Re: Star Wars Black Series discussion

Thanks to the many peg-warming Greedo and Leia figures everywhere, no way the retailers will order more. Even clearance-priced at $10, they are still not moving... lol

Re: Star Wars Black Series discussion

Yea, I'm guessing the mistake was making Leia and Greedo apart of wave 2. Or probably the retailers overstocking on the wave 2.

They have to at least release the Vader wave, they know he'll sell for sure!

Re: Star Wars Black Series discussion

Is there any alternative to bbts.com and the local game store? Apparently walmart is not carrying them any more.

Also it's been almost a year since I've seen any new ones there.

Re: Star Wars Black Series discussion

Posted this on another site. Thought I'd share here as well.

I've been having a hard time figuring out all the waves and what figures are repacks so I've done some research and summaried the official 6" series waves.

Can't believe how hard these are to find yet they are shelf warming in the states. I never even saw wave 4, 5, 6, or 7 at retail like the US did. 8 and 9 are preordering now.

Clone Trooper (Attack of the Clones)

Jedi Knight Luke Skywalker
Sandtrooper (Black)


WAVE 6

Obi-Wan KenobiI
(Episode III) (REPACK)
Tie Fighter Pilot

Re: Star Wars Black Series discussion

I wonder why repack Obi-Wan for wave 6, he seems to the warmer from wave 3. Just need wave 5 Chewie, Vader, Luke, and wave 6 Yoda and I'm done with black. Would have bought wave 8 Palpatine if he came with his saber.

I hope they release a Qui-Gon and Mace soon!

Re: Star Wars Black Series discussion

Yoda on its own seems to be sold out everywhere I looked online :/

I checked BBTS and you need to get the wave bundles (minus repacks) to get Yoda, Palp, Bossk etc. Problem is, the cost per figure would be $30 Canadian and that is not including shipping :0

To me the cost from the states is too high and with no source in Canada 6" Black doesn't work for me. This is unfortunate as I am complete up to an including wave 5 which I ordered online before the Canadian dollar dropped.

I feel the same way. Nearly $40 after shipping and exchange is pretty steep. I think toys r us might be the only retailer left, aside from the local game/comic stores, which are just as expensive as bbts.com.

Re: Star Wars Black Series discussion

Get it while you can. Ive bought twice from them before and it was a good transaction.

Only other reliable place is as the quarterly toy shows. They always have them. Expect to pay between $25 and $40 though. Got Yoda for $30 at the last show.
