Star Wars Jedi: Survivor is the highly anticipated Fallen Order sequel that likely brings Cal Kestis back in a role as a Jedi Knight. The game has no release date yet and has only been shown once in a trailer, but is getting its first action figure soon. Hasbro just unveiled a six-inch Black Series action figure for the KX Security Droid that will make its debut in the sequel game.
The security droids were a major threat in Fallen Order and now they look even more imposing with what appears to be a fuel-based weapon. The armor on the droid’s back must be a weak point. Part of Hasbro’s long-running Gaming Greats line, this figure is sold exclusively at GameStop and will be available for pre-order starting July 28 at 1pm ET.
Hasbro also announced that a Cal Kestis Vintage Collection figure is on the way, giving us a clear look at the protagonist’s new attire. Standing at 3.75 inches tall, this figure features a nice range of articulation and comes with a blue lightsaber and his companion BD-1. As you can see, Cal no longer wears a poncho and has some facial hair. You can pre-order Cal from most retailers, including Hasbro Pulsebeginning July 23 at 5:00 p.m. ET.
The most interesting aspect of the Cal figure is the blaster accessory. Is that a reference to Survivor with running and shooting along with the expected Jedi action? Or could it be a weapon he uses in a story sequence? We’ll have to wait to find out, but it’s a strange item that comes with the action figure.
Hasbro also announced a new Battle Droid that Cal will likely hack (or blast) to pieces in a matter of seconds. The B1 Battle Droid is articulated to collapse in dropship delivery form. This figure is sold exclusively at GameStop and is available for pre-order on July 28th at 1pm ET.
This is a wonderful start to a collection for a game I can’t wait to get my hands on. We’re hoping Hasbro will add more numbers in the coming months. Who are the villains? That’s the big question I want answered.
