Over the weekend, news broke via eBay auctions and social media of a new 6″ Black Series Rey & BB-8 variant. This time, Rey includes the Skywalker lightsaber as an added accessory. Look for this version to ship alongside reissues of wave 4 that includes X-wing Pilot Asty and General Hux.

By all accounts, this looks to be a simple re-package of the Nerf Luke Skywalker Bladebuilders Lightsaber that hit stores on Force Friday (yes, there was product released that day) but now with Rey taking front and center on the card art – as she should.
Thanks to @thisginger_kt on Twitter for the heads up.
Sometimes the addition of a couple simple accessories, to an already good figure, can make it great. Here is a quick and easy upgrade you can do to the current Rey (Resistance Outfit) figure to re-create the final scenes from The Force Awakens.
