Star Wars: The Black Series

A wave of Star Wars: The Black Series Lucasfilm 50th Anniversary Figures will showcase Qui-Gon Jinn, Mace Windu, Jar Jar Binks, and a Battle Droid in 6-inch scale on cardbacks inspired by the 3.75-inch line that was released in 1999 alongside Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. The figures are companions to the similarly packaged Darth Maul and Obi-Wan Kenobi figures offered as Star Wars Celebration Chicago exclusives in 2019.  This wave is available to preorder at Best Buy.

Amazon will serve as the exclusive retail partner for a trio of 6-inch scale figures inspired by the deco and accessories of their original 3.75-inch Kenner versions from the 1970s. Star Wars: The Black Series Lucasfilm 50th Anniversary Greedo, Ben (Obi-Wan) Kenobi, and Jawa come on vintage-inspired cardbacks.

The Black Series will also add a 6-inch Elite Squad Trooper along with Crosshair and Hunter figures inspired by the upcoming Disney+ animated series, Star Wars: The Bad Batch.
