Thanks to the coronavirus and the spread of COVID-19, convention season is very much in question as fan events have been postponed and canceled for the next several months.
For Star Wars fans, new reveals from the Hasbro Star Wars team are always a big highlight, so it was pretty cool that the company decided to do some reveals for all the collectors who are stuck at home right now.
Using its Hasbro Pulse platform combined with the support of fan and collector media online and on Instagram, Hasbro unveiled new Star Wars action figures from its 3.75-inch Vintage Collection and 6-inch Black Series as part of a “Star Wars Fan Celebration.” With the 40th anniversary of The Empire Strikes Back approaching in May, the lineup leans heavily on the 1980 film, kicking off with a carbonized version of the OG Mando (even though he might not even be considered an actual Mandalorian at this point), Boba Fett!
Star Wars: The Black Series reveals
- Admiral Ackbar
- Carbonized Boba Fett (The Empire Strikes Back 40th Anniversary)
- Carbonized Stormtrooper (The Empire Strikes Back 40th Anniversary)
- Darth Vader (The Empire Strikes Back 40th Anniversary)
- The Mandalorian in Beskar Armor
Star Wars: The Vintage Collection reveals

Select figures are available for preorder now through Hasbro Pulse and other retailers. Additionally, Entertainment Earth is now carrying The Black Series Heavy Infantry Mandalorian that was previously issued as a Best Buy exclusive.
