It was the final Mando Monday this week with no new action figure news, but two brilliant new Black Series Role Play items from Star Wars.
The Black Series Force FX Darksaber will feature LED light up functions and sound effects. The light up functions feature a "progressive ignition", molten tip effect, light up hilt and light up function in the blade edge to recreate the Darksabers unique design. Sounds include power up and power down as well as motion sensor controlled hum and saber clash effects.
The hilt is metal and can be displayed in the sleek display stand provided in the box - with or without the blade.
The Darksaber will be a Summer 2021 release with a £249.99 UK RRP. Preorders are now open including at our affiliate partners of Zavvi and across your independent stockists of choice.

About Me : As a child of the 70's and 80's 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 licences - 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...
