Wave 2 of the Black Series (3.75") is shipping to people who ordered the new wave assortment online. It's being randomly spotted at overseas retail. It's just a matter of time before the first American store reports of Mara Jade and the gang showing up on domestic pegs.

Went to Target again today and this time they had the Black Series 6-inch figures, all four of the first wave. I can only really afford to get one at the moment, so I chose Luke.
When I went back to Target yesterday, they had all four back in stock, so I picked up the Sandtrooper.

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

I have two 6" Sandtroopers. I've seen just three or four the entire time that the first wave of 6" figures has been out, and he's the hardest of the first four characters to find in this area. Luke and Artoo seem to be the easiest to spot of the four and the ones that tend to linger on the shelf the longest.

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

The brand new Toys "R" Us-exclusive multipack sets are beginning to hit.

Seems as if the shelf price for each of these is going to be $39.99, roughly the same as the Ewok and Yavin Pilot multipacks from a while back.

Tony probably had to explain to Steve what "Star Wars" was lol. That was awesome though.

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

The boxed image of the upcoming Kmart-exclusive Death Star Scanning Crew 2-pack, one of three Kmart exclusive sets planned for the fall and Holiday shopping season.

While the other Scanning Crew set contains a grey-uniformed scanning officer and a repack of an older Stormtrooper (the 2004 VOTC clamshell figure I've heard), this one contains the black-uniformed Death Star detention block officer (Lt. Childsen; "Where are you taking this - thing?") who hasn't been immortalized in plastic form up until now. I imagine this set will be more popular than the other Scanning Crew due to Childsen being in it and more than a few people getting tired of repacked Stormtroopers using older molds.

The third Kmart set will be the Ewok Catapult, which will come in a slightly larger package to accommodate the catapult weapon pieces and retail for about six more dollars than the two Scanning Crews.

But Hawkeye never misses. How can he be a Stormtrooper?

Zing!

Something about Tony Stark as Han Solo just seems so....right. Except Tony's Han would never even get up and leave the Cantina after shooting Greedo - he'd just keep sitting there and downing shots of booze until closing time.
