9/26/2019 Triple Force Friday The Black Series The Rise Of Skywalker

The Black Series 6" Star Wars action figure line took center stage during the Triple Force Friday Global Reveal event and lots of new figures were shown. Besides showing up-coming Black Series Star Wars figures, they also re-instated that The Black Series is a line geared towards collectors where fans can hunt for different paint and packaging variations. Let's take a look.

The Black Series 6" Basic Assortment

The first eight figures are special, they will be released in the basic black/red packaging, but they will also be released in a FIRST EDITION white box. The figures are identical, but the packaging is different. First Edition Black Series 6" figures are not exclusive to a particular retail store.

What is it? Figures in the Black Series Carbonized Collection are treated with a sleek metallic finish for a premium figure which is different from the main release. The packaging is also different from the regular release and figures will start at $24.99 each. So far there are four figures included in the Carbonized Collection which are:

  • The Mandalorian (Target exclusive)
  • Second Sister Inquisitor (Gamestop exclusive)
  • Sith Trooper (Amazon exclusive)

Even though the Jet Trooper has not been announced yet officially, we expect this figure to be released in the next wave of basic Black Series 6" figures with a regular paint application.

Hasbro announced two exclusives which are released in a regular paint scheme.

  • First Order Elite Snowtrooper ($24.99 exclusive to Target)

Let's Simplify

There were a lot of new figures shown for The Black Series 6" line, here is a summary which simplifies all the information. 

  • The first 8 figures will be released in regular and white Black Series First Edition packaging
  • There are no differences between the actual figures, only the packaging is different
  • Out of those 8 figures, 3 will be available in a carbonized version where the figures have a metallic finish, different packaging, exclusive to certain stores and cost $24.99
  • Those figures are the Mandalorian (Target), Second Sister Inquisitor (Gamestop) and Sith Trooper (Amazon)
  • The Jet Trooper will also be carbonized (Walmart exclusive), but he'll be released in the second wave of figures
  • That means there are 3 different packaging versions for those figures, regular, first edition, carbonized
  • Target will have an exclusive First Order Elite Snowtrooper
  • Gamestop will have an exclusive Purge Stormtrooper
  • 4 more figures were shown for a future release: C-3PO, IG-11, Jannah, Cara Dune
  • There was no price increase, basic Black Series 6" figures still cost $19.99

We expect a few more reveals during Hasbro's panel at New York Comic Con 2019 and hopefully we'll see Finn and Poe in their new outfits! We'll be updating the Black Series 6" database once all the new figures have become available.
