In an amazingly well-timed release by Hasbro, Bestbuy announced their next Mandalorian exclusive just a day after the character’s screen debut. The latest 6″ figure to join the slow buy steadily increasing line of figures based on the hit Disney+ series, is the Jon Favreau-voiced character in which Hasbro refers to as “Heavy Infantry Mandalorian.” This character, based on Chapter 3’s credits, is referred to Paz Vizla which is very close to one of Favreau’s other famous characters from The Clone Wars series. In that series, he played a different aggressive blue-armored Mandalorian by the name of Pre Vizsla. The coincidence seems too uncanny not to be related.
But regardless of the origin of the character, we are excited to be getting this version in plastic. Thanks to Yakface we now know this figure is number “D2” which means he is the official next extry in the Deluxe line of Black Series Figures.
We have added him to our Tracking The Mandalorian page!
Hasbro has been kind enough to provide us with images of the figure which is available now at Bestbuy.com!
