Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

The Black Series (3.75") Wave 3 Case Assortment just revealed:

Darth Vader
Luke Skywalker (Yavin Ceremony)
Clone Pilot
Luminara Unduli
41st Elite Corps Clone Trooper
Stormtrooper
Mara Jade Skywalker
Merumeru
Vizam
Darth Plageuis
Mace Windu (The Clone Wars)
Commander Neyo


Seven out of twelve are carry forwards from previous waves, and aside from Mara Jade they're pretty questionable given the awful track record with carry forwards taking up half or more of certain case assortments over the course of this past year.



Hasbro never learns.

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

I thought that I'd mention that the first wave of the Black Series is available to pre-order on Big Bad Toy Store. If I get any of these...these will be the first Star Wars figures I've had since I was a little kid.

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

Which scale would you purchase? Classic 3.75" or the new, larger and more detailed 6" line?

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

I was originally going to go for the 3.75 inch line...but I think I like the 6 inch line better. They'll go nicely with my DC figure collection lol. Out of the batch...I will probably be picking up Slave Leia and Episode IV Han. I really like how Han looks sculpt and design wise.

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

They're doing a regular white 6" Stormtrooper, too. He won't be out until at least the third wave of the new line but he's currently on display at Celebration Europe II over in Germany.

He looks pretty great. I imagine he'll be an army builder for the folks who can manage to find more than one of him and don't mind plunking down $20 or more apiece.

Celebration Europe II / Hasbro image of the upcoming 6" Stormtrooper in the Black Series. This will most likely be in Wave 3 or Wave 4 of the larger-scale line.

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

Yeah, while a handful of 3.75" Imperial troopers and Prequel Clones look as close to spot-on as you can get in that limited scale, they can nail more of the screen detail in 6" and larger and I imagine this new Stormtrooper will be pretty popular for those who can order a lot of them or manage to find more than one or two in retail stores (they ship just one character in a case of four).

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

My copy of Hawkeye: Little Hits arrived today. Clint is delighted...but Tasha is in for a surprise.





"Work Wife? What the hell does that mean? Who the hell is Bobbi? Who the hell is Jessica???" Comic canon and action figure "life" collide!

It'll get worse for 'Tasha since Clint's been dating Spider-Woman in "Avengers" Oh Jess is in that panel with his ex's lol.

Ah, yes. Hasbro's grand tradition of shortpacking troop-builders.
