Best-selling adventure game Star Wars: The Force Unleashed is getting an impressive new 3-figure STAR WARS: THE BLACK SERIES STARKILLER & TROOPERS multipack from Hasbro and we’ve got the exclusive info here at Fandom.

The set of figures will be exclusive to the upcoming Hasbro Pulse Con 2023 and features iconic The Force Unleashed Sith protégé turned proto-Rebel, Starkiller, along with two Stormtroopers who are probably regretting messing with him. Those attending San Diego Comic-Con next week will have a chance to see the set in person, where it will be on display at the Hasbro booth.

With The Black Series Starkiller and Troopers, you’ll get three premium 6-inch figures and 16 accessories, including Force effects — watch out for Starkiller’s formidable Force Lightning hands — and blaster bolt accessories. Retail Price for the set will be $110.99.

Despite not being part of any official Star Wars movie or series, Starkiller quickly became a fan-favorite character, as The Force Unleashed multimedia-verse included two games, novels, comics, toy lines, miniatures sets, and a roleplaying-game supplement. The new Black Series multipack boasts some beautiful box art, seen above, that’s a toy recreation of the original game art.

Following Starkiller (real name: Galen Marek) on his journey from being Darth Vader’s Sith assassin apprentice to turning toward the light and aiding the burgeoning Rebellion, The Force Unleashed featured Sam Witwer in the Starkiller role, who amassed enormous popularity as one of the most powerful Force-wielders in existence – at least in the Star Wars Legends timeline. A huge Star Wars fan, Witwer has since voiced other notably powerful, Dark Side-connected characters in projects like Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels, including the Son and Darth Maul.

Many have wanted to see Starkiller make his way into a live-action project and into official Star Wars canon and when projects like Andor and Obi-Wan Kenobi were announced, some thought it might be Galen Marek’s time to shine. So far though, Starkiller has yet to be made canon, though there have been some Easter eggs, like the name of the First Order military base in The Force Awakens also a nod to George Lucas’ early Star Wars drafts where the hero was called “Annikin Starkiller” (which is where the game got the name) – and, possibly, a hanging suit of armor glimpsed in Luthen Rael‘s Galactic Antiquities Shop on Andor.

The Star Wars: The Black Series Starkiller and Troopers set will allow fans to pose and stage Starkiller in action scenes involving lightsabers or that aforementioned Force lightning against some wildly outmatched Stormtroopers.

Hasbro Pulse Con, where the set will be made available for sale, will take place sometime this fall and the specific dates will be announced during San Diego Comic-Con.
