Hasbro has provided us with some official images for your visual enjoyment of their awesome new Black Series Wave 3 reveals at Celebration Europe over the weekend, including a new 6 inch Bespin Luke and 3.75 inch Darth Plagueis!
Our sponsors at BigBadToyStore.com are now taking pre-orders for cases and singles of wave 2 of The Black Series 6 and 3.75 inch figures. Be sure to lock yours down today and check out the full listing of pre-orders and latest arrivals after the jump!
Welcome to Q&A! Let's talk Vintage Retro Figures because that's on everybody's mind thanks to Super 7. Let's also talk Super Shogun Boba Fett while we're at it. And let's talk about Supporting the Toys that Matter - is it better to be cheap, or help a wave 2 come to pass? All this and more await you in July's final and mildly off-topic Q&A! Send in your questions for next week, and kindly read on.
The bad news: it sold out. The good news: it's coming back in wave 2, minus the carbonite block. It's The Black Series Boba Fett as Hasbro's debut super-articulated 6-inch action figure. It has more articulation than ever, and the detail is pretty good too. Oh, and it's scaled to that Hoverboard you got last year from Matty Collector. Want to know more? Sure you do - read on and watch the video!
Hasbro held back a bunch for Celebration Europe! Jedi News in the UK already has the scoop, click here to see 6-inch Bespin Luke and a Stormtrooper, plus what may be a part of Anakin Skywalker in there. But wait, there's more!
Ad: It's time to order new figures! Get your order in for the Star Wars Black Series 6-Inch Action Figures Wave 2 Case, with 1 of each new figure, or get the Star Wars Black Series 3 3/4-Inch Action Figures Wave 2 Case with free shipping! Click through for pricing and availability.
It's up now - but out of stock! Keep checking back to see if the Star Wars The Black Series Boba Fett and Han Solo in Carbonite Figures becomes available again. The Angry Birds Star Wars Special Action Figure Set is in stock as of this news story.
The Black Series 6 and 3.75 inch assortments have also been spotted at Target stores in Southern California. That's two places to start hitting, hunters. The 6 inch series is only shipping one case per store, and at 1 per case, will be tough finding during these early shipments. Any reports for Walmart or K-Mart? Be sure to send them in and Happy Hunting!
They're here! Both Black Series 3.75 and 6 inch assortments are now hitting ToysRUs stores. We found ours at the store in Chandler, AZ. 3.75 inch is retailing for $9.99 and 6 inch for $19.99. Happy Hunting and send us your reports if they're hitting the other big box retailers!
Just a reminder for our readers that the SDCC exclusive Black Series Boba Fett and Han Carbonite should be available in limited quantities at HasbroToyShop by today or tomorrow. The set retails for $44.99 and will also be available at Celebration 2 Europe next week. This hot exclusive sold out by Friday night of the show along with the Vintage Early Birds set. Good luck in the hunt!

We're back! This should be back to normal soon so let's get started with Q&A and hope this isn't filled with duplicates - we talk Droids, the new lines just hitting now, more on The Black Series, and other stuff in this column I penned about a week ago. Ask your questions for next time!
