Instagram user Fettventures has posted photos (and a few videos) of a new Star Wars Black Series 3.75″ Scale – AT-ST Walker with Driver Figure. The vehicle was found at a Walmart in Houston, Texas. As with the line of 3.75″ Black Series figures, the AT-ST is likely a Walmart Exclusive. It was priced at about $60. Click the thumbnail for a larger look at the packaging.
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!
There is an very interesting survey available for the Star Wars Black Series label. Hasbro is taking the time to see what the fans and collectors of the line would like to see available, what’s important, which characters they’d like to see and more. Three of the most interesting aspects of the survey are the extensive list of characters fans can lobby for, a possible new size class and a wide assortment of role play items. 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.
If you are a Star Wars Black Series fan, please take a few moments and fill out the survey. You can do so by Clicking Here.

The Kylo Ren Force FX Lightsaber dropped last year around the launch of The Force Awakens. It donned the Black Series label along with the Voice Changing Helmet denoting it’s a step above the average cosplay offerings from Hasbro aimed at kids. I had not traveled down the Force FX route until now as my focus is usually on figures of some sort. I did finally get a hold of the Kylo saber recently to match the helmet which I thought was awesome. We’ll take a look after the break, but if you’re looking for a get up great for Halloween, or a set of gifts for Christmas, these two will excite your kid regardless of how old they may be :).
