Walmart Black Series 3.75" Wave 4
« on: January 4, 2016, 01:25 PM »
So, Wave 3 is becoming a bit more common.  Time to start thinking about Wave 4 again.  Here were the rumored figures, with (now dead) Walmart links:

- SW E7 BL VILLAIN TROOPER COMMANDER (Phasma  ???)
- SW E7 BL SECONDARY HERO FIGHTER (?)
- SW E7 BL SIDEKICK BATTLER BLUE (?)

Really hoping one of the bottom two is a TFA 3.75" SA Han Solo.

I really hope these guys are still happening! Ever since Walmart removed the links I've been dreading wave 3 was the end.

My guess is that they are Phasma, Han Solo and possibly a Resistance Soldier.

The UPC's for these still kick back the product information via Brickseek:


SW E7 BL SIDEKICK BATTLER BLUE - 46173528
SW E7 BL SECONDARY HERO FIGHTER - 46173529
SW E7 BL VILLAIN TROOPER COMMANDER - 46173530

The color code blue turned out to be SnowTrooper commander for TRU.

I would hope that one of them is TFA Han Solo - but like IndySolo said, the Blue code word was the SnowTrooper Commander at TRU, so maybe the "Blue Battler" is a SA regular SnowTrooper - which I wouldn't mind one bit, I think it's a great update to the design.

Another thought I had for the secondary hero could be one of the other pilots or maybe the secondary outfit of one of the main three new heroes - Poe had the Resistance outfit from the beginning, Finn was in his Stormtrooper armor and Rey of course has her outfit from the end of the movie - all three of those are fair game for SA treatment, would seem odd to get another version of a Wave 3 character in Wave 4, but you never know...

I'd be fine with any/all, but my wishes would be SA Han, Poe in Resistance duds, and a new FO character (any character, but Snowie would work for me).

Anything else though...  I'd probably not complain.  Rey in her costume from the end isn't real high on my list, nor would a Chewbacca TFA be, but yeah whatever.  I just am enjoying what they have done enough that I don't want the party to stop.

Based on the names?  I'm thinking that they might line up with these characters:

SW E7 BL SIDEKICK BATTLER BLUE - Chewbacca from Starkiller Base. Yes, an OT version of Chewbacca already got made in wave 1, but this version will probably be more in line with Chewie's appearance from TFA.  And I suspect that he'll come with a satchel and some charges from the sapper mission with Han Solo.  The "SIDEKICK" name really seems to lend itself to Chewbacca.  Who else really has that kind of role, after all?  And we saw the "BLUE" designation previously assigned to the TRU exclusive Snowtrooper Commander when it was listed as a BLUE TROOPER.  By my estimation, that BLUE tag probably means Starkiller Base.

SW E7 BL SECONDARY HERO FIGHTER - Here, I'm thinking TFA Han Solo.  The SECONDARY tag is a little offputting since a lot of people see this film as belonging to Han Solo, but really he is secondary in that this is the story of Rey, Finn and Poe stepping forward for this part of the saga.  And Han serves as a guide to Rey and Finn.

SW E7 BL VILLAIN TROOPER COMMANDER - This is probably the most transparent listing of all.  I think it's pretty obvious that this will be Captain Phasma.  She seems much more likely to be listed like this than say, General Hux.

I never thought of Chewie as the sidekick battler before but it makes a whole lot of sense. While I would prefer a newer molded character I could live with a FA accurate Chewie with the aforementioned accessories.

Further possible evidence?  Adam Pawlus posted an image earlier today on his Twitter feed of a Black Series 6" Chewbacca being scanned at a WalMart price scanner.  The name that came up was ALIEN SIDEKICK.  It doesn't match up completely with the SIDEKICK BATTLER BLUE, but the inclusion of that SIDEKICK name does steer things in his direction.

I think it might be Snowtrooper Commander, Chewie, and Han.  Chewie could be the "secondary" hero with added greys and snow aps, while Han (in Blue coat) could be considered a "sidekick" of the other heroes.  Then the figures would all fit together as a Starkiller wave.

They used "Sidekick" for the TFA Han figure too - the 6" TFA Han was listed as "SW E7 Sidekick Battler Black".  Maybe "Sidekick Battler Black" Is Freighter Han and "Sidekick Battler Blue" is Starkiller Base Han?

Here's a few others to aid the sleuthing...

SW E7 Villain Trooper Commander = 6" Captain Phasma
SW E7 Secondary Alien = 6" Zuvio
SW E7 Secondary Hero Battler Orange = 6" X-Wing Poe
SW E7 Sidekick Alien = 6" Chewbacca
SW E7 Villain Trooper Red = 6" Flametrooper
SW E7 Blue Trooper = 6" Snowtrooper Officer
SW E7 Lead Hero Battler White = 6" FN-2187 (Finn in Stormie Gear)
SW E7 Sidekick Battler Black = 6" TFA Han Solo

Why does Hasbro love Zuvio? He wasn't even in the movie!

Because they were impressed with him in the BTS and preproduction images.

Yeah, at this point I think Zuvio must've had a huge role and got edited out.  Poor dude.
