STAR WARS Black Series Reveals a 6-Inch Rey with Speeder

STAR WARS Black Series Reveals a 6-Inch Rey with Speeder

As Hasbro learned the hard way on the last Star Wars movie, sometimes the marketing plan for the film itself doesn’t give you the best indication of who the most popular figure will be. So when the heroes of the new trilogy became toys, it was assumed Finn would be the big seller because he was the one shown holding a lightsaber in the promo art. When the movie’s big “surprise!” was that the Force-sensitive protagonist was Rey instead, her figures became quite difficult to find.

They may not know yet what or who will be most popular in The Last Jedi, but now that they know what works from the prior movie, they want to be sure everyone gets Rey in some form. To that end, they just announced a new 6-inch figure along with her Jakku scavenger speeder.

This is great news for collectors of vehicles and oversized beasts in the 6-inch Black Series, who may have feared that the gigantic TIE fighter was the last we’d see of them. Like the Speeder Bike, this proves a far more manageable-sized ride, and at a price point of $60, won’t break the bank.

Rey’s speeder features an opening engine panel, net o’ junk, and a dynamic ball-jointed stand that allows the vehicle to pose cruising straight ahead or really leaning into those curves. Rey herself features cloth lower garments, backpack, and removable face-scarf piece.

This seemed like a no-brainer from the moment I first saw it in the trailers–and indeed, a smaller version of this set (4-inch scale) with a kid-focused pop-up weapon was a hot seller two years ago. We finally got the more screen-accurate version for collectors.

Will you be scavenging the wasteland known as your local toy aisle in the Fall, when this is due to hit? Speed into comments and let’s discuss.
