Star Wars Celebration Hasbro Panel Black Series Reveals



The Star Wars Celebration Hasbro Panel has revealed the following new 6-inch scale Black Series figures incoming in Spring 2023. All of the full reveals are live for pre-order as of the 1st of June 2022.


There had been a number of reveals from the Obi-Wan Kenobi Disney+ series ahead of the panel including Obi-Wan, Reva, Grand Inquisitor, Fifth Brother, and Fourth Sister. The Obi-Wan Wandering Jedi figure is now confirmed as coming with the LOLA droid. We know from boxed shots at Celebration that the Grand Inquisitor is number 9 in the Obi-Wan series - so we do have at least 4 other figures to come. Looking at side art images Reva is 3 and Fifth Brother is 4 with figure in between Obi-Wan and Reva in the sequence. Reva and Obi-Wan are part of the next Galaxy Collection Wave (Wave 8) with two other figures yo officially confirm for that wave - and we'd then expect another full wave to be confirmed for the other figures as none are listed as exclusive.


From The Mandalorian is a Season 2 Magistrate Greef Karga. There was also a look at some of the other pipeline figures already announced including Aayla Secura, and Clone Wars Darth Maul. The first figure from the new Jedi Survivor video game is the Riot Scout Trooper in the Gaming Greats line and this one should hit shelves in the Autumn this year.


The Black Series pipeline reveals were both from The Old Republic with Bastila Shan and Darth Malek.


The Stormtrooper Replica Helmet will be released again with the yellow paintwork of the Artillery Trooper from Season 2 of The Mandalorian. And the next HasLab project is confirmed as a Black Series Replica of Reva's double lightsaber from the Obi-Wan Kenobi Disney+ show. This project is now live with a £499 price tag. There will be no extras or tiers for this project.
