The Black Series 3.75" Figures / Re: Walmart Black Series 3.75" Wave 4

I'm wondering if the repacks could branch out to some more desirable ones.

Would love to the see the Royal Guard in that red and black box.

It's interesting that there was really only one TFA reveal, C3PO. Seems like the main thrust of all TFA figure product is already past it's peak which pretty fast.

Totally agree about the Leia, seems almost inconceivable that after all these years and technical advances that they can still get her face sculpt wrong.


From what you're saying, both R5-X3 and R0-4LO go with the TFA  figures... that's where I'll put them.

It took me my third viewing to find R5X3 and by then I had to dig him out of my TPM box to re-locate him.

I picked up the brown helmet version of the Resistance Trooper today.  The figure itself is pretty cool.  But is it me, or do the resistance uniforms look a bit uninspired compared to some of the Rebel uniforms of the OT.

The entire costume design of the resistance was uninspired. Looks like everything was made with felt.

Wave 3 is finally showing up on-line, but for some reason at more than $20 a pop. I hear Rey was more than $30. And this was through Walmart, not Toy wiz.

Well, after a concerted effort searching eBay once a day, I was able to acquire the final pieces to complete the original 2012 releases. I don't have all complete droids, mind you, but I have all domes, bodies and legs. It can be done! And it wasn't horribly expensive.

Hopefully I can get to Disneyland enough to get all the new ones now.

It would seem to me that these have sold more than solidly enough to justify continuing the line. I just hope both Walmart and Hasbro can see the very strong desire for premium figures and increase subsequent production runs.

Didn't even know there was a Kylo Ren version. Will keep an eye out.

EDIT: Oh, I thought an exclusive TRU version was being mentioned there. As far as I can find, there are only two TRU exclusives - Poe and Phasma.

I found the TRU exclusive Armor-up Poe. I had failed to notice that one was even out there to be had.

I found the Wave 5 6" and there's a lot of reports of this wave hitting heavy. Was the same with wave 3. But no sign of wave 4. How very odd.

Long over due, but i did start a trade thread for parts (in the trade section.)

Been putting this off for far too long. Missed a bunch of the wave one pieces and have been trying to trade/purchase to catch up.

Here's what I've got for trade (all wave 1):

R5 Green with white/green body
R3 Purple with white/purple body
R5 Red dome
R6 Yellow dome
R8 Yellow dome

R4 Blue dome (wave 1)
R2 Green dome

IF body parts are available with the domes, would take:

R4 Blue on a standard R2 D2 body
R2 Green on solid green/silver body

It's funny how it's feast or famine. We were all moaning about how nothing was on the pegs, now it's a glut of wave 2 product slowing the new waves from making the pegs.

And right back at ya Jesse! Helped a few West coasters out with some WM Black series wave 2 goodies that passed us by. Thanks a ton!

I kind of take it as a bad sign that we haven't gotten the official Wave 4 announcement. Yet, the line does seem to be selling quite well, so one would think it has the legs to keep going.
