Star Wars Black Series 'May the 4th' Reveals, The Bad Batch (includes spoilers)



The Hasbro Star Wars team hosted a special May the 4th, Star Wars Day, live steam unveiling a number of new Star Wars products across the Vintage Collection and Black Series lines.


The Bad Batch featured heavily in the reveals, with two new 6-inch Black Series figures joining the line. These will not be general releases, and are exclusive to Walmart in the US, while in the UK and elsewhere outside North America they will be available via the Fan Channel into specialist retailers - and this includes Hasbro Pulse in the UK.


Up first is a Clone Shocktrooper who have been a staple of Star Wars Prequel properties for some time and who also feature in The Bad Batch. The figure uses the new Clone Trooper body with added commander parts including a new Pauldron piece and the usual Clone Trooper blasters.


The other reveals include a new character not yet seen in the show and confirmation of an in-development figure who features heavily in the first episode, hence the spoiler tags. Scroll down for more information,

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...
