Previous Bring Home the Galaxy Reveals
Here are a few of the previous weeks reveals from the Star Wars Bring Home the Galaxy campaign if you missed them!
November 15, 2022: Carbonized Tie Fighter Pilot and Royal Guard Black Series Reveal and Preorder
As part of Hasbro’s Star Wars Bring Home the Galaxy reveals, The Emperor’s Royal Guard and the Tie Fighter Pilot are getting carbonized in an Amazon exclusive 2-pack that goes up for preorder on November 16, 2022 at 1pm ET. The preorder is live and you can visit the Amazon page here or the image below to check stock status and place your order! Special thanks to Screen Rant for this first look and reveal of this special 2-pack immortalizing two iconic figures from the Return of the Jedi line!
Emperor’s Royal Guard and Tie Fighter Pilot
While the outer packaging has yet to be revealed, we can see the carded versions of the figures and, in carbonized style, they feature two different color treatments to the cards. As this is seen as a hallmark of the Carbonized line, we are sure these figures will look great displayed in package next to your other Black Series figures.
Tie Fighter Pilot
The Tie Fighter Pilot is featured on his oversized vintage styled card back sporting the Return of the Jedi 40th Anniversary Logo. The card back is colorized in a blueish tint and the figure is set off by a light blue background.
Since the Carbonized line features highly detailed paint apps, you will notice more a metallic sheen to the figure. While not the traditional black we are used to seeing in the Tie Fighter Pilot, he is painted in a deep blue that brings out the amazing details.
Like the previous Black Series Tie Fighter Pilot figures, the only weapon he comes with is his trusty blaster, which can holster as a sidearm.
Emperor’s Royal Guard
The Emperor’s Royal Guard card features a deep cranberry coloring and the figure is set off by a light blue background on the blister. Featuring the 40th anniversary Return of the Jedi logo, the Royal Guard is one of the more iconic figures in the line so it’s great to see him getting the carbonized treatment.
He comes packed with a staff and his blaster like previous iterations of the Royal Guard figure.
He also features a soft goods cape that is removable, which gives him a more slimline look!

Retail Price: $27.99/Available: Spring 2023) Cold, calculating droid 4-LOM and bounty hunter Zuckuss were summoned by Darth Vader to locate the Millennium Falcon and her crew in STAR WARS: THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK – and together, they make a deadly pair.

Includes 2 figures and 2 entertainment-inspired accessories. Available for pre-order 11/16 at 1pm ET exclusively at Amazon. Visit starwars.com for more Bring Home the Galaxy product reveals!

Vintage Boba Fett Figure
Originally part of a mail away promotion in 1979, Boba Fett was supposed to come with “rocket firing action”. But due to safety regulations, when Boba Fett was eventually released for mass production, his rocket was glued into place! Prototype versions of the Rocket Firing Boba Fett do exist and are the rarest of all Star Wars collectibles! They fetch thousands of dollars and are the most sought-after Star Wars collectable item ever!
Here we can see what the 1980 Empire Strikes Back Boba Fett Figure looked like. As you can see the new Retro Collection Version is a perfect Homage to this version. Thank you to the jeditemplearchives.com for this great overview on this figure!
