Nothing here yet...  This isn't as cool a wave as the previous 2 felt, but I really want Han and Phasma...  I want Leia too, but man why can't they give us General Leia who's just so much cooler than this one ya know?

Han, he's Han...  I want a couple of him. :)

Same wiith Phasma.  I'd love to get two and take the 2nd and give her something of a more battered look and a cloth cape.  She deserves it.  She's the new Boba Fett. :P

Found the wave in MN today.  Very happy with Han.  Phasma is great. 

Leia... man, that face deco.  Those eyebrows.  One of the two Leia figs I found had a horrible eyebrow  (one was almost straight vertically) and pink paint drips (from her lip paint, I think) on her hairdo.   ::)


I want Leia too, but man why can't they give us General Leia who's just so much cooler than this one ya know?

I thought for sure it was because the General Leia outfit was going to be a 5POA TFA figure (like the way they did Han in each line with the more "familiar" look as 5POA wide release).

Now that it seems like 5POA from TFA is drying up, maybe 5POA General Leia isn't such a sure thing anymore...?

Customizing is becoming much more a necessity, hah.  Yeah TFA stuff...  it is weird how they're just moving right onto the next thing.  Truly we were spoiled with the way the line knocked out so much obscurity over the decades.  The way it is now, you may get something obscure, but it might've been on accident (Zuvio).

For those of you who found the new wave, what other 3.75" Black series figures did you find?  Because I found a lot of Finn, Poe and Kylo Ren today at the stores that actually had some in stock.

That looks like the mix I saw too - 2x TFA Han, TFA Leia, Phasma; plus 1x each for the six figures Steve listed.

the floating holster...

Holy ****, Jesse.  You may be the only other person that appreciates this as much as me, but I'm going to post anyway.  Check out the #figureporn on this Starkiller Han's holster:



Perfectly executed.  Separate belt that fits his hips perfectly and is attached by peg to leg.  Doesn't even impede the ball-joint hips all that much.  Would be perfect for a tauntaun riding Han custom.  Just so perfect.  Such a shame it's hidden by the winter coat.

Going to be buying a few extra Starkiller Hans just for these legs/belts to upgrade some older Han figures.

I just hope I CAN find them. :)  Yes, that's very much awesome and appreciated. 

The only thing I like better maybe is the separately sculpted loop (Bespin Luke), but beyond that, this is ideal really, plus you can unplug it (I assume) for more extreme poses if needs be, so this is way more ideal in that regard.

Endor Han still looks like **** because of this issue alone, but the barrel chest surely isn't helping him either.

Man those look good. Well, outside of the paint apps on Leia's face, which is a shame because from Jeff's pics that looks almost exactly like modern day Carrie Fisher.

Guess I'll start hunting for these, although my stores are usually 3-4 weeks behind everyone else... if they ever get any stock to begin with.

Dropping these pics in here for those who don't Twitter...  and yes, Leia's eyebrows are really that bad in person.  :-\

New Phasma looks rockin' and a good bit taller which I personally appreciate.

Oddly enough...that might be the most realistic looking Leia yet.

Looks like the return of the monkey face Leia to me.

I'm really getting so truly anxious for all three of all these action figures here.  I can't wait until they just become available.
