I'm pretty sure this is the 3.75" First Order Stormtrooper Executioner (all of the backgrounds for the 3.75" Black Series are black)



Glad to see that these are coming out.  I wonder why they went with Rose in this assortment instead of Rey?

Also based on reading the article, I think it's the same kind of offering as before:  $12.99 per figure, packaged individually.  I think the writer probably should have made that a bit more clear.

Rose instead of a SA Jedi Rey is just confusing. I'm sure we're getting one but - what?

So will the scalpers buy up all these red guards, too?

Predict rows of Rose until at least summer 2018.

There's 4 different Praetorian Guards, so maybe Scalpers will be easy on them

Luke though, hopefully he's overproduced

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.

Story's from Hollywood Reporter.

Yeah after I posted this I saw the part about them all being 12.99 each. The original forum I got these from didn't have the Stormie pic, hence the Multipack thing. I figured a mod will edit any errors. :P

Yeah I think that is the executioner 3.75" fig there.  Only one knee joint.

I found 3 full cases of this wave today and they wouldn't ring up nor would they do an override for me at customer service even after I brought them the shelf tag and an older figure to scan.  :(

I found all four today at a Walmart in Wisconsin.  I bought one of each, and two of the Praetorian Guards.

I also had to talk the self-checkout attendant into manually ringing them up since they wouldn't sell.  Luckily she did, getting to Walmart is a huge pain the ass for me.

They were priced $11.92 on the shelf.

I saw something to the effect that there might be a November 1 street date on the TLJ 3.75" Black Series wave.  And that might account for the denials at the register.

Yeah, the boxes are labelled with Nov 1st date (see below).  I can't believe Walmart/Hasbro is expecting stores to get these cases in now and then just sit on them in the back until November 1.  No wonder employees are just putting them out and not giving two Fs.   :-X

Agreed. Here's hoping that WalMart is ONLY slated to get this wave and any other SA TLJ figures will be part of the return of the Vintage Collection. This way, all of the people who are using older TBS 3.75" figures to get these four scanned at the register won't be impacting the arrival of a WM exclusive TLJ Wave 2.

Makes little sense, there's nothing about the movie these reveal that isn't in the already released toys.

Got this wave just now! I only saw them because another guy had them and was scanning them at the price checker. I asked if there were any more and he gave me his extras saying he didn't want to horde, so I got very lucky there. Took them to the self checkout and played dumb with the clerk when they didn't scan. I remained firm in that I wanted to buy them and eventually the clerk had to type in the individual UPC code.

I think I'm more relieved to just be done with this awful line (outside of the Shoretrooper)

I just picked up this wave.  Checkout was predictably difficult, but eventually I was able to purchase Luke, Rose, the Praetorian Guard and Executioner Trooper.
