Ad: Nobody's waiting for Black Friday! Amazon posted a Up to 50% Off Select Star Wars Figures page. Click here to see everything, including several $9.99 Black Series 6-inch figures, $5.18 3 3/4-inch figures, and even some cheap Mission Series and Vintage stuff! Check it out. I took the liberty of sorting out some of the deals by type after the break.
Let's finish up the second wave of The Black Series with Princess Leia (Slave Outfit), a 6-inch figure that asks the question "so when do we get Jabba?" She's short, but so is Carrie Fisher. Is this truly the best Hasbro can do, or just their first attempt? Read on!
As of yesterday, I finally saw Boba Fett from The Black Series and all of his casemates in a Target store! Good hunting - but before you go hunt read Figure of the Day to see the new figure. You may have read the SDCC review a few months ago, and the figure is basically the same - read on!
I just got off of yet another plane so let's look at Greedo, the Black Series sensation that's sweeping the nation. If you pre-ordered the set online, you'd have it by now. It's pretty great - not as robust as Han Solo but clearly a lot of work went into this. Read on!
So kids, let's upgrade to the 6-inch Han Solo, which has alternate belts and alternate hands. You'll probably spend at least an hour just futzing with him once you open one - it's quite good and fun to mess with. You get two guns, too. Could you ask for more? Yes. Read on!
Now here's one you'll like. Pablo-Jill was released a few years ago with an excellent statue of a figure - gorgeous - but this new one is way more articulated, with the best wrists I've seen on any Jedi figure to date. Actual ball-and-socket wrists make this completely articulated figure streets ahead of the competition, easily making it the best prequel Jedi of the season. Read on!
Ad: Sith Happens! Entertainment Earth has pre-orders up for Star Wars Black Series 3 3/4-Inch Action Figures Wave 3, and just received the brand-new repaint wave Star Wars Class II Attack Vehicles Wave 3 featuring smaller starfighters and a mini Boba Fett's Slave I. Click through for pricing and availability, plus the elusive breakdowns. (And yes, it does give you a look at Darth Plagueis.)
So there's a new Stormtrooper in the 3 3/4-inch The Black Series line which you can buy online now as most stores haven't gotten any yet. It's basically the Dewback/Vintage 2010 Sandtrooper, minus the pauldron and backpack, with a different belt, and cooler guns. Read on!
I just got 6-inch wave 2 in the mail, but I already wrote Luminara Unduli up from The Black Series! So read that. She's a new sculpt with a removable hat, good deco, and an excellent sculpt, if you can get beyond the fact that your 2005 figure was probably fine. Anyway. Read on!
Do we need another R2-D2? Maybe. This The Black Series 3 3/4-inch release is from wave 2, and is essentially the 2007 Revenge of the Sith version from the 30th Anniversary Collection but without the flames and coin. Is it cool? Read on!
New! Mara Jade is shipping now - she's in stock at Entertainment Earth as I write this. The body sculpt and articulation are top-notch, with great accessories. But the hair? Well, read all about it in Figure of the Day.

With The Black Series' 6-inch action figure line, Hasbro is focusing on adult and collector fan favorites which means Darth Maul is a sure thing. Traditionally the one character from the first prequel that everybody agrees is worth owning, Hasbro did a great job on this figure and it's probably the best-looking action figure of Mr. Maul we'll ever see.
