Hasbro PulseCon: New Star Wars Black Series and Vintage Collection reveals

The Armorer makes her action figure debut in the Star Wars: Black Series line.

While the Haslab Razorcrest is definitely the biggest Star Wars toy news of the day, Hasbro’s first every PulseCon still had plenty of other reveals for its Vintage Collection and Black Series lines.

Let’s take a look at what’s going to be busting our budget to close out 2020, shall we?

Listen to the latest episode of our Star Wars podcast, Talkin' Tauntauns!

The Vintage Collection

Star Wars Vintage Collection (Hasbro)

That’s what I’m talking about! Look at that flame effect! I think we’ll all be adding at least one of these to our toy shelves.

The figure will retail for $12.99. It is also a Walmart exclusive and available for preorder now with an expected arrival in December. This is normally the time when I make a snarky comment about how Walmart exclusives = Ebay exclusives, but I was actually able to order one without feeling like I had to rush through before it disappeared from my cart.

Star Wars Vintage Collection (Habro)

Not a figure I’ve been wanting, but I know plenty who have, especially with a Photo Real update.

The figure will retail for $12.99. It is available for preorder now with an expected arrival in April of 2021.

Didn’t think I needed this one, but that Photo Real deco might have it being added to my cart.

The figure will retail for $12.99. It is available for preorder now with an expected arrival in April of 2021.

The Phantom Menace Battle Droid

I’ve got all the battle droids I need, but this is a nice looking update for folks who still need some.

The figure will retail for $12.99. It is available for preorder now with an expected arrival in April of 2021.

Return of the Jedi Tie Fight Pilot

Odd choice for a repack, especially for one that is in need of an update. Ah well.

The figure will retail for $12.99. It is available for preorder now with an expected arrival in April of 2021.

Captain Rex

Star Wars Vintage Collection (Hasbro)

If the last repack choice was “odd,” then this one is downright bad. The figure wasn’t great the first time around, but it’s even more frustrating when you realize this would have been the perfect time to release canceled Legacy version of the figure.

But I digress…the figure will retail for $12.99. It is available for preorder now (currently sold out because Rex is still awesome even in subpar figure form) with an expected arrival in April of 2021.

Star Wars Black Series (Hasbro)

You better believe I preordered this one already. There will be another figure of the figure in the mainline, but this exclusive one comes with some must-have accessories.

The figure will retail for $29.99 and is a Hasbro Pulse exclusive. It is available for preorder now (but currently sold out) with an expected arrival next month.

The Phantom Menace Jar Jar Binks

I don’t care how cliche hating Jar Jar is or how objectively beautiful that figure looks. I’m still not buying it, especially at a $29.99 price point.

If you’re interesting in owning one, however, the figure is available for preorder now (but currently sold out) with an expected arrival in March 2021.

The Mandalorian Incinerator Trooper

It’s rare that I like a Black Series version of a character better than its Vintage Collection counterpart, yet here we are. I tried to preorder this one, as well, but some of you jerks already beat me to it.

The figure will retail for $19.99 is will hopefully be available for preorder again soon. It is expected to arrive in December.

The Rise of Skywalker Dark Side Rey

I’ll wait to see a physical prototype before making a final decision on this one. Definitely looks cool, though.

The figure will retail for $19.99. It is available for preorder now (currently sold out) with an expected arrival of February 2021.

Return of the Jedi Boba Fett

I’m still happy with the one I got, but those new accessories and the improved articulation make for a nice upgrade.

The figure will retail for $29.99. It is available for preorder now (currently sold out) with an expected arrival in June 2021. Maybe I’ll finally break and get this one by then.

Phase 1 Clone Trooper

Happy with the one I got, but that is a seriously nice looking upgrade.

The figure will retail for $19.99. It is available for preorder now (currently sold out) with an expected arrival in December.

Black Series Holiday Collection

I really should hate these, but I can’t help myself. Maybe it’s a bit of early Christmas spirit due to the weather cooling off a bit. Whatever the case, I’ll probably get at least one. Also, those holiday-themed Porgs they come with are adorable. The Babu Frik that comes with the First Order trooper might be a more enticing buy than the main figure.

All the figures are exclusive to various retailers (preorder links are listed/available next each title except for the Sith Trooper) and will retail for $24.99. As of this time, Target is the only one sold out (of course). I’m not sure what’s going on with Best Buy, but I’m sure the Sith Trooper and Babu will be up for sale soon.

Every figure is expected to arrive before December, which definitely needs to happen. Can you imagine how much it would suck to order one of these for the holidays only to have it delayed until 2021?

Anyway, let’s take a look at this festively unique collection.

Black Series Archive Collection

Some slightly updated versions of highly sought after Black Series figures will be available in 2021. I’m happy with my Thrawn, but Cody might have to be added to the collection.

Roleplay

We’ll finish things off with one of the best lightsabers Hasbro has every produced. In addition to having its own stand, it can also switch between three different colors (green, blue, and yellow) that Ahsoka wielded.
