WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion, Sasha Banks, will receive her very own Star Wars action figure from a galaxy far far away.
On January 30, 2021, Hasbro announced a series of pipeline reveals for the forthcoming line of action figures for their hugely popular and collectable Star Wars: The Black Series. Alongside the characters Tech, Zero, Aurra Sing and the legendary Lando Calrissian, was Banks’ Mandalorian character Koska Reeves.
Taking to Twitter, the superstar expressed her surprise as to having now been released in both WWE and Star Wars form with the simple phrase:
“What the HOLY… @Hasbro @starwars.”

Sasha Banks’ iconic plastic image will sit alongside immortal names from the same line which include Princess Leia, Han Solo, Moff Gideon, Jar Jar Binks, Boba Fett and of course Luke Skywalker.
The leading light of Friday Night SmackDown’s women’s division portrayed Koska Reeves in the Disney+ Star Wars series, The Mandalorian, appearing as a member of the Night Owls who had a hand in saving the beloved baby Yoda. As of writing, she has appeared in two episodes of the popular series with fans clamouring for a return of the character in the upcoming third season.
Away from the world of science fiction, Sasha Banks will defend her WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship against Carmella at the 2021 WWE Royal Rumble on January 31.
