Greetings, Rebelscum! Check out the Hasbro Pulse Fanstream featuring the Star Wars team! The Fanstream is scheduled to begin at 11AM ET. We'll have a full breakdown of the reveals later today.

Ahead of the Fanstream, Hasbro has announced that they will be tweaking the packaging design of the Black Series, as referenced in the released pictures here:

You'll notice that the window appears slightly larger, and the angled side of the box has now been made flush to the side. They're also saying no changes will be coming to TVC or the Retro Collection.

Hasbro had this to say about the new design:
This year, in a continued effort to enhance the experience for fans of action figures and our recent steps to reevaluate our packaging goals, Hasbro created a new packaging structure for 6-inch figures.

Starting in Fall 2024, fans can expect the new packaging design across G.I. JOE and TRANSFORMERS, along with premier collaboration brands Star Wars™ and Marvel 6-inch collector figures. The new packaging structure features improved visibility of the figure and accessories, more robust packaging materials to protect against damage, and an improved unboxing experience for the figure and accessories. This new structure will also provide consistency across package size and design aesthetics for collectors who purchase figures across our brands.

This update does not include packaging for fan collectible products like the 6” Marvel Retro line, Star Wars Vintage and Retro, and G.I. JOE Retro, where packaging is part of the product experience and typically retained intact for fan display and collections.

We listened to our fans and collaborated with our partners to make these updates.
It's a fair guess that the Star Wars team will go into more detail regarding the packaging during the Fanstream.
