Also, weird that they included a white holster for the 6" Mimban trooper only to have it not be able hold the blaster due to the new blaster sculpt with light on the side.

This Stormtrooper represents the Jedha Stormtrooper from Rogue One, re-using the sculpt Hasbro tooled up for the Mimban Stormtroopers from Solo.  Neither of those troopers had the holster, so no holster on the figure.


Eek! Never noticed that. Although I guess I can't blame Hasbro for being accurate, I still do.  :P

So it looks like the 3.75" Black Series Chewbacca is getting reissued in this wave.  Presumably, as VC 141.  As Chewbacca figures go, this is a pretty good one.  And the Early Bird version has been reissued at least a couple of times since the original issue (one of my favorite Chewie figures, personally).

I'm kind of curious about the cardback for this release.   Hasbro used the image from the original Chewbacca release on a Kenner card for the 2004 VOTC version, but that figure was styled like a TESB/ROTJ Chewie.  And I think that VOTC version was on either a ROTJ card, too.  Are they going to use that original image again?  It would be odd if they used the one from the Kenner ROTJ cardback.

From what Ive seen in databases, it is labeled as E4 so hopefully is the first issue Star Wars card back. That being said Revan is label as E9 so take that for what its worth.

Guesses as to case pack?

I would Guess:

2x Lando
2X Stormtrooper
1x Praetorian Guard
1x Chewbacca
1x Klaatu Skiff Guard
1x Yak Face

Not ideal for me, but I'd think this makes sense.

Except you forgot Phasma who is supposed to be in this wave too. 

I'm hoping they have enough sense to go 2x on the Stormtrooper, but who knows anymore at this point what they're thinking.

They need to double up on Praetorians as well.  That was HTF in the TBS line.

HTF at Walmart maybe, but it has been sitting in-stock at EE for a long time (all four from that wave are rotting at EE).  1x per caseto feed the carded collectors is enough for any of the Walmart 3.75" Black Series TFA/TLJ figures IMHO.

I completely forgot she was due at all. Okay. Then...

2x Lando
2X Stormtrooper
1x Praetorian Guard
1x Chewbacca
1x Phasma
1x Yak Face or Scariff Trooper

Better, but I should have put a little more thought into my reluctance of getting another Yak Face and Klatuu Skiff guard in that I had been thinking about pick up an extra of each for permanent display in my Barge as I keep a display of the latest versions of the original 93 +.

Looking at the new pics posted over at Yakface, it looks like they changed plans on Chewbacca.

The Chewbacca they showed at Comic-Con Paris was the ANH head Chewbacca (last seen in the 2014 Black Series 'tie pilot' card).  The Chewbacca they are showing now is the ROTJ head Chewbacca (OTC Chewie, last seen in the 2015 Black Series Walmart box line).

Not sure why they switched it.  Too bad they messed that up as the ROTJ Chewie looks dumb on the ANH card back.

It's still a good Chewbacca.  I would like for them to do a Solo version...would go nice with the Han Solo we have.

Put the bandolier from the SOLO 5 POA Chewie on this new TVC Chewie and you pretty much have a SOLO SA Chewie

Yeah....just need to get ahold of a 5 POA Chewie for that.  I'd rather Hasbro cater to my needs and provide me with the SA figure I desire!  :D
