Hasbro PR Package: Star Wars Celebration Chicago 2019 Black Series 6″ Exclusives

With Star Wars Celebration Chicago 2019 practically on our doorstep, Hasbro’s public relations team at Litzky PR has graciously sent along a promo package containing the two Black Series 6″ Obi-Wan Kenobi and Darth Maul figures from The Phantom Menace that were first revealed at Toy Fair NY during the Hasbro Brand Preview Event. I snapped a few photos of each figure (the foil cardbacks do not play nicely with light sources) which you can check out via the image gallery supplied below (official Hasbro press images of the figures can be found here).

Not only will Episode I be represented at Celebration by these two 6″ commemorative figures, there will also be a special panel taking place on Monday, April 15 celebrating the 20th anniversary of The Phantom Menace and the beginning of George Lucas’ Prequel Trilogy. The panel will be held from 11:00am – 12:00pm on the Celebration Stage located in the Wintrust Arena.

As always, Jedi News deeply thanks Litzky PR for this much-appreciated Hasbro promo package.
