Star Wars Black Series "Gaming Greats" Gamestop Exclusives (Press Release)

Hasbro have shared the press release for their new Star Wars Black Series Exclusives coming to Gamestop.


The figures will be sub-branded under the "Gaming Greats" header and features figures from Star Wars video games.


The Heavy Battle Droid is taken from Star Wars Battlefront II and is a repaint of the original Battledroid sculpt with three different weapons - a DLT-19 Blaster Rifle (as released with Sandtroopers and 4-LOM), an 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.


Jedi Revan is taken from the EA Galaxy of Heroes video game and is in his Jedi costume. He is a repainted from the original sculpt, and comes with a purple lightsaber.


The box design for the figures remains similar to the Phase 3 packaging. They do feature a cut in to the window with the "Gaming Greats" logo. The colouring is also specific - with a burgundy colour for the Battle Droid, and a very impressive purple hue for Revan.


Both figures will be released in Spring 2020. We await confirmation of these being available outside of the US - but we would expect these will be sold via the usual fan channel route.
