Rey, Her Speeder are Newest Additions to Star Wars Black Series
This fall, Rey and her iconic speeder on Jakku are making a comeback as one of the newest additions to Hasbro’s Star Wars Black Series figures.
Leading up to Star Wars Celebration this weekend, Hasbro and Star Wars reveals the Black Series 6-inch Rey figure and Rey’s Speeder. If you remember the wave of new toys released for Star Wars Force Friday two years ago, then you may recall seeing a toy depicting Scavenger Rey on her speeder. This time around that toy gets a few upgrades.
The Speeder features two opening panels to see the inner detailing of the craft itself, and nine points of articulation—including the base (sculpted to make it look like the Speeder displacing dust and air as it floats) that can let you pose and tilt the vehicle.
Unlike the previous Black Series Rey figure, this one—a “100% newly sculpted” version, according to Hasbro, with 28 points of articulation—features soft fabric clothing to make it easier for her to get on her trusty speeder, a new satchel slung over her back, and removable face mask. On top of that, she also carries her trusty staff, which can be stored on the side of the Speeder as well.
Attendees at Star Wars Celebration will get to see the new toy up close and personal at the Hasbro Booth #2744. The figure itself will hit shelves sometime this fall, most likely in time for Star Wars Force Friday II, with the retail price of $59.99.
