‘Star Wars: The Black Series’ 6-Inch Captain Rex Coming to HASCON

If you missed the news at San Diego Comic-Con, Captain Rex is coming to The Black Series 6-inch line! Not only that, but fans attending HASCON—a fan convention created by Hasbro—will be able to pick him up as an exclusive early release.

Inspired by the Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated series, the figure features 28 points of articulation, four blasters, premium packaging, and a removable helmet. When the helmet is removed, feast your eyes on a beautifully sculpted face that captures Temuera Morrison’s likeness.

“It’s a new mapping process that allows us to really take photo-real accuracy of a character and apply it to our figures,” said Hasbro’s Joe Ninivaggi in our interview with him. “So our sculpts have been growing leaps and bounds in terms of the quality.”

Captain Rex is the first product you’ll be getting that uses this new process, and it’ll be applied to other figures moving forward.

Priced at $24.99, he’ll come with exclusive packaging and accessories!

TWG will be attending this year’s HASCON, so stay tuned for more information as it becomes available.
