Star Wars Black Series : Rey and Jakku Speeder 6" scale

After an 18 month wait, Hasbro have confirmed what will be the #02 release in their Star Wars Black Series line. The original release was the monster First Order Tie Fighter at the back end of 2015. At the time Hasbro did say that this was the start of more vehicle releases not just a one off.

Hasbro have now announced via iO9 that they will be releasing this stunning Speeder in the Autumn. And if that wasn't enough, it will be packed with a brand new 6" Rey figure that boasts 28 points of articulation. It is brand new sculpt and comes with soft goods to allow Rey to ride the Speeder. She now sports her Scavenger head gear with removable mask. The satchel has also been updated and is now worn as a back pack.

The speeder is also articulated with 9 points of articulation and two opening panels. The base is clear but sculpted to look like the super heated displaced air under the speeder when it is in motion. You can use the base and articulation to tilt and pose the speeder as you wish.

The US RRP will be $60. That converts to $8 here in the UK, but I suspect the RRP for UK customers will come out somewhere around the £55 mark. As far as we are aware these is no exclusivity on this and i twill be available for all retailers to order and stock.

Rey and her Speeder will be on display at Star Wars Celebration and we will update this thread with images as they come in from Orlando.
