Updated: Hasbro Reveals Star Wars Black Series SDCC Exclusives

hasbro-obi-wan-sdccMeet the two fantastic additions to the Black Series that Hasbro is offering at San Diego Comic Con and beyond.

UPDATE JULY 7, 2016:  Hasbro has confirmed with Kastor’s Korner that the Kylo Ren Black Series figure will be available at both Celebration in London, AND San Diego Comic Con:

The STAR WARS: THE BLACK SERIES 6-Inch Kylo Ren Pack will be for sale at Star Wars Celebration 2016 in the Forbidden Planet booth #S1003. It will also be available at Booth #3329 at Comic-Con International in San Diego. Following the convention, a limited number will be available on HasbroToyShop.com. Canadian fans can also purchase the figure set during Fan Expo Canada in September.

We’ve all been waiting patiently for Hasbro to announce their Comic-Con exclusive Star Wars toy, and now the wait it over… meet the deluxe edition Obi-Wan Kenobi figure:

STAR WARS: THE BLACK SERIES 6-Inch Obi-Wan Kenobi Pack

STAR WARS THE BLACK SERIES 6-Inch Obi-Wan Kenobi Pack - in pkg1

(Ages 4 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: $44.99/Available at Booth #3329 at Comic-Con International in San Diego)

Recreate the noble journey of the great Jedi Master with the highly collectible Obi-Wan Kenobi Pack. Featuring authentic, movie-accurate detail, this elite 6-inch scale Obi-Wan Kenobi figure comes equipped with Jedi robe, 2 lightsabers, an electronic light-up table, and Princess Leia hologram delivering a vital message. Includes 1 figure with multiple points of articulation and 5 accessories. The STAR WARS: THE BLACK SERIES 6-Inch Obi-Wan Kenobi Pack will be for sale at San Diego Comic-Con 2016. Following the convention, a limited number will be available on HasbroToyShop.com. Canadian fans can also purchase the figure set during Fan Expo Canada in September.

But that’s not all– along with Obi-Wan, Hasbro also unveiled this year’s Celebration exclusive… and unmasked Kylo Ren, complete with a nice looking portrait of Adam Driver, a First Order flag backdrop, and– coolest of all– the charred helmet of Darth Vader!

STAR WARS: THE BLACK SERIES 6-Inch Kylo Ren Pack

STAR WARS THE BLACK SERIES 6-Inch Kylo Ren Pack - oop2

(Ages 4 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: $34.99/Available in the Forbidden Planet Booth #S1003 at Star Wars Celebration 2016)

Reveal the power of the dark side with this collectible 6-inch scale figure of Kylo Ren without his mask! Fans can relive the First Order commander’s most pivotal moments from STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS with accessories such as Darth Vader’s helmet and a First Order banner and stand. THE BLACK SERIES Pack features a highly articulated and exceptionally detailed Kylo Ren BLACK SERIES figure, as well as the villain’s iconic lightsaber, lightsaber hilt, and helmet. Includes 1 figure and 6 accessories. The STAR WARS: THE BLACK SERIES 6-Inch Kylo Ren Pack will be for sale at Star Wars Celebration 2016 in the Forbidden Planet booth #S1003.

I have a hunch we’ll see both Obi-Wan and Ben Solo as standard releases somewhere down the line in the Black Series, although they won’t include the extra trappings packed with the Con versions.  And, as much as I think we’d all agree a Kenobi with a little hologram Leia is better than one without, we can all of us probably survive if we just got the wizened Jedi.

But that’s all putting the cart WAY before the horse… in the meantime, unmasked Kylo will make his debut at the Forbidden Planet booth at Celebration in London (ouch).  Obi-Wan will make his debut at SDCC, and a small supply will also be available after the show at HasbroToyShop.com.
