New 6″ Rey (Resistance) Revealed at Hasbro Breakfast

A new 6″ Black Series Rey (Resistance) was revealed at today Hasbro Breakfast. The image above comes from Steve Evans, Design Director at Hasbro via Instagram. He also states that starting in Spring 2018, they’ll be implementing a new paint technique.

UPDATE: here are a couple nice shots of TLJ and TFA Rey courtesy of The Wookiee Gunner

    Wow! This portrait looks stunning! I am much more excited for this Resistance Rey than I am for the Last Jedi Rey.

    This is good news indeed if faces are going to look this good moving forward.

  • Rykrof_Enloe

    Jedi robes Rey = hot in demand figure
    Training Rey = too much like TFA Rey, this slot should have been to get more of old Jedi Luke out there or ~GASP~ more Darth Revan.

    • Bombadgungan

      I don’t know. I’m head over heels for this Resistance Rey, whereas Jedi Training Rey strikes me as too much of a stereotypical female jedi character from any number of EU sources. Maybe I’ll change my mind once I see the movie and have something tangible to relate this outfit to. I know it’s all subjective, but that’s where I’m coming from. I don’t doubt TLJ Rey will sell just fine though (unless she’s overproduced like 6″ Jyn).

    I would wait until FF to buy the Jedi training Rey figure and if there’s a DJ figure that would be a nice add with rey.

  • Sith Lord Jacen

    peg warmer.

  • Fiery Little One

    If they were just re-releasing her without changing the outfit at all, I’d say ‘pass’ even if they made some tweaks. The new outfits make me put them on the ‘maybe’ pile.

  • Hasbro breakfast sounds unappetizing.

    • Leftovers and scraps that have been on the clearance rack at the market.

      C-3P Oh’s, mmmm…

  • Brian B.

    I saw this on twitter and I honestly didn’t think that was Black Series at first. That looks awesome!

  • bigpiffle

    ‘new paint technique’ is either really good news or really bad news!

    • Paulskywalker

      On the Instagram, it says face application technique. Looking at sculpt I’d say it was how they do face sculpt now. Maybe the paint app too.

  • Mike

    Is this the one available on Force Friday then, rather than the Jedi Training Rey that comes in the SDCC 2 pack? That could change my desire to get the SDCC exclusive…

    • bigpiffle

      i think it’d be a bit unfair if they didn’t pre warn people that the jedi training rey wouldn’t be released anywhere else, and i’d guess her training outfit is in a lot of the film so being an exclusive wouldn’t make too much sense…? who knows

  • RumSleg

    So is Jedi Training Rey coming on FF, and Resistance Rey coming in a later wave? Out of order. I think Resistance Rey might not sell well, as she’s from the last movie and casual buyers (those who will only buy one Rey for this film) will opt for the Jedi Training version.

    • Paulskywalker

      Looking at the images we’ve seen so far she’s wearing the resistance outfit at first in TLJ so will still be familiar.

      • RumSleg

        I guess so. It may come down to what’s on the pegs when people run out of the movie and are excited to make a purchase.

        • CT-7567

          I always use to buy figures right after seeing a new SW film. Then Hasbro ruined it for me with TFA. The only figures I could find that day were the 6″ Guavian(admittedly a nice figure but I wanted 3.75″) and the overpriced AU Chewie. With RO I actually held off on opening some figures for the day of the movie, but it wasn’t the same.

        • Bombadgungan

          This doesn’t seem out of order to me (other than releasing an Ep. VIII version before a Ep. VII version). Force Friday is all about the new movie coming out and they want to showcase the big heroes and villains from that media. Wave 1 always seems to ship heavy, even if not as much as is needed for the actual Midnight Madness. So get plenty of the new Jedi Training Rey out there for casual and die hard fans alike and then when things die down a few month later, release Resistance Rey in more conservative numbers.

    • Seronious

      I bet resistance Rey will be packed like FN2187 – in one of the later waves, and packed only one time in one case, and then it’s hard to find once that wave is finished. Or she could be part of some exclusive 3 pack or something like that. With the speeder bike, and this reveal – it completes all the Rey variants in 6″ form from the Force Awakens.

      • Bombadgungan

        All of the Reys? Are you sure? What about young abandoned on Jakku Rey? What about grimacing tortured by Kylo Ren Rey? What about X-Wing Pilot helmeted Rey eating in the shadow of a fallen AT-AT? Just sayin’. There are options. 🙂

        • Seronious

          Dang…..don’t give them ideas!

    • CT-7567

      She does seem to wear this outfit in TLJ. At least at the beginning of the film.

  • Hazzbro Jonez

    okay ill take two and slap that head on the other rey shown.

  • Paulskywalker

    I saw the full figure over at JI. Great news, hoped we were getting her. Rey’s doing well for figures. I like the head sculpt.
