Star Wars Black Series Galaxy's Edge Commander Pyre and R5-P8

While they had both been "leaked" by stores putting them out early, the next two Galaxy's Edge Star Wars Black Series figures are now officially revealed as the listings go live on Target's website in the US.


Commander Pyre is the same figure as was released in the Disney Parks 4-Pack and is based on his appearances in Star Wars Resistance. R5-P8 is Hondo Ohnaka's droid, as seen in Galaxy's Edge at the Disney Parks. He uses the existing R2 base and R4 head piece, complete with extending manipulator arms from the body section.

Both figures should be available around the 25th of October and we'd expect UK pre-orders to open shortly



A fearsome First Order Stormtrooper officer, Commander Pyre stands out from the legions of identically equipped soldiers with his black-and-gold armor. He arrives at the Colossus to represent the First Order’s growing interest in the independent fueling station.

With exquisite features and decoration, this series embodies the quality and realism that Star Wars devotees love. Star Wars The Black Series includes figures, vehicles, and roleplay items from the 40-plus-year legacy of the Star Wars Galaxy, including comics, movies, and animated series.

The 6-inch scale Black Series figure is detailed to look like the Commander Pyre character inspired by the Star Wars Galaxy’s Edge theme park, featuring premium design and detail.



R5-P8 is Hondo Ohnaka's most capable astromech and serves as an automated repair mechanic on Hondo's many starships. This sassy droid calls Hondo out on occasion, always keeping the pirate on his toes.

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...
