Close-Up of Jyn Erso Black Series 6" Figure Felicity Jones Likeness

If there was one downside to New York Comic Con 2016, it’s that it distracted me away from my Force Friday purchases and sidetracked my reviews of the first batch of Rogue One figures. But now I’m all caught up and refocused, and it’s time to begin looking at the action figures for this year’s biggest Star Wars event! You can snag the Rogue One Black Series Jyn Erso for 16 bucks shipped online–but should you? Here’s my review…

NYCC 2016 Star Wars ARTFX+ Statues Revealed Rogue One Flametrooper

While I walked away from the Marvel display at the Kotobukiya booth at New York Comic-Con 2016 feeling a teensy bit disappointed about the lack of reveals, I certainly didn’t have that problem with the NYCC 2016 Kotobukiya Star Wars display! Koto displayed a bunch of ARTFX+ statues for the first time, including K-2SO, a Flametrooper, Shoretroopers, a Rogue One Death Trooper and more…

NYCC 2016: Black Series Chirrut & Baze Figures Revealed!

NYCC 2016 Rogue One Black Series Chirrut Imwe Packaged

Taking into consideration that Hasbro just officially unveiled a ton of Star Wars Rogue One figures last week–and also that they have a Star Wars toys panel scheduled for the first day of NYCC 2016–I didn’t expect to see any new Star Wars toys at the Hasbro Pre-NYCC 2016 Media event. I was wrong in a very good way–the Rogue One Black Series 6″ Baze Malbus and Chirrut Imwe figures have now been revealed!

Star Wars 6″ Black Series Clone Troopers 4-Pack Up for Order!


Send in the Clones! I’m used to the disapproving glares I get from fellow fans when I tell them my favorite era of Star Wars is the Clone Wars, but one thing no one can deny is that there were several years where the Star Wars collecting world went clone crazy! It’s for that reason that the lack of a variety of Phase II Clone figures has been a gaping hole in the Black Series, but no longer–the EE Exclusive Star Wars 6″ Black Series Clone Troopers 4-Pack is now up for order with free shipping!

Star Wars Black Series Death Trooper Figure Review (Rogue One)

Black Series Death Trooper Review Rogue One

And so, the big day finally arrived: Force Friday 2016 and the worldwide launch of Star Wars Rogue One figures and collectibles! I staked out Walmart at midnight and then hit Target at 8AM, all in the name of getting all the Rogue One toys I had my eye on… and I did! Over the next few weeks I’ll be reviewing all of my favorite (and least favorite) new action figures, but let’s start with a review of perhaps today’s hottest release. The first shipment sold out online in under 5 minutes–do the 6″ Black Series Death Trooper figures live up to the hype?

Exclusive Hasbro Black Series Shadow Stormtrooper Helmet!


UPDATE 9/30/2016: The Amazon Exclusive Black Series Shadow Stormtrooper Helmet is now up for order!

When the first three Hasbro Star Wars Rogue One toys went up for order at the start of the month, it wasn’t the 6″ Black Series Jyn Erso figure or the U-Wing vehicle that sold out first (in fact, those are still available for pre-order at discounted prices right now). No, it was the Black Series Electronic Stormtrooper helmet that quickly sold through. So clearly there’s quite a bit of buzz surrounding this wearable prop replica helmet. And Amazon intends to capitalize–the Amazon exclusive Black Series Shadow Stormtrooper helmet has now been revealed!
