The company has designed several figures inspired by Star Wars characters. Aside from Favreau, they also made a Stormtrooper version of George Lucas, the creator of Star Wars. They also made one for Ralph McQuarrie, the conceptual artist of the franchise.

The Black Series figure will not be released until the Fall of 2022. However, fans can pre-order during the Star Wars Celebration for $39.99. Hasbro will provide a one-time promo code at their booth. Fans who wish to purchase may scan the code and directly make an order at the Hasbro Pulse website. This is exclusive and is different from the pre-order for the general market.

Jon Favreau has been working on Star Wars even before The Mandalorian and his dedication to the franchise just earns him the privilege of having his own action figure. He worked at the 2018 Solo: A Star Wars Story as the voice of the Ardennian pilot. The creator revealed that he wrote the first few episodes of The Mandalorian even before he was hired to do so.

“I just started writing. So by the time I was officially hired, I had already written the first, I think, four episodes,” says Favreau. This only proves his passion for the craft extends beyond work. The Mandalorian arrived on Disney+ in 2019.

Because of the show’s success, Lucasfilm offered Jon Favreau a deal to create more for the series. He is currently working on a few projects, such as Season 3 of The Mandalorian, The Book of Boba Fett, and Ahsoka.
