Walmart Black Series 3.75" Wave 2
« on: September 4, 2015, 02:29 AM »
Not online yet, but it sounds like Wave 2 will be:

- ANH Princess Leia (Yavin Ceremony)
- TFA First Order Stormtrooper
- TFA Kylo Ren

You can kinda see a preview of Kylo in this pic from Yakface's Facebook page (middle right or photo).  You'll see there appears to be a 3.75" Rey figure in there too... not sure if she'll end up in this wave or Wave 3.

I'm not on Facebook. Where did Yak Face get this image from? The stuff on the shelf are the Disney die-cast figures, right?

^I think it was a twitter post from a CNBC reporter that was doing a story on Force Friday. The full image was of her standing in a room filled will all kinds of TFA products.

Yeah, it was some financial reporter story on the future outlook of the movie/merchandise.  Probably CNBC like SNTrooper said.

The wall is full of the Disney 6.5" Elite Series figures, yes.

Yes, CNBC's entertainment business reporter, Julia Boorstin, was at Lucasfilm in San Francisco reporting on Force Friday.  You can see some of the Black Series 3.75" figures in the shot, and I'm pretty sure one of those is Rey.

I know her head is huge, but OMG is that 6" TIE Fighter enormous!

I'm sure these will be a BLAST to hunt for, considering the final Black Series wave was the first non-lightsaber items Walmart has stocked since 2012. The fact that these are new SA characters that are store exclusives will probably make them even harder to find. AND they're coming after a first wave full of terrible repacks.

I have a feeling we'll be seeing an awful lot of that SA First Order Stormtrooper.

Those are looking pretty good.  And I think that SA First Order Stormtrooper is going to be a hot commodity!

These are why I haven't freed my TFA 5 POA figures yet! Love 'em. Now I just hope I'll be able to get 'em.

Love all 3 and hope I can get a handful of troopers.  Don't intend to army build like I did for the OT, but squads would be neat.

I've been off the Army Building thing for years now - that Stormtrooper is the first thing I've seen in forever that has me thinking about it.

They should sell a 6 pack for $40 or $50 - just a white mailer box or something where the figures are in baggies.  I'd buy a few of them...

Now i am, very slightly, regretting buying the 5 POA version of the new stormie. No going to return it though. Glad that this line isnt quite dead.

Love the mail away pack idea. Bland packaging since they are going to be opened and there is no need to "sell" it.

Surprisingly, the more I look at Black Series Kylo Ren, the more I'm questioning whether I really need one. I'm actually quite happy with my 5 poa figure, it's really quite nice from a "sit on the shelf and look cool with the many hundreds of other figures I own that are basically in neutral poses anyway" perspective. Sculpt and paint quality look about even, the only thing is the articulation, which I think I can probably live without, since most of my stuff ends up in neutral poses anyway. I'd definitely grab a couple stormies for a squad though, mix them in with a few of the standard ones, cuz why not. The pose-ability is a little more noticeable if you've got a squad all standing completely identically.

I like these.  Finally a Kylo Ren that can wield a lightsaber with two hands.
