In a surprise reveal this morning Hasbro Pulse announced a new Black Series 6" Gaming Greats figure coming exclusively to Gamestop stores through an Instagram story. The figure revealed was Wookiee Zaalbar from the Knights Of The Old Republic video game series. If you are as perplexed and unfamiliar with this character as we are here is an excerpt from Wookieepedia:
"Zaalbar (pronounced /'z?lb??/), also nicknamed "Big Z" by Mission Vao, was a male Wookiee who aided the former Sith Lord Revan in his quest throughout the galaxy to find and destroy the Star Forge superweapon. Originating from the Mid Rim Wookiee homeworld of Kashyyyk, Zaalbar was the son of Wookiee Chieftain Freyyr, but had been exiled from his homeworld. Zaalbar was considered in Wookiee culture to be a madclaw, a title of dishonor, as he had attacked his brother Chuundar with his climbing claws, violating a Wookiee code of conduct."
Besides the strange character choice, the protoype figure looks entirely unpainted with only brown plastic fur and no dirt, weathering or a wash on it. The figure will go up for pre-order on Gamestop.com on 6/15/2021 at 1pm EST.
UPDATE: The figure has an MSRP of $26.49, please have a look at the press images below.
