Hasbro Pulse Reveals ‘Star Wars’ Black Series Wedge Antilles Helmet

Who else is thankful for Hasbro’s Black Series of ‘Star Wars’ prop replicas? I am. For years I bought and sold ‘Star Wars’ props on eBay. Man, did those prices get insane during the prequel years. Eventually, all my stock was gone, and I had nothing left for myself.
Then along comes Hasbro with this line of relatively inexpensive replicas. Sure, they may not be super screen-accurate. If you’re putting it up on the wall or on a bookshelf, who will notice? These certainly beat the ones you find at the Halloween stores every year by far.
Now that many of the main characters have had their goods appear in the Black Series, we’re going to start seeing some fan favorites hit the market. The veteran of Yavin, Hoth, and Endor finally gets some love! Yes, Wedge Antilles has made the list with a brand new helmet!
BleedingCool.com reported on the reveal from Hasbro Pulse Fan Fest. During the Star Wars panel, new merchandise was shown off. This, personally, is my favorite thing that popped up.
Those who own Luke’s helmet may notice a number of similarities. In essence, these are the same helmet. It just has different paint and “decals.” I’ve got Luke’s myself, and for the price, it’s a good deal. Buy a motorcycle helmet mount on Amazon and it makes a great bit of decor.
This version of the x-wing helmet does feature different voice lines. It’s great for those of us who miss Wedge. He was underused in both ‘The Rise of Skywalker’ and ‘Squadrons.’
