It may not be THEE Force Friday, but today we are having our own little Force Friday with a look at Star Wars Black Series Wave 22 (Rise of Skywalker Wave 1). These are the main line figures released earlier in the month which feature initial figures for Episode IX The Rise of Skywalker, The Mandalorian and Jedi Fallen Order. The wave consists of Kylo Ren, Rey & D-O, Sith Trooper, First Order Trooper (with shield and energy weapon), The Mandalorian, Offworld Jawa, Cal Kestis and Second Sister Inquisitor.
All of these were also released day one in white packaging celebrating the first release. Otherwise, figures are the same. The Sith Trooper, Mandalorian, Second Sister and First Order Jet Trooper (not in this wave) also had Carbonized versions with different paint apps and a shiny glaze on them in a gold reflective box.
