Star Wars Black Series Bad Batch Hunter and Crosshairs, The Clone Wars

Hasbro held a Fan Friday Event on the 13th of November with news and reveals for a number of its brands.


The Star Wars Black Series Galaxy collection is already very healthy in terms of figures from The Clone Wars, and in potential preparation for their spin-off show we are welcoming the arrival of Clone Force 99, the Bad Batch, to the Black Series. The first two figures will be general release of Hunter and Crosshair. They utilise parts from the new Clone Wars body with other updated armour parts and helmets to match their on screen look from Season 7. They will feature removable helmets and sculpted heads underneath.


The Bad Batch figures of Crosshair and Hunter will be June 2021 releases.

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...
