Today Hasbro held their first Pulse livestream of 2021 and kicked the year off with a look at upcoming things from the Star Wars brand. 2021 kicks off the 50th anniversary of LUCASFILM, so look for packaging and special releases to commemorate the anniversary.
Star Wars: The Phantom Menace ‘vintage’ Carded Black Series
The celebration of the LUCASFILM 50th anniversary kicks off with a series of Best Buy exclusive 6″ Black Series figures from Episode I: The Phantom Menace. Qui-Gon Jinn, Mace Windu, a Battle Droid and Jar Jar Binks are all packaged on an Episode I styled card.
Star Wars: Black Series LUCASFILM 50th Anniversary ‘Vintage’ Kenner
The celebration of LUCASFILM’s 50th continues with three Black Series reissues which take the modern Hasbro figures and give them a very Kenner twist. Packaged on vintage cards, you’ll have your chance to snag a green bodysuit Greedo, a brown Obi-Wan Kenobi in vinyl cape and a cloth cape Jawa. These are all exclusively available at Amazon.
Black Series Elite Squad Trooper
The only mainline Black Series figure shown today, the Elite Squad Trooper is inspired by the upcoming ‘Star Wars: The Bad Batch’ animated trooper. He joins the rest of the ‘Bad Batch’ cast including Hunter and Crosshair
Vintage Collection Maul and Ahsoka
Two mainline Vintage Collection figures were shown today; Darth Maul from the Clone Wars and Ahsoka Tano. Both figures feature deco from the Mandalore storyline, meaning we’ve got a Darth Maul with robotic legs on the way.
Vintage Collection LUCASFILM 50th Collection
The remaining Vintage Collection figures shown today will be Walmart exclusives and are a subline celebrating LUCASFILM’s 50th. These included Paploo, Princess Leia in Endor poncho and an AT-ST driver.
