eBay listings for the first wave of new 6″ Black Series available on Force Friday confirm number designations for Luke (#46) and Thrawn (#47) and now reveal numbers for Vader (#43), Stormtrooper (#48). That leaves Rey at #44, Kylo Ren at #45, and we’ve known for while that Hera is #42.
Thanks to Joseph O. on Twitter for the heads up.
Could there be another as yet to be leaked 6″ Black Series exclusive in the form of a two pack heading to Toys”R”Us for Force Friday. I don’t know. Maybe?
The exclusives, the news, the reveals!
Force Friday is a few short weeks away and (aside from a few leaks) Star Wars fans have little idea what to expect. But some news was had at the two big Star Wars events in July — D23 and SDCC!
Shopko (Caldwell, ID) has gotten in on the breaking of street dates, and with it, we get the first look at the Rey with Praetorian Guard and Han Solo with Boba Fett Deluxe figure packaging. Click the link below for other products from the line due (officially) in a couple weeks.
Thanks to Instagram user @starwars_trooperguy for the news!
If you’d like a preview of some of the products available on Force Friday II, look no farther that the Toys”R”Us mobile website. Using my iPhone and the Google Chrome app, a simple search for “the last Jedi” brings up about 40 different products from action figures to role play items from Hasbro, Funko and LEGO. Why reporting monumental failure of this magnitude is frowned up is unbelievable. If anything, it points out systemic problems in procedures and practices of manufactures and retailers. It is not our fault leaks like this happen and we will continue to report them.
Thanks to @Jord3217 on Twitter for the report.
UPDATE: It looks like the power that be have addressed the problem with Toys”R”Us’ site.
