Walmart Black Series 3.75" Wave 9 (TLJ Wave 1)
« on: August 10, 2017, 11:56 AM »
Once again from Yakface, who have been hitting it out of the park lately, news on a rumored line-up for the first batch of TLJ BS 3.75" figures -

Rey (Jedi Training)
Luke Skywalker (Jedi Master)
First Order Executioner
Elite Praetorian Guard

Looks like they will be one wave available close to Force Friday II (Sept 1st) and not split up into two waves (like the Rogue One figures were).

Will be interesting to see who actually has them available - Walmart plus on-line/specialty shops or will TRU and Target carry them too?  Also, how will they sell?  Will folks buy them now or wait, hoping for them to show up on TVC cads next year?

I'll buy now personally but I wouldn't mind buying again of course.  The two army builders are nice that they're new and not rehashes.  I'll not want quite as many as I usually do but I'm still down for a couple of each.  Rey and Luke I'm just excited to have right away.  Wish there was a Poe in the kick ass jacket ala Han's favorite clothing store.

That Praeorian Guard is gonna be interesting.  There are a few different helmet designs we've seen so far in images.  Hopefully the heads on the SA will swap with the 5POA versions to help diversify the SA options...

So who is the praetor of the First Order? No one seems to know.

If these are out for Force Friday, will make an interesting dilemma as far which figures I buy. Nah, I'll buy them all.

I figure worse comes to worse and I'll either have to hollow a head out or fill it in some and do a swap.  The one helmet looks strikingly like the EU extra bucket the TVC royal hmguard came with.

I would MUCH rather grab these than anything 6 inch. I've been debating selling off my 6 inch figures for a few weeks now.

My concern for these is I'll be on vacation during FF, and these will be hard to obtain.

So what's this about TBS 3.75" no longer being exclusive to Walmart? Does that mean other brick and mortars such as Target are expected to receive them? Or does it just mean etailers like EE and BBTS will be able to order them from Hasbro?

Nothing official yet, but Previews/Diamond solicited the two Rogue One figure cases recently, so at least they are going to be made available via comic shops.

There are hints that online shops will be able to carry them, but nothing on whether places like Target or TRU will be carrying them...

Thanks Jeff. Disappointing to hear that we're not likely to see any other brick and mortars get the TBS TLJ figures. My concern for my part of Chicagoland that with the TFA Han wave still filling up pegs, the Rogue One waves barely showing up, and the Proto Fett wave never appearing there is such a bottleneck at the distribution centers we won't see the TLJ figures next month. From what I've seen around the net, it appears this could be the case around much of the US, such a shame...

Saw these pop up as part of a rumored SA 3.75 inch Walmart Multipack. Can't seem to find any other info on them anywhere though.

Not sure it's a multi-pack.  I know where you're coming from that though Diddly, on the wording in the article, but it's sounding more like just an "assortment" how I read it.

I doubt these are part of Force Friday.  Why would anyone bother to buy the 5 POA figures?
