Star Wars Black Series Captain Rex - packaging and UK availability with Forbidden Planet

The upcoming Hascon exclusive Captain Rex has been fully revealed along with the Hascon packaging, which I must admit is a thing of beauty. The packaging follows the theme started in 2015 with the First Order Stormtrooper and was then repeated in 2016 with the Jyn Erso figure. The Rex packaging is a deep electric blue with black artwork and white Star Wars Black Series logo. The outer sleeve then slides off to reveal a black inner tray with blue backdrops into which sits Rex and his accessories.

Rex is reportedly coming with additional accessories for Hascon. In the box image we can see his dual blasters and then the standard clone issue blaster and blaster-rifle that has been packed with all clone releases.

The best news for UK customers was that Forbidden Planet will be selling the Rex figure at their stand at MCM London Comic Con in October (27th to 29th). The figure will then be on sale via it's stores and website after the UK convention.

"Forbidden Planet are thrilled to announce that they will be retailing the Hasbro Convention Exclusive figure of Captain Rex from the Star Wars: Black Series range at MCM Comicon running 27th to 29th October at London's Excel Centre."

Pricing has not been confirmed as yet. Considering the packaging and exclusivity we would estimate somewhere between £29.99 and £34.99 for Rex. Keep an eye on the Forbidden Planet blog for more details, or sign up to their newsletter emails.

This Star Wars The Black Series pack, featuring one 6-inch-scale Captain Rex figure and 5 accessories is designed for ultimate collectability and display. Featuring authentic, true-to-story detail across multiple points of articulation, the Star Wars The Black Series Captain Rex figure and accessories pay tribute to the iconic leader of 501st division, serving the Republic under the command of Anakin Skywalker during the Clone Wars."
