Hasbro Black Series - update for Jyn Erso, unmasked Kylo Ren + new images

Day two of Star Wars Celebration London, and the Hasbro/FP.com display had been "re-arranged". The noticeable absence was the Black Series A New Hope Princess Leia, no doubt removed overnight due to the press she had been getting in day 1. Remember that Hasbro have made comments in regards the figure...

“the Leia figure shown at SWCE is a pre-production ‘first shot’ and is not final deco. We are addressing the delicacies of lips, eyes and eyebrows. The hood is also not stitched as it will be in final product.” - Steve Evans, Hasbro

Now remember my speculation yesterday of a basic unmasked Kylo being released. Well that is exactly what took the Leia spot in the cabinet. The loose figure was out on Day 1, and Day 2 he was there in his box marked as #29 in the range.

Of course also added was the first Rogue One Black Series figure, Sergeant Jyn Erso. She was on display as both loose and boxed, and the most interesting part was her numbering as #22. This effectively see's her leapfrogging all the other figures to the next numerical release after #21 Farmboy Luke.

#22 Sergeant Jyn Erso

#26 Unmasked Kylo Ren

#29 C-3PO, Resistance Base

#30 Princess Leia, A New Hope

And taking up slots #23. #24, #25, #27, #28

Darth Revan

Snow Trooper

AT-AT Driver

Sabine Wren

That leaves a spare spot by my reckoning (Obi Wan?)

It therefore looks like we will see the new wave as part of a Rogue One Force Friday in he early autumn (September) spearheaded by a Jyn Erso and containing the other figures we've seen - probably across 2 waves initially with other's from Rogue one slotted in. A Shadow Trooper feels a must from Rogue One, as does the Sand Trooper with retooled back pack (yes, it's changed - wait for our Rogue One gallery early next week).
