Unlike the previous Star Wars: Retro Collection line from Hasbro, these Black Series figures are not meant to be 1: 1 reproductions of the original Kenner figures. They feature the larger and more detailed sculptures of the Black Series line, but paint decals and items of textile products like Obi-Wan’s vinyl cape are clear callbacks to the Kenner era. The packaging will also recall the original versions of Kenner.

Hasbro has confirmed that there will be more than these three characters in the 50th anniversary line, with future releases potentially focusing on films other than A New Hope. Hasbro to host Fan First Friday livestream on January 29 showing these numbers and other upcoming releases in the Lucasfilm 50th Anniversary promotion.

All three figures are priced at $ 19.99 and will be sold exclusively through Amazon. You can pre-order the figurines at the links below.

If you’ve ever wondered what the heroes and villains of The Mandalorian might look like when they get the full Kenner treatment, Hasbro has you covered, too. The company recently teased a series of The Mandalorian: Retro Collection figures, which feature nostalgic interpretations of characters like Din Djarin and Cara Dune as if they actually existed in the ’70s.

There are other versions of Hasbro Star Wars to look forward to in 2021, including a life-size Darksaber accessory and a long-awaited Bo-Katan Black Series figure.
