Star Wars Black Series Wave 9 (Ep VII 2016 Wave 5) saw the release of the SDCC 2016 Obi-Wan Kenobi exclusive in standard packaging. The figure is unchanged from what we can tell, just missing the fancy box and extra light up table accessory. Slight variance in the paint on the head is there, but that could be a figure to figure, run to run difference, not necessarily a deliberate change. Either way, it’s still a great figure and it’s good that he’s more widely available now. Instead of re-shooting, we’ve remixed our original set of pictures from SDCC 2016. We invite you to look at the originals as well here. Read on for the remixed pics courtesy of Dorksidetoys!

Today we’re going to take a look at 2 new Black Series figures at once, the AT-AT Pilot and Snowtrooper. Both make their first appearance in The Empire Strikes Back during the opening Hoth sequence. Both are solid entries into the Black Series trooper ranks and help fill out the OT line up. Let’s take a closer look after the break courtesy of Dorksidetoys!
Next up in our look at the most recent Black Series wave is Sabine Wren from Star Wars Rebels. Sabine, along with Kanan and Ahsoka last year are Black Series interpretations of the characters, a little less cartoony than their appearances on the show. All three have been fantastic entries into the line. Let’s take a look at Sabine and her colorful armor after the break courtesy of Dorksidetoys!
Darth Revan was the Fan’s Choice winner from 2015, and he is finally here! He comes from the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic video game series where he is a former Jedi who leaves the order and fights in the Mandalorian Wars, hence the Boba Fett inspired mask. It gets crazy from there, but this guy is good, evil, Mandalorian with a helmet, and has 2 lightsabers. Nuff said. The figure came out fantastic with a molded hood, soft goods of higher quality and in the right places, a sheen based paint, and standard decent Black Series articulation. It is a beauty and worth the pick up. Read on to check out 50 shots of him kicking ass!

Well, this is weird. What’s even more weird – I opened the case to start shooting Star Wars Black Series Wave 9, pulled them out and looked them over, then set aside to start shooting later that afternoon. Planned to start with Princess Leia, as she was #30, the lowest number in this wave. That was last Tuesday, the day Carrie Fisher passed away. Had to time out for a bit. I think it’s important we carry on and celebrate those that impact our lives after they’re gone whenever possible. Today we’ll try to do that in a small way with this gallery. Carrie Fisher was a key character in an influential movie that touched the lives of millions. Her work and story is a benefit to us all. This figure wasn’t planned as a tribute, but it can be, a token representation to help remember and celebrate her life. Read on to check it out.
Star Wars Rogue One is set to drop tonight and today we’re taking a look at the exclusive Star Wars Rogue One Troopers – Scarif Stormtrooper and Hovertank Pilot. The Scarif Stormtrooper is the non-commander level Scarif Trooper and is exclusive to Wal-Mart. The Hovertank Pilot is Scarif-esque, and is exclusive to Toys R Us (both in the states). Both are superb entries into the Black Series 6 Inch line up, what the best of Black Series can offer. Solid articulation, great sculpts, detailed paint, able to hold poses. Along with the Scarif Stormtrooper Squad Leader and K-2SO, Rogue One has produced some of the best Black Series figures in a while. Let’s take a look at both after the break with over 60 high res images!

Other questions concern what is important in a Black Series figure, how you would like the packaging to evolve, what fan sites you visit and more.
