We saw a new assortment of 3.75″ Black Series Titanium Diecast figures finally hit after months of rumors for Force Friday II, but now it’s time to look beyond The Last Jedi. The untitled Han Solo movie is set to hit in May 2018 (for now) and we know that Lando will have a significant role in that film. As a refresher for the character, it would make sense to offer a version of him in his iconic outfit from Cloud City. And where there’s one, there should be more, right?
Can’t wait for the U.S. release date for some of the 6″ Black Series retailer exclusives? Head on over to Robot Kingdom and preorder the Guardians of Evil 4pk., Supreme Leader Snoke with Throne, Kylo Ren with Throne Room, Obi-Wan Kenobi (Force Spirit), and First Order Stormtrooper with Gear
Robot Kingdom expects them for early October shipping.

The Star Wars Card Trader app has a great look at Supreme Leader Snoke via one of its award cards. As you can see, his gold robe is far more subdued than what were getting in the 3.75″ and 6″ scale from Hasbro, which looks even more ridiculous by comparison. Click the image above for a closer look.
Thanks to Corey from First Order Transmissions for the heads-up.

Twitter follower @shuttletyderium directs our attention to curious item on JohnLewis.com. There is a listing for what looks to be a standard release (sans throne) for Supreme Leader Snoke? He has been rumored to be released in this fashion for some time, but was probably delayed to for greater emphasis on the exclusive version.
UPDATE: Here is another preorder listing via Amazon.co.uk. showing him with packaging.
Well this was inevitable. Next month, look for a Rey and Kylo Ren two pack as part of the Forces of Destiny line. No official details are available yet but you can get a glimpse on the Amazon.co.uk site.
