Sponsor Entertainment Earth started shipping Star Wars: The Black Series Wave 4 sets and cases this week. We'll be looking at these next week in more detail, as is the way of our people. As far as I know, major brick and mortar stores haven't put these out yet. Click here to pre-order yours for a future shipment, if you haven't already. (Order a case, get two full sets and free shipping! Order a set, and get the set.) Quick impressions after the jump.
Itching for something new? Would you settle for half-new? Mission Series 2-Packs Wave 3 are hitting Target stores right now - I personally eyeballed Bespin Luke Skywalker (new) vs. Darth Vader (tweaked) and Obi-Wan Kenobi (tweaked) vs. General Grievous (new!) on Sunday. You can also order them online after the jump.
Ad: They're finally here! Pre-order your 6-Inch Black Series Star Wars Action Figures Wave 5 and get Free Shipping. Choose from Wave 5 or Wave 5 Revision 1 for even more fun! New characters include Jedi Knight Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, and Chewbacca. Pre-Order yours now - click here to get them!
Ad: NEW! Click here to pre-order Star Wars Black Series 3 3/4-Inch Action Figures Wave 5 right now and get Free Shipping. New figures like Sgt. Doallyn, Hoth Wedge, and the first new Ree-Yees since 1998 are all here! Entertainment Earth has a July ship date listed. Click through for pricing, breakdown, and availability.
Rounding out the new foursome from the great white north, the Snowtrooper is one of those figures you'll be mad you can't get more of. The split "skirt" lets him sit, but the wide sculpt may make it difficult to cram him in certain vehicles - but he's perfect for filling out your AT-AT's cargo hold.
From Canada, with love! This new Darth Maul is in stores now - there, not here - and is an all-new sculpt with a flared blade on the lightsaber, if you keep tabs on such things. He can fit in the Sith Infiltrator vehicle, stand, and fight. Can you ask for more? Probably, but you won't get it for the price. Read on!
We're back! (A Dinosaur's story.) This Obi-Wan Kenobi is today's Star Wars Figure of the Day! It just hit Canada and, so far, seemingly nowhere else. This wave's absence from store shelves and online pre-sells is conspicuous so far, but thankfully a kind soul managed to help me get a set to show all of you.
Heads-up: The Rocketeer ReAction 3 3/4-Inch Retro Action Figure is in stock at Entertainment Earth right now for $9.99 (cheep). This is the first all-original design and new character for the line to see production, which previously has consisted of 5 swell Alien figures based on Kenner's prototypes.
Hasbro officially releases photos and confirms the upcoming SDCC exclusive Black Series Jabba the Hutt Throne Room (including packaging details) and Black Series 6 inch Yoda. Check out all the visual goodness after the jump!
The headline pretty much says it all - click over! Tom Kane Reveals The Black Series Yoda 6-Inch Figure.
Last week, Star Wars and Disney bloggers were at the House of Mouse to check out new toys including Disney's own 12 3/4-inch scale electronic Star Wars action figures. It's important to note that these are not 1:6 scale (12-inch figures) - Luke is taller at 12 3/4-inches, with other characters like Darth Vader and Chewbacca exceeding 14-inches.
Each figure has a lot of articulation plus electronic lights and sounds - a decent deal at $29.99, wouldn't you say? Read on for more!
