Star Wars Fan First Livestream Black Series Reveals

Updated: Apr 8, 2022

April the 6th saw the Hasbro Star Wars team take to the Live Streams for another Fan First event and with this came a number of new Star Wars Black Series reveals



 

The Black Series news started with the full reveal of the Saw Gerrera figure, as announced as a pipeline figure some time ago.

The final Black Series reveal was a Premium Role Play X-Wing helmet of Trapper Wolfe (Dave Filoni) from The Mandalorian. It uses the base X-Wing helmet with updated Deco and decals and it features voice FX of Trapper Wolf from Season 1 and 2 as well as the other blaster FX sounds. This is also a Fan Channel shared release for Spring 2023.



STAR WARS:THE BLACK SERIES TRAPPER WOLF ELECTRONIC HELMET

This STAR WARS: THE BLACK SERIES roleplay item is a full-scale reproduction of Trapper Wolf’s iconic helmet, and features highly detailed deco, series-inspired design, interior padding, electronic lights and sound FX, inspired by both the attack of Ranzar Malk’s space station or the pursuit of The Mandalorian’s Razor Crest. It also includes 3 internal speakers, which create an immersive surround sound experience while synchronized LED lights inside the visor simulate sounds, as well as a communication from Carson Teva. Fans and collectors can imagine suiting up for flight as the respected leader of a squadron of X-wings with the Trapper Wolf Electronic Helmet. Available for pre order 4/7 at 1PM ET at HasbroPulse.com and additional fan channel retailers.


 

The Black Series pipeline reveals will see Grogu and a Season 1 Migs Mayfeld. We would assume Grogu is a build-up pack of sorts with one of his prams and possibly other added value like the Seeing Stone (this is speculation in terms of how they can make Grogu a standard release).

About Me : As a child of the '70s and '80s 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 licenses - 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...
