UK Specialist Retailers have listed a Star Wars Black Series Darth Nihilus figure for pre-order today (9th September). The figure is part of the Gaming Greats line, which is sold via Gamestop in the US and via the Fan Channel elsewhere. This global release was timed so all retailers launched the figure at the same time with US pre orders via Gamestop also open.
Nihilus is taken from the Knights of the Old Republic Video Game and comes with his Red Lightsaber.
The base figure looks to be the the existing Darth Maul Sculpt although there have been changes made to the skirt, the arms, the hood, the addition of a soft goods cape and of course the head. The lightsaber is also a new piece as far as I can tell.
He is due for a release in Autumn 2020, with late October / early November being quoted by the UK retailers. In the US, the Gaming Greats Jedi Revan will be re-released at the same time.

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...
