Entertainment Weely has revealed Hasbro’s Star Wars Black Series European Celebration and San Diego Comic Con exclusives. Old Obi-Wan Kenobi and maskless Kylo Ren! Battle of the Bens! But all hope is not yet lost… UPDATE: We’ve received official pics and info straight from Hasbro!
Both have a few accessories between them. Obi-Wan Kenobi is set to be at SDCC and comes with a table and a little hologram Leia that actually lights up. Kylo Ren will be at the Forbidden Planet booth at the London Star Wars Celebration and comes with a base with a First Order banner, his mask, and the melted Darth Vader helmet. So hopefully, HOPEFULLY, these are both a situation where the extras and packaging are what makes them exclusive and the figures and basic accessories will come out later in retail assortments.
Help me, Hasbro, you’re my only hope.
