Star War Black Series: New ‘Andor’ figures revealed

If you need more Imperial officers for your Star Wars toy collection, the new Andor wave has you covered.

Ahead of its release later this month, Hasbro has revealed four new figures inspired by Andor. The good news is that all four of them look really nice. The bad news is that they’re all exclusives…and two are from Walmart.

If you’re willing to pay the inflated price ($27.99) and roll the dice on your order getting canceled, let’s take a look at what’s being offered.

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

Cassian Andor (Aldhani Mission)

Maybe it’s just the promo photos, but this is the second Andor figure in a row Hasbro’s shown us that looks like it was slathered in Vaseline. That critique aside, it still doesn’t look great. Add in a paltry accessory count of one and the figure definitely isn’t worth Hasbro’s doubly inflated exclusive price tag.

If you’ve got some money burning a hole in your wallet, however, it will be available for preorder from Walmart on October 6 at 10:00 AM (allegedly) as part of their annual Collector Con event. The figure is expected to arrive this fall.

This is a great design, but $27.99 is far too much to pay for a simple repaint with an added holster. If you still want one, the figure will be available for preorder from Target on September 23 at 9:00 AM (allegedly). It’s expected to arrive this fall.

Now we’re getting somewhere.

Star Wars collectors (including myself) are always looking for generic Imperial officers to fill out our displays. This figure definitely fits the bill. It may be a simple repaint/repurpose of the 2018 Mudtrooper, but at least it’s based on a really cool design that hasn’t been done to death.

The figure will be available for preorder from Target on September 23 at 9:00 AM. It’s expected to arrive this fall.

Imperial Officer (Dark Times)

$27.99 is still too much, but this figure looks fantastic — especially the cape. If you’re like me and have pared your collecting down to occasional selections from various waves, this is the one to get.

The figure will be available for preorder from Walmart on October 6 at 10:00 AM (allegedly) as part of their annual Collector Con event. It is expected to arrive this fall.
