Hasbro Pulse Con: Star Wars Vintage Collection & Black Series reveals

The Star Wars reveals at this year’s Hasbro Pulse Con were a bit underwhelming to say the least.

On Friday during Hasbro’s Pulse Con livestream, the Star Wars team revealed new offerings for their Vintage Collection and Black Series toylines. The reaction was a bit negative. I didn’t feel as strongly as Yakface.com did…

…but that probably has to do more with me being primarily a 3.75″ scale collector. To say that 6″ Black Series collectors got the short end of the stick would be a massive understatement. We’ll kick things off with those reveals first. Both of these figures will retail for $24.99 and care currently available for preorder with an expected arrival this winter.

Special thanks to @preterniadotcom for being on the ball as usual with live-stream screencaps to help fill the gaps when promo photos aren’t available.

Maybe I’ve gotten too spoiled with the face-printing technology, but this figure just doesn’t resemble Ray Stephens enough for me to buy it.

Shin Hati

Once again, a great-looking figure that just doesn’t look enough like the actor (Ivanna Sakhno) portraying the character.

Pipeline Reveals

  • Darth Vader (A New Hope): I’ve learned not to doubt how good it can/will be when Hasbro updates their Darth Vader figures.
  • Din Djarin (The Mandalorian Season 3): Meh.
  • Phase 1 Clone Trooper: Could be meh, but could also be a worthy update.
  • Mandalorian Night Owl: Intriguing…

Now let’s take a look at the Vintage Collection offerings. All of these will retail for $16.99 and are currently available for preorder. The solicitations have them arriving this fall or Spring 2024, but I just ordered three and they are all scheduled to hit my doorstep in early January.

Chopper (Ahsoka)

Something about the swiveling head makes the $16.99 price tag hurt a lot less. That being said, you’re going to have a hard time convincing me not to buy such a good-looking Chopper figure in this scale.

Huyang (Ahsoka)

I wish he were shinier, but otherwise, this is a must-buy.

Director Orson Krennic (Rogue One)

FINALLY!

The long-awaited figure looks just as wonderful as we’d hoped. Now everyone can put a proper (and outstanding) Orson Krennic on their toy shelves to replace that 5-POS POA one.


This next offering is also currently available for preorder (with an expected arrival this fall), but will set you back a whopping $40.

Jedi Knight Revan and HK47

As good as both these figures look (especially Revan), I am not shelling out $20 for them. At some point, Hasbro has to realize that putting two individually carded figures into one big box does not justify a $4 upcharge.

Also, as someone who really doesn’t care about packaging, I’m still confused/annoyed at the Galaxy of Heroes designation for this set.


Pipeline Reveals

  • Cal Ketsis (Imperial Officer Disguise): Nice.
  • Mandalorian Judge: Who?
  • Phase II Clone Trooper 4-pack: If these have the updated clone trooper body then I’m going to be very happy.
