3.75″ Black Series The Last Jedi Figures

Speculation and rumors have been circulating for a while regarding the characters selected to represent The Last Jedi in the 3.75″ Black Series assortment. We’ve had a discussion recently with someone that has shed some light to this and on their availability.

Images have yet to leak regarding the particular outfits that 3 of the 4 figures are wearing but based the deciphered code names we can expect. Rey (Jedi Training), Luke Skywalker (Jedi Master), First Order Executioner, and Elite Praetorian Guard.

These figures will be available for order on or near Force Friday 2 and are not exclusive to Walmart.

Later: What’s Up with Snoke?

    You know you yanks really make me laugh , you complain about peg warmers and not getting figures , yet uk never gets a mention how difficult it is for us to get figures , we have to rely on extremely high prices for figures so widespread in America, you should be grateful you get all the figures before we ever do , or in some cases not at all….i can mention our Hasbro distribution is a complete shambles and has been since the power of the force line ,we never got thrawn on the rogue one line and waves 3 and 4 was discontinued by hasbro before any was due …we don’t have a hasbro service either ,the black series 40th was discontinued here and not returned cause they was a bad man paint job …so we in uk also have our problems more serious than any of you…..so count your bloody selves lucky what you get and find and stop complaining….

    What an excellent selection for a wave. I’m not sure if I’d prefer Snoke over the Executioner Trooper. The Snoke figure from the BB set looks pretty cool.

    Is the 3 3/4 Inch Black Series coming soon to any Walmart ? Hopefully every store. This wave 10 is very good and no peg warmers. I know Hasbro has the capability to produce good articulation. Jason from Yakface do you know when we’ll know for sure. This looks like a great line and with Troopers it will never be a peg warmer. and the Shoretrooper (Who should be on the Beach in Calif. is freezing all winter here in Canada. Only after then does Walmart take him out to unthaw.) Ha Ha Almost a year they’ve been stuck to the peg.

  • I’m so confused about this line right now. Reports confirm that the 3.75 super articulated line will remain Walmart exclusive until the end of the year. Then Vintage Collection hits mass retail in the spring. So how can these not be exclusive to Walmart, when they have the exclusive until the end of the year?

    • I believe it comes down to internal confusion between separate divisions at Hasbro the design team and the sales team. At comic con Steve Evans the design manager for Hasbro stated that those figures will remain exclusive to Walmart until the end of the year. But the week after comic con, solicitations were sent to distributors saying that they can order and sell Walmart exclusives. I think they’re running into the same thing here. Also Walgreens hasn’t been able to sell through their exclusive 6 inch TBS C-3PO so entertainment earth is now selling them.

      • So are we talking about (possibly) being able to walk into Toys R Us and find 3.75″ Boxed Black Series, or are these going to be sold through online sources like Entertainment Earth?

        In response to EE selling Walgreens C-3PO, It’s hard to buy an exclusive item in store, when my local store never got a single figure. Not ONE. They have had the same two Black Series figures on the shelf since just after the TFA line showed up. They certainly purchased enough inventory, yet not every store got them. It’s the same with Walmart. They have a terrible distribution system where one store will get 4 cases of an item, and the three stores surrounding it get none.

        Due to the overwhelming amount of peg warmers at my local Walmart, we never got anything past the Jyn wave. No Cassian, no Scarif, Proto Boba or the others.

        It’s becoming ridiculous and I think it’s probably not a bad idea moving forward to have Hasbro consider either doing away with exclusives all together, or having them shared with a brick and mortar store AND on online retailer like EE.

          I think a lot of people are in the same boat as far as the distribution goes with any local brick and mortar storefronts, and fighting for items online is exhausting. (How do you like that Scarif trooper Jayson lol) Distribution to certain stores is just bad. I have 3 walmarts in my area and one will get a ton of shipments of 3.75″ Black series and the other 2 will get barely anything…Same problem with Marvel Legends…AND clearance items all different prices at each location. I did send a complaint to my local Toys R Us a while back and basically said “For calling yourself Toys R Us, it is pathetic that my local Kmart has more of a toy selection” and within a month they have had a way better selection from hasbro. I hope the 3.75″ line is made available at more stores, but I also hope they don’t carry the $12 price tag.

        So these could actually be in Walmart stores on FF? Sorry I keep bugging you and Paul about this. TBS figures are ALWAYS HTF, even repacks. I wa only able to get the ERG wave by going to Walmart on FF at opening. I want these figures more than anything else coming for TLJ, As I suspect many people do. This wave could rival the RO figures in difficulty to obtain. Obviously if I see them for pre-order somewhere I’d get them that way, but I really need a game plan for FF. last year was planned around getting the ERG wave, so I didn’t even go to Midnight Madness at TRU.

