Hasbro keeps chipping away on finishing the original 96 Kenner Star Wars figures in the 3 3/4" Star Wars The Vintage Collection and we are proud to present an exclusive reveal as part of Hasbro's Fan Celebration! Fellow collectors, meet Helder Spinoza, one of the Bespin Security Guards in the Empire Strikes Back! The figure will go on pre-order on March 24, 2022 at 1pm EST exclusively at Walmart for $14.99.
Emily Cantelupe, who worked on the figure, shared the following:
“Since our release of the Carbon Freezing Chamber playset we’ve wanted to create figures which add to the world of Bespin for great playset displays. Joining our recent updates to Lando and Lobot is the Bespin Security Guard, who brings some great color with their blue and crimson uniform. We wanted to create specific portrait of the actors from the film, so this release portrays Helder Spinoza. With his iconic mustache. This Bespin wing guard was the inspiration for an original Kenner figure. In order to more accurately portray this character, we’ve also given him a new cardback image which more accurately matches Helder.”
Helder Spinoza will join following Bespin Security Guards in Hasbro's 3 3/4" action figure lines:
