The Black Series Wave 6 sets of 6 are up for pre-order on Entertainment Earth.


Clicky to Go Order!

They're a nifty set of 6, and no retail hassle...  Been ages since I bought a toy in a store at this point, and I'm a happier collector for it thanks to little sets like this.

Case of 12 is up for pre-order at EE, with free shipping too!  September expected date.

2x #01 R5-G19
2x #02 Luke (Wampa'd Face)
2x #03 Darth Vader
2x #04 Darth Malgus
2x #05 Starkiller
2x #06 Yoda

Did they pre-sell out or take it down for another reason?

In addition to the set of 6 Jesse mentioned above, the case of 12 is back on the website again as well... 

I'm still not sure why EE pulled it off the site for a few weeks - don't know if they listed it too early and had to pull it or if they were worried about allocation or something, but it's back now along with the set of 6 half-case.

Got my shipping notice from EE tonight! :)

Hard to believe that once this case gets here, I won't have anything 3.75" Black Series to buy until next year...  unless there are some hidden exclusives out there waiting to be announced... but it doesn't seem like it.

I'm excited to get the R5 from that wave, at some point.  But yeah, that's gonna be a drought and a half...

plus no playsets.

Odd that these are already shipping from EE but never showed up on Amazon.  I've been ordering all of my figures from them via Prime for the last 3 or so years without incident.

My local TRU had the entire wave 6 except Starkiller. I picked up the R5-G19 and Luke Skywalker. I already have a Darth Malgus.

Oh, wow. TRU already. These just hit HTS (At least all but Luke as of this posting.) My have to hold off HTS and see if I can take advantage of the sale at TRU.

Thought I'd point out this story at SWCollector.com (which I first saw via Yakface).

After looking again at the one I opened last week, I can confirm that the #03 Vader does indeed have a taller neckpost.

As long as you don't get a bad head cast (like I did), it looks like this new #03 Darth Vader fixes the "head falls off when you look at it wrong" issue.

Good to see Hasbro fixing a toy with a flaw that bad.  I passed on this Vader...  This may get me to buy it now.

HTS has this wave in stock! Thanks to Jeff (or whoever tweeted out) for the info!

Luke
R5
Malgus
Starkiller

I snagged Luke, R5 and Starkiller (already have TVC Malgus and the rest). Looks like I'm done with The Black Series until next year...

I saw 2 cases of this wave at TRU yesterday. Despite having wanted Starkiller when he first came out in the VC line, I passed. The ones I saw just did not wow me.
I promise you I will not entertain you in the hallway, and do not attempt to walk with me

Does anyone know if there are any coupon codes floating around?  For just the two new figures it's $28.64 shipped, which is too much for two figures and I don't need anything to the point of getting free shipping with a $50 purchase.

10HTSDISC is the current coupon code available.

10% off.

It's a pretty good wave of repacks, and while I'm not a fan of Hoth Luke's overall figure, it does knock out the variation.  And I'll take an astromech any day of the week if it's one we don't have yet, so there's that.

Code HOLIDAY nets you free shipping.  All told, one probably washes out the other ultimately.  I miss 20% off and free shipping...  I'm sure all the whining about how things were packaged didn't help keep that going.
