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.
