We are delighted to share with fans and collectors an exclusive reveal of the next Gaming Greats Black Series figure! The 13th Battalion Trooper from Jedi: Fallen Order will be joining the 6″ line next Spring. This figure will be available for pre-order this St. Patrick’s Day, March 17th, at 1 PM EST.
Eric Franer, Hasbro’s Star Wars Brand Team Product Designer, had this to say about the figure:
- The 13th Battalion Clone Trooper has a really striking pattern across their chest, and they have a similar color palette to the 212th battalion — but we wanted to make sure the color felt unique. It was so much fun to see the flashbacks to Cal Kestis as a young padawan and interacting with Jaro Tapal’s 13th Battalion Clone Troopers. They were part of one of the most dramatic moments in the game, so I knew we had to do this trooper variant as soon as I finished the game. It is so much fun to do the various clone battalions, it’s a really fun way to build out the clone army.
This figure, of course, reuses the most recent Clone Trooper figure body with a unique paint scheme to match that found in the popular video game. As with all Gaming Greats figures in The Black Series, this figure is exclusive to Gamestop and will retail for $28. Make sure to check out social pages throughout today as there will be multiple Star Wars Fan Celebration reveals from our fellow collector sites and podcasts.
Thank you to Hasbro for letting us once again take part in the Star Wars Fan Celebration and as always for providing us with official images and press release information!
