We received a press release from Hasbro yesterday as they have just kicked off their international convention circuit today in France. At Paris Comic Con, Hasbro revealed two new Black Series figures: Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi. Both figures are based on their Attack of the Clones appearance which is nice as the 6″ line currently only has 6 figures from Episode II:
- Padme Amidala
- Jango Fett
- Clone Trooper
- Clone Trooper Captain
- Clone Trooper Commander
- Clone Trooper Sergeant
Our friends at Fantha Tracks (all pics courtesy from them) were johnny on the spot with coverage of the event and will be covering MCM Comic Con as well so make sure to follow them!
New images were also shown of a new Vintage Collection Cara Dune figure. This begs the question as to when the star of the show will make his debut in the 3 3/4” line.
One additional reveal was made as Hasbro announced their latest kid-focused Star Wars toyline called Battle Bobblers.
We will pass on more information as we receive it and look for MCM Comic Con London coverage tomorrow!
The following is the press release info we received from Hasbro!
