A nice little surprise showed up today courtesy of Hasbro! They’ve sent out a promotional box for Star Wars The Rise of Skywalker featuring a selection of products from their various lines. Included are items from The Vintage Collection, The Black Series, Galaxy of Adventures, and Role Play. We’ve run the box for some pics since the box itself is pretty cool. Our Black Series gallery went up yesterday, so the SWBS6 figs in here are featured in that. And to cap it off we’ve included a couple play around shots of the Galaxy figures since they are a new format. I thought some of them looked fun to play around with, good desk mates that don’t require a lot of attention. Oh and good for the kids too I suppose :). Read on to check it all out. These items are out in the wild now at most major retailers – online and locally! Thanks to Hasbro for sending it through!

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.
We’ve run all 8 through the motions today courtesy of Dorkside Toys. Read on to check out over 160 images and some quick thoughts after the break!
And now, young Skywalker… you, will, die. The Rise of Skywalker is almost here, and we all know the Emperor will be back in some form or fashion. Getting ready for the Return of the Sith is Star Wars Black Series with something most of us have wanted since it’s original drop, Emperor Palpatine with this Throne! That can sit down. And Hasbro has delivered! On top of a proper throne, soft goods and legs that can functionally pop a squat – we get 3 new heads with Photo Real digital paint and a set of force lighting hands. Both of those angles are well done. The heads have some weird color blocking when viewed up close, but from a distance it mimics the weird skin texture the Emperor had in the movie. No complaints on the lightning hands, they are perfectly done. All in all it’s a great release for Black Series, and worthy of an upgrade if you have the original release. Two Royal Guards and Lord Vader to the side is a great centerpiece display on the shelves.

The Mandalorian, the first Star Wars™ live action series, from executive producers and writers Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni premiers on Disney+, the new streaming service, on November 12, 2019.
The Mandalorian™ is wrapped in mystery. No one is quite sure who this well-equipped stranger is. The Mandalorian™ is battle-worn and tight lipped, a formidable bounty hunter in an increasingly dangerous galaxy. His body is shielded by beskar armor and his face is hidden behind the iconic T-Visor.
Utilizing the original molds that were used to make the screen-used prop, EFX’s engineers, model-makers and artists have produced a faithful recreation of this new prop replica helmet. The paint detail on the helmet is hand painted to be screen accurate to the original helmet.
– Now available for pre-order.
– $699 (Plus shipping/Handling and TX sales tax, if applicable. Does not include any duties, taxes or fees for international customers)
– As seen in The Mandalorian on Disney+
– Limited to 750 pieces worldwide
– Anticipated to ship before Holiday 2019
– Master patterns cast from the molds used to make the screen-used helmets
– Full Scale 1:1 Prop Replica
– Screen accurate paint and hand painted weathering utilizing actual paint samples from the original prop
– Numbered Metal Plaque
– EFX Display Base
– Prop Story/Certificate of Authenticity
– NOTE: Due to the unique characteristics of this metallic paint, like the screen-used helmet, the color of the helmet may look different under different lighting conditions.
– THIS HELMET IS A COLLECTIBLE FOR DISPLAY ONLY. THIS IS NOT A TOY AND IS INTENDED FOR ADULTS ONLY. NOT FOR CHILDREN UNDER 14 YEARS OF AGE.
