Today, ARC Trooper Echo, Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Clone Pilot Hawk join the range and Eric from Hasbro talks to StarWars.com about their arrival.

StarWars.com: What made you choose these four characters in particular to bring into the 6-inch Black Series line to represent The Clone Wars for the 50th anniversary of Lucasfilm?

Eric Franer: Obi-Wan and Anakin are [some of] the main characters, so we felt it was very important to bring them into the line, specifically in their clone armor. After considering those two characters, an ARC Trooper Echo was also another pivotal piece for the line; it’s great that this line allowed us to finally have an ARC Trooper sculpt in the Black Series! With these characters selected, Clone Pilot Hawk made a great addition to the line. Hawk is a such a unique character and, as a member of the 501st, is a great companion to both the ARC Trooper Echo and Anakin figures.

StarWars.com: The packaging is a really nice touch! Were you looking at the original 3.75-inch figures from this line for inspiration beyond the card back?

Eric Franer: Yes, we did look at the original 3.75-inch figures as inspiration for the card backs. With the Anakin and Obi-Wan figures in particular, we were able to use the actual illustrations from the original packaging. For Clone Pilot Hawk and ARC Trooper Echo, since these figures didn’t exist in the original 3.75-inch line, new illustrations were created to match the style of the original artwork. In terms of the actual figures, we focus on the realistic interpretations of the characters for the Black Series. For example, the original 3.75-inch figures were styled to look like the animation, but we updated them for the Black Series.
