We don’t know much about the upcoming Clone Wars replacement series Star Wars: Rebels, but now we have our best look yet at the “Jedi hunter” baddie who will be causing trouble for our new team of do-gooders.
Disney was kind enough to debut the action figure for the Inquisitor (yes, we have action figures before we even have a decent clip of the show), who at least has the look of a total badass, even in toy form. We may not know any details on the main characters, but we do know who’ll be trying to kill them.
The series will be set between Episodes III and IV, looking at the early days of the rebellion and the expansion of the Empire. Apart from that, details are pretty scarce, though producers Simon Kinberg (X-Men: First Class, Sherlock Holmes), Dave Filoni (Star Wars: Clone Wars) and Greg Weisman (Young Justice, Gargoyles) will be calling the shots behind the scenes.
Here’s the character/figure description for the Inquisitor:
The Inquisitor, the Empire's Jedi hunter and a major new villain in the highly anticipated Star Wars Rebels animated series, was unveiled by Lucasfilm at this year's New York Comic Con. Today, StarWars.com is excited to present the official reveal for the character's first ever 3.75-inch action figure from Hasbro.
The figure -- the first to be seen from the upcoming Star Wars Rebels Saga Legends line -- features five points of articulation, show-accurate accessories, and is sculpted in the art style of the series. Look for the Inquisitor and the Star Wars Rebels Saga Legends line to hit store shelves in fall 2014.
What do you think about what we know so far about the series? Can it ever fill that Clone Wars void?
