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.

Hasbro also released press photos of two more basic assortment Black Series 6" figures, Cara Dune from the Mandalorian and Jannah from The Rise Of Skywalker. During the Triple Force Friday Global Reveal live stream a new Black Series 6" C-3PO figure was shown, and afterwards on the show floor people took pictures of an IG-11 droid.
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:
