Star Wars Black Series Gaming Greats Imperial Senate Guard

Updated: Dec 1, 2021

This week's 'Bring Home the Bounty' on starwars.com has revealed the next Gaming Greats release in the Star Wars Black Series.

The Senate Guard is a direct reuse of the existing Imperial Guards with blue and black armour. It is taken from The Force Unleashed video game. There is sadly no cloak included which would have allowed this to double up as a Prequel release, albeit without the crested helmet. The guard will wield the dual staff that originally came with the Shadow Guard.

Preorders will open on the 1st of December, with the figure exclusive to Gamestop in the US and sold via the Fan Channel route to Hasbro Pulse, and the independent stockists in the UK and elsewhere globally. The shipping estimates do vary from as early as the 31st January 2022 at Hasbro Pulse UK through to August 2022 at other independent stockists.

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed follows Darth Vader’s secret apprentice, trained to destroy Jedi, while Imperial Senate Guards impose the will of the Emperor on the galaxy

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 Black Series figure is detailed to look like the Imperial Senate Guard character from Star Wars: The Force Unleashed, featuring premium detail and multiple points of articulation.
