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.

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