To commemorate a major milestone, Hasbro created The Black Series 40th Anniversary collection. The line, which was revealed in their showroom at the 2017 International Toy Fair, the 40th Anniversary collection features 6-inch action figures based on the ones originally released by Kenner in 1978. Completing the first twelve classic Kenner figures from 1978, the second wave of figures in this special collection, which included Jawa, Sand People, Death Squad Commander, Chewbacca, Stormtrooper, and See-Threepio, began hitting shelves in June, 2017.
While the Sand People action figure is a debut release, it shares this distinction with The Black Series collection's #41 Tusken Raider which came out at roughly the same time, give or take a couple of weeks depending on where you live. The Sand Person action figure gives collectors options with not only a long rifle, but a Gaderffii stick with three interchangeable bludgeoning tips! Any less than four Sand People and you simply don't have enough!
