Earlier today, European retailer In Demand Toys posted a pre-order link (and photo gallery) for the rumored convention exclusive Cad Bane figure for Hasbro’s Star Wars Black Series.
In addition to an incredible sculpt and lots of great accessories, the Clone Wars-era bounty hunter also comes with his trusty robot sidekick, Todo 360.
I’m normally fine with waiting for a character’s standard release instead of hunting down exclusives, but the addition of Bane’s service droid means I’ll be mashing the F5 key with everyone when this set goes up for pre-order October 1 in the United States.
Band and Todo were supposed to be an exclusive set for European Star Wars conventions this summer. There still probably would have been some sold online around the world, but in extremely limited quantities. Thanks to COVID shutting everything down, however, there will likely be at least a few more available for me and my fellow Yankees to fight over before they get snapped up and posted for ridiculous prices on Ebay.
Check out the beautiful figure gallery below…and get those refresh fingers ready for October 1!
