Boxed Images of The Force Awakens Black Series Trooper

If you’re a Star Wars toy collector (like me and many others), this year is going to be all kinds of nuts.  With the official The Force Awakens toys set to hit stores on September 4th, it’s only a matter of time before new toys are in our hands and on our shelves.  Today brings what looks to be our first look at one of those toys in the form of the Black Series six inch Stormtrooper (thanks to Jedi Insider for the images):

As you can see, it’s pretty much the same figure that hit eBay a couple weeks ago, but neatly packaged and likely not going to sell for up to $1000 (I wish I was joking about that).  Frankly, this looks pretty amazing, and I’m definitely digging the new packaging style for this series of figures.  As I mentioned a couple weeks ago, I fully expect this to be Hasbro’s SDCC exclusive.  

Thanks to Star Wars Celebration, we already no the new Black Series packaging will be red, and since this First Order Stormtrooper is packaged differently from that, that likely means my assumption was correct, and that this is specialized boxing for SDCC.  Hopefully this leak means we’ll get an official announcement about it this week, but we’ll have to wait and see.

In the meantime, we can still marvel at how damn sexy this thing is, and try to keep our wallets from flatlining.
