Rejoice Star Wars fans and collectors…the design team at Hasbro has finally listened to the pleas of its target demographic and delivered an action figure we actually want…Clone Captain Rex.

The much beloved veteran of The Clone Wars, having removed his command chip and avoiding the mind control influence of Emperor Palpatine’s Order 66, is finally set to make his debut and take his rightful place in our Black Series collections. The six-inch figure, was unveiled to a jubilant crowd at SDCC last weekend and sent the collectors fraternity into a delirium.

Our friends over at https://www.jedinews.co.uk/ have revealed that an exclusive edition of this highly anticipated figure, is set to debut at Hasbro’s behind-the-scenes HASCON event at the Rhode Island Convention Centre this September. This exclusive version, which will be available in a limited-edition packaging will be available on site before a traditional release in the standard Black Series format later in the year.

FIRST LOOK:

The Black Series Six-Inch Captain Rex *AT LAST*

Featuring customised armour decos with distinctive blue markings inspired by the Star Wars: The Clone Wars series, this collector grade figure includes 28 points of articulation, four blasters, premium packaging, and a removable helmet revealing this fan-favourite character’s incredibly sculpted face. This item will be an early release with exclusive packaging and accessories!

Wow…this exceptional figure looks incredible.

Kudos Hasbro.

If you’re unable to attend the HASCON spectacular, the wait for Captain Rex’s arrival will be a painful one. But, with Force Friday just around the corner and a bounty of Star Wars: The Last Jedi merchandise to sink our teeth into, we will have plenty of collectables to distract ourselves with.

Until then…
