It is not surprising that the world of the story’s characters, created by George Lucas, or the galactic saga in general, celebrates Christmas in one way or another. Whether with Christmas cards, like the mythical Yoda Noel, with dolls, like the mythical Yoda Noel that emerges from the postcard mentioned above, with Christmas decorations for the tree, or even with songs and Christmas carols like on the album Christmas in the Stars: Star Wars Christmas Album, which was directed by actor Anthony Daniels (C-3PO),
Hasbro announces three new figures from its Star Wars Black Series that join our celebrations, collections, and nativity scenes of all kinds. Last year, Hasbro also got very festive and released many more Christmas dolls, including a Wookie, a Mandalorian, a Scout Trooper, and several more. And it seems that Christmas is even celebrated in a galaxy far, far away.
Three (four) red, green, and white action figures
The three new action figures from Hasbro are an Ewok, a Jawa with Salacius B. Crumb, and a Purge Trooper. All filled with holiday-appropriate accessories and decorations, ready to celebrate and give and receive gifts (perhaps an Ewok dinner with Roast Troopers?). All with the usual Star Wars Black Series finish and joints, as well as the appropriate aspect ratio and size (around 15 centimeters) that they normally have.
In the Ewok’s case, he brings his green poncho, a spear, and a small suitcase that opens so a Porg can enter and exit at any time. As for the Jawa, he is the one who looks the most festive, changing the usual color of his outfit to red with white trim, making him look like an elf helping Santa Claus. He comes with his weapon and the aforementioned figure of Salacius B. Krümel.
Finally, the Purge Trooper, the largest of the three, by no means discreetly emulates the typical Christmas Nutcracker (dressed as a soldier) that is usually easy to find in all stores at this time. He brings with him a rifle and his own robot assistant, which, according to Hasbro’s photos, in this case behaves more like a loyal dog than a servant of the Empire.
