Black Series, 2015
Accessories: Blaster Pistol, Removable Helmet
Appears in: The Force Awakens, The Last Jedi
Card Back: An ace pilot, Poe Dameron is a leader in The Resistance’s fight against the evil First Order. He soars into battle behind the controls of a modern X-wing fighter.
In 2015 I was too burned by The Force Awakens to collect many of the figures, even though I did like some of the new characters – Poe Dameron chief amongst them. Yet it wasn’t until four years later and the great sale at The Entertainer that I finally added the 3.75″ Black Series version of Dameron to the collection.
Why did I buckle? Three simple points:
- Decent articulation and removable helmet
- Great price
- He’s a mofoin’ X-Wing pilot
That was about two months ago, and since then this version of Poe has seen something of a resurgence. Firstly this figure has been re-released in The Vintage Collection with a new head sculpt and printed face apps, making it a definitive 3.75” Poe Dameron in X-Wing gear.
Secondly, Hasbro have now also released his ship – a bright orange T-70 X-Wing Fighter – also in The Vintage Collection. It comes with all the bells and whistles included and frankly looks like a miniature masterpiece; a definite high point of the revitalised 3.75” line.
With all that context in place, today is as good a day as any to review the Black Series 3.75” Poe Dameron figure. Let’s get to it!
