Hasbro unveiled a new type of collectible to the Black Series line up at Toy Fair 2017 called Centerpiece. These are static mini dioramas from epic moments in Star Wars history. They come with a statue of a character and have light up electronics. They are in scale with the 6 inch Black Series figures, and are intended to work with them. They even have pegs and peg holes all over the base for you to pose out additional Black Series 6 figures.
The first one is Darth Vader busting through the door of the Tantive IV (Leia’s ship at the beginning of A New Hope). It features an explosion on the door frame which lights up along with the rim of the door itself. It’s intended to work with classic Stormtroopers. It is generic enough that you can remix it into any other Vader + Squad entering anyplace of your choice though.
