Hasbro kept the new reveals rolling last Friday with the Black Series getting some added products. First, up Emperor Palpatine’s Force FX Elite Lightsaber. Retailing for around $250, this LED lightsaber comes with a color-changing blade, real metal hilt and electronic sounds!
The real metal hilt features design and deco based on Emperor Palpatine’s iconic Lightsaber featured in the Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith! Scheming, powerful, and evil to the core, Darth Sidious restored the Sith and destroyed the Jedi Order. Living a double life, Sidious was in fact Palpatine, a phantom menace. He slowly manipulated the political system of the Galactic Republic until he was named supreme chancellor — and eventually Emperor — ruling the galaxy through fear and tyranny. Fans can imagine the biggest battles and missions in the Star Wars saga with Lightsabers from The Black Series (Each sold separately. Subject to availability.)! With exquisite features and decoration, this series embodies the quality and realism that Star Wars devotees love. With the Force FX Elite Lightsaber, featuring advanced LED technology, fans can imagine Star Wars action and adventure. Requires 3X 1.5V AA / LR6 alkaline batteries, not included. Includes lightsaber, stand, and instructions.
Adding to their successful Gaming Greats line of exclusive Black Series figures, Gamestop announced their Purge Trooper with Electrostaff depicting the trooper from Jedi: Fallen Order. For some reason this figure is now listed on Ebay for 2-3 times retail price even though it’s still available for pre-order through Gamestop. It’s slated for an early October 2020 release and is priced at $24.99.
