While The Acolyte fans might look at the battered mask of the dark side villain formerly lovingly known as Darth Teeth, now slightly less lovingly known as the Stranger, and be a bit traumatized after the horrors of this week’s episode, we can all still acknowledge that it’s an amazing bit of design. So much so, we all kind of want one of our own to headbutt a laser sword with. But alas! We’ll have to wait a while.

Revealed by Collider today, Hasbro confirmed it’ll be turning the Stranger’s bronze-hued, toothy helmet into the latest prop entry in its Star Wars Black Series replica line. Retailing for $100, the replica features a padded interior for wear, as well as light-up features—it’s a pretty awesome take on one the coolest bits of design in the show so far. Maybe don’t try letting your friends swing a lightsaber at your head while wearing it though—you might short something out, but probably not the lightsaber blade.

Alas—unlike the first Acolyte figures, which are due to arrive this summer shortly after the series comes to an end, you’ll have to wait a while before you can don the Stranger’s mask and stalk around your local forest looking creepy. Hasbro’s Stranger helmet goes up for pre-order tomorrow, June 27, at 1 p.m. ET on Hasbro Pulse and at other retailers, but it won’t ship until fall of 2025. Five, not four. It’s enough to make you want to go slash up some Jedi, isn’t it?

Click through to see some pictures of the replica while you wait… and in the meantime, we’ll cross our fingers and hope it won’t take as long for the Stranger to come to Hasbro’s next wave of Acolyte action figures.
