Star Wars Black Series and Vintage Collection unveiled • AIPT

0

On Friday, Hasbro’s Star Wars team unveiled new products for its Vintage Collection and Black Series toy lines. Let’s take a look at what’s been shown and see if it’s worth adding to the shelf. We’ll start with the Vintage collection, which recently got some much-needed good news when Hasbro announced it wouldn’t be loading the line with plastic-free packaging.

Please also note that at the time of this writing, no retail prices have been posted.

Boba Fett’s Ship

Listen, I’m annoyed that Disney isn’t calling it Slave 1 too, but let’s not let that take away from a great release. For those who don’t have this ship yet, this is the perfect opportunity to get one that features enviable weathering and flight support.

Also, let’s not overlook how fantastic this Boba Fett action figure is. It would be great if Hasbro released a similar single card version at some point.

Boba Fett’s Starship (ugh) will be available for pre-order Saturday at 5:00 p.m. from most major retailers.

Cal Kestis

SDCC '22: Star Wars Black Series and Vintage Collection Revealed SDCC '22: Star Wars Black Series and Vintage Collection Revealed SDCC '22: Star Wars Black Series and Vintage Collection Revealed

We all knew this was coming (especially after yesterday’s leak), but it’s still exciting. I don’t even play games and will probably catch one. Additionally, BD-1 has an articulated head and legs.

The figure will be available for pre-order from most major retailers on Saturday at 5:00 p.m.

Luke Skywalker (The Mandalorian S2)

SDCC '22: Star Wars Black Series and Vintage Collection Revealed SDCC '22: Star Wars Black Series and Vintage Collection Revealed SDCC '22: Star Wars Black Series and Vintage Collection Revealed

I didn’t think I would buy another 3.75″ scale Luke Skywalker, but this one might break me, especially with that great portrait.

The figure will be available for pre-order from most major retailers on Saturday at 5:00 p.m.

Klatooinian Raider

SDCC '22: Star Wars Black Series and Vintage Collection Revealed SDCC '22: Star Wars Black Series and Vintage Collection Revealed

It’s about time we could buy this figure separately from the $80 AT-ST set. Background and army builder aliens are always welcome, especially when the figure is so well made.

The figure will be available for pre-order from most major retailers on Saturday at 5:00 p.m.

Pipeline reveals

  • Han Solo (eh).
  • Scout Trooper with bike (meh)
  • All new phase 2 clone troper (bleh)
  • Admiral Piett (YES!)

Now let’s take a look at the 6″ scale Black Series reveals.

KX security droid

First of all, yes, this is the new plastic-free packaging you are considering. While I appreciate wanting to help the environment, it sounds more like a cost-cutting measure that will usher in a golden era for digit exchangers.

Also, this figure is a painting that I doubt most people will want. If you do, however, it will be available for pre-order on Thursday, July 28 exclusively at GameStop.

B1 battle droid

SDCC '22: Star Wars Black Series and Vintage Collection Revealed SDCC '22: Star Wars Black Series and Vintage Collection Revealed SDCC '22: Star Wars Black Series and Vintage Collection Revealed

I can’t imagine ever wanting to build 6″ scale Battle Droids. If you were to buy just one, however, then this version of the Jedi: Survivor the video game should be a strong contender.

The figure will be available for pre-order on Thursday, July 28 exclusively at GameStop.

Grogu

SDCC '22: Star Wars Black Series and Vintage Collection Revealed SDCC '22: Star Wars Black Series and Vintage Collection Revealed SDCC '22: Star Wars Black Series and Vintage Collection Revealed

I really don’t need another Grogu on this scale, but damn if that Mythosaurus necklace and pram don’t call my name.

The figure will be available for pre-order from most major retailers on Saturday at 5:00 PM EST.

Mig Mayfeld (The Mandalorian S1)

SDCC '22: Star Wars Black Series and Vintage Collection Revealed SDCC '22: Star Wars Black Series and Vintage Collection Revealed SDCC '22: Star Wars Black Series and Vintage Collection Revealed

While we can all appreciate the cool gun accessory that comes included with this figure, is it really that hard to capture the likeness of Bill Burr’s face?

If you don’t mind owning an intricately sculpted toy that looks nothing like its on-screen counterpart, the figure will be available for pre-order from most major retailers on Saturday at 5:00 PM EST.

HK-87

SDCC '22: Star Wars Black Series and Vintage Collection Revealed

Not sure why Hasbro only released this promotional photo of the product – especially since we CANNOT SEE THE TOY INSIDE THE BOX!

Hmm…sorry. Luckily, Toyark got a decent photo of the figure as it appears in Hasbro’s SDCC slideshow. Still not enough to make me want to buy it, but a cool toy nonetheless.

The HK-87 will be available for pre-order from most major retailers on Saturday at 5:00 p.m. EST.

Luke Skywalker (The Mandalorian S2)

SDCC '22: Star Wars Black Series and Vintage Collection Revealed SDCC '22: Star Wars Black Series and Vintage Collection Revealed

Even at the current inflated Black Series price, this version of Luke might be too good to pass up.

The figure will be available for pre-order from most major retailers on Saturday at 5:00 PM EST.

Ax weaves

SDCC '22: Star Wars Black Series and Vintage Collection Revealed SDCC '22: Star Wars Black Series and Vintage Collection Revealed SDCC '22: Star Wars Black Series and Vintage Collection Revealed

This one was omitted from the SDCC presentation, but made the public announcement on StarWars.com. It’s also a great figure that’s a must if you have Bo-Katan and Koska Reeves.

No pricing or version information is available at this time.

Halloween Clone Trooper and Halloween Wookie

Not only is that a great concept, but Hasbro might actually have the numbers available in time for their respective holidays — a feat they failed spectacularly with the winter holiday wave of numbers. Unfortunately, the Wookiee (and his adorable companion Bogling) will be exclusive to Walmart.

No info on pricing or pre-orders at this time, but Hasbro may have let me know about this one when it releases.

Credit collection

Hooray for more repaints!

All of these will be available for pre-order on Saturday at 5:00 p.m., except for Ahsoka, which will be available for pre-order on July 26. Most of the collection of credits are exclusive to one store or another, making them even harder to track. down – especially the Dark Trooper, which is a Hasbro Pulse and Shop Disney exclusive, but only Hasbro Pulse tomorrow.