  • LaurenceQuint

    Finally some news on the SA figures. Here’s hoping they do more than Rogue One’s “two lead characters and two troopers” release, which is exactly what this sounds like at the moment.

    Surely we’ll need a new Finn and Poe (hopefully not just recycled pilot Poe), hopefully a new(ish) Kylo and would be over the moon for an SA Rose.

    • CT-7567

      From what I know, this is the last TBS wave. I was expecting TVC to begin with figures from TLJ. Unfortunately, Hasbro likes to use repacks for inaugural waves. I don’t expect to see any more SA TLJ figures until well into TVC. Plus we’re probably going to have to suffer through a wave from Solo. With that film coming in May, I’m worried about seeing Solo figures in TVC. Especially Han and Lando, portrayed by other actors, on vintage cards.

  • Gloriouscollector

    Great more availability. Getting tired of only going to Wal-Mart for these specific figures.

  • bmales01

    I look forward to seeing these guys. Thanks Jayson

  • Good, I can stop going to WalMart, finally…

  • Tosche Station

    That is the FF news I’ve been waiting for! But will they be in stores 9/1 or online?

    • Ryan M

      WalMart and Toys R Us will be open midnight usually on Thursday August 31st, Some GameStop locations will open at midnight as well. Also, Amazon usually releases them on their site. 2 years ago for Episode VII they released them at like 11:00pm on their site before TRU or other stores opened or put out display skids.

      • Tosche Station

        I’m just curious if they’ll be in stores on FF. The story says they’ll “be available for order.” Last year the ERG wave was in stores FF.

        • Ryan M

          Got ya. I wouldn’t expect them that early IMO. Force Friday will mainly be lightsabers, basic assortment 3.75″ figures, Funko Pop figures, and 6″ black series figures

  • ronstoneygold

    …annnnd, now we know the remainder of The Vintage Collection for 2018 as well.

  • Darth Bre

    Good news, always happy to pick up new figures, especially Luke

  • JohnMorog

    YAAAAAY NEW FIGURES đŸ˜€

  • JohnMorog

    This list sadly shows no 3.75 tbs, however, if they are available on FF2 I will be super happy to buy one of each since they are all new figures <3

  • Darth Parsley

    I can’t wait gonna need a couple of the FO Executioner’s & the Elite Guards

    • Ryan M

      I think the Gamestop 4 pack for $89.99 includes a couple of guards, but they are the black series 6″ ones

      • Darth Parsley

        True I tried to preorder them and they cannot be preorderd or Snoke with throne.

  • SlothFromHoth

    This is great news! I’m down for one of each. Really, really hope they are actually available on Force Friday, though.

  • Rivesjunctionite

    I hope there’s more to come.

  • RumSleg

    YESSSSSSS.

    I assume “not exclusive to Walmart” means that e-tailers will have them, but the real question is will any brick and mortar store have these on FF? I’m holding out hope that Walmart will.

  • Stereotypical Evil Archer

    Not exclusive? Are these in Target’s database yet?
    Edit: I’m guessing Amazon and Online.

    Hasbro Toyshop?

  • General Hux

    Awesome! Thank goodness Walmart is done with this line, hopefully they actually show up at other retailers though…

  • Jaken Wraith

    Nice final Wave for the 3.75 BS Fig’s. I am REALLY going to miss Boxed Figures, i prefer Boxes over Card’s any Day. I am NOT going to buy two of all the TVC Fig’s, so i am still kind of debating what i am going to do with the TVC. I want to collect them, but them starting at 116 will bug me since i will never go back and make up all the other TVC Fig’s and i am “completist”. And having to buy a second Fig just to hold it and check it out will take away most of the fun i get out of Collecting. I will prob buy them all but it’s really not going to be as fun for me as Boxed Fig’s are.

    • JohnMorog

      I like the cards cause they look nice, but then again, I am an opener through-and-through, so nice looking cards don’t mean much to me if they up the price tag.

      • Jaken Wraith

        I like the “nostalga” of Carded Fig’s, but they are not practical at all. I would actually be more happy if they made a Vintage Style Box.

  • CT-7567

    For order? Not at any retail stores?

    • The D.O.

      Was thinking the same thing……….

  • Good they aren’t exclusives anymore – let’s see if that helps making them available or not!

  • That’s great news!
