I really hope it is true that you can order these online because the local stores are wastelands. 

Wave 1 (all repacks) went up for pre-order last night, Wave 2 should be up in a few weeks (or sooner).

Here is the full press release from Hasbro & Walmart...

WALMART IS ANNOUNCED AS THE NEW EXCLUSIVE U.S. HOME OF HASBRO’S STAR WARS: THE BLACK SERIES 3 3/4-INCH FIGURES

The Collector-Favorite Line Will Feature Figures From the Saga Films and STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS, Beginning on September 4

BENTONVILLE, AR, Sep. 4, 2015 – Walmart and Hasbro, Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS) announced today that the retail giant will be the exclusive home of the fan-favorite STAR WARS: THE BLACK SERIES 3 3/4-inch toy line in the U.S.

Starting on “Force Friday,” September 4, Walmart.com will begin selling the first wave and taking pre-orders on the second wave of the highly collectible toy line. Customers will find the product in stores beginning in October, making Walmart the only destination in the U.S. for fans looking for highly detailed, highly articulated 3 3/4-inch figures based on the upcoming film STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS.

First launched in 2013, STAR WARS: THE BLACK SERIES 3 3/4-inch line quickly became a fan-favorite line, in the tradition of earlier Hasbro toy lines like the STAR WARS VINTAGE collection. As the new exclusive US home to the STAR WARS: THE BLACK SERIES 3 3/4-inch line, Walmart is proud to become the go-to destination for STAR WARS fans looking for the finest Hasbro toys available.

“Walmart is very excited to be the exclusive home of the Star Wars Black Series 3 ¾ inch figures,” said Anne Marie Kehoe, vice president of toys at Walmart. “This is just the beginning - fans, customers and collectors can expect Walmart and Walmart.com to be the place to find the newest characters and figures as they are released.”

“We’re thrilled that Walmart will be the new home for fans’ beloved STAR WARS: THE BLACK SERIES 3 3/4-inch toy line,” said Maureen Smith, senior vice president of brand marketing for Hasbro. “With the support of a world-class retailer like Walmart, we can ensure that collectors continue to get new, highly detailed and articulated 3 3/4-inch STAR WARS action figures for years to come.”

The first wave of the new STAR WARS: THE BLACK SERIES 3 3/4-inch line is currently available for purchase on Walmart.com and features EPISODE VI DARTH VADER, EPISODE VI LUKE SKYWALKER, and EPISODE IV CHEWBACCA. The second wave, featuring a brand new EPISODE IV PRINCESS LEIA figure and the first two figures based on STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS (FIRST ORDER STORMTROOPER and KYLO REN), are available to pre-order now on Walmart.com. Both waves will be available in stores in the next few months.  Additional 3 ¾-inch figures will be coming later in 2015.

Hmmm...  some of them are definitely not new designs - R2-Q2 was in one of the EE packs; R4-M9 was in the POTJ line.

Both of those droids were in the OT.  They could also be in TFA I guess... but half the box being remakes makes it a little less special to me. :(

I haven't seen any confirmation on whether they are "off-screen" Hasbro creations or things from TFA with official weapon names...  we have an email out to Hasbro to see if they can comment on them now that it's past 9/4.

Not online yet, but it sounds like Wave 2 will be:

- ANH Princess Leia (Yavin Ceremony)
- TFA First Order Stormtrooper
- TFA Kylo Ren

You can kinda see a preview of Kylo in this pic from Yakface's Facebook page (middle right or photo).  You'll see there appears to be a 3.75" Rey figure in there too... not sure if she'll end up in this wave or Wave 3.

First wave is starting to pop up on Walmart.com... 

Price = $12.93 and all repacks so far. :(

And yes, like the rumor that popped up this AM, they are BOXED like the 6" stuff.

1x Constable Zuvio
1x Guavian Enforcer
1x Poe Dameron (Pilot)

Looks like these are scaled to be a 6.5" line - some are slightly smaller (Rey = 6") and some are larger (Phasma = 7.25").  The TFA wave is up on the DisneyStore.com now - $24.95 each.
