Star Wars Black Series Gamestop Exclusive Jedi Revan and Heavy Battle Droid

Gamestop in the US have just listed two brand new Star Wars Black Series figures in a new segment on their website called "Gaming Greats".


First is the Redeemed Jedi Revan, a re-use of the Darth Revan sculpt with updated colour scheme and soft goods. Jedi Revan is drawn from the gameplay of Biowares Knights of the Old Republic, but the release is essentially drawn from EA's Galaxy of Heroes game where he is a playable character.


I love the box design and colouring for this one - it looks brilliant. Hopefully the purple repeats on the right spine.



Redeemed Jedi Knight Revan wields a purple-bladed Lightsaber while cloaked in white Jedi robes in the Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes mobile game! Kids and collectors alike can imagine the biggest battles and missions in the Star Wars saga with figures from Star Wars The Black Series! 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. (Additional products each sold separately. Subject to availability.) The 6-inch scale Gaming Greats GameStop Exclusive Jedi Knight Revan figure is detailed to look like the character from the Star Wars: Galaxy of Heroes mobile game, featuring premium detail and multiple points of articulation.

Joining Revan is a Heavy Battle Droid, another re-use of an existing figure. The Heavy Battle Droid is from Battlefront 2 and are playable in game as the "Heavy" choice when playing as the Separatist faction. Looking at the boxed picture he comes with a DLT-19 Blaster Rifle (as used with Sandtroopers and 4-LOM), the usual E-5 Battle Droid blaster and a Heavy Blaster. This final one looks very much like it has been borrowed from The First Order Stormtrooper Battle Set - which is lazy, they haven't even coloured over the white.


Modified B1 Battle Droids, Heavy Battle Droids are armed with heavy blaster rifles and shield emitters to deflect enemy fire in the Star Wars: Battlefront II videogame!
