Star Wars Black Series Gaming Greats Deluxe Cal Kestis with BD-1 and Bogling

Updated: Feb 6

In 2021 we will see the Gaming Greats subline of the Star Wars Black Series move into the new Phase 4 packaging and bring us our first Deluxe release in the shape of this new Cal Kestis from Jedi : Fallen Order.

The Deluxe Cal uses the original base figure from 2019 but now includes Cal with one of his poncho's with removable hood. The set includes both a blue single lightsaber and a green double bladed lightaber as well as a Jedi Holocron. BD-1 is also included, now in a deep red colour and could we hope from the staging of the promo images that BD-1 can now connect onto the back of Cal and sit on his shoulder. And a final addition to the set is the Bogling from Bogano.

The use of the Phase 4 packaging brings us a new dimension to Gaming Greats with the side art and combining montages. It is unclear, but likely, the Gaming Greats will sit as one collection under the sky blue colour band. It is also apparent that Cal Kestis may not be the number one figure in this new collection as the side art on the box shows another figure to the left hand side, and the internet speculation is that this is a re-release of the Imperial Jump Trooper.

The following text is from the Zavvi pre-order page with pre-orders live as of the 5th Feb 2021 at most independent stockists.

In the US this is a Gamestop Exclusive and in Canada, EB Games.

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...
