I kind of get the feeling the initial production run of these was rather low, or the UK just did not get that many to start with.

I've ordered the archive ones, and will order the other achieve 50th ones when available, but only just realised there are 2 waves of archive figures already out there (without the 50th) looked on evilbay and not paying those prices, but will have to keep an eye out since i can't stand not have a pull sub-lines like that :)

Yeah I didnt bother with the older arhive figures as it was only a matter of time before a Boba got repacked (and it did) IG-88 seems to be a bit costly at the moment, I should get a Boskk. He seems easily available still so dont pay silly money for him.

I really did hope that Hasbro would of done all of the bounty hunters on the 40th cards to go with Boba, but it wasnt to be. I stuck in an order for Bo-Katan, two shore troopers and two sandpeople, kind of wished they had just reboxed them so I can open them without trashing the packaging. :roll:


Cody, Hoth Han, Luke and Thrawn ill grab when they are up.

I'm getting word of a couple of weeks for the pre orders to become available, however its more likely that as soon as they are up they are from in hand stock so we shouldnt have to long to wait to get them in our hands.

Hope they have enough.
In my lego world there was a bunch of new sets out today and with them some ‘freebies’ - namely the Harry Potter Book of Monsters - promotion was meant to last a month. By 11am today all new sets where on 60 day back order all the freebies that were mean to last a month gone.....

People are starved for things to do and buy so things flying off the digital shelves right now - FYI I missed out because I was too slow :(

Monkey, you missed out not because you are slow but up against technology. Bots.....That is what it has come down to, just about everything is getting snapped up for flipping. :evil:

I’m undecided on this wave. I’m at the point where I’m thinking of focusing on The Mandalorian due to space.

Damn, I really have some catching up to do. Constantly drained of energy and enthusiasm for anything is taking its toll for sure. Anyway thets have a look at what is coming, and I will give some opinions and thoughts...

Kenner colour inspired 6'' black series cardbacks for the 50 years of Lucas Films. Obi Wan, Jawa and Greedo. No Han with Greedo? These I think will be unfortunately Amazon exclusives, these are not my cup of tea. No issue with them in particular but I did hope we would get a new photo real Obi and a rerelease of Greedo for those that didn't get a chance to pick them up long ago. Maybe we will though; Greedo I feel would be hard to improve on if at all possible and Obi Wan isnt to bad, just a face paint improvement would be sufficient. Please, Hasbro Id like a decent old man Ben. That would give you a good excuse to do an improved Tatooine Luke, and R2.

Now this little lot has peaked my curiosity, is this a return of the expanded universe but for the Black Series line? I hope so. I really enjoy unique characters, especially from the comics. I have no idea what the packaging will be like, maybe something similar to the gaming greats line. Will we get a Mara Jade? Some new Jedi figures? Jaxxon is a really interesting choice, so will we see a version of Han to go with him? I dont think we will see these for a fair while though but who knows. These are ticking some boxes for me for sure.

Ponda Baba and Dr. Evazon are also rumoured for the Black Series line, not for me but anything Cantina related in 6'' will please a few of you I am sure.

A little addition that I don't think we will see for a while but comes from within Hasbro, and its not mentioned anywhere else. We may get a Death star gunner for the black series and VC line. Now I dont know if this will be in the original trilogy packaging or the Mandalorian line up. Did you spot them? I know I did even if it was only for a split second. Two please Hasbro... :P


So what do you all think? It looks like Hasbro are testing the waters with some of the more obscure and unique characters from the comics and legends so hopefully they will be successful and sell well. Now I know for many of you, myself included space is always a premium. Collecting both vintage modern and 6th scale really does make things problematic so we have to pick and choose, so ill try and post what I feel will be of interest to the majority of you here.

You can find other details of future releases over on Yakface too.
