Upcoming Black Series figures?
« on: October 30, 2013, 03:03 PM »
Found these listings on Hasbro's Customer Service page:







Notable listings are for Chewbacca, Jawas, TIE Pilot, C-3PO, Darth Vader, Luke Jedi, Clone Trooper EpII, and multiple listings for the Sandtrooper.

Really hope these rumors pan out next year.  Chewie is my most wanted 6" figure right now, and the rest of that list fills a lot of big names as well (Vader, 3PO, etc.)  A very (almost totally) OT based list as well, which is fine by me.  Lots of good stuff on there.

If that jawa is a two pack I'll do back flips.

Nice, that's a total of seven new figures by my count, almost two full waves. Along with Wave 3, that I guess is slated for sometime early next year, that could take us through to the summer months easily.

Hard to argue with any of those choices, no hurry to see Padme or secondary PT characters.

Looks like the images were taken down, so just for the sake of having them all here, here's the rumored figures listed:

Chewbacca
TIE Pilot
C-3PO
Darth Vader
Luke Skywalker - Jedi
Clonetrooper (AOTC)
Jawas

There's also multiple Sandtroopers listed, so we'll see about those.  Plus, the deluxe Speeder Bike and Jabba.  So, including the Anakin - and the new 3 "new" figures per wave format - I guess we could be looking at three more waves here (with one more figures not known).  That might be the bulk of 2014.

I hate seeing a clone on the list so soon. I hope this doesn't mean we will see a different colored one every couple of waves as filler.

Greedo made me feel they were playing long game, but this list makes we wonder how long it will last. Tie Pilot is kind of of a lower rung, but want to give Hasbro money for more cantina patrons and Jabba cohorts, and I am wondering if this line will ever be it.

I'm surprised to see no Biker Scout unless he's coming with the Bike.  ???

I thought Hasbro said a Biker Scout and bike were planned?

I am thinking this will be part of a "Deluxe" assortment including Jabba, which to me leaves Jabba likely high and dry on a full Dais.  Maybe a Hookah and arm rest, but I'm betting no dais.

Pretty sure they announced the biker scout and his wheels at toy fair. Jabba without the dais would pointless so hopefully we see it.

I believe it was the Hasbro Panel at SDCC or Celebration Europe II where the Speeder Bike dlx set was first teased.  And then it showed up on the Hasbro CS lists a few weeks ago which pretty much sealed the deal that it is coming at some point...

Yeah the Scout and Bike are as close to locks as is possible and are confirmed by Hasbro...  Jabba, I can safely say is also pretty much a lock (but it's rumor blah blah blah), but I can't say a Dais is a lock.  Especially if it's part of an assortment.  That's a bit more murky.  :-\

Jabba without a Dias just doesn't cut it.

No dais might not cut it, but that may be the route they go just so that most people could afford it. 

If a basic figure is $20, what's a speederbike plus figure gonna cost?  $40-50?  What retail store is going to carry a $50 6" set in this market?  TRU maybe?

And what'll happen with Jabba?  If he's in the same assortment as the Speederbike, then that means a $40-50 Jabba without dais.  What would it cost with a full dais?  The walmart 3.75" set was what, $40?  Does that mean a 6" Jabba with throne would be priced at $80?  I can hear the outrage now...
