TBS 6″ Wave 4 Pre-Order – Chewy’s Out

HSA4301Dlg

Entertainment Earth has posted pre-orders for wave 4 of The Black Series 6″ line. The pre-order confirms SWAN’s rumor of Chewbacca being delayed and having a couple sought after figures carried forward.

  • Rykrof_Enloe

    Now this is a stellar wave of figures. Two army builders and Fett? I might even order a case on this one. Hopefully they get Chewie in a future assortment. I’m actually starting to like this line a bit now…

    • Arnold Corso

      lol, give into the Dark Side!

  • Niktom

    Would have been nice to see them hold this wave till the Biker Scout was out and put him in there instead of the Anakin. Or heck, put in the Sandtrooper instead of Anakin. Close Hasbro… sooooo close.

    • Arnold Corso

      Sandtroopers are easy enough to get though. No sense in a wave full of repacks

      • Niktom

        Not for everyone…. never saw a single one out in the wild.

        • Arnold Corso

          they sell pretty cheaply on Amazon. If you want one, just get it there.

          • Niktom

            I’m fully aware they can be purchased online at an inflated price. Currently the cheapest on Amazon is $33.95… that’s $13 over retail! That’s hardly “pretty cheaply.” The point is, it’s a Trooper which time and time again has shown will sell easily for Hasbro. There is no excuse for them to be difficult to find on the shelf at retail. They should make another apperance in a future wave and honestly, the standard Stormtrooper should have been packed two per case. The demand is always there.

          • Arnold Corso

            please don’t be sarcastic, I’m trying to help you. I see the Sandtroopers on Amazon for $19.99 regularly. That’s not an “inflated price”, that MSRP. The price fluctuates, so you might have to keep checking.

          • Niktom

            Not intending to be sarcastic, I apologize for in inclination of that. Hasbro just irritates me in how they seem to screw up with every turn. They are finally putting out a really great product but still can’t see (what’s in plain sight) the things that their customers want the most.

            I have a Sandtrooper. Luckly a friend of mine in another state was able to get it for me. It’s a sad state of affairs when one has to turn to online sources to continually acquire the Star Wars toys they want… often at an inflated price then shipping to boot. Hasbro’s poor choices is why many Wal-Mart stores completely stopped carrying Star Wars items nearly a year. This was the case for all 8 of the Wal-Marts in my area. Additionally, the Target selection and shelf space for SW product is abysmal. My three kids have lost total interest in Star Wars toys because of the lack of product in out area. It’s sad.

            Again, I apologize for any sarcastic inclination… just really tired of Hasbro slapping the face of those who feed them.

            no worries. Fully agree – Hasbro’s management and distribution teams don’t seem to get supply and demand economics

          • Xo Tica

            On Amazon Uk he is going for roughly £40 ( $64) . If I could buy him for what you guys could , I would be extremely happy.

      • Xo Tica

        I and many others would disagree ith you there. Hasbro should have a wave which contains a host of figures which many of us either missed first time around , or for army builders. I have never seen the Sandtrooper peg warm .

      Biker Scout is in the Deluxe assortment.

      • Niktom

        I’m aware of this and it would have been nice for Hasbro to wait till it was out and put it in the regular assortment as well (minus the speeder bike of course) along with other “troop builder” type of figures. They could make lots of money and have very few peg warmers if they would give the fans what they want.

        • http://www.jeditemplearchives.com/ Paul Harrison

          Oh, well, I agree with you there. And I also will state firmly that the Stormtrooper should be carried forward into the next 3-5 assortments as well. But, this case assortment gives me hope again.

          • Niktom

            Wouldn’t it be great if they just did a case of nothing but Stormtroopers? 4 in one box…. what an idea! But alas… they have someone much more keen to marketing trends than myself working for them and I’m sure getting paid much more than I do.

    Sound the Alarms…Hasbro did something that makes SENSE!

  • Jedichris24

    Is this real life???Hasbro???WTF!!!

  • charchar

    I… can’t… believe… hasbro… did… something… right…

  • dan vader

    Finally, Hasbro is starting to get the 6″ case assortments right. Now if they can tighten up the paint apps a premium line will be born. Applause to Hasbro for providing a light at the end of the tunnel.
