Hasbro’s Star Wars Black Series line of figures have been a hit with collectors of all ages. But the packaging for the 6-inch action figures inspired by the movies and TV shows of Star Wars always left something to be desired. It appears Hasbro felt an update was in order, because they’ve created an entirely new design for the box art that is much more collectible friendly, and it even shows which Star Wars title each figure comes from with a new colorway classification system.
Besides the new Star Wars Black Series packaging, there are also a handful of new figures on the way. Star Wars Rebels is completing the show’ss main character roster with the arrival of Zeb, and the previously revealed Black Series additions of Admiral Ackbar, Teebo the Ewok, The Mandalorian in Beskar armor, and more will be released in the new packaging as well. Check them all out below. Read More »

Artist Nan Lawson is best know for her Meet Cute series of artwork featuring some of our favorite couples of film and television.

Hasbro’s Black Series has been making waves for a few years now by making 6-inch action figures (and a few other collectible items) from the Star Wars saga. They’re much detailed than the smaller, standard 3 and 3/4 inch figures that have been popular since the original movie released the first merchandise following the original Star Wars, and they’re intended for more grown up collectors. But they’re about to release one of the coolest items yet, and it’s not an action figure.
Along those same lines of the detailed Black Series action figures, Hasbro has also been releasing a series of adult-sized helmets based on the costumes for Kylo Ren, Darth Vader, and Stormtroopers, as well as X-Wing pilots helmets for Poe Dameron and Luke Skywalker. Now they’re bringing the helmet the the Mandalorian bounty hunter Boba Fett to shelves, and it looks absolutely incredible. Check out the Star Wars Black Series Boba Fett helmet below. Read More »
