So with the recent Black Series rumors from JediNews breaking down the Force Friday lineups, it looks like figures like Leia, Revan, Snowtrooper, etc. are being held until then. Does that mean that we are on a break with this line until then? I just got shipping notice for the Luke, Ahsoka, Kanan wave, so are things on a four month break now?

That's my understanding, yeah. Ahsoka wave, Starkiller Base Rey and then nothing til the SDCC Rogue 1 exclusive no one will be able to get, lol. Kind of a weird schedule but, Hasbro.  :P

NEW RUMOR: Black Series Wave 4 Restock On The Way, Waves 5 and 6 Discontinued

So that would mean we would see a reshipment of the Hux/Asty wave over the summer, while the Han/FN-2187/Jango and Ahsoka/Kanan/Luke waves are done. Hopefully this isn't the case because that is absolutely stupid.

WTF?!?!  I seriously hope this is not legit.  Because the alarmist bull**** that is the current stock & trade of JTA got old quite a while ago.

The only positive news out of that is that the Hux & Atsy wave would re-ship.  I only ever saw it at TRU, and foolishly passed on picking those up at the time because I thought they would be plentiful.  But that was a major miscalculation on my part.

This doesn't necessarily apply only to 6" Black Series, but with all the announcements today from Hot Toys, Sideshow, Gentle Giant, Funko, and others....it would be neat if Hasbro would at least announce a new figure or something, or give a preview of something that has been rumored/announced. There is still time, but it seems like such a missed opportunity to do something fun for the fans like virtually all the other companies have.

Do we have any idea if the DCPI # at Target is carrying over for 6" figures from TFA to this fall's likely release of Rogue One assortments?

I know Hasbro isn't really taking questions anymore, or really communicating anything, but has anyone received an answer to the question about stands for the 6" figures?  I know they're included with the 6" figures in Japan.  Just curious if that is coming to the rest of the world, or if there are any plans to offer these as accessory packs like the 3.75" stands.

Based on Jyn's regular packaging, they are keeping the assortment number, so I'd guess that DPCI will stay.

We have a new rumor about a 6" Black Series online exclusive.  It's reportedly going to be a REVENGE OF THE SITH Clone Trooper 4-pack, and will retail for $99.99.

Please pardon the quote for the smarmy commentary from JTA:

Quote
(We know who the vendor is rumored to be, but we're deciding to keep it anonymous at the moment as to not steal their thunder should this rumor pan out.) Apparently this set will be packaged the same way as Amazon's Trooper 4-Pack with and will include "battle damage" paint applications. What's more, this set looks to be based on clones from Revenge Of The Sith and this might be called out on the packaging. (Could this be a set that includes a Shock Trooper, 501st Legion Trooper, 212th Attack Battalion Trooper and a 41st Elite Corps Trooper?) The set is also rumored to be $99.99. We've also learned that orders will go up for pre-sale in October and supposedly be shipped out late October thru the holidays. As with any rumor we post, please take with a grain of salt until never confirmed by Hasbro.

IIRC, when Adam Pawlus was making the rounds to pump up anticipation of EE's astromech 6-pack exclusive, he also teased another upcoming exclusive multipack.  I get the sense that this may be just what Adam was talking about.  As for the specific Clone unit markings?  I think JTA is speculating, although those particular Clone units are some of the most high profile to choose from.

For crying out loud, if you know who it is, just say it. I hate that cagey bs. You just spoiled the surprise anyway no matter who it ends up being.  ::)

Most definitely EE. As for the figures being "battle-damaged", I hope that it isn't handled as that Amazon exclusive stormtrooper was. That deco was awful.
