New Darth Vader And Mandalorian The Black Series Pre-Orders Begin Today

Hasbro’s The Black Series has been turning characters from Star Wars into high-quality action figures for the past decade. With new Star Wars content coming to Disney Plus all the time, there’s not going to be a shortage of more characters that can be added to the collection anytime soon. There are also plenty of characters, and perhaps more importantly variations of characters, from the series’ past to be added to The Black Series too, and today a big one will be made available for the first time.



Darth Vader is coming to the collection. Yes, a character as iconic as perhaps the greatest villain in cinema history was naturally added to The Black Series a long time ago. However, the figure going up for pre-order today is based on the Sith Lord’s look from A New Hope. An important addition, and one that will likely be very popular since A New Hope was the first time a lot of fans saw Vader.

According to Collider, Darth Vader’s A New Hope action figure will be available through Hasbro Pulse and other retailers for $24.99, and pre-orders will begin at 1 p.m. EST today (October 25, 2023). Be sure to check back then if you’re reading this early as the box below will be updated with links that will take you directly to various store pages where you can pre-order the figure, and you’ll want to act fast as I’m assuming they’ll sell out pretty quickly.

Darth Vader: A New Hope Black Series Action Figure

Star Wars The Black Series Darth Vader action figure is based on the iconic villain’s look from A New Hope. The first time the world ever saw Vader, the figure comes with his iconic red lightsaber.

Darth Vader isn’t the only Star Wars character getting a new Black Series figure today. The Mandalorian is also getting a fresh figure and pre-orders will open for Din Djarin’s new addition at the same time. Again, the links aren’t live yet so can’t be included, but the Mando figure’s pre-orders will begin at the same time and should also cost $24.99. Both action figures can be pre-ordered today but neither of them will ship until summer 2024.

The Mandalorian: Mines Of Mandalore Black Series Action Figure

The Mandalorian already has a couple of Star Wars The Black Series action figures. This one has the brave bounty hunter wielding the darksaber with splashes of blue on its armor.

The new Mandalorian and Darth Vader figures follow on from some fresh Ahsoka additions that were revealed and went up for pre-order during this year’s Pulse Con. Shin Hati got her first figure after debuting in the Disney Plus show, and her master Baylan Skoll got one too. Particularly meaningful when it comes to Skoll as the actor who plays him, Ray Stevenson, passed away after filming wrapped on Ahsoka, but before the show made its debut.
