Even though the new live-action Star Wars series The Mandalorian follows a singular bounty hunter from the tribe of the same name, we’ve learned there are plenty of other warriors donning the same signature armor. One of the more prominent characters introduced is called Paz Vizla, but when it comes to selling this guy as a new Star Wars collectible, he’s simply called the Heavy Infantry Mandalorian. Hot on the heels of receiving a Black Series figure from Hasbro, the character is also joining the Hot Toys line-up. Check out the Heavy Infantry Mandalorian Hot Toys figure below. This is the way.

Returning to the enclave on a volcanic world with a camtono of Imperial beskar, the Mandalorian intending to create new armor from it was confronted by a group of other Mandalorians, including Heavy Infantry Mandalorian, who condemned the lone gunfighter for transacting with the Empire.
Following the official introduction of the first wave of Hot Toys’ The Mandalorian collectible figures featuring the title character and IG-11, we are excited to continue the unveil of astonishingly detailed collectibles based on the first-ever live action Star Wars series and officially introduce the new 1/6th scale collectible figure of this Heavy Infantry Mandalorian! The highly-accurate collectible figure is specially crafted based on the image of Heavy Infantry Mandalorian.
Highlighting the features are the newly designed helmet and armor pieces, meticulously tailored outfit, beautifully applied weathering effects, finely sculpted jetpack, highly detailed and articulated heavy blaster with ammo belt, a blade, and a desert-themed figure base.
The accessories and armor on this figure are outstanding. From the jetpack to that heavy blaser and ammo belt, this is one bad ass collectible figure. He even comes with a vibroblade so you can have him square off with Mando on your shelf.
You can see more photos of the Hot Toys Heavy Infantry Mandalorian figure over on the Hot Toys Facebook page. The figure wasn’t available for pre-order at the time of this writing, but it should be very soon. You can RSVP to be notified of when pre-orders are available at Sideshow Collectibles right here.
Last week, Hasbro celebrated Star Wars Fan Appreciation Day, because every single day is a new chance for the population at large to be marketed to by major corporations. Thankfully, we’re Star Wars fans, and the announcement of new Star Wars Black Series figures is an exciting one, especially when they include a new version of The Mandalorian in Beskar armor, the respected Admiral Ackbar, a fierce Ewok warrior, and a slick carbonized version of a beloved character from The Empire Strikes Back.
The Mandalorian Black Series Action Figure
Just before The Mandalorian arrived on Disney+, the first wave of merchandising from the live-action Star Wars series arrived in stores along with the first action figures from Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. But it seemed Hasbro didn’t properly anticipate demand for the Black Series figures associated with the series, because nearly all of them have been extremely difficult to find, especially Mando himself. But hopefully that will change with this new version of the bounty hunter.
Unlike the first version of The Mandalorian Black Series figure, this one comes with shiny new Beskar armor. It’s a much cleaner version of the character, and he still comes with all the appropriate weaponry. Unfortunately, there’s no two-pack that comes with The Child known as Baby Yoda, but you can still buy the little guy separately.

Two characters from Return of the Jedi are getting their due diligence as Black Series figures. Admiral Ackbar joins the line, looking like his back has been seriously injured in the promotional photo above. Meanwhile, the Ewok known as Teebo is clearly not in the mood for dealing with any Stormtrooper crap, so don’t mess with that dude.

Finally, after first being introduced on Triple Force Friday last fall, the carbonized variant line of Black Series figures is getting two new additions this year, and they should be infinitely easier to find than that initial wave, especially since they’re both available for pre-order over at Big Bad Toy Store right now.
