Today saw Lucasfilm reveal a plethora of merchandise for Solo: A Star Wars Story. First, we got a look at the film’s LEGO sets which provided a great look at the new look Millennium Falcon. Then we got a look at the smaller scale action figures including Chewbacca, Han, and Emilia Clarke’s Qi’ra. Finally, io9 has released a look at the movie’s Black Series figures and they’re incredible.
The Black Series figures have become a staple of Star Wars toys since 2013 when they first debuted with a mix of characters from throughout the saga films. Moving into Solo, it was unknown what kind of figures collectors could expect but fear not, we have the answer.
First off, the Lando figure sticks out based on the color scheme. Not to mention the raised eyebrow which alone makes this toy a must own. Han Solo looks about as good as we could expect which is hopefully indicative of his portrayal in the movie. Qi’ra isn’t the standout but adds to the shroud of mystery the character already has.
The big takeaway seems to be the incredible Stormtrooper, it will be known as the Imperial Range Trooper. This reveal confirms that another new Stormtrooper will be introduced which has been the case in the past few Star Wars films.
Are you going to go out and buy some of these figures? Let us know in the comments below! –Jackson Hayes
