Today is Super Bowl 50 here in the United States, the “Big Game“, celebrating an epic battle between warriors with helmets. Well, we here at Toyark.com have helmets too. Ours have voice changers and chrome though. Hasbro released a higher end “Black Series” version of Kylo Ren‘s helmet from Star Wars The Force Awakens, designed for adults. It’s bigger, features a modulating voice amplifier, vac metal chrome and weathered paint apps. That’s all well and good but the main reason I got it is because it’s a great endcap for a Star Wars figure display. It’s perfect to position your Black Series figures around, adding height and something different to a 6 inch shelf. Let’s take a look after the break courtesy of Entertaintment Earth!

Star Wars The Force Awakens Black Series wave 4 galleries conclude today with a look at the Tie Fighter Pilot! This is a repaint of the figure that came with the 6 Inch Scale Tie Fighter, a slight one at that. The one with the vehicle was the Tie Pilot Commander, marked with red stripes on the helmet. This is the standard Tie Fighter Pilot and doesn’t have stripes. Since the new vehicle is a dual cockpit that holds two 6 inch figures, it was bound to happen. I’d say necessary. There are some differences on the figure other than the helmet stripes, so let’s take a look after the break courtesy of Dorkside Toys!

Star Wars Black Series Wave 4 galleries continue today at Toyark with the First Order Snowtrooper! This figure is the non-officer version of the TRU Exclusive Snowtrooper Officer which came with the shoulder pauldron. There is virtually no difference other than some slight paint application changes on the chest. It is however good to have access to him in non-exclusive fashion. Let’s take a closer look at the next troop builder after the break courtesy of Dorkside Toys!
