Last night, Jimmy Kimmel had a special “Force Awakens” themed show featuring the stars of the film and director J.J. Abrams. Check out the custom 6″ Black Series version of Abrams as Han Solo and Jimmy as Princess Leia which incidentally provides a pretty clear look the upcoming 6″ figure – the body and soft goods anyway.
Thanks to HunterPR’s Justin Aclin for the heads-up.

All kinds of fantastic items are available… the prices are fair, the quality is the best I’ve seen, and orders are received in a timely fashion. For more details, check them out here and share your thoughts in our forums.

On any note, head to the forums for a closer look.
