While Hasbro didn’t talk about any of that at Toy Fair (why would they, these are only new figures 😉 ), more and more never announced Black Series action figures are revealed. And it seems the “Gaming Greats” series which is exclusive to Gamestop is becoming a real thing this year. UK toy website “Toysarama” posted a photo of an upcoming Gamestop exclusive The Force Unleashed Shadow Stormtrooper on their page (the product page still has the text for light side Revan)! The Shadow Stormtrooper follows on the heels of the Stormtrooper Commander. Could a Starkiller figure be next? But so far all the exclusives are merely repaints. Will you try to chase this figure? No word about availability yet, I would advise you to check the Gamestop website every day. Of course Hasbro could just tell us when these figures get released, but that would probably be too easy. 😉
There’s certainly something about Stormtroopers with black armor. This version here looks even cooler than the previous “Shadow Squadron” Stormtrooper we got several years ago. This will certainly by a very sought after figure! Good luck hunting! Thanks for the various alerts!
Starting tonight we are adding the new Gaming Greats The Black Series GameStop exclusives to our Visual Guides. Click below to check out the Stormtrooper Commander six-inch figure. You can also read all about this figure right here in our full review.

Check out our sneak peek of The Black Series [Phase III] 6″ Stormtrooper Commander which is a GameStop exclusive. Always a favorite character of ours, the Stormtrooper Commander action figure was a focus of highly publicized controversy if you were a collector of the 30 (77-07) line in 2008. One of the worst-handled exclusives between Hasbro and GameStop, the complaints from the collecting community and the inability to acquire the 3.75″ version of this figure caused Hasbro to re-release it. However, instead of using the fan-favorite packaging of the original release, they used the new and boring “Legacy Collection” packaging. This action upset collectors further. Why do we bring this up? Well, right now, this is the best Stormtrooper Commander that money can buy. This figure might forgive the sins of the past. Of course, we hope Hasbro gives us a super-articulated 3.75″ version using the VC140 tooling. But until they do, this is not a figure to miss. The review coming soon, but enjoy a rough gallery now! Oh, and how wonderful that “Legends” is finally getting its day in the sun.
I am really busy playing Red Dead Redemption 2 these days. Which is why I have little time for other things at the moment.
But while playing RDR2 or other, similar open world, story based single player games such as Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, Assassin’s Creed Origins, Witcher 3 or Tomb Raider (the reboot) one thought always crosses my mind: why are there no single player, open world, story focused Star Wars games? Click through for some thoughts!

If you’re a 6″ collector and you don’t own the Senate Guard/Imperial Royal Guard/Emperor’s Shadow Guard (Legends)/Elite Praetorian Guard (With Double Blade) four-pack, then you should be shamed by being publicly flogged in your local town square.

If you were fortunate enough to collect when The Legacy Collection launched, you were aware of many of the awesome products Hasbro reissued. They were so good that many of us bought them a second time. The Vader’s Secret Apprentice Evolutions set was another one of these fantastic reissues.
