STAR WARS: THE VINTAGE COLLECTION 3.75-INCH ARC TROOPER ECHO Figure

(Hasbro/Age 4 years & up/Available: Fall 2021)

Straight out of Jedi Fallen Order, this figure uses the base shell of the Black Series Snow Trooper and changes a few of the parts to make this a new figure. He seems well articulated and an easy one to army build. A pretty good figure.

Just in time for the Bad Batch’s release on Disney+, this figure updates the Black Series Clone shell, he has a well detailed pauldron (I hope it’s removable for a generic ‘Shock Trooper’ look) and a very premium ceco. A great pickup for fans of Clone Wars and the Bad Batch.

STAR WARS: THE BLACK SERIES 6-INCH VICE ADMIRAL RAMPART Figure

(Hasbro/Age 4 years & up/Available: Fall 2021)

At the time of writing, we haven’t seen admiral Rampant in the show, but he seems to be a generic Imperial officer for the most part and could probably blend in in any diorama/display. He seems fun to news around with and well-rounded figure.

(Hasbro/Age 14 years & up/Available: Fall 2021)

This is amazing! It’s so well detailed, including lights, a heads-up display, rangefinder and an adjustable head band so anyone can wear it. I love this so much and think would it would be an amazing addition to any collector’s collection.

Pipeline Update: Bad Batch Omega

Finally, we have an announcement that we will be receiving a Black Series Omega from The Bad Batch (episode one review coming soon) at some point in the near future. I’m looking forward to seeing how Hasbro chooses to release this character (whether she’ll have more accessories or be cheaper), and I’m definitely excited to see this one revealed.
