SDCC 2018 : Star Wars Black Series Reveals



Hasbro have shared the first promo images of the Star Wars figures unveiled at SDCC 2018. We start with the Black Series 6" and here we get a better look at that Imperial Patrol Trooper who will arrive in Wave 19.

Target (US) will get two new exclusives of Leia in her Bespin escape outfit from the Empire Strikes Back, and the impressive Moloch from Solo, A Star Wars Story. Moloch will be sold at a premium like the Gamorrean Guard due to his size. The US RRP was confirmed as $30

The "Battle Damaged" Captain Phasma, alongwith Zuckuss, will now be Disney Store exclusives. That will potentially (not confirmed) make them easily accessible here in UK as most Disney Store exclusives will cross the channel.


Future releases revealed are Rio Durrant from Solo and two new Rebels figures with Ezra Bridger and Chopper. Rather than a two pack these two will be released singularly. To ensure value Ezra has his saber/blaster and his stolen imperial helmet. Chopper has a number of swap out parts and a flight base.


We also learned about the Black Series Archive. The principle is to release between 4 to 8 figures a year which will be older releases from the "archive" of the Black Series. Where applicable the figure will be brought up to date with face print technology. The Archive figures will be released in an all new design blister pack to preserve the "value" of the original releases.

This all starts in January 2019 with four releases of X-Wing Luke Skywalker, Boba Fett, IG-88 and Bossk.
