- R2-D2
- Pablo-Jill
- Luminara Unduli
- 41st Clone Trooper

I haven't seen pics yet, but thought I'd start up a thread so we have one when pics surface... 

Sounds like it includes Vader, Operating Table and some other figures.  I'm also not sure if this is really a TVC item or if it's a cheapy Legends item... I'll just put it here for now (Vintage) and move it later if needed.

I'm guessing this one will be like the AT-ST Drivers.  If the price holds, that'll be a nice buy for $15. :)

Sounds like it's going to include TWO ball turrets, Yoda, and a pair of Clone Troopers.  Probably going to be pretty spendy since it's TRU.  :(

Head on over to starwars-figuren for our first peek at the Black Series 3.75" cardback (spoiler alert - it looks like the 6" packaging :P).

Like it?  Hate it?  Too plain?  Were you going to hate it regardless because you want the Kenner cardback back?

OK, all we know so far is that we're probably getting the Vader artwork on a boring cardback for the Black Series 3.75" figures.

What are your hopes and dreams for this line?  What is the one thing that would kill it for you?  What is the one thing that would make it the greatest line ever?


For me, jumping to a MSRP of >$10 would kill my enthusiasm.  $10 is really the ultimate cap for these and I'd be willing to give up some articulation (down to the 9-11 points range - I'm fine with no ankles and cut elbows sometimes) if it meant shaving a buck or two off the price.

Make it the Greatest line ever?  Why the debut of the Tonnika Sisters of course!  Those would be the ultimate "15th Cantina Guy".  ;)

Class II vehicles.  Jango's Slave I was shown, but in a new triangular-shaped packaging with the Vader design.

[sarcasm]Good news everyone - the super-popular mini-Slave I is being carried forward into the Fall Class II assortment!  [/sarcasm]

Triangular shaped packaging?  I'm interested to see what those look like...  doesn't sound like something that will stack nicely on retailer shelves.

From spies at German Toy Fair from JediNews UK (I've bolded the most interesting parts):

Quote
A new line called "Mission Series" was shown. This is a 2-figure open-boxed set with a window flap. Packs on display include:
- Vader and Interrogation Droid
- Battle Droid and another character

I have no idea what these are (Black Series or Movie Heroes).  Could be really interesting if they are new (like the Kmart Endor two-packs last year), but I suppose they could just be lame repacks too.  Hrm.

Over in the Movie Heroes line, there is a new Vader card much smaller than normal with low-budget 3-3/4" figures that includes a tiny insert showcasing the character. Much like the Batman 6 line we saw last year. A new Ep3 Anakin figure was shown. This line is targeted towards kids on a budget. This line mirrors the budget Iron Man 3 and Ultimate Spider-Man lines that have already been seen but aren't out yet.

I guess that confirms the move to cheapo, $6/5POA style figures for the Movie Heroes line.

We've got a trusty source that says Hasbro is looking to kick off the 6" line in a big way at SDCC this summer... 

(here's where I insert the standard "always in motion, the future is" disclaimer - you guys have all seen how much the plans have changed since last August/Celebration 6)

If it happens, it's going to be a very, VERY popular 6" figure... or should I say figure set?   :-X

The Black Series 6" Figures / 6" Black Series - 2013 Wave 2
« on: January 29, 2013, 01:04 PM »
Only news we have so far on Wave 2 is that it will be another four figures...   thoughts/guesses?

I'll guess they keep up the 3 OT, 1 PT mix
- Jedi Knight Luke
- Princess Leia
- C-3PO
- Anakin (RotS)

(it'd be just like them to give Han the shaft until wave 3 or 4 with the way they've been treating him lately :P).
