The second Black Series vehicle to drop during Star Wars The Last Jedi toy releases is the retail edition of Luke Skywalker and his X-34 Landspeeder. This was Luke’s ride while on Tatooine before going off planet in A New Hope. The figure and vehicle were released at San Diego Comic Con 2017 as an exclusive, which we did an in depth gallery for here. This is the same thing, with some changes, both major an minor, to the figure and vehicle. Read on to check out what’s different and see over 40 HD images courtesy of Dorkside Toys!
The second Star Wars Black Series Centerpiece features Luke Skywalker on Hoth, emerging from a downed At-At foot in the heat of battle, lightsaber drawn. It features a static Luke Skywalker statue, an At-At foot with moving “toes”, an explosion piece with LED flickering lights, and two snowy floor bases that you can use to position 6 Inch Black Series figures around. It’s a perfect fit for the previously released At-At pilot and Snowtrooper figures to work with. And as with the first Centerpiece, you can remove the statue and swap in a pilot Luke figure instead. We’ve done up 30+ images to show of what can be done courtesy of Dorkside Toys after the break!
One of the many retailer exclusives announced for Black Series Star Wars The Last Jedi was the Guardians of Evil 4 pack. This shows the evolution of the Royal Guards through the different eras. It includes the Senate Guard in blue from the Prequels, the Imperial Royal Guard in red from the OT, the Emperor’s Shadow Guard in black from Legends, and finally the Elite Praetorian Guard in red from The Last Jedi. All 4 come window boxed in the current black and red packaging style. It’s exclusive to Gamestop in the US. We have our copy in hand and have done up a set showing them off.

Star Wars Black Series vehicles are back in the mix with 02 Luke and his X-34 Speeder and 03 Rey and her Speeder. They join the 01 Tie Fighter from a couple years ago. These are much more reasonable for collectors without warehouse level display space though. Today we are taking a look at Rey and her Speeder from The Force Awakens. The set comes with Rey in scavenger gear, including a removable face wrap. The vehicle has netting, a chunk o junk to slap on the side to recreate a successful run, moving pedals and joysticks for steering, a display stand so it can hover, and multiple panels that open to reveal the inner workings of the ride. Overall it’s a really well done piece. Read on to check out some additional thoughts and over 60 HD images courtesy of Dorkside Toys!
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.

Star Wars Black Series The Last Jedi Wave 1 consisted of 2 new figures (Kylo Ren & Hera Syndulla), and 5 figures that were previously released in other forms (Ep 4 Vader x2, Stormtrooper, TLJ Luke, TLJ Rey, Thrawn). We took a look at Kylo and Hera earlier this week. You can also see our previous galleries for those figures by checking out our Star Wars Black Series Gallery Archives. Hopefully those that missed the limited release versions of these figures previously can pick them up now! We ran these previously released figures for some artistic style shots rather than showing off function again. Read on to check them all out and hit Dorkside Toys to order your sets below!
Next up in our look at Star Wars The Last Jedi Wave 1 Black Series figures is Hera Syndulla. Hera is from the Star Wars Rebels cartoon series and joins Kanan, Sabine and Ahsoka in the jump to more realistic interpretations. Sabine has a good range of Black Series articulation and comes with a single pistol that holsters on her ankle. Read on to check out some shots and additional thoughts courtesy of Dorkside Toys!
Today we are starting our looks at recent Star Wars Black Series releases. These started trickling out during Force Friday and have been filling back in at retail and online ever since. First up is our set for Star Wars The Last Jedi Kylo Ren. This is his updated look, unmasked, with a new removable hood-less cape. He comes with a fired up saber and alternate hilt. We’ve done up over 40 shots to show what he can do which you can check after the break courtesy of Dorkside Toys!
Captain Rex is in the building! The upper ranks of the clone army is filling out in Black Series with Captain Rex in his Phase 2 armor joining the ranks. This was a Hascon exclusive this past weekend, but he will be released later in standard packaging. He features a removable helmet, dual pistols and standard Clonetrooper rifle and blaster. The body has detailing and weathering to show combat wear, along with kill counts on his arms, legs and helmet. Unique parts include his shoulder pauldron, upper pouch and skirt. The face is sharply done in sculpt and paint and he’s rocking his famous platinum blonde hair. All in all it’s a really solid figure and the Hascon exclusive box is just icing on the cake. Read on to check out over 50 images of him in action!
Last up in our Star Wars Black Series SDCC galleries is a 2 Pack of Luke Skywalker and Rey from The Last Jedi. This is a kick off box set featuring figures that will be dropping in the main line later this year when the movie items release. The set features great profile artwork as seen on Black Series boxes but in grey and black instead of red and black, and has a fold out book style box for the two of them. Luke comes with his cloak and Rey has her staff, blaster and Luke’s lost lightsaber. They are pretty standard Black Series offerings so read on to check out detailed pics!
