second episode. You may also have mistakenly assumed it was 4-LOM. Either way, it makes for a cool silhouette.

Unfortunately, 1-JAC is also a Walmart exclusive that carries an inflated retail price of $27.99. The figure will be available for pre-order (allegedly) Thursday at 1:00 p.m. EDT with an expected arrival this fall.

Tala (imperial officer)

A great character that is truly worthy of shelf space. Unfortunately, digital renders won’t cut it when trying to decide whether to buy a human-based figure, especially when it comes to portraiture.

If you want to roll the dice, however, Tala will be available for pre-order tomorrow at 1:00 p.m. EDT from most major retailers. The figure will retail for $24.99 and is expected to arrive in Spring 2023.
