Bad Batch Season 2 Black Series Season 2 Figures?
Thanks to Entertainment Earth and their cryptic toy drop message that reads: “Enlist in a reminder from this new batch of Star Wars action figures.” We could be totally off base here and this could mean nothing but The Bad Batch Season 2 came out on Disney+ last this month and we have an idea on what these figures could look like based on their new appearance in the animated series! To keep up with the latest drops on Entertainment Earth, check out their Drop Zone calendar.
Bad Batch Season 1 vs. 2 Figures
We are hoping that new Bad Batch Season 2 Black Series figures are revealed as the crew from the Bad Batch is sporting new looks with updated their armor and outfits. The Bad Batch’s armor is a bit more patchwork and Omega sports her own helmet. Overall, there are more colors that are vibrant, giving them a distinct look from Season 1 and Season 2. According to StarWars.com, “We worked really closely with Dave [Filoni] to make sure they look right,” said Brad Rau. “We iterated on these characters to get that kit-bashed, worn-through feeling, which really mirrors where they’re at at this point, very early on in Season 2.” Let’s take a closer look at the Black Series Designs next to the images from the official trailer to see the differeces!
Former ARC Trooper Echo joined the Bad Batch towards the end of the Clone Wars after his rescue from the Techno Union. During his years as a soldier in the Grand Army of the Republic, Echo proved to be among the bravest clones, integral in the defense of Rishi Station and Tipoca City. As part of Clone Force 99, Echo’s knowledge of proper military tactics and strategy provides valuable insight, while his socket-arm and cybernetic implants give him the unique ability to interact with computer systems.
The most notable difference between his Season 1 and Season 2 look from a figure perspective will be the orange markings on the forearm armor, his white armor on his upper arms, and his beige kama. It looks like the helmet and the backpack will carry over a similar design to Season 1.
Serving as medical assistant to Nala Se, the young girl known as Omega has a curious mind and an affinity for the elite clone troopers known as Clone Force 99, but many underestimate her intelligence. After spending her life working in Tipoca City on Kamino, the product of the Kaminoans cloning experimentation, Omega embarks on a new adventure with the Bad Batch following the dawn of the Empire.
Omega’s look has transformed from a the medical assistant look that she had on Kamino to more of a soldier. This is great because she was an extremely valuable member of the Bad Batch and now she has the look to back it up. Her figure will most likely feature a helmet and we hope it will be removable so we can see her longer hair she is sporting in Season 2. The orange markings on her helmet and her shirt fit in with the rest of the Bad Batch’s new armor design.
The boisterous bruiser of Clone Force 99, a group of elite Republic soldiers known as the Bad Batch, Wrecker is a tower of a soldier, with powerful muscles that make him far stronger than the average clone. He earns his nickname well, as he has a flair for bashing droids and is the resident demolitions expert — a job he performs with much enthusiasm.
In Season 2, Wrecker’s armor features an orange stripe running down the front of his chest armor with yellow accents on his right shoulder armor and underneath his upper body armor. This is a nice change as Wrecker’s design for his Black Series Figure was dark gray and black with some red accents, like the rest of the figures from Season 1. His helmet appears to be missing the numbers on the front forehead and it looks like he is wearing a regular belt, similar to those worn by the Jedi.
In the unusual group of specialist clone commandos called Clone Force 99 (or the Bad Batch), Tech is the computer and weapons specialist and easily the most talkative of the group. With his data analysis skills, he can puzzle through technical issues at speeds even faster than some droids.
Tech’s armor in Season 1 and his Black Series figure was in stark contrast to the rest of the Bad Batch. His look for Season 2 remains the most unchanged as they have updated his red markings to orange and help the rest of his design very similar to that of Season 1. We are guessing that his gray accents will be replaced by black paint apps in the goggles and helmet for his Season 2 Black Series figure design.
The Bad Batch, technically known as Clone Force 99, is the result of Kaminoan experiments to create a specialist unit of clone commandos. Hunter, their leader, is a strong and stoic soldier. Hunter has extraordinarily keen senses that give him an edge when tracking down his targets.
Hunter has the most dramatic change from his Black Series figure design to his new look for Season 2. His helmet is sporting a thick orange stripe down the top, on his nose, and his mouth area on his helmet. He is also wearing white shoulder armor with teal accents and a maroon scarf around his neck. He also has some white armor pieces on the lower half of his body and you can see the orange markings on his left leg armor.
