Not sure where to post these but I was paying for some Japanese figures on Amazon Japan and noticed they had pics of a few new Black Series 6 inch figures:













Sorry if these are old news, I definitely haven't seen them yet.

Not really a rumor now I guess but Hasbro teased, via twitter, a TFA C-3PO figure. :)



I think 3PO killed the red 3PO from hoth, and took that arm.  Scandalous.

At last! Worth the wait, unless they decide not to include the regular gold arm to swap out. That would be weak sauce.

Odd that it doesn't look like the elbows are articulated... I thought the Japanese Revoltech 3PO did a great job in that area, using removable pistons that allow for limited articulation due to the sculpt. Pic of what I'm trying to describe.

Yeah, it would be nice, but I think it'll be much more likely they crank out a separate $20 OT 3PO with the gold arm and silver shin instead.   :-\

Have there been any rumors/announcements/rumblings about a 6" scale Maz Kanata?

Yes.  They revealed a picture of what is rumored to be the Black Series 6" Maz (and Leia) on the motion picture thingy they put out.

So...I'm trying to gather intel on these Target POP displays that are starting to pop up around the country. Has anyone seen of these in your neck of the woods?

I have been tracking inventory counts with Brickpicker and was baffled for days why I was seeing spikes at multiple stores with nothing on the pegs and a 0 count shown in the storeroom.

Turns out this is why, they are sitting on some $%^&* piece of cardboard waiting for god knows what because there is no street date for this thing even.

For anyone that has seen this, curious A) where they are being found exactly in the store (Music/DVD section seems the most common place) and B) exactly which figures are being stocked here. I've seen multiple reports of [people finding the Jango wave but was really hoping to get confirmation that they are stocking the Ahsoka wave on this thing too.

Thanks in advance!

Where did you hear about them?  Target rarely allows for free standing manufacturer displays.  I have seen them used during Black Friday sales and there were a rew Star Wars ones during Force Friday at one store I went to.  That store had a second Star Wars area set up in the "Holiday section" where they rotate through Halloween, Christmas, Easter, etc. Would be nice if this was the wave 4 stuff many of us are still waiting on.

I've seen a few of them now in electronics depts. There is a Star Wars one and a game/trading card one I believe. The SW has the Jango wave of 6".

Thanks Jayson, I have seen the trading card stand but not the SW one (yet). No biggie if it's just the Jango wave....I am good on those.

I've seen one of these displays in only one the five Targets i've been to this week. Nothing new/exciting in it.

The displays are really nothing special.  Some current figures in both the 3.75" and 6" scales are shipping in them.  And just like on the pegs in the action figure aisle, the newer stock sells through faster than the older refresh figures.
