Hasbro reached out and informed us that the single boxed version of the Black Series 6" Sith Trooper from The Rise Of Skywalker will be sold at D23 this month and that a regular release of the figure will take place before Tripple Force Friday! Besides the press release Hasbro also sent new images of the figure which gives us a look at a slight packaging change and what accessories the single boxed version will include in comparison with the first release edition SDCC exclusive. First though, let's take a look at the press release:
STAR WARS: THE BLACK SERIES 6-INCH SITH TROOPER Figure
(HASBRO/Ages 4 & up/Approx. Retail Price: $19.99/Available: Fall 2019)
Fans and collectors can imagine scenes from the STAR WARS Galaxy with this premium SITH TROOPER figure, inspired by STAR WARS: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER. The STAR WARS: THE BLACK SERIES 6-INCH SITH TROOPER action figure features premium deco and four fully articulated limbs, and comes with two SITH TROOPER-inspired accessories that makes it a great addition to any STAR WARS collection. Includes figure and 2 accessories. Available at D23 via shopDisney and in limited quantities at most major online retailers and HasbroPulse.com starting on September 4, 2019.
It's surprising that this figure will see a regular release before Triple Force Friday! Now, let's take a look at the packaging and you'll see that Hasbro changed up the age restriction on the front of the box, instead of writing it out in different languages underneath the figure's name it's now a big number. This change makes the front of the box look less cluttered, thumbs up!
We can also see that this single boxed version of the Sith Trooper will include two weapons, instead of five which were included with the San Diego Comic Con 2019 early edition release.
Well, if you are a fan of The Black Series 6" line you will be able to wet your appetite before Triple Force Friday! Happy Hunting!
