Hasbro Star Wars 'Imperial March' Fan Stream Black Series Reveals

Updated: Mar 21

March 20th saw the Hasbro Star Wars team hold a live Fan Stream event, aligned into the new Imperial March program of releases and reveals. The event took us through a number of new releases for both the Black Series and the Vintage Collection as well as giving us some pipeline reveals to look forward to in the future.



The Star Wars Black series news kicked off with a new addition to the Holocron collection. The new Darth Maul hologram will be an exclusive release at Target in the US and via the Fan Channel retailers in the UK. Maul is modeled after his Clone Wars Season 7 appearance and the puck has been updated to more appropriate decor aligned to Maul. This is an Autumn 2024 release with pre-orders open as of the 21st of March 2024.



The focus then shifted to the newest Star Wars property, The Acolyte. Hot on the heels of the trailer was a full set of five figures from the new Disney+ series. They include four Jedi figures starting with Jedi Master Sol (02) played by Lee Jung-jae, and Dafne Keen's Padawan Jecki Lol (03),. They are joined by Yord Fandar (04) played by Charlie Bennett, and Jedi Master Indara (05) played by Carrie-Anne Moss. Each Jedi features a removable soft goods robe and a lightsaber.



The number 01 figure in The Acolyte is the mysterious Mae the Assassin, Amandla Stenberg, who also features soft goods robes and a set of four throwing knives. The Acolyte figures are also live for pre-order as of the 21st of March 2024 and are Summer releases. They will all come in the new style packaging.



There was also a Role Play reveal with Moff GIdeons armoured helmet from The Mandalorian revealed as an early 2025 release.



And we had pipeline reveals focused around the DIsney+ shows with Dedra Meero from Andor, an Imperial Super Commando from The Mandalorian, Ahsoka Tano in her white robes from Peridea, and a two pack of Captain Enoch and a Night Trooper from Ahsoka - this one will be a Walmart US Exclusive. There is also another Clones of the Republic to pack of Yoda and Clone Commander Gree. This will be executed in a real-world setting, but Gree will be based on his comic book look.

About Me : As a child of the '70s and '80s I grew up in a golden age for action figures and in my youth bought and sold myself through collections of Star Wars, G.I. Joe (Action Force), and M.A.S.K. while also dabbling in He-Man, Transformers and Ghostbusters. Roll forward and I am now reliving that Youth with the action figures of today and am a collector and fan of the larger 6-8 inch figures from my favourite movie and TV licenses - including the ones mentioned above, but also the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Doctor Who, and the Aliens. I launched The Mephitsu Archives in 2015 with a view of creating a UK-focused site or these figures where fans can pick up the latest action figure news, read reviews and get information on where to buy their figures and what is currently on store shelves. I hope I am delivering that to you guys...
