Hasbro has finally listened to its fans and released a full wave of all new Star Wars Black Series 6” action figures! Ok, technically this wave includes one re-release, but I’m giving Hasbro a pass since they never should have released the Han Solo in Stormtrooper Gear figure without its matching Luke Skywalker figure. Star Wars Black Series Wave 8 includes Emperor Palpatine from Episode 6, Luke Skywalker in Stormtrooper Gear and Han Solo in Stormtrooper Gear from Episode 4, and a Clone Trooper Captain from Episode 2. Is it just me or does Palpatine in the photo above kind of look like an old school Mego figure!?!
Each Star Wars Black Series Wave 8 action figure stands 6” tall, is highly detailed and fully articulated, and comes with character specific accessories in a full color window box. While Star Wars Black Series Wave 8 is not expected to hit store shelves until April 2015, you can pre-order the entire wave for $79.99 here or the figures individually for $19.99 each here.
