StarWars.com released this video titled Star Wars: From Concept to Collectible – Hasbro Black Series: Speeder Bike. In it, the Hasbro Star Wars designers talk about the creation of the 6″ scale vehicle. It goes from the early design phase, all the way up to the retail release of the Speeder Bike and Biker Scout. Keen eyed observers may note a hint at some upcoming Star Wars Episode VII items. At the 2:15 mark of the video, you can see file listings on the PC for specific, though non-spoilery, Episode VII files. I’ve screen capped that moment, and you can see it after the jump. Check it out below.

The Black Series has gone deluxe! Larger scale figures and accessories are coming, kicking off with Wave 1′s Biker Scout and Jabba The Hutt (non SDCC version). The Biker Scout is a standard Black Series 6 inch scale figure and comes packaged with an in-scale Speeder Bike as seen in Return of the Jedi. A stand comes-with, so you can pose the figure on-bike for some dynamic shots. We’ve shot it up and done up some thoughts, check out over 35 shots courtesy of site sponsor Entertainment Earth!
Thanks to forum member TheBigMachine, we have word of some new Star Wars Black Series 6″ Figures coming next year. Dorkside Toys has posted pre-order listings for the following 6″ figures:
- Clone Commander Cody
- Princess Leia in Boushh Disguise
- Obi-Wan Kenobi
No word, at this time, of the Obi-Wan is a repack of the previously released figure or an all-new version. Perhaps it could be an Alec Guinness version! We’ll have more as it becomes available. These are listed for a first quarter 2015 release. No images are yet available.
SDCC is where Black Series launched in 2013 with the Boba Fett and Han Solo in Carbonite set. Over the last year, we’ve seen a solid line up of figures from all eras of Star Wars with more to come. To set off “year 2″ – we get another SDCC exclusive, Jabba the Hutt and his Throne Room. This is a hyped up version of the soon to be released “Deluxe” series figure.
The set comes with Jabba the Hutt, Salacious B. Crumb, a hooka pipe/stand, and a railing. On top of all that, the box itself is a cardboard diorama of Jabba’s throne room from Return of the Jedi featuring artwork to mimic his platform and even a cardboard Han Solo in Carbonite. You can swap out the cardboard Han with the one from Boba’s 2013 set and hang him there instead (see the pics inside).
We’ve done up over 55 pics of the set in high resolution for you, check them out along with our thoughts after the break!
The Star Wars Black Series Wave 4 galleries continue today with #14 Clone Trooper! Packed in the case along with Ep 3 Anakin Skywalker, Wave 4 gives us 2 solid Prequel characters. The clone trooper has the ability to be repainted over and over, and Hasbro has already started that process :). Read on to check out some high res pics and some quick thoughts, courtesy of site sponsor Entertainment Earth!
Check back later in the week for our shoot of SDCC Jabba!
Star Wars Black Series from Hasbro is a favorite here at Toyark, and Wave 4 is in hand and ready for action. This wave features 2 new figures and 2 re-packs: Ep 3 Anakin Skywalker, a Clone Trooper, a Storm Trooper and Boba Fett. Finally a re-up of figures that makes sense since one is a troop builder and one is still a bit hard to find. We are starting things off with #12 Anakin Skywalker today, read on to check out some high res pics and some quick thoughts, courtesy of site sponsor Entertainment Earth!
