Star Wars Black Series adds four new 6-inch figures

The Star Wars Black Series has been around since 2013, and since then it’s been the focus of acclaim and renown. Now, they’ve introduced some highly anticipated figurines into their lineup! Among them are Chewbacca from Episode Four, Darth Vader from Episode Five, Jedi Luke from Episode 6 and the Sandtrooper, classic character staples from the Star Wars franchise as a whole.

With the 3.75-inch line, the Series is venturing into the territory of obscure characters, and for now, they’re sticking with the more notable figures for 6-inch renderings. But we’re stoked to watch as they inevitably expand the roster further and further. Right now, Hasbro’s work on the sculpt and likeness of these four new additions is solid. Coming strapped with accessories seen in the movie, these figurines are about to be a big hit.

Jedi Luke is one of four new additions to the Star Wars Black Series 6-inch lineup.

Star Wars’ Chewbacca Actor Fights TSA Over Lightsaber Cane

A word to the wise: Don’t mess with exceptionally-tall guys in wheelchairs traveling with walking canes — especially when those canes just so happen to resemble fully-deployed Star Wars lightsabers.

When Star Wars’ Chewbacca actor Peter Mayhew, 69 — who owns such a cosmetically weaponized cane — attempted to pass through Denver International Airport’s security checkpoint last week, Transportation Security Administration agents there apparently tried to confiscate the 7-foot, 2-inch tall actor’s, umm, cane-saber despite his explanation that he needed it to walk, reports Fort Worth, Texas NBC affiliate NBC 5.

Mayhew, who was traveling back to his home in North Texas last week, was eventually allowed to board with cane intact, but not until he’d posted about the kerfuffle to his more than 27,000 twitter followers from his account, @thewookieroars. (Tagline: “The OFFICIAL twitter of Actor, Author & the man behind the mask of CHEWBACCA! This is where The Wookiee Roars… and Tweets!”)

TSA later emailed a statement explaining its version of events: “Because of the unusual weight of the passenger’s cane, a security officer alerted a supervisor. Less than five minutes later, the passenger and cane were cleared to travel.”
