Over the weekend at the MCM London Comic Con, Hasbro revealed two new Star Wars and Marvel figures that will be available in Spring 2018.


The Porgs were first revealed in behind the scenes footage from The Last Jedi at the D23 Expo in July 2017. According to Pablo Hidalgo, who is a creative executive currently working for Lucasfilm on the Star Wars franchise and member of the Lucasfilm Story Group, “Porgs are native to (the planet) Ahch-To, and can be found dwelling along the cliffs of the island where Jedi Master Luke Skywalker and Rey are. In many ways, they’re the Star Wars version of puffins. They build nests. They can fly. Their babies are called porglets.”

THE LAST JEDI, written and directed by Rian Johnson, is the second installment in the Star Wars sequel trilogy following Star Wars: The Force Awakens (2015). The film stars Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, Kelly Marie Tran and Andy Serkis in returning roles.

STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI is scheduled for release December 15, 2017.


According to Wikipedia, The Black Knight is the alias of several fictional characters appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics.

The original Black Knight is Sir Percy of Scandia, a 6th-century knight who serves at the court of King Arthur as his greatest warrior. Recruited by the wizard Merlin, Percy adopts a double identity, and pretends to be totally incompetent until changing into the persona of the Black Knight. As the Black Knight, Percy wields the Ebony Blade, which Merlin forged from a meteorite. A constant foe of the evil knight Mordred the Evil (Arthur’s traitorous nephew), Percy is eventually killed by him during the fall of Camelot when stabbed from behind with an enchanted blade – although Mordred then dies himself of wounds inflicted by Arthur.Merlin ensures that Percy’s spirit will live on by casting a spell that will revive his ghost if Mordred should ever return.Percy’s spirit has appeared several times to counsel his descendant, Dane Whitman.
