Mando Mondays #3 Hasbro Press Release

This morning Hasbro and Lucasfilm launched their third #mandomondays event and announced two different Black Series items. The first was the Remant Trooper from The Mandalorian. This figure was expected as it is both an easy repaint and was already released in The Vintage Collection line. The downside to this figure is that it is a Target exclusive which means purchasing it online will be difficult as figures typically sell out in minutes.

The Mandalorian Electronic Helmet will be popular next spring with cosplayers and bucket collectors. Hasbro has [...]
