It’s Hasbro Pulse Con weekend and there have been plenty of revelations from the various IPs the toy giant works with. One of the reveals was a new character in the Star Wars Vintage Collection: Hunter from Star Wars The Bad Batch.
The character doesn’t have a release date as of this writing, but the 3.75-inch toy is modeled after Hunter’s appearance in the Disney+ series. GameSpot took a closer look at the figure and the packaging. It wouldn’t be a Vintage Collection figure without that classic Kenner-inspired box art, right? Check out images of the upcoming collectible below.
With multiple points of articulation, Hunter also comes with his blaster and helmet. Pricing hasn’t been announced, but if you look at other individual figures in the Vintage Collection series, they’re all $15-$17 each, so you can expect Hunter to cost around that much.
A spin-off of the animated series The Clone Wars, The Bad Batch follows Clone Force 99, clone troopers with genetic mutations, and each member of the group has their own specialty. Set immediately after the events of Revenge of the Sith, the series explores an era of Star Wars in which the Republic has collapsed and is being replaced by the Empire. Dee Bradley Baker – along with the rest of the Bad Batch since they are clones – approaches Hunter as the leader of the group.
Season 1 of Bad Batch was a hit for the streaming service, so much so that it was renewed for a season, arriving on Disney+ on January 4th.
Currently on Disney+, new episodes of Rogue One prequel Andor land on the service on Wednesday. In the GameSpot review of Andor Episodes 1-4, Mat Elfring said, “There’s a lot of potential for the season as a whole, but it’s a bit difficult to figure out how this particular story is going to end, even if we ultimately know how it will will end. The opening episodes don’t hold the audience’s attention particularly well, but there’s a lot to enjoy here. The cast is solid and the sets are great. It’s a Star Wars show that suits its own little corner of the universe and doesn’t rely on the rest of what’s happening in the galaxy for fun. Hopefully the rest of the season picks up the pace a bit.”
